Etsy pick: Tadworks

I've been trying to avoid posting Etsy picks directly from my Etsy favorites list in an effort to find new designers but I just can't hold back any longer! I'm in love with everything in Tadworks' Etsy Shop.

She hand makes these little characters, named Po, out of polymer clay. There is so much detail in such a small space. YAY! How could you ever be sad with one of these little guys sitting next to you? They are so adorable! And they all have cute little companions or props that give them each a distinct personality. Someday I hope to have a little Po friend for my desktop.



P.S. I'd like to mention that at least half of my inventory at Fashion Ninja has sold already!
It sold much quicker than I had anticipated, truthfully. I was a little nervous at first so I let an entire month go by before checking up on my wares. Finally I bit the bullet and got the response I wanted!

Etsy pick: Cecilia Jane

I love these! More than that, I think she has some pretty original elements in her designs. She seems to have a knack for detail which is something I can appreciate.

Here's another great example of her exceptional attention to detail:

Her original designs can be found on Etsy @ Cecilia Jane.



My friend and I found out yesterday that we were accepted into the Art vs Craft show in July! There were tons of great tables there last year so we're very flattered and excited. I didn't participate last year; I just went along to help out and get a feel for the environment. There were about 80 tables with a huge variety of seemingly random hand made items; most of them extremely well made. I think four of us are sharing a table this year so I feel we will be able to offer a lot of diversity. All of us sell (or will sell) items at Niche Milwaukee, which is co-owned by one of the people sharing my table. I don't have too much specific information on what we'll be offering at this point since the show is still pretty far away. However, I believe an element of surprise is beneficial so I'll limit the posting to my items for now.
