Ashley Gabby Designs

About: I love being creative, am crazy about my daughter and have recently married the man I've been waiting for all these years. I left the corporate world as a Director and Operations Manager to take care of my daughter with special needs. I started AshleyGabby Designs in April 2013 in order to fulfill my desire to be a part of the business world while still being able to work from home.

When thinking about starting AshleyGabby Designs, I wanted to dedicate the business in some way to my daughter and all other children with life threatening illnesses. I am currently setting my business up to donate a percentage of all children’s play tent profits to Give Kids The World Village, which will in turn benefit other children and raise awareness. I wanted to make a product that allows kids to be kids, where they can create, forget and get lost in play for a little while

What You’ll Find: Play and prop tents for children, bunting and crochet throws

Budget: $10.50- $240.00

Your Special Discount: Shop Ashley Gabby Designs thru December 15th and receive 10% off of your order with the code HBERRYLOVE


Classic Titanium

About: Classic Titanium is just the two of us, we are Cubby and Fox. We have been creating handmade titanium jewelry together for almost a decade. We have enjoyed working and being with each other so much, we went ahead and got married. A ring can be one of the most symbolic items you can wear. It can be a symbol of friendship, promise, or a vow of love and companionship, or sometimes just a super cool accessory. You can be sure, no matter its purpose, that your ring was made specifically for you with extreme care, respect, and pride in our craft.

In our business, we have only a few simple rules:

1. Everything will always be made by hand. We never use computerized machines. There are very few titanium jewelers still carving solely by hand. Most have turned to computerized machinery (CNC), pushing a button and walking away, making carbon copies of the same ring over and over again. While this makes the process easier and much cheaper, we feel that to let a computer do the work takes away from the meaningfulness that a ring holds.

2. To run an honest and fair company.

3. Have a good time.

What You’ll Find: 100% handmade rings for Men and Women
Budget: $79- $1,799
Your Special Discount: Stop by Classic Titanium anytime between now and January 1st and use the code HUCKLEBLOVE for 10% off of your order.
The Colorful Life

About: I was born and raised in Gulf Coast Texas and graduated from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design and a minor in Art.

From an early age, I was creating art. My love for crayons and coloring books has since evolved into skill with colored pencils and acrylics. As a student, I studied art and design in Chicago and London and then started my interior design career in Portland, Oregon. Since my return to the Houston area in 2009, I have focused on honing my craft in reclaimed materials and acrylic painting.
​​​​​​​​​​I love graphic design, HGTV, cooking, cookies and reading, reading, reading.

I work part-time as a Public Relations Director for a non-profit organization and spend the rest of my time creating art from my home studio in Rosenberg, Texas.

My art, like my personality, is in brilliant color. Life is too short for grays. So I say, throw open that paintbox and live a life more colorful!

What You’ll Find: Upcycled colored pencil and watercolor drawings
