It’s Friday! Are you a happy bunny?

Yay!! It’s ‪#‎Friday‬! Someone is a happy ‪#‎bunny‬ (possibly this little fella in my etsy store!). Busy morning today, providing our lovely guests in 3 Place des Arbres Vegetarian Bed & Breakfast their breakfast, and cleaning rooms before going to the Market (held every Friday here in Felletin). We have a friend coming for lunch. Then this afternoon we will be welcoming some more guests. Looking forward to the weekend as we have some friends visiting!!! (tripple YAY!).

If I have time I will take some more photos of the creations I have made this week, and put a video together.

 

Happy Tuesday Lovely People!

Good morning everyone! Well, we didn’t get any last minute people in the 3 Place des Arbres Vegetarian Bed & Breakfast last night, so that meant I didn’t have to get up to do breakfast for guests (the first time for I don’t know how long). But the dog decided that I should get up and take him for a walk instead. Tried to go back to bed afterwards but then the rubbish collection started, followed by the neighbours having a delivery of wood (preparing for a winter I hope is still a long way off!)

We have guests arriving later, but no rooms to clean today, and no meals for this evening (so far) so ‘a day off’ of sorts. Another very hot day forecast here, so will take the dog down the river for a swim before midday and then listen to him complain all afternoon when his regular walk is denied because of the heat!

I made this ‪#‎TeenyWeeniePet‬ Tabby ‪#‎Cat‬ a few days ago. You can carry him around on your finger!

 

He is available in my Etsy store along with some other little characters, check it out if you have the time (all visits very much appreciated). 

I finished a Purple Dragon yesterday and started a red one last night, so will be finishing him and taking some pics later.

Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Spotlight on Deidre Dreams

Today, I am going to have a look at the creative talent that is Deidre Dreams

I love Facebook and twitter because you never know where peoples shares might lead you. One of these paths led me to another realm: that of Deidre Dreams.

The owner (Deidre?) lives in a small town in the south of the Netherlands in between rolling hills and meadows, where the wind always blows in new energy.”

Inspired by folklore, myths and legends Deidre Dreams creations are incredibly detailed works of art. She primarily uses Polymer clay to create incredibly detailed pendants, brooches and other jewellery, but she is also accomplished in the art of crocheting (something she learnt at an early age from her Grandmother and Mother). Combining the two allows her to create some really interesting, and original pieces:

Perhaps the success of Deidre Dreams is the witches, mermaids and other mythical creatures, featured on her jewellery are not generic: each one has a character and a story behind them: “All the characters that I make (the witches, the mermaids, the fairies, etc), they are not pulled from any official mythology source. They are my stories. The characters, the designs, their stories: they are my creations. I am inspired by paganism, Wicca, fantasy, fairy tales, folk tales, legends, and lots of other sources (as many artists are 🙂 ) but the characters I make are all a concoction of my own Deidre Dreams world.”

 

The characters shine through her work, and maybe it is this that draws people to them. In fact Deidre Dreams has facebook fans (amongst over 17,000 of them) who contact her and tell her how much her work inspires them to create themselves (whether that be in writing, drawing or sculpting): “I am deeply honoured to get so many messages of people telling me my work inspires them. I love that SO much! I love to hear that my work sparks something in someone that stirs passion and energy!  I also would like to say that I hope anyone who feels this way, will be respectful towards that inspiration and find their own way with it and welcome their own designs and characters.”

Why Deidre Dreams’ Facebook page is so popular is not a mystery: not only does she create unique, beautiful work, but she also interacts brilliantly with her fans, and followers. She is generous with sharing other people’s work too, which is great because she helps me travel to other peoples creative worlds too.

You can find Deidre Dreams on her own Website, on Twitter, on Facebook, Etsy and other locations too
