And the winner is...

The winner of my postcards & ACEO giveaway is ArtMind! Her word was "breathtaking".

She has a beautiful etsy shop, which I urge you to check out! :D

Thank you so much to all those who entered. I appreciate it immensely. If you entered into the giveaway and would like a postcard from me, send me your name and mailing address: and I'll send you a postcard with a little message on it (so it won't be blank, but you'll have a little message from me and pretty picture to display).

New Postcards + Giveaway!

Please check out the latest spot I've been featured, at StopsWithMe. :D

Today UPS dropped off a small, but heavy box. I opened it and was thrilled to see that it was 500 postcards that I had ordered.

They turned out lovely. I am really happy with them. The glossy front feels so smooth and soft. Although I only had one of my images printed, I am already offering little sets of postcards in my etsy shop.

Want your own? Comment with your favourite word to describe my shop (and your etsy username, or your email - just some way for me to contact you), and you'll be entered to win your own small set of postcards, and an ACEO. Winner will be chosen on the 21st of May. You don't have to pick a different word than the ones already posted. Winner will be chosen randomly. :)

This giveaway is being promoted on WinCrafty - the place to find handmade giveaways.

this giveaway is now closed.

Thursday Night Favourites

Here are some beautiful items I have seen around etsy lately. I pick these once a week based off of what is most recent in my favourites. Click on the images to check out the item listing.

I love this photo a lot. This is the original Polaroid - a beautiful one-of-a-kind photograph. The colours muted, but powerful. And the shape of that hat is to die for. Definitely a favourite. Oh, how I wish I had lots of money to decorate my room with, as I would be picking at least one photograph from matchstickgirl's shop.

Sadly, I think most etsy vintage shops (that I've seen) have pretty bad taste (or really good taste, but they keep all the good stuff). However, GreyBrocket's etsy shop does not disappoint. You are sure to find pretty clothing, cute (bright) shoes, and lovely housewares. Plus, she has some great screen printed stuff, too!

Although I am not a huge fan of animals (very allergic) this puppy is too cute to ignore. It looks so timid and weak and adorable. The huge, far apart eyes are to die for. This is almost too much cuteness for one post. Plus, Susan Sabo (the photographer) donates 50% to whichever shelter the animal she has photographed is currently living.

Simple. Pretty. Sophisticated. The colours and composition of this beautiful little tea cup set is just lovely. The delicate little illustrations leave me feeling so warm and happy. Something I would love to have in my kitchen. Esther Coombs' work is something to keep an eye out for!

Chronicle 31 - Tomorrow

The Art Group (which I am a proud member of) over at Neosynthesis launched their 31st Chronicle entitled Tomorrow. Be sure to check out all the kickass art. Including my very simple collage, which I plan to put up for sale on etsy.

(the penny in the centre has its year visible, which is 1991, the year I was born).

I am also working on designing some new business cards. I have come up with a very simple front, and on the back of the card I will have samples of my work. I'm happy with it, but feedback is always welcome.
