more giveaway fun!

Not us this time. But we're passing along a few links to other sites who are giving away free stuff! Gotta spread the love. :) Making Memories is having a giveaway on their blog. I've always been a fan of their products and they're giving away some of their *brand new* before it hits the stores product! Pretty cool. My favorite picture of their new product are these doors.. especially the pink one! Love 'em! Check it out HERE.

And the second site is a wonderfully stylish blog for Indie shoppers. They do a giveaway every month! We'll be participating in their giveaway in the next couple months (we'll keep you posted.) There's so many fabulous designers on this site. You can check it all out HERE. Good luck my friends!

edit: one of the things Modish is asking you to do is look at one of the sites and post one thing you love (love this idea!) These adorable nesting earrings found HERE are what I chose. So sweet.

Are you all enjoying your summer?? We sure are! Have you heard this lately... Mooommmm... I'M BOOORRED!! Well we've got just the thing! We've created three different (affordable) kits perfect for a rainy day indoor project or beautiful afternoon outdoor project. Isn't this frog kit the cutest?? We have a flower shape kit that's perfect for your girlie girl. And finally an adorable seahorse shape kit that's suitable for a girl or boy. The kits come with an 8 inch shape and enough supplies to actually do a couple shapes so check our shoppe for additional shapes to add! Our goal was to make our summer fun kits affordable so they're all priced under $10. Happy Creating!! Check everything out in our Etsy shoppe HERE.

welcome Hannah Grey!


Our giveaway was successful in more ways than one! The lovely Heather Simpson-Bluhm over at Bluhm Studios saw our products and thought they'd be perfect for her friend Shoshanah's shop, Hannah Grey Curiosities & Drygoods. Well, she sent our link to her and we got to work on her first order! She's attending the vendor faire at Art Unraveled, an incredible week-long event full of classes with many talented collage artists including Tim Holtz, Traci Bautista and Michael deMeng just to name a few. I guess if we can't be there at least our product will be! :) She's ordered two very cool alphabet sets along with some other funky shapes that I know will do well there. You really must go visit the Hannah Grey website. There's albums with inspiring artwork found HERE and of course lots of fun and funky shopping can be found HERE. Thank you Shosh! We look forward to working with you!



As a special thank you to Heather we're sending out a package full of goodies and of course we'll include a special monogram! If there's a shop in your area who may be interested in carrying our products, please pass along our information and we'll get a care package out to you if they place an order.

thank you + girlie winner

I just wanted to thank each and every one of you who took the time to comment. We read through each of them.. it sort of became a nightly routine after dinner. :) If you linked your blog I went for a visit. I think that was my favorite part of the giveaway.. seeing so many new blogs and seeing the talent out there!! We were really blown away by the number of comments! Too fun!! We’ll be having LOTS of giveaways in the future so please keep checking in! We’ve also got some fun things planned in addition to adding lots of new product to our Etsy shoppe! Thank you each again and I wish we could have given something to each of you. The winner of our girlie giveaway is… Jen at The Cottage Nest! I’ll be contacting you this morning! Thank you all. You’re the best!!

I’ll leave you with some inspiration from a couple people who’ve ordered from us and their finished product. They’re each so different but I love them both!! I love the idea of the photo gallery on the staircase and one word of meaning to tie it all in. Love it Karla! And Sara… this is Sara’s first attempt at being crafty and I think she did a beautiful job. I’ve always loved old papers and I love the vintage look of these. She’s got a gorgeous website full of antiques, collectibles and all things inspiring. And they really are! Go visit!

CREATE kit

We did a variation of this kit for Mother's Day and it was such a hit that we're reviving it! Back by popular demand if you will. :) Included in your kit are these 6 inch CREATE wooden wall letters (with keyholes in back for hanging) and tons of new and thrifted finds I've collected along the way. Some items will vary but they'll all include instructions to decoupage your letters, the fabulous 6x6 Foofala papers (and other coordinating papers) and *plenty* of new and vintage embellishments, ribbons and other flea market finds to complete your letters! You can now find them in our Etsy shoppe! Happy Creating!
