Right now Amy's going seasonal with PDF patterns such as Knit Christmas Ornament Pattern, Knit Penguin Pattern and the Knit Hedgehog Pattern. Any of them makes a great small gift (patterns cost between $2 and $6).

You can also get Amy's books - Little Knitted Creatures and More Cute Little Animals to Crochet on Amazon - they would make a perfect gift for any crafty person you know. They're on my wish list too ;)

Bridal Flowers by xoxoDesigns

I came across the Etsy shop of xoxoDesigns more than a year ago, when I was looking for a bridal flower for my own wedding and I fell in love with Rebecca's designs, after looking through many, many flowers.

As  Rebecca says herself - she has several years of experience of designing in a floral and wedding boutique and her warm love for her creations truly shows even  in the way she wraps them and in the way she deals with her customers.

It felt very personal to me to know that the floral piece I was wearing (yes, that's me in the picture) was hand-crafted for me by a girl, named Rebecca :). I definitely recommend her shop and her work. Her designs range from $30 to $72.

What this blog is all about?

If you'd ask me where I live, I'd tell you I live online :). I spend a lot of time browsing the Internet - randomly or on purpose - when I'm trying to find a present or simply something a need. And I simply love the fact that I can dive into the talent, creativity and imagination of so many crafters and artists out there and fill my eyes with beauty.

✁ If you are one of those people who have the crafting bug inside...
✁ If love beautiful ideas and things (especially hand-crafted ones) and have an eye for the small details... 
✁ If you're looking for inspiration or would like to do something with your own hands... 

Welcome - have a craftcookie from our jar and get yourself a cup of warm milk with honey.
