And a Good Evening too!

Thank you to Tallib of Etsy for adding one of my newest felt hair accessories to her amazing treasury: Forget the World. The treasury went Front Page this evening.

Link Tallib makes adorable crocheted accessories such as headbands, hats and brooches among other things. Here's a peek at one of her items, but you should take a peek at her shop to see it all.


Good Morning Indeed!

Jascamille's beautifully soft - pale pink and gray treasury went to the FP of Etsy this morning.
Thank you Jascamille for including my layered felt flower hair clip in blush and gray in your gorgeous treasury.

Jascamille makes gorgeous polymer clay paisley earrings and pendants in shades as sweet as her treasury. Please go take a peek at her lovely shop.

Splash - Treasury goes FP

This is a super, super busy time for me ... I have a show coming up, a few wholesale orders to finish up before the Thanksgiving holiday and it's a juggling act maintaining inventory for all of the places that I currently sell my work.

My website needs updates, as I have a bunch of new items and new styles to show to you all that I am really excited about. (psst...a few have been listed on Etsy. go peek!) I'm sure I will not be posting much over the next week or so...

but I did want to show off this pretty treasury that went to the Front Page of Etsy on Nov. 17th. Be well...

New Layered Flower Colors for Winter/Fall

I did a few custom Large Layered Felt Flower brooches for an Etsy customer and they came out so pretty, that I am going to keep listing them in my shop. I've been meaning to get around to mixing up some new winter colors for awhile now and have not relisted some old favorites after they sold recently. Change is good... now if I could just set aside some time to get the rest of the color combinations out of my head and into my shop.

Take a peek.

Weekend Art

E just had a birthday recently. She received so many great art kits. {FUN!} She also received some real art supplies {watercolor pencils, erasers, charcoal pencils,etc} and her own Art Bin to store them in. Too cute! So I gave the kids a little lesson in watercolor today ... they soon realized it is way harder than it looks.



This led to a great idea to make our own Handmade Watercolors Thank You Cards for the guests at E's party.
~I just cut small rectangles out of watercolor paper.
~E sketched little flower designs and colored them in with the watercolor pencils and a wet paintbrush.
~We mounted the designs on complimentary colors of cardstock {E just used one of her glue sticks} and then attached them to the front of our blank white cards that I had previously cut and scored.
~Inside the card, E wrote out her thank you notes to all her guests.
~Then she stamped a few designs inside. She also stamped the words Thanks on the front of the card.
~We even made sticker labels for the back of her handmade cards:



Again, we took a little rectangle of watercolor paper, she designed her label herself and then I scanned it in and printed them out on a sheet of sticker paper. So easy and just finishes off the look. I'll post a photo of one of her cards tomorrow!

Another Treasury makes FrontPage!

Woot-woot! This treasury that I made, titled {{ pale with sprinkles }} made it to Etsy's Front Page today. Sweet!
