Last-Minute Han Solo Valentines

Arts & Crafts, Bits in Spaaace!, Geek out!

Need a last minute Valentine’s Day card for your Star Wars sweetheart? No problem – Havalah at Sister, What! made three free printable cards, and they’re not too scruffy-looking at all. Here’s the Han Solo one, for instance:

“I’d be solo without you” – LOL! So awesome. The other two designs clearly refer The Mandalorian series (which I haven’t seen yet, waah).

Thank you for sharing, Havalah!

Happy Valentine’s Day, or friends’ day as it’s known in Finland!

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.

It’s time to update my planning calendar for 2020. In fact, I’m running a little late on this, and my collection of notepapers with scribbles is getting out of hand… Thankfully, Julia Groves has updated her lovely watercolor designs.

I just should’ve remembered to click the ink-saving option off when printing. Ohwell. 🙂

Thank you for sharing, Julia!

Online Finds: Pixel-Style Heart Scarf Pattern

Arts & Crafts

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s a crochet pattern by Tonya Bush, filled with hearts (as fits the date): a scarf made entirely with corner to corner stitches.

Nanas Crafty Home Tonya Bush Heart Scarf

Reminds me of the pixel graphics of the computer games in my youth. In a completely warm and nostalgic way, of course! 🙂 I personally find heart shapes a little difficult to make with pixels (or quilting, knitting, crocheting, what have you) but Tonya’s are perfect. Plus, I love the shade of grey she chose.

Visit Nana’s Crafty Home for the pattern (free, with ads) or buy an ad-free version on Ravelry.

This printable Harry Potter Valentine’s Day card project by Nicole at Tikkido is clever – and it’s even possible to make the larger size with an optical fiber wand that lights up.

Free Printable Heart Gift Tags

Arts & Crafts, Bits in Spaaace!, DIY

This year, I’m attempting to organize everything holiday-related well in advance. (The operative word being “attempting.” Eek – it’s six weeks to Christmas!)

I made these minimalist gift tags inspired by my Nordic roots. And I made them specifically to share with you – read on for the link to download yours!

Red Xstitch Heart Gift Tag on Box

Heart is a popular Christmastime ornament in the Nordic countries, and not reserved just for Valentine’s Day. I made the cross stitch heart and interlaced tag outline with a photo editor.

Then I trimmed them into rectangles, but you can either cut along the outline or create whichever shape you prefer.

(Huh. Apparently it’s a thing for me to share Star Wars printables on Valentine’s Day… Now I need to decide whether to go all out with it or do something different.)
