A Birthday Gift

My younger sister's birthday is coming up soon & I've been wanting to make her a wine cork message board for a quite a while. I made my older sister one last year & began one for myself at the time. You can read about it {here} in case you missed that post.

Anyway, for all three cork boards, I used vintage frames found at a thrift shop back in Connecticut. I think I paid $6 for the set of 3. I took the glass & original backs out & replaced them with thin plywood. Then glued the corks down with Tacky glue.

Here is a close-up of the card I made for her

I also bought her the fleur de lis hangar
from Urban Upcycles
I think she's really going to like these.....hope she doesn't see this before I send them to her!

Just a little peek at the new bakers twine sets that I've been working on. They're all nestled together here with the little brown birdy sets currently in the shop. I'm diligently working to get them listed. Still hoping to finish it up today. I know it's getting late in the evening for all the "East Coasties", so if you don't see them tonight, check back in the a.m. :-)

Almost forgot..........I've got a couple more Stampin Up stamp sets to list in the "spring cleaning extras" section.

I've been tangled in twine!

For the past week or so I've been wrapping twine......lots of twine......LOTS of twine. In fact, I've wrapped about 2500 yards of bakers twine! Why you ask? Well, I have new sets to list in my shop. New spool sizes & yardage amounts are coming this week!

All I need to do is take pictures for the listings & they'll be good to go. Hoping to have them in the shop Tuesday.
And what are these little cardinal bags for? Yep, you guessed sets of twine!

I'll update here again when the listings are ready. In the meantime you can find my current bakers twine listings here.

Under Construction Again!

Okay, so I really didn't intend to wait another whole month before posting again. Sorry about that! I don't even really have a good excuse other than LIFE is happening all around me. Who knew that could possibly happen?! LOL

In case you didn't notice, I've decided to change up my blog again. {Thanks to Cristi's Creations} I loved the other background, but it just wasn't working with my shop & I haven't had time to give my shop the makeover it needs. It's in the works though, but I think this new blog background will work with my current offerings as well as the new items coming soon.

Until I have a chance to list brand spanking new items, check out the latest updates. Faux Bois is still quite popular & I'd sold out of a few items so I put myself to work making some cards & tags.
Here they are:

In the coming weeks, I should be listing new sets of baker's twine. Keep an eye open for an announcement about that.

Spring Cleaning Update!

I've finally been able to list my extra rubber stamps in my "spring cleaning extras" section of my shop. Currently, there are only 5 listings, however I may have 5 more to list. I'm having a difficult time letting go of 2 sets & a friend is interested in 3 other sets. If I list any of the remaining 5, it will be this weekend so keep your eyes peeled!
Check out the stamps & see if there's something you like.

Spring & Early Summer Craft Shows or Weddings?

Do you have craft/art shows scheduled for this Spring & Summer? Or perhaps a wedding just around the corner?
If so, I've got some cute tags in my shop that may be perfect for either event. These tags make great price tags or gift tags on wedding/ shower favors.
Some of them are pictured below. All of these & more can be found in my "bulk tags" section.
They're all hand-punched & stamped by me & tied with bakers twine. I also take custom orders. See something you like but want a different color?......different quantity?........just contact me through my Etsy shop & we'll work on something perfect for you!

puppy tags....perfect for those of you who
make dog clothes, leashes & collars

Cute pink snails....perfect for children's items
as well as whimsical & garden items

sand dollar/ sea biscuit tags.....perfect for beach/ocean
themed art & jewelry

faux bois....perfect for any woodcraft & nature art

bird nest.....perfect for any nature themed art/craft work

gourd birdhouse....I absolutely adore these.
These would be great for any nature/woodsy craft items,
as well as all those handmade birdhouses/bird feeders.

acorns....these are my best selling tags besides the
faux bois tags! Everyone seems to love the acorns
for just about everything!

Don't forget, there are more tags listed here.
