Bish Denham said...

Great illustrations! I tat (a form of lace making) on the side and sell at a market/fair held every month in town. I've been thinking of opening an Etsy store for a while....

Jessica Bell said...

Wow! What awesome illustrations! Um, you know me and what other stuff I do :o)

Hannah Kincade said...

hmmmm, other talents? I have the uncanny ability to throw together random foods and make them delicious. Or so says The Man. I watch a lot of cooking shows.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

wow, I wish I could draw. My sister is very artistic.I should've employed her to do my cover.

Joanna St. James said...

my other talent would be accumulating degrees i never use so yeah all i do now is write. But she is good!

Melissa Gill said...

I love those illustrations. Thanks for the 411.

Susan Fields said...

Those are amazing illustrations! Wow, she is so talented. It seems like a lot of writers are also artists, but not me! My brother must have gotten all those particular genes. :)

Nomes said...

okay those are BRILLIANT and I love them immensely.

I once dreamed of being an illustrator and even did some paid work illustrating for a while - but now I'm much more motivated with writing.

I seem to get into one creative endeavour and get obsessed with it and then end up moving on to something else entirely...

Joanne said...

I do like to combine photography with my blog, finding inspiration to living our passions with the perspective I find looking through the lens.

Meredith said...

So cool! I need to check out Etsy more often, too! Love Rose's art--it's so creepy and intriguing.

Stephanie said...

Etsy is very cool!!! I wish I had something that I did well enough to actually sell there.

Sarah Callejo said...

I love that there is a place for people with artistic ability can show off their stuff and make money.

Aleta said...

I think Etsy is great - love to shop on Etsy, because it's handmade items!

I make jewelry (I have a separate blog for it called Aletas Accessories). But I don't have an Etsy shop.

Thanks for sharing the link, I'll check out her work!

Amanda Sablan said...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE Etsy. Ebay, Smhebay.

Thanks for the linkage; that is some snazzy artwork. The only way I can draw is if I copy someone else's work. xD

Jai Joshi said...

Holly Ruggiero said...

I love her style.

Janet Johnson said...

I so wish I could draw. But I translate . . . or does that count as writing, too? ;)

Hmmm . . . I like to play the piano, though I'm no Mozart. Just for fun.

Belle Wong said...

Love the artwork! As for me, I draw, just not very well :)

Lenny Lee! said...

Jenn Wilks said...

I wasn't able to get to any pages using the links you provided. It looks like you've added an extra line to the address that I had to take out to get there. It should say: http://rosecooperwriter.blogspot.com/ so if you take out the middle part (the www.blogger.com) it should become clickable.

Very cute artwork, btw. Thanks for sharing!
