Personalized Letters From Santa, Elaborate Cards & More!

We've just added several new paper goods to the website... kangaroos that double as treat containers and ornaments; pretty 3-D Christmas cards with richly embossed vintage images; old fashioned tags... very sweet things to send or display.

It's always hard to choose a favorite, but the kangaroos are pretty darn cool! I totally see them as favors at a kid's birthday party or hung on the Christmas tree with a pouch full of little peppermints.

My mom has always been a huge fan of Santa letters, so I'm guessing her top pick would be our personalized letters from Santa... darling poems, a vintage graphic of Santa and Rudolph, a reindeer stamp.

If you click the image above you can see all of our new paper pieces together.

Do you Know Dawn of Kiki La Ru?

I am smitten with Dawn's cake bunting! If you don't know Dawn yet, you must visit her etsy shop where she offers cake bunting for just about every festive occasion under the sun.

This particular bunting is called Snow Queen and features dreamy pink and cream pennants on pink and white bakers' twine.

If you're more of a DIY'er, Dawn also offers kits for you to make your own.  And she graciously notes where she gets her lovely props, like these sweet little bottle brush trees.

Free Banners & Avatars for Your Christmas & Holiday Promotions on Etsy

Are you having a Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion in your etsy shop? We are, and we can hardly wait! I've created several free banners and avatars for you to use just in case you want to really announce your sale.

Here's what to do:
Just click on the image you like to enlarge it to the correct size, then drag it on to your desktop. Banners are sized at 760 px by 100 px and avatars are 75 px by 75 px.

Some have text appropriate for a range of sales.  Others are blank for you to add your own text using basic photo editing software.

Keep scrolling! There are more below...


I love these large classic bulbs:

Had to include and orange one.  A blog I read frequently wouldn't have it any other way!

Hope you enjoy these, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.  I'm happy to help :)

A Weekly Wrap Up

We've been busy little elves carefully gathering orders and spending lots of time at the post office.  In between all the boxes and bubble wrap though, I've made back to back trips to Home Depot for paint samples for our wall.  We're still determined to paint it deep blue. 

This week we also made a group of crafting supply kits for a special group of scrapbooking ladies who'll be getting together with our blog friend, Cathe.  They turned out pretty awesome with a mix of specialty supplies from our shop; so awesome, in fact, that we plan on adding them to our offerings.  What do you think? Neat, yeah?

Well, I must run for now.  We're having a beautiful warm day today and the ocean is calling, so I'm sneaking down to go for a surf and enjoy the sunshine.  See you all back here soon!

New Shop Additions: More Paper Advent Calendars

We adore advent calendars and couldn't resist adding a few more to our already large selection.  All of these beauties are available HERE, plus about 75 more designs!

These bear angels have the sweetest faces.

This one has Bible verses behind the windows.

This one has beautiful colors.

And this one is super long.

This one is a standing 3-D style.  The folks bearing gifts fold forward and the manger and Bethlehem bend toward the the back.
This one has a charming family scene.

This one also has Bible verses behind the windows.

Rock On!

Look what was in my mailbox! A couple of weeks ago I won a gorgeous hand painted rock in Geninne's giveaway.  Isn't it adorable? He has the most charming look on his face.  Thank you, Geninne, I love him!

 I couldn't resist keeping the cloth and tie that the rock was bundled in.  And that's Geninne's card on the right, which now has a happy home on my refrigerator.  As for my new bird rock,  he has a proud place on my desk where I can enjoy him everyday :-)
