Happy Valentines Day - Artisan Handmade Gifts!

 

 

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it.  Walk into a store shortly after Christmas and hearts, cupids and other items in pink and red will assail you from every direction.  Flowers, candy and gifts are exchanged between loved ones throughout the United States and in many other countries around the world . . . all in the name of St. Valentine.  Although the exact history of St. Valentine is shrouded in mystery, February has long been celebrated as a month of romance.  Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman traditions. 

 

 

 

Valentine's Day Gifts - Artisan Handmade

 

 

If you would like to participate in this promotional link-up, please leave two of your handmade items that will be a perfect gift for Valentine's Day.  I'll include both items on a Valentine's Day blog that will be finished and posted (hopefully) the end of next week.  The one rule is:  you must promote all the items to at least two social media platforms and also promote the blog.  I'll be promoting from here (tweeting and pinning) AND then tweet again and pin to a new board when the blog is posted.  Will also share the blog to Facebook.  If you tweet, please use the hashtag #Love2022 to make the tweets easy to find for retweeting.  The InLinkz will close Wednesday at 12:00 noon Mountain Time.

 

I look forward to seeing what you share!  Let's get some sales!

Hearts for an Artisan Valentines Day - Three for Thursday - January 28, 2021

 

 

Valentine’s Day is almost here, just a bit over 2 weeks away.  If you haven’t already done so, now is the time you need to be deciding on an artisan gift for your loved one(s) and ordering it!  Since the heart shape has been recognized the world over as a symbol of romantic love and affection for centuries, I decided this week’s “Three for Thursday'' will include artisan designed items with hearts, three items from each of the three artists.  The artists featured are:  Giacomo of JagoDesign2; Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions; and, me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  I hope you enjoy each of these heart-y picks.  If something catches your eye, be sure to visit the artist's shop and browse for even more eye candy . . . and make that purchase for a meaningful Valentine’s gift!

Pretty Pinks for Valentines Day - Three for Thursday - January 14, 2021

 

 

Valentine’s Day will soon be here, just a month from now, with the color pink, along with red, seen everywhere in stores.  Pink is considered the color of universal love of oneself and of others and represents friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and femininity.  There’s no wonder that it’s a color that is closely associated with the romance of Valentine’s Day!  In this week’s “Three for Thursday,” titled "Pretty Pinks for Valentine's Day," three mainly pink items from three handmade artists are featured.  The artists are:  Linda of VictorianStyleTreasuresCharlotte of Covergirlbeads; and me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.   I hope you enjoy these pink beauties, each a perfect gif for your Valentine's sweetie.

Follow Your Heart - Handmade Valentines Day Gifts

 

Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence. - Vincent van Gogh

 

 

By now, everyone is aware that Valentine’s Day (or St. Valentine’s Day) is rapidly approaching; it will be here in less than a month, on February 14th.  Many stores have been decked out in hearts, cards, red roses, candy and cupids since the day after Christmas so it’s a day that’s hard to miss.  

 

Since the most common Valentine's Day symbol is the heart, the new "Follow Your HeartThree for Thursday blog is dedicated hearts.  Three beautifully unique heart items are shared from three handmade artist friends. Some of the items are more traditional and some are not - but all will make a perfect Valentine’s Gift for your loved one.  The artists featured are: Julie from Blue Morning Expressons; Heather from BluKatDesign; and, me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs. If something catches your eye, click on the photo or the description and you’ll be taken to the item in the shop.  I hope you enjoy each and every heart.
