Twice in one week! Say it isn't so!

But it is!!

I'm starting to get into the Holiday spirit and looking for presents to buy the people in my life. I'm trying to keep all gifts handmade. This will get tricky for me because I like to see and touch something before I buy it. I've already got some great ideas for my brother and the family gift exchange.

For my brother, I think I'm going to get him a set of the beer soaps that Dennis Anderson makes. My brother is a pretty big beer drinker so I think this will be perfect for him. Click here to see what I'm talking about.

For the family gift exchange, I'm almost positive I'm going to get this handmade candy/jelly bean dispenser from Stump Pond Toy. The family is pretty big on sweets so I think it will be big hit. Click here to see what I'm talking about.

Other than that, I have no idea what I'm getting anyone yet. I need to do some more looking around first.

On a different note, I joined Twitter today. If you are on there, let's follow each other! Find me at

Don't forget! I have a sale starting on Sunday! Visit on Sunday for more information!

Green and Brown and Green and Brown

I've been OBSESSED with greens and browns the past few months. Since about August, actually. I'm working on redoing my bedroom/creating space and found the raddest "rack" to hang my keys, purse and other things from that is in the same green and brown theme.

It comes from Shauniel and is the absolute PERFECT color match. The packaging was phenomenal. Shredded paper, a cloth sack, bubble wrap, a set of 3 matching magnets and a thank you card. I could go on and on :).

Over the past weekend I found out that our local Linen's & Things was closing so I headed over to see if there was anything that matched. And there was! I found a great green and brown stripped shower curtain (yes, shower curtain) that is made out of a cotton fabric and decided to use it as a window curtain. There was only 1 left, so to get the curtain look I was going for I cut it up the middle and stitched up the raw edges. I also bought some chocolate brown satin ribbon and attached it so the curtains can be held back when I want. I also bought some shower curtain hooks that have white ceramic flowers on one end. They look perfect against the curtain and add the perfect touch of "girl".

In the world of Lucky Find Designs, things have been pretty steady. I haven't felt like sewing much the past few weeks so I've been working on getting more products photographed and up online. I've also been doing more marketing and getting ready for the holiday season. My 1 year "etsyversary" is coming up in a few weeks and I'm going to have a sale for it so make sure you check back for more details on that. Oh and don't forget to check in now to see all of the new things I've posted lately.

Until then, thanks for stopping in. I hope you have a great day!
