Gift Tip

I've been meaning to blog about this particular tip for a while now, but kept procrastinating for no good reason. As it turns out, procrastination can be a good thing because since the holiday gifting season is upon us the timing couldn't be more perfect!

My good friend, Melanie, is the craftiest, most creative person I know. She now has a personal business creating custom, one-of-a-kind aprons. Seriously, you have to check out her work! Melanie has both a blog and an etsy site to show off her wonderful creations. Melanie selects and coordinates the fabrics herself and genuinely wants each of her customers to be completely happy with their selection.

And remember, Aprons make a perfect gift for: Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, Mother's Day, Birthdays, Hostess gift or simply just because. I bought one before Easter and it's completely adorable and I love it. If you purchase an apron from her, a portion goes to help feed families in need thru Saddleback Pantry.

So, go take a peek at Melanie's work. I don't see much holiday stuff up right now, but feel free to contact her and let her know what you would be interested in. And let her know that I sent you over her way . . .


  1. Thanks for sharing Chris. FYI - I'm on Facebook "Sew Sassy Retro Aprons" where I always post my newest creations. Many times people tell me they want it from there and it never makes it to Etsy.

    And if you do buy an apron from me; please mention Chris' name. Because when 5 of her friends buy an apron, Chris gets one free. Did I happen to mention I have darling teacher aprons? :)

    Thanks again Chris and thanks for those that look me up.

  2. I love the apron!

  3. Cute apron! I'm a bit of an apron-whore...love them...especially vintage styled ones. Heading over to her etsy now :-)

  4. I thought I posted yesterday, but maybe not. I love the aprons and am definitely going to get some for gifts. I found her on FB and already emailed her! Thanks!
