We have some really talented women in the sisterhood. Just for fun today, here are a few of my favorite (affordable) handmade goodies:
WREATHS by Kristy Woodall (Albuquerque, NM)
They’re not just for the front door. Kristy’s wreaths are pretty and stylish. I have a springtime one hanging in my dining room now. The lavender, jade, and cream colors add new life to our home. Check out her beautiful creations for yourself (or someone else):
CARDS by Joyce Gillaspie (Albuquerque, NM)
A handwritten note beats a text or email any day. These cards can only be described as gorgeous. Each one has unique details, harmonious colors, and a thoughtful message. I personally love her lighthouse series. Whether you want to thank a friend or let someone know you’re thinking of them, these pretty cards are the way to go. They will give you as much pleasure as the one who receives them.
JEWELRY by Amy Clevenger (Greeneville, TN)
Essential oil users, you’re going to love this. Amy makes necklaces and earrings for diffusing your favorite oils. The jewelry holds little felt balls (in your choice of neutral colors). My necklace arrived early this week. I placed a couple of drops of soothing lavender on the felt ball and wore the necklace all day. Even my sons enjoyed the scent. They joked, “People will always feel good when they’re around you!”
MONOGRAMS by Erin Moore (San Marcos, TX)
From handbags and baby bibs to mugs and aprons, Erin can personalize just about anything for you. Her work is fun and fresh. Anyone would enjoy receiving a special gift from her shop. I have a personalized key chain in a cheerful periwinkle blue that goes with me everywhere and makes me smile.
ART by Amanda Hilburn (Nesbit, MS)
Country fresh and sweet describe Amanda’s paintings. She uses water colors, acrylics, and mixed media. I’m trying to decide between two of them for my office (see pics below). If you are drawn to mason jars, and agree that “Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat” (Laura Ingalls Wilder), you’ll be enchanted by Amanda’s work.
I think both of those would look charming in my office, don’t you?
Next time you need to buy a gift or would like to bring some beauty into your home, these lovely Christian ladies would love to have your support!
(I don’t get anything for sharing these links, monetary or otherwise. I just think they’re grand!)
