Yankee Burrow Creations - Featured Artist

Good Morning,

Today I would like to re-introduce you to a wonderful artist and friend from the Handmade Artists site, Debbi of Yankee Burrow Creations. Debbi dabbles in a little bit of everything, from crochet to jewelry,  prints to paper quilling, there is a lot to see at the shop.  One busy lady, she keeps a blog, where she not only shows off her own lovely wares, but tells stories, has videos and belongs to several Blog Rings or Hops in which she participates.  You may find her blog badge on the menu bar to the left.  She maintains shops and sites on the web, has adopted and foster children, enjoys playing with her grandson, and on occasion will give us a peek into her life outside the studio. 

In our hurried hustle and bustle life-styles we forget to take the time to enjoy the finer things that come to us in simple forms; laughter, time spent with loved ones, or just sitting and reflecting.  Yankee Burrow Creations has not forgotten that, and their creations for home, hearth or person are made with love, attention to detail, and range from the cute and useful item, to the modern-must-have accessory.





These bears are one of my very favorite items in the shop.  I love the intent behind them, and they can be so many things for so many people.  They would be great for a Big Sister or Brother awaiting the arrival of a new sibling, one bear for them and a bear to give the new baby.  They also make great comfort items in times of stress or strife, grab a bear and things will be better.

Product Details:
these big sister teddy bears celebrate the love between sisters.  The big sister bear is white and measures 9 1/2" tall, and little sister bear is red and measures only 9" tall.  The eyes and noses of both bears are sewn on, and they sport matching but co-ordinating scarfs with bright yellow trim.  These would be a nice gift for your sister, big or small.  You can read the full story behind these bears here on my blog, http://www.yankeeburrowcreations.com/2013/03/celebrate-your-sisters.html

How pretty is this? Each shell has been attached by hand.  That took some patience,  and what a beautiful piece she has created.  Fun and livley, this would be perfect for that Sundress with strappy sandals or for that weekend get away at the beach.  This would make a super Mother's Day gift, that is coming up, you know.  I bet it makes a fabulous soft jingly sound when worn.  Kinetic jewelry, I love it!

Product Details:
 I created this bracelet by individually attaching each shell piece, by hand, along this double looped silver plated chain.  Very durable, yet still feels light on your wrist, this is a colorful way to dress up for the beach.  This bracelet measures 7" long and uses a silver-plated swivel lobster claw.  The swivel claw makes it easy to put on, and take off.

You know I can not let May roll by without including cows.  I like this print a lot and what could be more appropriate for a Country Den or a Big City Office.

Wedding Season is coming up and why not make yours extra special with these gorgeous hand quilled Memory Frames.  The art of quilling amazes me, it must take serious time, patience and concentration, it is well worth he effort in the end.  This is beautiful.

Here is a lovely piece of home decor.  Original and full of color, that butterfly looks like it might take flight at any minute.
