I am excited to be able to post another special handmade gifting post. 2 weeks of gifting my work and both for wonderful reasons.
Last week was my cousin’s bridal shower and this weekend our friends Bryan and Robyn had their baby shower. They are having a little girl who they are naming Piper (after Piper from Charmed.. how cool is that?! Very!) and well you can’t have a baby girl and not get one of my barrettes… or two.
Frank and I got them a few things off their registry and then I added these little butterfly baby barrettes into the mix.
I got a few extra photos after the shower of Daddy To Be Bryan and Auntie To Be Lisa (both long time very dear friends to Frank and I). The Wilson’s have always been a 2nd family to us. You may recognize them from some of our wedding photos as they both stood up in our wedding 🙂
Last but not least me with my girl Lisa. Our green hair sortof meshes well together eh! 🙂
If you have a baby shower or children’s birthday party coming up and would like a custom piece made by yours cruelly just hit me up. Commissioned custom pieces are my favorite thing to do! You can see more of my creations on my website as well.
This is another one of my special Freaky Fanatic posts that involves me gifting my art to one of my loved ones. This past weekend I had fun celebrating my cousin Nellie as a Bride To Be! She is getting married this October and her bridal shower was a lot of fun and very memorable.
Frank and I got her and Vince a cool floor lamp off their registry but I decided to make a little something special for the bride as well. I thought she would dig one of my Vintage Burlesque Dead Girl Decay Barrettes, so I made her one that I hope years from now will remind her of her special day….
As you can see from the look on her face that she really liked it…
Last but not least here is a photo of me (right) with my beautiful cousins at the shower….the Bride To Be Nellie (in the middle) and her sister Chelsea (left).

The past few weeks I have been a busy Aunt making gifts for my niece Kayla’s baby shower. She is doing her baby’s nursery in Disney’s The Aristocats with emphasis of the character Marie (because she is having a baby girl).
Today was her shower and I was very happy to see the smile on her face when she opened up her gifts.
With the help of my husband Frank we were able to make her a wooden wall hanging of Marie. I drew it on wood, my husband cut it out with a saw and sanded it. I then painted it and sprayed it with a protective gloss.
I also made her a set of my “Mummy and Me” matching Mother and Daughter Hair Barrettes. I picked the colors out based on what I thought Kayla would like and then when I saw the beautiful dress she was wearing for the shower I knew I did well. I couldn’t believe how much they matched what she actually wore to the shower.
And last but not least a photo of Great Aunt Nicole with the beautiful Mommy to be….
