Tuesday Meet and Greet

Another Tuesday, another opportunity to introduce my readers to some talented people!

Today's recipients of my gratitude for following my blog all have links to shops, blogs, fan pages, etc. for others to see, click on, explore, and hopefully bookmark, buy, and/or follow!

Crystal Kneller, aka KIZZ Designs, from British Columbia, Canada, has an addiction. Actually, two. The first one is beading, which refers to anything she makes with beads, gems, and metals. The second one is online selling and networking! She is a busy lady with 3 boys between the ages of 10 and 14, and farm animals that need tending, but being a breast cancer survivor proves that she is a plucky lady, too, who thrives in the face of challenge. Crystal's blog, KIZZ...Day to Day, her ArtFire shop, KIZZDESIGNS, her shop at Made It Myself of the same name, her Fan Page on Facebook, her Twitter address, her website, and her Etsy shop are all links you should check out!

Bonnie and Rachel, of TLCinspirations, reside in Washington State, where they enjoy making many different types of arts and crafts, which they sell in their Etsy shop, their Artfire shop, and talk about them on their blog, Inspire Wire, their Facebook Fan Page and tweet about them on Twitter. From beading, to crochet, to photography, to sewing, to poetry and design...this mother-daughter team seem to have no end to their creativity and talents and perhaps are only limited by the number of hours in a day. Please check out their ecclectic and creative wares!

Risa Tritabaugh, owner/artist of Created by Risa, is based in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she pursues her passion for painting and all things creative when she isn't working as a social worker. Her colorful acrylics and her process can be seen on her blog, Created by Risa, and paintings, multi media work, as well as handmade jewelry can be found in her Etsy shop. Follow Risa on Twitter and on Facebook on her fan page, too!

Thank you to all of my blog readers and followers. If you would like to be featured in a future Tuesday Meet and Greet, follow Made by SwirlyGirl's Side Lines and I will eventually share your shops and links with my readers, too!

Visit Made by SwirlyGirl on RedBubble and on Etsy!
