Treasured Tuesday

Five Pretty Treasuries Ahead....

Connie of AsteropeBC started beading after a trip to the library with her pre-school aged children. Because the children were dissolving into tantrums, she had to choose a book in a hurry. A paperback with a beautiful netted bead collar on the cover caught her attention, and she has been beading ever since. 

The beaded brooch on the left is an example of her work. And here is the pretty pink treasury she made.

Kat from H2OWorksDesigns has been doing something creative ever since she was a young
child. For the past several years, she has been especially interested in graphic design,  illustration, and photography. 

Her shop offers wonderful digital collage sheets, clipart printables, and more. I have the pretty digital backgrounds shown at right, and love them.

Here is the treasury she curated.

Pat Parker of LehmanParker sells quality vintage beads and buttons of all types, as well as other supplies. The vintage white and purple plastic beads pictured are available in her shop. Pat is also a former art teacher, technical writer, creative director, and online designer. 

The Circle Game treasury below is her work.

Sarah Beth of MagnoliaSurprise offers Crochet and Needlework items in her shop like these pretty dishcloths. Sarah has always loved creating with her hands. She taught herself to crochet, cross-stitch, embroidery, felting, painting, and sewing.

This fun St. Patrick's Day treasury is her handiwork too.

FusionIllusion is a family based business run by Chuck and Renee, and their daughter,
Laura in Northridge, California. All their work is handmade and one of a kind like the four glass plates at right.

This is the charming patchwork treasury they made.

I hope that you've enjoyed these treasuries and meeting their curators.
