Right after Halloween, I dove right into creating things for the holidays.
This is the third year I will be participating in a holiday event at my children's elementary school.
I set up a booth and for 3 days my main customers are children from age 5 - 12 looking to purchase gifts for family and friends. I absolutely love this event, getting to interact with children all day long. It is so much fun for me to try and think like a 'kid' and produce products that the kids may enjoy gifting.
Here are a few things I've been working on...
Arrow- hand embroidered bracelets in array of colors! 

Felt hair clips - inspired by rudolph's red nose. 

Scandinavian folk print magnets- using recycled paper

Miniature notebooks - handmade with origami cover

Monogrammed felt keychains- a bit of plush for backpacks etc. 

Leather tie tacks - recycled genuine leather, hand painted.  

handmade boxes / packaging 

woodland ornaments - hand inked, glittered, and sewed.

hand lettering awesomeness!

I just discovered this artist last night while looking around on Pinterest.
I am in love with his fun hand lettering but also his ability to find the coolest sayings TO hand letter.
I just think he's got the right idea about life! I am a fan from this day forward.
Visit Jay Roeder to see more of his amazing work.
