All the lovebirds out there will be quite happy with this quick and easy project from How About Orange: paperclips shaped as hearts. So lovely! I still couldn’t make a perfect one; my clips are too dang rigid! But they are still cute! Anyway, these are perfect to send together with your Valentine’ s card, I guess.

Valentine’s just around the corner now. Even though I’m as single as can be, I still love searching blogs for cool inspirations. While doing it this weekend, I found two of the cutest projects ever! The first is pompom in the shape of a heart! How sweet is that, huh? And why not combine two great ideas? Make a few heart pompoms and use it to spice up your gift wrapping (find the link to the post where I talk about the original idea here).

The second is a very much adorable crocheted heart that Jenni, from Simple Beans, adapted from another pattern. Totally cute and you can use ’em to make many more items.

I kinda like the idea of having summer just ’round the corner, but when it does arrive, I remember why I hate this season so much. Don’t really know about everybody else, but for me, summers are all about being very tired and sweaty and having to use tons of sunscreen to avoid getting overburnt. And even though I can thinks of plenty more reasons to add to this list, I find almost none to put under the ‘reasons to love summertime’ column. Daytime savings is one and the most important. I mean, it is really nice to walk on the streets at 8 pm and have the sun still shining a little bit, which wouldn’t really happen otherwise. Apart from that, I only want summer to end as soon as possible, bringing back my will to move again.
Anyway, these days haven’t been a total waste. Activities like reading like crazy, house searching and jewelry making have occupied my freetime. Remember when I posted about a very cool pair of earrings made of colourful buttons? So, I made some of those in two different sizes. (Actually, I think I may have already said something about it here, but I just can’t really recall.)
I also started to get excited about Valentine’s Day and made a few lovely bracelets, with hearts and pink beads and all that stuff. I only have a picture of this one, though:
I’ll get picture of the other items as soon as I start feeling a little bit better with all this heat.
