Gearing up for the Holidays!! Pass the Eggnog

Just a quick post to share what I’ve been up to. First of all my Glam Girls Pretties shop is still open on Etsy.

But I have created a second business called Maine Girl Inspired creating Maine Inspired Jewelry and keepsakes. My bestie created a logo for my business after I messaged her a rough idea of what I was looking for. This is what she created for me. small-maine-girlI am so excited for my Maine inspired hand stamped and other creations to take off. My plan is to get my creations into as many shop around the state as I can, as well as hitting the bay next summer, as well.

I am excited to say I am in my first shop. Creative Artisans of Maine, They are having a huge open house today and tomorrow. So many unique creations.maine-inspired1maine-inspired2maine-inspired-4

I am so honored to be in a shop with so many artisans from around our state. What a lot of talented people. I went to my first meet and greet last evening and it was great.

I have 4 craft shows, I am doing 2 Nov 26 Kennebunk Christmas Prelude, Nov 27 Portland Yacht Club, Dec 3 and 4th at Pine and Spruce, and Cheverus.

Add in my glam girl orders and I am going to be one busy girl for the next few months!

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!

 

A Sweet Message

I received this message after I had sent her a confirmation of her order! It’s these small moments we need to celebrate, to smile and delight in them. I wrote her back letting her know that I was thrilled to have a small part in her story.

 

Sunday, Sunday

What a fab day selling my pretties down by the sea shore!

First Friday Art Walk

SOOOOOO Excited! I am thrilled to be going to the Art Walk in Portland tonight and even more thrilled to be taking my fabulous grandgirl with me.

I can’t remember ever taking her before, we have gone to the children’s museum but not the art walk itself. Kaitlyn has grown to be quite an artist herself, so I know she will love it! We’re having a slumber party tonight!

 

Amazing

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!

If you are out and about come see me!
