Kristine Mays


In the flurry that was my handmade holiday, I neglected to post a photo of the beautiful wire sculpture that I received in a swap just prior to Christmas from the talented Kristine Mays. Her "O" has been a lovely addition to the pieces that I surround myself with in my studio. Who am I kidding - my "studio" is a little built-in desk in our living room... nevertheless, it looks wonderful there. Makes me wish I was more adept with wire. You can purchase Kristine's work at her etsy shop.

I read Laundry Girl too! Must have followed her from your site, I imagine. Her work is fabulous, and does fit well with how I perceive your style. I like her writing just as much as her work: she bares her soul, acknowledges the difficulty in leading a creative life, and revels in it anyway. What inspiration I've found here in the crafty blogosphere!

Thanks for all of the sweet acknowledgment. Your earrings are definitely appreciated here in California!

A very lovely "O" and studio:o) Your studio is bigger then mine! Mind consists of a card table that has to be put away after every session! Hey where did you find that owl? It reminds me of an owl figure I had as a child. Hope all is well!!
