Valentines 2017 & Giveaway

Another year, another Giveaway!

It is almost that time again, Valentine’s Day. The day to send an anonymous card to someone you have a crush on. The day were all the children in schools (in the USA that is) give each other a Valentine. That day to spend extra attention to your beloved. Or maybe just the day to send all your loved ones a card to let them know how special they are to you.

The stores here are already packed with cards, candy, chocolate. It s a huge thing here in the USA. I am still getting used to all the craziness and the expectation that children in school give all the kids in there classroom a Valentine. That means lots of work for mom’s (and dad’s).

Giveaway: 2 Needle Felted Hearts

CLOSED – The winner has been randomly picked and has been e-mailed. The lovely Sonja from Crafting with Sonja won two needle felted hearts! They will be made, wrapped and on their way to you soon. Hope you love them as much as we do!

Last year I made needle felted hearts for the teachers and crayon hearts for the children. I also added a giveaway, since I had so much fun needle felting those hearts. Actually, I’m looking back to last year and think: “let’s do it again.”. That means that if you entered last year into the giveaway and didn’t win, you will have another change! Enter in this giveaway to win 2 needle felted hearts, one for you and one for your friend.

The giveaway will run from January 19th until January 31st. You can enter once every day. The giveaway is open internationally.

Make your own Needle Felted Heart

Here you can find my previous post with instructions to make your own needle felted heart. For guidance I used this youtube-video. I was also thinking of adding a drop of essential oil, like rose or lavendar.

These are the materials you need:
-Different shades of red/pink/purple felting wool
Needle felting needle, or complete needle felting kit
Foam block
-Essential oil, lavendar and rose (if you want to add something extra)

    What a lovely gesture! I can’t say I have had any special Valentine’s Memories. But I am always happy to find a bar of good chocolate next to my bed when I wake up on Valentine”s Day💗
