Handmade Reviews: Feverworm’s Dark Fairy Tale Stickers and Eye Buttons

Feverworm Etsy Purchases

Today I wanted to do something a little different. As a handmade seller and doll collector it is super important to me to be a part of supporting the community that supports me. Because of that I love buying handmade items and I thought it would be a nice to post mini reviews here.

Above is a package that I got a few days ago from Etsy seller feverworm. It came in two little orange and white bags and had a business card and an awesomely creepy possum sticker. I think it’s just me, but I really love it when sellers put a handwritten note in their packages. It’s something I always do, and it just adds the personal touch you want when you buy handmade. I bought their Fanciful Gaze 1.5″ pinback buttons ($4) and their Little Red and Alice sticker duo ($2). Their shipping was reasonably priced and reasonably fast so I’m not going to go into it.

Their creepy chibi Little Red Riding Hood and Alice (in Wonderland) stickers were what made me click “buy” in the first place. They don’t have the feel of professionally printed stickers to me, as in they don’t seem to be vinyl, but they are still nice quality. Oddly, the possum sticker was professionally printed. The illustrations themselves are so creepy cute, Alice’s red eyes and Red’s taupe skin are really nice touches. I can’t wait to get yelled at by my IT guy for sticking these on my laptop.

“The Dream Melt” by Camilla d’Errico

The Dream Melt

“The Dream Melt” is a stunning painting by Camilla d’Errico for The Candy Escape exhibition at Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine Gallery in New York. I’m crazy in love with it and wish I could have picked up the original. The melting, rainbow candy tentacles are so unusual; you can tell from this piece that d’Errico’s style is really evolving. The suction cups on the tentacles look at lot like stick lollipops, so there’s an interesting element of optional illusion to this piece as well.

This beautiful painting is now available as a signed, open edition print in d’Errico’s Etsy shop.
