Artist Share!

Hello All!
Some of you may know that from time to time I create a video tutorial...
and sometimes I get e-mails about projects that artists have created after watching the videos. I absolutely love hearing from those who have watched the videos and I totally enjoy seeing what they have created.
Today I wanted to share with you what they have kindly shared with me (with their permission). 

Carmen Willis sent me a very kind letter
telling me how much she enjoyed creating her Fairy School house. Here is an excerpt from her e-mail.
"...This schoolhouse took me almost 6 months to make. Since I live near a forest, I gathered my own moss and cleaned and dried it for this project. I still am adding little things to it, but wanted to show you, what I've completed so far. I made little chairs, a table and benches, a shelf to put little potion bottles, canned goods, maps & books...I had so much fun and enjoyed taking my time to make it."


The teachers and students....all gathered for school....


What a amazing school it is too!
(and she gathered and dried all this moss herself!)


Here is a tiny student standing on a spool, next to a shelf full of all kinds of interesting items!


One sleepy fairy....must have been up all night studying for the exam mentioned on the blackboard...


Are they not magical fairies???


Sweet table and bench!

Thank you Carmen for sharing you creativity with me and for allowing me to share on my blog!
I love your "natural" approach to your project, and all your magical creative touches!

 Barbara Mintmire sent me this picture of a group of beautiful shoes!

"My friends and I spent most of the day making paper shoes and crepe paper flowers based on your tutorials. We had a blast designing, cutting, gluing, etc., with breaks for a potluck lunch and later for dessert. Thank you so much for sharing the fun! I’m attaching a photo of our shoes."


Thank you so much Barbara for sharing your creative group fun!

 Here is a beautiful paper shoe made by Amy Bryant Kelly. She was very kind to send me this image and an explanation of her shoe..."This is part of a graduate project for a friend". Amy has used some handmade papers, and created beautiful embellishments!


Gorgeous Amy! Thank you so much for sharing with me, and letting me post about it.

I have been working on and off since summer on a new series for making mixed media jewelry...something I have a passion for!  But as this year has been super challenging for our family, as you may have noticed, I have not posted near as often, or any videos.....boo hooo!

I am keeping my fingers crossed for a really great 2013!
And hopefully my new jewelry basics videos will get done soon, which will be FREE...
and maybe even a video series much more detailed about mixed media jewelry inspiration and creations.
We shall see : )

If you have not seen my tabs above with my free videos, why not check them out? 
The paper shoe video is almost at 20,000 views, not much by youTube standards, but really exciting for me!
This is a handmade Christmas for us, and I am always looking for new ideas....

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Terri

That fairy school is a thing of such beauty. What amazing creativity! Obviously a labour of love and all inspired by you, Terry. I also enjoyed looking at that lovely assortment of slippers. They are all so colourful and unique! Eventually, I plan to take the domino tutorial. I am so fascinated by those beautiful dominos you make. Take care! May 2013 be a wonderful year for you!

Well, Carmen has certainly done a job well worth every minute of the six months. I even noticed that these faeries have a sweet little cross. How very spiritual of them. I love the way the teacher is working diligently with one of the students too. Detail is key and Carmen has it down.

The shoes/slippers are of course incredibly delicate and lovely. In fact, I love all of your tutorials and have enjoyed making whatever you have to offer, Terri!

Thank you for sharing.
