WELCOME, Laura and her Etsy shop JEWELRY KALEIDOSCOPE where she sells vintage items, along with beautiful hand embroidered items, such as the lovely dish towel above.

I think it is always interesting to know a bit more about the person behind each Etsy shop, so take a moment to read Laura's interview below.  Then..........hop on over to her shop by clicking on the links below.  Laura has a lot of delightful items to choose from, both in her hand embroidery and vintage items.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?

I grew up in a college town that had a program like big sister, I have 5 brothers so I was in this program and that is who taught me to do hand embroidery, I think I was around 10 years old.

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

I love all the colors of the floss to choose from.

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

I love to see the piece come alive when the black lines get turned to color. And I love flowers so, this is another way to make them bloom.

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

Strawberry, they start out as a flower, then a small hard berry, and grow into a pretty red berry.

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

Watercolors, I love all the colors,

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

I like to think I have brightened someone's day with one of my embroidered item, maybe put a smile on their face.

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

Have fun doing your crafts and don't be afraid to try some new ones.

THANKS, Laura for taking the time to share your thoughts and creations with all of us.
