The Wonderful World of LisianBlue

Royal Purple
Hmmm! I must remember to ask her where she got the name of her business! Regardless of what or where she got the name, she is a very talented lady! I mean just look at this awesome off white scarf!                                                                                          

Luscious red Scarf!!

Kris has such skills because she was fortunate enough to have a grandmother who taught her to crochet, it has been handed down. Her love of this ancient art is evident in each piece she lovingly hand crochets! And she also does custom orders! Shop with Kris at lisianblue

Thanks for stopping by, I would love for you to follow me here and at my other blog Nancy's WildWire Art blog

Meet Our Fearless Leader Andrew of HAS

Meet Andrew, and his lovely wife Kimberly!
HandmadeArtist.com came into being after Kimberly tried multiple selling venues and Andrew had to listen to her complaining over what they did or did not have.  Ever the one to fix the problem, Andrew spent countless hours researching and questioning and eventually a new forum and selling venue was born.  The mission statement embodies the couple’s love of handmade and the desire to see handmade showcased as the art that it is without competition of mass produced products. In this case fearless leaders come in pairs, lol:) 
I have only been a part of this great group for a short time but I am confident we are going to have a long happy relationship. The better I get to know these two the better I like the the way they work and the heartfelt dedication they give to all of us, and HAS.
OOPS!  My goal is to feature Andrews' shop.

Andrew has so many wonderful creations, I had to use a lot of restrain to only chose a few:) After you check out his other pieces I know you will agree. HAS Chainmaille by MBOI               

 Stop by, and register at the HAF forum and join our lively conversations about Handmade, Thanks!!

Featuring Artist Robin Marie Pedrero

This is artist Robin Pedrero and her buddy Maximillion
I had the privilege of getting to know Robin a couple of years ago when I joined a group called Unique Women in Business. As I got to know Robin better, I became more and more enchanted with her work. But that is not the only quality that drew me to her. She is has such a warm genuine personality you can't help but love her.
If I were to describe her in one sentence I would say, Robin is the most dedicated, passionate, talented, resourceful, generous artist I have ever met!
She is absolutely tireless in her devotion to her art. You will not hear her complain and Robin never waits for an opportunity to knock. She goes hunting, and has the drive it takes to follow through with her commitments no matter how demanding her schedule:)

This wonderful print hangs in my bathroom, and really brightens my day with vivid color, and all the hidden images spark my creativity:) I asked Robin to describe this for me here's what she said. "Jackson's Chameleon although bright and cheery is actually about diaspora, homelessness and relocation. The chameleon has re adapted to it's new environment. It is about being content wherever you may be. There behind him are a set of stairs to nowhere, taken from my personal experience of stairs and partial foundations left where homes once were standing"
Jackson's Chameleon


This is a wonderful example of how deeply she feels her current surroundings and the past. This truly shows in her passionate art!
This was the first art print I bought from Robin,it won't be the last I have a wish list:)

"Who do you serve"

Quote from Robin "Who do you serve" is an oil painting with multifaceted meanings, initiated by the title. Just think about that title. Serving our personal needs and serving others in our daily lives takes balance and faith."

Everyday as I make my morning coffee it reminds me to be grateful for the people I serve and that I serve them to honor God.

I know you will want to see more of Robin's art and learn more about her.Just check out her Face Book fan page Robin Pedrero.!
Thank you so much for reading my blog, please remember to follow me and leave a comment:)  Don't miss my contact links, I love hearing from you!

Paying Tribute to an Artist lost too soon....

I never had the privilege of getting to know Janelle from Jewelry by Janelle50  . However, I own this lovely bracelet from her. This is Purple Heart wood and Chainmalle, I  acquired it after she was gone. One of her friends from Handmade Artist Shop (HAS) is helping her family sell the rest of her designs to pay her expenses and I saw a posting on FaceBook.
That is not common in today's hurry hurry world, but, on Handmade Artist site it is no surprise. We are a relatively new group, still small, but growing. You make friends fast here, it is a warm loving helpful crew and I am proud to say I am part of it.
Since I own this lovely bracelet, I had an opportunity to hold it and see the love and care that she put in to her creations. I feel we have a connection though her bracelet, her art is a reminder that she was here, she had worth. She has left a lovely legacy!
 Here is the link to her shop, Janelle's HAShop   She has a few things left, they should be worn and appreciated.  All are 50% off original price. I hope you take this opportunity to visit her shop and own a piece of her work, a piece of her heart.
Enjoy the photos of her lovely work, thanks for your attention.
God Bless you!
