Jeanne Oliver
  everyday is a holiday   the craftoholic

Dollar Store Crafts
I love this project because in NYC, you can find these for free, at the curb of most Manhattan offices. And how fun is it to paint it up and make it look new, right? Heather Mann's blog is awesome, and I love cheap creative projects. Art should always be about making art, not buying a product.

 

Everyday is a Holiday
Pink hair, and cupcakes, what more could you ask for? I'm happy to know Jenny personally, and love her "baked goods" theme in her artwork. And I love that she creates with her husband. How romantic, love can be. Her blog and the pictures she posts are so inspiring!

rebecca brooks Heather Foust Guest Curator
I have always felt the need to create something. My mother and father were both artists. There was a lot of creativity going on in my house everyday: painting, sewing, knitting, decopauging, candle making, cooking, making paper art, wood carving, playing music, and singing. So much creativity I guess I did not realize ...

When I started my journey down this path of vintage photos and fabrics I was so unpolished. It was new to me. So many people were already making collages. Where would I fit in this crowd of talented artists ...

Lovey
  Marijke van Ooijen   Lovey

Den Lille Lade:
Dorthe creates some of the most precious dolls I've ever seen. Her dolls are created with beautiful fabrics, laces, and trims. Check out the Fairy Doll in this post, it's really one of my favorites.

 

Marijke van Ooijen:
Marijke is so extremely talented at making bears and dolls with the most beautiful faces, eyes, expressions and clothing. Her bears and dolls are so unique you must see them for yourself.

 

I've enjoyed posting these photos of my Studio Haven because it gave me the opportunity to share a small glance into my heart for art. My love for vintage photos and fabrics blended together in harmony is the driving force for my fabric photo collages.

 

Marie French Marie French Guest Curator
I was first influenced by art at a very early age, as my mother is a very creative person and artist in her own right. We grew up in a very creative household. We moved a lot because my father was in the military, so we were creative in our household with everything from meals to Christmas gifts. I have two brothers and two sisters and we are all creative ...
