Tooth Fairy Pillows

I know it will only be a matter of time before Lo starts to loose his teeth.  So in preparation for the big day I made him this pillow to hang on his door.  This way I won't have to sneak into his room under his pillow!  I will now be carrying these to sell for $15.00 each!

2nd March Giveaway!!

It is time for the 2nd March GIVEAWAY!!  Let me introduce you to Lindsay of LC Vintage Jewelry....

Hello! I'm Lindsay Van Cleave, originally from Baltimore, MD, I headed North to New York City to start my career in advertising. While pursuing my career, I formed LCVintage and have been working towards growing my other passion for designing jewelry ever since. I have loved design and crafts since I was a little. I was always the girl who had a special craft to make as a party favor for all my birthday parties. I started hand making jewelry a few years ago and find it so exciting to watch LCVintage grow. I have my fiance to thank for being my constant cheering section as I follow my dreams. We get married this October. I can't wait!



A bit about my design process:
Most of my designs are inspired by vintage fashion and my grandmothers - Ida, Constance and Sara - whose jewelry I still wear today. I love to blend vintage beads and brooches with modern high-quality materials to create a new chic look. I find the story behind the vintage items I collect by scouring flea markets, antique shops and vendors online fascinating. It just adds a little something extra to each piece. Two of my great loves are piling on fantastic jewelry and the 1950s! I'm so enamored with the time period because people dressed to the nines just to take a Sunday stroll or go shopping. I swoon!

The lucky winner will get this amazingly beautiful blue bracelet!

1st March Giveaway!

It is so awesome to find amazing talented friends!  My best friend introduced me to Kendall's talent and I couldn't wait until a later month to feature her & to GIVEAWAY one of her beautiful hats!  The pictures below are examples of her Spring Sunhats.  If you win she will custom make you a Spring Sunhat!!  So read below to find out how to enter!!  

I would like to introduce Ms. Kendall and her shop Simply Styled Gifts!
Where are you from? From Overland Park, KS

Married, single, kids? I'm married to my amazing husband Jarod. We have two wild boys, Gage, 4 and Mason 2.


What do you enjoy doing with your free time? I enjoy traveling and running. I also like to garden, but my LOVE is cooking and entertaining.

Favorite color? Sea glass/Blue green

Favorite food? So many things...But I love slow cooked pork...it can be made into many different meals.

If you could throw a party for yourself, what would the theme be? Wow, hard to decide, I am usually doing the planning for others. I love my annual summer girls weekend with wine and gossip and good food. I am pretty laid back.

Which talent you wish you had, but you don’t? I love music, but am not musical. I wish I could really sing or play an instrument.

Who or what inspires you to be creative? I love to look at the world around and see what colors come together in nature.

What thing or things do you enjoy shopping for at Michaels/Hobby Lobby or any craft store? Yarn, yarn, yarn.

Tell me about your etsy shop/online store. How, why, when did you start your business? To be honest, I am not a fancy computer wizard. I am sure my site could use some TLC, but I hope it shows the variety of what I can produce. I started getting more serious about my crocheting last fall, so I am still in the baby stage of making it a business, but I LOVE what I am doing.

What do you love most about blogging, facebook, and/or having your own etsy shop? My degree is in interior design, but I have been a stay at home mom for 4 years now. It is wonderful to get back to working with color and textiles and creating beautiful things!
