Support Handmade Spotlight: Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Store

Today I'm pleased to welcome another participant from my Support Handmade project!  It's none other than Suzy from Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom.  You'll love her sense of humor and one of a kind works of art, all created on her canvas of egg shells.
Hi, I'm Suzy from Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom.  By day, I'm a mild mannered Executive Assistant in a large company in downtown Atlanta.  But, when the evening rolls around, the gloves come off and I become a total crafting maniac.  The family is slightly relieved by the fact that rather than subject them to craft project after craft project, I have instead chosen to subject the rest of the world to it through my blog.  Unfortunately, they soon realized that not only do I blog about crafts, but I tend to blog about them too.  Because my life is a sitcom.  And some things are just meant to be shared.

Each week, I try to feature other artists and crafters and throw in a bit of my life along the way.  On Thursdays, I offer a Commercial Break Linky list for anyone that would like to advertise their site, their current project, their etsy shop, their new hairdo, whatever.  It is kinda a free-for-all, no rules party kinda thing.  It's like inviting everyone into my livingroom and telling them to help themselves from the fridge.  I get the pleasure of your company and don't have to do any cooking.  Works for me...

And there is my buddy, Tom Selleck and his mustache.  He hangs out with me every Wednesday when I do Guest Star interviews.  He thinks it's because he's famous.  But his mustache has it's own dressing room. Just saying. 

And every Friday, you can expect a tutorial of my latest project.  Some projects come together well, some are kinda a pain in the butt.  Sometimes I'm just as surprised as you are when the post comes out. 
I pretty much do anything craft-wise.  But I do have few specialties.  One of them is Ukrainian Egg Art, or Pysanky.  I love doing anything with lots of details and Pysanky, as you can see, is a very detailed art.  True Ukrainian eggs are full of symbolism and usually tell a story.  My eggs don't necessarily tell a story and are very Americanized, but the process and the attention to tiny detail are what keep me enthralled.  
Each egg is made by using a process of melting bees wax and adding colors of dyes.  If you would like to see how it is actually done, check out my tutorial for Ukrainian Eggs.  Most of my eggs take about 10 to 12 hours to complete and each one of them is an original, one of a kind piece.
These Ukrainian eggs make beautiful unique Christmas tree ornaments and can certainly by displayed year round.  They make a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift for someone special.  Be sure to check out my Etsy shop to see some of my collection.  All eggs are shipped gift-wrapped and ready for giving!
