Small Pieces of Wonder

the stones from Winnipeg, originally uploaded by knitalatte11.
Every once in a while I come across an artist's work that brings me to tears. I'm not sure if it's because of the time and love that the artist puts into it, or if it's just the creativity itself that moves me, but Margaret is one of those artists! Once I learned that this beautiful artist is in fact a "family physician in a small rual community, who even makes house calls and end of life care" it all made sense :-)
Margaret has an Etsy Store where you can find her many prints available to purchase, and her blog Resurrection fern  is full of creative playfulness. Right now you can even find a long list of where to find tutorials for handmade gifts.

Orbiting with Laura Rogers and Her Encaustic Wax Painting

This beauty if from Laura at her Etsy store Don't Orbit Me Encaustics . Laura lives and creates in Markham, Ontario. Her medium of choice is painting with beeswax. Laura  shares with us her inspirations as well as her artistic process at her Flickr Photostream and Etsy store. I love that it's "Perfectly imperfect in nature". You'll find all kinds of goodies available to purchase at her Etsy store..
