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.

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.

London Kaye is a classically trained dancer with a passion for crochet (which she discovered at only thirteen years old). After receiving a dance scholarship to NYU, she got acquainted with the local street art scene and began doing public work. Here are two of my favorites.

How do I get my hands on this?

This came up in my Amazon suggestions. Best mouse pad I’ve ever seen. I may buy it for my such clicks and many scrolls. And I like its enthusiasm: “Wow.”

I tried to find this album on YouTube so we could take a listen. Art definitely looks the part(y) here.

Dapper Vegetable Man. Wait for it…nobody BEETS him! (See what I did there?)

I have no idea who makes these, but they’re rather amazing.

Anyone have these as a kid?
