CraftyGirl's Featured Shop: CraftzByHand

I love finding one of a kind pieces on Etsy; it's so fun to see what creations Etsy sellers make & what ideas they come up with. A lot of one of a kind pieces are inspired out of need, or a desire to make something new out of something that most people would throw away. Etsy shop CraftzByHand creates one of a kind mosaic crosses from broken dishes (as well as offering original paintings). It's always fun to see different patterns and colors mixed together, and being able to reuse items that would normally be discarded is a great way to reduce the amount of waste that we, as a nation, produce. Owner Sandra Ames loves hunting for vintage plates to use. Here's my top 3 favorite picks from Etsy shop CraftzByHand:





Broken dishes Mosaic Cross, Brown, green, blue with embelishment 




Original Acrylic Painting of flowers, 10 x 8", yellow with blue background 




Broken dish mosaic cross in yellow with blue flower detail 



Until next time, stay crafty (and buy handmade)!
