It is freezing here!  OMG  we have had soooo much snow and by the end of the week, it will be 3 weeks since the kids were in school.  It is so hard to keep and 11 year old and 14 year old busy for three weeks.  They must go back to school next week.

Yep Valentine's Day will be here before you know it.  So I have compiled a fabulous list of Handmade gifts that your Valentine would love to get.

A card that can say so many things: I love you, I miss you, Thank you... I suppose it could even be used for less pleasant messages like "you smell." I'll leave that up to you.

I have one of these bags and I love it!!!

Big beautiful all purpose tote with three handy pockets inside and secure zipper closure. 

Made with durable upholstery fabrics and then lined and interfaced for additional support. Although this bag is super strong and heavy duty, it is not stiff or rigid so don’t expect it to stand on its own when empty. Who needs it to anyway? :)

Flowering Hearts are a pair of Sterling Silver Hearts embossed with flowers.

Great for everyday wear, they will go with so many outfits.

The earrings are about 1 1/4 long and almost 3/4 inch wide.
