I got a custom request for a sketch book for a little girl.  What an awesome idea and I am having fun making it!  Here is what I have so far.  Just a chipboard front and back cover with plain paper in the middle to draw on.

I am so glad to be a part of this special gift for a little girl!

coffee sleeves... another new creation!!

how awesome are these?! if you are like me, i end up with a coffee, latte, chai, etc. from the local Starbucks at least a few times per week... each time grabbing the cardboard coffee sleeve. how cool would it be to personalize your cup and reduce your carbon footprint by not having to continuously throw tons of the cardboard sleeves in the trash?!
these coffee sleeves are made with fleece lining on the interior to keep your beverage warm (or cool, depending on your drink choice). the outer fabric gives a fashionable twist on the eco-friendly sleeve.
we are officially taking orders on these sleeves- which will be $4 each... at this price, they make a great small gift/stocking stuffer for the coffee-lover on your Christmas list!

current fabric choices:

Happy Sipping :)

What do you think?

A Year in Review 8x8 Scrapbook

Here is an 8x8 scrapbook I made: A Year in Review

I thought it would be fun to give to a newly married couple to capture their first year of marriage with a photo from each month. 

Or for a baby to document his/her first year.

Or for a family to capture a year of fun to either keep for themselves or send to Granparents!

What would you use it for?

Handmade Cards

Here are some cards I have been putting together lately.
