Valentine's Day Inspirations from Italy

To celebrate Valentine's Day on my blog. 
I thought I would just post all my 
favourite Valentine recipes and crafts ideas that I've been seeing on all 
my favourites blogs and websites; including a simple last minute Valentine's Card idea that you can make at home without spending more than a few dollars on paper and glue...from 
me to you! 

It's my way of sharing my love with all of you!

Hope you like them! I sure do!


Sweet Paul's - Valentine's Marble Chocolates.
This recipe is so simple and delicious. You just melt dark chocolate and melt the white chocolate on top and make the swirly designs with a toothpick. Does it get any simpler than this?

This lovely Valentine template is free from 
one of my favourite blogs, "This Lovely City". 
Instead of giving a card, you can write a 
Valentine's message or a love note.
Click on the link and download the template from the website.


And from Little Birdie Boutique, Martha Stewart Heart Cupcakes
Cut-out heart shapes, out of a chocolate cake or cupcake, 
with heart-shaped cookie cutters.
Just delicious!

Great Valentine's gift idea from Little Room L.A. 
Bake chocolate cakes or brownies and wrap them in brown paper bags 
with a red ribbon or string and decorate with little red or pink hearts. 
Delicious and simple!

And last, but not least, a simple Valentine's card that anyone can make quickly at home without much fuss. Here's one I made quickly in about 5 minutes. It brought back sweet memories of Valentine's Day when I was little. I realize it's a little simple, but I had time constraints on my hands, so I'm sure you can do a lot better with it.

And finally, something that I'm very happy about.
This is a St. Valentine's inspired drawing that I've been working on to give to my husband and it's finally finished. It took a while because I used a fine-tip colour pen to fill in the colours. I like the tiny marks and details that a fine-tip, ink-pen leaves behind.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day !

  8. Hi Erin!

    This posting was a pleasure to write! Also, I love all the pink in this posting! I never grew up with pink and now I just love this colour!

    We had a very unromantic day cleaning the flat from top to bottom. However, we enjoyed a beautiful day the day before, so it was all good.

    Thanks for your lovely wishes!

  9. lovely! hope you had a great V-Day and have a great weekend!
