i ♥ these

I really really love this style of charm bracelet. I love the chunkiness and how there's so much to look at. They are usually very expensive too! These are all from the queen's royal coach and they're all VERY affordable. I hope I get to have one of my own soon!!

I find myself doing this more and more...just having a look around etsy to see what I can find. I know I've seen this shop before but I haven't looked in a really long time and I'm so glad I rediscovered her! The shop is called the dreamy giraffe and these paintings are by just so adorable to me. I would love to have an original but those are definitely out of my price range. Luckily she does prints too...guess what's on the top of my Favorites???

etsy---creating keepsakes

I got my new issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine the other day, and I saw a project using cards from etsy shop living room floor. I buy stuff from her! I bought some tags for a project that I have yet to begin...but they're really cute! And I bought tags for my new shop from her too. I like her because she works in the same place I do...on the living room floor! I love that as a shop name.

Then in the same issue, I see some different tags I recognized, from every jot and tittle, who are in my favorites. Now I have even more of an excuse to buy some of these cute girly tags from them.

Seeing etsy artists in "real" magazines makes me so happy! It makes me think that maybe someday something I've made will be on the glossy pages of a CK too :)

pirate princess!

Another little book I've recently completed. My TOP SECRET project actually! This one is for Gretchen's first birthday which had a Pirate Princess theme. I used lots of paper from the Pirate Princess line from Rusty Pickle of course, and polka dot patterned card stock from doodlebug designs.

I love the feeling of going to the Post Office and sending off books! I just put three little beauties in the mail. One for Becca, one for Ash and one that's a secret! I'll wait till she gets it to show it off, but it's a really cute little girly one. I just love getting to do anything pink and/or girly!

So the book for Becca is actually for HER friend Rachelle. I used dusty blues and browns and shades of light green. It was interesting doing a book that was half girly half boy-y. LOL But I do like the way it came out. It feels very sturdy cuz I used mostly MME printed textured cardstock. I LOVE THAT STUFF!!! I can't use just regular paper now...regular paper feels like kleenex to me after using all that yummy thick cardstock.

The book for Ashley is a wedding book. It's a "blank" one, and as usual I just don't know if it's good or not. I never feel 100% great about my blank ones! I like the feeling of making them 100% complete but oh well, what can ya do. Hopefully she loves it and it's a hit @ the Bridal Shower.
