Woo! Hoo! Country Living Chose my Banners!

Woo! Hoo! Country Living Chose my Banners!

Yes, I’m honored to have designed the stockings (and the tree skirt that is barely peeking out from under that bounty of beautiful packages) for the 2013 Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas.

And double bonus: another set of my stockings appear on Page 100 in the beautiful home of designer and popular blogger Sarah Macklem. It’s like filling, frosting AND sprinkles!!!

Among the thousands of products submitted, my chalk cloth banners were selected to be featured as a fun, innovative product the editors would recommend to their readers.



As always, you’re invited to Join The Party and visit my Shop!
