Our next featured Indie Junction Artisan is Wendi G of Miz Darlin's Hat's, Etc.!  In the artisan's own words: "I create crocheted hats and neckwarmers, all one of a kind-but if the size listed isn't yours, we can talk! All items created in a smoke-and-pet-free  home...My hats are all non-sheep's wool creations because I am allergic to sheep's wool-many others are too. I've made a variety of sizes to choose from, tiny tots to big adults and everything in between."
Wendi's sister shop is Tidy Baubles and it's where you'll find all her jewelry creations! All her jewelry pieces are OOAK, so when she sells them, they will not be re-listed--you will have the only unique piece! You can follow Wendi on herblog!
Here are some beautiful things from Wendi G's Miz Darlin's Shop:

Our third Indie Junction featured artisan is Dish Handbags featuring handmade handbags and more!! In the artist's own words: " I love to make purses that have personality and complement an outfit, not blend in. All my patterns are my own design, and completely handmade from pattern to handles.  I'm the kind of girl that if I cant carry a hair brush and sketch book in my purse then it's too small.:) Please check the measurements at the bottom of each listing and if the size doesn't work for you dont hesitate to see if I can make something special for you! "  You can find Dish Handbags onFacebook and MySpace.
