Happy Valentine’s Day to Our Amazingly Creative Readers!

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! As cheesy and Hallmark-ish as this holiday may be, we think it’s a great time to reflect on all of the people who matter most in life. For us, it’s our family, friends, and of course, those who have helped make Brit + Co. all it is today — you!

Over the past year, we have been blessed to hear from so many of you guys. Whether you shot us a tweet, Facebook message, email, or comment, it’s been incredible to know that we have so many supportive (and seriously creative) Brit + Co. fans all around the world. Personally, I can’t tell you how much grinning goes down every time I see a sweet comment, app review, or email come my way. But the best things I love to see are photos of YOUR creations, whether they are Brit + Co. re-makes or something you’ve thought up entirely on your own. Nothing fills me up more than seeing people having fun being creative.

As such, we wanted to publish a special post today reflecting on some of the amazing things you guys have made and shared with us. The following is a smattering of some of our favorite things you’ve sent in.

How great does this cross-stitch Valentine by @BritMcGee look? And bonus points for recreating our holiday pennant banner and using it as your Twitter background! :)

First up, delicious food!

From Cointreau Cupcakes to Coco-Nutty Energy Bites and Sushi Cupcakes, you are definitely giving us a run for the money in the food department. (photos from @YasemineDenari@yanklats, Shirley via email)

And let’s not forget the awesomeness of all of your turkey pops from Thanksgiving!

Love old blue eyes in the mix!

And since the holidays are all about food, you did an awesome job creating your own takes on Egg Nog Pudding Shots  Salted Caramel Cheesecake, and the devilishly delicious Chai Hot Toddy.  (photos from @Origin1973@Melster86, and Mary via email)

Of course, what would a fall of creativity be without pumpkin? Love this Pumpkintini and Fondue.

Now, onto style. Here we’ve got gorgeous recreations of our DIY Makeup PaletteSafety Pin ringScarf Vest  and Hex Nut earrings. (photos from Enjoyer of GraceMari via Facebook, an email submission, and @sarahjo808)

Ok, we have to head back to the holidays for a quick minute. How sweet is this Washi Tree? (photo from Paper Pleased)

And these holiday photos inspired by our DIY Photo Booth + Creative Holiday photos posts – so cute! (photos from Morgan and Ethan via email)

But what about Brit Kits? Turns out you’ve been busily crafting up Hex NutsCross Stitch Cards, and even making a video of unwrapping the box! So cool. (photos via @sh3lly@naya1a and @cecelia, video via Facebook.)





All in all, we feel truly humbled by all of your creativity. It makes every day of crafting, cooking, and coding totally worth it.

Have you recreated any of the projects you’ve seen on Brit + Co? Be sure to send photos our way via Facebook, Twitter, or email – we love to hear from you!
