10-Year-Old Girl’s Dreams

February 6, 2010

Jo Ann Stevens of Down To Earth Pottery's Etsy Treasury featuring Fruits of the Bloom

Remember when you were ten years old?  What were your dreams?  Maybe you wanted to grow up to be just like your mom or dad, or maybe one of your grandparents?

Thanks to Jo Ann Stevens of Down To Earth Pottery on Etsy, we have come to know an entire family of creative types!  Jo Ann listed Fruits of the Bloom’s Cat Lover’s Bow in her “Grateful Green” Treasury; she is a talented ceramic artist, potter, mud thrower, glaze genius, jewelry-maker, wire wrapper, and more! Jo Ann’s daughter, Kristine, is the creator behind maddiebee123, a shop full of whimsical,  imaginative, and stylish hand sewn children’s clothes.  But the talent does not stop here…

Madison, 10-year-old glass artist and daughter of Kristine, granddaughter of Jo Ann, has opened her very own Etsy shop, Leaping Lizard!  (The talent is obviously in the genes, folks!) Madison displays her fused glass art magnets in Leaping Lizard and has a goal of achieving 11 sales by February 11th when she turns 11!  Madison’s work is as affordable as it is beautiful, please click on the image below to visit Leaping Lizard.

Can you imagine the opportunity of buying Picasso’s art when he was a 10-year-old?  Be sure to start your collection of Madison’s work today and help a nearly-11-year-old’s dreams come true!

Dreams don’t stop when you’re 10!  Caitlin’s wishes are fulfilled when baby’s and little girl’s sport the artisan bracelets she’s spins!  Please click on the image below to take a closer look at her latest little girl bracelet in Fruits of the Bloom!

      I’m so glad you both were pleased, Jo Ann! I remember selling my first piece of art when I was nearly 7 years old (custom commission, no less) of painted light switch plates with balloons and the dear lady’s child’s name. That vote of confidence in my work stayed with me for a lifetime, and we wish the same for Maddie!

      Maddie’s a very talented young lady! Here’s to a lifetime filled with creating wonderful art, Maddie!

      All Our Love to Both of YOU!,
