...totally thrilling...Relics & Arifacts


I could not be more excited about the chance to work with my friend Sandra Evertson...

...and I have to tell you more about our new partnership to share her 
ORIGINALS via Earth Angels Studios & 
her matte resin 
CRAFT BLANKS via the Art Girls' RoadShow...
Many of you know Sandra via print magazines and her wonderful Social Media Presence 
(to follow her click the prompts from her about pages on her site)...
...she is not only the artistic genius behind "Relics & Artifacts" matte resin craft blanks, but a contributing editor and regular writer for Jo Packham's Where Women Create magazines...that's how we know each other...thanks to Jo!

I adore Sandra and her style...I admire how she shares her own creativity and in doing so, inspires others to create...

So how thrilled am I to present some of her ORIGINAL creations...all made with her blanks, found objects and vintage goods...

Here's a small selection of the wonderful one of a kind, originals we have from Sandra on the site...

These are a few among my faves...






If creating is your thing...please look at purchasing Sandra's matte resin craft blanks here:
...there are soooo many wonderful, and affordable sets...these should be a staple in your crafting arsenal of supplies and inspiring objects...

...we will also have these blanks at 
June 3rd, 4th & 5th...

And a huge thanks to Sandra for the opportunity to work with her to share her style and artistry...
It's an honor.

gotta love this type of recycling

...this is happy good stuff...
I love that Valerie Weberpal uses recycled wools and textiles in making her pillow-like art dolls.  
 
They are all so charming, each singular in style...
festive and fun.

in Sanford, FL... 
(here's her work on display there...)

WOO HOO!!!
I cannot wait to see what she has up her sleeve... you see, Val never uses a pattern in making her Harvest Moon creations...
 
She never repeats a design...

and stay tuned for more fab creations 

Thanks Val for making these happy critters...
