Big Orange pumpkin greeting card

Big orange pumpkins and the blue sky above them – this is what this photo greeting card is all about. It captures the beauty of autumn with these exceptionally beautiful, very big pumpkins that I discovered during our fall festival a couple years ago. Wouldn’t this be a lovely Thanksgiving greeting?

It’s been a long hot summer here in Arizona and we have a lot more of it coming. The rains have really been helping to cool things down a little. There has been so many changes on Etsy for all of us shop owners it’s been hard to keep up with. Especially for teams. We do have fall coming and I am sure many shop owners are getting their fall items created.

One thing I am really enjoying is the NEW Etsy tool for running a sale. It is very easy to use. Everybody loves a sale.

I hope everyone is enjoying the end of the summer months and we look forward to seeing all the new beautiful creations coming in for fall from our

RAINBOW ARTISTS TEAM members.

Be sure to take a look at our team page shoppers guide.

Our dear friend and leader Deanna at Glowing Heart Studios .  has been busy . You should check out the really cool creations her and Kent have been busy creating.

Lilly Beads Designs Gift Ideas

 

Good evening everyone! I would love to show you some beautiful handmade jewelry art from Rainbow Artist team member, leader and my dear sweet friend Kathi Heale from Lilly Beads Designs.  Kathi makes a variety of beaded jewelry from beaded necklaces, bracelets, earrings and beaded leather wrap bracelets. She has beautiful jewelry sets and gifts that would be perfect for Mother’s Day or any holiday .

I am in love with her leather wrap bracelets. I have one that I wear almost everyday. They are so comfortable you hardly know you have something on your wrist. But they make what you are wearing pop. They are very , very cool!

Kathi takes customs orders so you can create just how many wraps you would like.

Here are a couple of my favorites that are in her Etsy shop

Now you see what I mean. Wow!  These are both beautiful designs with awesome colors. The button closures accent them and add a awesome flavor to bracelet. Not only are a lot of these bracelets unisex but they are perfect for all ages.

There are so many more of these to choose from. You really should go by her Etsy shop and check out all her beautiful Jewelry.

About Sharon

Folk Art – A Way of Life in Rural America

Welcome to Ravens Bend Folk Art. My name is Sharon Wittke and I live in the beautiful Shawnee Hills of southernmost Illinois where my studio window overlooks a peaceful pasture filled with grazing longhorn cattle.

I begin each day with a paintbrush in my hand. I’m a self-taught decorative artist, and my painting style is a blend of naïve, narrative and folk art with a touch of whimsy thrown in for good measure.

Using acrylics, I paint my original designs on a variety of surfaces. Wooden bowls and plates, chairs, three legged stools, cheese boxes, and antique kitchen utensils are among my favorite items to decorate. I scour local antique and resale shops for odd or interesting items to paint. My favorite subjects are Halloween, Christmas, other holidays, and scenes of rural life.

For inspiration, I recall the resplendent autumn days and blustery winter nights of my childhood home in upstate New York. Dancing witches, cavorting skeletons and grinning ghosts were among the many trick-or-treaters who roamed the streets of my village on All Hallow’s Eve. As a youngster, I heard colorful tales about tiny elves and grumpy belsnickles who lived in the snowy woodlands surrounding my town.

I’ve been strongly influenced by legendary American folk artists such as Edward Hicks, Rufus Porter, and Grandma Moses, as well as 20th century decorative artists including Peter Ompir, Jo Sonja Jansen, and Peter Hunt.

I began painting in 2001, following the September 11 attack. At the time, I was an Air Force operations officer at Scott Air Force Base in Belleville, Illinois. I discovered painting helped me overcome the same sadness and stress my fellow Americans were experiencing at that time. I’ve had no formal art training, and my first attempts at creating folk art were woefully lacking.

Humor is a key element in most of my designs, and my greatest reward is seeing a smile when someone views one of my folk art pieces. If you see a design that makes you smile, please contact me to create a folk art piece for you. See more in Sharon’s Etsy shop.

From Chris

“God’s beautiful creation inspires me, I love all things Natural. Proud of my Lenape (Delaware) & German heritage. Loved drawing when I was growing up, made Native jewelry for myself when I was younger, then life happened….I met the most loving, supportive man who became my husband, we were blessed with 3 wonderful children that I school at home. My love for creating was rekindled after I came across some beautiful stone beads and branches, didn’t come across them at the same time but ideas were brewing…I love getting out in nature to explore and collect materials. Always liked dream catchers…knew that one day I would make them. I find joy in weaving a web, it’s very calming.”

Chris is a wonderful person and a good friend. I am so happy that our paths crossed. She is one of our team leaders and we are Grateful for all she does. Thanks so much Chris!

From Janice :

“Flutterbyebeadsupply offers a unique, affordable selection of beads and jewelry-making supplies that won’t break your bead bank!

I’m an avid bead artist and started buying supplies in bulk to help keep my costs down. I know how important it is to have a nice variety of beads and supplies to work with, while also trying to stick to a budget. My goal with this new shop is to offer these beauties to fellow bead enthusiasts, while passing along the savings as well!

As the shop name implies, all inventory may come and go just as quickly as a fluttering butterfly on a hot summer day! So, please don’t hesitate to make your purchase now, items are not guaranteed to be restocked. ”
