Made on Monday----Meandering through All Things Handmade & Fabulous! 01/30

Wow!  Have our makers been busy this week!  We have a total of 52 brand new listings this week from 18 different designers!  That's crazy awesome!  

Because of the sheer amount of new listings, this week our featured list will be a 2-part series.  Check back in on Wednesday for the second half of all things handmade!  Today I will be featuring home decor & clothing and on Wednesday, I will have the biggest display of hair accessories & jewelry ever!

Let's start off with a pile of fantastic home decor items! 

I came across this absolutely fun snowman decoration by Simply the Glitter!  Perfect for home decor beyond Christmas and to brighten up your winter home.  It even comes with working lights!  Follow the link below to find all the great creations by Michele.

Now, if you are looking for some gorgeous paintings, look no further!  Debra Engelbrecht Paintings has 3 new listings up this week.  Look at that hummingbird one!  Swoon!!!  You can find all her paintings by clicking on the link below.

I think these memory pillows are the best idea ever!  Stitches by Laura has a new listing up featuring memory pillows made with your special t shirt.  She will work with you to  make a custom pillow (or tote bag) that is unique to you!  This listing is for a tee but I saw that she can also work with other types of shirts too so just ask if you have a special shirt that you would like made into a memory pillow!

The Day Before This Day makes some of the coolest vintage items I've seen.  This week, Michelle has some fun chenille heart shaped pillows.  They look so yummy--almost like heart shaped cakes!  Made with vintage chenille and even a hankie on one, these are too cool for words!

And then I ran across this adorable table runner by Cindy of Buttons 'N Bolts.  Perfect to decorate your home for Valentine's Day.  I personally have some products from Cindy and her work is amazing.  You won't be disappointed with this!  You can see all of her listings by clicking on the link below.

And once you are done decorating your home, maybe it is time to decorate yourself (or your child!)

First up are some fun listings by Heather of Bagladyami.  Crossover bags & super fun tee dresses too.  I personally love that adorable Stitch crossover bag!  Check out all her listings by following the link below.

Looking for a last minute Valentine's Day dress?  Here is a gorgeous little number by Ugly Duckling Originals

Designs by Danielle is at it again with this great Valentine shirt!  Custom made & ready to go within 7 days.  Still time to get it before Valentine's Day!

What do Llamas, Bunnies, and Grumpy Cat have in common?  Not much but they are all new designs by That's So Addie.  Follow the link to see all of the That's So Addie designs.

And there you have it!  I will be back on Wednesday with a whole new bunch of awesomeness.  As always, thank you for supporting small businesses.

Designer Day! Shops

It's FRIDAY! Do you know what that means? It's DESIGNER DAY!

That's right! EVERY Friday I will be featuring ONE shop from our marketplace and many of their glorious handmade goodies for you to peruse at your leisure!

Torrey Hill Inc

Torrey Hill Inc is an amazing shop that has been around selling online since the 90s! Located in North Carolina, the shop has handmade items for men,women and children using knitting, crochet and sometimes even jewelry as her medium of art! The shop received its name from the name of the street in Maine that her family comes from!

What else makes her unique? I consider her a "Green" Shop- meaning- she also upcycles items to use in new designs! How cool is THAT? She truly brings to life, "Everything Old Becomes New"


Torrey Hill Inc is a shop to keep your eye on in 2017!

Gifts for Family & Friends

In addition to shopping Torrey Hill Inc's Ready to Ship line- they also deal in custom items!
