Valentines Day

Here at The Creative Journal we are a little non-plussed by Valentines Day. You see we both already have celebrations on the 12th (my wedding anniversary and Amanda’s birthday)…so by the time the 14th rolls around we’re kind of a little over it and all special occasioned out! Not to mention the whole corn-ball Hallmark thing doesn’t really get us inspired.

So for the past few years we both admit we have been ignoring it happily.  BUT just recently we started noticing some pretty crafty people coming up with some pretty cool ideas and we started to get a little bit inspired. Maybe this doesn’t have to be a Hallmark holiday anymore?

So here it is… a few of the coolest Valentines Day bits & pieces we have seen. Some you can buy, some you can make but either way you can get your romantic on without having to do the work!


1. Studio DIY‘s ridiculously cute Heart Donuts & Heart Pinata. Is there actually an occasion where a donut doesn’t make it that much better?!

2. Long distance love?  Then you have to get one of these from CoverLove on ETSY!

3. Hearts & Kisses! An adorable set of free heart printables from Minted will have you all wrapped up. And the Smooch Bouquet from A Subtle Revelry is way more fun than a bunch of roses!

4. All that glitters…. Pelemele on ETSY has the most gorgeous range of gold glitter toppers & accessories.  A quick trip Donut King, throw a couple of these babies in and you have the perfect lazy romantic dessert!
