5/25-5/31--Etsy Twitter Team Shop of the week: A Cagey Bee

This very unique shop titled A Cagey Bee is run by artist Kris G. Brownlee – or KGB. You can truly tell in each piece of art how much KGB loves paint. Kris is a true artist of the times..she has made little reproductions of her original paintings into prints, notecards, and even little pendants with her characters so paintings can be affordable to all!!

My favorite is her little pendant--Claire-- i think this is because of the real life like features that are portrayed. I love how her hair looks, her eyes bright to the world and the camera that shows how much she enjoys sharing her life with others. It also could be that green dress because green is one of the few colors I can truly wear. My other favorites are her cards. I could see myself writing to friends, co-workers, family or just because in them. What ever your true love is please check out KGB's shop this is one artist you don't want to miss out on!

Shop of the week--Silver Mountain Originals May18-24

Tammy Gross, of, also known as SILVER Mountain Originals, creates “an eclectic mix of unique fabric jewelry, the occasional art doll (and a couple of original sewing patterns for those), purses, totes and wallets – many of those 'upcycled' from repurposed fabrics.” She also has a few woven ribbons for sale that are quite unique.
“Everything I make comes from a creative burst of energy and is one-of-a-kind. If I’m inspired enough to make a handful of items that are similar, no two will ever really be the same. Sometimes I wish I could be more consistent, but that hasn’t happened yet and I’ve been creating art for 20 years. I love to try new things and experiment – not everything comes out as planned and it’s back to the drawing board until I get it right, which can sometimes mean weeks until I get things just the way I want them to be.Why ‘Tamdoll’? In the 90’s, when I learned to sew, I started making fantasy art dolls - – and did that for quite a while selling them in local boutiques. Beading dragon wings led me to experiment with beading and jewelry making, but my passion was with the fabric and soon enough, I figured out how to blend the two into fabric jewelry!”

Shop of the week :South Paw Studios 5/11-5/17

This weeks shop of the week from the EtsyTwitter Team is South Paw Studios!

In less than 6 months my best friend of 15 years is getting married. The first thing that comes to mind is the dress then the jewelry. I found the earrings above in South Paw Studios titled "Light Pink Fresh water pearl bridal earrings". It is a beautiful simple example of what can be worn at a wedding. Not to mention the price is just right!! ($15.00 plus shipping/handling) I may have to ask if I can wear these..hmmm what a thought!! anyway..when it comes to me buying jewelry the simple stuff always catches my eyes..I love the clean cut it presents to anyone. If you ever noticed people always comment on the simple items and how they pull an outfit together. I can even picture wearing these to a job interview..
You can also find bracelet's, necklaces, and other earrings that are just beautiful in Katy Mims' shop.

May 4-10: Shop of the week- Bellflower Textile

Everyday that I walk into the schools remind myself to watch where I am going to place my feet. Why you ask? because when your in an elementary school there is bound to be crayons, pencils, markers, and colored pencils on the floor. I have seen so many children step on them and have to catch themselves from falling. Above is a dream come true to help keep the pencils off the floor. It is a very fun pencil holder for children to use and can be re used for each school year. In Bellflower Textiles you will find so many bright and fun colors to meet everyone's wants/needs.
My second favorite thing in her shop is the tooth fairy pillows. I remember growing up and loosing my teeth left and right. My mom had made me a small tooth fairy pillow which I think she still has. In Megan's shop she has brought back the FUN in loosing your teeth. I really like the rubber duckies. This is such a great gift for any child for their birthday, holiday or as a you did great in school reward. Or hey I got it---what about congrats you lost your first tooth!!
Whatever the occasion is Bellflower Textiles has amazing ideas for presents or just for yourself.
Bellflower Textiles ships internationally.
