Child's Play total and New Piece

First, we wanted to let everyone know how the fundraiser for Child's Play went: We raised $20 for Children's hospitals! Thanks to everyone who helped!

Also, Hippybeads and LidDesigns did an informal Retro Handmade team mini-challenge.
LidDesigns made a Beautiful Blue Wintery Pillbox Hat and Hillary made a great bracelet with snowflakes:

We hope you enjoyed the beautiful creations and we'll see you in the new year!

Quick Gift Guide

This might be the most unusual collection of things we've seen, but it's also one of the most incredible. They would make amazing gifts for people with a penchant for the extravagant, eccentric, kitchy and oddly cute (like our artist).

The first entry in our gift guide is a computer case mod made with an actual antique radio cabinet by Abraham's Craftworks.

Next we have a purse made from vintage, hard to find "paint by numbers" fabric by Squirellicious.

This gorgeous Victorian Collar might be the most unique take on a scarf we've ever seen, and it's so skillfully made by Falling Leaf Designs.

Here's a great Funky Tiki Lounge Mosaic Mirror from Gemeni Moon Mosaics.

Next up is this beautifully Bizarre tech gadget: a Steampunk Copper USB Flash Drive
from QA Create.

Here's an Adorable retro-cute Pendant made with a vintage Christmas Card by That Old Blue House.

These Last two are not work safe and not for the easily offended, but quite beautiful in their own right.

First, we have the Anatomical Venus Treasure Box, a box featuring a very unique painting by My Good Babushka.

Second, We have a gift bag featuring pin-up style holiday retro-porn made by Rosy Red Designs.

We hope you enjoyed our picks and hopw you have a great holiday season!

We apologize for this being late, but Hillary wanted to be sure to show off her Halloween costume and mention the talented individuals and great sellers that went in to making her "Coraline" costume a success.

For her sweater, Hillary Went to a Local Thrift store and bought a blue sparkly sweater. Then She ordered some custom made silver stars from Lavdender Lady Bug. She glued them on with fabric glue and voila!

For her hair, she hair, she went to her amaing hairdresser Angie at fringe in Birmingham, AL and had her usually purple streaks turned blue.

She got AmGlam Creations to make her some great dragonfly clips.

To finish it all off, she checked out Ebay and bought some great boots from jag319.

Hillary had a blast at Halloween and loved everything so much (including the blue hair) that she keeps finding reasons to wear things again. We hope you enjoyed the pictures!
