I have been busy at work making some new wood jewelry. I love making these wood pins and hairpins from my drawings. They so remind me of cookies! Cookies you can wear!
Raoul says this looks just like Nilla when she is asleep. Nilla is so cute. And of course these little kitties are inspired by our beloved pet cat!
This batch of wood items are made from wonderful birch wood. I just love the light texture in this wood. It makes these things look so pretty!
These goodies are ready at Shoppe Sugar Cookie and some at my website, too!
We had some Black Friday fun at the INDIE CRAFT EXPERIENCE POP-UP SHOP that our friends Christy and Shannon organized. The shop is open until the end of December at the WOODRUFF CENTER/HIGH MUSEUM in Atlanta, and it will be changing throughout this time with even more handmade goodness to fill your holiday wishes!
The ICE Pop Up Shop has more than just local handmade. I saw so many of my favorites from around the country!
I have some of my handmade goodies at the ICE Pop Up Shop, too. What great displays round the whole shop, too. Will you pledge to buy handmade for the holidays?
If you can't visit this shop, please remember there are some other shops you can visit in person or online, too. RENEGADE HANDMADE, ATOMIC BOOKS, QUIMBY'S, NANCY, YOUNGBLOOD, SHANALOGIC, and OHH BOY! are all fantastic places to find handmade goodies this season! Plus, they carry my handmade goodies, too!

Yesterday we went to see the SANRIO POP-UP SHOP at ATLANTIC STATION in downtown Atlanta! The touring pop-up shop was in celebration of SANRIO'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY. It was so much fun! Even though it was a little rainy, we got to see the cute Sanrio goods. We also did some shopping, too!
Inside the shop was really neat, too. The ceiling had the characters all over, just like the trucks that travel with the Sanrio Pop Up Shop.
I was very excited to see Hello Kitty! I even took GRETEL, my Blythe doll. She is wearing the HELLO KITTY COSTUME. Did you know Gretel and I have matching Hello Kitty costumes? Mine did not come to the shop due to the rain!
They even had a HELLO KITTY SMART CAR! It was so cute.
Later on Hello Kitty made an appearance! I felt so happy to see her and get this picture taken with her!
