Meghan Burch creates fabric works of art

Aren't these coasters just adorable? I love the pop of the light green on the dark green. The frosty cold drink looks pretty chill too. Meghan is from CHICOPEE, MA, just a little northeast from here. This is what she has to say about her designs.

“My work is about playing with simple, two dimensional materials, images, shapes and patterns and transforming them into objects that are comfortable, useful and beautiful. I’m inspired by nature, the intersections of natural and man-made materials, creative non-artists, patterns of light, sound, food and architecture. My work with young children continually reminds me of how I think creation should be approached: as both play and work.”

Very well put, and very nice product.

Care to see what's around the bend?

Some really pretty jewelry designs, that's what. Meet Becky of ATBcreations (around the bend). Becky started making jewelry because she needed a holder for her badge for her day job. That was 3 years ago, and she has been having a blast making her whimsical creations ever since. She lives in TOLLAND, MA., selling her wonderful creations through Etsy and soon her own web site. She even teaches beadwork in Southwick. Becky is a very busy girl. Keep up the good work, Becky.
