Secret Message Kits

I remember one of the rare occasions I received a Valentine’s day gift.

I know, you’re shocked, right? Surely, someone as stunning as me should be taking the morning of the 14th February off work so I can await the postman and his overstuffed sack of mail just for me!

Truth is, even the card from my Dad (who I could always count on) stopped a few years ago.

Anyway, Once upon a time I received a rose, left anonymously on my front door.

Men are strange fellows!

Seriously, if you’re going to pretend to visit my brother and act surprised that I got a rose from a secret admirer, which you happen to find when you arrived…

…Don’t buy the flower from my sister’s florist shop!

I’ve recently been making a series of mini craft kits designed for beginners.

Each kit comes in a small gift box, so the finished item can be given in the presentation box as a present.

I’ve made a couple of animal brooches (more on their way)

They come with almost everything you need to make the finished brooch, you’ll need scissors and maybe a pencil.

My latest kit though is perfect for lucky crafters this Valentine’s Day.

It comes with all the materials you need (Yep, you need to provide your scissors and a pencil) to make your very own Valentine’s day brooch.

The tiny wool-blend hand-stitched envelope is a brooch your loved one can wear, and hidden inside is a hand stitched love message just from you.

What a wonderful way to celebrate the season of love…

…and if any of my family are reading this, hint at my dad that I want my card!
