Ginger Snap Crafts: saturday surprise {alayna's creations giveaway} CLOSED

saturday surprise {alayna's creations giveaway} CLOSED


I'd love to introduce YOU to Alayna from Alayna's Creations. 
Alayna just opened her own etsy shop! {So exciting!}

I’m a stay at home mom with two energetic little ones.  Born and raised in Utah, my husband recently switched from the Reserves to full time military and we moved across the country to North Carolina.  What an adventure!  I love crafting, creating, scrapbooking, and photography  and have a background in interior design.  When the house is all clean (and many times when it isn’t!) and the kids are otherwise occupied, you will usually find me working on a project or on the computer looking at all the wonderful projects everyone else has been posting(and usually adding a lot of them to my Need to Make Someday list).

Opening a shop on Etsy is a way for me to share my creations with others who may not have the time or inclination to make some of these items themselves.  This is something I have thought about for years and am excited to see it take shape.  I selected some of my favorite things to create and have listed them in the shop:  infant car seat covers, hair bows and hats, and some decorative items for the home.  My husband was a finish carpenter in his past life (you can see our fantastic closets on my blog) and I have enlisted him to help me with a few of the items he built for the new house (that have been making all my neighbors jealous)
 - my wall-mounted laundry drying rack and our bathroom towel hooks.

In her shop you'll find lots of handmade goodies!

Like this adorable {car seat cover}.

Ooh...so cute!  Check out this {newborn elfin hat}!

You know how much I love organization! So I'm really loving this!

  47. The wall mounted drying rack is a very good idea.
    My favourite item in her shop is the 'Feathered Fabric Rosette Hair Bow in Black, White, and Red'

  48. The countdown blogs would be good for my grandson to time his visits to me or going home time. He has a hard time knowing that 'we are going to visit' does not mean right now, this minute.
