Jess’s Picks

My picks are all Valentine’s Day related today and I have some fun gifts going up in the Hope Chest, too. What can I say? I’m a Valentine’s Day junkie. And all of the people that hate it have made that so trite that I feel like I’m carving out original ground when I advocate for Valentine’s Day.

  • I’ve been on a real hot cocoa kick lately, even though this winter hasn’t been this cold. A Valentine’s Day Sugar Giftable from Somewhere Splendid sounds perfect for my growing list of things I want to try mixed into hot cocoa. Better yet? Both the sugar and the gift is a DIY!


Mary’s Picks

  • I saw A Child’s Own Studio this morning on Whatever. I am pretty much in awe over this woman’s ingenuity and art. She takes drawings from children and then fashions them into dolls/animals. It’s really amazing.
  • I love vintage typography and because of that I could look at Letterheady all day. Seriously, I can browse through their archives for hours. My favorite is Groucho Marx’s. It’s awesome.
