Back from Vacation!


I'm back from my week of vacation, which was WONDERFUL! If you're interested in viewing some pictures, please click here!

While I was on vacation I ran into a shop around the corner from my boyfriend's home called Just Scrap It! Wow! What a cute little shop! They must have everything under the sun!

One line that Just Scrap It! carries that I hadn't experienced before is BoBunny. It's so adorable!! I can't believe I was so blind! Ha! So now I'm looking for new lines. What are your favorite paper lines?! Do you have any suggestions?? I'd love to hear what you suggest! Leave a comment below and let me know!!

I was also introduced to Melody Ross's paper design from GCD Studio. WOW!!! And Stella and Rose Stamps?! Forgetaboutit!

I'm also pretty excited to say that I finally placed another order with Kimmie. UG! Such a difficult decision! Why can't we all have an unlimited amount of cash flow?! ;) Kraftin Kimmie is by far one of my favorite …

New in my Studio

Hi All,
Today I have this cute little card I thought I'd share with you all. ;) Made it the other night. As you can see, it's fairly simple (only one layer) but packs a punch! I love the 'giggity' sentiment! Hope you like it.

Also, I will be on vacation from 5/13/2011 to 5/22/2011 so my shop and blog will be down.

Interview with a Seller: CreationsbyWendalyn

Today's post comes to you via an interview with Wendy of CreationsByWendalyn. I'm a big fan of Wendy's creations, they extremely layered and fun. Enjoy the interview!

1. What’s your name and shop name and what do you do? My Name is Wendy and My Shop name is CreationsByWendalyn – I sell homemade cards. My blog is where I always try to post what I use to make my cards.

2. Where are you located? I am located in Minneapolis, MN

3. What’s the favorite part of your craft? The favorite part of crafting I think is coloring. I love to stamp image or print images and sit and color them. Reminds me of when I was young and coloring with my coloring book and crayons. Except now my crayons have turned to Copics. Too bad they aren’t the same price.
4. How long have you been crafting? I’ve been making cards and stamping for going on 10 years maybe 11 from my best guess. I’ve been crafting ever since I can remember with one thing or another fro…

What's Up?

Hi Everyone!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great mother's day! The last couple of weeks I have been sick and then I had to focus on school and work, so I haven't really been able to make very many cards lately. :(
I was, however, able to sneak one in! I hope you like it! It's bright and sunny and a happy little card. I'm very happy with how it turned out - simple, but cute! What do you think?

Interview with Jessie Beans

Hey Ya'll! Welcome Back!

Well, it's been a rainy May so far here in Seattle! Although, yesterday was 5th of May, which interestingly enough isn't really celebrated in Mexico... Anyways, I hope you all had a fun, SAFE time.

I met today's featured seller last year while I was working the UW Street Fair for Rachael's Handmade Designs. The street fair is usually pretty large, so I was taking a break and cruising to check out other booths and checking out my fellow crafters - and guess what! Jessie Beans' accessories caught my eye! I love her work and really admire how much color she uses and what cute ideas she comes up with! She's doing the fair again this year! Go Jessie, woot woot! Hope it goes great for you!

So here she is, no later delay! ;-)

1. What’s your name and shop name and what do you do?
I am Jessie S., and I run Jessie Beans Handmade Accessories ( I am Jessie S., and I run Jessie Beans Handmade Accessories (JessieBeans.Etsy.c…
