When being Blue is awesome!

Here we are again with another HAF blog ring post. This week's featured HAF member is lisianblue. I have 'known' Kris, the creative goddess behind lisianblue, for a while now and I have to say she is a really lovely lady. And she is super talented!
She works with a lot of different materials, including yarn and glass. Her glass creations are some of my absolute favourites. So let's take a look at some of her creations.

Just amazing artistry. Check out lisianblue on ArtFire for more of her creations, and take a look at her great blog for lots of great posts.

Tis a pity yarn isn't Edible!

A weird title I agree, however in this case I think it is entirely appropriate. This is my post for this week's featured member on the HAF blog ring. This time around it is the delightful Gina from Dahlish Knits.. and let me tell you, her work really is 'dahlish'!
Dahlish Knits can be found on the recently upgraded Handmade Artists' Shop, and her store includes such treasures as these...

So drop by Dahlish Knits on Handmade Artists' Shop and don't forget to check out her blog as well, for lots of cool posts.

The Jewelry Geek

I was very slack last week when it came to the HAF blog ring. This was mainly due to a horror week at home with kids and gastro..erk. However last week I was actually the featured member, and so in the tradition of the blog ring I will do a blog post on the featured member from the second blog ring list. This happens to be a fellow jewellery maker known as The Jewelry Geek.
Talent behind this store is Kristin, a Navy wife and mother of a little boy, who has been making jewellery for 15 years. She has a store on Etsy which features her lovely pieces. She also has a blog where is features other artisans. So let's take a look at some of her great creations....

This is a lovely fresh looking bracelet, with some wonderful sparkle.

It's purple and it has a butterfly! She must have been thinking about me when she created this one! :P

I really like this piece, it has interesting shapes and angles.

What a lovely sunny piece, perfect for summer!

All these wonderful pieces and more can be found at The Jewelry Geek on Etsy.. check her out!

Baby, You're Beautiful.

It is time for another HAF member to receive the Haffina treatment as part of our current blog ring.
This week it is the wonderful Sandi from IKnitQuiltSew. She creates wonderful items, especially for babies! Let me show you some of my favourite pieces from her Etsy shop.

I reckon my daughter would love this doll!

These would have been great when my boys were little! Maybe for a grandson instead LOL!

I wish I had had these when my daughter was a baby! They are gorgeous!

Now this one was obviously made with me in mind!!

I love quilts, and having once started a quilt, that never got finished, I have enormous respect for anyone who makes them!
There are lots more wonderful items to see, so go check out IKnitQuiltSew for yourself!
