On the hotseat this week is Kris from Lisian Blue. She called the shop after her favourite flower and it's colour. I've never heard of them...but by Googling I found out that it's a pretty "big" flower for bridal bouquets...They're very pretty, too See?
She lives in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico, another of those places I'd like to visit. According to her bio, she paints on all sorts of things with all types of paint, beads, photographs, works with wood, crochets, and works with glass too...all supervised by her 12 yo kitteh. I know how it is to be supervised by a pet...I'm rather surprised Obelisk hasn't laid a Faberge egg yet, with my propensity to drop beads on the floor.
In her Shop she has Ornaments which are available only until 24 July...They're all so pretty. She also has a spring collection of ornaments and heart shaped ones too. I really like this one because it reminds me of Fish Scales and I love and spoil my fish too.How many people do you know who would buy Xmas treats for their goldfish?
This is my fave in her Stained Glass section:
I'm an Egyptophile since way way back. I even tried to run away to see the King...and I don't mean Elvis.
The one on the right is prolly more of how you've seen him...
Moving right along...Her Miscellaneous Painted Glass section has too many cool shinies. I especially LOVE these bears.
Aren't they just gorgeous?!In Native culture bears are a very powerful totem.
The last section of her shop has hand beaded appliques...better her than me, because the whole deal would go out the window if I was doing them...My Great Grandmother used to tat and I'd watch her and just shake my head...I don't have the manual dexterity and that just looks akin walking and chewing gum...so I'll leave that to the folks who can.
Just lookit how delicate that is...and if those teeny itty bitty beads are even life sized, I'd be so screwed. LOL
Kris can be found on Artfire, here:

This one's got more glass shineys.
