Artist spotlight and GIVEAWAY!!!!

Something I will touch on a lot is my love of luminaries. A few years back I found myself discouraged that despite never actively paying attention to the Kardashians, I can name every single one and tell you more than I want to know about them. I realized I couldn't name a single artist, scientist, or anyone doing significant work. I made it my mission to find living inspirations. Having an artist's heart I tend to focus on artists.

So my first write up is my friend Heidi. We met in high school and had a conversation about our favorite boy band members. We found out we liked the same ones and it all started there. We share a birthday, similar upbringings, the same curly hair, bra size, thirst for knowledge and love of beauty. We are basically the same person. Another similarity is we both love yarn work. I'm more of a hobby knitter where Heidi is a master crocheter.

Heidi is my first living artist and believe me she is an actual artist! I am always astonished by what beautiful pieces she can make with a hook and some yarn! Aside from being an artist Heidi is a mother and homeschooler of three beautiful children. There are many more pictures of Heidi's work on her FB page but here are just a couple pieces that inspire me.






                 
                                             A loving tribute Heidi made for a local  fallen officer and his canine partner.



                                                                       This gorgeous Wayuu Mochila bag!




                      And one of my favorite characters of all time, Harley Quinn! My favorite pair of Lularoe leggings are                                      the red stripes and polka dots because they remind me of her classic jester costume! 

**GIVEAWAY** Heidi has on her page https://www.facebook.com/HeidisLittleCreations/posts/1730893253886645
Be sure to like her page and comment on her post with your least favorite thing about the holiday season and you can win your choice from a beanie, messy bun hat, scarf, fingerless gloves or a set of dishcloths.

I highly recommend the dishcloths! Heidi makes these amazing dishcloths that are scrubby to take off all the tougher bits but are gentle enough for non stick pans! Think Scrub Daddy but washable, economical and won't fall apart after two sinkfuls of dishes!


So that is my first artist spotlight. Hopefully you enjoyed it because there will be more to come. Feel free to comment and tell me someone who inspires you and deserves more recognition! Maybe I will do a spotlight on them! I'm especially looking for living scientists because I only know of Bill Nye.

Deanne 2 DUPE! Save $100?!

Everyone has been buzzing about Lularoe's newest dresses! The pictures are beautiful! They usually are. Then the prints come out that either resemble grandma's curtains or something you'd see on Saved by the Bell. Then the price was revealed and everyone said "Whoa!" $150 for a dress that you can't even wear without something underneath? Are they mad?

 Lularoe says the price is high due to the embroidery but why are the embroidered Lola's the same price? My theory is while consultants jump ship and have GOOB sales it's lowering the value of their product. What do they do? When they go low we go high. One hundred and fifty dollars high! I think they might be high. In any case you're not here for my conspiracy theories you are here for the DEALS!

So here are II DUPES 😉

Betsey Johnson LABOR DAY SALE!

Have you seen the new fall kitsch line from Betsey Johnson? Literally to die for! The bags are just adorable. Black cat, Candy Corn, Ghosts, Spiders, even  a PSL! They are the cutest things I've ever seen! I literally could not resist and bought the black cat when I had a 20% off coupon. Well right now for Labor Day EVERYTHING is 35% off plus FREE SHIPPING!!!!

Personally I was surprised by how tiny the cat bag is. It barely fits my phone but it is precious. I still want every bag though! I'm going to hold off on this sale. I got my kitty bag and I've seen the kitsch collection go down past 50%. So if there is one you have to have buy it now with this sale. If you aren't picky wait until after the season ends when you can get them cheap!
