Holiday Decor

window display

I am so in love with Buffalo Plaid! I think everyone is, by the way, it is everywhere in the marketplace. It, however, does not match my home decor…even for the holidays, so when I found gray gingham, I was over the moon.  I made a pillow for myself, and then had a friend ask me to make a couple for her, and then brought some to a boutique..and a few more special orders ensued.  Seriously my most popular item outside gift tags!


I have one left, that is pre-done, and can probably eek out a few more special orders before the holidays (although working on some fun ones that can be left out throughout the year!).

If you’re interested, in the pillow,  it is $36 for just the cover, or $48 with the pillow insert (not including tax/shipping) please let me know!

tis the season

The Answer is always…Wine?

That was the response from one of my customers when I used this cute stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop on her packaging! Lately..i tend to agree..although my caffeine withdrawal migraines might beg to differ.

Regardless of your choice..this stamp set is too cute and can be used…for so many applications.  Here I used it to give a bottle of wine to a girlfriend who has just had  another setback with her broken tibia& fibula from a March skiing accident! She might not be able to bear weight..but she can sit and drink wine !

The stamp set is available starting next week on July 19th at Sweet Stamp Shop.

Copic Shortage

Copic - *#0538 SKETCH 12PC EX-4 SET

As you may have heard  with the increased popularity of Copic markers within the crafting community, there’s been a bit of a Copic shortage as Copic has not been able to keep up production with demand. They’ve started production in a new facility, but when you’re working with color, consistency is key and production has been slow to ramp up as they insure that color and ink consistency meet their standards. As some of you have experienced with your custom ink orders, our distributor has not been able to fulfill many of the orders that we drop ship to you.  If you’re interested in the premade sets, they still are able to fulfill many of those.

As always our prices are 25-35% below MSRP on the Copics! Email us for your color or set preference.

As the type of marker (sketch,original or Ciao) is a personal preference we do not carry stock of these in house, unless it’s for a specific class.

As always we can only ship Copics within the 48 continuous states.
