Featuring Handmade: Crosses by Claudia


(Above is the "Noel Cross", click HERE to check it out!)



I got the chance to interview Claudia Sullins of Crosses by Claudia.

She handcrafts, all by hand the most beautiful and elegant crosses I've ever seen and anything is customizable! I got the opportunity to review the Baby Cross which can also be customized to add a picture of your little darling in the center of it.

She has the option to make Memory Crosses, if you have any jewelry that was handed down to you from your own or your mother's, father's, grand mother's, etc.. collection she can make it into your cross as a treasure to be treasured!

Not only does she handcraft jeweled/seashelled crosses she is also starting a wood collection.

The opportunities are endless and this will definately be a great decorative addition to your home, something as sweet and charming as a custom made cross!

Be sure to check out her other shop for the Pet Lover in you! She has many cute jewelry items for your cat, dog, etc.. Cookie's Doggie Jewelry


(Isn't the Ice Crystal Doggie Necklace, just too cute?)


Special offers over at Cookie's Doggie Jewelry is free shipping until December 24th, free gift wrap and card! So make sure you don't forget your furry friend this Holiday Season! She has even added "Human Jewelry"! Be sure to get yourself some real *bling* for you and your pet!

Why'd you start your business?

The Lord led me to this. I have always been artistic. Writing poetry, drawing, writing stories as a child, making pillows, purses, painting, all things creative. I had my three daughters, and spent most of my time raising them and being involved in what ever they were involved in.

My girls are now grown and I am single again. I recently lost my job due to the home industry, and need something to do. To save my sanity I turned once again to my creative side. I am using my love of the cross, and my love of creating beautiful things. Now if I can just start making some money doing this it will be perfect!!

Your favorite part of the holiday?

100% being with my family. I come from a large Catholic family of 44 members. I have 5 sisters! Christmas Eve, my entire life, has been the highlight of each year. We have so much fun, and all love each other so much. We are also fortunate to still have both my parents, so each year becomes more precious.

Anything extra you'd like to add? * I am so glad this election is over!!!!
