Glittered Roses Artisan Week

2 Dec

This week I am the featured ARTISAN on Glittered Roses Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Glittered-Roses/278487808854550

Glittered Roses creates and supports handmade. When you know the creator, you know the passion. When you know the passion you know the care it took. Promoting partners in such a diverse community rather it be a retailer that provides products or an individual who does the construction, highlighting the unique aspect of handmade businesses through social media is a great way to bring information forward. This week you will have an opportunity to take a look at my business and the crafts the I create by hand. Be sure and stop by Deirdre’s page and let her know I sent you.

I do have to say I am more of a crafter for giving than for financial gain.  I have yet to figure out how to make it all work to make money doing what I love.  But, I am here today to show you some of the past thing’s I’ve recently done.  I am mainly a paper crafter, and oh boy do I love paper!!

These are some Sugar Plum Fairy Baby’s First Birthday card I did .

Cards are easy to personalize for people, even over the internet.

I am lucky enough to work a craft store in the area  live in.   It is called Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames.  It has been owned by the same family since their opening, 40 years ago.

You should visit our Facebook Page.  Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames-Grass Valley

These are some Washi Tape Cards I am going to teach a class on after the 1st of the year.

Hello Crafty Ones!
I am here to show you my I Heart Ippity project, hooray:)
I have used a lot of different stamp sets for this;)
The polka dot gift bag, I picked up over at Deena Ziegler.com.
I made a heart shrinky dink with some Grafix Arts Red Shrink Film.
Inside my gift bag is a candy filled tube of M & M’s.
Plastic tube and papers are from my workplace, Ben Franklin Crafts in Grass Valley, CA.
Now to let you know all the stamps I used, get ready….
What do you think?  Wouldn’t you love to get a Valentine like this?
I hope I have “WOW”ed you today!  Thank for stopping by and visiting.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s I Heart Ippity‘s post.
