Slate House

 Give a warm welcome to lauraprentice , who creates mixed media art! 
Laura tells me this is how she got her start:   I’ve been making art my entire life, my dad is an artist so it has always been a part of my life. I got really serious about it my senior year of high school.
Etsy was chosen because:  I figured that if I could get paid to do what I love, why not?
Her fave from her shop??  I am really excited about my mini house drawing series that is in my shop right now, it’s a mock-up for a larger project that I am working on outside of etsy but it’s really cute and has been fun to work with.       Slate house is part of her mini house series.
Be a Seed Print

Pixe’s Picks:  Laura has a great shop filled with her original artwork;  she even has handmade paper!  How cool is a green shop!!  My fave is her Be a Seed Print .   I may be interpreting this all wrong, however, I think the message is to encourage us all to grow and nurture ourselves, others, and the world around us.  Be sure to give Laura some love!

Now if you would,  please welcome April, from appleblossomfl!  She creates some beautiful, one of a kind jewelry!  April has been creating jewelry for a little over 3 years, and this is how she tells me she got her start:  My SIL got me sucked into beading! She had taken a class with a friend for fun, got hooked and then lured me in the next time I saw her.

This is the reason April chose Etsy:  I stumbled upon Etsy from a post on Craig’s List. The first time I saw the website I was extremely interested in selling (and buying of course). I really love the sense of community here.
Tell us your favorite item from your shop:  Right now, my favorite is my You Put the Lime in the Cotton Candy necklace. I love the bright colors and making the bead balls is really fun! My favorite changes all the time though.  I’ve made some earrings recently that I’m pretty partial too!
Little Birdy

Little Birdy

Pixe’s Picks:  April has some very pretty beaded, and wire worked jewelry for women and little girls.  She also makes book thongs…a great idea, I think!!   My favorite is the Little Birdy Scrabble Tile Pendant!  This is such a classic design with the black and white…wearable with just about anything!
These are this week’s Pixe’s Picks!  Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you enjoyed your stay!  Please leave a comment for these wonderful Etsy artists…They would love to hear from you!
Have a peaceful, safe, and creative week!
