With over 30 years of experience Karen Copeland is our featured artist today! She is a crafty mother of four!
Karen is inspired by fabric and enjoys searching Etsy for new prints. Her shop is full of all sorts of unique items, however "Ella Funt" happens to be my favorite! Fitting, don't you think? She's sooooo soft and cuddly, I want to put my arms around her! Please check out Karen's site http://soandsewcrafty.etsy.com/
Karen was introduced to Etsy by her sister who had recently gotten into candle making. When asked what was the first thing Karen could recall creating she responded "I think it was Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, made from folding old reader's digest then spray painting them and putting a Styrofoam ball on top and decorating!"
Some more of my favorites from Karen's shop are "Sammy the Scarecrow", and a husband and wife set of bunnies "Rupert and Renee".
I'm certainly glad Karen joined the Etsy community, and I'm sure after you visit her shop you will be too!
