Celebration with Designer Crafts!!

It is that time of year again to bring out the grill, gather some friends and settle in for sparklers and fireworks to light up the night sky. It is also a time to celebrate our Independence. There are many ways to celebrate in our profession of crafting. To show our support with unique accessories that are handmade with Red White and Blue in mind.

By gathering pieces of shabby chic prints of fabric you can throw together a simple but yet festive accessory for most anything. I see these best adorning flip flops, baskets that carry our  " pot Luck" favorites to the cook outs, or maybe you want to create fun hair accessories for the kids. The possibilities are endless and will lend you to have many options to show your creative side.
