Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a beautiful day of giving thanks! During these holidays John and I really try to stay at a steady pace. So everything we make is very well made and there is no OMG stress. In our online stores most everything is made to order. But this year we have some “READY TO SHIP SECTIONS”. We have been making the things we make for over 25 years and have learned there is no way to have every single thing we make sitting there ready to ship out .
This year we have ready to ship leather handbags, beaded handbags , medicine bags wallets, and a few pair of baby moccasins. You can find all of these sections in our ETSY SHOP THUNDER ROSE , in the first three sections after the ON SALE section. Just so you know we are running a sale. When…
We are in the shoot heading for the Holidays. Some of us look forward to it and some try to get by. Some of us craft our way through. We are makers, crafters and we work in many different mediums.
What better kind of gift than one you make yourself or one you buy that is handmade by a small business owner. If you are just learning to craft ,what better time than during this season when everyone is stressed out. You can focus your attention on making something beautiful for someone you love or shop online out of the long shopping lines. You can get your Children and Grandchildren to learn how to be creative with new craft ideas. How fun is that! It will most certainly be a special occasion, one that will be remembered for a lifetime.

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

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.

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.
Sharon has a wide variety of beautiful handmade lampshades, folk art wooden bowls , plates and so much more. She has something for every holiday and season. Be sure to go by Ravens Bend Folk Art and see all the handmade spring and Easter folk art.
