Hey Everyone!!! This is beginning to be my favorite time of the week! It’s time to put the spotlight on a fellow artisan! This week I have the pleasure of introducing you to Ms. Gwendolyn Lancaster, owner of GL Accessories. This amazing artist is based in Tampa, FL. She has a unique style and creative nature. When visiting her website, it was hard to choose which piece to feature. Shown above, I am wearing 3 crochet rope scarves. These are so fun and WARM! You can wear them stacked as I have in the photo above or you can wear them one at a time. You pick your color combination. Here are a few close ups…


When speaking with Gwendolyn, I asked her what was one thing she wanted to share with our readers. Her response was absolutely inspiring. ” You can let them know that they need to step out and try regardless of what they are scared of…failure. I learned to crochet by watching a DVD I rented from the local library. Then I had to overcome the fear of failure and open a shop hoping someone else would like what I have made. So they can do it!” These are two fears that stop so many people from following their dreams, failure and acceptance. She has an active coupon code LOVE14 to save 14% off of orders, expires 2.14.14 on her website Here are few more of my favorites:


The jewelry I am wearing was a blast to create and accents the crochet scarves really well. It is available on Here is a close up of the jewelry:


This project is a lot of fun and is becoming another creative outlet for Ekocreashunz, simply because we are allowed to get inspiration from our fellow artisans.
