Newest Items

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Hello there! Here are some photos of my new, up and coming items. I found some really great quotes online and I just hand to sick them on some plaques. These here are all made with recycled barn wood and repurposed paper (like always). Each one is cut, sanded and antiqued by hand to give it a finished, rustic look. Right now, grab two Pass-A-Long Plaques for $16 regular $18. This is part of the Holiday Early Bird Special . So stop buy The Boho Birdie and take a look!

Check Out Some of My Favs

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Here are just a few of my favorites on etsy right now. I have been searching around all day. This is what I came up with...

These hip, rustic coasters came from Urbanposture

This absolutely beautiful ring came from Blue Almonds

This totally fun pillow is from Brezomayo Designs

Those are just a few of my favorites right now on etsy. I have plenty more and as always much, much more to come!

My First Custom Orders!

At last Saturday's show I had a lot of interest in my shop. I even had two custom orders! I was so excited. I began work right away on these orders--I wanted everything to be perfect (like always). I had a request for a Bottle Buddy with a green and purple color pallet with the saying, "It's wine o'clock somewhere". Here it is!

I also had a request for a custom plaque with a pink color pallet and this quote..."Do more than think, ponder. Do more than hear, listen. Do more than watch, understand. Do more than exist, live life." This has to be one of my favorite quotes! Here is this one!

Holly Holiday Craft Show

Sunday, November 8, 2009

Last Saturday for the first time I participated in the Holly Holiday Craft Show. This was my third show. There was about 100 crafters there and I had a ton of fun! Many shoppers had ventured out, it was a beautiful day. As always I received tremendous support from my family and had so much help.

I met a lot of other artist and brainstormed ideas. I also met some wonderful shoppers. That is always my favorite part of these shows. Meeting new people and sharing ideas and inspiration with them.

I also got a chance to try out my new displays and items. I set up my recycled window frames to house my new Pass-a-Long Plaques. I also found some great wine bottles (empty of course!) to hold my Bottle Buddies. I was very pleased with the way everything turned out.

Now, I have a busy week a head of me. I am getting ready for another show for this coming Saturday at Dakota High School. Wish me luck!

Just Beautiful!

How pretty it is outside today in Michigan. It is the first part of November and I was able to take some photos outside in my bear feet!I sure hope this weather continues! There is not a single cloud in the sky--nothing but blue skies!
It sure does not feel like November 8th to me. Birds singing, sun shining and I did not even need to wear shoes or a sweatshirt!

Lets Get Down To Business

Saturday, November 7, 2009

Hey all! I finished my new business cards just in time for Holly's Holiday Craft Show (I will post some of those pictures tomorrow!). My grandfather helped with the printing, as always. My mom came up with the great idea to add the ribbon--just to give it that little fancy flair! They were a group effort and they turned out just as I had hoped. I am so pleased!

The ribbon was so easy to do! It was a little time consuming until you got the hang of it. All you have to do is punch a whole in one of the top corners with a hole punch, pop in a ribbon, tie a little bow and you are all set! Beautiful cards with a touch of flair--easy as 1, 2, 3!
