i met laura grover at craft fix this year , and i fell in love with her work. before the fair even started i dropped most of my spending money at her table, and i think i'd have bought everything she had if i could've!
she wanted to do a trade with me for some crocheted garlands to hang on her christmas tree, so i was happy to oblige. she made the wonderful drawing of violet for me.
she does beautiful illustrations, wood-burning and lots of custom work. you should check her out!
