Mother/Daughter Etsy Shop Raises Money for Mother’s Surgery

Today I’d like to share with you a Mother/Daughter team shop on Etsy, FromScrapstoCrafts.  Daughter, Kristin is selling their handmade goods to help raise money for her Mother’s hand surgeries.  You can check out her blog and read the full story here.

EDIT: I apologize, I first heard of Kristin and her shop through Pillows-A-La-Mode who wrote about their shop here.

Her Mother, Linda, has been creating her own paintings on glassware for years now to support her Father who suffered from a stroke over 10 years ago.  In the last year she has suffered intense pain in her hands to where she could no longer paint and support her family.  The doctor confirmed she has severe nerve damage in both hands.  In order to regain her hand strength and use, she must undergo $8,000 in surgeries and after-care or she will lose complete use of her hands.

Don’t forget to check out her Facebook page with other Fundraiser items here.  Lots of the glassware is pictured there!

The great thing about this Etsy shop is that the items are made by them both!  All scrapbooking items are made by Kristin: handmade cards and gift tags, her Mother made these: wine glasses and glassware, solar lights, candles and candle holders.  Here are a few of my favorites in her shop!

I hope you will all check out her shop and favorite her items or share them with your networks!  Or if you feel the need, I guess I can deal if someone else wants to buy her Strawberry painted glassware!!!

Please show your support in any way you can, to see such artistic talent be taken away is very sad.  She paints beautifully and I hope she can pick up a brush again soon!

NEW Shop Page open on the website!

I’ve opened my new Shop page on this website!  Please view it here!

You’ll find my purse refashions there: my upcycled envelope purse, the Anthropologie-inspired wristlet, and my Over the Shoulder Mini Purse.

While I move through my Year of Something New, I plan to add some of the items I make to this page to sell.  I will add them when I post them for you to see!  Please keep a look out for new items added to the shop as I paint, sew, or otherwise create stuff!  I cannot wait to hear what you all think!  Please remember I can supply more photos if they are ever needed!  If you have questions do not hesitate to contact me!

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Clutch

I love these beautiful Anthropologie Inspired pillows!  However, I just don’t have the time or patience to tackle such a project!  A pillow tutorial for those who want to try it: StuffSteffDoes.

Anthropologie Inspiration

Luckily I was at a thrift store today and found this mini clutch that inspired me right away!  I loved the original color, a deep blue turquoise teal color!  A quick choice of paint colors, some Fabric Medium (very important!), and Mod Podge Gloss and we’re good to go!

That darker spot just needs another coat of paint

This is pre-gloss. I LOVE it!

I love how it turned out!  I’m developing a new Shop page on my website that will include my upcycles, painted purses, and other non-jewelry, non-acrylic paintings stuff!  I hope you will all visit the page once it is finished!  All items will be for sale through PayPal.  So if you really like this, be on the lookout for the page to open and this Clutch to be for sale!

EDIT: This clutch has been added to the Shop: Other Artistic Avenues.

So, what do you think??  Have you tried anything like this?

NEW Facebook page!

Hi everyone!  I have a NEW FACEBOOK page!  I am moving and soon to be closing my old page, Pear’s Palette, in favor of a new page that more clearly connects all of my work together.  Now my blog and facebook page will match!  You may still find my Etsy page as Pear’s Palette and if you know of Craftstar, my profile name is PearsPalette there as well.  However my shop is opening at Craftstar very soon under Christina Designs Art!  I welcome you all to check it out, perhaps Favorite me now, so when my items are added you will know 🙂

My Twitter handle has not changed but my name showing will now be ChristinaDesignsArt.

I would love if you would all head over there and LIKE my new Facebook page!!  Still setting everything up so theres not much to see yet, but these next few days will be spent setting it all up and getting it running!
