Artist Spotlight Part 5- Meet Briskmama

This week, hailing from Croatia, is a multi-talented artist named Briskmama. Sewing is almost a lost art, as well as embroidery, but she defines them both well, as you can see in her grocery bags, double sewn on the seams. Get rid of those pesky plastic bags that seem to pile up everywhere.!
They are made of what looks like white sackcloth, and one is lined with vintage style fabric, and the other is beautifully embroidered in the old redwork style, gorgeous...just see for yourself...
Briskmama also makes hand appliqued ornaments...

and reusable gift bags...

All of these handmade pretties can be purchased in her Etsy Shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/briskmamma.

:et's not forget her prints, which are hand drawn and colored by her, then made into prints, wow...here are a couple or three of my favorites...since I am a chocoholic, lol

And then there is this one. For some strange reason, it makes me think of that nutty, disco freak who sang,"I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt" song, and it makes me laugh out loud.
Way too cute though...LOL!
Now go check out Briskmamas blog for some yummie looking recipes. Anything I have ever eaten that was Croatian baked was waaayyyy too good for words.
Happy reading and baking!
