Art and Shops of Humans I Know

I will be making a series of posts that link to makers and purveyors of my acquaintance if you are looking for some cool humans to support this year.

The categories in this post are mostly jewelry. With a bit of clothes, sculpture, and chocolate.

I think we all know what comes first, yes?

Tempting Sweets is Missy Ciavarelli in Cleveland Ohio. She makes edible geekery (among other things, but lets be real here). Read her interview!

Facebook sometimes is just not the best. If the shop is down, feel free to contact her about anything you see on the site atmachevy at yahoo.

I myself have known the joy of a peanut butter filled dark chocolate Death Star. You deserve this.

LuLaRoe With Ellie Bean and Bug is one of my oldest friends Sarah Fletcher.

From the site:If you haven’t heard of LuLaRoe, they offer stylish, unique, and COMFORTABLE clothing for women, men, and children! Ranging from 2T to 3XL! There is truly something for everyone!

I will say that the leggings which are the most popular seller do not fit above a woman’s size 20. But I have found that some of their tops fit my glorious 24/26 in a very comfortable and flattering way.

Also they make matching ones in kid sizes if you want to rock the parent kid matching thing. (The pictures are web pulled, join her group to see the latest offerings!)

If you like a more modest cut with funky patterns you will love this company. Also join her Facebook store/group for an engaged, body positive, queer friendly shopping community!

Love of the Dark Arts is the place for dark and lovely painted reclaimed ceramic sculptures by Zira Michelle! Garden gnomes got nothing on dead critters in love.


Dancing Clay is the ETSY home for Kelly Lynn Daniels. She has made my favorite set of bowls that I love and use daily. If you want a gorgeous piece of wrought clay that makes eating even more delightful I highly recommend.
