Granola Crowns...

Our daughter-in-law, Jess is an artist. She creates the most wonderful watercolor and oil paintings, and now has a new venture. With two young daughters, she and our son are always busy, but she's found time to make something new and then make it available to others.
 You can always find her busy in her studio, as her girls sit at their own little work stations making art of their own. Right now, her creative outlet is to make colorful felt and fabric crowns for children.

They're suitable for boys or girls and are extremely well-made. She uses beautiful patterned ribbons to embellish the bottom edge of the crown, and the top center peak of the crown sports a fabric-covered button or felt shape (like a heart or bird).
They're perfect for a special party, but they also make children feel special every day of the week. I mean, really. Who wouldn't love to feel like royalty whenever they chose?
You can contact Jess through her Etsy shop, or her email (shown on her business card in the above photo) for pricing or more information. If you're in the Cedarburg, Wisconsin area, her wares are also for sale at the Cedarburg Toy Company. (I've made "Etsy shop" above and the store in Cedarburg active links, so all you have to do is click on them to visit.) I bet you know a little someone who would love to have their own crown!

***I'm writing this post strictly out of love and will receive no compensation (other than hugs) for my endorsement.

UPDATE: Jess asked me to thank all of you for your comments on yesterday's post. She will be listing crowns for boys and girls in her Etsy shop right after Labor Day, so please check back. You can also friend "Granola" on Facebook for her latest updates and newest creations.

Too cute for little girls and boys. I wonder here she got the crown idea from?

Hey Donna, no compensation? not even a pie? Well I don't know about that deal..:(
Just joshing, the crowns look so darned cute and I did go over to her Etsy site but there was nothing showing right now so I will check back later as I love to see other artist's work.
Have a fun-filled day!

Good luck to your daughter-in-law on her new venture!! They are awesome!

Createology said...

Great looking crowns and I really like the idea that she is in her studio making these and that the girls are there with her making art. A true family venture...especially when Grandma does the marketing. ;o)
Happy Wednesday already...

How sweet of you to tell the world about her creative venture! They're darling!

Ms. C. has a crown that she INSISTED on wearing EVERY SINGLE TIME she left the house. LOL I guess we convinced her she really WAS a real princess. *wink*

I'll have to send you a photo of her in it...what a hoot!

Hugs,
Rett

Those are adorable!!!! And you're right, who doesn't want to wear a crown now and then? Does she make them for Grandma's too? :))

Shirley said...

Hi Donna, Hugs are great payment when they come from special people. I hope Tag makes the calendar. I think that would be great. Have you heard from our friend Shell, since the hurricane? Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
