Channeling Martha...

It's no big secret that Martha Stewart is amazing...and if you haven't played with her product line (Available at Micheals Craft Store) you're missing out!  The brilliantly crafty folks over at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia can totally rock a holiday like Halloween...but with their products so can you!  Think outside of the box and be creative.  I'm making these halloween happy hour flasks as favors for our halloween party this year.  A mix of Martha Stewart papers, glitter, borders and jewels make these super festive and totally fun.  Hope my guests like them!


Guy Time

My husband never really asks for much when it comes to my crafting.  So when he said  "can't you make something retro cool without any flowery crap all over it"...I knew I had a challenge.  Trying to fit some guy style into my line that's dedicated to bringing out the retro glam in the everyday girl, well it took me a minute to digest.

Then I realized most of my glam girls have dapper I'm working on a retro collection for those guys!

Why not have a little man chic right?

My dad loves the money clips...

And the guys at my hubby's work love the flasks.

Hopefully my man is happy now :)
