Featuring Friday: AngelasPaperArt...*

Today's feature is an amazing shop I found on an amazing thread (30 minutes of fame).

It's AngelasPaperArt. This shop makes wonderful items and she has such an amazing talent that everyone should know about her. Her shop is about Paper Quilling items. So check it out!

 Here are the questions & answers:

1)Describe your shop in just a few sentences
My shop offers a variety of paper items, many of which are quilled. Some of my items include cards, ornaments and keepsake boxes.

 2)What inspires you?
My inspiration comes from all types of places; magazines, prints and patterns on fabric, architecture and the nature we see all around us. I also look at art from different mediums to study how I can translate them into paper items. 

3)What would you say makes your shop unique?
My shop is unique, because it features an art form that a lot of people don't know about. Paper quilling is a beautiful technique that I hope to master and introduce to a wider audience. My shop also has several different types of paper art objects.

4)What is your favorite item from your shop?
My favorite item is my Japanese Quilled Fan. I came across a picture of a metal wall hanging fan in a magazine. I tore out the page and used it as a jumping off point to make one out of quilled paper. 

5)Any new ideas coming soon for your shop?
I'm looking to diversify my shop even more. I intend to start a line of entirely quilled keepsake boxes, but right now I'm doing so trial runs to work on perfecting them. So stay tuned.

 My personal favorite from AngelasPaperArt gotta be this lovely snowflake ornament. I'm in love with it.

I would like to have...*

I would like to have the imagination and innocence of a 4 yr old, the wisdom of an old world traveler, the youth of an energetic teenager, the drive and risk-taking of an adventurer, the kindness of a genuine person, the money of a millionaire, the passion of a hopeless romantic in love, the memory of a child, the creativity of a true artist, the excitement  of a child during Christmas morning, the relaxation of just sitting at the beach, the giving nature of a mother, the instinct of a savage animal, and the brains of a genius.

i want to be a world traveler, i want to meet the world, i want to be able to take risks, but smart risks, i want to expand my shop, my creativity, my knowledge, my feelings, my happiness.

Featuring Friday: Shannon Leigh...*

I said earlier this week that as soon as I hit 30 followers I was going to start featuring wonderful Etsy shops. So today is my first one and I hope you all like.

Shannon Leigh is an amazing photographer with an amazing etsy shop from Lawrenceville, GA, USA.

I asked her a few questions  for her feature so here they are:

1) Describe your shop in just a few sentences:

 "Let's see... I am a photographer. I particularly love nature photography! I sell fine art prints of my best work. I love taking pictures of flowers, birds, insects & anything else I find in nature. Its hard for me to decide which ones to list sometimes because I love them all!"
"I specialize in nature photography. I sell fine art prints, handmade notecards and keepsake boxes."

2) Why will people love your items?
"I think people will love my shop because who can resist beautiful art! Especially art found in nature!"

 3)What would you say makes your shop unique?
"I feel like my shop is a little different compared to other photographers because I also love making things! Im always trying to think of different ways to display my art. I make wooden keepsake boxes with my own nature prints decorating the tops of them. I also hand make my photo notecard sets complete with handstamping. I have just started making wooden photo plaques that come ready to hang. No framing needed! These are fun to mix & match sizes & shapes. They look great anywwhere! Coming soon! Journals with my art prints on the cover!"

 4)Any sales or promotions?
"I am having a buy one get one free sale on all my fine art prints!! Free shipping on my note card sets! Take advantage while you can. Through the end of July only!"

Help her promote her shop and make some sales so go and take a look!!..

My personal favorite from this shop would have to be this amazing print!
