I’m not sure if it a a good thing or not, but as a food & lifestyle blogger I start thinking about holidays about 2 months before they happen. Since September/Back to School it has been a wild ride with Halloween, then Thanksgiving onto Christmas, New Years and now Valentine’s Day! Let’s not forget about all of the travel, work, kids, school and family activities.

Way before a holiday approaches my mind spins in all kinds of creative ways. I think about food, recipes, crafts & photography. All. The. Time.

I love sharing ideas that go way beyond recipes. My plan is to design more & give you DIY printables and crafts a bit more often.

I love all holidays, even simple “normal” days.

I also love to design little cherubs decked out in plaid.

Do you like chocolate truffles? I sure hope you do ’cause I love them. I have a great new truffle recipe I will be sharing soon. So you can make the ones you see in the photos.

That is assuming you want to….

In shades of pinks, blues, reds and greens these designs are versatile, sophisticated yet playful to suit many projects.

I have a thing for sparkle. I hope you are OK with that. You don’t have to use the foamy stickers if you don’t want to. They were all over my kitchen table from my daughters craft projects.

Happy Valentines Day from

They are also hiding out in my purse. You can read more about that over at  the new blog That’s What We Said. It is a great place to share giggles with the creators Kristan Confessions of a Cookbook Queen & Shelly Cookies and Cup  Over there is a sneak peek at what I keep inside my purse.

For the mason jars I printed the flags and cherubs on card stock at about 80% of the full size. For the burlap wrapped flowers they were printed at 100%.

You can print these little flag tags and angels for yourself. Even better…for FREE. Best news you have heard all day. I know…

Just remember ~ all you need is….

Cute printables.

Now if only I had a printer :)

I print NOTHING anymore! haha!


2 Rosa January 25, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Oh, so cute! I love them. A pity I don’t have a color printer…




3 Liren January 26, 2012 at 12:18 am

So sweet and adorable! These will definitely come in handy :) Thank you!


4 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Hi Liren, thanks! I hope you can use them for your projects too :)


5 Caroline @ chocolate & carrots January 26, 2012 at 3:23 am

I love these Marla! Homemade Valentine’s are the best! 😀


6 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Thanks Caroline. Homemade Valentine’s are fun! My kids have filled the kitchen table with their own. We are having so much fun with this!


7 Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit January 26, 2012 at 4:45 am

Wow Marla, these printables are amazing! I would love to learn how to make them, you must have so much patience. Photoshop drives me nuts after just a couple of minutes… and I went to school for it!


8 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Leanne, I am actually starting to strike up a better relationship with Photoshop. I used to really dislike it & now I am kinda obsessed with it. There is so much I do not know though….will take years of practice! I should take some classes in it come to think of it. Just need to find the time 😉


9 Joanne January 26, 2012 at 5:01 am

See, I may start THINKING about holidays ahead of time…but you actually act on them. These are so super pretty!


10 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Joanne, I try girl. Sometimes I miss. Like the SuperBowl. I will miss. Is that a holiday though?


11 bridget {bake at 350} January 26, 2012 at 6:25 am

Oh, Marla! Those are darling!!!


12 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Thanks Bridget…now if only I had your talents I could make little plaid cherub cookies. I will leave that one up to you 😉 I’ll stick with Illustrator, Photoshop and a camera!


13 Britt @ The Magnolia Pair January 26, 2012 at 7:07 am

No way.. This is way too sweet of you! Thanks for the printables! I am so excited now to decorate some mason jars!

Thank you !!!

The Magnolia Pair



14 Marla January 26, 2012 at 8:39 am

Hi Britt! So glad you stopped by and like the printables. Can’t wait to hear about your projects….and maybe take a peek?


15 Bev Weidner January 26, 2012 at 7:47 am

You’ve done it again, lady face!


16 Marla January 26, 2012 at 8:38 am

Thanks miss Bev :) Glad you like ’em.


17 Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers January 26, 2012 at 10:03 am

Oh these are just adorable! I love homemade gift tags and decorations and adding them to homemade food gifts, makes it look all the more perfect. I think it really shows you care.


18 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Jennifer, it really does. The extra special homemade cards, tags, buttons, badges, ribbons, bows….etc. Sweet little touches say a whole lot!


19 Allison [Girl's Guide to Social Media] January 26, 2012 at 10:11 am

These are darling!! Nothing wrong with being prepared and thinking ahead of time. I am the same way, two months in advance I am thinking of how to approach holidays in a unique and thoughtful way.


20 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:34 pm

“A unique and thoughtful way” love that. My new motto. Thanks Allison!


21 Allison [Girl's Guide to Social Media] January 26, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Thank you, Marla! :)


22 Angie January 26, 2012 at 10:27 am

Those are adorable! Thank you! I would love to print them and paste them on card stock to use as valentines day cards. On the back “designed by Marla”
Your creativity and talent is amazing!


23 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Thanks Angie, I am so glad you enjoy them. There is oh so much you can do with things like this :)


24 Maria January 26, 2012 at 10:27 am

I’m speechless at the lovely~ness!
The burlap with the PINK & blue and red is just adorable!

Can’t believe I missed what’s in YOUR BAG!!!

I’m seriously PINNING every picture in this post!

26 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Teresa, your visits always brighten my day. Thanks so much for all of your great energy and sweetness! I am so happy that you went Pin Crazy on this post. I hope that lots of people enjoy my art & designs and can use them for their own projects. I thought that the natural/rustic burlap went well with the candy colors. Nice contrast. I love contrast!!
Hope you had fun with that BAG post. I had gobs of fun with that one! I was actually laughing as I wrote it.
I knew you would spot those itty bitty pom poms. Now I am obsessed like you!


27 Jen at The Three Little Piglets January 26, 2012 at 11:12 am

Those are so cute! Sometimes I wonder where on earth you find time to do all of this! Don’t you ever sleep?


28 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Jen, I do sleep. Actually really well because I make myself so tired!! Glad you like the crafts :)


29 HeatherChristo January 26, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Very Cute Marla! You are so creative!


30 Nancy@acommunaltable January 26, 2012 at 12:39 pm

These are just adorable! My question is “girl, where DO you find the time”?
Total inspiration!


31 Marla January 26, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Nancy, not sure where I find the time. But I do! The problem for me is relaxing & down time. I am not wired to do that!


32 TidyMom January 26, 2012 at 4:45 pm

so adorable Marla!


33 Jeanette January 26, 2012 at 5:18 pm

You are such a creative talent Marla – I wouldn’t be able to find any Valentine gift tags/cards as beautiful as these 😉


34 Cara January 26, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I love that you’ll be doing more of these crafty things for us. Love your style!


35 Lora @cakeduchess January 26, 2012 at 6:42 pm
