Beach Inspired Necklaces

Who doesn't need a fun necklace? Sometimes I want something simple, but other times, I need something bold and colorful to brighten up a plain outfit. We've listed a handful of necklaces on Etsy - click on the photos to go to the listings!







 This one is pretty, but even prettier once it's worn! It feels like something a mermaid would wear.

Beer Bottle Cap Art on Etsy

Over the past few years, we've grown quite an impressive collection of bottle caps. It started with mindlessly tossing bottle caps into a bucket after a drink until suddenly, the bucket was full! We've talked for years about creating something cool from our bottle cap collection, but it took us until this summer to follow through. I posted pictures of my first bottle cap experiment here.

We've created two different items from our bottle caps. First we have decorative wall art pieces, and second, we have bottle cap chalkboards! Click on any of the pictures to view the Etsy listing for each piece.





(The orange-edged one sold, and the green-edged one isn't on Etsy yet because it is missing a hanger.)

2015 Keenwick Sound Craft Fair

Thanks to everyone who visited us yesterday at Keenwick Sound! Even though we didn't win any cool raffle prizes, we had a fantastic day!

We thoroughly enjoyed being in the shade all day!



We're now making our beer totes with a side pocket for coasters or napkins. As always, they have a bottle opener fastened to the other side.

Crab caddies were very popular yesterday! It's nice to know that so many other people enjoy eating crabs :)

Purses and Tote Bags for August

Over the past few years, we've made plenty of bags, but our new bags look a little different from our old ones. Specifically, we've started designing bags based on feedback from customers. Click on any of the pictures to see the listing on Etsy.



The number one request we have receive from customers is to have straps shortened or lengthened. Though it's easy to alter straps, we have started a new proactive approach - adjustable straps! All of our  new handbags come with an adjustable strap, zippered pocket, and hook for keys.




Another new thing we've been making is tote bags! Quilted bags are fun, but sometimes it's just as fun to make a large bag that shows off a fun print. Tote bags can be super useful, too!
