My Eyes are on Spring from Handmade Artists

Today I will be doing a blog post to honor spring. A time of new beginnings.  Our featured artists are Kimberly and Andrew Kitchen. They are a lovely couple who are working very hard for the handmade community. They have two stores on Handmade Artists and are the creators of website for all handmade Artists. Their love for handmade went to another level when they started the Handmade Artist's Forum where all handmade artists from around the world can come and talk to one another about Art, how to sell art and just kick back and be friends. They also spend a lot of their time promoting Handmade Artists. These two have what I call " Good Business Karma". Out of their loving kindness of others and Handmade Art they gave birth to a quality and fair selling site for all handmade artists. Kudos to Kimberly and Andrew Kitchen you guys ROCK!
 Kimberly Kitchen Makin The Best of It has a beautiful collection of  handmade Jewelry. I personally love this 

 Andrew Kitchen Chainmaille by MBOI 
has a great collection of  awesome chainmaille necklaces, bracelets,earrings and pendants. This bronze piece is one of my favorites.

As you can see for yourselves. This is a very busy couple of talented artists that wear many hats. 
Now I would like to share some really cool handmade cards.
  Beth from Bethies Cards
I just found this beautiful Robin note card in Beth's store.
When I see a robin  I most certainly know that spring has sprung. I have fond memories of spring when I was a child. I grew up in Illinois and the springs were always greeted with Robin Red Breasts and their sweet song. Now I am in Arizona and I just love seeing these beautiful birds coming to visit every year. 

Another great spring sign is our precious butterflies.
Here is a beautiful butterfly note card that has bright bold colors.

Okay, so as you can see I have three totally great shops for you to check out for this new spring feature.

Now, I am going to share my shop with you. I love hummingbirds. They are another true sign of spring. They show up and start doing their dance bringing smiles to our faces. Here is one of my beaded hummingbird  leather bags.
