More fun Christmas Gifts!!!

I have a Little Elf working for me now...Mama Becky! Hehehe! She's been so busy helping me get a few things ready to sell for Christmas gifts. Below are a sampling of the Mama Becky line of Hartley Handcrafted.

I have 6 Post-It Note Holders that sell for $7 and include a matching pen. They make great teacher gifts, etc. What you see here is what I have on hand. Mama Becky will gladly take orders if we need more!

Mama Becky has also been busy making Gift Card Holders. The ribbon on each card slides off and opens up like the card on the far bottom right. The gift card slides into the little envelope inside. These sell for $1.50. I have about 15 of them..most of what you see here.

Here's a close up of a few...aren't they pretty???

Mmmmmm...chocolate., My favorite. Mama Becky has about 15 of these left to sell for $2.50 each. The big Hershey bar is included.

Pull the ribbon up, and out Mr. Hershey comes!

All these items make wonderful teacher gifts, Secret Santa gifts, Stocking Stuffers, etc....

If I run out of the items listed above, Mama Becky will gladly take orders for more fun stuff! They live out of town so there might be a small shipping fee if we are not going to their house or they are not going here.
Give a big Hartley Holler if you'd like to purchase any of these items. I'll likely have The Loft open soon if you'd like to stop by. Today was a big Craft Bazaar at a local church and The Loft items are still packed away in tubs!
Hope to see you soon!

Nugget Tins and more for Christmas!!!

This year I am making Nugget Tins for Christmas gifts. These hold 12 Hershey nuggets, each decorated to match the tin. Tins sell for $6 each and make wonderful Stocking Stuffers, gifts for Secret Santa's, Teachers, Bus Drivers, Music Lesson Teachers, Daycare providers, etc.

I also have lots of cards for sale so if you'd like a misc. box of 8-10 cards as a gift to give, I can work those up for you, too. Just let me know what you'd like inside....b-day cards, thank yous, sympathy, baby, welcome, etc! Cards run between $2.25-$2.50 each for these boxes.

Other gift ideas are listed in my Labels section on the blog.....down to the right. Just click on any topic and some idea will come up....coasters, tins, Christmas, monogramed stationary folders,etc......

Respond to this post, or call or e-mail if you are local.

Merry Christmassssssss............

Special Blessings!

I think this is one of my new favorite SU sets....Special Blessings. It's on page 50 of the SU catalog and comes with a cross, a dove and the words May God bless you......on your Special day...on your Wedding you start your Married Life...on your First Communion...on your Baptism day. I made this for my Wedding stach.

I used Cameo Coral for the main image and used the Petals-a- Plenty SU embossing folder on Shimery White. It really sparkles IRL.

Baby Tin for Elizabeth!

I made this tin and 12 Thank You cards for my friend, Elizabeth, who is having a baby in about 6 weeks or so. They have waited and waited for this baby and have Dreamt about having another baby (their 3rd) for about 6 years. I had to put the words 'Dream' on their little one's tin. I hope this baby has lots of dreams in life and will succeed in everything he or she does. It is for sure already loved by many!

Christmas Smorga-Something!

So...if you know me you know I can't spell worth a hoot...and had trouble spelling smorgasbord in the title of this post. I's really not that hard of a word...Smor--which I love to eat over the open fire with choco and warm toasty mallows. Gas--well, we all use it or pass it, right?? Bord--wish I was bored more often but I keep pretty busy and don't have time to get bored...smorgasbord...did I get it??? Shew!!

You will have the opportunity to join me for a card smorgasbord on Thursday, November 19th. We will meet at 7 at my house. You will relish in dipping your fingers into the ink to taste 4 different cards, making a total of 10 cards in any combo you so choose (As long as supplies last for that particular card. The chance to make each card design will be on a first come first make basis). The cost of the class will be $15. If there are extra cards, you may choose to add more cards to your group of 10 and pay $1.50 per additional card.

Below are the samples. Please call to sign up. I have limited space this time due to some changes we are making in our home, but could work with 8 or 10 ladies. Remember, you can always make SMOR cards above and beyond your 10....I know we will have a GAS at this event (just don't pass it)...and you won't get BORD for one minute! Come join us!!! Call now or reply to this post or e-mail.
