How fun!

Soooooo....my poor computer got a nasty, nasty virus and has been out of commission for the past week.  My neighbor was so kind to let me use their computer and I found that I won two giveaways!  What a fun suprise! 

First, I won the custom stamper from Letter Cottage.  I love this blog!  She is so talented and everything that her and husband do to their house is beautiful.   They are inspiring DIY'ers.  Check out her blog at The Lettered Cottage and the post she did about my blog here.  She is such a geniune sweetheart.

And then my cutie friend Jackie made a cutie headband and I was so, so lucky to win it!  So exicited!  Thanks Jackie!!  She blogs at Made By The Mama Monster and has so many cute tutorials! 

Soon, I'll have my computer back and soon, I'll be able to post again. 


Snowflake Banner

While making the other Christmas banner, I also made this banner.  I loved the combination of red corduroy, natural colored heavy linen and the red print tied together with the brown. 

A festive, sparkly snowflake adorns each red corduroy pennant. 

This banner looks good in so many places, I just can't decide where I want mine.  Also available in my shop.


Christmas Banner

As promised, here are some detailed pictures of my Christmas banner that was featured on KSL's Studio 5 segment with Mindy Mae's Market. 

I wanted a non-traditional, fun take on Christmas banner this year.  I lucked out finding this great vintage inspired Christmas fabric.  I especially love the Santa.

 I really wanted the banner to have a fun feel to it so I finally cut into my beloved stash of Heather Bailey's Pop Garden, zig-zag striped fabric.  Oh how I love this fabric!   (The ladies at the fabric store were laughing at me when I bought this fabric.  I was petting it, hugging it and loving it.  They asked me what I was going to do with it and I responded that I just wanted to hoard it.  I would of bought the whole bolt if I could of.)  The banner is sewn onto a yummy red satin ribbon and then the decorating began!

Mini red pom-poms and brown brush fringe, green taffeta bows and sparkly silver snowflakes adorn this banner. 

This banner turned out pretty great!  Custom orders available and also available in my Etsy shop. 



Thanks to Grace at Ruby Moon Designs for nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award!   My very first blogging award here on Megity's Handmade. 

Following the rules, seven random facts about me.
  1. I have a nephew that is one month older than me.   There are nearly 20 years between my oldest sister and I. 
  2. I've played the flute since I was in 7th grade to this day.  I teach flute lessons and play with a local professional flute choir, Flautisimo and am lucky when I get the occasional call to play with the local symphony.  I dream of a permanent spot with the symphony!
  3. Speaking of flute, I am a band geek!  Complete with marching band experience.  In my defense, I grew up in Salt Lake City and I moved right before High School started to a small town.  At the new school, marching band was huge and you had to do it to be in band.  I made some great friends!
  4. I only like cucumbers with vinager.
  5. I was named "Melissa" for the first few weeks of my life which was then changed to Megan.
  6. And I am the only daughter in my family without a "y" in her name.
  7. And finally, my husband and his family only call me Lincoln or Linc for short.
So interesting I am sure. 

I nominate these cute gals:
Steph and Angie

Thanks again!

Sweet Tweets Going on Now!

If you live in the area, Sweet Tweets is going on now!  It's a good thing that I don't live so close to this boutique because that means less shopping and less calories.  Somebody made homemade caramels in different flavors like orange, licorice, cinnamon and such.  Mmmmmmm!   (And for us northern folks, make a day of shopping because it's located near IKEA.)  So head on over to Sweet Tweets and pick yourself up a sweet tassel, limited edition banner and some caramels.


Studio 5

Here's the video from today's show.  I thought Nikki did great!  She's an amazing person.  Even more than the video shows.

As soon as I get my banners back, I'll take photos to share.  They really turned out great!  I have to specially thank all that helped me make all these deadlines the last few weeks.  Thank you Jodi, Kem, Sharmyn, Mom & Dad, Sharon, Jackie, Heather, Raylene, Teryn and Jessica.  I sure have wonderful friends and family and I hope you know that!  Doesn't it sound like I am accepting some sort of award??

Mindy Mae's Market

I'm super excited to check out Studio 5 tomorrow because Mindy Mae's Market, the show I'm doing on December 4th & 5th, is going to be featuring some of her vendors and I'm on the list!   I'm very flattered to be listed among all that talent. 

Check out what Mindy Mae's has to say about it here.

So, if you are in Utah, watch Studio 5 at 11am and watch for that cute Nikki.  She's the kindof girl that feels like she's been your BFF since you were born.  Yes, I'm cheesy like that.

Remember, STUDIO 5 - (KSL - Channel 5) WEDNESDAY NOVEMEBER 11TH @ 11AM.   Be sure to tune in!!


Giveaway Ends November 10th.

Just a few more short days until my giveaway closes.  Up for grabs is this cute little Santa with his snowman sidekick.  It comes gift wrapped and tagged perfect for gift giving, even if it's for you.  Quick!  Go and enter here! 

And just because, please read Heather's funny post about my giveaway.  She makes my day with her witty ways. 


Happy Santa and His Snowman Tassel Give Away

So here he is in all of his happy self.  My giveaway at Blue Cricket.  A cute, little happy Santa and his cheering snowman.  This little duo just makes me smile. 

For Blue Cricket's give away that I am sponsering, I am giving away one of these Santa's wrapped in a clear bag with ribbon and a handmade tag and card.  Perfect for gift giving to your favorite someone or yourself.  That's Santa has authentic vintage green trim on him.  I've been hoarding it for a while to do something special with it and he was the one.  

This Santa is just as cute from behind.  I say if you've got it, flaunt it.  Check out his little round rump. 

Everyone of my tassels are handmade and designed by me.  Each one has a lot of time and effort put into designing them.  I love each one and would put each and everyone up in my house if I had the space.  But then I would be known as the crazy tassel lady that puts a tassel on everything and anything.  I'm afraid that I already have a bit of that reputation already. 

What is a tassel anyway?  Well, it's a little decorative touch that makes a big punch in your decor.  I love to hang tassels from obvious places like my armoire, doorknobs and banisters.  But they also look great decorating your candlesticks, vases and pictures.  Try on the back of your barstools and little curio cabinets.  Love them hanging from a single hook.  You are going to love it! 

Head on over to Blue Cricket to enter for your chance to win and if you are in Utah, come on over and pick up some holiday tassels this weekend at Piper & Chloe.  It's a win, win situation!
