I don’t like thinking about Christmas too far in advance.

But, a couple of years back, I got caught having to make most of my Christmas shopping very last minute, and I swore to myself “never again!”.

This year, I thought I would do something special. Since I’ve come to know many very talented artists through blogging, I decided I’d try to buy as many gifts as I can from their online shops!

That way, as I explained it to Chéri, we’d have lovely, handmade, unique gifts, coming from all around the world. On the plus side, we wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of fighting other Christmas shoppers at the mall, and we’d encourage wonderfull people to keep creating beautifull art!

So here are some of these incredible bloggers, and the link to their online boutique!

2017 InkTober 31 Days 31 Drawings!

October Challenge

 

31 Days 31 Drawings

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

Anyone can do InkTober just pick up a pen and start drawing!

Hello everyone InkTober 2017 is behind the corner I can’t believe how fast time goes! Last year I loved to participate to this amazing challenge which gave me the opportunity to refine my sketchy skills and creativity!  During the event, following the “Official Prompt List” I have created a fantasy character her name is ©Ylia and I have illustrated her adventures inspired by the prompt words. If you follow me before last year, then you remember Ylia, here there is one of my 2016 InkTober entry so that you can see her, also if you like you can see all the other entries on my InkTober 2016  Gallery:

I loved to create Ylia, she is a futuristic kind of superhero- warrior with a nod to the past, she is also a Messenger of “Love and Peace” most of my drawings were accompanied by quotes or Haiku that I wrote. Maybe one day I will publish an illustrated book of @Ylia Adventures! We will see what the future brings! For now I just got the InkTober  2017 “Official Prompt list”  I don’t know yet what I would be creating, I need to brainstorm! This challenge is open to anyone that love sketching with ink pens but for the #worldwatercolorgroup we are free to add a dash of watercolor, I hope that someone of you will join me this year, you don’t have to be drawing every day if you can’t, you can do a drawing every other day, or every few days, or one entry a week! Doesn’t has to be a complicate drawing, it will help you to develop a habit and skills.

Here is the Story of this event: Illustrator Jake Parker is the creator of this great challenge and initiative started in October 2009. Jake  created InkTober as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Here are the 2017 Official Rules:

Jake Parker Official Rules

I am very excited this year to join Jake once again and participate to this great challenge with artists all over the world! Sharing on the Blog and on Instagram @carolinarussoart I really would love to create all the 31 ink drawings but I think I wont have much time this year, because I would be participating also to another challenge event (I will tell you about this later on!) So I will pick all the prompts that inspire me to produce great drawings.

Visit Jake Parker website for more details, videos, inspiration and lots to learn. I exported here the Official prompt list for the month.

Up to the Moon….

In the last couple of weeks some of my jewelry items have been featured on two beautiful Treasury Lists on Etsy. I was very happy and honored that my jewelry was chosen and selected by some of Etsy members and Featured in these interesting Treasury lists.
The Etsy world is big, there are thousands of sellers and millions of items of every kind, and so the jewelry category is fulfilled of great Artists and Designers, we are all competitors trying to come out of this ocean to see the light of our own dream.
I personally had great honorable feelings when my jewelry got chosen, I don’t give it for granted
someone’s soul got touched by my designs at the point to choose them between millions of others bracelets and necklaces. I am very thankful!
I am not new to be featured is not my first time. I have been in the past with my fashion designs and jewelry. It is always a great feeling!

Up to the moon list Then yesterday I wanted to support and highlight some of my favourite Artists that I came across Etsy. I have been the Curator of my own Treasury list named “Up to the Moon…” I hope you enjoy to see this beautiful Collection of great items as I did while I was selecting all the treasures.
I loved and I am thankful, for all the kind comments left from the artists at the bottom of my list.

Now some quick infos and links in case you have an Etsy account and you want to create a Treasury.
