Indie Junction Featured Artisans for the Week of February 7th!!

This week we have three more wonderful Indie Junction Artisans:  Maureen Cracknell Handmade, Shendoe Ceramics, and Indie Pin!
Let's start with Mauren Cracknell Handmade.  Here you will find handmade knitted and felted ECO - friendly dolls and dollhouses.  Maureen loves making custom creations, so feel free to convo her through her Etsy Shop with any special requests.  In the artist's own words: "Maureen Cracknell Handmade is a home business I have recently started. With a desire to create and constant inspiration from my three children - I began making clothing and toys and knew that if I was going to put anything out there, I wanted it to be green.  I started with "felts like home" a line of dollhouses and have recently started making my "heart felt" dolls. Everything is created from natural and recycled materials, is 100% handmade, one of a kind, and created to be as individual as each child.  I use these materials to protect wildlife and trees, and to promote a greener world for our children. I care about an eco-friendly lifestyle and that's why I am trying to make a difference one toy at a time."

Our next Indie Junction featured artisan is Shendoe Ceramics!  In the artist's own words: "I make ceramic figures and objects with a sense of humor and wit and often with a sense of beauty. I love to work in clay and particularly in porcelain. My hand is involved in making molds, clays, glazes and organic shapes. I love to use vintage decals to add detail and interest...I hope you find beauty and humor in what you see."
