This feature is about two people who are absolutely unstoppable. I am not sure they even take a minute to breathe. Well of course they do, but you catch my drift. Very busy and extraordinarily talented in many areas. Yes and I am talking about Larissa and her husband, Eric.
As Larissa says in her profile, she sees herself as "a lawyer, teacher, face painter, artist, photographer, sewer, knitter, baker, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and pet owner". Whew that is a lot. Plus, they are now beekeepers. Imagine that. Oh and she forgot one. She also gardens, grows her own veggies and stuff. Takes my breath.
Larissa created amazing hives for her bees, hand painted with Winnie the Pooh characters and fish and it was awesome. I am sure her bees just love their home.
Her husband Eric, loves to cook, smoke and grill and has developed his very own sauces which he just bottled for sale and shipment and on his way home from bottling, sold many cases out of his car. God has truly blessed this couple and now you will see first hand the results of all those blessings. Just take a look and then I will tell you all the places you can find them.
These beautiful cards show off some stunning roses that she photographed in New Jersey and in the Bronx. I just want to put them to my nose to take a sniff.
Below you will see a design entirely Larissa's own. You will not find this anywhere else in the world. She started out making one of these for her nephew, I believe for a gift and as she progressed she showed her work to many artists at Handmade Artists Forum in our "What are You Doing Today" feed. Isn't it amazing.
Oh, I also forgot to tell you, Larissa is an actress. The photo below is based on her character "Flossie" in a theatre production of "Cinderella Confidential". She also made each one of the cast members a "Flossie the Cow" as keepsakes. She also created a lot of the costumes for that production.
And here we have her hand knitted wash cloths. Yep, scarves, mittens, washcloths, you name it, she does it.
Here we have some of her other talents. She makes candles, soap, insect repellents to name a few.
Moving On again.
Face Painting. Isn't this amazing?
