Happy Waitangi Day! If you’re not from New Zealand, you probably have no idea what this is.
Every year on 6 February, New Zealand marks the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 when representatives of the British Crown and over 500 Māori chiefs signed what is often considered to be New Zealand’s founding document.
There are mixed feelings in NZ about the Treaty but I won’t go into that here.
It’s a public holiday and this year it falls on Saturday so we get Monday as a holiday.
It kind of marks the end of summer for us as well because we have lots of public holidays in January and after Waitangi Day, there’s a dry spot until Easter.
If you’re in NZ, what do you have planned for the holiday weekend?
Wow! What a week it’s been.
The big thing for me this week was that I shared my kitchen renovation with a video. It's been a long time coming and I was so happy to share it with you all.
I’ll be sharing more photos of my kitchen in the next few weeks.
I showed you how to make these Heart Tassel Earrings.
This was my first (and my be my only for this year) Valentine's Day project. I love tassels and I love purple, so these earrings just hit the mark for me. They would be the perfect gift for someone for Valentine’s Day.
On that note, I also posted some gift ideas – I know that Valentine’s Day is most often seen as a day to celebrate your significant other but why not use it as a way to show those you care about that you’re thinking of them.
It’s all about Valentine’s Day today. There’s so much that I couldn’t show you pictures of them all, so I’ve left a list of links below. Here’s some I found that I thought were particularly worth showing you all.
I loved this idea – Marie made these little hearts with her son. They are so cute.
Lynne made this cute garland from wool and cardboard!
Emily made this cute heart using a coat hanger and buttons!
Liberty made this Love Sheet Music Wreath.
And what about this beautiful wreath than Jennifer made from grapevine, faux flowers and some greenery.
Here’s a list of others I thought were also worth checking out.
I hope this post gave you inspiration
