Sadly etsy limits the number of beautiful shops we can have in our shops Circle. But we want you to still include us in Your Circles. After all, we want to see everyone's creative veins! Since Belladaze has reached its Circle limit, we will go back to participate by adding your wonderful shops to our Favorites.

Mother: Crazy nature loving photographer and craftsperson who has been making handmade greeting cards since the 80's. Current materials are exciting to use and I find inspiration everywhere I look. When not in the studio I am in the garden, feeding chickens, or desperately seeking a piece of paper to jot down ideas for long writing bouts at the computer. Cursed only by letting shiny things lead me astray, blessed by everything I see with my heart . . . This shop is wonderful to co-own. I treasure the added connections it gives me with my daughter.

See my blog for a post that shares a special idea for networking with other etsy artisans. We hope you too will embrace this tradition and build a network of fun and trade! Julie at Koyaanisqatsi started it. She sent me a beautiful item she sells because I was her 100th visitor to 'favorite' her shop. I then vowed to do the same when I got my 100th heart. Now seller dyannan2001 is getting a gift from me and she also agreed to pay it forward. I liked the idea so well that I even paid it backward and sent Julie at Koyaanisqatsi something her direction! If you grasp this tradition and decide to join in, please take a moment and let me know. http://www.belladaze.wordpress.com
I (Kris) am no Galen Rowell, but I did take his classes and am honored to share his love of nature and light. Galen and his wife Barbara died in an airplane crash . . . gone but certainly never forgotten, they shall always inspire me.

Daughter: I live in a different state but co-owning an etsy shop with my Mom helps make it seem like it isn't really far away. When I was a little girl Mom would set a small wooden art desk on the porch. There I spent hours drawing and watching her in the garden. She never had one of those tidy row plots. She proudly said she gardened in the round and that it was another way to express creativity when you aren't at the art table. I have firmly been bitten by her gardening and art bugs, and now her photography. Oh, and we both love our beasty's. You will note all of this is our work. My own style is different from Mom's but that just makes it all the more fun for each of us.
