New Spot - Temptation Tuesday!

This week I am starting a new spot here on the blog....
 
It's called Temptation Tuesday!

In the past I regularly featured various manufactures & rubber stamp companies to keep everyone informed on not necessarily new but fun, different stamps and/or retailers were out there other than just the giant name brands.

Well, as you can imagine, the economy has really hurt these small businesses the past few years. Sadly as a result many of these smaller companies have closed down in the past couple years.   I know times are still tight but I thought it would be nice to give a boost to the individuals and small businesses that are still around.  If nothing more than to get their name out to people who never knew they were there.  If it can help one person stay in business a little bit longer than I'm all for it :)

So, who am I going to be featuring?  Well, anybody offering something fun to use in our art - Folks with an Etsy Store, any rubber stamp company, manufactures offering up fun, useful and unique crafting or art products.

Have an Esty Store, stamp company, mfg. or individual you'd like featured?  Just drop me a line with their name, website info and why you'd like to see them featured. 



Today I'm going to start off with a company that was referred to me by a very satisfied customer....
 
 
This is a small shop run by Jeffrey ~ offers up hand cut & sanded wood domino blanks that come with one, two or no holes.  Perfect for crafts, charms, jewelry and other projects.  These dominoes come in two sizes... standard - 1"x2" - 1/4" thick or mini's - 1-3/16"x9/16" - 3/16" thick. 
 
He also offers up blank "scrabble" type tiles as well not to mention a variety of other hand crafted wood items.
 
So, if you're looking for some great hand-crafted, made in the USA blank wood domino or scrabble tiles be sure to check out Smile Moon Woodworks!

  2. I love that you are supporting the small companies. I hate that we are losing so many! I wanted to email but couldn't so my suggestion is to feature Mary at http://www.hotpotatoes.com/
    I love her velvet and stamps for embossing!
