A Haven from the Maelstrom

Here I am back again with the second in the series of weekly Handmade Artists' Forum member features. This week's feature artisan from the Handmade Artists' Forum is Heather from Heather's Haven.

Heather and her partner are both artists with 6 kids and 2 dogs... there is the Maelstrom. As a mum of 5 myself I know how difficult it can be to parent lots of children, with their multitude of differences and personalities.
Art is their therapy.. there is the Haven. Heather has a particular gift with seed beads, producing some wonderful pieces.

She also not only has an Etsy store, but an ArtFire studio as well. She is one of the driving forces behind the Etsy HAF team, particularly the daily Spread The Love promotion.
And she likes Harry Potter.. what's not to love about her!

Drop by Heather's blog to see what she's up to, and drool over her creations in her Etsy and her ArtFire. She is a fabulous artisan and an asset to the handmade community.

Thank you for the lovely write up, Haffina! It's a comfort to know I'm not the only one with a lot of kids! I guess you get a lot of strange looks and 'OMG' comments when you mention your troop too!
Yes, I DO like Harry Potter.
Thank you everyone for the lovely comments!
