Spotlight on " Happy Hippie Chick"


Beverly is a self-taught artist of many different art forms who believes strongly in reducing our waste and preserving the planet for future generations. she uses many different items in her creations, especially items that would normally find their way into landfills. You can visit her shop here and will be amazed with what she creates out of every day items such as scrabble tiles, bottle caps, etc. And her prices are well within most budgets! Keep her in mind for gift shopping as well as for your own stash!

Spotlight on "Kynd Kaleidoscope"

Adelaide of Kynd Kaleidoscope is truly versatile. Her charming patchies made from gently used vintage fabrics and her unique and interesting jewelry truly remind one of the days of Woodstock and Flower children. So if your Flower child is still alive and well, take a trip down memory lane and maybe come away with one of the delightful items you find there!

New Guild members

I have had such a busy summer! It's been nice, but I have fallen really far behind on my blog posts...
I would like to welcome several new guild members! I have posted links to their shops on my list of guild members (see right hand column), but I would also like to extend a warm welcome to them here: Crescent Moon Creations, Prossack Designs, Beeswax Candles and Handmade Soaps, Sleeping Wolf Creations, Michelle's Custom Jewelry and Crystal Wand Creations... what an incredible group of talented artisans and crafters we have in our guild! I hope to do some spotlighting of their work very soon, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, I hope you will take a few moments to visit our guild members' shops and see what they have to offer. ArtFire.com is such a great place to find unique gift items, and (dare I say it?) you know the holidays are going to smack us up the side of the head before we know it! Might as well get a head start on gift buying now!
