I came across these heart shaped grapevine wreaths – so cute! I usually use grapevine wreaths in my felt workshops, so I wanted to see if I could decorate a wreath with non-felt supplies. I chose paper! For this project you will need: Heart shaped grapevine wreaths Scrapbook paper with fun designs that you can cut out Paper scissors Hot glue String I went through my scrapbook paper stash to see if I had any designs I could use. I decided on cutting out flowers. Cut as many designs as you want to fill the wreath and use hot glue to adhere. Careful! You can really feel the heat of the glue through the paper. I filled most of the wreath with paper flowers, and overlapped flowers in some areas. Then added a string for hanging. A super simple craft with a big impact! How cute would these be on each door of your home! What have you been crafting for Valentine’s? Share below.

More weaving with shapes! Vilasinee of The Loome also came out with a lip weaving tool. She’s so sweet; she included one in my order when I bought the rainbow tool. I thought these would be perfect for love day gifting. For this weaving project you will need: the Loome lip tool, yarn (at least two colors), non-stretchy cord, scissors, and a craft needle. The full weaving tutorial can be found on The Loome. Protips: Use two colors – one for the lips and one for the lipline. And make sure to pull the warp tight to get the Cupid’s bow on top. I finished my weavings by adding a hanging string with hot glue and sewing on a pomtass. I went a lil crazy with the color combos, but I’m into it! All together now! Hope your Valentine’s crafting is off to a colorful start!

Nom nom nom. Berkeley Restaurant Week! I tend to always miss it, but this year my friend invited me to a special kick-off event, and I actually made dinner date plans with my girlfriends to try a new restaurant in town. All the noms below. BRW Kick-off The special kick-off event was held at the Double Tree in Berkeley. Visit Berkeley hosted and invited influencers from the area. I met a travel writer, restaurant and art gallery owners, and overall nice people! There were bites from the Boathouse and wine from local wineries. I was seen without a glass of wine and someone brought me one! First class! If you get to visit the Boathouse I highly recommend the Brussels sprouts and the chocolate ginger crème brûlée. To top off the evening, Trumer Pils etched custom pint glasses! I got Crafterateur printed on mine. Shout out to my friend Jerico for inviting me to the kick-off! It was so fun!
