Hello all! Today is my first real blog at this address. I am going to use this blog to celebrate the wonderful crafters and artists out there who use their imaginations every day to create things of beauty.
One day it might be a soft animal, the next handbag or a piece of jewelry. I am a strong believer that artisans should help each other out. There have been so many times I've run into a crafter at a flea market or show and they're embarrassed to promote themselves. Artists need to all stick together as we mostly all love creating items, but hate the promo part. Myself included.

So I thought it would be fun to cheer on other like minded creative people. If you are one, contact me and maybe you can be featured here too!
Today, I am spotlighting a wonderful crafter who I found on Etsy named Amy Lilley. She makes the most darling teddy bears and creatures who fit in teacups. They are fully jointed and so sweet. I had to buy her tiny puppy, as it stole my heart. She make her home in England and at the ripe old age of 22 she's already what I consider well on her way to being a highly sought after artisan. The type of animals she makes are reminders of a bygone time. So delightful!
