Becky Kelly and her BEAUTIFUL art. Becky creates a world seemingly suspended in time: a world where children dangle their toes in clear running streams; best friends giggle and daydream in the comfortable crook of an ancient tree; and ethereal fairies doze on dew-dappled leaves. But Becky is quick to point out that what she paints is not fantasy. The scenes she paints are based on the real world, with just a sprinkling of stardust to add a bit of magic. And, Becky is having a SPRING SALE – 15% Off!
The Yarn Kitchen – Stella’s shop is packed full of such lovely goodies for the home. She knits and crochets, felts and sews and, in her own words, creates a rainbow with fiber. There are so many new and wonderful treasures to usher in the Spring. Be sure to like The Yarn Kitchen’s Facebook Page to keep abreast of sales and awesome giveaways.

A Child’s Dream Come True : Debbie offers natural crafts, toys and more to nurture the child’s sense of life and imagination. In fact, the nurturing of imagination doesn’t stop with children… it was a result of the BEAUTIFUL wool and fiber I found at A Child’s Dream Come True that I first fell in love with needle felting. Looking through their gorgeous colored wool, I’m like a kid in a candy shop! I have found quite a few of my favorite felting books at A Child’s Dream too…
