we welcome wood

We are excited to bring wood into Pebbles in my Pocket... this cute little owl is our start and we will add more quite often. We all have our favorite printed papers and so I thought it best to just sell the plain wood and you can pick your own paper, either from our website or from your stock at home. I am working on an easy tuturial for you that I will post on the blog in the next day or two. As I drew up my first pattern for you, it felt a bit awkward, but as I started working with the wood again, the ideas are starting to pop in my head. This will be a fun project and the wood will be available for you at our store and online here.

This is our first wood giveaway to help spread the news...           LIKE and CLICK SHARE on facebook to your crafty friends anytime today through Monday November 5 and we will randomly select a winner of our woodsy owl. We will have a FREE giveaway for each new pattern we release. You can find our facebook page here. Thank you and happy sharing!!!

Have a wonderful day!

november 2012 visiting teaching

Our November 2012 Visiting Teaching Message and Treats have just been created and are ready to go. $2.49 each. Individually wrapped chocolates are tucked inside. Yum! As always, join together and save on shipping if you live mailing distance away. For the month of November, we are able to pick our favorite talk. One of my favorites was Elder Hollands talk... it gave me much needed answers that I have been praying for. Don't you love how that works? If you have a different favorite, you can easily print it out and slip it inside for your sister. Have a wonderful day!

this week at pebbles october 22-29

Good morning! 
On these fall stormy days don't you just want to stay home in your pjs and putter... maybe curl up with a good book and a handful of MM's? Doesn't matter how much I love what I do... my heart is always home. I feel blessed that I live a quick 5 minutes away from Pebbles.

Today, I am working on Christmas Creativity for Kits, but have Fall in my heart. Always have. The colors, the message of thankfulness... everything! Of all the seasons, fall for me is the most wonderful season to create for, followed by Love / Valentines. Today however, I must focus on Christmas and have ideas in my head to work on... they should be ready soon. I will be in touch!
Take care,

This week at Pebbles:

thanksgiving paper crafts

Take a peak at the beginnings of our Thanksgiving paper crafts... many more to come!  Why is it that fall brings such a hearty appetite for good homemade food and a desire to nest at home? This is a good time to open our homes to family, friends and neighbors and share a meal with them. Is there anything better than to gather around the table? These treat boxes are sure to bring joy when placed on your table as a place setting or used as a party favor to take home. They are available as affordable kits here  or save time and purchase them premade here. Of course, they are also available in our shop too. If you live near Orem, Utah drop by... we would love to meet you :) I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

chevron gift bag with handmade paper bow

The Scene and Noted Collection by Pebbles Inc. could possibly be my favorite collection ever... the aquas, reds, grays and yellows are fresh and fun, perfect for just about any project you can think of. Here we folded down a gray chevron bag, stapled a hand written flag tag and folded doily and then glued on a dimensional paper bow with button using the Seen and Noted Collection. Feel free to trade out any color of bag or printed paper to coordinate with the celebration you are working on. They would make a perfect gift bag or take home party favor or place settng. Pretty cute and easy peasy too :)

Spider Treat Box

They say three times the charm. This is my second practice project, but the real test will be if I can remember how I did this tomorrow. Stay tuned :)

I am having fun and like it so far. Our Spider Treat Box is spooky cute for Halloween parties. Fill with your favorite treat. Available as a kit of six here or as a set of six premade Spider Treat Boxes here... we did the work for you :)

I will be up late practicing :)

owl pillow box

I think heaven lies where summer ends and fall begins. There is something magical about the crispness in the air, the leaves are changing color and it starts getting darker earlier and earlier. Makes me want to settle in at home and nest.

I am learning Illustrator. I know many of you think I already know the program, but truth is I sketch a lot and pass it on to someone who knows what they are doing. I can learn something on the computer and minutes later, draw a blank and get lost with no clue. It promises to be a challenge for me.

I want to mix things up and present our creativity in a new way. I like the warm background for the owl. I am thinking so far so good. What are your thoughts?

I love this little owl pillow box we created, it comes in a kit and also premade in quantities of six (saving you time). He will be awfully cute for your fall table settings and parties... fill with your favorite treats to make him doubly yummy!

Happy Monday to all of you!
