Find Me At Found May 12, 2008

For those of you who are lucky enough to live in or near Ann Arbor, Michigan, you HAVE to visit Found Gallery in Kerrytown. You will go nuts! Mary has a really charming shop that has original altered art, unique home accents, and lots of vintage treasures to make your own creations. She also has fun events at the shop, including workshops and trunk shows.

Sally Jean herself will be teaching workshops at Found on July 20-23. Sign-up soon, as spaces fill quickly! I myself am counting the days until the Soldering for Virgins class. I learned soldering when I attempted stained-glass, but I am far from good at it. I would love to attempt a tiara like Sally Jean does, but I believe that I will need far more than just that one class!
I am lucky enough to have my designs in this fabulous shop, including my cake toppers and one-of-a-kind bobbi pins and one-of-a-kind magnets. You can also shop at Found on-line, which is where you can register for the Sally Jean workshops as well.

Party Blooms May 9, 2008

I happened to see some fun party goodies that I thought I’d try for myself. They are usually called Surprise Balls, but no one I have talked to thinks that is a good name at all, so I decided to give mine their own name. So, I call these my Party Blooms, as they are a bit flowerish.
These Party Blooms are made of yards and yards of crepe paper in different colors, and you and your party guests can unravel the crepe paper and discover confetti, little plastic vintage charms, and a hand-stamped fortune as you go, as well as a little bottle of bubbles in the center.
I finished them off with a rosette on the top made with more crepe paper, vintage sheet music, old plastic beads, and Vintage German Glass Glitter. Wouldn’t these look great on your table at each place, or even in a cupcake tower in the center of the meal? Everyone loves a little souvenier of a fun fete.

Don’t forget, you can find little plastic vintage charms and Vintage German Glass Glitter in my shop, as well as other little goodies.
