Simply Ashley makes contemporary fashions and accessories; from jewelry to clutches to clothing Ashley offers some great, truly fashionable products that make great gifts or great additions to your personal accessory collection. The “Simply [...]

BeaOrganized – Beads

Let’s get organized! I have found that one key to keeping a craft space clutter-free is to keep items that I do not use frequently, out of the way, organized and easy to access for when I do need it. One craft supply that I seem to have a lot of but don’t use too [...]

BeaInspired – A Lovely Little Lady

This week my mother asked me to make a card for a lovely little lady’s 80th birthday! Grandma Shirley, as she is known to all, is a sweet, little (I’m not kidding she is smaller than 5′ tall), wonderful lady. She has become somewhat of an adoptive grandmother to all the cousins of her actual [...]

Around the House – Gift Cards

This Around the House installment is unique. Instead of using an item around the house on the card, I wanted to make a companion for something you would find around the house…a gift card! Many people, including myself, frequent the gift card kiosk at their local grocery store every time a birthday, graduation, or holiday [...]

Sweet Tangerine’s creations are one of a kind, cut and sewn by the owner. The items are made from a variety of materials, including vintage fabrics, [...]

BeaInspired – Rubber Stamps

When I visit Michaels Arts & Crafts I can’t help but swing by their dollar bins and rummage through their $1 rubber stamps! I usually find at least one that I like and a few days ago I was there and found a stamp “For Someone Special.” I loved this stamp because it’s perfect for [...]

BeaOrganized – Ink Pads and Pens

Cigars are not as frequently used today as they were a decade or two ago. If you are lucky enough to know someone with a collection of cigar boxes they are willing to part with, or if you are a Craigslist frequenter, then you are in luck! My significant-other’s Mother passed along a few cigar [...]

Around the House – Crossword Puzzle

Keeping up with the Father’s Day cards, today I want to share the card that I made for my Mom to give her father. Papa (as we affectionately call him) is a simple man. He loves working with tools, his grandchildren, klondike, and crossword puzzles. This card is really simple and all that you need [...]

Happy Father’s Day!

We wanted to send a shout-out to all the Father’s of devoted crafters! I know my Dad has always been a HUGE supporter of mine and the one who really pushed me to get my site, my business, all of it up and running! Thanks Dad for your continual support. Happy Father’s Day!
