Giveaway Winner Announced!

~Sharing Holiday Love, Peace and Joy~

Good afternoon :)
Today is such a happy day. I awoke to the most beautiful hoar frosted trees. Snuggles with my puppy, coffee with mom and then a quick trip out for some appointments. Nothing fancy, just a lovely way to spend a chilly November morning.

I especially enjoy moments like that during this hectic time, and knowing that I have a busy couple of days coming up, I wanted to pop in and announce the winner of last weeks giveaway, before it slips my mind.

The randomly selected winner is comment # 6!
Congratulations, Nicola!!! 

Please email me ( with your choice of item from Ivana's Creations, and your address, and I will get it packaged and on it's way to you :)

I also have two little creations to share, which have just been added to the shoppe.

I wanted to pull out my pretty Precious Remembrance stamps that I got this past summer, and give them a try. It was a holiday set I just couldn't pass up. I knew that it would be one I would love playing with, and that the pretty written sentiments would be just perfect for homespun holiday cards. 

I also used pretty spool designs from Iralamija's Etsy Shoppe, pretty gingham Maja Design paper, felt from Crafty Wool Felt, and lots of lace, pearls, buttons and string from my box of scraps. 

To decorate the envelope, I also added some handmade buttons, liquid pearls, and a few fun die-cut shapes, like the miniature doily, which is one of my new favorites :)

The teensy little envelope has become one of those things that I seem to gravitate towards a lot lately in my crafting. It all started when I borrowed an envelope maker from a very dear friend of mine, and decided to make a few smaller embellishment-sized envelopes. They were so easy to pull together, and once done, I embellished them with some stitched stamping, and now I cannot get enough. I have a few more projects brewing with these pretty little miniature cuties. And I have a feeling once these are used up, I may just run out and buy my very own envelope maker :) 

I hope you are all enjoying this lovely November day,
