A New Swap!


For those of you that have been reading for a while, you may be familiar with the craft swaps that Lizette and I have done in the past with Bee Creative Swaps. This time, my friend Nicole from Kitsch Empire and I are going to host one!

The Details
It's like a crafty secret santa! To start you'll just fill out a simple survey (your name, email, favorite color, etc.). Next we'll secretly pair up the participants and you'll get an email with a your buddy's information. Then, you make a small present for your swap partner and ship it out before the deadline.  In return you get an awesome hand made gift just for you!

Interested? Great! 
 Just sign up by clicking here! Sign ups end Friday, November 28th (Black Friday) and the swap begins Monday, December 1st. We ask that all gifts are in the mail by Thursday, December 18th. That will give you plenty of time to get crafty!

Here's a few photos the Ornament Swap we did two years ago

Tiny Gifts for Tiny People




This holiday season, I'm making it my goal to hand-make all of my gifts. That is usually my goal every year, but at some point the "OH CRAP! Christmas is like...today!" moment kicks in and I ended up trying to figure out what I can purchase to save time. To kick off the crafting spree, I've been working on some things for some friends that just had the teeniest (and cutest!) baby. Appliqu├ęs are a great way to use up some fabric and do a quick gift and I've been adding designs to pre-made onsies. I say "quick," except I'm making like a bajillion so quick has turned into taking-a-little-while. There not really for Christmas, but it feels nice to be making things again and to get started on new projects. I'm really bad about taking the time to be creative for myself, but I'll stay up all night making things for other people.
