Shop Local, Shop Handmade - LaGrave Designs

Today I am kicking off my month long effort to help promote shopping local and handmade. I am going to feature various artists and their handcrafted work to give you ideas for gifts you might purchase for friends and loved ones on your holiday list.

London Bridge
Dawn at LaGrave Designs creates unique kaleidoscope art using photos of buildings, monuments, flowers and everyday objects. These are so cool and definitely not something you will find at a mall! A perfect gift for the traveler (or armchair traveler) or the person who has everything.

Harley Davidson Museum, Milwaukee
Go to the details page on her website to learn how this Seattle artist creates these amazing wall art pieces. She starts with a photograph, then uses the computer to turn that image into a kaleidoscopic image. Next many copies are made. She then cuts out layers and stacks them. The result is a 3-d work of art.
Fall Leaves
She has many designs to choose from, famous buildings and monuments from all over the world as well as local. Even a few designs for you Seahawks and Dr. Who fans. Holiday gifts should be ordered by December 1st for timely delivery.
