Valentine’s Day Giveaway~ Happy Hearts

Over the past few weeks I have been sharing several Valentine themed craft tutorials. They have included:

Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

I “PINE” For You Candy Containers

Be My Valentine Chocolate Bars

I also showcased the new Valentine corsages I added to my Etsy shop.

With each little creation that I made I set a few aside in a box. I also collected and gathered fun little treasures to add to the box. They include a vintage hanky and paper doilies, a groovy match box that has been redecorated and filled with tiny treasures, heart shaped post its and sweet hand made tags so you can share the love.  Here is the Valentine Happy Hearts Giveaway.

 Everyone is eligible for this giveaway. However, if the winner does happen to be an Adorable Person (aka “follower”) they will receive some extra sweet secret surprises added to the box.

Please leave just one comment about what you love.  

If you want to blog about the giveaway, you may leave a second comment for an additional entry.

I will select a winner on Wednesday the 9th so that the package can be mailed out to the winner in time to celebrate.

UPDATE: The Random Number Generator has selected Debra from Common Ground. Congratulations and have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy hearts!

What an excellent idea alter candy boxes. I always find them lovely, but then throw them away because I don't know what else to use them for. Thank you for the inspiration!

April said...

oh, Laura. i am wondering how i missed some of your beautiful posts? many of these items i have NOT seen!
they are truly beautiful--you are SO creative!
i will be going back to seek them out.
meanwhile, i LOVE that my hubby is home today because of the weather, and that our power is ON despite the iciness outside.

You know, of course, that I'm an adorable person, Laura, AND I'm an adorable follower. ;-) So, is that one or two points??? ;-)

Okay, I am addicted to chocolate, and I guarantee promise and assure you that those would not last the hour here.

What do I love most in the world??? The Lord. No competition.

What sweet treats! You are so talented! I have to say - my two favorites are the match box with handmade tags - my granddaughters would be thrilled to get those in the mail from their long distance grandmother, along with those cute vintage hanky and paper doilies. All would be a sweet delight! Thank you for this fun Valentine blog giveaway!

What a wonderful giveaway! Since I'm always pining for something, I love the "I pine for you."
Happy PS!

Angela said...

I love the "I Pine for You" craft. It is so creative! I read through the instructions, and I would love to try that with my nephew.

Lady Dorothy said...

Thanks for coming by! Actually, I had already read about your LOVE-ly giveway, but thought I'd pass this time around. Chocolate's not my friend right now. :-( So, if my number comes up, please pass it on. (It's hard to celebrate Valentine's Day without chocolate; I don't know what I'm gonna do! Well, there's always next year!) Happy Valentine's Day, my lovely friend!

Cat & Cricket said...
