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.

 

Dazzling Handmade Gifts for Shop Small Saturday and CyberMonday!

With Thanksgiving almost here, Shop Small Saturday and CyberMonday are not far behind.  This year, think about giving a handmade gift, whether it's an antique hand crafted beauty or a piece designed much more recently.  Many creations are one of a kind, with each artist putting more than a bit of her heart and soul into each piece.  A wide range of handmade gift ideas are featured, two from each artist.  The first item shown has festive red in it, maybe more of a gift to wear during the holidays.  The second choice is a piece that can be worn every day.  

Dazzling Handmade Picks for Black Friday Shopping

 

For millions of people, Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the time to do serious Christmas shopping.  In the United States, it’s one of the the major shopping days of the year.  It’s not an official holiday although many people have that day off . . . except if you work in retail.  

 

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!
