There must be 50 or 60 of these handpainted bead doll heads in the bag that I got for a quarter at the thrift shop yesterday. I know they're meant for pipe cleaner dolls, but I've no idea IF I'll ever actually DO something with them.
I wanted to brag on this Jenn Murphy licensed design piece I got recently at Bayberry Cove. I am SO impressed with the quality of this! Look at all the detail; mohair rabbit, felty flowers, sitting on a pincushion, and it stands over 10 inches tall! Wowee. All that for $22. And the customer service at this online store was fab, too. And the selection! Whoa. If you don't already have them in your favorites you should definitely go check them out!
We probably all remember the first etsy artist that we came across that made us say "wow!" For me it was KupKup. She is from Spain and the way she weaves stories of KupKup and his friend Lolo and all their adventures into her one of a kind pieces just charms me no end. For the most part it's simply snipped bits of felt and papers but it just really grabs me. I don't know why it took me almost a year but I finally bought a couple of her pieces recently.
I love them. If you look WAY back in her sold items you'll see many more of her flat paper pieces...I think they're what first got her started. My biggest excitement about the new studio is having all these talented artists' works displayed for me to appreciate and be inspired by every day. I am SO looking forward to that!
It's late and I need to call it a day. I wanted to share this real quick just in case you need a special something for a Valentines' Day card. I was cleaning this mini studio of mine yesterday ( shock!) and I came across this desk calendar sheet and I'll be darned if the day of the week is not correct for this particular year! Cool! Let me know if you end up using it on something and I'll do the same.
