Sharing Love - Valentine's Day Blog Hop

It's a Valentine's Day Blog Hop with TONS of inspiration; hope you'll check out all the amazing creations!

BUT before we get to the creation; I WILL have a prize (or maybe two), just didn't have time to photograph before leaving on V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!! Whoop, whoop - leave a comment and tell me the best gift you have given or received for Valentine's Day for your chance to win!

I decided to get adventurous and create gifts for all our employees so this is just a tiny sampling of what I created, what is inside each bag and then an appreciation page for each employee.

The first thing I did was create an 8 1/2 x 11 page for each employee with a cute Valentine border and then lines on the page for writing; each week, we took 5-6 employees and everyone else wrote notes of appreciation about that employee; seriously WHO does not love to hear good things about themselves, particularly when it comes to their co-workers, #amiright?

Then I worked on creating these gift sacks filled with candy, hot chocolate and a cute little straw; the envelope you see will also be tucked in to the bag for each employee. I hope they love these as much as I did in creating them!

The bags and straws came from Etsy (Shop Cherry Sprinkles); the tags on the bag are Reverse Confetti and the hearts are Lawn Fawn and Papertreyink; a few of the bags have doilies, just a hodge podge of fun!! I stamped some of the hearts with various stamps (I will link below); thinking employees can take their treats out and use the sacks for another gift or even re-gift what they received; I wouldn't mind.

Thanks for joining our Valentine's Day Blog Hop; hope you enjoy all the inspiration! And don't forget to leave me a note (as mentioned above) for your chance to win...pretty confident there will be MORE than one gift. ;)


Stamps: RAH Grid Background, Cover Up Grid Stamp, MFT Watercolor Stripes

    Unfortunately the link to my blog is wrong (my fault). Can you please update a Fine How do you do to: https://afinehowdoyoudo.wordpress.com/2019/02/14/valentine-hearts/ Sorry!!

  3. Wow - those are so cute! 🤩 Thanks for joining in the hop! 💘

  4. These treat bags are so cute!!! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Love your pretty gift bags! Very thoughtful gifts for your employees!
    We are not big on gifts for Valentine's Day... usually just a nice dinner out and I might make a special dessert and a handmade card!

  6. What a lovely gift idea. I like this... We don't really do Valentine's in a big way over here in the UK, or at least not in my experience, lol. Maybe that says more about me than it does about the UK? I think the best Valentine's gift I ever received was a single red rose I really was NOT expecting - it meant more to me than anything else could or would.

  7. The best gift I ever received for Valentines Day was a handmade card from my son.

  8. Your little gift packages are so cute! Really lovely. Valentine's is not celebrated so much here in Finland (they do "Friend's day" instead) so I've not really given/received much in the way of gifts. I guess I'll say that my best gift was what my husband gave me this time - buying me pizza when I got back late from work on Valentine's day!

  9. What awesome treat bags! I love little treats with a handmade touch like this. Great project!


Thank you so much for visiting and taking time to leave me a note! I read every single one and *heart* hearing from you. Hugs, ~M.
