First and Second - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - September 30, 2015

Doing so many arts festivals weekend after weekend really cuts into my time, trying to recover from the show and organizing, trying to make new items, trying to catch up and trying to finish scheduled things, like this blog.  Oh . . . and also have a life - LOL!  But it's all good and usually keeps me out of trouble!

To save some time, this week's "Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade" features alternating first and second items from the studios of the artists featured.  I don't know about you, but I love posts like since they always show such a wide variety of items in a wide variety of mediums.  Without further ado, here are the "First and Second" items:


Large copper sea urchin focal handmade by Kristi of KristiBowmanDesign
