A Newbie and Undiscovered Beauty: Feature #3

What an awesome newbie with such an unique craft! This is silentlaunguages Custom Map Drawing.

Custom 9 by 9 inch multi-media drawing on either watercolor or premium drawing paper. In the past I have used watercolor, tea, coffee, tissue paper, dried flowers, india ink pens, drawing ink, and thread.

I will work with you as to what sort of landscape you would like. Ideas for shapes are free-form or anatomy. Your suggestions for color will also be applied to the custom drawing.

I love special requests, so feel free to ask for something different than what you see here!

Perfect gift for doctors, students, cartographers, and travelers.

Please allow 2 weeks for completion.

Send me a conversation or an email at cathedralanatomy AT gmail.com and I will be happy to start your piece for you!

So please check out Cartography of the Imagination!

Please let me introduce you to my undiscovered beauty, Pinka's Productions! A wonderful little shop full of sparkle and talent. Her new shop is delightful and she is working on some necklaces that will show soon!

This happens to be my favorite item in my favorite color!!!

Description: It's not for your toes but for your wrist, just like any other bangle bracelet. The difference is that this bracelet is made with a sock yarn called Tofutsies! :-) You can see the magnificent colors through the clear beads just enough and with enough sparkle to show off the focal bead in the middle. The bracelet measures a standard 7” around, but because its sock yarn, there is a chance of slight stretching with normal use. I can make a smaller bracelet if desired.

All purchases come in an organza bag perfect for storage or gift giving.

FREE 1ST CLASS SHIPPING! Delivery confirmation and insurance optional. Deliver confirmation: $.65 and insurance:$1.70 :-) :-)
Flat rate, Priority Mail shipping for $5 regardless of how many bracelets is also available and will include delivery confirmation. Insurance is optional.
Will ship internationally but please email for shipping quote.

I really like the Map Drawings, what a unique idea. The shop has some really great Maps in it.

The Bracelets are stunning. It surprised me she has had no sales as of yet. I hope you blog will bring some sales to both featured artists.

Great Blog by the way, always enjoy readding it.

What fun! So are you selling from your blog too? I saw the view cart button.

Jennifer I had been. I should probably remove it now. Everything I had for sale here I either moved to artfire or etsy or sold. I needed feedback on those other sites so decided to sell for there now! If you have questions about selling on blogs I am happy to share what I learned!

We are avid Pirates of the Caribbean fans in our house! We love maps and popup ship books. What a terrific map and details.

I really like the bracelet featured...the blue is so calming.

I like so many others lost my job of 17 years due to downsizing. Not too long afterward I had major surgery and found myself housebound. Sick of watching tv I started crafting. And I haven't stopped since. I knew I should and could create designs that enlighten and brighten your day.
After showcasing my designs in a craft fair and receiving such positive feedback decided to launch my etsy site. I hope my items bring joy and a smile to your face as we encounter some rough times in our economy.
We could all use a little reminder of times filled with imagination, hope and fun.
