Mary-Ellen’s Picks

It’s crazy to think that with a click and a flick of the calendar we’ve already dipped our creative toe into February. February has always been one of my favourite months – we’ve sprung out of the January blues and into a month full of energy, fire and passion. It also marks that worldwide distinctive occasion: Valentine’s Day. But why is it so clichéd? Well it doesn’t have to be…. I’ve hopped over from my blog HOP Interiors to team up with Etsy to assist you with finding that (non-clichéd) gift that’s perfect for her, him or them.

I was spoilt for choice when selecting these gifts and they are sure to put a smile on her face.

1. Geometric iPhone 5 case by TonCase, 2. Vintage style Camera bag by Siolife, 3. Rustic Kraft Anniversary Card by Paperlaced, 4. Nameplate bracelet by shopLUCA.

So many of us are creative, designing, blogging, writing, styling and profiling…

1. Typographic Quote by InkyCreative, 2. Personalised Wedding Stamp by Papersushi, 3. Valentines Day Card by ordinaryartists 4. Felt Macbook Sleeve by Etoidesign.

First there was one, then two then the little ones came along. Valentines day is a nice reminder of how you have grown together. Many of you or your partners may be expecting the patter of tiny feet.
