Serendipity-Crafts Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)



First off I want to thank Elizabeth & Hugh Henry for letting me host this awesome review and giveaway here on my blog.

Serendipity-Crafts (http://www.serendipity-crafts.com) offer shoppers beautiful one of a kind personalized gifts! I just love their selection of personalized plates and they are a wonderful gift for any occasion. Great for a baby shower gift for that new mother or as a wedding shower gift for the lucky newly weds!!! They defiantly have something for everyone!

I want to also share a little bit about Elizabeth & Hugh Henry (Taken from their about us portion on their site):

Elizabeth and Hugh met in 1978 while attending high school in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. They both went onto the same college, to study graphic design.

Elizabeth started making and selling her crafts in 1993. Hugh went on to work in the design industry. In 2001, they serendipitously re-met after 23 years and they formed Serendipity Crafts in the fall of 2002.

Today, Hugh has a creative full time job as a senior graphic designer. Elizabeth now works full time on the business. In the evenings and on weekends they both get crafty! Three times per year, they also participate in local craft show and sales.

The design, introduction and maintenance of this beautiful web site is thanks to Hugh. Hugh also designs 99% of their marketing materials and craft show signage.

Elizabeth does 99% of the painting however, she has been busy teaching Hugh, so that she can take a break every now and then.

Both Elizabeth & Hugh come up with new product ideas, design, paint, craft, wrap, package, tag, promote, market and haul the crafts which they sell together. Their skill set is perfectly complimentary.

It is their "retirement" dream to run Serendipity Crafts from a log home on a lake, and to go into town once or twice a week to ship orders.

They pride themselves on being able to provide you with personal customer service. They love what they do and love being able to craft for you! It is their aim to produce a unique, quality product and hope that you enjoy it for years to come.

Here are just a few of my favorites from their site…..


I really love this Reindeer Treats Personalized plate! This would be wonderful for children to put their cookies to Santa or for the Reindeer on this Christmas Eve! I also think it’s so wonderful that you are able to put your child’s name or any kind of personalization on these beautiful hand panted plates. You can buy this online HERE for $30.00 and give that someone special a very unique and special treat this Holiday Season!


And of course who can forget about Baby’s First Christmas! This would make the perfect addition to your tree this year if you have a little one celebrating a very, very important event! You can get your own HERE for only $6.00 and make sure you have that special memory for life.


Isn’t this family personalized Christmas Wishes plate just too cute!! Wouldn’t it be a perfect gift this Holiday season for grandparents or parents? Get yours HERE for $30.00



Wouldn’t this just be a darling gift for a new mother! I would have loved to receive a gift like this when my son was born! So if you have a new addition to the family or a friend needs a special new gift for a special new bundle of joy you can get a lovely plate like this one HERE for $40.00


Alright so everyone has a signature book at their weddings but what about a guest signature plate? This would be a perfect keepsake from your very special day that you could hang in the special place in your home to be reminded of your friends and family’s blessings!! What a very special treasure to give to the new couple you can get your very own HERE for $75.00

And there are even more wonderful plates and crafts available on the website
