Boutique Scrapbook

Here is a recap of our day, along with contact info for the women who participated in case you need more things:

Saturday, November 20th was bright and crisp at 199 Lakeview Lane, and many friends, family, and neighbors joined us throughout the day at Paula's beautiful home.

Delightful cards were for sale from Kirstin Larson, who flew all the way from Seattle to join in the fun. 

She also designed our invitaton and bag tags.  So talented!  You can order more things from her by going here:

Jean Ernst was selling her wonderful handbags. 

I bought one to use for my knitting, and the quality of the construction is superb.  Not to mention just right pockets, both inside and out.  She also had bags for little girls, and cozy hat and scarf sets that went home with several lucky customers.

Jean's bags are always available for sale at Wild Rumpus in Linden Hills, or you can contact her directly at

A fun  find put smiles on many faces-fur topped socks! 

Sandy Reding was on hand to keep us fashionable in the snow.  If you didn't buy enough, you can contact her at

The ultra creative photos of Dawn Karas could be made into any combination of letters-and she framed them for you while you shopped! 

What a great wedding gift, or for any occasion.  If you have the perfect person in mind, contact her at

Sally Borgen had her own creative corner-graced with whimsical paintings, aprons, pillows, and cards. 

You can find her at Junk Bonanza each fall,

and if you want to find out where else she will be, or to order more of her creations, you can contact her at

Uniquely creative ornaments could be found throughout the room, birds made from wool, or wood and natural moss, or German glass glitter! 

Tiny mouse ballerinas twirled across a tree, and glittered walnuts were ready to hold secret notes, treasures, or beautiful earrings. 

Paula, our gracious hostess, had all kinds of imaginative things for sale.  If you need more of her things, you can contact her at

I little bird (perhaps a magpie?) told me she also has some of her things at Wild Rumpus.

Alyssa Thomas of Penguin and Fish joined us as well. 

She had everything from hand drawn tshirts for kids, stuffed kitties, embroidery patterns and kits, and fun patterns.

Krista O'Malley brightened up the room with her holiday paper cones filled with homemade caramels

 - two gifts in one!  She also had adorable photo or card holders made from wooden spools, and beautiful necklaces.

Gorgeous bracelets crafted from crocheted glass beads and natural stones were made by Margaret Oltmans. 

Absolutely stunning, and beautiful craftsmanship.   If you wish you had picked one up, you can contact her at .

along with cashmere scarves and her signature Love Lids.
