New Year New Friends

http://www.etsy.com/people/fishbaysunsets

I found this friend on Etsy first because of a Treasury created about Etsians who haven't had a sale yet. She turned out to be an inspiration and very lovely person. Her bio reads,

"Welcome to my Etsy studio, FishBay Sunsets, the heart of which is located near Fisherman Bay on Lopez Island, in the beautiful San Juan Islands of northern Washington State. The beauty and textures that surround me are reflected in my work, affirming that color and texture is my world."

Meet Doilie Darlings

This new friend makes clothes out of grandmother doilies. Don't you just love her creativity, imagination and commitment to all things beautiful. She is from Louisiana where creativity abounds. I'm a Christian Artist of many media, and totally obsessed (lately) with antique and vintage Crochet Doilies as a Fashion Element of Textural Interest. My Clothing Items are not for the Shy Woman, but Feminine with a Bold and Artistic Twist. I'll never get to make all the ideas I have for you, but I'll sure try, as you prepare for Strangers' Compliments, and extra attention from your Husband, too! ♥
