You’ll Remember These Dates

It’s already April, and my hopes for a bustling year-long Holiday Craftspectacular have sort of fizzled. I’m not giving up, but you know how it is – it will be December before we know it, and I won’t have gotten anything done (at all, not to mention early). Well, here is something that would totally work now, this time of year, for next year… SeptemberHouse’s 2011 DIY Calendar Panels! I ordered a 2010 one as a Christmas present last December for my mom. Wow. I thought it was cute, would be a nice crafty gift, but WOW! You have to see these. She finished the back and top in patchwork. She embroidered/circled a few special dates and hung it with a dowel.

They come with all the months/dates printed, on 100% cotton, ready to DIY. You’ve got the top, sides, bottom and back to do whatever you what. The possibilities are just so endless, it’s almost hard to describe. Am I rambling? You really need to see these. Corinne has more finishing ideas here.

Just got next year’s for a Mother’s Day gift this year. This will be a work of art by 2011! And they come impeccably packaged, ready to gift.

My words don’t do these justice. She  has other great items in her shop, and has a cool blog. Support this great ETSY seller!


Grey IS the new blonde…

Ok, here’s a trend most of us are destined for. Some will fight it; others will take it as it comes. Kate Moss knows where it’s at.

Go Kate!

DeNardi Creative Design on Etsy

I first came across DeNardi Creative Design when I discovered her Mini Babushka Doll Brooches. They made me want to see more, and it turns out I share Karen’s love of  European folk art (check out her Dala horse brooch!). Graphic designer by day, violinist by night, Karen knows the importance and fun of detail. This is obvious in her all creations. Started in August 2008, DeNardi Creative Design has sold all over the world as well as in shops in her Australian homeland. To celebrate all things turquoise, DeNardi is offering FREE shipping on turquoise items in store (see her shop for details)!

SureAsBlue on ETSY

Next time you’re on ETSY, check out SureAsBlue. Ange got things going back in 2007, and hasn’t stopped! Her attention to detail is amazing, and her work ethic would make the most conscientious person feel like a slacker. Her images will bring a smile to your face! I am a little biased – I know her and consider her a good friend, but you won’t go wrong with SureAsBlue – who doesn’t need a calendar or a print or Jello Stapler Card?
