Blooming Trees: Pink and White - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

I almost hate to admit it because I know many people are having a hard winter with snow and extreme cold.  I almost hate to admit that the weather here has been awesome, short sleeve shirts with a light jacket at night,  I almost hate to admit that many trees are blooming, the pears with their snowy white and the peach and cherries with their perfect pink.  I do have to admit that this warm weather is not normal for this time of the year and unexpected freezing temperatures could undo the fountain of flowers that the warmth has brought.  But I am going to enjoy the warm sun and the beautiful flowering trees while I can!

 

Spirals, Knots, Bumps and Curves - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - December 23, 2015

The theme of this blog post came about because I listed a new pair of earrings that feature hand painted copper spiral rectangles by Kristi of KristiBowmanDesign.  Whenever I see spirals, I start musing on their ancient . . . and modern . . . appeal in designs.  Then knots, bumps and curves came to mind, all of which, along with spirals, can be found pecked or drawn or carved in the sides of caves, on boulders, painted on pottery and used in contemporary pieces.  These designs will never go out of style.

 

A Little of This, A Little of That - All Handmade

Many months ago, a team of wonderful artists pulled together to form a group called the Cross Partners in Promotion.  It's a group that not only heavily promotes each other, but also offers congratulations, offers support, offers sympathy, offers interesting and entertaining articles, and abounds in cheerleading efforts . . . and comforted each other after unexpectedly loosing a dear team member.  Most of us have known each other online for years and have become an extended family.  I decided to share a wide range of lovely handmade items from my artist friends who have checked into the group in the past seven days.  I hope these beauties are enjoyed as much as I have enjoyed picking them out and sharing them!
