Feb07 Valentine’s Sussies 2013

Oh my dear, Valentine’s Day is in 7 days! I’m a super fan of the holiday. Well, really, I’m a fan of any reason to throw a little sparkle on something and celebrate. One of my favorite things about holidays is the opportunity to hand make a little something to give away to the people I love and appreciate. One of my dearest friends calls these little somethings “sussies.” Apparently it’s a southern thing, and I think its adorable. So we’re going with it!

Here’s a roundup of some great DIY projects for making sussies for your friends, family, co-workers, or maybe even random neighbors and the mail man. It’s a perfect excuse to spread a little love!
