Celebrating One Year on Etsy!

Today's post marks one year for me on Etsy!  It has been a rollercoaster of a ride and a steep learning curve, a curve which I am still on.  My range of creations have changed and expanded over the year and I have met so many lovely artists, crafters and handmade afficionados online in the process.
So to thank all of my supporters and to celebrate one year of intense craftiness, I am having a little giveaway!  Up for grabs is a prototype vintage art greetings card similar to the one pictured below.
You won't be receiving the pictured card, but will be able to design one to your specifications!  That's right, you can choose the colour of your card (white, light pink or light blue) and the illustration to be printed.  The backing paper will be a vintage book page, although you can have the vintage sheet music if you choose an instrument illustration.

    As for your contest;
    ENTRY #1: I would give a pic of the letter 'B' to one of my closest friends, Jessie, who appreciates art pieces and who loves things from the 30's.
    or I'd give a pic of an acoustic guitar to another very close friend, Luke, because he lives and breathes music. Writes songs and plays the guitar. He also appreciates art pieces.

  4. #2 entry
    I'd like to see the word Believe, faith, hope or love.
    Or one of a couple holding hands,kids holding hands or playing;or one of the ocean/beach or one w/a piano instead of a horn,as I play the piano a little and love music.
    Oh oh, or one of knitting needles and a basket or crochet hooks and basket or something like that. :)
    Idk if those are kinds of prints available or not.
    If I had to choose one from what you have available I'd choose the letter 'S' or your seashell. :)

    thank you! Have a great day! :D

  6. I would choose the sewing machine print for my SIL :) She could frame it and have it on her sewing room wall.

  7. Youre kidding right? Choose just one??
    My inner geek (ok, Im a geek through and through) loves the amoeba and the microscope. I also have a soft spot for Alice, so the White Rabbit rates high. I love the letters - so if I was gifting these, I'd probably choose the letter of the first name of my giftee. For myself, the sewing machine or scissors would be appropriate.
    I'd love to see more musical symbols, acoustic guitar (for my musically inclined friends) and a turtle (for meeeeeee).

  10. I was torn between the Monagram for my good friend who just got married or the seashell, for myself! The friend won out and I would get the monagram illustration in "E" for my friend who just got married.

    Thank you!!

  11. I really like your seashell vintage print. Maybe because it's summer or that seashells always remind me of my grandmother, but I am partial to them! I would love to see more varieties of seashell illustrations.

    Thank you for the chance!

  29. If I win, I would love the Art Print. White Rabbit. Alice in Wonderland. Vintage Dictionary Page. I would probably save it for a very special occasion - something that calls for a handwritten note to someone who truly appreciates good art. That may be Sharon, my good friend in Louisville, KY. Thanks for the chance!
