  2. From Tiki with Love.. has such a beautiful “Swallow without a tree” Illustration.

    Tanya of Gumball Grenade’s “The company she keeps” is just adorable.

    and the sew Bettie- “Mod Butterfly” and “Paint brush” fabrics make me want to sew.. unfortunately my skills aren’t so great yet.

  3. Everyone does such AMAZING Work!!
    Cara of Sew Bettie has lovely fabric. I especially loved the Bulldog Fabric! 🙂

    Jenny of Be Happy Now has a COOL paper mache cat titled Cats Love Fish…so cool!

    Cordid Dantini does super sweet art! Love her style!

    Sam Bradd’s prints and artist books are Fantastic!! Love the Paper Cupcake Book…very Clever!!

  4. Wow, these are all so amazing it’s hard to pick! But to list a few, I love Kate Endle’s “good day for a walk,” Candace Jean’s “two turtle doves,” and Amy Blackwell’s “pulling strings.” THanks for this opportunity!

  5. I love love love Kate Endle’s owl and whale print. I am going to have to buy some of her stuff. Another one I like a lot is Dollygagging Shop. I love the owl things she has in there.

  6. I love the Sew Bettie wristlet pattern & tutorial:

    I’ll admit it, I am afraid of zippers.

  7. Wow, yet another amazing PikaPackage.
    I kinda had to do a ‘top 5’ as I’m too indecisive a person to just go for one. So…

    ZukZuk’s bear hug print has such beautiful colours;
    Susan Estelle Kwas’ wolf girl gocco cards just slay me;
    The WonderThunder mini octopus plushes are the sort of thing I’d pretend I was buying for my niece but secretly keep for myself they’re that cute;
    Multiple Personality’s ‘just be quiet’ print is one I’ve had in my etsy favourites list for too long to have not snapped its beauty up by now;
    Sarah Gardner’s ‘Your Fan’ print is all the encouragement and comfort anybody could wish for.

  12. Your zine is so cute 🙂 I’ve recently gotten into zines and discovered that there is a zine library in my city. They’ve been collecting zines for over 10 years from all over the world. Will have to show the girl who is organising it yours, she’d love it 🙂

  13. I don’t even understand Violeta Gau’s site, as I don’t speak Italian (I think it’s Italian?) but I love her collage pieces – what a wonderful idea! And I love that you can be as interactive and creative as you’d like with them.

    Thanks for putting this together!

  14. All of the works of Licia of Theophany are wonderful but I especially like the black and white prints of winter as well as the staircase. Deadwood is also fascinating.

  18. I love soooo many things here, but my very favourite product will be HeliS’s polar bear brooch!!! It is just so precious! And how often do you see a good polar bear product?

  19. Wow. What an inspiring collection of artists.

    Moth lovers unite. I adore Multiple Personality’s moth screenprint coasters with the little matching bag. How cute, cute, cute!

    Zuk Zuk’s chair print is fantastic. What great colors and so playful.

    Lineongrata’s Whispering Trees print makes me want to curl up in a big overstuffed chair and just stare at that piece. How incredibly lovely.

    Heli’s Panda is on my Christmas List. I MUST have one of those!

    Theophany’s poppies are so pretty. The colors are wonderful!

  20. Very nice stuff. It´s so difficult to chose one of them. My favourite artists: Linea non grata, Cori Dantini, Kate Endle, Your secret admiral, Violeta Gau, Be happy now, Multiple personality. Wonderful works, very nice and funny!

  21. Thank you – your mission is complete. i now have even more websites to drool over and things to covet!
    As i try to rediscover the “crafty bone” in my body (so talented when i was 5, now so…..) these websites both inspire and scare me at the breadth of talent. i especially LOVE LOVE LOVE the Zuk zuk prints, Mrs Elliots books, the bike prints from sew simple, the beautiful things on the lineanongrata site, the kate endle treats.
    so thanks for opening my eyes further to more amazingly talented souls

  23. I absolutely adore all of the prints at From Tiki With Love—it is hard to choose a favourite! I think it would come down to ‘Red Makes Me Happy’ and ‘Nutty Hatch’.

  24. It doesn’t look like people are listing something from each site, so I’m just going to mention a few things I especially like:

    Candace Jean’s “I want to be where you are” card (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15994693).
