Fiber Artist Too

Time to share the inspiration of another fellow artist and blogger from the Handmade Artist's Forum.

This week's featured blogger/artist from the Handmade Artist's Forum Blog Ring is:

Fiber Artist Too
http://www.fiberartisttoo.blogspot.com/

On her blog Libby White shares her artwork, experiences with fiber and felting as well as stories about her dogs, friends and family.

During the day Libby works as a microbiologist at the Center for Disease Control and has been in this line of work for 25 years. Feeling very burned out from her day job she is looking forward to retirement which is only 5 years away. Meanwhile, Libby enjoys spending time dabbling in a variety of art mediums and has found felting and dyeing roving to be the most fun.

Take a look at this pretty and colorful bag she made:


Multicolor and Fiber Crocheted Bag




Meanwhile over at her Etsy shop, Raven 333, Libby has a variety of her creations for sale and, believe me, it is filled with wonderful treasures! Take a look at these photos and see for yourself...are they wonderful or what?!?!

Beaded Bracelet FreeForm Peyote




Libby has been practicing her art for 20 years and gets inspiration from dreams. As well as being a serious fiber artist she incorporates elements of collage, rubber-stamping and found object art. Plus she also designs art dolls which are absolutely incredible!

So if you like to see more of her work please visit her Etsy shop. And don't forget to click on over to her blog for even more inspiration and fun!

I'll be sharing more good stuff soon...until then,
