A New Twist

I have been salivating over the many bright vintage earrings on Etsy lately and decided to finally pull out my jewelry supplies and make some for myself. I found some great vintage beads from Etsy suppliers, as well as a terrific price on sterling silver wire and headpins (also at Etsy). After a few hours of practice on some old wire to loosen up those rusty skills, I was all ready to go. The results were very satisfying - a simple design, so totally my style.

But what to do with the extra beads? And how to incorporate this different direction into my existing shop. The earring tree card was born! I'd love to hear your thoughts on my creation - please leave a comment if you have a moment to spare.

Gerber daisies have been my favorites for as long as I can remember, so it was especially sweet to receive them from my in-laws following a recent surgery. They brighten every room!

New! Birdie Birthday Cards

With the end of the holidays and the start of the new semester, there hasn't been much time to dream up, and implement, new card designs lately. But last weekend I stole a few hours and put together these little birdie cards. I wanted to have some bright and cheerful new designs for our big family birthday month of April, and these will certainly fit the bill!

Lunch Just Got a Little Brighter

I admit it. We are paper towel diners. We had a friend over for Thanksgiving dinner this past fall, put together the prettiest little table (with a tablecloth even!) and had to use paper towels for napkins.

No more.

After some thinking and reading and internet surfing and more thinking, I decided to try my hand at some simple cloth napkins. The results were so sweet that I decided to put them in my second Etsy shop.

The best part? They are small enough for my lunch box and are super washable! Eco-friendly and perfect for day-to-day use. What more could a moonlighting seamstress ask for?

Would love to hear your comments and ideas on this simple little design!

Love Coupons Are Back in the Shop

I was fortunate to find some time to put together another limited run of my handmade valentine love coupons, which were so popular last year. These little lovelies are completely customizable, so if there's special text you'd like to include, you can specify at time of purchase. A delightfully handmade and truly enjoyable gift for BOTH of you!
