Arts and Crafts Movement

© Linda Plaisted


So, perhaps ironically (or not) I am not a very crafty person. Artsy, sure, craftsy, not so much. The thing is- I can pretty much do anything with my hands, always could, so maybe that was why I never picked up any crafty sort of hobby...too many things from which to choose. I've dabbled in everything from refinishing and hand-painting

furniture to hand-thrown pottery to making jewelry with lovely results to show for it, but now art does not leave much room in my life for craft.


For some reason however, I just felt the need to give something made by my hands to the people I love this Christmas, so I made these little ornaments from prints of my work under glass. If people like them I may consider selling these on my web site for next Christmas or just year round. I may have to get some elves to help in large-scale

production, but I have to say I really enjoyed the time I spent in quiet, crafty contemplation as I made these.


Anyway- carry on.


(We are all feeling much better now and able to get a few things done

before we head out to visit family.)
