Feature post & Giveaway: Handmade Colectibles

  

 Regardless if Handmade Colectibles was a sponsor of mine or not, I would have been SO into sharing this fabulous woman and small business with all of you. I actually had the privilege of meeting Cole last year and fell in love with her super sweet personality. She's truly a doll. And even better, Cole's incredibly creative and makes some of the most gorgeous felt creations at her Etsy shop.  We actually have a mustard and cream wreath hanging on our front door, and her roses throughout our home. I can tell you from first hand experience what great quality they are, and how fabulous Cole's customer service is. I love the idea that you can give a bouquet that will last forever.  This month Better Homes and Gardens agrees with me, and you can find her in their Holiday and Crafts issue, on newsstands now. Also be sure to check out her personal blog, it's really inspiring and one of my favorites.

the same wreath we have on our door!

From Cole:

Hi I'm Cole, wife & mama, blogger, Arizona native & pretty-felt-flower maker. I’ve been obsessed with roses ever since I was a little girl and my dad would bring me home a bouquet full of them every year on my birthday.  Nowadays the fascination has turned into a creative passion as I spend my days making handmade roses out of wool felt so that they can be treasured forever. I love being able to create something unique and beautiful for someone’s home or wedding day and know that it will be something that they can cherish for years to come.  Handmade Colectibles began a year ago and it has been an exciting journey ever since. My hope is that you will fall in love with one of my creations because I absolutely love making each one.


And today I am REALLY excited to offer a rad giveaway from Handmade Colectibles. 

Up for grabs is a $45 shop credit!

Here's how to enter:

Visit Handmade Colectibles on Facebook, and become a fan by "liking" the page.  Then leave a comment below letting me know you did so, along with your name and email address! Simple!

I'll choose a winner THIS THURSDAY, 9/29/11.

Good luck to all who enter!
