Colorful Whimsy and Good Prices

Handmade is great! The quality is far superior than items in stores of a comparable price range. The pieces are unique, often one of a kind. Haute couture for the financially challenged, right?!? That’s me – champagne taste on a beer budget!

Designing Beautiful Wedding Flowers

Growing up I loved flowers (still do), and I still remember all the varieties of flowers I used to see during my summers at home and when I worked on Mackinac Island. I’m also inspired by the books I read, as I said I love Jane Austen and I also enjoy fairytales and folklore from around the world, so a lot of that inspires me as well.

A true Pisces, I’m inspired by my environment. It’s s good thing I live in such a beautiful rural area! Wild violets populate the front yard, wild blackberries spring up along the driveway, and I get so excited when I see new young tree seedlings pop up.

Anyone can buy a machine made strand of beads- but where is the personal touch? Where is the customer service? The special care and attention to detail? I enjoy creating because I know that every thing that I make is going to be made with all of the above as well as a genuine thoughtfulness for the customers I am creating for.

Polaroid Decontruction meets Digital Love

Holly, it was truly a pleasure reading through your submission. After I finished making your featured crafter profile all pretty, I mosey-ed on over to the site you’ve set up for your daughter, Caleigh, at Caleigh’s Corner. I truly enjoyed reading all about your beautiful daughter. I sat here for awhile trying to find the words to describe your amazing daughter, but ultimately you say it best, “Caleigh is a fighter, a vision of strength & truly a miracle.” You and Caleigh are so blessed to have one another!

One day I decided Id like to throw a dinner party for some of my friends and thought it would be nice to have a new set of napkin rings to go with my newly purchased red cups. I stopped by a bead store and bought some red and green beads and some wires, and a few hours later, I’d made 8 very pretty spiral napkin rings! I fell in love with beads and turning them into pretty and useful items around the house.
