My Funny Valentine

I’m always looking for fun, unique greeting card ideas. I came up with this one a while ago, but thought this was as good a time as any to share it with you! It is inspired by the TV show Arrested Development.

my funny valentine cardThis design was styled to look like embroideries of days gone by.

 

This is a fun, silly card to give to a VALENTINE, GAL-entine, or someone who loves Arrested Development.  It is available in my etsy shop, printed on white or craft paper.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Handmade StockingsStockings for myself and my furry friends.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, two creatures were stirring as they’d heard a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, each hand-made…and covered in cat hair.

Handmade Stockings with CatFerdinand loves his stocking and his new goldfish toy.

This post welcomes the newest addition to Pink Toe Press‘ holiday line-up: Custom Pet Stockings. These stockings are hand-made with love and care using felt and embroidery threads. The stockings you see in this posting were made for my two cats. Customers are able to personalize the colors of the stocking from available felt colors to match the color fur of their pets. Hand-embroidered and embellished with vintage buttons and ric-rac, these stockings are a must-have for any pet lover!

Handmade StockingsThe two design options: Realistic fur colors; Festive bright colors.

Currently, there are two color options available: Realistic Fur Colors and Festive Bright Colors. Each will have a plain backing with most embellishments saved for the front of the stocking. Designs are reversible and can be hung either way.

Merry Christmas!

Terrarium

I noticed that this little guy was shown in one of my earlier posts, but I hadn’t shared him with y’all yet. So here you go!

This is Terrarium that I made not too long ago. It is made with eco-Felt, wool felt balls, embroidery thread, ribbon, cotton gingham, and some acrylic paint. The jar is a recycled/up-cycled jar with tiny handles on the sides. It’s a really lovely piece that is actually for sale at the Handmade Galleries in LA.  This is one of my favorite terrariums to date. It’s nice and big and is quite lovely. Each flower (felt ball) is hand embroidered with painstaking detail and is nestled amongst leaves of grass. There are three unique flowers inside the terrarium as well as one small flower on the outside of the terrarium (on the bow). Green grass is even painted on the bottom of the jar to give it even more dimension.

I hope you like this piece as much as I do.

Busy Busy

Sorry I’ve been missing in action for a while now…I’ve been working on several design jobs that have been keeping me rather busy lately. This piece is newer, but not brand new, and I know I haven’t shared it with you yet. I think it’s quite lovely…and everyone loves cake. Enjoy!

Take care,

P.
