Treasury Thanks: Sweet Imaginings of the Heart by KneeDeepOriginals

The rain never came yesterday despite the prospect and dramatic display of clouds... the cooler temperatures sure motivated me to get a different type of project done... an autumn spring cleaning of my storage cupboard space. I now have room in there to move-in my craft show display bins as I will not be doing any fairs this upcoming season. Oh... it just felt so good to get everything off the floor and organized unto shelves... what a wholesome affordable thrill ! Good feelings rock :)

And then... there are those precious heart moments when someone tells you how much they appreciate you... ohhhh that feels even better. LOL

My friend Rebecca, aka KneeDeepOriginals, created a gorgeous Treasury called Sweet Imaginings of the Heart in which she choose to feature 16 artists that have inspired her. I was chosen as one of the sixteen... how incredible is that ?


As you can see, it is truly a magnificent collection- if you'd like, please visit & leave a comment on the actual Etsy Treasury by clicking HERE.
My favorite piece in this treasury is the Vireo Bird- a beautifully sweet petite painting by renneanne. You can see it at the bottom left of the treasury :)

Rebecca chose to feature one of my Silk Tapestry Boxes...

"Abalone Turtle... a unique handmade decorative Silk Tapestry Box by Brizel Handcrafts, made of recycled silk sari & banana silk yarn, perfect for storing a small oceanic memory keepsake !

It is a divine gentle fiber arts container, with a lid of its own, featuring variegated pastel aqua blue banana silk yarn paired with a deep dark midnight blue recycled silk sari yarn. This gorgeous box has been embellished with a turtle shaped button made from carved iridescent abalone shell."

I love Rebecca's work...
and as a matter of fact, KneeDeepOriginals has inspired my own creativity....

"Bright, colorful, warm, and full of movement, song, and life, this original oil on canvas will bring the joy of the morning straight into your home or office. Here you'll find a meadowlark and a mockingbird bringing on the day with a powerful burst of sunrise in blues, oranges, yellows, purples, and a few other colors to boot. Painted on professional canvas with 1.5 inch sides painted in the same colors, this unique piece of art measures 24 x 30 and will come wired in the back and ready for hanging wherever you need color and cheer !"

"There are two things I love about art - discovering the soul of my subject as I bring it to a new and different life on canvas, and the element of surprise - you never know what will emerge and what you'll discover... All of my work is influenced by the natural world around my home (mountains, woods, birds and wildlife, gardens of all kinds), whether in color, texture, or materials. Each of my paintings is original and one of a kind." Rebecca Dresser

What an awesome original painting Grace of Light is...
... this Silk Tapestry Box was inspired by its energy ...

"Sunset Raven, an original handmade decorative Silk Tapestry Box by Brizel Handcrafts, made with vegan & eco-friendly yarns, perfect for storing a unique keepsake !

Sunset Raven is a gorgeous soft fiber arts container, with a lid of its own, featuring yellow banana silk yarn with hand painted rayon yarn paired with dyed cotton & hemp yarn. This unique one of a kind Silk Tapestry box has been embellished with a ceramic raven & a manzanita wood branch."

From all my heart, Rebecca, thank you !
