Friday Night Feature!

Welcome to week #2 of my Friday Night Feature! I have two terrific shops to share with you tonight!
Our first shop this evening is Cherrypips. Nicola makes some of the cutest brooches I have ever seen! I have personally purchased one from her shop and can tell you that they are not only adorable but very well made!

Here’s a little bit about Nicola, “I am based in Hull in East Yorkshire. I live in a big city but I am still close to open countryside, the Humber Estuary and the North Sea.
I have been making Cherrypips items for almost one year and love working with all my favorite materials: felt, woolly things, threads, paper, vintage haberdashery items, buttons and beads.
Making Cherrypips items has given me a great excuse for searching out new items to add to my already over full craft cupboard!
My favorite all time shop when I was a child was Coles Haberdashery which used to be on the High Street in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire. Sadly long gone!

"Our house is bursting at the seams with all my collections, Hornsea Pottery, Scottie Dog items, vintage craft books, buttons, beads, old Christmas decorations and lots more besides. I love designs from the 60's and 70's, big daisies, bold colours.
Making Cherrypips items gives me an opportunity to link all these interests together.”

“I am more than happy to make special orders on commission, just get in touch if there is something you would like."


Our second shop this evening is Craftyd's Creations.

Dolores is one seriously talented crafter! Her shop is just bursting with a little bit of everything! Her shop announcement reads, "Welcome to my shop. I will be having Greeting Cards, ACEO's, Tags, Felt Embellishments and an assortment of other things for sale in my shop. Be sure to check back often for new things."

I have seen her work first hand and was so impressed with it! Her shop is one that I would always return to, not only for the high quality work that she does but for all of her friendly help and conversation!

Dolores writes in her profile, "I have been crafting for many years and have made and sold many different things. Right now I love making greeting cards and have started making tags and ACEO's also.
My products all come from a smoke free and pet free home.”

Thanks so much for sopping by to check out this week's shops! I hope that you enjoyed them. Remember, the photos that I share are just a sampling of what is available! Please take the time to stop by both of these fantastic Etsy shops to see everything that they have listed.

See you next Friday Night!
