Tiny Trees Boutique Party/Gift Ideas & $10 Shutterfly GC Giveaway: CLOSED WINNER





Little Treasures Made from Trees is such a cute logo for the Tiny Trees Boutique that has handcrafted wood jewelry and Scrabble pendants on Etsy.  I happened along this delightful boutique on Etsy on my search for the ever unique and memorable party idea involving a Taylor Swift theme for my six year old.  Taylor is the in thing if you don't know by now and my six year old loves her!

Tiny Trees Boutique has been in business since September 21, 2008 and has 802 ratings and 100% positive feedback!  This is an amazing number and really shows you the depth of quality and workmanship that goes into each of her products based on that high of a rating.  She is a life long crafter and has the experience to back up quality, creative and fun products.

There are many categories to choose from so the possibilities are endless:
  • Abstract/Funky/Retro
  • Animals/Birds/Insects
  • Cute/Fun/Kids
  • Custom Photo/Specials
  • Flowers/Trees/Nature
  • Hearts/Love
  • Initials/Names/Words
  • People/Popular/Misc.
  • Holidays
  • Chains/Cords
For my daughter's party theme, these cute Taylor Swift Pendants look great and especially at the low price of $6!  They are made of the 18mm x 20 mm tiles, sealed with a thick coat of jewelry grade resin and a sterling silver plated ball is attached for hanging a chain or cord which are also available in her boutique.

Cords and chains available include:
  • Silver Ball Chain 20 inch
  • Silver Ball Chain 24 inch
  • Leather Cord Necklace
  • Fuschia Satin Cord Necklace with Extender Chain
As in the prices of the pendants, pins, earrings and cuff links, the chains and cord are all very reasonably priced starting at $4.00.

Whether you are wanting one of these unique, one of a kind pendants as a party theme favor, a gift or something for yourself, the choices appeal to the young and old. 

There are even items such as cuff links, pins and earrings.

I love the Stilleto tile but the customized baby pendant is probably my favorite.  The quality of the photo is very impressive from the actual photo showing a true sample.  Twilight fans will be quite pleased with the assortment of pendants available.

Valentine's Day Gift Idea: Wine, Chocolate & Cards

This idea is a little on the high end of the spectrum for the average person.
RedEnvelope.com has this great leather wine carrying case for $89.95 but it has received 30 reviews and is rated top stars.  You can even personalize the carrier and gift wrap it.  If you have never purchased from Red Envelope, their gift wrapping service is about as wonderful as the gift itself.  It comes in a nice, high-quality red gift box.

To top of the elegance, you can either order your own labels and bottles since there are many businesses that provide that service, buy your own labels (see below) or make your own label.  This is an inexpensive way to add that special, one of a kind look as well as an ability to express yourself.

If you don't want to go with the carrier, you can choose a personalized wine box. Walmart carries a nice one for $21.96.

I personally prefer the one at Personal Creations at $24.95:

Top it off with some customized chocolate from Chocomize and you are set with only finding the perfect card.  There is a giveaway ending 1/25 for Chocomize customized chocolate bars here.

Thanks to Etsy, you can find some really unique cards that have that extra homemade touch to them.

Card Example 1:

This one is from SweetHarvey's shop and is a 10 pack of letterpress mini cards.  Granted you don't need 10 cards specifically but think of the creative ways you can express your love with 10 cards!  Be creative and get romantic with an array of ideas such as using the cards to place strategically for hints at what the night holds.  There are many possibilities.

Card Example 2:

Michellenstamps has cute handmade choices if you prefer a cute way to show your love.  Each one of the textured circles on the card background has been hand applied. The framed words say "love, be mine, hugs and kisses," with a fun assortment of ribbon highlighting them.

Card size is 4 1/4" square. Because the post office will charge you extra to mail a square envelope, I am sending you a 4 1/2 x 5 3/4" envelope. That way if you mail it, you won't need to attach extra postage. The inside of the card is blank, for you to write your own message.

Happy Valentine's Day Planning!

Out of the Box Sampler Win

Thanks to Sheila over at http://www.livingsmartgirl.com, I won the Out of the Box Sampler in her giveaway and I can't be more excited!  I ordered soaps (see prior post from Intentions) who was a sponsor for samples with Out of the Box and love them!  Even my Army husband likes the soap that was included especially for him.

Great Gift Idea for Christmas: Intentions Hand Crafted Soap: Review Update


I just received my beautiful, fragrant hand crafted soaps by Intentions and they are amazing!  I love them so much it's going to be hard to give them away.  Those are the pictures I took of them to try to show the work that went into them.  Some have beautiful tops with the fragrance type while others have "Intentions" stamped into them.  They too pretty to use but I will just so I can add to this review (which I provided on my own without any compensation by Intentions).

If you are looking to be pampered, need something gorgeous for your bath or want to wow someone with a great looking present, check out Intentions.
I just purchased these wonderful hand crafted soaps from Intentions, an Etsy store and I cannot wait to get them!  They are so beautiful, unique and reasonably priced.  I've never been much into the whole "pretty soap" thing but these were screaming at me to buy them!  The one above is intended on being a gift but I just might make it my own personal gift!

The Soap Trio Treasure has three soaps tucked into a treasure chest with a small charm adorning the front. The chest can be filled with additional treasures when the soaps are rehomed to the edge of a basin.   Comes with either pink or burgundy ribbon so I'm picking the burgundy one.

The following fragrances can be chosen:

  • Flowerfull
  • Wistful Winter Wishes
  • Honey Can I Bee
  • Berry Tart
  • Fresh Apple (soap is pictured in very front of basket)
  • Fall In
  • Berry Me
  • Greener Pastures
  • Summer Lime

I also bought the Pink Sugar Natural Sugar bar because it's another natural soap bar with more than 10% grapeseed oil, a luxuriant, emollient skin oil. Coconut milk and sodium lactate act as skin humectants.  This might be too pretty to us!

The Flowerful Sachet/Soap Bar is the next one I couldn't resist.  A so sophisticated floral! An extremely mild soap bar excellent for normal or dry skin. Super filled with cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, honey, micas, Vitamin E.

I was nice this time and bought something for my husband ... a late Veteran's Day present!  It states it's a perfect uni-sex scent. Cedar Forest. Crisp. Clean. Jam packed with skin loving oils of hemp (filled with EFA's, you know the essential fatty acids everyone and their news anchor keep talking about) olive oil, palm and coconut with castor thrown in because it does create awesome bubbles. The big, rainbow throwing ones.

Want to know more about all the great products?  Remember, these make amazing Christmas presents!
