Gee, Crafting Gets Sentimental

8 Sep








I am a big believer in combining quotes and crafts. It really is a beautiful thing. Whenever a loved one has a birthday, I turn to crafting to present them with a personal and unique gift.

I decided to collage a little plaque just for one of my best friends for her recent birthday. She was my first college roommate, and we clicked from the moment we met. Although we have scattered to different dwellings, we are still extremely close.

In my search for a good quotation to use for her birthday plaque, I stumbled upon the line, “Come Live In My Heart And Pay No Rent.” A perfect fit.

The fun part about crafting a gift is that you can mold it to fit the recipient in a way that a gift card simply can’t. My gifting tip: think outside the box, and make a gift that comes from within.



Gee, Pig Perfection!

19 Aug

When my sister chose to have me as her only bridesmaid for her wedding (which took place last week), she knew she was signing on for unconventional.  So it was only fitting when she gave me the ultimate bridesmaid’s gift in my bundle of favors: a beautiful copy of Bob Elsdale‘s “Pretty In Pink: Why It’s Good To Be A Girl!”  It is essentially the most incredible collection of piggy images and inspirational messages that I have ever come across.

First of all, I must give you a little bit of background information.  I absolutely adore pigs.  Ever since I was a little girl, they have been my number one favorite animal.  Hands down.  Over the years, I have acquired quite the collection of stuffed piggies, rubber piggies, piggy blankets, piggy shirts…etc.  So this newest literary addition absolutely captures my heart and soul.

The book not only celebrates pigs, but also shopping and friendship and enjoying life.  Could it possibly get any better?!  You, reader, might say yes, it could.  But for me, I have found my happy book.  I hope it at least brings a smile to your face.
