gift guide: the glam girl

We all have that friend who seems to sparkle from head to toe.  She loves all shiny things – diamonds, sequins, glitter, and gold.  Her makeup is always on point.  She’s so stylish and put together – you just wish you had access to that closet for a night or two.  Like Beyonce, you’re pretty sure she just woke up like that.

Here are some great gift ideas for that glamorous girlie girl:

simple Valentine’s Day crafts from the heart

I bet if you asked people to name the first gift idea that popped into their head for Valentine’s Day, most would say:  jewelry, flowers, Hallmark, or chocolate.   There’s such an industry built around the 14th of February I think sometimes we lose focus on what the whole point of the day really is.  What better way to show someone you care than with a thoughtful craft or keepsake?  Here’s 4 DIY Valentine’s Day craft ideas I found on the web that caught my eye.  You can find nearly all of the materials to make them at home or at the store up the street!

I love these homemade cards featured in this month’s Real Simple mag.  Such a great idea to take something you don’t use anymore like a deck of cards, an old match book, or a puzzle and create these unique valentines!

XOXO Letters

xoxo letters

Go to Hobby Lobby and grip up these cardboard letters and your favorite color of spray paint to create this valentine that can be displayed year round. (Note: metallic paint colors always seem to make these pop – but I’m sure you could use any color!)

Paint Strip Valentines

The perfect simple valentine.  Paint strips are free and I’m sure ya’ll have a marker lying around.  This is great for the coworker, classmate, or extended family member.  You can always write a message on the back too if you so desire.

Heart Art

Buy a small canvas (art stores have these on sale all the time!), give it a quick paint job, and then glue small items together in the shape of a heart.  Love this one made out of buttons shown above, but you could use anything around the house, like thumbtacks, coins, cut up pieces of fabric…be creative – the sky is the limit!
