Valentines Day is sneaking up fast. I have hit
most of the names on my list but I have a couple names
left and not much of a budget left to do it with. Do you
know how hard it is finding the perfect item when you
checkbook has a negative balance and your husband
has confiscated all the credit cards except for the one
you have stashed for a rainy day. Oh, and it also rains
a lot so there isn't a lot of balance there either! Hey,
it is not my fault most of the really good shoe sales
happen on rainy days. But I still have the problem of
getting one of my good friends a gift AND her teenage
daughter. I wish I could just go around with a blank
note pad and flip out IOU notes at will. Then I would
get them something really nice. Till then I will............
wait a minute, I forgot about a product review I just
did for this enchanting little place called Jesse Jane's.
She has a shop on Etsy that has some adorable hand
crafted items that are perfect for gifts and ( ahem ) at
her prices I can even afford one for me too! I have to
face the facts here, there is a 99% chance the boys
are going to forget and I am forced to take matters into
my own hands. At least then I get something I really like!
Jessie Janes does some one of a kind, precious
little pieces she hand crafts out of Scrabble tiles of all
things. She takes a tile and her increadble talent and
paints them with delectable little designs that make your
heart swoon. She has a truck load of styles and as if that
wasn't enough if you don't see something you like (ya, RIGHT!)
she also offers custom creations. Jessie takes pride in what
she does and it shows with her eye for detail and intracate
designs. Her prices are so reasonable it makes her pendants
perfect for not only valentines day gifts but I thought they
would be spectacular party favors for parties, perfect for
that "Oh my, what do I get my child's teacher?" gifts and
so ever. She even has combo packs where you can pick
at set amount and get and even better deal. I think they
are so percious and a perfect complement for every day
where you can grab a bunch and match any outfit you are
wearing. Chains, Bracelets and Keychains or Hairpieces,
they just make the perfect acsessory. I was also thinking
they would make a great funraiser item for your child's
groups where they can sell a product people will not only
enjoy it won't go straight to their hips like those dang
Candy bars and Cookies I can't seem to order in a reasonable
amount. Jessie even has Wedding themed Tiles you can
use for Favors and Gifts if you are a budget or not!
Next year all my Stockings are going to have some as
stuffers for even Andy would get a kick out of a keychain
he can change with his teenage moods!
Jessies bulk prices make them a downright steal
and she always has specials and clearance items that
are a perfect way to stock up for the next year. I loved
her retro tile and her Valentines Day selection is out
of this world. I think the Candy Cane Hearts was my
Favorite for her work is so detailed and awe inspiring
it almost looks 3 dimensinal and could pop right out
at you. If it looked any more real I might be trying to
eat it! All the metal in her tiles is sterling silver and
adds that delicate touch and really makes some of
her more femanine tiles shine. Andrew loves the
Celtic Tiles for he is a fan and if you can think of an
occasion Jessie already has a tile to celebrate it!
With over 345 tiles in her normal inventory I think she
has you covered! Right now she even has a Gift special
going on where is you buy 3 you get 1 free! It just
doesn't get any better! Oh wait, it might, you guys
go get your 3 and send the free one too me!

away to one of my readers too! She is going to let
