Cupid's Love Shack

Hearts, Love, Glitter, Candy, Flowers. What is there NOT to like about Valentine's Day? Nothing that I can see. I've always loved this holiday that some call "made up". Sure I get where they're coming from, but it's filled with so many pretty things. Quit ruining it for me, jerks!

It's not too late to get your sweetie pie the perfect gift. I searched the shops and came up with these fabulous gems. Take a hint from SNL about Valentine's Day shopping. Don't find yourself wandering the aisles at CVS after work tomorrow. The goodies below are much better options.

"C" is for Coil

I recently took a tour of Cascade Coil in Tualatin, OR and WOWZA! This place has some serious crazy fun going on. Who knew a metal coil factory could make such amazing products. This is definitely one of my new favorites. I want to cover the world in coil.

Spools and spools of metal wire are twirled around to make custom lengths of coil. And when I say custom, I mean any length you can imagine.

 Then I got backstage access to the Paint Room. It's like they knew I was coming, having purple coil drying on the racks. They can do so many colors!

This bad boy was packaged up and getting ready to head out to a sports stadium. Remember what I said about any size? This one is no joke.

Check out some of these stunning applications from Cascade Coil.

Thanks so much to Joe Ness and Cascade Coil for the super fun afternoon!
