It’s Monday! The day of the week I usually hate, but not now, with the start of House Fenway’s Maker’s Monday. I have something to look forward to at the start of every week. Each Monday is “Maker’s Monday”. I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them.
Since starting House Fenway 2 years ago, it has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is no exception.
This Week’s Feature:
Hettie is the owner of Gam Gamz Handcrafted and is a master seamstress. Decorative pillow covers to infinity scarves, this girl definitely knows how to sew! Gam Gamz Handcrafted carries a wide range of fabric styles to match just about any decor and is always sourcing new prints to keep up with current trends. Hettie’s speciality, pillow covers, are the perfect inexpensive way to transform a room within minutes. And who doesn’t love that?
I have several of Gam Gamz Handcrafted pillow covers throughout my house, but my new buffalo-check cover is by far my favorite. It’s neutral without just being boring “Plain Jane” and can easily be incorporated with seasonal decor from Halloween to Christmas.
From now until Sunday September 30, 2018 use exclusive promo code MAKER18 and receive 15% off your purchase at Gam Gamz Handcrafted.

Happy Wednesday! I just wanted to share with you another fabulous Etsy shop I’ve come across. Oak & Co., located in Oregon and owned by the sweet Ali Waldron. It’s an up-and-coming shop, newly established in 2016. Ali creates the most adorable wood signs and adds such personal touches to each of her orders. You can definitely tell each sign is handmade with love. I have to say one of my favorite things about buying from many small businesses is the pride they take in their work and the added touches they put into each order.
Oak & Co. not only has great quality but outstanding customer service. I recently placed a custom sign order for a bridal show gift and Ali had it shipped out same week. Gotta love it!
Make sure to check out Oak & Co. She is definitely one to follow! ❤️
It’s Friday again, which means I have another maker to rave about! (Yay, my favorite!) This blog has given me such great opportunities to meet some of the most creative and talented makers around!
This week’s Friday Fav is a jewelry maker from Lodi, California – L.A. Osborn. Owned and operated by Lani Osborn, L.A. Osborn specializes in handmade jewelry with a personal touch. Some of Lani’s most popular sellers are her personalized hand formed initial cuffs, earrings and necklaces. Her designs are perfect worn alone, layered, stacked and even great for collecting. 😍 Of course, I had her make a bar necklace with my favorite saying, “Lasso the Moon”. The quality is excellent, her service was fantastic and it will definitely be a piece I will treasure for years to come. If you are looking for jewelry with a unique look or personal touch, definitely check out L.A. Osborn.
