Giveaway: SewArtsy Hair Clippy Caddy from Sew Artsy


SewArtsy Hair Clippy Caddy from Sew Artsy

Isn't this a neat idea? And so pretty, too! I could think of a gazillion uses for them and we all could use at least one, and I bet teenage girls could fill up a couple of these in no time! So cute!






Description of the item:


This hanging clip holder is an absolute necessity if you use hair clips, barrettes and pony tail elastics at any time. My Clippy Caddy measures 17" long by 4" wide which gives you plenty of length for attaching your hair clips, and features 3 pockets (each 3" tall) for stashing your barrettes, bobby pins and pony tail holders. This little beauty can organize just about any hair accessory you own.


You'll notice in the second photo my personal caddy is holding several pairs of bobby pins and clips, and the pockets are holding gem twisties, my Heather Bailey Trash Ties in both lengths, barrettes, pony tail elastics, a head band, and even a pair of combs - and it has room to hold so much more!


Hangs easily on a nail, hook, hanger, bedpost or doorknob!


Other great uses: in your office - holds binder clips, paper clips, rubber bands, and extra staples; in your laundry room - holds clothes pins and small stain sticks or wipes; in your pantry - holds coupons, memo pads, small pencils; in your craft room - holds quilt clips and small sewing supplies. You'll find lots of uses! ARV: $9.95

Bio/Shop Bio:



SewArtsy Custom Handmade Handbags & Fashion Accessories I'm Amy, and I have a passion for fashion, fabric and color! These passions developed the creation of my home-based business designing and sewing original, handmade, custom-made handbags and accessories, called SewArtsy. I love designs that are clean and classy, yet aren't the everyday bags you'll find everywhere-in fact, you'll probably never see the same SewArtsy bag made twice.



I've always called northern Virginia "home", and have forever had an interest in art-taking art classes during high school, and in college, where I earned a B.A. in Art History. I love art, and see fabric as canvas that can be pieced together! I want my bags to be noticed, but for the wearer to be comfortable using them. I love pretty, sassy, bold, beautiful fabrics, but also know that a woman wants her bag to be functional and simple to use.



I am also the mom of two beautiful little boys and a baby girl who have joined our family by way of adoption. Adoption is something very close to my heart, and if you'd like to help me support adoption, and those men and women facing a crisis-pregnancy, please check out my baby items and Hair Clippy Caddies! You can find Hair Clippy Caddies here at SewArtsy.Etsy.com, and you'll find more Hair Clippy Caddies and baby items at SewArtsyBethany.Etsy.com .



I have a website, so please drop by SewArtsy.com to see part of my portfolio or see where I'm showing locally. If you have questions for me, please email me at amy@sewartsy.com. Check out different items I've made at http://www.sewartsyblog.blogspot.com/



I would be happy to work with you one-on-one for a custom order - just convo me!

Giveaway: Oh So Pretty Custom Made Clipboard from Lissalaneous

Custom Made Clipboard from Lissalaneous



Aren't these fab??? I heart them so much!!! I was telling Melissa that I wish she had been around when my oldest son was little because there was a time when all he wanted in the world was a clipboard...and me, being (anal) me...I wanted to get him a cute, kid-themed one...but do you think I could find one then? Nope! This was long before Etsy (he's 14 now)...so I had to get him an ugly old brown one from the office supply store (yawn!)...I think I might have Melissa make one of these for my youngest son now...he's 4. I asked my oldest if he wanted one and he kind of gave me that, "C'mon, Mom!" look ;)



But anyway...on to the prettiest clipboards you will ever see...












Description:


Design a clipboard with a name, saying, or just a striking pattern! Melissa will work with you to create a clipboard designed to suit your unique taste.


Custom clipboards are painted and embellished with high quality papers, decals, or words. Want a clipboard with trains for your little boy? No problem! Need one for a fussy sister? There are lots of patterns to choose from!


Visit http://lissalaneous.shutterfly.com/ to get inspired!


ARV: $10


Bio:


Melissa says, "I love things that are both functional and frivolous at the same time. The items I make serve a real purpose, but they also have a handmade touch and an element of uniqueness. I don't think anyone should have to settle for ready-made just because of money or time, and I know that nurseries, parties, and gifts can look expensive without costing a fortune!"


Melissa is a stay-at-home mom, former teacher, and a certified financial counselor. She recently moved to Nashville, TN so her husband could work for financial expert, Dave Ramsey.


"Lissalaneous" is a combination of Melissa's family nickname, Lissa, and the word miscellaneous.


You can also read & subscribe to Melissa's blog, Jim and Lissa, here.



To enter to win your own fabulous, custom-made clipboard, visit Lissalaneous Etsy Shop. Come back and tell me what your favorite design is for a clipboard. And additionally, if you have a suggestion for a design pattern, theme or colors for a clipboard, please also note that in your comment because Lissa wants to know what YOU want, she's listening!
