  • Giveaway:: Lavender Lapel Pin

    It’s been a while!  I am still here with a desire to help other creative moms or dads show their talents by hosting a giveaway!

    Today, I’d like to introduce you to Darlene, homeschooling mother of 4 who has been crafting since her babies were babies!  She started a little business she calls Fuss & Feathers and makes all sorts of wonderful embellishments for clothing, hair and even wedding arrangements.

    My biggest inspiration was my Grandma Ross. She could do ANY handwork – crochet, knit, cross stitch, embroidery sewing and smocking. Not to mention a wonderful cook, baker, professional cake decorator, gardener of flowers and food, go hunting – fishing etc. This is a very small list. I strive to accomplish even 1/2 of what she had and still have a warm happy home. I am definitely leaving out the hunting and fishing!”

    Her husband just finished his first year in law school, so, “I only work on my business part time because of schooling and church obligations (hospitality etc)… so between helping him and the kiddos… I feel like I barely have time to sleep! lol I would love to make F&F a full time venture and be able to “hire” my girls and nieces. They are a pretty creative group.

    It’s a gorgeous lavender lapel pin she’s offering to you all.

    Pretty silvery lavender fabric. It is very versatile can be pinned in many different places on shirts, sweaters, dresses, tanks, etc. You could also use this on belts, bags or purses.

    Length 11 inches
    Width 5 1/2 inches

    *Backed with felt and two brooch pins to help place it exactly where you want it!
    *Edges have been left “raw”
    Ribbon has been heat sealed to prevent fraying. Beading sewn by hand.

    o1.  Please visit her Etsy and leave a comment telling me what other item you like
    o2.  *Like* her on FB
    o3.  And get an extra entry if you share this with someone and they enter, too! (they must tell me who sent them)

    Thank you all for participating and helping a fellow mother and crafter spread her talent around!
    **This giveaway ends Thursday, May 17th 12pm EST**
