Awesome. Lisa took a vague request and made the most amazing slippers. Initially I was sceptical but these are the most amazing slippers I have ever worn. They are soooo comfortable warm and cosy and different from the normal style of slippers. We tried to attach a picture but it became very complicated. though apparentrly Lisa has pictures on her facebook page and we hope you will take a peek. After the Christmas mayhem I am hoping Lisa may consider making me a pair of these slippers in white.

Fantastic slippers, colorful, light and sooo comfortable. Lisa does amazing work and I am so happy that Aunty came across her shop. I wore them to a Farmer's Market and received heaps of compliments so am now hoping to maybe get another pair after the Christmas rush is over. We absolutely recommend this store and guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Happily Found My Mojo At 50
Who knew that losing my enthusiasm for my lifelong chosen profession as an Accountant would lead me to finding my Creative Self!? Back then I would have told you that I did not have a creative bone in my body. I had taught myself to crochet and made exactly 1 thing when I was 14
(tellingly, based on some of the things in my shop, it was a beautiful vest for my sister).
I was a successful businesswoman when I realized during a summer vacation that I desperately needed to shift gears. I always give my work 110% but I found myself learning yet another new software application on vacation and taking morning meetings in the camp clubhouse in the Adirondacks at 8am because that was the only place to get Wifi. One gloriously bright and beautiful country morning I realized I could not do this for another minute. I went for a walk with my husband and shared the need that had building in me for 2 years! "I'd like to quit my job and try opening a little on-line shop!" I said to him; "then do it" he replied without hesitation. What a leap of faith!
I had not made a thing since showing so much promise in the only two art classes I'd taken in high school! One piece even made it to our HS Display Case! I had taught myself to crochet at 14, made one piece, for my little sister, and never picked up the hook again.
But, in all that time, 14 to 50, I had NOT forgotten how to crochet! In the two years quitting my job and starting over had been on my mind, I had begun to pick up crochet and art supplies. I had not done that ever before in my adult life. But, the creativity that had been long suppressed, bloomed! The creative floodgates opened!
When my husband and I talked that sunny, beautiful morning in the Adirondacks on the lake, I had the germ of an idea of what I would do. I quit my job as a Business Consultant in October 2010, three months after he and I spoke. Since then my creative germ of an idea has flourished. I began to list my items for sale on Etsy in October, 2011. Now I call myself an Artist and Designer and that is what I am!
I opened my Etsy Shop in late 2010, but, before listing any items, first spent over a year designing and honing the original patterns for the handcrafted goods you'll find for sale here as of Oct. 2011. They are made with a tremendous amount of love and reflect MY love for abstract and colorful art and unique handcrafted apparel.
Unless otherwise stated, the pictured items are my original design inspirations that I handcraft especially for you.
Of course I hope you purchase, but, more importantly, I hope you are inspired and enjoy!
With Love And Color,
Colorful, Artistic and Funky Goods. I create my own patterns to bring you original, handcrafted, designs with a funky flair! Stand out from the crowd with purchases from my Etsy Shop at www.ArtisticFunk.Etsy.com
It's just me and my alter ego, 'Lee-Lee' ;) who works quality control and goes out to do the rough and tumble tests of all my patterns for wear, tear and time! ;)
Another key difference is how I combine materials, colors and design to create a wearable piece of art. I have specific, unique, proprietary design patterns that I handcraft especially for you upon order. The pictured items are my original design examples; your creation will be handcrafted especially for you upon purchase. Any one item is based on the same pattern, however each is actually slightly different due to the nature of being handcrafted upon request especially for you.
Thank You For Your Patronage And Happy Shopping!!!
