My Son Inspires Me

My son Mason draws wonderful pictures and he also paints wonderful pictures. We came up with the idea to put his "crab" on a t-shirt and I tried screen printing for the first time. It was a lot of fun and a huge mess. So, we made them for our boys, and their uncles and their friends. They became a really big hit so I made more and listed them for sale on Etsy. We have sold a few and now I have found this site to make them.
It has worked out really well because they do the printing themselves and keep the inventory. I just had to come up with the pictures and set them up on the t-shirts. We have ordered a baseball shirt and a baseball cap so far and we really like the quality and the print.

Old Items Find New Purpose

We picked up a bunch of wonderful wallpaper sample books with gorgeous designs and have decided to incorporate them into our greeting cards. This was our first item in simple classic look with a lovely texture. We designed the whole card and earrings around the idea that a lot of people prefer good quality classic items. So we used swarovski crystals and sterling silver in our earring design and beautiful lines and textures in our greeting card. You can find our item for sale at

We had so much fun tonight making graduation cards. We hope we got them listed in time. I know it is cutting it close but I really wanted to make some and they turned out so good.

"Spring has Sprung" Craft Show

Here are some pictures we took at the first craft show we ever put together. It was such a learning experience. We had a lot of fun and a lot of stress. It was a great deal of work to coordinate but it was so worth it. We met wo many nice people and had a lot of fun getting our name out to the public.
Our First Craft Fair "Spring has Sprung" in Van Zandt WA

Here is some photos I uploaded of some of our work

The Ladies of Gwynns Gifts

My name is Heather and my Mom's name is Linda and we are what makes Gwynns Gifts. We LOVE to craft and have decided to turn our passion into our business. We currently feature lots of handmade greeting cards with handmade earrings on our website . This is a picture my son took of us working on a custom order at the kitchen table. We have since moved our operation (at least most of it) to our cabin. We share a passion for new adventures, new techniques, new items, new crafts, gardening, the great outdoors, new people and a zest for life.
