When I get back I'll be making plans for my first Home Show, in conjunction with Chicky Girls Hair Bows. She's another Etsy seller who I found using the Shop Local function on Etsy when I wanted some unique hair bows as a gift for some special little girls. Hopefully we'll be able to get the word out locally about our handmade products.
Oh, and I've also got to work on a special craft for my mom for Mother's Day! I can't say what it is yet, but I'll be sure and post about it once I give it to her. What are some of your unique handmade ideas for Mother's Day gifts?

I took a couple feather boas that I had laying around (probably left over from someone's bachelorette party in NOLA), wrapped them around a grapevine wreath, added a glitter egg garland and a couple bunny picks and voila! Instant Easter cuteness in less than 10 minutes!
This would be a great idea for a Mardi Gras wreath, or to use as a New Baby or Birthday Party wreath too!

Her other thrify fabric choices include cloth napkins, sheets and pillowcases, which all give a unique retro/vintage flair to her projects. So next time you are perusing the fabric store looking for inspiration, don't forget about visiting your local Goodwill and other thrift stores as well.
I also love the fabric she used for this little box bag, what a great travel accessory:
For all you coffee addicts, she also makes these great coffee cozies to protect your hands from those piping hot to-go cups:

The pictures don't do this frame justice, it really is gorgeous. I plan on personalizing the bottom of the frame with a name or phrase if it sells on Etsy and the customer wants it that way. If it doesn't sell it will have a prominent place in my living room!
Next on my crafting list is to get the big pile of tins I received last week prepped and sanded and ready to be painted and embellished. In the meantime, I'll be featuring some fellow crafters on my blog for inspiration, hope you enjoy!
