Woodburned Jewelry- Bracelets/Bangles

That's right! I never thought I will be saying this, but making jewelry was kind of fun. I always tried to stay aside from the jewelry business and I was very apprehensive to dab into it. However, just seeing these unfinished bangles made out of wood, I knew I had to try. My main idea was to make something that I would like to wear. And I would absolutely, most definitely, positively, undoubtedly wear ANY one of these.

- My personal favorite ( I'm lying, I like them all!)

Message in a bottle OR bouquet of pencils?

Today I'll talk about two romantic movies that gave me the idea for Valentine's day gifts for my Etsy shop. Both movies are old, but they still hold their romantic charm that a really good movie doesn't lose with time.

The first one is Message in a Bottle.Chances are you have either given someone a message in a bottle or you have received one at one point or another.However, if you haven't seen the movie, you don't know what you're missing.I have thrown my fair share of messages in bottles since I was little. I mean, living close to the sea you often think it improves your chances in having your message found. Well, it doesn't :-)

However, when you grow up you can make sure the right person finds your message. And I can help you out with that:

If you are looking for an original and personalized message for your loved one, look no further. Although I have included this poem in the message, I can place any text on aged paper. It might be a poem you or your loved one like or it might be a love message in your own words.

I figured, it will be a really nice touch if instead a cork cap, I use a sea auger. It is actually snug enough so you don't have to worry of the sand spilling, and it is also strong, so you don't have to worry about breaking it when closing or opening it.

Talking about romantic gestures, if you have not yet given or received a bouquet of pencils, you don't know what you've been missing. Especially, if you haven't seen the movie You've Got Mail

However, you are in luck again, because I have some of those too and you can get yours here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/120894397/bouquet-of-pencils-unique-bouquet?ref=v1_other_2
As soon as I found out that there are pencils made out of twigs I thought this would be a wonderful idea to include in my Valentine's day inventory.

Valentine's day Gift sets

Do you know what is the biggest issue I have with Valentine's day? Time!!! I never ever have enough of that and around Valentine's day, because my semester starts a little before that, is even worse.

So, I have ton of gift sets to show you, I just hope I can find the time to post everything before the actual Valentine's day. However, I have some good news! You know how I always show you things that I make and everyone here or on the Facebook page says they wish they can have them? Well, lucky for you now you can! After each gift set ( in this post and the next ones after) there would be a link where you can purchase these gift sets!
And  because it is soon Valentine's day and I feel in a loving mood, and also because you are simply amazing for reading my blog and I love you for that, you will receive a 10% Off your purchase!
How to get your gift from me? Simply fill in this coupon code at check out :


Now to get back to the gift sets. This year I decided not to make any cards ( compared to last year, when I went a liiiittle overboard with it). So, if you get one of my Valentine's day cards from before, you should feel totally lucky, since there ain't no more this year. 
But, on the other hand I had enough time to concentrate on creating fabulous combinations of handmade gifts that will help you express your feelings to the person you get them for. 

This gift set I call " Key to My Heart". Yes, you know I love giving names to the things I make, but do you know why that is? I apply all my heart and skill in everything I make, all of these things you see on my website, they are a part of me, like my children. And children have names, don't they?
