Valentines Now Available at Sugar Bear

My shop was looking a little sad and empty so I had a creative marathon and came up with some Valentine's treats and some new jewelry pieces. I also managed to get all of my swap stuff created, packed, and shipped. I'm never usually this far ahead!

This little guy is very lovesick. He is looking for his soul mate and is ready to give his heart!


I love Valentine's Day. It is fun to celebrate love and to be able to decorate with hearts and candy!

I've been wanting to use this heart in a piece for a while now. I knew it would make the perfect Valentine's necklace!

I love big vintage rhinestone brooches. The possibilities for them are truly endless.

Another vintage brooch turned into a necklace.

This is an adorable bracelet that came to me through an estate cleaning. In the spirit of not hoarding the good stuff, I've decided to part with it.

It feels like Valentine's Day is here but I just looked at the calendar and realized it is still several weeks away! I'm coming up with some new ideas for gifts for Jeff and for family. I like to give all the parents and my sister a little something special as well as of course doing something special for Jeff. I'd share some of the gifts I've already gotten but too many family members read this blog! What are you planning for Valentine's Day?

xo,

You have shipped for your Valentine swaps already?? *guilty*. I'm glad my husband is out of town tonight--I can stay up really late, watch a movie and get my swapping done too.
You've lit a creative fire under my bottom!!
The shop looks great!

Your little box is adorable! I love the crepe paper trim. I tried to make one at Thanksgiving with an empty ribbon spool but it just didn't work. I think I needed to use an actual box. Your jewelry is gorgeous, too!! Love the rhinestone brooch necklace.
I'm decorating a little tin mailbox for my mom, as well as a "SPRING" banner/pennant thingie, that are so popular right now. I thought of getting her some personalized M&Ms to stuff in the mailbox, but haven't decided yet. :)

Your lovesick guy is sweet! He's looking up as if to say, "Send HER in!" Love that bracelet! And I agree with you regarding family members...with them reading our blogs we can't show our cards much! Wonder what you have planned? We'll see...on Feb. 15th!
