Spotlight On: claireabellemakes



I was thrilled when my bloggy friend Claire sent me these beautiful handmade creations from her Etsy shop, claireabellemakes, and I couldn't wait to share them with you.



Claire has a knack for picking out the prettiest fabrics and trinkets to display on her pieces, which are all made by hand.

And how cute and whimsical is this scrabble ring?? She sent me the letter 'E', which also just so happens to be my favorite letter. ;)




I just love this sweet and humorous card she sent.  It is so thoughtful with its knitting theme, because we met through the #sheepishyarnbomb day. How fitting! More on that fun little adventure here.


Be sure to drop by claireabellemakes on Etsy to check out her other beautiful creations.  These handmade trinkets would make great gifts since we have the holidays quickly approaching. The holidays are great time to think about supporting small shops and handmade items. You can also find Claire at her blog, where she talks about all things handmade and crafty. Claire is definitely my kind of gal.  :)

Do you have a favorite piece from Claire's shop?

  5. I'm so pleased you (and your readers) like them! And you make a very good model for them, I especially love your hair in the bun with the pins around it. I love seeing how different people accessorize my creations!

    The scrabble rings are selling like hot cakes at the moment. I sent one to NYC last week, all the way from Cambridge, England.

    Thank you for the lovely review and kind words.
