Feeling Festive today

The whole street is decorated with beautiful Chrismas lights ! Me and my daughter were strolling on the street and taking snaps of the decoration. All night I was dreaming about the beautiful green.. blue red & golden twinkling lights... and the tiny lights get woven on the bobby pins this morning !

Dear Friends
I am so glad to announce the 'Featured Artist 'of this week CloudNineDesignz.She has a lovely shop on etsy. 
Hope you all will enjoy reading this interview :)

 Featured Shop - CloudNineDesignz   

1. Tell us something about yourself. Where did you learn your skills ?
    I taught myself how to make jewelry. I had ordered a box of destash supplies off ebay for card making. In the box there were different beads as well. I played around and started making jewelry ever since. That was about 2 years ago.
2.What motivates you to create ? 
   Anything motivates me to create, a song, a picture. I love memories. I think it is very important to have an item for someone to remember a certain day/person/feeling.
3. Apart from creating things, what do you do? 

   Apart from creating things I love volunteering. I volunteer with the Ronald McDonald House, Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and To Write Love On Her Arms, is my favorite charity. I love helping people.
   All proceeds from my "Think Pink" section goes to Susan G Komen for breast cancer research:

4.Of all the things that you sell, which item or style is your favorite?

I love selling my button bracelets, they are great for any age. I love selling my sorority items, because being Greek is important to me. It shaped me into who I am as a person. I love selling anything that means something to the buyer or recipient.
5. Your advice / suggestion to the new sellers ?   
Advice I would give to others is don't give up and make new friends in the art world. They will be your strongest help.
6.Where can we see more of your work ? Share your Links

Featured Artist of the Week

Dear Friends
I am so glad to announce the 'Featured Artist 'of this week Rikke for FeltedByRikkeRikke is a teacher and also makes hand felted toys & dolls. She has a lovely shop on etsy. 
Hope you all will enjoy reading this interview with the super talented Rikke :)

 Featured Shop - FeltedByRikke   

1. Tell us something about yourself.
I was born in 1970 in a small town in the south of Denmark. 22 years ago I moved to Copenhagen, which is the capital of Denmark and am still living there. I´m a single mom of 4 children aged from 10-15 years. I work part time as a teacher in science, history, art, cooking and geography. I do my creations from home - my couch actually, I like sitting there with the TV on and my wool and needles around me. I don´t have the space for a studio, but I don´t think I would make one if I had, I like listening to music on TV while I´m working and talking to the children.
2. Where did you learn your skills ?  
    Actually nowhere - 3 years ago I saw a needle felting kit in a local supermarket. I didn´t even know that needle felting existed. I bought it and made the 2 small dolls that were in it - and I have been needle felting since :-) Now I design my own items. I´m in contact with a lot of other needle felters all over the world and we share ideas and techniques but apart from that I´m selftaught.
3.What motivates you to create ? 
   Well I don´t think I cannot create :-) - It comes very natural to me - I have been creative since I was about 6 years old, knitting, painting, sewing and now needle felting. I have asked myself if I maybe a day will find another kind of craft but honestly I don´t think so, I love needle felting so much, so I will proberly do it until I´m 95 years old
4. Apart from creating things, what do you do? 

   Well actually nothing else;-) - my work as a teacher, the children and the needle felting take up all my time. I do enjoy Scandinavian and English crime series on TV, but I must admit that I´m needle felting while I watch them - or should I say listen to them, because it can hurt a lot if you don´t pay attention to your barbed needle;-)
5. How would you describe your creative process?
   It depends on what I´m creating. When I needle felt my dolls I pretty much let them be who they want to be - they seem to have a life on their own;-). When I needle felt animals I have to concentrate a lot on getting proportions right in another way than when I´m creating a doll who is "allowed" to be more personalized. 

6. Your advice / suggestion to the new sellers ?

   Be active!!!!!! You need to join teams, make treasure lists etc Its not enough to make a treasurelist a week. You have to remember that there are more than 900.000 shops on Etsy so you really have to work on getting yourself "known". I don´t count the hours I spend on Etsy, but I know it´s more than 5 hours in workdays and maybe 8 Saturday and Sunday.

A Rose a day !

  When I was a child, I remember those beautiful days when we used to go hiking in the mountains covered with tiny wild flowers. It was so fun to try on all these colorful flowers ! 


  Those were the days when the cameras were rare & pictures were taken only in studios. But the memories of the flowers have lasted in mind for ever !

  Here are some of the pretty little rose flower earrings, perfect for everyday & a lovely gift for someone you love !
