Designer Crafts Connection Monday - Handmade Gifts

Happy Monday and welcome to the Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop!  If you haven't been on the hop before, just click on the blue DCC button to go ahead or back.  Handmade gifts are the featured theme today!

I have accumulated a lot of craft supplies over the years.  A particular favorite of mine is paint.  Well, paint and wood!  I work in different mediums, but like to get back to painting whenever I can.

As a sideline and for fun, I have a small booth in a vintage store in my town.  I call my space "the Cube" as I have a small area, front and back that is in the middle of the floor.  I have been able to use up a lot of supplies creating gift and home decor items.  I am attaching some photos from my space.  There are a plethora handmade items that can be given as gifts.  Thanks for coming by!

The sign above my booth is actually a clock!  It was made to put pictures around the perimeter of the circle.  I had it on a shelf for several years, thinking that someday I would have a use for it.  I removed all of the glass and painted each square so that I could put letters on the clock.  I cut vinyl letters with the Cricut machine and adhered them to the square spaces.  The clock even works!  I think it made a fun sign!

Have a great Monday!  Hope you enjoy the hop!

Live Life with a Flourish,



  1. Your booth looks great! I hope you sell lots!

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I hope so too! When we are avid "creators", we do need a place to pass our creations on, don't we? :-)

  2. So much gorgeousness all in one place, I would love to have a look around your oh so pretty blog.

    1. Thank you, Sue! Sounds like you are a kindred spirit. Thanks for stopping by!
