sissy love! giveaway!

hi girls!

well, things are getting crazy around here! sissy and i are just about ready to head to silver bella. this year we decided to bring some goodies to share at bella market, the vendor fair! (we have pretty much perfected the art of thrifting, and have found that we are plumb out of room in our own art studios and thought we could share some love!) so. we have been hustling and bustling around our art rooms and have put together a nice little batch of vintage supplies.

i've also put together some CUTIE PATOOTIE BABY BOOTIE kits. now. we are talking about the cutest little bare booties that you have ever seen. but i am telling you, they are in need of some serious embellishing, and i know that some of you would love the challenge! (i've got to warn you, though, ad-dict-ing!!!)

each kit includes:
1 bare bootie
2 pieces of trim
3 buttons
1 vintage embellishment (like an old flower, game piece, cupcake topper, buttons, charms, etc.)
1 scrap of lace
1 strip of tulle

we've just opened our etsy site. more supplies will be added after our trip to silver bella.

please leave a comment for your chance to win a vintage baby bootie kit! i will draw for a winner on thursday, october 28th.

thank you for stopping by!
happy day, dear blogging friend!

artful thursday - pretty name badges

only 6 glorious weeks until silver bella!!! eeeeekkk!
my list of things to do is getting shorter with each passing day. this week's goal is to get our swap treats finished. karla and i are hosting our first swap, the love chapter swap. we are just giddy, and sooooo pleased that some of the girls chose our little swap to participate in. we are providing handmade tote bags for each girl to collect the ornaments. these totes needed name badges, so here's my solution.

start with a poker chip.
circle punch some pretty paper. (melody ross paper - hobby lobby - gorgeous!)

i used some rub on transfer letters and a black ink pen to add the girls' names.

then i cut circle shapes out of scrap fabric, lace, and tulle. stacked 'em up and stitched 'em together.

hot glued the pin back on, and.....ta-da!

one more task scratched off the list!!! whooohooo!!

happy day, friends!!!
thank you so much for stopping by!
