Featured Artist Friday – January 27, 2012

This week, for the first time, Featured Artist Friday has a theme – needles and thread. Each one of the talented artisans profiled this week used needles and thread in their work. But, that’s where the similarities end. They range from a dramatic gemstone, beaded statement necklace to a rockabilly dress that can be made to order to some decorator pillows and a multi-compartment wallet. I suspect they’ll be at least one that you’ll want to take a closer look at. Better yet, I hope you check out the Etsy shops and blogs of all the artists and let them know how much their work inspires you.

Featured Artist Friday – January 20, 2012

It was bound to happen. A Featured Artist Friday post entirely comprised of wonderful items made by Etsians. Even though two of them are both silversmiths, their artisan jewelry is quite unique and I would definitely check out both of their shops before making a purchase. If you aren’t looking for silver jewelry, there’s also a talented watercolorist who places her miniature paintings under glass and makes lovely pendents from them. A skilled crocheter and her newsboy hat are also featured. And rounding out this week’s group is a die cut embellishments supplier who has taken her own die cuts to create a trio of owls to adorn your paper crafts.

No bad luck (other than yet another Friday post not getting posted until Saturday morning) here. Instead, you will find four wonderful handmade items folks participating on Crafty Tips made this week. This week we help one artisan introduce a new line of men’s jewelry, a proud momma show off two lovely dresses she stitched for her pretty little girls, a lampwork glass artist sell some of her wonderful beading components and another artist who makes wonderful printables and greeting cards.

A huge variety of eye candy and wonderful handmade items available for purchase. C’mon, you know you wanna look and see what everyone’s made.

This week showcases four talented artists. Three lovely and very different pieces of jewelry along with a beautiful ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket are among my favorites from the many folks participating on Crafty Tips.

This week’s group may be the most diverse in style but that only makes it more likely that you will find something that you can not live without.

Featured Friday – December 30, 2011

For the last Featured Friday Craft Showcase of 2011, I’ve shared the work of five very different artisans. We have two Etsians – one offering paper crafting items and the other food miniatures. We have paintings from two bloggers and we have a funky and fun children’s craft project – a froggie snowflake. This week’s handcrafted and hand-painted items will hopefully inspire you to check out the shops and blogs of these five talented ladies.

Crafters from the jewelry, scrapbooking, sewing and card making categories on Crafty Tips are represented in this week’s Featured Friday project showcase. Four of the crafters have been featured before and we introduce a wonderful resin jewelry maker who is making his Blog About Crafts debut.

Some of the items are available for sale and others are offered for admiring. Be sure to visit their blogs and Etsy shops to learn more about their creations and see the many other wonderful items they have made.
