I'm featuring something today that makes me super excited, even though it is totally non-food related...
As you know, the holiday season is fast approaching! To get you in the spirit a little bit early, I am offering a giveaway of handmade holiday ornaments from Red Marionette, a line of handmade felt toys, home and holiday decor, and accessories featuring a unique assortment of cute characters.
Red Marionette was developed in 2008 by a crafty redhead named Kelli (who happens to be my sister-in-law). Kelli was raised by a craft obsessed mother, went on to pursue a degree in Computer Animation, and has experience as a sculptor, painter, and manager in Themed Construction. After discovering Etsy, she decided that others may enjoy the fruits of her creativity, so she started Red Marionette. Kelli designs, cuts, stitches, photographs, communicates and runs pretty much everything in the online shop. Kyle, her husband (and my darling little brother who isn't so little anymore), is the in personal sales guru for shows, design consultant, quality control tester and general man-cheerleader for the company. He's even been known to pick up a scissors, needle, and thread from time to time. I love that my little brother married such a creative, driven, and intelligent woman (and she's darn cute too). He's got good taste. ;)
In the last two years, Red Marionette has exploded with popularity. In addition to her thriving Etsy business and writing the Red Marionette Blog, Kelli is a regular on the craft show circuit in her home of central Florida. All of this is in addition to her day job as a fine arts instructor at a local university. She's one busy lady!
The most recent development for Red Marionette is that Kelli's work was just published in Better Home and Garden's Christmas Ideas Magazine for 2010! Wow! The magazine features her darling pocket-peeper stockings, which are available for sale on her Etsy shop and are sure to be in high demand this Holiday season! The magazine is available at any store that sells Better Homes & Gardens, from Target to your local grocer or book store.
To celebrate Red Marionette's success, Kelli is offering up three of her handmade character ornaments to three lucky winners! These charming ornaments work perfectly on a Christmas tree, but can also be used to jazz up your rearview mirror or the corkboard in your office if you do not celebrate Christmas or want to keep the cuteness around all year long. Wherever you hang it, it will brighten your day! Each one is made from Eco-Spun felt (made from post-consumer recycled plastic), hand-cut, and hand-stitched.
Clara, Randolph, and Eric. Don't you just want them all!?
