I love love. There’s nothing more beautiful than the honesty in love. Seeing two people who are brave enough to have completely given themselves over to each other is beautiful to me. That being said, Valentine’s Day has become this commercial day that makes us feel like we can never live up to the hype.
You shouldn’t be relegated to celebrating your love on JUST. ONE. DAY. Celebrate it every day.
However, that’s not the point of this post, is it?
Here are some amazing Etsy finds to celebrate the love in your life. Click on the photos and they will take you to their page where you can, if you’re lucky, purchase them. However, please be sure to check the turnover time of each item/shop.
Thunderpeep makes some amazingly funny cards and she’s so very creative, not to mention the creator of my logo. Plus. Her trolls are the handsomest in the land. I sort of wish they wore tight pants…
If you’re ever been on reddit or you’ve seen the toys you shouldn’t buy for kids feed on buzz feed, then you’ll know this store. If not, then you should know this store. Mrs McG makes some incredibly hilarious toys that are not meant for kids.
I’ve been a fan of Kiva Ford’s forever. If you’ve never heard of this artist then you’re missing out. His glass is so beautiful and I totally coveted his Christmas ornaments.
How cute is this necklace? Candiware is an artisan whose jewellery smells as delicious as it looks! Yes, that’s right, this necklace smells but you’ll have to click on the link to find out.
I love Minouette’s art but this is especially cute and very unique! How about art that changes colours when your valentine puts their hand on it? This would be a great gift for your valentine who is far away.
This next shop owner is insanely talented as well as a friend of mine. I once asked her to make a necklace using only a photo of my friend’s tattoo and she did it within a couple of hours and it was beautiful. Her work is difficult to define into one genre (classic tattoos?) (glam diva?) but she makes jewellery and it’s beautiful.
And really, you can’t have Valentine’s Day without some conversation hearts. Nail Kandy, a local polish and nail designer, makes beautiful nails! I own a pair. Not to mention? Her Mardi Gras nail polish was featured in People Style Mag!!! SOOOO excited for her, and super proud, too.
And, of course, you can’t have a blog without a little shameless self promotion. But at least I’ve promoted the others before me…
