Today I have something really sweet made by Puzzled & Polished! They make things with love “To help raise funds for Walk Now for Autism Speaks and to help raise awareness for Autism and all of the children and families who are blessed with this gift.” So refreshing and such a great cause! I was given the opportunity to review a hand-made item from Puzzled & Polished and I chose an ornament. I have since taken my tree down, but let me show you the beautiful ornament I was sent.
It’s so uniquely shaped. I have no other ornaments like this, and I find it absolutely gorgeous. I hand-made my son’s 1st and 2nd Christmas ornaments, as well, but I love the finish on the ornament – so professional. You cannot feel the glitter because it’s absolutely smooth. They customize their pieces as per the customer’s taste. I gave my tree’s colors, so that they could create something that would fit right in with my ornaments. It is so beautiful and I really will cherish this ornament.
Here’s a little more information on the husband/wife team of Puzzled & Polished:
Cristian is a smart, rambunctious and silly little guy who was given the gift of PDD-NOS on July 11, 2011. He has given so much to us and we want to give back.
Puzzled and Polished was created to combine all of our true loves. For Mandy, it’s nail polish and crafting. For Blake, it’s social media and design. For both of us, it’s advocating for the littlest love of our life, Cristian.
All items will either be $4 or $8.00 and each number has a meaning. $4 represents April, Autism Awareness month. $8 represents the 1 in 88 children diagnosed with Autism.
Shipping will be $2.50 for the first item and $.50 for each additional.
All proceeds will go to Autism Speaks via a donation on behalf of Cristian’s Cruisers for the Milwaukee Walk Now for Autism Speaks. The only “profit” for me is new materials to work with (not polish) and I will be using coupons and deals whenever possible.
With any purchase of 2 items, you will receive a handcrafted puzzle piece pin. The pins will also be available to purchase for $1.00 each.
