One of my favorite things about being an artist, and getting to know other artists, is that we don't know any strangers, just friends we haven't met yet. Growing up I would visit countless arts and crafts shows with my mother, and everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) took the time to talk to me, just a kid. It really encouraged me to live the life of an artist. When we started selling on line, we started our shop on Etsy, and I made many friends there that I am still in contact with, whether through our blogging, tweeting, or facebook. And just recently I moved my shops to The Craft Star where I am making wonderful new friends. But today I want to go back and visit my friends from Handmade Artist.
Let's start with this new piece from Rasmussen Gems.
The purples and pink beads are so soft and pretty in this beaded necklace. This necklace was designed by Debora, and measures a nice matinee length of 34".
Here's a lovely crocheted cozy for your tablet done in a warm caramel colors.
It is handmade special for you by Cr8tiveLefty, and if you would rather have a brighter color, there are many to chose from in the shop.
I am in love.....with this lampwork bead necklace by Brooklyn Bead Goddess. She creates every bead individually, and when you purchase this necklace, or another piece of jewelry, she sends them to you already gift wrapped! What a nice touch.
And lastly, who doesn't love teddy bears? I know I do, and you can find this new brown curly fur teddy in the shop of IKnitQuiltSew, along with many other teddys, dolls, and quilts. A child, and child lovers, paradise. :0)
I feel blessed to have gotten to know these wonderful people at Handmade Artist, and to chat with them on the forums and through our blog rings, and I look forward to making even more friends in the future.
So click on any link, and tell my friends that I sent you.
