Barbara A Ryan

I am an artist by trade, and I love creating unique and fun works of art! My goal, as an artist, is to create each and every piece of work to the best of my abilities! I strive for perfection, and Want each and every customer to be happy with their purchase! If you are not for any reason, just let me know, and we will work it out. 
I create each and every banner to be one of a kind designs. On occasion there will be some Holiday Banners done in multiples. I hand paint my recycled chipboard squares, as well as the letters. I will often do some hand stenciling, some stamping, and some illustrations directly onto the cards! I will use scrapbook papers if they fit into my design, and I do love to add some embellishments to jazz things up! I offer a unique style to the Banners, something different, created by an artist! These are Banners and floorcloths, and gifts of art that you will be proud to display in your home, or to give as gifts! My Wedding Banners are elegant and sophisticated, but I will do a Rustic, or Beach style at your request. I pride myself on being able to create something for your Special Day that reflects who you both are...Just ask me, and Ill let you know if I can do it! 
My floorcloths are very eco-friendly! I use organic canvas, and water based soy and acrylic paints and sealants. They are sturdy and durable, lasting for years and years of use! I can design just about anything on a floorcloth! They can match your furniture patterns, wallpaper designs, colors of any room in your home, the ideas are endless! They also make great and unique gifts of Art To Walk on! 

She made this beautiful banner for me!

I think this picture perfect dessert table is my

 very favorite part. 

Cake, cake balls, cupcakes, peach shaped sugar cookies, chocolate lolli pops and a beautiful cake

in matching hues of peach really speak to how wonderful

 this day was. 

Introducing NecessiTees:

NecessiTees is a wonderful site! 

She was kind enough to give me

 24 Cupcake Pick Toppers for Kate's wedding shower. 

They really made the tops of the cupcakes standout! 

So unique and special to make

 the dessert bar standout even more!!

Introducing Talking Twine and Trim:

Talking Twine and Trim donated these

 amazingly cute bags!! 

These peach polka treat bags are the 

perfect little way to send 

your guest off with a favor. 

They were 5x7 in size and come 1 dozen to a package.

 She sent me 48 of them! 

They  were a great addition to Kate's shower!

I used these cute bags at the dessert bar to collect the extra goodies for our guests!

Introducing  The Stringery:

We are a small Etsy shop that 
sells all things string and ribbon.
 I started this business in February 
2012 to fulfill my need for that extra
 bit of something on my layout.

I love the way Bakers Twine looks on 

packages, cards and scrapbook layouts 
and I found myself reaching for it often. 
I started my collection with just a few 
colors and it quickly grew from there.

I carry the original twine, 

Divine Twine and The Twinery 
colors in the shop as well as some basic ribbon.
 Each month, I try to add a few new 
colors or styles. We just got back from
 the Summer Craft and Hobby show 
where we found brand new ribbon to bring back.

Our small Design Team is active

 on Facebook (
/pages/The-Stringery/355343371150786?ref=hl) where
 we share our ideas with everyone.
 If you share our love of all things 
string, I'd love to see your creations. 
Post them on our Facebook wall or 
send an email to the shop email 
and we'll share them with the 
rest of our string friends!

The Stringery has a super cute shop!
She was so generous enough to offer this
 super cute peach twine!!

We used the twine for the mason jars at for the silverware!

I was looking for a super cute sign for 

Kate's shower stating how many days 
left until the big day.
SOOO let me introduce Lane Love Design!

She made me this adorable sign for

 Kate's shower!! Super cute right??

I decided to put together a cute basket

 for my sister-in-law as part of her gift! 
My husband and I got her this off of her registry            but wanted to do something that was a little bit more sentimental to her!


Double B Embroidery 

She made this super cute cosmetic bag 

for Kate for her big day with her new 
initials on it! I figured this would 
be perfect for her wedding day and her honeymoon! 


She put together this beautiful 

off the shoulder sweatshirt for 
Kate's big day! We figured this 
would be a great item for her to 
wear why she was putting her makeup
 on and getting her hair done or even 
for her to wear on her honeymoon on chilly nights!

A Safari Baby Shower

Almost the exact moment my sister-in-law Amanda announced she’d be having a baby, I had several baby showers planned in my head. This is the first grandchild on my husband's side of the family and we couldn't be happier!! So me and my other sister-in-law got right to it and started to plan! Amanda decided to have a jungle themed baby room so we thought why not and keep the theme for her shower too!

I had some amazing bloggers contribute to this shower and first want to thank them for their creativity and awesome hearts! Please stop by their shops and blogs! Let them know Simple as 1-2-3 sent you!

Hi there my name is Autumn and I'm a mom of 2 adorable babees! :-) I decided to start Babee Cakes Boutique after my mother-in-law asked me to make a diaper cake for my sister-in-law's baby shower. The response was great and it was just the push I needed to open my own shop. Don't let the name fool you, I also make custom wall nursery letters. I started making those when I got pregnant with my daughter and loved the way they turned out. I started gifting them to friends and now I get to share them with all of you. Everything from diaper cakes to nursery wall letters are customizable, just contact me and I will do my best to create anything you are looking for!

AllThingsParty is an online Etsy store that sells baby and bridal shower party games. The store was started in January 2013 and offers creative and beautifully designed games to go with any party theme.

LOVED this game! It wasn't your 'typical' cheesy baby shower game! It was super cute and fun! We had five people who got 100% correct! We did a tie breaker! Who ever was able to "guestimate" Amanda's waist wins! One of her friends got it spot on!

I wanted a super cute sign to hang up to represent how many days left she had until she "popped" soo...
