If you haven't checked out the Thursday Sweet Treat blog yet, you are missing out. The Thursday Sweet Treat is "a place for artists and writers to dream, support one another and share the work they love to create." Natasha of DoodleStar is the talented and charismatic artist who put this blog together. About the blog she says "A theme is posted every Friday and then the people who choose to showcase their work post their new creations on the following Thursday! Come join us!" Anyone can participate, and as someone who has been a part of this endeavor the past few weeks, it really is a lot of fun. I created this Spring Tulip Hand-Painted Adjustable Art Ring for this past week's theme "Where the Wild Things Bloom." So many talented artists showcase their work every Thursday, and it's thrilling to see how each artist interprets the weekly theme.
A new theme will be posted sometime today, so be sure to keep checking out the blog to get inspired! There will be instructions with the new theme on how to enter.
Thursday Sweet Treat has also begun a new weekly segment in addition to the inspirational themes called the "Artist Play Date." Each Wednesday the blog will feature an artist and his or her artistic process or a tutorial. There will also be a giveaway featuring something from that artist's shop. This past Wednesday I was given the honor of being featured in the first "Artist Play Date" segment! I shared my resin tutorial, as well as offered a $15 gift certificate to my Etsy shop for the winner of the giveaway. The giveaway is still going on, so be sure to check out the post to enter. If you're interested in participating in future "Artist Play Dates", be sure to check out this thread in the Etsy forums.
Happy Friday everyone! :)
