I created Something Sweet & Sassy so I could share with everyone the gifts I had been making for my friends and family.
I started making presents because I was tired of wasting my time at the mall trying to find the perfect gift for the fabulous people in my life. They deserved better – they deserved something made especially for them by someone who really cared.
I also began creating handmade gifts out of material in the hopes my wine bags and gift bags would be passed on to others — making gift giving more sustainable. I try to use all recycled / gently used fabric like dresses or men’s shirts from yard sales and fabric from flea markets.
I was lucky to inherit a room full of crafting supplies from my husband’s grandmother. I’m still making baby blankets, bears and bags!
I began by making cards for my clients when I was in sales. I wanted to show my personal appreciation for their business. So I started stamping and card making. That evolved into re-making my antique jewelry into funky and original pieces. Then came napkin rings and wine bags. Then, wonder of wonders, I decided make all the thank-you gifts for my wedding – including the save the dates, rehearsal invitations and placecards.
They were a hit.
So I continued brushing up on my sewing and creating aprons, wine bags and gift bags, baby blankets and bibs. My lovely god-daughter, niece and nephew, are my best inspirations – I love dreaming up new gifts for them.
Here are the fruits of my efforts. Stay tuned…and enjoy the experience.
