Friday's Radio Review - TiLTCreations!

Last nights show was a ton of fun as we all got to know Theresa of TiLTCreations! The show went great, except for me tripping all over my tongue :P I've been sick and my mind decided to just go blank on me a few times :P

You can find Theresa's work on etsy and artfire. And you can learn more about her, and the artists she likes, on her two blogs! TiLTCreations and TiLTTreasuries :) Are you a massive Twitter fan like I am? Then follow Theresa on Twitter!

Here's a few fun things we learned last night.  Theresa is a Mom of two boys, ages 3 and 13, and her oldest even came on the air to talk to us last night! Her entire family is very "artsy," her husband is a write, her oldest is a musician and loves to do computer graphics, and we're sure her 3 year old will follow in the rest of the families footsteps!

Here's a fun fact about her work - if you love Theresa's bags - she creates most of her own patterns! Isn't that incredible? I can't even imagine doing something like that.  We were trying to convince her last night that she should sell her patterns on-line, who knows folks, they could be coming soon!

Here's just a few of my favorite items from TiLTCreations :)

Rose Calico

Donna Striped Rachelle

Bright Blue Zip Pouch

Did you miss last nights show and are totally heartbroken to have missed out on the fun? That's ok - because we're on archives! Just go to and click on the link for Thursday's Spotlight on TiLTCreations!

Looking forward to next week? We've had a bit of a change up in the schedule - but have no fear - it's going to be fantastic! We'll be interviewing the lovely Kim of KE Cookies!  Here's just one of the yummy items from her shop :)

Been Busy

Sorry I've been kind of behind on posts.....We've been working real hard to get our website done and launched by Jan 1st. Also we are now up to 12 shows a week. I will have the updated schedule out this weekend.

Got a great Sneak Attack planned for tonight.......tune in at 9pm eastern time.

Thursdays Interview - The Chain Maille Lady!

Yesterday was the first episode of Thursday Spotlight on Artisan, my new radio show with my fabulous co-host Lily, of Tulips Treasure Box! Many thanks go out to Rod, the King Plugger Lugger, for giving us this wonderful opportunity! Each Friday I'll be doing a short recap of the show, and featuring some of the lovely items from that week's artist :) To listen to yesterday's show go here. It was a blast!

This week's interview was Lauren, of The Chain Maille Lady, and she did a fabulous job! Lauren creates gorgeous chain maille jewelry. She's been doing so for about 4 years now, and creates an incredible variety of pieces! Looking in her shop you'll find bracelets, necklaces, earrings, dream catchers, celtic stars, and more! Quality is key with Lauren, and she works hard to insure that none of her pieces will ever snag your skin or clothes.

One thing that Lauren is doing that I think is awesome is she's raising money for research to cure Polycystic Kidney Disease. Here's a little blurb she wrote about that: For
the month of November & December 10% of your purchase from my shop
will be donated to the PKD Foundation (Polycystic Kidney Disease) in
honor of my father and uncle who lost their lives to the disease (I
also have the disease). For more information on the foundation please
visit Thank you in advance for your support. Donation to date: $71.80

Want to learn more about Lauren and see more of her work? You can find The Chain Maille Lady on Etsy, 1000 Markets, The Maille Market, and on her Blog!

Lauren would tell you that one the best ways to get your work known on etsy, and to find support, is to join teams. She's a part of the California Crafters Club of Etsy, the Etsy Chainmaillers' Guild, and the Fantasy Artists of Etsy.

Here's a few of my favorite pieces from Lauren's shop!

On a more personal note - I mentioned last night that I had a friend coming over to teach me some chain maille work. Oh my goodness! I have so much more respect for chain maille artists - and I always was really impressed by them! It's a lot of very finicky work. I've started learning the basic 4 in 1 weave, but I've learned that I can't do it when my hands are shaking, and so I wasn't able to work on it for very long last night. But I will keep working on it! Because it's fun, and I'm one of those crazy people who wants to learn everything :P
