Artist Of The Month November 2010

With moving and unpacking I have been neglecting my blog.  I even missed posting my artist of the month for November!  I wanted to feature Philippa.  She does some amazing quilling.  
Make sure to visit her blog and see all the great work she does!

You can also visit her store to purchase some of her great work.  She even has watches that have her quilling inside.  What great gifts those would make for Christmas!

October 2010 Artist Of The Month


This month's artist of the month is:

Here's a little bit about her taken from her bio on her Etsy store:

"I've always loved to create, whether it be sewing, gardening, sketching, baking or pottery, there is something very magical about the creative process. Where once before there was a scrap of material, a mass of dirt and weeds, a blank canvas, a pile of unpalatable ingredients, or a lump of clay, there is now something beautiful to enjoy, to gaze at, to use.
I recently discovered the creative potential in jewelry. I use a wide variety of materials, from recycled vintage pieces to beautiful new stones and beads. Every item is a one of a kind, handmade piece.
Every now and again, I come across a piece that is in beautiful vintage condition and is just too wonderful to alter. These pieces can be rediscovered on their own or incorporated into a handmade original.
I've named this new hobby of mine in memory of my Mother who had a passion for jewelry. From large costume pieces to smaller fine pieces, and many pieces she created on her own, she wore it all, no matter what the occasion.
The jewelry you see here is meant to be enjoyed and worn whether you are going to a wedding or going to enjoy a coffee and a good book.

Consider every day an occasion..."
She has two stores on Etsy, one with cards and quilling and the other with some awesome jewelry she makes.  Make sure to give her a visit.

September 2010 Artist Of The Month


Again how I am so late posting the artist of the month.  Time sure does fly.  
This month's artist is Dizzie Lizzie.
She does wonderful quilled work and other mixed media artistry.  
Here is what she says about herself:
"I've always been creating things. I enjoy working with my hands and it's hard for me to keep them still. I'm not happy unless I'm creating. I really believe that everyone has a talent, a desire to show the world."
Make sure to take a peek at her Etsy store and see all of her wonderful creations.

Paper Beads

I had always wanted to try making paper beads because I thought they can't be any harder than quilling.  They are really fun to make and I have my first batch in my Etsy Store!

August 2010 Artist Of The Month


Oh my, how time flies!  It's the 6th and I haven't told you who my artist of the month is yet.  Well wait no more!  It's 


Here's a little bit about Lidia from her bio on her Etsy store.


"I am a native of Sydney, Australia, and it was here that I began my formal education in art. In my second year of college I moved to the United States and received my B.F.A. from B.G.S.U. in Ohio. I spent the next 10 years as art director in the field of television. Recognizing the stresses of the advertising world, I took the opportunity to find other forms of artistic expression. My love of glass was born and I allowed this creative energy to guide me. What evolved were works of art that integrated into our more common understanding of functional living.
My larger body of work is represented by some of the finest art galleries in the nation.
I had the privilege to exhibit with the world renowned artist, Dale Chihuly and also completed a restoration of 18 stained glass windows at a chapel in Ohio."

Her work is amazing........you just have to visit her store and see all the wonderful things she makes!  Make sure to stop by her blog and her Facebook page too!

Twilight Paper Bag Album

I finally finished the Twilight Paper Bag Album.  You can purchase it from me at my Etsy Store.

This scrapbook measures approximately 6x6 and has 10 Pages along with 3 double sided inserts. That makes 16 pages! I left room on some pages for you to place tickets, photos or journaling of your own.

I had a blast creating this scrapbook because I'm the biggest Twilight fan (no really, I am)! The photo collage has pictures of all the pages.

There is one "interactive" page too. It's the one that has the little square that says "Do I Dazzle You?". Since Edward is so sparkly I wanted something that would have sparkles on him. So shake it and he sparkles with the glitter in the shaker box!
