Around the world in color!

It's BESTeam Monday and today I am visiting Uruguay, Australia, and my own USA.  I've noticed in my travels, that everyone loves color....and for me, the brighter...the better.  So let's start with the land down under...
Lesley Boretto from BorettoArt calls Australia home.  The land of kangaroos and koala bears.  I remember growing up that my step-mom mentioned that she wanted a koala bear as a pet.  As if 10 kids, dogs, cats, and guinea pigs weren't enough, lol.  But Lesley does not live in the outback, but in the most populous city...Sydney.  My favorite piece at BorettoArt is this Vase of Flowers, an original acrylic on canvas painting.  The colors are so bright and vivid!  You can find more about BorettoArt here.
Now we're off to South the country of Uruguay...where we will find Marisa, the talent behind Floresdelsur.  Marisa takes felt, fabric, and ribbon, and creates wonderful accessories for craft projects, or your own personal use.  Here she rolled ribbon for a new and funky way to show your love of your country...custom patriotic rolled ribbon rosette pins.  Just convo her with the flag colors of your country, and she'll make one just for you.  And I bet she would make you one in any color combination you would like, these would be cool as boutonnieres for a wedding party!  Convo her and ask..
And now we're back home in the United States of America.  Maryland to be exact, which is where you will find DeeDeeDzyn, one of our newer members of the BESTeam.  Look at the colors in this awesome Multicolored Tiger Striped design necklace.  Delia has a great "eye" for form and color, and the items she offers in her shop are sure to please every style.  And here's an interesting tidbit, Delia was born and raised in South Africa and you'll see that cultural influence in many of her designs.  Look for her here...

Now a little info for you on the Boosting Etsy Shops Team, or what we loving call the BESTeam.  We are a group of Etsy artisians that help promote and support each other thru our blogs, twitter, facebook, and any other on-line social sites that we have.  And thru this promotion and support, we have also become a great group of friends.  So if you're looking for some new friends, join us!
And I'll see y'all tomorrow.
