Judy from JAMsCraftCloset says I love painting on glassware. Flowers seem to be my thing. This is such a sweet Nebulas blue floral vintage candy dish. I believe it would be lovely on anyone’s table filled with candy, pickles, cheese, crackers, etc. Someone has to love it as much as I do.

zizzybob from zizzybob said I made these airplane quilt blocks with the idea that they would be used to make a baby or small boy’s quilt. But I did have one lady who purchased a set to make a Quilt of Valor for an Air Force Veteran. You just never know where these things will end up.

They catch so many colors in different lighting and, as you can see, there is definitely some ‘Nebulas Blue’ in there.

Organic Materials

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Organic materials are pretty hot and in demand. They can be in anything handmade, vintage, supplies, furniture and so much more. Organic materials could be resin, plastic, wood, clay and more. We want to see your shop items made with organic materials.

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says this decorative jewelry box is 100% eco-friendly. It is made of natural full pine wood. The top of the box is hand-painted with artistic oil paints. The painting depicts a singing bird Meadowlark in a natural, spring scenery. A great gift idea for nature’s lover.

Betsy from Betsysbijoux said From the 1950’s, this hand carved wooden Christmas tree with a single flower ornament is a one of a kind piece and a unique take on the classic Christmas tree.

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset states this sign is an example of up-cycled and re-purposed fence slats. Once my new privacy fence was installed after Hurricane Irma, there were some slats left over. The fencing contractor gave them to me. I love how my fence slat signs turned out. What do you think?

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt says living among the bayous and swamps in Southeastern Louisiana, nature and the environment are important elements in our shop and our lives. So we make every effort to use reclaimed and organic materials in creating our items. I chose to feature the cat wall hanging. I believe that showcases our commitment to the environment as it is made from reclaimed cypress wood from our area.

For the Patio

Contributor post by Mairi from mairidesign

As the summer continues and we get to sit on the patio enjoying our free time, we look to decorate these welcoming spaces with pretty handmade ornaments like a hand-painted portrait of your pet, maybe hang a sign for your visitors to read, or perhaps add to the serenity with a lantern or some candles.

The Christmas in July team have selected some items to make your patio the envy of the neighbours.

zizzybob from zizzybob says

Do you have candles on your patio? Then you’ll need a mat underneath it. I have several to choose from in a variety of colors and seasonal themes.
Do you want a specific color? Just ask, I can make one in any color to match your mood or decor.

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says

These vintage brass hurricane lanterns would be the perfect lighting for the outdoor patio. They would make a soft romantic glow on the patio for that special dinner with the love of your life. Sit them on a table or hang them from the ceiling or tree. No matter how you use them, they will provide an awesome atmosphere for whatever is happening on the patio.

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says

A colorful ornament hand-painted on a wooden board, secured with clear varnish, is perfect for decorating your patio. The picture is made on an oval board and it is very decorative. This one painting depicts a portrait of a little Westie dog, but you can also order a similar one with your favorite pet: dog, cat, horse, etc. If you would like to decorate the wall of your patio, you can choose a larger size.

If it is customary to take off shoes before entering your home, this “Remove Your Shoes” sign is perfect for the patio to encourage others to do the same. The sign is primed and painted for outdoor use and then additionally painted by hand and tied with a silky cord.

International Friendship Day: August 5th, 2018

Contributor post by Mairi from mairidesign

International Friendship Day is on 5th August. What a wonderful way to celebrate the good times you’ve shared with your friends and to show them how much you appreciate them. Spend time with those who make you laugh and support you when you’re feeling low, or maybe it’s a time to re-connect with long lost friends from school. However you celebrate, wouldn’t it be nice to get some special gifts for those you appreciate?

The CIJ team have selected some gifts that they know your friends would love.

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says

The best friend is someone really important. This person deserves a large and valuable gift. But if you want to make a small surprise, I suggest a small oil painting. Perhaps your best friend is an animal lover or dreams about a pet or maybe not. But always a dog is a perfect symbol of friendship. A miniature oil painting will be perfect for this occasion. If you need another pet portrait, please visit my shop. You can also order a portrait from your own photos.
