Happy Friday! So, today I am featuring my very talented and creative brother, the creator of Finished Goods. I guess you can say that creativity runs in the family 🙂 Anyway, my brother is known for his awesome sense of fashion. It’s no wonder that he is helping other men to be fashionable like him! So, here’s a little more about the man behind Finished Goods…

What is your craft?

FINISHED GOODS (BESPOKE LAPEL FLOWERS FOR MEN and WOMEN)

How long have you been doing this?

I have always had a unique fashion sense and have always been at the forefront of setting trends. I decided to step out about 8 months ago and create something to add an extra flair to the suited gentleman.

Where do you look for inspiration?

There are various places I glean inspirations from. Whether it comes from colors, fabrics or a particular mood, I can become inspired. Building a certain style can bring forth inspiration.

What is your current crafting obsession?

Different fabrics/textures. For instance, buttons, pins, and industrial pieces.

What are your future plans for your crafts?

I am currently working on a website where people can purchase Finished Goods. Also, I am in the process of unveiling a Spring/Summer promotion of lapel flowers.

Where can people find you on the web?

Currently, I am able to be seen on Instagram (@ctheGOODS)

Didn’t I tell you that he was creative? I absolutely love these lapel flowers. My favorite has to be the ‘stash lapel. It’s trendy and super cute. Although I don’t wear suit jackets, I will definitely be rocking one of the Finished Good’s lapel flowers.

Party Pastries – Friday Feature

Posted on Updated on

There’s nothing like having crafty friends! Today I am featuring one of my dearest friends and fellow crafter – PARTY PASTRIES! Her sweet treats are so creative! My jaw drops every time she posts a new picture of her creations! Let’s learn a little more about PARTY PASTRIES:

What is your craft?
My craft is baking and planning special events. I own a baking business and event services/planning company by the name of Party Pastries.

How long have you been doing this?
I’ve always loved to bake cakes and cookies for as long as I can remember. I officially created Party Pastries in September of 2010 when I found out that my daughter was allergic to peanuts and eggs.

Where do you look for inspiration?
There are many people and places that I look to find inspiration. There are so many talented bakers out there who just blow my mind with their creations. I also find inspiration from my family and friends. From someone sending me a picture of a cool cake, cupcakes or just a simple conversation with a friend about different ways to make Party Pastries unique and set apart from everyone else.

What is your current crafting obsession?
Right now I would have to say cake pops! Although I specialize in a variety of baked goods, cake pops seem to be the most popular item. Cake pops are very time consuming to make with all the fine details that goes into it. However, I find that with cake pops you can make just about any design. I just love how something so small and bite size can still be a huge hit and versatile!

What are your future plans for my crafts?
I hope to one day own a bakery and down the line have a few of them in different areas.  I’m currently in the process of launching my website. I want my customers to be able to place orders directly online from the website.

Where can people find you on the web?
For the time being you can find me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/PartyPastries
And Instagram:
