Valentine's Day is a time to show others your love, but after a recent overflow in my mailbox - I'm realizing all the packages seem to be to me from me...hmmm, is that wrong? Well, in a way I'm showing love to some of my favorite creative people that I've been so lucky to connect with in my online world.
First, I received my package from "The Virgin Rose", whom you can read about in my blog post (from a year ago, already!?) here, and visit her fab Etsy shop here! When I first saw this, I think I stopped breathing for a second...it is just too marvelous that Madeline combined Frida, Mexican folk art, and mermaids into one fantastic piece! I mean, this was made for me (seriously, how could I not get it?) !
Next, I received my package from "Oma Linda", which was full of what she calls "Not Quite Right Hearts". These are sooo right to me, I purchased a couple from her last year and fell in love with them. So, I had to have more this year to give to my family and friends for Valentine's Day (okay, okay - this package wasn't all for me)! They are such a fun collage of love, color, and craftiness. They remind me of everything I adore most about the artist markets in Mexico. Please check out Linda's Etsy shop here for your own hearts and one of her fabulous blogs here (where I'm currently her featured artist *blush*)! I already gifted three of the hearts before taking a photo, but here are a couple for you to see:
Last, but not least, I received my package from "Michelle's Art is Life"! I saw on her blog, that she started offering crocheted bracelets in her Etsy shop, and I thought they were so cool. Not to mention, Michelle smudges and blesses them - which offers positive energy, protection, and abundance. I love that aspect! I requested a simple, black one with an Indian Head Nickel button. She even blessed mine additionally on her full moon altar AND sent me an awesome bonus bracelet with a skull button. *Pssst* Michelle is currently having a giveaway on her Facebook page!
Thank you so much to these ladies for bringing a smile to my face and enriching my life with their fabulous creations! xx
