While searching through blogland these past few weeks, I have been noticing how cute and clever some of the banners for my favorite blogs are. In the name of Spring cleaning~ I started experimenting with some new ideas for banners myself and after several attempts I fell in love with this Kewpie doll. So much so that I not only incorporated her into my banner but also my crafting this weekend! She is just so darn cute! I have always LOVED Kewpie dolls~ I admire them in the little glass cases at the antique stores all the time and now I feel like I have one of my own! I have added these new "dolls" to my etsy shop in hopes of bringing in some "Spring" cuteness around here!!! Have a GREAT week!
I am a self-taught artist/crafter living in Canton, Ohio with my husband, Matthew and our cat, Stanley. I create in my spare time~ but make a point to do something creative at least once a day~ whether it is actually making something or posting on my blog, Sleepy Hollow Craft Company. I have always been interested in the arts and was encouraged by my mom to be "crafty" from a young age. I have a studio in my home and spend lots and lots of time in there listening to my favorite music and making the biggest-most fun- messes ever! I also have a passion for everything old, as most vintage-inspired crafters do. My husband and I frequent garage sales, flea markets, antique malls and trash bins...any place good "junk" can be found. I use a lot of these "found" elements in my artwork~ I love making something old new again. I also have a passion for everything vintage holiday, my favorites being Halloween and Christmas. On my blog I discuss crafting, decorating in flea market style, and vintage seasonal collectibles.
