Great Holiday Gift Ideas~Hand Crochet Scarves~






Last week my sister Hannah told me she was going to learn how to crochet scarves...this week, she is onto Hand Crochet Fingerless Gloves....what's next??? Hand Crochet Beanie Hats! It never ceases to amaze how fast she picks things up! She just finished teaching me how to create a single stitch crochet scarf and this week I just finished my first double crochet scarf. There is no doubt that we love to create and this newest venture is fun and exciting...who knows where it will take us!







I just started listing the Hand Crochet Scarves in our little shop on Etsy:





What do we think makes a great scarf??? We look for yarn that is soft and comfortable along with colors that draw your eye and are popular for this season...bold jewel tones....modern blues and greens. Some of the scarves are chunky and make you want to wrap yourselves up in them and others are long and skinny giving you the versatility of wrapping it up several times around your neck or wearing it long over tees and blouses. Which ever style you choose...I have no doubt that you will fall in love with our selection. I've started listing some of these scarves and will be adding more daily.



If you are in the Cleveland, Chardon area....stop by our Christmas Boutique at The Hambden Grange, 9778 Old State Rd., Chardon, OH 44024. We will have all of our in stock inventory there from 12:30pm-5:00pm!



All of our in stock inventory is currently *ON SALE*...click on the link to our store above to find the coupon code to receive 10% OFF you entire purchase!

~Love Designs-Cleveland Magazine Publication~




What's new at Love Designs??? We are so excited to announce that our Love Designs Boutique found on Etsy is being featured in the November 2011, Cleveland Magazine addition on the Style page!!!!! Whoo hoo!!!! This is the first publication that we've made and we couldn't be more proud of the hard work that we've put into our designs and shops and so grateful for the opportunity!



In September, Hannah and I were approached by Cleveland Magazine about doing an interview for their 2011 November issue and within a week, we were doing the interview and photoshoot. Doing the interview was more difficult than I thought...you have to think fast and it was really hard and nerve wracking and fun and exciting all at the same time. We did the photo shoot at the Potomac Bead Company in Medina which is a two story, rustic loft style building filled with every bead imaginable. A Beader's dream! The photographs were taken by Dasha at Pazza Photography who was very professional, real, and made us feel very comfortable as you can see by the photo taken of us featured here in this blog. You can find out more about Dasha and her work at: http://www.pazzaphoto.com/.



Hannah and I are so grateful to have this opportunity with Cleveland Magazine and it left us wondering this question? What drew Cleveland Magazine to our shop?? Out of the hundreds of shops in the Cleveland area? There are so many talented artisans in the Cleveland but, they say it's was our signature flower which we incorporate into many of our designs. Check out the article and find out more by reading the article at http://clevelandmagazine.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?sid=E73ABD6180B44874871A91F6BA5C249C&nm=Article+Archives&type=Publishing&mod=Publications%3A%3AArticle&mid=1578600D80804596A222593669321019&tier=4&id=2AB68DCD01834E968555C54AC92E91CB

The Beach Glass Hunt is ON!





Spring is finally here...well, we think it's here. It's hard to tell since the weather here in NE Ohio has not been very Spring like! It's been unseasonably cold and rainy...hardly any sun...making it very challenging to get to the beach to find beach glass. We are very thankful and grateful that we have been spared from the horrific weather further South and our heart and prayers go out to everyone who lost loved ones and who were affected by the tornadoes and storms.


This past week, my sister and I had one day that the weather was beautiful...70+ degrees...sun and a nice breeze. So, we took advantage of it and ran to the beach with our family in tow! As we made our way down the path to the beach the sun felt wonderful, it wasn't too hot and not too cool. We made our way toward the sand dune and just as you past over the crest of it, the beach, sand, water, waves and a nice cool breeze! Perfect for searching for beach glass!!! We truly had a great time! The kids ran along the shoreline...some even attempted to get their feet wet...the water was bone chillingly cold!!! Everyone had a great time!!!

I absolutely love the beach. It is a place that I feel completely at peace and in my element. I feel closest to the Lord in these quiet moments on the beach...there is just such a peace and tranquility in the sound of the waves, the touch of breeze in your hair and on your face, the sound of laughter from the children running along the shore and the stillness of everything surrounding it. This is the reason we are so passionate about our beach glass designs.

In our search we did find quite a bit of beach glass, not as much as we have in previous years though. I'm beginning to wonder if the beach glass off the shores of Lake Erie will eventually become a rare thing to find...making these tiny little treasures hidden in the rocks and sand rare gems. For now, we are thankful for the pieces we do find and are continuing to design and create new designs for our Beach Glass Store on Etsy called Glass Sparrows.

Over the next few weeks you will find some of the glass we found this day in our new designs! In the meantime...please visit our little store on Etsy and let us know what you think of our designs and what you would like us to design in the future. Also, enjoy the pictures I've posted from our little adventure! My sister Hannah is expecting a little baby girl in August, but, that did not stop her from hitting the beach and finding beach glass!!! We will be sure to post more of our beach glass hunting adventures throughout this summer! Enjoy!

New Seaglass Jewelry Designs

http://www.etsy.com/listing/65305197/birdnest-deep-aqua-blue-seaglass

So, Hannah and I have had a wonderful Holiday and hope that you did also!!!! Now that the celebrating is over...it's time to re-focus and start designing some new jewelry! What better way to start than with our Seaglass Jewelry. We love designing beach glass jewelry because every piece is one of a kind and inspires us in different ways making each piece unique.




I just posted these two pieces featuring gorgeous Aqua Blue Seaglass found off the shore of Cape Cod Bay. These pieces are RARE and GENUINE pieces of seaglass. The first necklace is named Aqua Blue Leaf Seaglass Necklace and features a gorgeous piece of Seaglass with detail from the bottle it came from. We've hand drilled and handwrapped this piece creating a pendant. A whimsical, antiqued, Leaf Charm rests upon the the glass which is secured to delicate, crimped, Sterling Silver Chain. It's all about the details and this chain is lovely! The necklace is finished with a handwrapped Swarovski Crystal Pearl in Light Grey and a stunning Sterling Silver Swirl Toggle Clasp.




The second necklace we've designed features a RARE piece of Deep Aqua Blue seaglass also with detail from the bottle it came from. This piece is hand drilled and handwrapped creating a pendant. A lovely, hand patinaed, Bird Nest Charm rests upon the glass pendant which is secured to Brass Chain. A hand patinaed, Sparrow Charm Connector is secured to the Brass Lobster Clasp. As the clasp moves around the necklace...the bird is either flying toward the nest or away from it.




We are planning to create more Seaglass Designs over the next couple weeks and will continue to list them. To view our store gallery...click the link below!
