Monday Morning Merchant

I know, it's not Monday.LOL But my Monday Morning Merchant this week is Laura from Cave Creek Primitives. Not only is Laura a talented artist, she is also a great team member that will help in any way she can.
Laura named her business after the surroundings of her home in Kentucky. She has a real Cave Creek and lots of caves in her area so what better name that Cave Creek Primitives?
She has been sewing and crafting most of her life but starting making primitives about 6 years ago. She opened her Etsy shop in 2010. She gets her inspiration from amny things including nature, her pets, other artists and sometimes they just pop in her head. She makes most of her designs and says that she rarely plans ahead. She will get an idea and draw it out and let it guide her where it wants to go. I am in awe of her creativity and she has a style all her own! She plans on making patterns to sell for some of her creations. All of her creations are rag stuffed with fabrics that she has left over. She uses lots of buttons for her dolls and she has a way of using botanicals that gives them their own look.
Laura has her own studio and feels really blessed to be able to do what she loves for a living. She gives a lot of her creations to family and friends as well as selling them.
I love Laura's designs! She has her own unique style and you can tell she takes real pride in her work. Here are a few of my favorite items that Laura has in her Etsy shop. This mouse loos so real and he is enjoying his cookie that he snatched.LOL

She has several pull toys and they remind me of old toys that pilgims would make for their children. Love them!

This little pig has always been one of my favorites.

And this crow is just toooooo cute!!

Here's the links to Laura's sites so be sure and check out her other designs and stop by her blog.
