It's Valentine's Day on Saturday! How will you be spending yours? I already know what I'll be doing, oh yes - spending it with my one true love to which I dedicate pretty much all of my time - my business! The day after Valentine's day something very exciting is happening so I know I'll be at the studio prepping for most of the day, more on that later!
So Valentine's Day is upon us. Some describe it as a "Hallmark Holiday" created by the greetings card industry, and some say it is a wonderfully romantic day. It's a day about love - but I do worry that there's a lot of expectation surrounding one day. You should feel loved every day of the year!
However, love is amazing! Having someone who gets your jokes, makes you cups of tea, cuddles you when you need it, and tells you to get a grip when you need it too - to me that is love. &…. that doesn't need to necessarily be a partner, it can be a close friend, sister or parent. These people need to be told they're loved all year around, however if you fancy letting them know on Valentine's day that's especially awesome too! The range has been designed for couples and friends alike.
The range I created this year has gone down a storm! Each few days I have a new bestseller, and it's wonderfully exciting to know plenty of folk are option for a bit of humour in their card giving. The single badges cards are £3, double badge cards are £3.75 and stitched cards are £3.50. Each are handmade in the Oh Squirrel studio to order.
Click on any of the links to take you through to the etsy shop to where you can by the cards. I also have a range on Not on the High Street too.
Order before Thursday 12th February to ensure your card gets to you on time (domestic shipping only, further afield it may not arrive in time so it's at your risk). Orders placed before 3pm on Friday will be dispatched the same day by 1st Class post so should arrive on Saturday, but as I am not your postman I can't guarantee.
I still can't decide which is my favourite, however this Tinder inspired card has got a lot of attention and a lot of laughs! I will be giving this to a lot of my favourite friends this Saturday!
& as for gifts to go with your cards? Here are just a few, complete with links to where you can purchase.
Monogram Fabric Tags - £3.50 each. Perhaps select both your initials, and then a third one could be a heart? Simply order 3 and let me know the initials required in the box at the checkout.
& I know what you're thinking! Pencils would make a great gift too… they will be online this week, keep an eye on instagram for updates
