I’ll tell you a secret. One that I maybe shouldn’t tell while trying to make money with a crafting blog and designs. But I do it anyway: I don’t like Valentine’s Day. At least not the commercial side of it. I don’t like the expectations and the consumerism that go along with this holiday. Phew, now it’s out there.
But I do like LOVE. I think we should celebrate love way more often than once a year. And since I am definitely a romantic deep down (probably more than I want to admit), I created this valentine love message on a picture frame to celebrate love. Love in general or love for someone specific, it depends on the love message you choose.
This love message on a picture frame makes a perfect gift, not only for Valentine’s Day but also for a loved one on any day or a bridal couple (imagine their faces when you hand them this picture frame with their favourite love quote on it). I am actually happy that my inability to go only with one option made me end up with two frames. Because we do have a wedding coming up…
Love is all you need.
