Works on paper and a couple made from paper. Here’s a quick post about some artists who have caught my attention lately.


Simone sent me the link to the lovely paper dolls by Portuguese artist Ana Ventura. You can purchase her postcards as seen above here (don’t trust me on the euro conversion, but I think you can purchase these for under $7).


Another paper artist, Patricia Zapato of A Little Hut creates wonderful cut paper images like Hiding, above (8″x10″, $35).


Just added the Etsy shop of Creative Thursday to my new Etsy Favorites page. A print of buttercup (8.5″x11″), above, is available in her Etsy shop for $35.



My front porch smelled like rosemary mint today as I opened the door to see my package from 4th Ave Soap Co.  I bought these soaps for teacher gifts and they are truly beautiful and smell divine.  Check out all of her bath and body products in her Etsy shop.  If you’re looking for holiday gifts be sure to order before December 5.

These would also make wonderful hostess gifts (see yesterday’s post).

I’ve been seeing Russian nesting dolls, or matryoshka, everywhere!  Go to Etsy and you’ll find jewelry, handbags, tees, stationery, hair clips, fabric, and of course, wooden nesting dolls.  I am getting on this bandwagon as I love the sweet faces and bright colors of the dolls.  I bought some fabric to make jumpers for the girls and I am working on an embroidery design for pillowcases.  For more on the history, check here.  Here are a few picks from Etsy that I particularly like.  Click on the photo to view the Etsy shop.
