Handmade Holidays - CreativeKates now w/Giveaway!

Welcome to Day 3 of Handmade Holidays at Pinkie and The Bean.  All this week I am featuring handmade sellers with great items for your holiday shopping.

Remember, you can still enter my other giveaways for the remainder of this week.  The Gaddy Nipper Crayons, recycled crayon creations, giveaway is here, and the Sweet.Bee.Bowtique giveaway is here.

Today I am shining the spotlight on CreativeKates.  This is an Etsy store that is run by a mom and daughter duo.  Katie is 14 years old and is a huge part of the design and creative process at CreativeKates.  They shared some information about how they got started with me.  I think this is a fabulous story and an inspiration to moms and daughters all over.  If I am able to get Bean to do anything with me when she is 14, I will be amazed and grateful.

"My daughter and I started the shop in June of this year. We started selling our jewelry at local fairs and craft bazaars and then discovered Etsy and have been selling ever since. My daughter is 14 years old and her name is Katie. Katie developed the banner and store name CreativeKates. She also is the photographer and has created all of the jewelry listed except for the vintage repurposed pieces. Katie's favorite piece is the Pink Sherbert Rose Ring and mine is the Pink Lemonade Ring. We enjoy making jewelry together and living here on our farm."

CreativeKates is a unique collection of handmade and repurposed jewelry.  They currently have a Holiday Sale going on buy 3 rings get 3 bobby pins free.  If anyone would like a special custom order for your bridal party, birthday party or any special event please convo them on Etsy.
