Sunshine? In my pocket??

On occasion, I like to feature one of the wonderful talented artsits that I have had the pleasure to meet thru Cafemom Etsy Team. They are a wonderful group of Mothers and grandmothers, crafters and business women. You can find them by using the Cafemom tag when browsing etsy to find their beautiful handmade goods.
In amongst these talented women, you'll find Pocketful of Sunshine at A crafter in paper, color, and ink, the lovely owner, Maria, grew up eyeing the store windows and thought "I can make that!" About five years ago she did just that. After seeing the cost of wedding invitations, she took on the task of doing it herself. With an eye for detail and the urging from friends and family, she eventually decided to go into business.
Being able to stay home with her son was a catalyst in the decision, and her business has been blessed.
Part of the excitement of her business is designing new and exciting products to share with her customers. There's a buzz about her new business thank you cards (these are on my list of must haves ) which are premade as well as custom designeded with your business logo. Beautiful!

Also in the works, are some amazing all occasion "Bag of Cards". The Valentine sets are doing well, so keep an eye out for the new designs this spring!

Some other exciting goodies soon to come are Lunch tin Coupon boxes and Recipe boxes, as well as a new "Star" card design.

Keep your eyes on Pocketful of Sunshine and please visit her at for beautifully handmade cards and much more!! Thanks for taking a peek and have a twirlie good day!

Old favorites, New Friends

There have been so many new things in my Half-Pint Creations etsy store that it is beyond time for an update! Even with the recession, the business has been blessed. It has kept this Mama movin'! Some new items to share...

Our new "Mama Made It Kits" are for those who have a basic sewing knowledge and want to make a fun whimsical top for their own Half-pint. It includes precut fabric, tutorial, lace, elastic, and all the necessities to make a peasant top. It is available in various sizes and will continue to be available in many fabrics. Keep an eye out for all of the fun and funky spring prints and florals!

Also making their appearance are the sneaky lil' lizards from the "Lizard Luv" collection. They are infatuated with many things....chocolate, cupcakes, guitars, just to name a few. Their friends will slowly be making an appearance thoughout the season.

Have a little rocker in the family? The newest design "for the boys" (can also be made for girls) is the Half-Pint Mohawk Hat. Warm, cozy, and full of funk- this hat will get your little guy noticed!

Another newly designed toddler topper for your little one's noggin, is the "Luv Bug". This heart covered ladybug is sure to make people smile!

New Year, New Look

I'd like to start by wishing all of my friends, family, and customers the happiest of New Year's! This year promises to be one of renewal, change, and most importantly, love and family. My business has been truly blessed not only with sales, but with meeting new people and reconnecting with past friends. I have so many new ideas for the new year. Within the next week or so, there will be new hat designs which are on the sewing pile as we speak, and a new "little Man" collection. Also coming are boys and girls "I'm with the band" shirts with matching hats. They are funky and punky and so much fun!

Here's a peek at the new goodies currently in the etsy store!

Thanks to my wonderful hubby's birthday gifts, the photos have improved a bit! Hop on over to Half-Pint Creations for a visit and let me know what you think! Have a wonderful twirlie good day!
