Freedom! Monday Mentionables

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, Civil Rights Day, or whatever else you want to call it, I went in search of items for this Monday's mentionables. All items were found by using the search term, Freedom. I am grateful to all those who have, who do , and who will fight for freedom for all.
God Bless You!

Vaelntine's Day!

Valentine's day will be here before you know it, so I thought I'd do a quick post with some great, inexpensive gift ideas for your loved ones, from kids to teachers to girlfriends.

First, The kids. From mom2twogals, we have a beautiful tutu that any fairy princess would be proud to wear!

And for mom's little man, how about this tattoo style shirt from sweetlittleJack?

Having a Valentine's Day party at school? This banner from cbcreations would be a great addition to the teacher's decorations.

Looking for something for that special girl or guy in your life? How about a necklace that says "I love you" from SigaliotJewelry?

Or a customizable money clip from ajsoftail?

Hopefully, this will give some ideas, and a good starting point for your shopping.
Thanks for visiting us and supporting handmade!

Welcome to a Brand New Year!

Wow! It sure has been awhile since I've posted anything on here! The Christmas season is a busy, busy time. But, we're back, and wishing you all a
Happy New Year!
While things were a little crazy, I've still had a little time to work on some new projects. One thing that I find is lots of fun is creating T-shirt transfer designs. They require little more than a computer, and an image manipulating program.
For my latest, I purchased some clip art (
for a very reasonable cost,no less) from Scrappin' Doodles that allows me, as a small craft business owner, to sell items created using those images. Here are some images creating using some of what I bought:

Now that thingsare back to their normal routine, be on the look out for more new products and designs coming soon!
