This rinestone tiara was really fun to decorate! I used vintage flowers from an old hat and gems that I found at an antique store in town.

Another creation from my mom. This one is made from lace that is over 100 years old, scarf clip and mask are made with vintage gems and felted wool.

Halloween is coming! My mom made this mask and cape out of antique lace and vintage gems.

Bride cone hat, I made this one a little narrow so it'e not ready to wear, but perfect for a center piece. I'm having a Halloween Cone hat workshop at the shop on OCt 11th if anyone would like to join us!

Birthday Girl


This is the cake topper I made for Addison's first birthday. what a cutie!

We went up to uncle Mikeys over the weekend, Addison had a blast playing with the rocks and kicking her feet in the pool.

This is a photo from our trip to the San Fransico gift show. My mom and I had a booth and shared our handmade items with other shops. It was a blast and we meet so many wonderful creative women!

Lots of glitter in the shop these days! I've been busy making new tiaras and banners.

This is a photo from an AWESOME powder day in Utah. This brought back memories of the good old powder days in the late 90's. I saw this untouched wave of snow from the helicopter so I claimed it and got first dibs! THe snow in Utah is so light and fluffy once you make a turn the snow just floats around in the sky and makes sundogs. I think I might need a powder day this winter!

Happy Birthday box

I love my baby Girl!!!! Here's a photo of Addie and I at my shop.


Everyone needs a Tiara!
