A beloved, but horribly neglected department of my personal crafty output.

What follows is a fun and crafty filled post that helped bring my wedding memories into much more beautiful light and will, hopefully, inspire you to get your craft on as well.

Give Away Number 2

GREAT BIG bunches of gratitude go out to all who have made our blog re-launch a HUGE success! We LOVE our customers and all of the great feedback we’ve gotten about the Design Team and the new projects. 

We also love Amy Barickman who has donated the two beautiful books we’re giving away this week.  Yes, that’s right…TWO.

Our second (and final) Blog Re-Launch give away is for Amy Barickman’s Vintage Notions. You can read a review of Vintage Notions on Vicki O’Dell’s The Creative Goddess Blog  PLUS a package of Botanical buttons so that you can create something of your own.

There are three ways you can enter:

1) Comment

2) Like us on Facebook – and come back here and leave a comment saying that you did.

3) Follow Us on Twitter – and come back here and leave a comment saying that you did.

We’ll leave this give away open until around Noon est on Friday 4/8.

Good luck!!


Easy Votive Candle Favor

This is a simple votive favor I made for a baby shower but it could easily be transformed into a wedding reception/shower favor by using buttons in white or in the wedding colors.

Simply glue buttons on the bottom 1/4 of a straight sided votive candle holder. Fill with small gems and place a battery operated candle inside.

Of course, you can use a real candle but most halls, churches and other public spaces won’t allow an open flame. Check with the venue where you are holding the event prior to choosing a real candle.
