Craftsec Matryoshka Dolls

Posted in art, craft, dolls with tags , , on June 7, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Craftsec puzzles me. I first came upon these fantastic owl nesting dolls and was astonished that they were only $23 and appear to be entirely hand painted.

Further perusing of the site revealed the most reasonable prices for seemingly endless hours of work (the ones below are $24). What had I run into here? Someone who tries to sell mass produced items on Etsy under the guise of being handmade…or the most prolific, independently wealthy artist who happens to have a singular passion for Matryoshka doll creation?

Rgardless, both the creative and traditional dolls are great, and you can’t beat the price.

I rarely make political statements on this blog, but seeing the news nowadays is enough to make some of us wish for this option.

Kerri Pajutee Miniatures

Posted in cats, craft, you can't handle the cute with tags , , on June 5, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Keri Pajutee’s hand crafted miniatures could very well be the answer to my irrational wish to always be covered in cats.

These little cuties are constructed in mixed media at standard dollhouse 1:12 ratio. If I had one I’d keep it in my pocket or purse for emergency doses of feline energy.

There are many other animals in her portfolio as well. You can read about how she makes them here.

Weird Kid Club has a small collection of laser cut, hand finished lapel pins that are pretty great.

A Kewpie doll! I love the Kewpie doll.

The other ones are cool too.

Ah, refreshing summer treats.

Gorgeous!

This looks like an awesome model kit.

I love this painting. Such a sense of longing.

I left the trademark that says “for personal purposes only,” because I imagine all of us have ultra-cute kitten purposes.

On the other hand, I see no earthly purpose for this:

So…extra crotch room for Chuck Norris style kicks was a selling point?

Ciou

Posted in art with tags on June 1, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

How in the world have I not posted about Ciou before? (Actually, I haven’t posted about many of my all time favorite artists because I always have a flood of new material pouring in).

Jellyfishsong

Her style is so unique, when you see a Ciou piece…you KNOW it’s Ciou.
Axolotl-riding

Black lines, dense color and big eyes aplenty, her work is almost dizzying to look at, in the best possible way. It’s a psychedelic twirling and merging of worlds.
