ByNanasHands

Today I want to feature a wonderful lady and artist... Melana of ByNanasHands. I am proud to also call her my friend.

I met Melana through the Etsy Angels and over the years got to know her pretty well. We have shared some sorrows, some joys and some really hard times but through it all we have become friends.

I love her little creations and own many of them!

Here are just a few:

Tilly The Turtle - a special one for me... it was a mascot Melana created when the Etsy Angels were raising funds for the Anderson House of PEI...

Tilly has a new friend!





Melana's new creation that has really taken off for her is her Ereader covers... they are gorgeous and all the rage:

I love the turtles, unfortunately both my kids are grown and no grand kids yet, but I might buy one of the turtles just because :)

I second that! Melana's creations are amazing and she is an amazing human being. She always does so much for everyone, always ready to lend a helping hand.

I got one of those owl sewing kits from her shop last year and I love it! Great feature Mona!
