Surprise from Shellie

Ever since my friend Shellie and I decided we would be partners in our first-ever craft fair, we have been meeting weekly to share ideas. How to display our items? What to charge? Even what to wear! At our recent meeting she surprised me with a banner! Shellie made each pennant from different, coordinating fabrics. The banner is amazing, just like Shellie!

It looks so perfect and festive in my "girly office."

To see more of Shellie's creations visit her blog at byathreadgifts.

(Hmm . . . what to make for Shellie?!)

What a lovely banner and I am sure it will bring in the customers, no idea what you can di=o in return though!!!!

I love the blogs that have a slant on decor........I love going to look at show houses and see what is the latest trend in decor.....but then I love looking at the wonderful photographs of the interiors of bloggers homes too...

Gorgeous! And your office is FANTASTIC! Love it! I'm so inspired now, especially since I end up changing my office every two or three months. :)
