Indie Junction Featured Artisans for the Week of April 18th!!

Another stellar lineup this week of Indie Junction Featured Artisans!  This week we have Lisa Rae Annis (TheLittleGreenButton), Deborah Wandler (BIZZARIOS), and Larissa (Reef Botanicals)!
Let's start with The Little Green Button where you will find vintage recycled buttons made into beautiful artwork, greeting cards, frames and more!  In the artist's own words: "A love for crafting coupled with a mild obsession of vintage and recycled buttons brings me to Etsy! As a child, I remember grandma pulling out scissors, buttons, glue, scraps and anything she could gather. She'd say, "There, now make something." When I needed more supplies, she'd point to the craft closet and let me at it. There was never a time limit.  Thank you Grandma for letting me get messy and create, for you are the inspiration of my craft!"  Be sure to follow Lisa Rae's blog and become a fan of her Facebook page as well!
Now take a look for yourself at some of the wonderful things at The Little Green Button!!
Next up is Deborah Wandler of BIZZARIOS!  This shop features 3 Dimentional Art with a difference. An idea that has come to life. A mood for every picture and a picture for every mood.  In the artist's own words: "I moved to British Columbia from Alberta in 2007.  I was just married and combining 2 households of stuff.I had a thought of an idea I had 10 years ago, why put all this cool stuff away, why not display it on pictures. Some pieces weird, some bizzar...hence the name BIZZARIOS."

Our third Indie Junction Featured Artisan is Larissa from Reef Botanticals!  Larissa and her husband Eric are the creators of the business and make wonderful natural soaps and candles!  In the artist's own words: "We knew we were right for each other early on, but didn't even realize until after we married in March of 2009 that we both loved to make things from scratch. First as children separately, and now as adults together, between us we have taken up latch hook, knitting, acting, building, fine arts, baking, cooking, face painting, henna artistry, beer brewing, photography, candle making, and now soap making. If it involves creating something, it's likely we've tried it! It was only natural for us to combine our talents for art, craft, and recipe development and step into the arts of candle and soap making."
