BESTeam Feature - Chicky D's

Here in Southern Oregon spring and winter are sort of interchangeable, we've been getting lots of snow and cold rain lately, but the flowers are blossoming in my woodland garden and we are tilling the vegetable garden with dreams of summer basil and hot peppers. 

This week we are featuring the fantastic creative work of Danielle Saletzki. A mild mannered graphic designer at the local Peru, Illinois newspaper by day and a mad crafter with a penchant for photography during her free time.

Danielle makes the greatest pillows and bows and caps I've ever seen! I love this military style cap accessorized with colorful yo-yos and retro buttons, and the best part is that she will take your request and create custom items. So all you have to do is inquire about your favorite colors and she will likely accommodate your requests!

  1. The weather in Illinois has been crazy. We had unheard of 80 degree temperatures in mid to late March. It has dropped back down to the 60s now.
    Thank you so much for the feature!
