Sweet Temptations

Here are some goodies for you to enjoy. I recently discovered two wonderful artists on Etsy.

The first artist is Donna of Cookie Sunshine. Her whimsical illustrations capture the imagination. I fell in love with the two drawings below.

I have always wanted to draw and these give me inspiration every time I look at them, though I haven’t attempted any drawing yet. ;~)

Of course the theme of the second drawing would be shoes!

The second artist is Gigi of Pinks and Needles.

I went head over heels for her adorable pâtisserie pins! Who wouldn’t? I’m afraid I might be addicted to these now.

I had this amazing little stool for one of my fairies and I turned it into a pin cushion for these delectable sweets.

For some more fun please check out their links here and here.

Have a Beautiful Weekend!

You can draw! All you have to do is pick up a pencil/pen and just go for it. You may not make something just like this artist (who I love) but you will do your own thing. As for the pins, now I'm hungry! Thanks, Nancy!! :-)

Hello there, I was reading Marie Antoinette when I noticed she purchased a pair of your shoes. I had to come and investigate further. Your shoes are incredible! WOW!

Have a beautiful day. I have enjoyed visiting.

Cheers! =D

On the mend and catching up...

And the pins are too cute!

Miss Sandy said...

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet words of encouragement. It is a little scary to step out and share what I consider to be "heart" art, those things you create for yourself that are full of personal meaning and symbolism. Maybe I will do it again some time. Have a great week!
