Meet the artist behind Little Pink Plum and Indigo Bay Designs

Janet the artist behind Little Pink Plum and Indigo Bay Designs is a contemporary crafter.
Her designs of pocket mirrors and pendants are suitable for little girls and also for adult women that want a unique fashionable style of their own .
On her blog ( janscraftynest.blogspot ) Janet describes herself as a stay at home mom,
part time on-line college student, and a crafter.
I personally can't wait to see what new and inventive things she can make next .
I asked Janet three questions and these are her responses in her own words.

what would you like others to know of you and your art ?

I like working with paper.
There are so many different types of paper, but my favorite kind is Japanese chiyogami.
It is thicker than regular origami paper and feels more like cloth.

Were can others find your art work ?

I have an etsy shop called Little Pink Plum for my pocket mirrors,
but I also have a second etsy shop called Indigo Bay Designs.
I sell Japanese paper supplies and also my handcrafted pendants there.
I use all non toxic materials when I make my pendants.

What advice would you give to another artist ?

My advice to another artist: #1 - Do what you love, then it never feels like work.
#2 - And take great pictures if you are selling on the internet because that is what the buyer sees and that is your opportunity to make a great first impression.

I just wanted to say that I adore your worrywort dolls. I especially love the eyes of the dolls and the cute little dresses. Keep up the good work.
