She's Crafty - Women's History Month Edition 3

Another week of Women's History Month means another set of crafty items featuring amazing women in history!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with these peg versions of Four History-Making Women by Katie of MakingsFromMommyland.
History is full of strong women and now you can show them off. These little peg women can be used as decoration to grace your desk or living space as a great conversation set or they can be used as a toy to teach your child or children about powerful and strong women in history. This is the American history edition of these peg people and includes Rosie the Riveter, Rosa Parks, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Amelia Earhart on the larger 3.5 inch peg dolls.
She also has a set of Little Women peg people, and will happily make any other amazing women you might wish to have.

These Nina Simone Earrings by Afua Kumasi of AfriqueLaChic are truly amazing, just like Nina herself!
If you love Nina Simone then you will truly appreciate these fan earrings. Nina was beautiful, strong, and bold in character and so are these earrings. They glisten and shine and catch light with your movement. People will ask you if that is Nina Simone on your ears.

"Come, come my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles and see the world is moving." Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Need a post card to cheer up your feminist BFFs? How about this elegant oversized card featuring a quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the artwork of Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring of DeadFeminists!

Or, if you are the type of feminist to wear her heroines on her sleeve (or backpack or bookbag), how about a great hand-painted patch featuring the indomitable Ida B. Wells? Artist Deirdre McCorkindale paints and sews and sells her patches in her shop SpidersParlour.
“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.” Ida B. Wells
If you'd like, you can make a whole set of patches featuring awesome women from history: Zora Neale Hurston, Mary Shelley, Virginia Woolf, or Angela Davis. She can also do custom patches of your favorites, if you don't see them in her shop.

I really like the style of this Marie Curie giclée art print by Joanna of RNDMS. It's the stricking simplicity of colors and image that attracts me, and makes it a perfect print for almost any space.
