thanks so very much for all of your fantastic nominations in the 2010 Handmade Olympics. what a wonderful celebration of handmade!
without further ado, i'm thrilled to present our judges' shortlist for event #5!
thanks so much to our wonderful judge for this event, the inspiring + always encouraging artist Mitsy of Artmind: the beautiful shop + amazing hands-on blog.
what our judge had to say about the nominations: "Here is my shortlist for the Handmade Olympics 2010. What a joy it was to find out more about all the nominations. I tried to get a diversity of nominees together. It's a gathering of people who do things just because, who share their live and love for handmade through their blog, who are an inspiration to others, who volunteer to make this world a better place through their craft, who raise money for people and creatures in need, who are caring & sharing,... There are so many people out there who forward kindness of all sorts. I'm happy to present the following ten people/organisations (in random order) ."
Etsy Trashion team
People that turn trash into treasures is what this team does. The Trashion Team is a group of artists that create art, jewelry, fashion and objects for the home from materials that were leftover, discarded, or found, and sell them on Etsy.
I think it's fantastic that objects get a second life and get recycled or re-used and the amount of creativity involved is amazing.
