One of the best things about my partnership with Fish Indie is that I don’t have to go far to
I have some of the best LAB sponsors. One of them is Lauren Podlich. Lauren has one of the hottest curated shops right now, A Mano, full of fantastic handmade goods from an amazing collection of artists. The A Mano shop was recently updated and I wanted to get Lauren’s take on what’s happening and what’s hot in the A Mano shop. Her are her picks:
Here’s another great artist from the network run by LAB sponsor Fish Indie: Nicole Ray and her Sloe Gin Fizz shop. I have to tell you, I’ve misspelled her shop name so many times in the past two weeks. You might remember that I included her calendar in my first calendar post for 2014. I thought you might like to see more from this talented maker.
This month’s FishIndie featured artist is Mara Magyarosi. One of my favorite reasons for having FishIndie as a sponsor is that they bring to my attention handmade artists that, even with all my searching, I’ve never seen. Mara’s Arosi Lee shop is pretty unique and I’m glad to shine the light on her creative use of photography.
One of the great things about having a sponsor like Fish Indie is that they are all about spreading the handmade love. Once a month, I like to feature one of the artists that appear in that handy widget that you see on my right sidebar. This month, I’m focusing on the work of Tiffany Kerr and her Twill & Print.
One of my best finds in the past few months comes from one of my wonderful sponsors, Louisa Podlich of A Mano. This is one of the most fantastic curated shops of handmade goodness on the web and there’s just too much goodness for one post. Hence, I’ll be doing a few features on the fantastic artist that Louisa finds for her amazing collections.
The Fish Indie network really is a great place for Etsy artists to be. I love having them as a LAB sponsor and I check my own sidebar regularly to see which talented artist will appear. Today we will focus on Olivia Ewing and her beautiful nature-inspired collection. Not only does Olivia have a passion for jewelry making, she also is deeply committed to helping others. Hence, a portion of her sales go to various charities that are close to her heart.
