Linking up with Jamie again for...

This Wednesday, I'm loving that in ONE WEEK I'll be leaving for the beach. Well, actually, in one week (exactly) I'll be headed to the dentist. one week and a few hours, I'll be leaving for the beach! I can't wait to spend a few days relaxing with friends and pretending I'm still in college by taking a Spring Break.

I'm loving this new book I've started.

Has anyone read The Pact? I literally just started, and I am only a few pages in...but it's one of those that gets you hooked from the start, and I like that in a book. Have you started any good books lately? I'm always looking for my next read.

I'm loving that my current phone contract ends Friday. I'm thinking I am going to get the iPhone 5. Reviews??

I'm loving that I've got an estate sale and lunch date with my dad today. I absolutely love going to estate sales/yard sales because you never know what you might find. I'm always on the look out for mason jars and Pinterest Party craft ideas. One of the last ones I went to, I found this little guy...

I'm loving the giveaway I posted yesterday...

You can win a Hand Made and Lovely monogram necklace as well as the chance to buy more for 50% off! You should go enter!

As always, I'm loving my lovely followers...Happy Hump Day!

I can't even remember the last time I linked up with Jamie for WILW...

This Wednesday:

I'm loving the weather! So far I've been able to walk 4 miles each day, and it's been great! It's February, and I get to walk outside in a t-shirt.

I'm loving this fun Pinterest Party idea I found:

Magnetic Chalkboard
I might have to have this be my April Pinterest Party Craft! I'll, of course, add my own flair and a little twist to it.

I'm loving this new style of earring I'm making:

I've never made dangle earrings with the post stud earring backs before, but I love the result. If these prove to be popular, I will definitely be making more in the future. I currently have white, navy, black, red, and yellow available in both styles. (I might have to keep a pair of the navy with filigree bottom for myself.) Keep up with all of my latest jewelry on the Hand Made and Lovely facebook page.

Happy Hump Day!

Pinterestin' Friday

So, how long has it been since I've shared my favorite Pins of the week with a little thing I like to call "Pinterestin' Friday"??

I love these funny Valentine cards.

I may have to do this heart wreath for next February's Pinterest Party.

To see more of my pins, follow my boards on Pinterest!

Have a great weekend! Stay lovely, my friends.

February Pinterest Party

I'd like to share my latest Pinterest Party craft. This month, I had two parties at two different art galleries.

We made this cute Valentine Garland. I taught everyone how to make folded paper pin wheels, and each person design their own 8' garland.

Even though these have a Valentine theme, I think they would be great to have hung year round with family photos or children's art displayed. Clothespins would work perfectly!

I'm so excited for next month's Pinterest Parties!
