Featured Artists of the Day....

I enjoy checking out the shops on Etsy and seeing all the beautiful items by such talented people. I plan to feature a number of artists each week...I was unsure how to decide who to feature than decided I will feature the ones that like to check out other artists. Those features will be the ones that have commented on my past blog posts on the talent on Etsy.

GrandmaLindasHouse has a beautiful shop with a variety of items. Linda is a very talented Grandmother that enjoys sewing and is very active in the WiseWittyWild Grandmother team. Her Barbie doll outfits are the hit of her shop:




NewEnglandQuilter is another artist that sews alot...she does make quilts but the favorite from her shop for me is her neat little educational memory matching games:




CraftsbyChris makes the most fabulous beads....she is also part of the Etsy Angels and they are one of her biggest customers. Her beads make the most gorgeous jewelry. Here are a few of her beads:


























BoutiqueKarma is another artist that does lots of sewing. She is a fellow Canadian and her shop features coffee cozies, mug huggers and crayonrolls:









Circleinthesand is a great Etsy seller, she participates in a number of teams and always starts new threads each day to promote new items, blogs, treasuries,etc.
Her shop features mostly supplies but does have a few hand made items..


















Silkcreeksoaps has a wonderful shop....she was orginally called Sissysoaps but has since changed her shop name. She is a member of the Etsy Angels and takes part in all our fund raisers. Silkcreeksoaps will do a special order just for you in one of her many scents...be sure to check her shop out. Her goats milk handmade soaps are so devine....

Granny, I love that you really get to know the Etsy shops you feature. You look deep into their wares and find just the thing you want to blog about. I like that.

Another fun blog posts, Mona. Such fun to see some fellow 'grandmas' featured. I hope to do a blog one day because I, too, would enjoy featuring fellow artistic crafters from Etsy, like your wonderful items. :-)
