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!

 

 

 

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.

 

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!

Special gift from Bride

Custom order I created for a bride to give her mom!

Ahoy Matey

imageimageimagecruise shipI am excited however a bit overwhelmed with a big decision/ commitment I have made to make and sell hand stamped Maine jewelry, and key chains, and even more exciting my target customers being cruise ship passengers. Portland, Maine’s Casco Bay will welcome 79 cruise ships this summer. Obviously it will be a big commitment and my Etsy shop orders will always come first! But, I have to say I am a bit proud of the designs I have come up with, I have created little Maine scenes just using stamps I have and a few I created, adding a few specialty stamps here and there. They are custom designed and created by me, so they are very unique, anyone who has seen them, loves them!

 

Perfect gift for your Ring Bearer

badge Recently someone asked me about a gift for their ring bearer. I hadn’t realized I did not have any items for a ring bearer in my shop. So I have now listed a few I created. My fav, by far is this Ring Security Badge, hand stamped on a 1 3/4 ” star, with the little guys name, it has a brooch pin on the backside so he could wear it or it could be attached to a pillow or other item he will carry. Great for a rustic country wedding.

I also created these two ring bearer backpack charms, on 1″ x 2″ dog tags, one says the same thing as the badge and had a star charm attached. The other one says the ring bearer’s name and Keeper of Our Keys. Anyone of these would make the perfect gift for your Ring Bearer!
