all done!

Here are a few pictures of the 40 stockings I was able to make for a custom order I had. They were a lot of work, but also a lot of fun! I used a hUgE variety of fabrics, in color, pattern, style, and design.

The lady Iwas able to make them for is going to put them up in a display window for her clothing boutique, located in Georgia. She told me she would send me some pictures when they are all up!

So I promised to give lots of good holiday gift ideas...and had to share this quick sudsy treat before I hop off to bed. It is strawberry rhubarb soap. Just try and tell me that doesn't sound delicious?! It is from Savor and she has some great soaps, and other body products in her shop. A perfect stocking stuffer if you ask me!

stockings in action

This is a thank you photo that a customer sent me today! An awesome gal from Los Angeles, purchased three of my stockings and was kind enough to take a pic and send it my way! My stockings are in slots 1, 3, and 5. What a beautiful looking holiday mantle huh?

for the boys

Another holiday season is upon us and I have been thinking about gifts for all those on my list this year. For some reason, it is always easier for me to shop for girls and women, rather than boys.
So, I'd like to share a couple darling finds I've come across. Here is a travel wooden toy set by Clickity Clack that is amazing! It locks with a peg to hold everything in place and then opens easily for hours of fun. You have to check out their shop!

I also came across this hand soap in the shape of a grenade by Stinky Bomb. How clever! They have a whole variety of these soaps, in different scents and colors. You have to take a look!
And don't worry gals, there will be lots of fun ideas for all the girly girls on your list as well. So check back soon for some more unique ideas!

I am running a special sale in my shop! Let's get the fire started, and spark up some heat! I'm feeling cold here in my rainy, overcast, drizzly weather.

Please enjoy 30% off any one item in my shop. You have two choices to pay. One, let me know which item you are interested in and I will discount the item for you. Or, go ahead and purchase and pay for the item, and then I will refund you back the difference. (prior to shipping costs).

Warm up to some shopping!
