BeaInspired – Cricut “Straight from the Nest”

Although I have learned to create SVG files that work directly with my Cricut machine, does not mean that I can resist some of the great cartridges from Provocraft! I recently bought the Straight from the Nest cartridge at Joann’s. What I like most about this cartridge was the variety it offered. Not only are […]

BeaLocal – LoveStitched

Today’s featured site falls a little far from our local network, but is right in the middle of our professional network! LoveStitched was actually one of the first blog to feature BeaOriginal on their blog!  We were so thrilled about it, and decided that it was about time for us to return the favor. LoveStitched […]

Around the House – Gift Bag

Yesterday we hosted a baby shower for long-time BeaOriginal supporter Donya. At the end of the event there were gift bags strewn about the living room. One gift bag had been taped, and when opened, torn. The bag was rendered ‘unusable’ and destined for the trash can when I thought, wait a minute! There, is […]

BeaLocal – Amigurumiums

I know…when I first read the name of this store I had to do a double take. This might help: amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small animals. And this store has about the cutest crocheted little animals you have ever seen! Next week we are throwing a baby shower for devoted […]

BeaLocal – Twirling Tree

It isn’t too much of a stretch to assume that people who love to craft, have a creative side. I know many crafters that also do some form of personal art on the side. Today I want to introduce you to Twirling Tree out of Chico, California. Twirling Tree uses a combination of new, vintage, […]

BeaInspired – The Men in Your Life

Yesterday I was inspired by some of the men in my life. It just so happens that my brother-in-law, father and grandfather all have their birthdays within a span of 6 days. So yesterday was the day to sit down and create some cards! I always struggle when making cards for men. The color palette […]

BeaLocal – Flip. Skip. Jump!

Flip. Skip. Jump! I absolutely love the name of this store out of Redding, California. But I don’t think their motto “Hip Stuff for Kids” does them justice, I’m not a kid and I love their products! It should be “Hip stuff for everyone!” Stationary wraps and knitting needle rolls seem like the kind of […]

BeaLocal – Redding Handmade

This week I am extending a little beyond the locality of Chico, CA to share with you Redding Handmade. I found Redding Handmade by visiting www.etsy.com/shop_local.php. Redding is about two hours north of Chico, and I have some family that lives there. Redding Handmade offers not only paper-based products but also several fabric and texture […]

BeaLocal – TheDancingDahlia

What can I say? There are some great jewelry makers here in Chico, California. There are so many wonderful choices on Etsy, it is such a difficult choice each week to choose who to spotlight! This week is no different, but TheDancingDahlia really caught my eye. Moderately priced and wonderfully designed, the store only has […]
