"Fairy Wishes" Come True!

Hi Everyone~

For those of you who follow my personal blog, you will remember that I recently had "Faerie Wishes Week." But, here is a true-life fairy named Karen of The Graphics Fairy. Without her, many of us could not create what we do! Her images are amazing. If you've been to her blog (and I'll bet you have,) you know what I am talking about.

In addition to having fantastic blogs, Karen also has a gorgeous shop inside Luckett's Store.

Just look at the beauty that abounds!

And here are more of her shop's treasures!

If you haven't been to her blog before, I hope you will take your own fairy wings and fly over there right now and say "hi!" And if you have met Karen before, please send her a big "hello" from me!

Karen also has a new craft blog that you can reach from The Graphics Fairy! Go take a look around--you'll love it!!!

But, that's not all~Theresa also creates gorgeous jewelry--look at this dragonfly! Oh, I love it so!

And aren't these earrings beautiful? Every piece that Theresa creates is full of wonder and whimsy and when you go to her blog, you will see her smile that could light up the world!

Next, I would like you to meet Anna of Frosted Petunias...Anna's work is always sublime--and she just seems to be inspired from another realm.

Just look at Anna's lush work. Creativity abounds!

Here is an altered purse--Isn't it gorgeous?

And, oh my gosh, just look at the metal tag!!!
I hope you'll go visit Anna at Frosted Petunia's and say "hi!"

Barbara of Moore Whimsies is a fabulous gourd artist whose creations are in various galleries and she also teaches how to make some of these amazing pieces. Her work is so detailed and it is hard to imagine how she crafts such unusual pieces that have become timeless treasures in homes across the country. To visit Barbara, just go here!

Tee of the Altered Paper is always whipping up such lovely creations and each one is so varied! I always love to visit to see what she is up to--and I am always surprised and delighted.

A New Week--And Joyful Creations


Hi Everyone~

As many of you know, I am having "Excursion into
Beautiful" this week on my personal blog...And
as you can see by these creations of 3 talented
artists, their work definitely fits into this


Just look at this exquisite work by Sonya of
Counting My Blessings--Isn't it divine? Sonya is
a very talented fabric artist that weaves joyfulness
and scriptural messages into her pieces. Owning
a piece of her work is like having a blessing
for your own home.

Gerri Herbst

Gerri is a multi-talented, mixed media artist and design team
member. Her work has been published and her
pieces are so varied and amazing.

Gerri Herbst

Look at all the detail in her work--It is
so inspiring. When I visit Gerri's blog,
It's All Treasure, I never know what she will surprise
us with next! It is always a joy to visit and see what
she has in store.


Janet from Janet's Creative Pillows creates
such delightful pieces and I know that you will
"ooh" and "ahhh" over each one when you
go to visit her. (This is actually a wedding
dress form pillow--can you believe it?)


Isn't this Victorian shoe just stunning? Wait until
you see what other creations await you on her blog!

I hope you all have an amazing and creative week~

Some time this week, I hope you'll have a chance to
visit all 3 of these women at their blogs. And if you
do, please tell that Cindy sent you~I know they'll
be happy to hear it!
