What have you been up to this week? Did you do anything nice for Valentine's or is that not your cup of tea?
After featuring the geometric card by the Craft Lumberjacks at last week's Handmade Monday I used their idea as the basis for the card I made my hubbie.
I also did a little doodling/letter art too which I shared on Instagram, a little extract of one of my favourite love poems called Atlas by U A Fanthorpe.
Enough about me! Here are the features from last week's Handmade Monday.
These paper rose made from old maps are so lovely. There is a great tutorial so you can make your own, for yourself or to give away, from Claire at Pillar Box Blue.
I am SO in love with these amazing trousers from Agy at Green Issues by Agy. She's been making them for months and I've been watching along on Instagram. It was so lovely to see her wearing the finished product.
They were inspired by the Japansese practice of Kintsugi which I confess I'd never heard of. It's mending things, usually with gold, with the idea that cracks or repairs make them more beautiful and valuable not less.

The rules for Handmade Monday are simple:
- Did you make it? Yes - hooray, we'd love to see it!
- Add the link to a specific blog post, not your main site URL.
- Link up to 3 posts each week.
- Mingle - visit some of the other links - comment - share - let's support one another and grow our craft community.
