Are you trick-or-treating at my house?

Wouldn't it be great if we didn't hand out candy this year and instead handed out little handmade gifts?

That would be awesome.


This was my contribution to the B.E.S.T. Halloween Zombie Award Challenge!

Go vote & leave a message on the blog post over on the B.E.S.T. blog for your chance to win a surprise!

Pearl Jane

I've opened a new Etsy shop!!

My sister-in-law Kacie and I have put our ideas and skills together to create some very elegant clothing and accessories. 

We'd love a few sales so please spread the word for us! And thank you in advance for taking a look through our shop!

I made this ruffle scarf that I'm wearing above! So cute!
I'm working on a black ruffle scarf which will be listed in our shop soon!

This is Kacie modeling the white dress she made and the tabarde in red.
She designed that tabarde all by herself and it's amazing! I just gave her encouraging words, she did it all!
Check out these items and others in our shop!

I just realized that I teach a class on Saturday! It's at the Central Utah Art Center and I'll be teaching how to make a clam shell box and we'll learn techniques on making other boxes as well.

The class is $30 and that includes all the materials for your box (I'll precut all the book board for you so we'll focus on other things instead of spending the few hours cutting.)

The class is from 10am - 1pm on Saturday, October 16th at the Central Utah Art Center in Ephraim, UT. 

I'm sorry I don't have a photo of a clamshell box. I'll just have to post photos of the ones we make in class :)
