I hardly ever have time to really write on this here blog, but felt the need to share some cool finds just in time for Valentine’s Day. Handmade gifts are a welcome change from an emergency trip to the mall on your lunch hour ( hear this guys!) and you will be giving a gift that will really speak from the heart!
Jewelry is always a popular option and you can’t go wrong with this fantastic heart necklace from BluKatDesign on Etsy. I love the texture and color of this one!
Maybe she loves to be pampered; a fun gift would be some hand made soap from the talented SunbasilGarden; they look good enough to eat!
Scarves are always a hit and one size fits all. ForgottenCotton is my fave place for handmade, quality scarves. I am loving this pink!
Keep mom in mind this Valentine’s Day too! She would love a ring or rings with the kiddos names and her anniversary date on them. You can find these in my shop, beadsoul,on Etsy.
If I have a moment, I hope to share more handmade gifts for Valentine’s Day here soon!
A little something I conjured up in between filling custom orders, going on 3 retreats and charging through a full, crazy and demanding but fulfilling life!
Maybe you are like me and have no clue what to give Mom for Mother’s Day; I thought I would show you some fun finds for all types of Moms. I trolled through some of my favorite Etsy shops and wanted to show you what I found.
For the trendy Mom: What Mom wouldn’t love some new earrings for Mother’s Day? I know that a pair like these from BluKatDesign would be a welcome addition to the jewelry wardrobe of a fashionable Mom who loves to stay on-trend. Emerald Green is Pantone’s color of the year after all!

Upcycled wood hanger from reclaimed wood by The Wooden Bee on Etsy
I do say that the Eco-Mom, the Mom who is always upcycling, recycling and looking for new ways to use things would love this reclaimed wood hanger from TheWoodenBee what a fun way to deck out your room and be earth conscious!
Do you have a crafty Mom who knits or crochets? I bet she would love this fabulous, handspun yarn from Stockannette. Annette makes lovely yarns in many wonderful colors. I happen to love this orange and blue skein titled “Delicate Arch. Fabulous!
A great yarn for the crafty Mom from Stockannette
Maybe you have a Mom who just loves being a Mom; she loves to show off her delightful offspring whenever she can. Perhaps a piece of jewelry like a custom pendant hand stamped with all the kiddos names would do the trick!
A personal gift for Mom; a pendant hand stamped with all the names of the kids or grand kids.
I hope you found some fun ways you can spoil your sweet Mom this Mother’s Day!
This little pendant necklace was created for a little girl’s 7th birthday. Her sweet BFF commissioned it with a little help from her mom 🙂
I love doing custom pieces like this. It is especially fun when I am allowed free reign, like this particular repeat customer give me 🙂
Midi or knuckle rings are now available in my Etsy shop. They are cute and fun and very on trend right now.
I know that the Pantone Spring 2013 colors have been out for a while now, but the talk is still buzzing over the color of the year, Emerald. I have noticed it in many places, even my trip to Target tonight provided me with a pop of emerald!
One of my fave Etsy shops, BluKatDesign, has hit the emerald green just right with these earrings.
I had to try my hand at emerald green too and came up with this bracelet using green aventurine and some hand-forged chain and findings. I think I need to make some earrings to match!
What do you think of the colors Pantone is trending for Spring? I think they are fun and bright and hope to produce more pieces with these colors.
