Glitter Lollipops & Whimiscal Cupcakes

Hello friends!

I wanted to share with all of you some fun news! I am so happy to announce I have officially opened up a new shop on ArtFire! Of course I will always keep my Pinks & Needles shop on Etsy but I was too excited not to share the exciting news! My new shop frosted window on ArtFire is dedicated to Year Round Holiday shopping.

        Lollipop Ornaments in Progress - still need to add ribbon and a laminated tag that reads "Sweet!" to each pop!

I'm having this image made into glossy postcards and it will read "Happy Birthday!" down at the bottom in Pinks & Needles font!

 I'm thinking I would like to keep my pin toppers in their proper Pinks & Needles place but frosted window will offer an array of handmade items like all different styles of  faux dough cupcake & lollipop ornaments, felted cotton candy necklaces, postcards of my photography, prints of my original paintings & drawings ~ and gifts in general. I would love it if you popped on by to have a look when you get a chance!I should mention too that I will be listing 20 new pins in Pinks & Needles tomorrow morning (Thursday July 29th) ~ many of them brand new designs and some Halloween related!
I'm leaving for a wedding this Friday in Santa Barbara which I am thrilled about! it will be so nice to get out of the desert heat and into the refreshing ocean breeze!
Have a wonderful rest of your week everyone!

Vintage Vacation Swap

Hi everyone!
I have been wanting to post a few pics of what I sent my partner Jenn of Eye Candy Creations! Many of you probably already know her but in case you don't go check out her blog ~ she's got the cutest banner first of all and her style is so whimsical and fun!
My take on "vintage vacation" was a road trip! A little something from Georgia to represent Jenn, a few little things from California/Arizona to represent me and a little something from New Jersey to represent jenny who hosted the swap! I never seem to have any time anymore to swap so I made it a point to make time for this one!
I hope all of you are enjoying your Summer/Winter depending on where you live ~ I've been melting for months now and am ready for cool weather...ya right....not for a while still!

Pincushion Rings Coming Soon!

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone's Summer has started out with a bang! Mine sure has. It's like I'm a bear who hibernates in the Winter only it's the opposite seasons for me. Too hot for outside activity unless you get up at usually what I'm doing that early : )
Anyway, I just wanted to show you a fun bowlful of goodness coming to the shop really soon! I have hand felted cute little things and made them into pincushion rings. Each ring comes with it's own trio of tiny pin toppers! I'm hoping to have plenty of these made up for the holidays ~ perfect for gift giving or spoiling yourself!
Enjoy your day!
