12 Days of Christmas Day 4

On the fourth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Four calling birds?  I love the sound of birds in the morning!  In honor of this lovely sound a few talented artists have created works of art using calling birds as their inspiration!

Four calling birds?  Not exactly sure this is what it means in the song, but the idea is so much fun I can’t resist showing it off!  From the absolutely stunning shop of Nomad Print Studio comes this, and many many more, linocut card!  Perfect not only for Christmas season, but because it is blank could easily be used for any family or friend with a sense of humor!

No 12 Days would be complete without an ornament and those that can cut wood into intricate shapes always amaze me!  This stunning ornament by Mountainbrook is just one such example of incredible talent!  Hand cut with unique designs, this shop is truly a treasure trove of handmade creations for any time of year.

A life long crafter, I found my passion in painting on glass, especially toasting glasses for brides, as well as chainmaille jewelry in between chasing my two boys to various sports events and clubs. This passion for handmade led my husband and I to start the www.HandmadeArtists.com and our passion for getting other handmade artists seen no matter where they sell led to acquiring It's Better Handmade! My hope is that by working with other creative people more buyers will come to understand the true value of handmade.
