And the winner is...

Cynthia of New York State! She signed up for the give away on greenearthjourney and won!

Words, colors, images selected with care team up to weave hand-cut, hand-woven, recycled paper into this colorful, eco-chic pair of earrings. Each one is a unique globe friendly request to save mother earth's resources.

Congrats, Cynthia! Enjoy your eco-chic earrings -- they'll go out in the mail to you tomorrow!

The Free Art Project on Indie Fixx

So, I have been following the Indie Fixx site for a while. I'm always delighted to see the blog posts and featured artists. So recently, I have been REALLY enjoying the free art project section -- you can download art to enjoy for free. I'm redoing my studio and have found some super stuff to put on the walls. I absoutely adore this piece by Stephanie Nance.

This is the last day to get in your application! So, get the lead out and get your app done and sent it! Last year's bash was a blast and traffic and sales were terrific.

I LOVE this dress! It was made by Jennifer at the Craft Sanity blog. It took her about 30 hours and it's great!

custom map bag in progress

I've been working on these custom map bags for a few weeks and I just couldn't keep them to myself any longer! :) It's a shoulder bag and two coins purses made from maps from a family's trip to Hawaii.

I've totally fell in love with this idea and with this family's trip. They had a ball.

Many people have approached me in the past few months or so about custom bags. These are some of the types of paper people have been interested in having woven into a keepsake bag -- their thesis, their tax forms, their divorce papers, the wrapping paper from their wedding shower, the printed matter from their honeymoon, and the list goes on and on. What would you want your keepsake bag made out of?

If you're interested in a custom keepsake bag, please check out this listing in my shop and convo me about your idea so we can chat about it.
