Post image for stories from our fans

i am so inspired by this story and artwork sent in from reader keely, from savannah, georgia.  a college student who paints on the side, she was inspired by one of our summer display bikes to create jewelry out of wood, hemp, floss thread, scrapbook paper, fabric and free people catalogs!

it was this bike – specifically the wheels – that sparked her inspiration:

and here’s a look at the jewelry she created:

here are some of her paintings, which she creates using mixed media such as fabric, paper, glitter and acrylic paint.  i love how colorful and cheerful they are:

Tee pee-N-feathers

k8

Dream VW van

finally, i had to share this photo of her christmas tree, decorated with all DIY ornaments!

k6

now that’s a free people tree if i ever saw one :)

check out more of her work here. thanks so much for sharing, keely!

I can't believe the last dress has no votes yet! I like this one second best to the X axis dress. . .but apparently these are unpopular choices thus far! - Lauren Ladaisi Blog
