Dirty Mama's Slathers & Scrubs

Snickerdoodle_Sugar_Scrub

I offer a variety of sugar and salt scrubs, body butters, bath soaks and bath salts. All natural, no additives, completely vegan and good for your skin!

I firmly believe that jewelry should make a statement, not a suggestion. A love of all things silver inspires the work you will see on these pages. Each design is either one-of-a-kind or one of a limited edition of no more than five. You don’t want to see the same jewelry on everyone else, do you? You are unique and your jewelry should be, too.

ReCandle Company creates beautiful scented candles from 100-percent recycled and reclaimed scrap wax as pillars, in a variety of shapes including square, oval and round. Indulge in our other creations, including WineCandles, WineLights and TableTop Lights that are made with recycled wine and spirits bottles.

We firmly stand behind the power of being green. Our products are geared towards reducing the carbon footprint on the planet, so send us your old candles, or visit us at one of our many local events. We’re happy to answer any questions about the process of candle-making from reused wax.

Linn County Arts Guild

Linn_county_arts_guild

The Linn County Arts Guild was created to inspire, educate, engage and encourage the community in the creation of all forms of arts by providing a dynamic and positive environment to foster the creative process. Our mission is to encourage artists to come together, exchange ideas and develop a supportive culture throughout Linn County, Oregon. Our Guild is open to Artists and Crafters – acrylic, oil and watercolor painting, photography, basketry, jewelry, wordworking and crafts, sculpture, pottery, glass, fiber arts and etc. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 pm in our Gifts & Gallery Store at 605 Main Street in downtown Lebanon.

I have been working with recycled metal for a little over ten years. I seek out, not new, but old industrial castoffs such as farm tools and antique tractor parts. These pieces, that are featured in my work, hold the history of our farming and logging communities from rural Oregon. I have family roots in these fields, so by using parts from old tractors brings a feeling of connection to my family’s history. I feel it is my duty to save these special parts from being melted down for “scrap metal”.  It makes me cringe every time I see a truck loaded down with metal, headed for the scrap yard.

Colleen is an artist from the Willamette Valley in western Oregon.  Through the years she has used a range of mediums to create a wide variety of pieces, including oil paintings, glass etchings, ink drawings and of course wood burnings.  Here you can view samples of her work in wood burning and order custom pieces.

Custom art pieces can range from portraits to landmarks, pets to business signs.  You can send your own photos to have made into one-of-a-kind wood burned keepsakes.

Most of my art creations have some photographic components. Much of my work is hand painted using a drawing tablet connected to my computer. My “digital” brushes are so much more versatile than regular brushes. Not only can I select a brush with the typical shapes, widths, and materials but a whole new world of dimensional angles, textures and opacities are available digitally. I sometimes use photographic components from as many as 20 different photographs. Some of my work uses a photograph simply for the colors that are in the photograph. For me the photograph is often only the starting point for a new work. Sometimes I use a photographic element simply for background.

I believe the desire to adorn is what makes us human. I am a self taught jewelry artists and as long as I can remember I have been putting objects together to create adornment. Sometimes I wish I had more arms like those statues from India so I would wear more bracelets. The planet is important to me so I am moving away from gemstones and materials that are mined in other countries and am using more recycled, repurposed and scrap materials. Thrift stores are one of my favorite places to forage.

I get bored with production work so many of my pieces are one of a kind. My designs tend to be big, bold, and very organic. I live in the woods in the Pacific NW and am inspired by the forest and nature in general.  Blessings. Jan E O
