Healthy Holiday Bazaar 2011

Today I was a vendor at the Healthy Holiday Bazaar in my town.  The event was coordinated by a health coach named Vicki Lewis.  It was held at the Carriage Lane Inn reception house.  One of the old homes just off the main square.  I love these historic homes, they have so much character!  I have a few photos of the house, and just a few of the vendors, plus my table.  There were several more vendors, I just didn't get a chance to get photos of them.  It was great to meet some other local vendors and folks from our community.  A great way to network and to really get that small town feel.

Delicious baked goods! Her stuff is amazing!

Yummy teas!

All natural, handmade skin care. It was so nice!

Me and my goodies.

A closer shot of my jewelry.  See those cuff bracelets in the front?  I just made them and will be listing them in my shop soon!

A sweet 13 birthday party

I had a special order from my friend Rachel to make these cute initial rings as party favors for her daughter's 13th birthday party.  She had already been telling me of their decoration plans weeks before the party, so I knew I needed to come over and take some photos of it so I could do a blog post.

Rachel made the tissue paper pom-pom's herself, I love how they turned out!

As you can tell, the colors her daughter chose were yellow and gray, and the table setting was just so sweet and pretty!

The rings were packaged in sweet little yellow boxes wrapped in silver ribbon with their names on them.

The yummy food!  I wanted to stay and eat some myself! :)  They also had a picture frame that each guest could sign.  Later she will put a party photo inside the frame.

The beautiful cake made by a local bakery here in town.

And the girls rings on their fingers.  I just love it!  What a great party for any 13 year old girl!

The Strawberry Patch giveaway!!

**This giveaway is now closed.**

Today's giveaway is from Christy at The Strawberry Patch.  If you've been following my blog or Facebook page for a while, then you've read my posts and have seen my photos from her awesome barn sales!  Christy is as sweet as they come here in the South.  Everything from her cute little accent to her Southern hospitality.  She is amazingly talented and creative, I just love all her work.  Here is a bit about her and her giveaway:

"This is the plan he has made for me".....I am a mom to three children, and I was born to create--I love using my hands and the gifts God has given me. I take no credit for my talent, for I was not the inventor. My heart is huge, my dreams are big, and my ideas are limitless. I began the Strawberry Patch as an outlet for my creativity in hopes of establishing lifelong relationships with other creative people, but also to give the people in my community a place to find unique, handmade and vintage goods. Currently, I have two shows: Spring and Fall but I hope to do a Christmas show in 2011. This is a story about me, my life, and His plans for me.

Christy is giving away this sweet pillow!  I already have 2 of her pillows in my home, so I wish I could enter this giveaway myself! :)

To enter leave a comment telling me where you would put this pillow.

I will draw the winner tomorrow!  Share this giveaway with your friends!

    Horsefeathers Gifts giveaway!!

    **This giveaway is now closed.**

    Today's giveaway is by a very talented mother and daughter team.  Chelsea Farmer and her mother Tammy Asher are the creative forces behind Horsefeathers Gifts.  I first met Chelsea online via Facebook earlier this spring.  They made the drive from Kentucky down here to Tennessee for The Strawberry Patch barn sale.  I did not get to see them there, but they blogged about it and we started communicating online.  At that time they had a store front in Kentucky and they started selling my jewelry there.  But this summer they decided to close their store front and just focus on craft shows on their online shops. Which they are doing very well with I might add!  Here is a bit about them and their giveaway:

    Chelsea Farmer

    I am a slight hippie at heart.  I am obsessed with peace signs, animals & beads.  I studied at the Gemological Institute of America and I am always trying new ways of creating jewelry. I am not interested in creating "trendy" pieces; I am only interested in creating one- of- a -kind pieces that stand out in a crowd. Thanks to my wonderful husband I have been able to open my first store & I LOVE every stressful minute of it.  I love making things and I am constantly taking on more than the average person could handle, but thanks to redbull I can accomplish it all. 

    Tammy Asher
    In my world there is no such thing as junk.  I have been searching for and collecting what most people would throw away for about 20 years now. I love creating one-of-a-kind furniture, whimsical jewelry, and unique metal sculptures with everyday items found at your local flea market, backyard or barn. I’m an expert at turning junk into treasure. I studied metal sculpting at MCC in Omaha, NE.   I prefer jeans, t-shirts and cowboy boots over any other attire. I have a passion for horses and can’t go anywhere without my bubba keg full of green tea:) My goal is to help people create their own style one piece of junk at a time.

    Horsefeathers Gifts is giving away a $25 shop credit to their Etsy shop!

    To enter leave a comment telling me what you would spend the $25 shop credit on. Visit the shop HERE to see their goodies.

    Livi Lou & Co. giveaway!!

    **This giveaway is now closed. **

    Today's giveaway is from my friend Mary Jo at Livi Lou & Co.  I met Mary Jo online several years ago through a Christian mother's group.  So we've known each other for a while now, but we have yet to meet in person.  Maybe someday though!  Here is a bit about Livi Lou & Co. and Mary Jo's giveaway:

    I have a slight addiction to fabric, which is why I opened my shop, to fund my habit and have an excuse to use all that fabric. I live in the UK with my husband who is in the US Air Force and two children Olivia (the Livi behind Livi Lou & Co.) and Erik.  I love my little business which allows me to stay home with my little ones and have the flexibility to travel when my husband has time off.  The added bonus is that I can take it with me when the Air Force sends us to new locations.  When I'm not creating I spend time volunteering in our community, spending quality time with the family, and reading the occasional blog.

    Mary Jo is giving away a $25 shop credit that can be used at either of her two shops. Etsy shop or Hyena Cart

    To enter simply leave a comment telling me why you would like to win this giveaway.
