Featured Etsy Artist ~ SummerSea Herbs

I'm familiar with this etsy seller. She has a wonderful shop with lots of useful and fun things!
You can check her shop out here and her blog here.

Making herbal products is an absolute joy for her, and she knows that her love of Nature comes through in her work! (and it does)
She is a certified Herbalist with over ten years of experience healing with herbs.

She makes her herbal products with the finest organically grown and ethically wild-crafted ingredients available. Why Organic? Because she believes that her products are truly better when she uses ingredients which have NOT been irradiated, treated with pesticides or sprays. Your body and spirit needs good, clean energy! Making every product with only organic ingredients costs a little more, but it's worth it!

Summer Sea Herbs is a small company, and she personally makes all of her products in small batches, by hand. This ensures quality control and product effectiveness.

With many years experience as a medical Herbalist, and many more as a practicing Green witch, all her products are made with great care and skill. Whether you want a delicious tea or need an incense blend to assist in magickal workings, you can be confident that she has taken great care in blending your item. All her medicinal and magickal formulas are tried and true, developed from the personal needs of her community over the years. She keeps her product packaging to a minimum, re-usable and recyclable, to have a low impact on the environment. It makes her very happy to help people through the use of herbs!

She has a wonderfully unique shop, with something for everyone!

Featured Etsy Artist

Here is my first featured etsy artist Giftbearer. You can see her etsy shop here
and her blog here.

When first entering her shop I was blown away by her unique jewelry. WOW!
She has been an artist, pretty much from birth. Dipping her fingers into all sorts of things! She works in several mediums; including acrylics, watercolor, drawing, clay sculpture, and jewelry. A multicultural influence is evident in her work reflecting a diverse heritage of Iroquois Indian, Hawaiian, Russian Jewish, and French Canadian. She is strongly influenced by nature, political and social issues, and uses her art to educate the public.

She has mentored artists with mental illness in a psychosocial rehabilitation program she developed called Artvision which she operated out of her home on a shoestring budget. The project was fully self-supporting, receiving no government funding.

Artists in the program received help and guidance in learning all aspects of how to run an art-based business. This prepared them to earn money using a talent they already have.

She has become involved in a number of volunteer efforts; including providing online support and treatment information to people with autoimmune diseases, and has donated art items to benefit the survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

Just a wonderful lady all around! Stop by, check her out, and grab some beautiful, unique jewelry while you are there! I am still in awe with her items!

Autumn Harvest

This is a piece for the Autumn EAST Challenge. You can check out all the challenge pieces here.
EAST is an awesome VERY talented group from etsy. You can learn more about EAST here.

I am so excited how this piece turned out. This was a vision that has been swimming around in my mind for awhile. I used different cottons, organic cottons, batik cottons, hand dyed canvas, and a piece of vintage upholstry fabric for the moon. I appliqued it all together with different colored embroidery threads. My husband made a frame from stained poplar to compliment the piece. You can see more pictures and details about this piece here.
