Sweet Valentine

I was so excited to have found this great post over at Creature Comforts! EZ has a posted a tutorial, complete with downloadable PDFs and illustrated directions for creating a personalized candy bar for the one you love!

Who can resist their favorite sweet treat, especially when it is so deliciously packaged! Boring old Valentines this year? I think not!

A girlfriend of mine is expecting a baby boy in March, and we were just discussing how owl crazy we both are. Here are a few boy-centric owl delights I found on Etsy. Maybe there is something here for the nursery???

This print by BadBird would be super cute in a bright red frame.

This Linen Tea Towels would be really cute converted into a pillow!

Who wouldn't want to lounge around in this adorable Lounge Set from Mountain Aven Baby??

This BirdNerd print is gorgeous!

This Hootie the Owl collection would be a fab gift!

Make a sweet owl friend for baby using this awesome Owl Kit from Atelier Chouette. It comes complete with everything you need!

These would so sweet to keep toes warm!!

Lets face it, it never hurts to write things down, especially right after baby arrives! These To-DO list pads from BoyGirl Party are adorable!

A great shower gift for the owl enthusiast mommy-to-be would be these Monogrammed Organic Cotton Burp Cloths!

I am totally in love with everything from Marisa at Creative Thursday!
This White Owl Print would be so sweet in a little boys room!

Bacon Wrap Shawl!

It would be a lie to say that I haven't been neglecting my poor Creative swoon! I most certainly have, and I am not proud! But fear not, I have not vanished or given up I have just been overwhelmed and nuts! All is better now, and I am back!

You can thank this amazing Bacon Wrap, crotched by the amazing Lady Linoleum!! How could I not share this awesome creation?! She crocheted the whole thing with color changes so it would be reversible. Holy moly!
