Mother's Day Garden Bracelet NOT Pig Clothes

I love seeing what crafters create with my digital sheets.  I often visit their shops to see their latest creations.  One such shop is from my friend Lori at Potbellypigclothes.  No, she doesn't sell pig clothes!  But she does sell some of the finest handcrafted jewelry you will find on Etsy!  The first piece that caught my eye was her "Three Little Pigs" charm bracelet.  I had intended to purchase it, but alas, it got away before I got back to her. 
 Lori was in the process of creating another bracelet from the Vintage Seed, Vegetable, and Flower digital sheet she had purchased from me.  I loved the idea!  I asked her to let me know when she had it ready and I would buy it. 
When I received the Garden Bracelet, I was truly delighted.  The workmanship was amazing, and the colors were vivid and bright, even more vivid than her pictures showed!  I am so thrilled over this beautiful bracelet and the work of this new artist, that I had to share it with you! 

I wore this bracelet to school, and my students loved it too.  We are in the middle of a unit on plants, so it fit right in. 
Of course since I deal in vintage images, my little brain went into overdrive thinking about all the beautiful bracelets, pendants, rings, etc. that Lori could create with them.  I contacted her again about creating a Peter Rabbit bracelet for me since that is one of my favorite children's books.  I sent her my Peter Rabbit digital sheet to use.  When I received the bracelet, I read the story to my granddaughters, and then we had fun finding the little images on the bracelet and talking about the story.  It was a nice memory maker with my little ones! 

I am always amazed at the talent I find on Etsy, and Lori is no exception.  If you like vintage, cottage, shabby, or even just photos of family, I imagine Lori could create something special and memorable for you.  Please go and visit her shop to see what she is working on.  You will like what you see!  And I suppose, if you are in the market for pig clothes, maybe she could help you there too.  After all, she has five potbelly pigs!
