Even if you don’t live in Michigan, you can still enjoy all the handmade crafts from over 175 different artisans at Hand Made in Michigan. They offer accessories to woodworking and everything in between. The site reminds me of ETSY but it only features crafters from Michigan. I received products from two of the crafters: Lush Wreath Works and Dawn’s Metal Designs.
I received a Zinnia Wreath in an Ivory color from Lush Wreath Works. This wreath is the softest wreath I have ever felt. Three yards of fleece fabric goes into one of these wreaths. The fleece is cut by hand into delicate petal shapes and then hand-tied onto a 4-rail wire wreath form. I went with Ivory so I would be able to use it in any room of the house. They offer 14 different solid colors or they can create a custom wreath for you, maybe with your favorite sports teams or teacher’s gift with school colors. There are also four different sizes of wreaths to choose from or a heart shape.
Plus through June 30, 2013, Lush Wreath Works is offering FREE Shipping through the mi-made.com shop!
I also received this cute Hand Stamped Baseball Mom Necklace from Dawn’s Metal Designs. The chain is 24 inches in length so it does hang low, but you can request it be made shorter. I do wish the necklace clasp was a regular locking clasp, I am afraid that it will come undone. The chain that came with it has the little ball that locks into the little holder (see middle picture). The disk that says Baseball Mom is about the size of a quarter. You can also get Softball Mom instead of Baseball if you want. All three of my boys play baseball so I will be wearing this a lot!
