Homemade Valentine’s Day Gifts

I visited NBC’s studios in Philadelphia for a fun segment to demo some easy homemade Valentine’s Day gifts — frugal and festive!!

In case you missed the show, here’s the clip!

Coming up this week… a super-fun giveaway, and lots more frugal crafty goodness!! Yay!


  1. You did such a great job on the show. That must be so much fun for you!

  2. Valerie – you did such a wonderful job. I go on our morning news tomorrow and I feel a bit overwhelmed! You made it look so easy – I worry that I might be over planning a bit for a 3 minute segment! I was planning to do contact paper too but a little different – Well done! So fun to see you live:)

    • Awww… thank you so much, Deborah! I’m sure you’ll do really well — how exciting! If you ever want to chat about segment ideas, feel free to contact me anytime! 🙂 Best of luck to you!!!

  3. Great ideas and great show! It would be nice to see the girls on the show too one of these days. They are so adorable.

    • Thanks so much, min! Emily has been on with me a few times, but Clara is a little too young yet. Although I would LOVE to bring her!!! Emily is up for any excuse to be on tv, and if we’re not careful, she may take over their whole show! LOL

  4. Okay, Princess would totally love that cookie dough idea, much easier than what I’m working on right now (not that this project is hard).

  5. Great job, as always! Thanks for sharing your great ideas! My girls LOVE their cookie making set. 🙂

  6. I would love to watch the video Valerie however it seems that non-US computers can’t load any of the videos. P.S. The good news is that we have been FFFB inspired to make little chicks by painting cotton balls yellow, using matchboxes as nests with little black cardboard beaks and texta dots for eyes. So cute – thanks for pushing my dormant creativity buttons 🙂

    • Boo hoo!! It’s too bad it’s for US viewers only… 🙁

      But I love love love the chick craft — that sounds adorable!!!! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, Nicole! xoxo

  7. You did great! You are so relaxed on television; I would be trembling!

  8. OK, your apron is ADORABLE- totally completes your TV persona!

    • Thank you!!!! Oh my goodness, I received so many compliments on that apron, it was amazing!! And I totally LOVE it!!!! *glee*
