"This is my new favorite tassel. Beautiful pale green ceramic rabbit sits on top of several gorgeous layers of high end decorator trims and riboons. Accented with red this sweet tassel is big on character."

Ana, of ANA'S HOUSE DRESSING on Etsy creates the most delightful decorative tassels, which most certainly would add a bit of color and whimsey to any area in your home!  The green bunny above is one of my favorites!

First, let's learn a bit more about Ana and her creations, by reading her interview below.
What led you to start creating your art/craft?

I have always been artistic and really began sewing when my daughter was born, when she passed away, I couldn't bring myself to draw anymore.Two years ago, I entered a recovery program called Celebrate Recovery, and on this journey I have found that bringing together the sewing with the creativity was a wonderful outlet for me.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?

I love fabrics and trims, I also love to paint and draw, so this is like a combination of both.

What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?

The inspiration I get when I start with either an already painted ceramic or an unpainted ceramic. I used to think the finished product was the most important part, now I believe it is all in the process...kind of like life.

If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?

Avacado, either you love it or hate it, sometimes not real sure what to do with, but leave it to a Hispanic to make some delicious guacamole!

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?

Pencil. I used to draw and express myself this way as a child and I have had a real yearning to pick it up again, and let myself feel the pain and put it on paper.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?

Don't take life too seriously, don't miss the good while looking for the perfect.

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

You find your niche when you pick up that special something that transports you to another dimension and the world fades into the background. That moment when you realize, for this I was created.

THANKS, Ana, for a great interview and for sharing your wonderful creations with everyone.
