Leelyn and Company

Thursday, June 19, 2014




Did you guys know that June 18th has now been officially titled 'National Day of Making'???? I know!!!! Exciting, right?? I can't believe this one slid by me, but just you wait for next year -- we will celebrate!! As you know, I am a proud 'Maker' and love to promote other makers here on my little blog. Especially young makers! It just does my heart so good to know that the internet offers this wonderful spot for artists to use their God-given gifts to make money... sigh... oh, to have had the great www when I was a youngster.   


**********************************************

I discovered the talents of Raleigh's Sidney Lee, on a friends Facebook. This talented watercolor artist just graduated with a Communications degree from NC State {!!} Sidney has been doodling since middle school, covering notebooks, napkins and planners with her lovely lettering. With the encouragement of friends who fell in love with her art, and a friend who asked for a new logo... the idea of Leelyn and Company was born. She launched her website and online store in February and has dreams to expand her calligraphy skills and perhaps venture into the wedding industry.

'Ultimately, I pray each week for the Lord to do with Leelyn whatever he sees fit, and ultimately, for my small business to glorify Him and expand His kingdom. I am willing to take it wherever He leads!

Check out all of the beautiful items in Sidney's shop here. Or you can contact her for a custom print or logo for your business. You can also follow along on her blog, here.

What the what????????????


These are succulents and stones made out of felt, people!! All made by hand, by the uber talented Monika Popowitz. She has always been an avid rock collector, loving the sentimentality and the stories associated with the finds. A few years ago, she left her graphic design job to pursue her first expression of creativity - sewing. She crafts and molds these incredibly realistic beauties and sells them in her Etsy shop, Miasole







So here's the thing....I actually have a really healthy, happy yard full of flowers and shrubs. Not to mention loads of inside ferns, chinese evergreens, schefflera, corn plants, peace lilies, and snake plants, but......I can't keep a succulent alive to save my life!! The plant that is supposed to be foolproof, does not thrive in this fools home. It's making these felt lovelies even more appealing! 

















You might remember when I tried my hand at a felt corsage and boutonniere for last years prom. I loved the way they turned out and now want to give felt succulents a try!!







Visit Monika's etsy store, Miasole, here.

Great.ly excited!

Monday, April 14, 2014

There is a brand new exciting site on the horizon and it consists of some of my favorite bloggers and makers. Great.ly is launching in May under the creative direction of the one and only, Danielle Krysa, also known as The Jealous Curator. This is how she explains the site: 
 'On GREAT.LY it’s the tastemakers that have the shops and do all of the selling, so that the makers only have to worry about doing what they truly love doing… making! And for the tastemakers – they spend their days searching the world for beautiful things to write about, but rarely get paid for those discoveries {selling ads only goes so far}… so we’re aiming to make this a win-win-win situation! Makers make and earn. Tastemakers sell and earn. Buyers get one, clean, curated, non-cluttered market place filled with amazing products from all over the world brought to them by the tastemakers that they already follow.' 




.........................................................................................................................


Pretty cool, right?? And just to get you more excited, here are some of the folks already on board:





If you want to set up your own boutique on Great.ly, they are searching for Makers! Visit The Jealous Curator for all of the details.
