Happy Christmas from all the Amys!

As previously posted the Amys were immortalised this week in one of the ubiquitous Artists of Etsy Exposed Treasuries. Incredibly the Treasury was viewed by more than 700 people! 8 sales were made by 4 different Amys during the time – who knows if this was down to the Treasury but you can be sure that shop views went through the roof and a few more Hearts on top of that(all totted up thanks to craftcult!). It was a great bit of promotion for the Amys in the Arts Street Team and a good opportunity to put a face to a name – that name being Amy of course!

SewArtsy Amys Feature

Amy Sews

Fellow Amy and fellow sewer, Amy of Amy Sews can sew anything! She amazes me with her skills. In her shop you'll find colorful, quilted blankets, cuddly bears, super cute bags and darling hair poppers, but she also makes clothing for women and girls, and bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses and costumes. I am in awe! You can see more of her sewing talents at her myspace page.

Amy is a stay at home mom of 2, and right now is doing it all on her own as her husband is deployed and serving our country (thank you!!!).

I love this Mama Bear in her shop. I'm getting the hang of girly things now that I have a daughter, and I think this adorably sweet pink and green bear would make any little girl smile.

While you are checking out Amy's shop, grab up some halloween hair poppers for next year - they are on sale now!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Many blessings in 2009! Amy

SewArtsy's Featured Amy

PetiteAmi: Everyday Whimsy!

This week I'm featuring incredible artist Amy Mottola from Petite Ami. She's a multi-talented lady, and you'll see that in her shop. Amy is student teaching right now, and in all that spare time we know teachers have, she is still able to create these beautiful pieces. Her latest series of work has centered around the Saints, but the renderings are populated by animals rather than humans - like this one - quite interesting and inspiring. Amy lives in NY, and is also a member of the NY Hudson Valley Street Team. In her shop you'll find anything from etchings and deeply colored paintings to knit and crocheted items.

My favorite item in her shop is this Sleeping Wolf charcoal drawing! Right now I could use a little more sleep in my life, and this guy looks so peaceful and rested. I love that his fur looks so soft in 2D - such beauty!

Amy's artwork would bring holiday joy to any art lover this season - check out her shop!

Happy Friday! Amy

SewArtsy's Featured Amy

amybean: comfy AND cozy

You've got to check out Amy's shop to believe it - incredible plush items for the adventurous in spirit! Wonderfully detailed plush robots inhabit Amy's shop. Showing the softer side of the robot nation, her new series finds them in their pajamas of all things! I am partcularly drawn to the beefy bods of the Lucha Robots, myself. This talented artist displays her love of lucha, her fasination with cryptozoology, and her skill at all things plush. I love the way she turns her "seemingly" everyday iems into artistic presentations in the way she presents her scarves and hats in her shop. It's like a gift right there on the screen!

I always love to hear the latest stories about mysterious cryptid sightings, so my favorite items in her store are the BigfootZ(tm) Doll and the Bigfoot Sighting Onsie!

Find Amy and her work at: amybean.etsy.com, cozy rampage, cozy robot, and the needle. Check her out!

Happy Friday

SewArtsy Feature - Amy Singley

Another feature of my Amy teammates this week!

Adorn By Amy Singley: custom aritsan jewelry

Oh, what fun and gorgeous jewelry! And what an amazing lady! Adorn By Amy Singley's shop is saturated with incredible color and unique detail. It's just like a candy shop where you want to grab up every last morsel! Each beautiful bead full of color. Each design exquisitely unique.

Amy lives in Tennessee, and is a breast cancer survivor. It was during her period of surgery and chemo 5 years ago that she learned to love beading. Her first design was called "Survivor" as a reminder of strength, courage and hope! My favorite item of Amy's is the pair of Kyoto earrings. I love the curve of the hook and the beauty of the bead. They are darling, and understatedly glamorous! In her shop you'll find necklaces, earrings and bracelets. She also has a selection of sale items you won't want to miss.

Happy Thursday! Amy
