And now a word from our sponsors…

Every month there is something new in the shop, including handmade seasonal items, like hand-dyed bottle brush Christmas trees around the holidays. There are always new and exciting goodies in the shop to give your projects that extra special, unique flair. It’s a happy crafty place!
Hydrangea Hippo’s trim bundles are all trims collected during Jennifer’s trips to the fashion district in LA, to her grandmother’s collection of vintage fabrics, and to flea markets. Delicate lace, hand dyed cotton, jute woven trims…there’s so much to choose from and each week, there’s more fabulous trims added to the shop. These move fast so if you see something, you like, don’t delay. If they get a deal on a trims, theyâ€™ll pass that on to you! Here’s a layout featuring some of the trims available in the shop:
Stick pins in several styles are also available in packs of 8 as well as in custom colors and in bulk. Baker’s Twine, handmade felt and paper bag books, diecuts, shaped sequins, and anything and everything else “inspired” is included in the shop.
