Decorating for Valentine’s Day (Free Printable!)

4 Feb

I love decorating for the holidays. I’m a person who welcomes change, so it’s great when I have an excuse to switch up my everyday decor. I’m always a bit sad when the last of the Christmas decorations are put away, making our home look a bit bare. So decorating for Valentine’s Day is something I look forward to.

I think a person is allowed to go overboard with Christmas decorations, but I think for minor holidays like Valentine’s Day or the Fourth of July, a tasteful nod of celebration is appropriate. This reasoning is why I only opted for a cute framed graphic, a heart banner and a pink ribbon. But if Valentine’s Day is your favorite, by all means, go hog wild! 😉

The heart banner was made from leftover pages from a coffee table book I used in a previous project (see here). The framed xoxo graphic was something I created using my new found pattern making skills in Adobe Illustrator. I recently finished a class through Nicole’s Classes.  If you are interested in design, I highly recommend their classes!

The xoxo graphic is a free printable for download below. It fits a 5 x 7 in. frame in case you want to swap out a family photo for the cute print.

Do you have any fun plans for Valentine’s Day? Have you done any love-inspired crafts in celebration of the holiday?



Free Printable: God Save the Queen

8 Jun

As you may know, I have an affinity for British culture. And no, it’s not just because I’m married to a Brit (although that did fuel the fire!). The Queen has been inspiring home decor and pop culture for decades. You can’t open a British decor magazine without at least one reference to her Majesty in a home tour. And that fascination certainly has begun to influence decor in the States too.

You can download the print by clicking on the button below. Please feel free to print it, frame it and hang it on your wall!
