shine on "Harvest Moon" - SPOTLIGHT #6

Some real cuties are still waiting for homes and thanks to all for the wonderful emails...so glad you are enjoying these SPOTLIGHTS...
...thanks for stopping by!
...oh Val...you slay me! I adore all you create...

It's another "Artists' Spotlight"...this is our chance to celebrate the talents of our Earth Angels artists...each week they are working to present original art made for this venue...they hope to share what they do, inspire and bring good cheer with their great art.

I absolutely adore the one of a kind creations of my friend, talented soft-sculpture artist, Valerie Weberpal. It's a true pleasure to shine our Artists' Spotlight on her inimitable style this week as we feature a fab selection of her latest creations...Each is made from found and recycled materials, each is colorful, stylish fun and festive -- as is the artist!


Val has become a regular at our events and she brings a wry outlook balanced by her genuine warmth...I cannot wait to see her and whatever else she'll have up her sleeve in September when she'll be in Columbus at the Country Living Fair in our Earth Angels Artisan Showcase Tent...until then ...

Enjoy browsing the offerings below ...if one of them speaks to you...just email me to order at Jen@EarthAngelsToys.com OR call me from 8-8 NY time at (845) 986-8720...More one of a kind creations by Valerie can be seen on her page on the site...

look out! Web Show warning...OR "The elephants are coming on Thursday"


Hip Hip HOORAY for the day that Val first emailed me...she sent a few pics of her creations and I was utterly captivated. Now, some four years later we are not only business partners, but friends.

That said, I am extra proud to share the lovely and talented Ms. Weberpal's creations via our Thursday night weekly webshow and sale we call our "Artists' Spotlight"...

So tune in this THURSDAY, 6/30 at 8PM...here, LIVE on this BLOG to see her latest one of a kind soft sculpture wonders.We'll be showcasing some amazing critters...especially those hard to nab ELEPHANTS...and those tough to resist hares and bunnies and maybe, just maybe some black cats too...


Thanks Valerie for the chance to share your fab artistry in this festive venue! You know I love you!
