Okay, so I’m putting this out for all to see…that is, for all who visit my website who know m (which is likely not a lot). So, it’s safe to say that posting this picture of what will likely be my centerpieces for my April 28 wedding, should not ruin the surprise of too many folks. Plus, I need my mom to visit my site to see what I’ve been trying to describe to her over the phone. The glass cylinder main vase has a printed photocopy of one of our engagement photos. I filled the vase with navy beans and inserted several willow branches ($1.99 at Jeffrey Alans) and hot glued some mini cupcake liner flowers on the branches. Simple as that! The Ball jars wrapped in fabric will have a small candle. The puffy balls are made from coffee filters, so everything is done inexpensively, but very creatively! Beats the cost of having real flowers, plus I think some people will appreciate the effort put into hand crafted items (at least I would!).


Fabric Flowers

December 4, 2011

I love making my fabric flowers. I’ve turned several into pins, hair clips or necklaces! I will have to find a fun purpose for them in my upcoming wedding!

Sugar Scrubs are here!

November 23, 2011

I’ve been making these sugar scrubs the past few days and I’m taking orders left and right, thanks to my co-workers. They smooth and soften rough hands and feet without leaving them greasy. And they’re made with ingredients you buy at the store! Choose from Dreamsicle, Sweet Brown Sugar, Lemon Butter Cake, Banana Nut, Peppermint and Caramel Roll. Perfect gift for a friend, co-worker, new mom or a gift exchange, and, of course…yourself! Interested in placing an order? Email me (Kari) at hipchickdesigns4u@gmail.com

Baby Invites

October 28, 2011

What I love designing most (next to wedding invitations) are baby invitations! Check out a couple I’ve done recently. Both were designed to match the bedding in the baby’s room.

Jerome Craft Show 2011

October 17, 2011

Saturday was the annual craft show in Jerome. Small turnout of shoppers, but I still have some cute things available. Let me know if anything strikes your fancy! I’ll likely be selling all my crafts at Fridayz Flower Shop very soon!

It’s Wedding Season!!

August 25, 2011

…for me at least! I have been in full wedding mode since my sweetie popped the question on July 2nd, and being the crafty creature God created me to be, I plan on designing my own invitations, programs, centerpieces and more! After designing many bridal shower invitations and wedding programs for other people, I’m FINALLY doing my own! The wedding is April 28, 2012, but there’s lots of things to be done between now and then! Stay posted for any of my crafty ventures…it’s gonna be a wild ride!

Family Dedication 2.5.11

February 7, 2011

This past Saturday, West Side Christian Church celebrated families who welcomed a baby (or two) into their home over the past year. I was asked to help with some of the pinwheel and other decorations. I also created the monkey and owl boxes which contained a pair of baby socks. Too fun!! See something you like? Shoot me a note and I’ll be glad to help!

Cookie Sheet Magnetic Boards!

December 20, 2010

These magnetic memo boards are perfect for office or kitchen! Post pictures, notes, memos, recipes, etc. Makes a great gift anytime!

‘Tis the season for sharing! What better way to complete that gift bag than to top it off with a pinwheel magnet! I’ve got lots of holiday colors to choose from – or let me customize one for you! I can also personalize a card for the bag for that special someone! Remember, I also have owl paintings, polka dot pinwheel frames, birthday gift bags and more! There’s something very unique and magical when you give a customized hand-crafted gift this Christmas! Many blessings to all of you!
