Another week....another ETSY artist

Well, this weekend was spent glued to my bench, working my tired fingers and cramped hands to produce three new cuffs. I think it went least I reached my goals.
This week I made a couple of new friends on Etsy. It's such a great community for exchanging ideas and meeting other artists. Let me intoduce you to.......
Wendy Baylis is the artist behind this great site. Like many artists, she holds down a full time job and still finds time to create. Art is her outlet and her sanctuary. Her creations reflect her profound respect and love for the cultures and faiths of the world, especially Asia. After looking at her designs, I'd say it also reflects her passion. Wendy dabbles in a little of everything, writing, painting, drawing, you name it. But I think she's found her niche in these beautiful pieces.
Wendy has Fibromyalgia, but says she doesn't let it get in the way of living her life to the fullest.
In fact, she has vowed to climb, at least part way, up Mt. Everest! I can't wait to see what she creates from THAT experience!
Her goals, at Etsy, are to have fun and open people's hearts and minds to all cultures and faiths through her art. Wendy would like to pass along some advice to other Etsians that was given to her when she first started her store. "Take good pictures. Natural sunlight works best. Get rid of all the props - don't be afraid to focus on you craft." Good advice.
