15 Days of Halloween!

I will be creating 15 lists of Halloween items, one separate daily list created from Etsy and Artfire items. There will be a poll for each of these lists for readers to chose their favorite item on the list. The 15th list will come on Halloween day. This list will be comprised of the Top 10 items from each day's poll results....so 4 items will not make the final cut!

Here is the topics for the lists:

Day1 (Oct. 13): Bats
Day2 (Oct. 14): Black Cats
Day3 (Oct. 15): Candy
Day4 (Oct. 16): Costumes
Day5 (Oct. 17): Costume Jewelry and Accessories
Day6 (Oct. 18): Creatures,Goblins, Monsters, Zombies
Day7 (Oct. 19): Ghosts
Day8 (Oct. 20): Graveyard

Starting Again!

I will finally be starting my Etsy Top 10 Lists again! I will also be making Artfire Top 10 Lists and possibly Top 10 Lists for other online handmade venues! I have also set up a typepad blog and have linked this blog to it. I created my typepad blog to read like a website. It had a main introductory page, with a link to my typepad blog The Daisy Frog Blog, a link to this blog, a link for everything related to my Etsy shop "My Favorite Shop", and Art/Crafts resource page, and a link for any suggestions a reader might have concerning my blogs or my shops. You can find my typepad site at http://www.daisyfrog.typepad.com

My CRAFTeReport blog will be solely for creating Top 10 lists, promoting the works of others.

SPECIAL Etsy Top Colored Pencil Drawings

I am going to go beyond the normal Top 10 List this time because I, as well as others, have noticed the general public's lack of interest for colored pencil drawings compared to the interest in paintings and crafts. Although paintings (oil paintings especially) have been on the top of the "quality" types of arts list forever, there is definitely a place in the art world for colored pencil drawings. A place among the "professional quality" arts. Colored pencil drawings by professional artists are created with top quality professional colored pencils on top quality paper suitable for professional colored pencil drawings. Colored pencil drawings require great control; mistakes cannot easily be corrected. In general, colored pencil drawings require many layers of colors to be applied to the paper to create areas of intensity, darkness, and even lightness. The great control that some artists have over their pencils allow them to create wonderfully realistic looking drawings. Their control allows them also to put much detail into their works. Not all quality, professional colored pencil drawings are of a realistic style. Many professional colored pencil artists create amazing works of abstract drawings as well that require just as much control as the realistic drawings require, but they also tend to require much more creativity on the part of the artist. So with that being said, I hope everyone who reads this blurb and views these great examples of colored pencil drawings will come to see that colored pencil drawings do indeed have a place in the professional art world.
