This Week's Blog Post

Eyeglass Chains

Eyeglass chains have been selling like crazy this past week! Every night I have been making 2 or 3 of them to keep from falling too far behind. These were posted last night to Miss Val's Creations.
For my nieces and nephew for Easter I got these gorgeous handmade journals from Blue Toad on Etsy. These feature original artwork on canvas and they are hand-bound such a beautiful way!
I made bookmarks to compliment each one.

I am partial towards the Bucket List journals!

These pocket sized journals are great to carry around in your handbag!

The artwork on this Nested Thoughts journal is so stunning!
Stop by Blue Toad on Etsy or their sister site Tremundo for a full selection of these journals. They made a perfect gift!
Easter Cards
These super cute cards are from Being A Creative Mom on Etsy. Each egg opens to show 3 adorable chicks!
Beside super cute cards like these she also create banners.
And adorable hair accessories!
And coffee cup cozies! Stop by Being a Creative Mom's Etsy shop for a variety of great items. 
Pinterest Pin
This was my favorite re-pin this week on Pinterest. So adorable!
Janice of Bikbik and Roro is having a giveaway of 100 free postcards from PrintRunner. A great way to promote your business! Stop by her blog to find out how to enter!
Fort For Mr. Emmett
Jim made Emmett a fort! He was loving it!!!! I think he thought no one could see him.
Of course when I took that picture, Miss Alice the glamour girl that she is, wanted me to snap a shot of her as well. Got to love the scary eyes the flash produces. My camera probably has a pet eye feature but I do not feel like reading the manual.
Have a great week everyone! ~Val
