Five Under Five

I am enjoying Daily Candy emails this week that are doing a series for different locations of "Ten Under Ten" things you can do around town that are under ten dollars. Well, I looked at Craft Athens and found some really great finds for under five dollars, before shipping! Here we go...

Let's talk art. Who doesn't love buying cute artwork to adorn the walls of their homes? This print is by ipullprints and meets our $5 mark.

Magnets are a fun way to spruce up a fridge, office, or craft room. Christy Wooke has a very affordable and customized magnet for $4! What a steal!

Pretty much everyone knows a gal that loves earrings. I spotted these Sky Blue Earrings at Joyful Creations, and they meet our $5 price.

Check out this lovely giraffe pendant from Jenny at Mountain Majesty. This little charm is $4. Animal prints are so in, don't you know?

If jewelry isn't your thing, why not some new lippy? This yummy German Chocolate Cheesecake Lip Balm is only $2.75 and is made by my friend Daisycakes Soap.

Handmade Wedding

Our good friend Libby from Daisy Doodles on Etsy is getting married this weekend! We threw her a fabulous wedding shower last week, but my cake message written in icing got a little runny. Other than that it was, like I said, pretty fabulous! Libby has been planning her big day for a while and has found some great things to spice up her big day right on Etsy!

Wedding favors are these cute little garden kits complete with seeds, soil pellet, and they are even personalized! These fun favors are made by Kikibird Crafts.

Libby found these very pretty pendants by Art Made By Tammy for her bridesmaids. I love the colors and the vintage style. Libby showed me these when they came in and they really are charming.

Finally, let's talk cake. This little birdie cake topper Libby found is super cute. This little bird couple is made by Red Light Studio and the birds can even come out of the nest! These are simply perfect for the almost newlyweds, Libby and John! Best wishes, Libby!

Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa Spring 2009

We had a great time at the Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa last weekend. It has taken me some of this week to recover! Here is the view from our table. We had a little rain on Saturday, and Sunday was cloudy and breezy. I think my tent was safe from winds being so close to our neighbors, Christy Wooke, Prairie Dog Inc. and Laurel Hill!

Raoul wrote about our days on two parts here and here. A big thanks goes to the woman in charge, Serra, for making such a successful day for so many artists! I look forward to the next Craftstravaganzaa!
