Oh Canada

No matter where in the world you live, I think it's important to have national pride. I am a Canadian and think that Canada is a pretty great country. We're first to celebrate Thanksgiving. Our elections are done. Our banks are still healthy. (Just saying - tongue in cheek!) We get real winters where you can skate on ponds and go tobogganing. And we've got talent. From Howie Mandel to Celine Dion, and a whole slew of famous and not so famous talents all born north of the 49th parallel.

Canadians are well represented in the visual arts and fine craft fields too. These are just a few of the artisans from north of border that are featured on Etsy.

Lori Mirabelli from Ontario.

Poetic Designs by Yolanda Prang from Ontario.

Robert Glass Art from Quebec.

Lenkart from Ontario.

Fallen Roses by Jennifer Scott from Ontario.

Studio 17 from Ontario.

In all seriousness, talent knows no boundaries and no matter where in the world you are from, beauty and style are still an important part of our everyday lives. Be proud of who you are and where you are from; and support independent artisans!
