February 20th, 2013 | you are tearrific

I love all holidays. I know a lot of people especially hate valentines day – it’s too commercialized, I’m not in a relationship, it makes me lonely blah blah blah. Whatever it’s just another excuse for me to spoil everyone I love and make some gifts!

This year I went on a bit of a tea theme with my cards and gifts to close friends. Bad tea humor at its best. I made some heart tea bags and filled them with some valentines teas from DAVIDsTEA. (I used read my lips, hot lips, red velvet cake and peppermint amour). I also found this really cute DIY for painting hearts onto sugar cubes with red dye so I did that too and also made some candy bags. Who doesn’t love candy & chocolate?

Speaking of chocolate I’m actually on my way now to Toronto for a gourmet chocolate making class. It was my christmas present from my sister. I’m so frigging excited!! I’ve never made chocolates before and I’ve always wanted to. So I’ll let you know how that goes!

    Super cute cards! I sent out V-Day cards to my girlfriends, too. I plan to do it every Valentine’s Day from here on out. :)
