Announcement Wildly Rooted Boutique

It is with a great amount of excitement I’m making this announcement.  You can now find the rhinestone creations of Cr8tive Release Gifts in a physical store front location.

As many of you may know I’ve been wanting to get my creations into a physical store front for quite some time, well that has finally happened.  At this time,  only my rhinestone creations will be available store front, but I hope to expand that over time.  You may be asking where are the amazing creations of Cr8tive Release Gifts going to be available for sale.  They will be available for sale along side the goods of the owners and other amazing vendor of Wildly Rooted Boutique.

Wildly Rooted Boutique is a three woman owned small business that has recently opened next to another woman owned small business, Ad Astra Wine Bar & Market in Downtown Springfield.  The boutique carries a wide variety of women’s, kids’ and home décor.  It is a all-inclusive women’s boutique that is plus-size positive, and carries clothes up to size 5x.  Not only does the boutique have a variety of amazing items for sale, but they will also offer weekly workshops featuring everything from macramé to making earrings and hold paint nights.

You can find Wildly Rooted Boutique at 306 E. Adams St, Springfield, IL 62701 and online at

Wildly Rooted Boutique will be open Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Don’t worry though, ALL of the amazing Cr8tive Release Gifts items you’re use to are still available online or by contacting me directly.

Think Pink

Think Pink

It’s that time of year again where everything is done up in spooky Halloween themes or covered in pink.  And even though, wearing pink does not help support breast cancer research, it is not entirely pointless.  All the commercial marketing  helps make people more aware of the issue, and making more people aware helps increase the number of people who then go on to make a positive difference.

Cr8tive Release Gifts doesn’t offer any mass produced breast cancer awareness items but we do sell some handmade breast cancer awareness items.  We also give a small portion of each purchase of those items to local breast cancer patients and survivors.

So, buy that breast cancer gear, spread information about programs available for early detection and treatments, donate to reputable research organizations, or just pray that someday we will have a cure for this horrible disease.


To purchase a breast cancer awareness item from Cr8tive Release Gifts, please check out the following items:

Also available as an acrylic magnet, acrylic ornament, suncatcher, and ceiling fan pull upon request.

Cr8tive Release Gifts joined forces with …

I have joined forces with several handmade creators to sell handmade items in a variety of places on Facebook. These Facebook Groups are ever growing and changing along with the FB algorithm. In order to continue to be seen by a wide audience of people, we are constantly looking for new handmade creators to join the team and spread the word about the events.

To become a vendor, some of the groups do charge a small monthly vendor fee.  To join the group, just click the link or group logo.  Membership questions  are required before acceptance into the groups.  If you’re interested in becoming a vendor in a group contact one of the groups’ admins for additional information.  I enjoy being part of all these groups immensely and look forward to helping spread the word about these small businesses joining together as a team.

The teams that Cr8tive Release Gifts is currently a part of are…

Boutique Blasts                                                                                                        (

Hello world!

Welcome to Cr8tive Release Gifts!  

My name is Faye Mitchell and I’ve been crafting for 20+ years.  I really enjoy seeing the expressions on recipients’ faces when they receive a handmade gift.  Crafting and being creative helps me relax from my regular full time job while earning extra income for my family.  I came up with the name for my shop by just thinking of a creative way to express what this shop is to me…  it’s my Cr8tive Release.

I specialize in a wide variety of custom personalized handmade gifts ranging from vinyl decals and keychains to apparel and accessories.  My favorite things to create are custom orders because I love being able to take an idea or vision from the mind of someone else and make it into a reality.

Make sure to follow Cr8tive Release Gifts on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and Twitter for the latest products and sales.  Also join my VIP Email list for additional sales and discounts.
