My purchases for this month so far have been a special request of about 40 large nails from Pvcatalina through Etsy.com. I am working on multiple pieces similar to my piece called "Weaving My Story." These nails are going to be a treat to work with. You can also post a photo of the finished piece to the Etsy shop to show them what you have done with their supplies. Free marketing for you!
Another goody for myself was purchased from artist Linda Richichi. This professional artist is selling in galleries. Yet in the spirit of our troubled economic times, she is offering original mini paintings in prices we all can afford. They have a loop to be worn as a necklace. Each week she posts a mini painting, and the bidding begins. I won last week's and I love it! it is beautiful, unique and a low enough price that I could buy it without hesitation. She is also donating a percentage to charity. What a way to share.
Check out what Linda has for this week! Here is a picture of Circle #8 from her blog:
