Another quick share...

Recently I've finished up a couple of things and wanted to get them posted here for everyone to see. The first thing is an adorable (if I say so myself) coaster shelf sitter for Katie. Complete and ready for her own pictures. (click on the photo to see the detail in this one)These letters were cut using the Wishblade and then I added a bit of Crystal Accents and a few little rhinestones too. I'm not sure if its been mentioned here before...if so, I apologize now...but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Bind-It-All. That's what I used to coil these bad boys together.

The other share for today is another 4x6 photo frame. This one,with a bright tropical theme. I really like how this one fades from blue to green. And also how the flowers in the corner "pop". So bright and summery...perfect for our summer vacation help remember as the cold temps start rolling in soon. (for some of you) You can't really see the detail in this picture but the flowers all have a touch of glitter on the petals and Crystal Accents too. Again, just click on the pic and you'll get a larger pic that will allow you to see more detail.

We're still working with our talented web gal on getting the site up and running. (the Etsy shop too) We're currently caught up on all of our custom orders and are now going to start concentrating on making a few things for our upcoming Craft Fairs that we're participating in. We're going to FOUR different events (so far) between now and Thanksgiving. I'll get those dates and events up here in the next few days so, if you're in the Orlando area, you can stop buy and see us in person.

And with that...I'm off to create for just a bit and then we're off to our very first HS Football home game tonight. We went undefeated last year...lets see if we can do it again!

You know what that means? It means that we should have LOTS to share with you all in the upcoming weeks. I know that Maggi and Carmen have been working hard creating some great goodies. Stuff that I haven't even seen yet.

Ready for some new stuff??

School is back in session and we're hoping to get a lot of new stuff created and ready to share with all of you soon. There are a lot of fun and exciting things going on behind the scenes for us and we hope to share a few things with you soon. We are in the process of having our website built and you'll have the opportunity to view and purchase items online. We're also working on opening an Etsy shop too. The Etsy shop will be open VERY soon and the link will be shared here on the blog as soon as its up and running. The website will stay as and we'll have a link to our blog on that site. We'll be sure to keep you up to date on everything as they happen.

Tropical Storm Fay has been dumping rain on us since early yesterday and what better time to create than on a rainy day or two. (or three) This is a frame that I created last night, while waiting out the storm. I wasn't sure where I would go with my creativity so I pulled the first paper that inspired me and this is what we got. This one is yet another new favorite of mine.

I shipped a few more orders early this week. I'll share photos of some of the items that are on their way "home" now. If these belong to you, its time to start stalking the postman...they should be arriving very soon. I redid the "KYM" frame so that the photo orientation was portrait instead of landscape. I also changed the "Ace & Duce" frame so that the photo would be landscape on that one. Ace and Duce are two big dalmations and I thought they'd fit much better in a landscape opening. I'm pleased with the outcome of both of these and can't wait to hear feedback from our clients.
Remember, all of our frames and gifts can be customized to fit your needs. Contact us at to place an order. If you're looking for something and don't see anything similar, drop us an e-mail and we'll work with you and get something done to suit your needs.

We also do greeting cards, birthday gifts, birth announcements and more. So when you're looking for a little "sumpin else"...look to us.

And finally...the last share for now...a slide of the latest mini book creation. Maggi created all of the inside pages for this one and I did the cover. Our client asked for "Princess Colors" and Maggi did such a great job with coming up with a two page spread for pretty much all of the Disney Princesses.

This mini book measures 10.5in. by 6 in. but we have other sizes available to choose from.

Until next time...

More to share...

We've been busy the past few days and have a few more orders going out to their rightful owners.

This frame was a take from a sample that we had at the Dance America Nationals. The sample was done in a shimmery pink and our client requested a larger frame in black. I think the black/pink/white color combo is quickly becoming one of my favorite color combinations. I'm sure Kym's dance photo is going to shine in this frame!
How about these funky frames!! Again, a take from a sample that we had on display at Nationals. Our sample was done in BRIGHT green but these are done in a local school color, orange. (and can be done with any about bright pink??? How cool would THAT look??) The zebra prints are a big trend these days and the bright colors just POP with them. So simple, but oh so fun!!

Our first college frame...this one for a PITT Panthers fan. This one set the creative wheels turning. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at a few other colleges. Got a favorite? Let us know by e-mailing us at That font looks so "schoolish", doesn't it? Like I said...the wheels are many more ideas floating in the inspiration bank with this one!!

Another different theme for us here...a doggy theme!! This frame will be on the sample table at the next event. I'm currently working on another one, just like this one...but for a horizontal photo. I like the simplicity of this one and the red/black/white is a definite color combo favorite for me.

We have a couple of mini albums that are just about finished and ready to ship. Those photos will be shared very very check back often.

Have a question? Need to place an order? Just drop us an e-mail at

Till next time!!

Two Toadally Cute...

Just finished this frame and I think it's a cute one. This one is going to a brand spanking new set of twin boys. I wanted to use these adorable little froggies and this title kept hopping into my brain...and our client loved the here, we go.

I'm working on a couple other things right now. A PITT frame and a doggie frame too. I'll be sharing those as soon as they're finished.

Thanks for looking!

Home again and a new share...

I'm home from vacation and still trying to get back into the groove of things. Our week in Michigan was awesome and I wish the weather in Florida was just half as nice as it was up there. Better yet, how nice would it be to live up there in summer and down here in the winter? Yeah...that's it...I wanna be a snowbird! LOL Six months here and six months there. That'd be THE life!

I had a request for a frame and mini album for a little guy's 1st birthday. Our client wanted this to somewhat match the theme of Bryer's room so I had her send me a photo so that I could match colors, etc. This is the photo that she sent me (from the internet) Bryer's daddy owns a concrete company so our client wanted to include the dump trucks and concrete trucks in the book. I paper pieced a few little trucks to go in the book and to go with the theme.

THIS is the finished product...both frame and book. My friend and Stampin Up demonstrator, Bilynda, shared a super paper pack that she had in her stash and I'm so thankful for her for this. It was PERFECT for this little book.

The order was picked up this evening and our client was pleased with how well the colors matched the photo. She can't wait to give them to the birthday boy and his Mommy. Of course, I can't wait to hear their reactions!

We have a few more things that we're working on to finish up the orders from Dance America. Look for photos of those coming soon!

Till next time...
