Pam Anderson, crafty girl

Believe or not she has nothing to envy to the baywatch girl, she is blonde and creative and she was blessed with family and off course the beach. So ,where is the difference? I love what Pamela creates, mostly her bags, they are awesome , cute and big, like the ones you need for a day under the sun in Miami Beach or to go to the fresh market. This one I choose from her site at, but you can find more treasures there.She has also a blog, check it out:

She is the Queen

I love what Michelley does. She does everything! I took some info from her etsy profile and pics you can enjoy also .She was born an inherently dramatic child, in the great state of NJ, in the late '60s, to equally dramatic parents. Tot by fairy tales, the notion that her Cuban American father grew up somewhere akin to Gilligan's island, and Bugs Bunny in drag.
She knows how to tattoo, paint, craft and do graphic design.
She owns a small gallery and tattoo studio near Florida's West Central Gulf Coast
If you'd like to see more of her work or for a complete bio, check out her website;

Genny has talent!

I met Genny at one of the many etsy teams and I loved everything she makes. Her jewelry is amazing, and that hand crafting talent that she has, one that I don't have, makes me realize how different we are and how we can complement each other , right? Good job, Genny! I added a picture of this piece of art, that she posted, what a coincidence, on april 12th, my birthday.Gorgeous!
