I couldn’t think of a better way to begin a new tradition of sponsoring artists, photographers, and fellow bloggers than to begin with this trio. This week I was thrilled to host three fantastic artisans and I sincerely hope that you visit their shops as they all have something beautifully unique to offer.

Anne, of Gardanne: Handmade Glass and Enamel Beads, entices us with the vibrant color and graceful curves in her glass beads. Currently, her enameled keys are at the top of my wishlist.

If you’re less into making and more into wearing, Lisa, from Grimm & Grete: Urban Bohemian Chic Jewelry for the Modern Romantic, draws you in with her gorgeous jewelry. I’m drooling over this blue quartz necklace.

Maria, from Garden Path Beads, had me at whimsical. She creates fun, colorful glass beads such as a bird’s nest and eggs, adorable carrots and radishes, and my favorite, the starfish. Imagine the fun you’d have creating jewelry using her beads!


Interested in having your shop, website, or blog featured? I’m interested in promoting YOU and giving you a space. That space is to your immediate right. See the three, rather large, featured ads? Yep, that’s it! And the best part is that it’s free. Yep, free – otherwise known as spreading the love.

The details…

Visit this weeks artisans then come back and let everyone know what you loved. Comments are open through Saturday night, October 29th and on Sunday morning, we’ll draw for FOUR spaces to go in the “Featured Artists” spot in the right sidebar.

If you’re chosen, your advertisement will be added ASAP and it will run through next Saturday night. Next Friday we’ll do the same thing except that time it’ll be all four free ad spaces! No catch, no charge, no nothing except advertising space for your shop, website, or blog. Capeesh?

For the full details (size requirements, etc), head over to this page. But be sure to come right back here and comment to toss your name in the hat.

Good luck!!!
