Two Special Blessings

Dore Callaway

Welcome Friends~I am so happy that you are here!

Dore Callaway

Today I am happy to introduce you to 2 fabulous artists. Their work is filled with heart and whimsy. Both of these women have had their work published in national magazines and have beautiful Etsy stores where you can shop to your heart’s content. And why am I featuring them? Not only because of their enormous talent, but also, because they are 2 special blessings in my life.

Dore’s gentleness and talent exude from its pages as she shares amazing creations that range from furniture to paintings that she creates...Have a look and you will be transported too!

Lynn Stevens--Pendants

Today I received my copy of Creating Vintage Charm magazine where I am the featured artist for their Spring issue. My "Nesting" piece, among other works I have created, was featured in it. This piece is in my Etsy shop waiting to find a permanent home.

Have a beautiful week--and happy creating!!!

  19. Cindy:

    I came here from Dore's gorgeous blog Burlap Luxe and fell in love and became a follower. Both women featured here are very creative talented souls. I have a wonderful piece of Dore's art work that I purchased from her Etsy shop and just adore it. I have it in my own home office/studio and it inspires me everyday. I don't know if I have become a better artist and poet but it makes me feel good every time I look at her art.
