Updates from the Cute Stuff Sale

If you missed the Cute Stuff Sale on NGN, we had a lot of fun! But you are not completely out of luck... all of the shops that participated in the sale are offering a 15% coupon this whole week (Enter code LOVENGN at checkout)! Of course, you can get my coffee cozies, wallets, and tote bags from Fancy Funky Fresh, but I wanted to share some of my favorite shops too.
At the sale I made purchases from Linkel Designs, and Lilac Ave. These two shops are AWESOME!

Linkel Designs has such lovely jewelry, made by a mom-and-daughter team. I wanted every single piece they listed. I ended up snagging a really beautiful ring, and there are lots of other wonderful things in the shop. So go check out their Etsy shop and blog!

Lilac Ave. makes the best skin care products. At the last sale I bought a lip balm, and it is my absolute favorite! My mom and sisters are really jealous. This time I got a lotion bar, which I can't wait for! Her shop has so many great items to choose from and they are all eco-friendly. You've got to see her Etsy shop, and follow Lilac Ave. on  facebook

The Cute Stuff Sale

I'm so excited to tell you guys about the news!
I'm selling some of my handmade creations at the Cute Stuff Sale hosted by NiceGirlNotes!
This sale is so much fun.... Here's how it works.
I'd be so thrilled if some of you participated. There is laughing, there is dancing, there is buying, there is smack-talking. It's a blast!
Don't worry, if you can't make it to the sale on FB, there will be a discount offered by all of the participating shops... 15% off! The discount code is LOVENGN, which you enter at checkout anytime during the week following the sale.
My shop, Fancy Funky Fresh was featured on the NiceGirlNotes blog the other day. How cool is that?! It is truly one of my favorite blogs to read for all the funny stories, cartoons, and of course, cute stuff.

All of the items featured in the Cute Stuff Sale will be discounted at least 25% and all prices include shipping. I'm selling some of my best sellers like coffee cozies and Carry-It wallets. Plus some new stuff too. Like this:
Crossbody Bow Bag

Get excited folks! Let me know if you plan on participating, I'd love to see you there.

Look What I Made... Wanna Win It?

Hi there. I'm so so SO excited to share my most recent project with you! I've been admiring these little leather cross body bags. Here are some I really like:
I thought since I have been working with vinyl a lot lately that I could manage something like this. So I went to work last night on a black faux leather crossbody purse.
...And I did it!

leather bag 4
It is the perfect size to hold all of my essential items. But it's small enought that it doesn't allow me to collect junk (which I tend to do when I have the capacity of a large bag).
leather bag 5
The inside pattern is a geometric Amy Butler Home Dec fabric... which I've had forever but hadn't got around to actually using. I think it works well here.
Here's my outfit for the day:
leather bag 1
Top: Ragdolls
Jeans: Seven for all mankind (ebay!)
Shoes: BC footwear (Nordstrom Rack)
Necklace: Mandipidy
Purse: made by me!
leather bag 2

Ok, wanna win the purse?
I'd like to announce my first reader appreciation giveaway! When My blog reaches 50 follwers, I'll have a giveaway and this will be the prize! As of right now, I'm at 42 follwers. So tell your friends about my blog, my shop, or just about this great purse and we'll have a giveaway!
I'm looking forward to meeting new friends :)
