"F" is for Fashionista

In the post I did about the Handmade Festival that was held on May 8th at the Central Library, I mentioned a woman named Amber Vroom, and how much I loved the cards she made.  I am envious of those who, a) have creative ideas like this, b) have the skill and time to actually produce a unique handcrafted work of art.  I had asked her to make me one featuring the letter "F" (for Forest City Fashionista, of course).  Today I picked up the card, and I love it!  As you can see in the photo above, she incorporated a dictionary page with the definition of "fashion", buttons, and a sleek and stylish dame right out of the 60's.  I've custom ordered some other cards from her, and if you would like to own your very own Amber Vroom creation (or give one as a gift), you can visit her etsy shop
