Secret Santa Swap

I participated in one on Ravelry...My favorite group was hosting..(Peaches & Creme) Here's my loot!! I scored. My Santa was awesome because she even stalked my blog...and bought me the necklace from EverythingElaine on etsy that I wanted. :)

Totally brightened my day and made me smile! Love it!!

Friday Feature- Kenzie's Klippies

Hello world! I have a really fun Friday Feature today. Seriously, I think you will love looking through this post as much as I loved putting it together. Let's begin, shall we?

Today I am featuring Kenzie's Klippies a business run by such a talented momma I met through our birth board. She became inspired to craft by the birth of her daughter. Here are her words,

"I initially started making simple clips for [my daughter], but then started getting requests for certain things. It just took off from there. With so many people making clippies, I knew mine had to be different. I'm big on details :) So I suppose my mission is to provide customized, quality hair clips at a fair price. Some of my clips take literally hours to make. I want people to feel like their money was well spent :) And of course I want them to come back!"

Wanna look at some of them with me?

Her all new Christmas Collection:

And she doesn't just make them for the holidays, she creates marvelous creatures:

And sweet creations: 

Headbands and bows too:

Best of all, Kenzie's Klippies won't break the bank! They are all so nicely priced, and so well made! These would make wonderful stocking stuffers for any girl in your life...and if you ask her, she'd even make them into  pins for you to wear! :)

So check out her facebook page http://www.facebook.com/KenziesKlippies  where she is always adding something new and cute, or her website http://www.wix.com/kenziesklippies/kenzies-klippies-1 and let her know you saw this blog. If you do, you will receive a free simple klippie in your order! 

So go. Go now!! She has soooo many more items to look at than I could share!!!

What are you still doing here??

Have a great weekend everyone!

Is already halfway through!! Wow that was fast!

I will be posting a pattern for little mommy doll slipper pattern soon. My little lady has been begging me for something to cover her little baby's feet!

I just had an eye appointment today, got me some contacts again!! Yeee haw!

Been working on tons and tons of slippers, I feel like I am just treading water keeping things afloat over here...just barely. I am really looking forward to closing down the shop for some much needed time off for the holidays.

Christmas shopping is pretty much finished. Well, for the toddlers..not for Mr Toddlerwhisperer...he's a little more tricky! :)

How about you? Finished? Started?

Friday Night Feature EverythingElaine

Tonight (because today was so busy) my feature is a shop I was introduced to a little over a year ago.

EverythingElaine on etsy is such a fun place to browse for almost any occasion gifts!  She has sections for each of the following : custom printing, greeting cards, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, bookmarks, hair accessories, destash, and seasonal. Really, something for everyone. Like Elaine says, "You don't have everything until you have EverythingElaine."

Last year I was fortunate enough to make a trade with her, and received some beautiful items I used as gifts...and something I gave to ME!
pretty much my favorite earrings ever

Do you have a reader in the family? Need a stocking stuffer or a gift for a co-worker?
book thong $10

bookmarks $7.50 each

Here are some beautiful earrings that are just begging to be purchased!

Now lookie looo, a necklace I think might go nicely with my earrings...
(hint hint Mr Toddlerwhisperer...)

Before I go, I do want to share something she makes for jewelry makers...custom jewelry cards. I love these. They give such a professional look to your finished jewelry.

So go check out her shop EverythingElaine and see what goodies you may behold!
