THE INSPIRATION PINBOARD: Sweet Hearts

The Inspiraton Pinboard Sweet Hearts (1)Hello Friends and happy Friday! We’re a week or so away from the day of LOVE, so I thought I’d round up some beautiful “sweet heart” inspiration. Aren’t these ideas gorgeous? Enjoy the weekend ~ I have a jam packed weekend. I’m driving to my son’s college to see his volleyball game. They’re playing Stanford so it should be a great match. Then on Sunday, we’re celebrating my brother’s birthday and my  Dad’s 94th birthday. Which reminds me, I have to bake a cake too. Oh my!

EXTRA CREDIT: Tokens of Confection {Martha Stewart Living}

Mvalentines-day-06-rectangular-candy-boxes-0464-d111638-001The February issue of Martha Stewart Living is brimming with great inspiration. I love pretty packages and this story on turning ordinary chocolates into a special personalized gift with beautiful and unique packaging is right up my alley. Wood grain boxes are made by covering plain boxes with wood veneer and then stenciling them. A great way to package up treats without a heart or doily in sight.
