My friend Casey recently posted a link to her blog on Facebook and I curiously clicked on the link. To my surprise and delight, I found that she too collected owls. A kindred spirit? I believe so! She has a lot of really great craft ideas and blog entries are fun to read. I like her sense of humor.
here are some of her owl. Jealous! I really like the tall guy in the back!
Casey and I met back in 2006 when I we were both getting our Master's degree in art education. At the time, she lived in Tuscaloosa, so I rarely saw her outside of school. A couple of years later, I started running into her much more frequently. Our paths began crossing at art teacher events (she now lives in Birmingham and teaches art in the same school system as I do). Then, I would go visit friends in Tuscaloosa and run into her out and about. She has some great art and crafting ideas on her blog and I love how I associate her with everything cute. She would fit right in Japan's cute-obsessed culture. She also tends to reference her 80's childhood, which I find endearing!
If you want to check out her blog, it is http://echolyricdesigns.blogspot.com/.
She has an "etsy" shop full of various handmade cute things that you can buy for your very own, or they would make great gifts. So check out her etsy shop here. Her etsy shop, like anything creative, is ever changing. So check back often for new stuff. Currently, her shop has jewelry made from recycled materials, ultra cute handmade doggy envelopes, cute tiny embroidered plushies and pincushions, t-shirt scarves (I saw these on another craft blog and have meaning to try making them, they are very chic). My favorite thing she has in her etsy shop though, are her handmade crayons in various shapes including: stars, hearts, fish and even mickey mouse!
The best part about all of the stuff in her etsy shop? Great prices and currently she is doing free shipping on a lot of her items for her "Christmas in July" sale. She will also have a table set up at Bottletree this Saturday, July 16th from 11 am - 4 pm for their craft/art/vintage sale. So, go by and give her a visit and a kiss on the cheek. Tell her Lindsay sent you! :)
Super cute summer wreath Casey made to adorn her front door! Fun and elegant all wrapped up in one wreathy package. :)
