Keepsakes Can Mean So Much

img_3530I love with all my heart all of my precious keepsakes given to me by special family members and fabulous friends. You know keepsakes do not have to be some costly gift to be special to you.

In my studio I have pieces of paper some with just scribbles of crayon or markers, many pictures of me drawn by some of my favorite little people.. Seeing them there makes me smile. I remember the nature of one of my gifts. My grandgirl was about 4 before she could write very well and she made me a Mothers Days card, with her mothers help, that says #G’ma you are a great women!” the best part was she said to her mother that will make G’ma laugh, she knew it would. It still cracks me up when I sew it!

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them some of the smaller ones more than the larger. I find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

I have a set of Christmas Ornaments given to me by one of my closest friends and they mean the world to me, and are one of my prized possessions. Every year when I get them out I smile and think of her and my life at the time she gave them to me. So heart warming!

I have a recent keepsake created and given to me by a sweet redhead of Lucy and Ethel, which represents her and I.

A charm bracelet from my mom and dad.

I think you get the point, but I could continue typing all day. Its not about the cost its about the love that goes into finding just the right item.

I definitely would love everyone to purchase from Glam Girls Pretties, there are many items there that make great keepsakes. But more than that, this holiday season I would love to see people really give heart felt meaningful gifts!

 

 

 

Bon Voyage

cruise shipI miss the cruise ships already!

I never thought I would miss going in to sell to tourists and cruise ship passengers so much. I am missing the social-ness of it.

Seriously I got to meet so many interesting people and got to know and become friends with some awesome artisans.

My new focus will be to concentrate on getting into some shops around the city and possibly elsewhere and of course my Etsy Shop!

 

My Customers, Sweet Words

I received this kind review and picture from one of my customers and just wanted to share it!

I only created the two round key chains, obviously they added them to their existing key rings.

Omg she’s amazing, she made them just to my specifications with our names on the back. And got them with great timing. Both my wife and I loved them. Thank you so much! Keep up the good work!

Cruise Ships on the Horizon

I am so excited to sit down by the bay selling my Maine creations. The cruise ships will be getting larger as we head into fall. On Sunday 8/28 a cruise ship with 5000 passengers, plus crew, will be docking at Ocean Gateway. How incredible that not only do I imageget to sell my Maine creations, I also get to meet so many people. I will be a happy smiling face that represents Maine, gotta do Maine and Portland proud! Besides I love being the unofficial welcoming committee!

It Makes My Heart Smile!

I received this message from one of my customers yesterday. To think something I made could be so meaningful, makes my heart smile that I am contributing in a small positive way.

Customer: Placed an order for Soulmates Necklaces with this message attached.

I have ordered these previously but unfortunately lost them when my house burned down in July. My man and I wore these everyday and I’m going to surprise him for his birthday with another one :) Thank you for making such unique and meaningful art :)

ME:

I am so sorry to hear about your fire. How touching that they meant that much to you both.

Customer:

Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. They meant so much and we were so bummed that they didn’t survive and I just haven’t had a chance to reorder them with all the madness! But thank you again so much for the beautiful jewelery! I can’t wait for them to arrive :)
