Handmade Valentine’s Day Card Tutorial Elephant in Love Valentine card (by Maria Palito)
P.S.- LOVE IS IN THE AIR! Whether you heart St.Valentine’s Day or simply steer clear of it, we should always remember to love ourselves day in and day out, (Hallmark holiday aside). I will trade a box ‘o chocolates for jewelry any day of the week, and I’m sure most of you would too! Here is my DIY love life advice: Don’t wait around for your crush to come through with bijoux…. P.S.- MAKE IT YOURSELF! Follow in the footsteps of leading sweethearts Audrey Hepburn and Carrie Bradshaw, who always seemed to be doused in layers of pearls, while looking for their leading man.
To create a stand out, chunky, pearl statement necklace just reach for 3 strands of long pearl or beaded necklaces (experiment with different colored options), wide ribbon, and a decorative brooch.

Picnic Blanket | Design Love Fest
I love picnics. I love all the little nibbles, the drinks and the tippy cricket! But I never have a good blanket - it’s always a wool rug that ends up covered in grass, prickles and soda. This ombre style blanket is made using a drop cloth with a plastic backing meaning easy clean up. I’m going to make one in preparation for Summer and Moonlight Theatre in the park!
Preserved Lemons are used a lot in Moroccan cooking.
