Great Artist - Stitchnmomma!

This is a great shop to check out: Stitchnmomma. She is a stitching machine and has all sorts of fun stuff in her store, such as ornaments, magnets, kits, patterns, and much more!

Here is her bio: I make and sell cross stitched gifts, kits & original patterns. I've been stitching for 30+ years have recently decided to start sharing my original designs with others. I have had my Etsy shop for less than 1 year.

You can tell she loves what she does. She takes stitching to a new level by offering things like tote bags, which are really cute. She also creates original patterns and sells them.

Here is one of my favorites:

Great Artist - JED Bridal

This is a great artist to check out if you like jewelry: Julie Ellyn Designs Bridal Showcase. Her shop offers bridal jewelry including necklaces and earrings.

Here is her bio: I began to make jewelry after I searched high and low for the perfect bridal jewelry and bridesmaid's gift for my own wedding. After commissioning a talented jeweler to design pieces for my girls I was inspired to create beautiful baubles on my own.

All of the pieces are beautiful! Each piece is detailed and made very well. Any bride or bridesmaid would be lucky to have any of these necklaces or earrings! They are also the perfect thing to wear on your wedding.

This is my favorite:

Neat Artist - Browns Country Originals

Here is a neat artist to look at and get some fun things from: Browns Country Originals. This shop offers a range of items from paper mache to pins to chalkware figures. They have something for everyone!

Here is their bio:

We are a husband and wife artist team. I work with wood, chalkware, clay and papier mache. My wife works with dried, fresh and artificial flowers and hypertufa. These creative passions led us in 2008 to start Brown’s Country Originals. The name came from living in the country and our last name.

Hypertufa is a lite weight concrete. Besides the paper mache and chalkware we have a line of garden items my wife makes country/primitive hypertufa birdbaths, flower planters and flower pots. I make country/primitive wooden potting benches, planter and garden stakes.

They have lots of cute stuff in their store. This time of year Christmas items are big, and they have many to choose from. The snowmen figures are very cute, as is the St. Nick paper mache. They would look great in any house.

Great Artist - MamiMadeIt

Great artist to check out and get some cute items from: MamiMadeIt.
Currently in her shop are toys and bottle bags.

Here is her bio:

My mom showed me making things by myself when I was a little girl. Knitting, sewing, embroidering, crocheting, doing handicrafts are always part of my life. And there are so many things I still want to learn such as pottery, making mosaics (tessellation), knot a carpet. Recently I read something about making paper. Isn’t it exciting?
I hope my daughter will be interested in these things too and I am able to pass on the joy, pride and satisfaction of making things by herself.

Her bunnies are really cute and would make a great gift for a little girl or boy. I can also picture them in a home sitting on a bench in the foyer welcoming all guests. Also in her store are bottle bags perfect for Christmas time. They are reusable and would be a great accent for a Christmas gift.

My favorite item is:

Here is a great artist to check out: LOC Design Studio.
There is a large selection of all things beaded including: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, charms bookmarks and fobs.

Here is the artists bio: I create one of a kind, handcrafted beaded jewelry items. I LOVE beads, especially glass and crystal, freshwater and glass pearls, and white metal finishes. In addition to creating adornments for your ears, neck and wrists, I also design jewelry for your books, cell phones and keys.

Her earrings are really nice and well crafted! There is a big variety to choose from. If you are an avid reader, her beaded bookmarks are unique. Any of her pieces would make a great gift for someone or even a gift to yourself!
