Celebrate with Birthday Banners

Birthday banners are a must have for any party, so why not get one that is handmade and that can be a perfect match to your party's theme?  Store bought banners are okay, but the selection is limited and the quality is not always great.  Let Designer Favors create a custom banner for you.  I have several styles in my shop, but if you don't see what you're looking for simply contact me and I can create any color or saying you want!

I can also match character parties!

All banners are handmade out of quality cardstock and ribbon.  Shapes and sizes can also be customized!

If you need additional decorations, all designs are available in Cupcake Toppers and Thank you Tags.  Stop by Designer Favors to see my current designs!

Princess for a Day!

What little girl doesn't dream that her prince charming will come and rescue her?  Fairy tales are so fun and the Disney Princesses are such a cute party theme.  Of course you can find a ton of store bought items, but none that are personalized for your little girl.

Designer Favors is featuring a wonderful set of princess themed party decorations.  Cinderella is at the forefront, but you can have yours customized with any princess your heart desires!

Flutters Interview

Shop Feature!!!

Yet another wonderful shop found on Etsy!  I came across Flutters this week and had to share.  I contacted her to talk with her about her amazingly cute, girly items.  Here is what she told me:

Tell me a little about yourself
I'm a stay at home Mom and I home school. Obviously that puts me at home a lot, and I also haven't had a car for a few years due to a bad accident I was in. So, I have had a lot of free time to craft and create!

Why did you start making your items?
I went to a craft show and bought some hair bows for my daughters. They were so expensive I thought "I can do this!" So I figured it out, perfected it to my taste and then moved on to Bow holders from there. You have to have somewhere to put all those bows, right? :) I love trying new items that my girls are interested in. The hair wreath has always been a favorite of mine, and my girls love to dress up. I always get their opinion on what I make. I love having their honest advice.

What is your inspiration?
I love beautiful, girly things, but I find myself very practical. I have a husband that works with his hands and he is a perfectionist in all he does. I always show him my work to get his opinion on durability and quality. If I don't like an item, I won't send it until I am satisfied with it! I've torn apart many a crocheted hat after completion because of a little something I just didn't like. I am looking for quality, uniqueness, and beauty. I want my items to have something different about them that can only be found in my shop. 

Anything else you would like people to know about your shop?
I really enjoy the use of vintage buttons. I like using them on my clips, and crocheted hats. Many of these are truly one of a kind because I only have one of that particular button! I also want ideas! If a customer has something they want and they don't see it, I want to know. I would love to work with them to come up with what they were looking for.

The French Connection

How many of you can relate to this? 

"I am a stay at home mom of twin toddlers. I love creating jewelry in any spare time I can find. It is my creative outlet in my hectic stay-at-home-mom life!" Direct quote from PrettyParis on Etsy.

Well, maybe not the twin part but for many of us the rest is true.  I myself am a stay-at-home-mom of a toddler and Etsy has saved my sanity!  Let's hear it for us moms out there and support each others' wonderful handmade crafts.  Stop by PrettyParis today!
