Announcement   Welcome!! Thank you for stopping by my shop today ---
I am having a GREAT sale!! 40% off any order - with a minimum purchase of $5.00...

It is with great sadness that I may need to be closing my shop soon...

Our government has decided to overwhelm small business owners, like myself, by making it just about impossible to tackle the administrative tasks of setting up and charging state sales tax for every online sale to purchasers in every state across the U.S.

There are only 2 states, where Etsy actually handles this process for us. Otherwise, it is up to each shop owner to handle this for ourselves. I am one person. I cannot possibly handle this tremendous task - just to get this concept set up for my shop! (my state, alone, has 963 zip codes - each with their own city tax rate, in addition to their county's tax rate, PLUS our main MN sales tax rate!)

I hope you enjoy what you find here, and please know that when you add a few items to your shopping cart, I will try to keep the postage as low as I possibly can...

If you choose to place an order, please know that I will refund any overages in your shipping costs.

If you see something you like, and need more than the quantity listed as you shop, please contact me so I can check my inventory. My vendors are great to work with, so I'm sure we can make an order work out just right for you! :)

If you find that you are interested in purchasing my zipper pulls/dangle charms, pendants or earrings, please read my "SMALL PARTS" message carefully, in each listing. I do not recommend any of my zipper pulls/dangle charms or earrings for any person age 12 years old or under - for obvious safety reasons. You, as the purchaser, would assume all risk and responsibility for how you intend to use each item. I advise parental consent, with each of those items in my shop.

Again, thank you for stopping by my shop today! I hope you enjoy what you find here!

I have met so many wonderful people and have loved hearing your stories, about how you will share the items that you have found in my shop!

It will take a miracle, for our government to make this workable and right for us small business owners who love what we do each day... Sharing our designs and special products is a real honor and privilege that I hope can continue, for years to come!

Take care, and may God bless...

About

Creating smiles, at just the right moment, can be wonderful!

I began creating my note cards in a much more serious way, about seven years ago...

I have always enjoyed creating cards for the people in my life that I care about and treasure the most... and I saw first-hand what one of those cards meant to someone that I had not seen or talked with, in over 35 years!

Several years ago, I reconnected with my very first boyfriend - back from when we were 13 years old!

After high school, our lives took very different paths, and I hadn't seen him in many many years! He has struggled and had a very hard many years since then.

We met one time, and I decided to make him a Christmas card that year. From there, we ended up spending several holidays together, in that next year. And what I learned, after about eight months time, was that he saved that Christmas card, and kept it very near to him...

It showed me, that when we put our hearts and our creativity into creating something special for another person, something like the message in a card can have a very real and lasting affect on those we love and care about.

I decided to make my note cards with very fun hand-stamped and hand-colored designs, but to leave the insides of them blank, so each person can write his or her own special message to the recipient... words that can touch the person each card is given to...

We all need special cards, filled with loving messages. Each card touches each person, in just the right moments... Cards, that a person like myself will save, because it touched me and my life, in just a right moment...

I create other items, such as "treat jars", to give with a special treat tucked inside, for just the same reasons... Often times, homemade chocolate chip cookies can work wonders, with a tall glass of cold milk! :)

I also enjoy sharing supplies that I have found, for my card making too! Different parts of the country sell so many different types of paper-crafting supplies, so it's fun to put the items that I have found, and often use, in my shop for others to use, too!

A small way, in life, to touch other people and their lives... to create a smile and a warm feeling, when someone we love needs it most! :)

I believe in our society today, we all need reasons to smile, and to let love touch our lives and our hearts... It all begins with a smile, when someone remembers us, and reaches out...

Production partners

  • Andie Atkinson

    Andie had a shop here on Etsy for quite some time. Unfortunately, she has now closed her shop... She created these fabric envelopes to sell with her beautiful note cards - as a set. She offered me the option to do the same, so I purchased fabrics that I wanted to use...

  • Angela - ButtonandBowSupplies

    Angela is the creator of these magnets that I use for my zipper pulls. I purchase them from her Etsy shop, and then glue them into my bezel trays, to create my zipper pulls. As far asl I know, she is the creator of the original magnet buttons.

  • Kim and Dana, from TheDaisyBoxGirls, here on Etsy

    Wichita Falls, TX

    Kim and Dana sell a few different styles of handmade pouches in their shop. We have collaborated on their design styles, so that I am able to have them in my Etsy shop as well, to go along with my many kinds of zipper pulls, which work well with their items/zippers.

  • Laurie Furnell of LaurieFurnellDesigns - Etsy

    I purchased a set of digital Valentine designs from Laurie's shop, here on Etsy. I print the colored designs out on white paper, and then create my gift enclosure cards and note cards for my Etsy shop and my local craft shows.

  • Maggie - from images4you, here on Etsy

    United States

    I have been working with Maggie, from "images4you", here on Etsy. I am new to creating pendants, using bezel trays and cabochons, so she has been so patient with me, answering my questions regarding digital image sizings etc... She offers many sizings of her beautiful designs!
