Getting ready for Valentines

posted in: Articles, Valentines | 0

It’s only just New Year I hear you say! Yes it is but that means there is only just over a month until Valentines comes screaming around the corner so it’s best to be prepared isn’t it…

Stores hike up prices like craaaazzzzy for Valentines so why not get ready nice and early and create something yourself. They do say that it is the thought that counts and what could be better than going that extra mile and physically creating your gift or card.

  • Do you have any Valentines themed makes?
