New etsy shop

I wanted to share a new Etsy shop with you that my friend Jan Obertein has opened. I've been wanting her to open one for a few years and she gave in and did so. I wish you could see her things in person because the photos, no matter how good, don't do her art justice. Jan works in pastels with a feminine feel and it reflects the fact that she taught china painting. Delicate, dainty touches through which she shares her heart.
 I'm fortunate to have a few of her china pieces and her fiber/CQ as well. She has a style all her own and I know she wouldn't want me to promote her work but honestly, I do so every chance I get because I love it and want everyone to have a chance to view or possibly own a bit for themselves. I beg her to send pictures so I can share in CQGatherings magazine. I was thrilled when she did the purse accent in the current Autumn issue. I think it is so sweet and you will be seeing them in my work.
So, with the chance of her getting miffed at me, I want to share her shop and some pieces I love with my blog friends.
Her etsy shop is StitchesbyJanO. Feel free to mark her as a favorite so you can see her new items added.
These are a few of her fiber greeting cards.

 A Needle book
 A CQ purse
 Crazy quilt bolster type pillows

 Rag Journal

 So you see why I can't NOT share these with you? Sorry Jan :-)
