Happy birthday, Jennifer!

Birthday wishes go out today to Jennifer of Tudor Designs. Jennifer makes a wide array of items for her shop, including magnets, stickers, other paper products, clocks, and night lights! There's definitely something for everyone at Tudor Designs!

It's hard to pick just one thing to showcase, but I like these magnets for a bright splash of color on an otherwise plain fridge or filing cabinet. So stop by Jennifer's shop today to check out the variety, and while you're there, wish her a very happy birthday!

Happy birthday, Nora!

Many birthday wishes go out today to Nora, of Many Faces of Eve and The Lyre of King David. Nora makes beautiful jewelry creations, focusing on Judaica in her second shop.

I'm always surprised to see purple and green together, as I think I'm one of the few people in the world who really loves that color combination. Looks like I might not be the only one, though! Check out the rest of the jewelry in both of Nora's shops, and wish her a happy birthday while you're there!

Happy birthday, Samantha!

Blow out the candles and make a wish! Today is Samantha's, of Witts Wicks and Knits, birthday! Like her shop name implies, Samantha makes candles and knits, along with assorted other items.

Personally, I think this very vanilla candle would be to die for, but check out Samantha's shop and see what else catches your attention! While you're there, wish her a very happy birthday!
