I’m going to follow in Michelle Allen’s foot steps today and share links to some of my new friends that I met at Artfest. I’ve shared some of them with you before, but they are all doing such awesome stuff, that I feel I need to share again!! And, I’m adding them to my side-bar for your future blog hopping pleasure.
Michelle Allen makes the most awesome art and art journals and she made these amazing bracelets too!! Aren’t they beautiful?!? She made them for Craft Hope’s Project 12 who is partnering with orphan outreach to make bracelets for orphans in Russia. (Deadline is June 15th if you would like to participate)
Tyler of Baby Lux, makes the sweetest appliqued onesies, and she also makes awesome recycled journals with these cool little tabs, that she shares how to make. I’ve been wanting to make some for my art journal. She also recently made some nifty teacher appreciation gifts.
Shelly Massey is my Artfest mentor. She did the whole teaching-for-the-first-time application process last year and she has so kindly shared her experience with me, plus she wrote a post about what she learned. She is also getting a new art studio! So excited for her.
I met Sunny Carvalho last year, but got to see her again this year and got to grab some of her awesome stuff at the market. She makes hats, jewelry, journals, clay figurines, and she paints and sews too. She does a little bit of everything!
Janne Robberstad is the maker of so many beautiful things: art, journals, girlie bags, mixed media. She says that arting without chocolate is like swimming without water. Ha! I love that and couldn’t agree more.
Thank you for letting me share other creative souls. And I want to thank all of you in my creative-online circle for being so supportive and coming here often to say hello and give support. I appreciate all of you so much and thankful everyday to have you here with me!!
