Hi, my name is Nicole. I make Midnight Pretty items in the Portland, Oregon area, where I am also a manager at a local non-profit. My background includes my Master’s in Public Health and my work with teens, elders, and diverse population.
I started designing and hand-making jewelry a few years ago as a way to show my love for friends and family. I am always learning and exploring techniques in crafting. Every piece I make has a story – some are made from upcycled materials and others are inspired by people and places that mean something to me. All come packaged in pretty wrapping for you!
Nicole is offering these beautiful green upcycled glass earrings on surgical steel earhooks. Simple and beautiful! Valued at $29.00!
This is a 13″ Platter Plate valued at $25.00. This unique one-of-a-kind plate, titled “Believe”, has been decoupaged with wonderfully heart-warming fabric depicting a family of snow people engaging in various memory-making activities. I’ve embellished this plate with a whimsical-style wooden heart stating “Believe”. Believe in the magic of the holidays, and the value of making great family memories year round, with this beautiful plate in your home. Perfect as a gift too!
Debi Wilson is the creator and dreamer behind Designs By Debilee. Currently residing in Atlanta with her husband, she is very excited to share her new venture and unique creations with you.
This is a matching necklace and earring set of light “seafoam” green sea glass created by Laura from Lacy Laura Gray. The sea glass has been in her private collection for many years. The earrings and necklace feature vintage aurora borealis crystals and glass pearls from a broken necklace she purchased in an antique shop in Apalachicola Florida. The earrings are suspended on sterling silver plated hooks and the necklace chain is a sparkling, petite ball chain that is 18 karat white gold plated. Reg. Price $44.00
Laura says, “It is important to me to design, quality, versatile pieces that are affordable for all because I believe the way a special object makes you feel when you wear it should not be attainable only by a privileged few. It should have the ability to transform you and how you feel by wearing it. A piece of jewelry shouldn’t only be beautiful and special… It should make you feel beautiful and special”.
I am Karen Pior and Sew Well Maide is my business name. I am passionate about all things fabric and textile, in particular patchwork quilts both modern and antique. I sell my designs, and sometimes completed products, through my Etsy store and am about to start selling through markets here in Australia – both exhilarating and terrifying!! I hang out on Ravelry and Flickr and I am known as Knitting Maide. I have recently ‘discovered’ the joy to be found in vintage fabrics and plan to incorporate them into many new designs.
Karen is offering a fully lined tote bag with inside and outside pockets made from a pillowcase (used for bag lining and inside pocket and outside pocket lining) and tablecloth (outside of bag, outside pockets and lining of inside pocket) found at a thrift shop. Size is 14.5″ x 14.5″ x 3″. Handles give 11″ of drop. Valued at $25.00
Tracey has offered a $40 gift certificate along with free shipping from her store, Fabric Doodles by Tracey Lipman.
Tracey’s shop offers handmade stylish and functional bags for all life stages. From baby bags to beyond my bags are handmade with attention to detail. Tracey says, “I work hard to create a product line where stylish can be practical too. The pockets are where you need them, the seams are enclosed so you can’t see them, a design that makes sense. Come see for yourself and put the FUN back into functional”.
Connie from Soap Rhapsody is offering a Christmas Soap Making Kit along with three wreath soaps. The kit has enough supplies to make between 6 and 10 bars of soap. Each mold will make a soap bar between 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 ounces (molds can be used multiple times). In the box you will receive: 4 basic shape soap molds (good for making 100s of soap bars), ½ pound of Clear Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap, ½ pound of White Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap, Red, Blue, Yellow and Green color chips, Freesia, Blueberry, Orange and Rose fragrance chips, Easy-to-Follow Instructions. Package valued at $25.00.
Connie says, “Some of my soap designs are whimsical, some reflect my love of Asian art and culture, some are simply graceful and beautiful. Every soap is made fresh when an order is placed. I gladly do custom labels or messages. I love doing group favors for weddings, bridal and baby showers, birthdays, holidays. All my soaps are made with a glycerin soap base with no detergents, no surfactants, no sulfates, no alcohol, no parabens and no sugar solutions. This glycerin soap is considered 100% real soap and vegan. It is made of pure vegetable oils (no animal testing or products)”.
