New Shop Alert: Vintage finds by FALCON and FINCH

WOW!! You must check this shop out, less than a month old
and 6 sales already!

I want to use this as art!!

These plates are beautiful!!

Thrift Store Find

Here is the finished product of one of my Projects in the Works. 014Remember this post? All of my frames looked very similar to that one. I found then at Love INC for between $.50 and $1.50 each, what a steal!! 011

To start, I painted the frames and spray coated with clear finish. 016All of this fabric was from my stash and most of the ribbon although I did have to buy some solids because I usually use prints for my towels. 012

I covered the old pictures and cardboard with fabric and attached the ribbons. 015For this project, spray adhesive is your friend!! I love it especially so I could keep the fabric straight and smooth on the front side while finishing the back. 013

I embellished them with a little something and still have  a few more to finish before I show those. Wouldn’t these be cute for a little girl’s bows?

ecocreations bannerWelcome Courtney and Stacey from Eco Creations!! Here is a little bit about their work:Elliptic - Recycled Chestnut Drop Earrings

Here at Eco Creations green living is not just a fad. All of my designs are inspired by nature and I pride myself on the fact that all of our materials are eco-friendly.

Carnivale - Pastel Glass Pearl Beaded Bracelet Each piece of jewelry I create is completely handcrafted by me. While I design both macrame and beaded jewelry, I must admit that I prefer working on the knotted jewelry.

Flutter - Printed Wood Beaded Hemp Bracelet I also paint abstracts. I love the feeling of paint all over my hands and as such use only my hands to create my paintings.

Sea Monster - Peridot and Mother of pearl Necklace

So… Head over and check out their really cool shop!!

NIKE Human Race at Candlestone Golf Resort

This morning we went to the NIKE Human Race. John (my hubby) ran the 10K and the boys did the Candy Dash. It was super cold and pretty rainy but they enjoyed themselves.

New Promotions Material Is Here!!

My new business cards are here and I love them. Two-sided glossy, oohhhhh!! This is a different design but was done by MyTwoBabes when I opened my shop along with the other one. I decided to switch off for something new!

I designed these with VistaPrint. I don't know if everybody likes working with Vista but I love their postcards and you can't beat the prices. These are Thank You postcards with all of my links on the back and a space to write a message to my customers. I got 250 of them free just paid $6.61 shipping. Not too bad I don't think:)
