I still have a creative itch I need to scratch, so now I make much smaller items - potholders, coasters, and anything that makes me want to "make it"!

~HOW I NAMED MY SHOP~
One definition I found for Bon Bons is: "Bon Bons - Something that is pleasing in a light or frivolous way". Well, that fit my creations exactly! So you'll find a variety of things here.
