Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope all of you are feeling the love today whether it’s from a significant other, some close friends, or showing yourself a little self-love (maybe a facial or a cupcake from that little shop around the corner are a few suggestions). A little cup of warmth and love I give myself in the morning is coffee. It’s no surprise for anyone that’s been here for a while that I am a coffee enthusiast – I will drink everything from a cup of joe boiled over a campfire in a percolator to the grande iced caramel macchiato at Starbucks. For me, the taste of coffee reminds me of waking up as a kid and smelling the fresh pot my dad had made for himself. It reminds me of going to a late football games in college and drinking so much coffee beforehand to make sure I stayed up that I’m pretty sure it was an all nighter from the caffeine (and game) buzz. Coffee is a comfort to me in a very similar way that crafting comforts me. It gives me a chance to feel relief from any current stresses and for a few minutes be in my own little Zen place.
One of my favorite projects to do of all times is to make wreaths. I love them because no matter what, I feel like every wreath is different even by a little giving them each a unique character. For Valentines this year I wanted to couple coffee with love in a fun and whimsical wreath. I’m excited to show off the end results below. Let me know how you like your coffee in the comments below!
