As I mentioned last Thursday, I’ve hopped on the Valentine’s bandwagon (which, by the way, is decorated with Cupid cartoons, chocolates, and doilies… But most of all doilies).  Last Thursday, I brought you a heart-shaped DIY printable for Valentine’s cards, wall art, et al.  In this week’s Pinterest round-up, I’ve brought you all kinds of heart shaped loveliness!  I know, I know, I’m a victim of trends… But this holiday comes but once a year, y’all!

So… bear with me and my inclinations to peer pressure and check out my finds!  As always, click on the pic to take you to the original source website (none of these are my own creation — all curated from Pinterest and Google image searches).

Making a heart shaped cake without a specialty pan:  bake a square cake and a round one and cut the round cake in half!

I square cake + 1 circular cake cut in half = heart shaped cake!


Hand warmers -- fill with rice and sew around the edges (I've done this before with a clean tube song -- makes a great heating pad, especially for your neck)

    I am surprised but I actually found some stuff here that I love! the zipper heart is brilliant, and I am all about wax paper in the past few days so the Martha crayon and wax paper hearts was just what I needed to see!

      I’m totally with you — I’m not really a heart kind of girl, but I love some of the less conventional ideas :)

Leave a Comment

I love comments! They make me feel warm and fuzzy — like Diet Coke and The Office reruns! However, your comments may take a while to appear as I moderate each. and. every. one. Lame, I know. But this way I’m able to keep out all of the angry-eyebrow comments full of less-than-sunshine words… as well as spam (ain’t nobody got time for that). Thanks for your comments (as well as your patience)! #ithinkyouareawesome #unlessyouarespam
