Hand Made Trades

I have recently gotten in to doing trades for crafts! I really love this idea. It keeps me crafty outside of work, and I love getting hand made goods as well. There is nothing better then sitting at my desk at work and getting a package and knowing that something that someone put time and care in to is in there. And the same goes for the crafts that I send out.

I recently received this hat from Gilly at Time For Peppermint Tea. It is so perfect! I love the color, the softness of the yarn, and it actually stays on my head because she took the time to ask me for my head measurement. Check out her hats, socks, and other knitted goods on her blog!

In return I traded her a few handmade cards that you can see here

I really love making cards for people. There is nothing better then putting some love in to a card and having someone save it.

Thank you again Gilly for the trade! I have another trade set up that I’m working on right now that you will have to come back and see!

If anyone would like to make a trades for any crafts I am more then up to it if you are! You can contact me here or email.

Bows bows bows!

While I don’t celebrate Christmas, I do love giving people gifts on the holidays. This year was a bit hectic, so I didn’t get to wrap my presents exactly how I wanted to. However, I did get a link from a friend to these homemade bows that you can make out of any random paper you have lying around.


Once you get the hang of it they were so easy to make! I wish I had double sided tape instead of glue, because they would have held much better, but I think they look great!

I hope that everyone has a safe a happy holiday! Enjoy time with your friends and family, and eat lots of good food!

Eliana Rose

When my cousin Jami announced that she was pregnant with her first child, myself and every one that I talked to was so thrilled! Nine months  later, Eliana Rose was born on November 2nd (her exact due date) at 1:46 am.
As a present to bring to Jami for her gorgeous little girl, I wanted to make her something that she would love and appreciate. I spent just a few hours working on this piece and I am so happy with the outcome! Jami and Eliana love it as well!

(I apologize about the awful photography, my camera is very old and I plan on purchasing one as a nice Happy Hanukkah present to myself .)
