These is a couple examples of what I made for a local Christmas gifts fair. I did wallets, makeup bags, change purses and even key chains. Wow did they sell well. I had saved out several for gifts for friends too. I did not want them to see what they were getting so I had to wait to post. I also posted some to etsy but removed them when they sold locally.
Recently some of my friends were upset that someone had copied my idea... but the whole reason I post my work is so that I can encourage others to create art :) I am truly honored if someone likes what I have done enough to want to create something similar. I like to give a link back and a that would be great but I also understand that blogland is huge and we all belong to the same yahoo groups as well. Sometimes as artists we see something and it gets stuck in our creative subconscious and we really don't remember where we saw it so I understand that too .... now just go create something fabulous!!!
