heart handmade.

Sometimes I like to create little contests in my head and award imaginary prizes, such as "Best Candy Bar Ev.Er" [which, just so you know, the prize always goes to Butterfinger b/c I'm manic about that stuff].



Anyway, I'm getting off topic. I wanted to send you over to Heart Handmade today, where my dear friend Marichelle has kicked off her new feature, entitled 'Shop and Tell', and where you can see an actual photo of what I look like [eek!]. You know, in case you were curious.



Seriously, Marichelle has a knack for this stuff. She's just started her venture in blogging and has already [in my opinion] found her niche. With an excellent design/layout and some super fantastic content for all handmade-lovers, her blog is an everyday visit of mine.



On top of it? She's a sweetheart, which I love. So anyway, I award her an imaginary prize of this, this and this. Congratulations, Marichelle! You've won my love today!

Love her blog and all of her awesome features.

Mary-Laure said...

I love those top pictures - I'm a hat fan as you may know. I just ordered a handmade hat from Au Coeur d'Artycho, a great blogger and seamstress (check out her blog if you don't know her; I link to her blog on mine)

design for mankind. said...

Uh oh --- another hat? Eek! I don't think I can do it, Mary Laure.

And Krissy--- you are so sweet. Thank you!

MARICHELLE said...

[uncrumpling a piece of paper]

I'd like to thank...

my Mom, my wonderful boyfriend (aka Hillsy) who puts up with my trouble, Kervin (an old boss from Bluefly.com) who taught me most of my Photoshop skills, Karen and Z for being my #1 and #2 readers, Melissa de la Fuente for reminding me on a daily basis that I'm not talking to myself and of course last but definitely not least Erin for recognizing my itty bitty baby Heart Handmade and has been such a strong cheerleader from day one!

Thanks Erin! And the prizes have been carefully placed on top of my imaginary mantel... except for the necklace, I'll be proudly wearing that to my spin class this afternoon :)

design for mankind. said...

HAHAHAH I LOVE you, Marichelle!!! :)

What a stylish summer hat! You look fab!!! I like alot! And I love Marichelle's blog too!

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
