Another Giveaway??

Hi all!

I've been really anxious to have another giveaway!

I'm still undecided on what to give away... Stickers? A custom rubber stamp? Greeting Cards? A gift certificate to my shop? The possibilities are endless!

One thing I know for sure, though, is that I'll announce what I'll be giving away when I reach 200 Facebook fans! Right now, I have 112 fans so we've got quite a way to go. So, spread the word! Help me reach my goal and I promise to reward one of you with a goodie worth your while! :)

Here's a link to my Facebook fan page:

Thanks everyone!

Have a wonderful & crafty weekend!

A Giraffe Baby Shower

Earlier this week, I received an email about custom stickers for a baby shower. I was immediately excited. I LOVE custom orders!

She was having a giraffe themed baby shower and asked me to make some stickers for her favor boxes. She needed them right away so I created the design for her and she printed them herself. The baby shower was just in a couple of days!

I asked her to send me a picture of the boxes and here it is:
Aren't they cute? I really like the boxes, too!

I hope she had an awesome baby shower and I hope baby Ethan will get to see the pictures from the baby shower when he gets here!

Till next time,

Children's Hospital Foundation Charity Auction - Start Your Bidding!

Earlier this week, I was approached on Facebook about a charity auction. I was terribly excited & honored that I had the opportunity to do something good for others.

NatterBug's Bowtique is hosting an online charity auction to raise money for The Children's Hospital Foundation. There are several items already listed for the auction but the bidding starts this Saturday, April 9th at 8:00 AM CDT. And bidding will remain open until Monday, April 18th at 5:00 PM CDT.

I decided to whip up some Thank You cards to donate. I really like how they came out. They have a rustic feel.

I'm donating a total of 6 cards that are blank inside. There are three blue cards & three cranberry cards, all of which have a variety of flower embellishments. They're perfect to keep around, just in case you need to send some thanks to a friend or family member!

The starting bid for my cards is $10, which is a steal! You'd spend a lot more in a greeting card store if you purchased 6 cards! Plus, by bidding on these cards, you'll be supporting a great cause. And I'm a big fan of supporting those in need!

For more details on this auction and how to participate, please click on the following link:

Thanks so much for your support! Happy bidding!

Music to My Ears!

My niece turned 14 last month and my sister-in-law wanted to surprise her with some personalized water bottles.

She told me that she loves music and her favorite colors are purple & blue. So I put on my creative little hat and made this design for her. She & her friends loved it! And, of course, this was a way to get them to drink water with their pizza & snacks while they had their sleepover! :)

Like this design? It's available at my etsy shop! Click here & enjoy the "music"!

Team Mom Celebrates T-Ball Opening Game!

I recently received a custom order request from a mom in Texas. Her little son joined t-ball and she is the Team Mom. He's on the Chicago Cubs and she really wanted to show her support. So she saw my water bottle labels and came up with a very cute & unique idea!

She told me she was going to empty the water from the bottles & put beads in the bottles. And, voilĂ ! She has some really cute noisemakers to show the Cubs some support!

I love, love, love this unique idea! Too bad I wasn't invited to the game... :)

Anyway, here are a couple of samples! Enjoy!
