Snowed In :: Valentine's Day

Yes, Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away! Instead of just a card or candy why not something handmade and unique. Cinne of C. Banning Accessories curated her favorite Etsy finds all in white, because a Valentine gift doesn't have to be pink or red.  We hope our finds inspire your gift search and remember to #shopsmall and #buyhandmade!

 

Happy Valentine's Day!

Living in Maine, summers are just not fully complete until you've had lobster and spent some time out on the open water.  Anything nautical during this time of year is a natural fit and brings to life the rich maritime history of the coast.  Even if you don't live by the water, I've handpicked 4 handmade items with a nautical theme so you can feel the cool breeze of the ocean no matter where you live!

Elite16 :: Spring Gift Guide

It's spring and we are so ready to kick off the socks AND the season with our new Elite16 Spring Gift Guide!  We were inspired to go with a minimal look to really showcase the beauty in each of the handmade items.  In making our selections for the guide, we carefully handpicked each item from a group board while we considered the overall look and feel of the collection.  Then, we unleashed the creative power known as Cinne Worthington and she went into her zen space and dazzled us with her graphic design genius!  We think you'll agree that there's much to love about a handmade life and what we as creative beings create individually and collectively as artist.  We dedicate this guide to YOU!

How do you feel about the color blue?  Oddly, it's not a color I am usually drawn to when it comes to clothing.  However, I love the color blue in nature.  Blue skies, blue ocean, blue jays, blueberries!  As a water sign myself, I can tell you that I do love the ocean and living near water - it's been around me my whole life.  The color blue is soothing, it feels healing and tranquil.  I decided to put together a little gift guide for all those fellow Pisces out there around the color blue.  

I'm curious to know how the color blue plays into your life?  Love it, hate it, can't live without it?  You tell me!
