“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

Day 5 - Stroll the Shops for Christmas/Yule

Day 5 of 'Stroll the Shops for Christmas' and the shopping is easy! Did you ever imagine that you'd be able to shop from the comfort of your own home and have all your packages delivered to your door? I remember the days of fighting cold weather, crowds and carrying packages 'till my fingers were about to fall off. Not anymore!

Today's first artisan is Beckie from 'Beckie's Treasure Trove'. Beckie creates romantic, vintage looking jewelry that is meant to bring joy and a uniqueness of expression to the woman wearing it. She draws inspiration from Renaissance and Victorian era jewelry. And while Beckie believes in women's rights and strengths, she also believes that it is important for a woman to celebrate her femininity and beauty. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Beckie's Etsy shop . . .

The other artisan featured today is Paula from 'Artfully Decadent'. Paula is a unique artist in that she uses seed beads to knit, weave and embroidery her jewelry pieces on tiny steel needles. She is inspired by the colors of nature and the grace and beauty of antique and vintage jewelry. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Paula's ArtFire shop . . .

And visit Jan's blog 'Jan Tanis Designs' for more information on these two inspiring and creative artisans!
