Is there seriously a better way to say "I love you" than with cupcakes? How about chocolate frosted and colored sprinkled cupcakes? These charming silver plated earrings spell out the word "LOVE" with adorable cupcakes replacing the O's. So cute, you may even want to consider them as a gift to yourself. ;)

Cotton embroidery floss is the queen material for creating unique friendship bracelets, and I love Carrie's! Her awesome 100% mouline cotton LOVE bracelets feature three alternating colors. So light weight and as comfortable to wear. Bracelets are made-to-order and available in hundreds of color options for you to choose from.

Soft, sweet, and special for the one you love, who wouldn't want to receive such a lovely card this Valentine's Day! Voila's fabulous handmade card was created with Melissa Frances patterned paper, cardstock, crepe tissue, buttons, twine, ribbon, vintage trim, stamps, ink, chipboard key, and cherry crystals. What a perfect choice! :)

Our next piece is the definition of sweet and simple. Any girl would love these adorable heart shaped button bobby pins. Perfect for a fun date out with your guy.

How charming! The "Love" key is the focal point of Tashina's lovely chain necklace, along with three brass and silver tokens which say "Lifetime," "Forevermore," and "Genuine." Other stylish adornments include cranberry teardrop freshwater pearls, two brass feathers, light pink, light brown topaz, and clear Swarovski crystals, and a brass metal bird. Very unique and a must-have!

As funny as it may sound, coasters can make a great addition to your dorm room or apartment. I love Andréa's use of patterns to create such a unique decoration. Cute little cupids, adorable roses, fun hearts, and little doves make these deep red coasters perfect for Valentine's Day.

Add a pop of color to your outfit! Five red acrylic flowers with black beads sit upon a 18" gunmetal chain necklace. Who is that classy lady? She could be you!

Impress your love interest and show your nerdy side with Charlene's unique chemistry cards. This card features the molecular structure of glucose (aka sugar) along with the words "You're Sweet" in bold pink letters. Inside you'll see a textbook definition (complete with pronunciation in the International Phonetic Alphabet) of glucose as well as blank space to leave your own personal message. Intelligent girls rock! :D
Well, that about wraps it up! From cupcakes to sugar molecules, Valentine's Day is one sweet holiday for those in love. I appreciate these gifted young Etsy artists, and if you do too, stop by their shops and drop them a sweet compliment ... or better yet, purchase some of their innovative designs. Maybe next Valentine's Day you too will be showcasing your artistic talent on Etsy ... or in Sweet Designs Magazine!
