Modern Classical Silhouettes

A big thank you to Pickwick Press for creating a number of BNR treasuries this week that had my items featured in them.

Pickwick Press creates classic silhouettes with a modern twist and more. Take a look at some of my son's favorite characters.

Sunday Shopping With This BNR Treasury - Revised

Pickwick Press, a teammate on SAHM of Etsy, has included my Daddy Sign in her wonderful BNR Treasury today! It will stay open until there are 10 sales and if you purchase from her you'll receive two spots! Buy any item from any of the featured shops, no minimum purchase required!

If you are looking for a cute way to let him know he's going to be a daddy, my small, wooden Daddy Sign is the perfect way!

This was the sign featured in the treasury before it was changed to the items below.

Cheers :-)

New Blog Design - What Do You Think?

As you can all see, I've once again redesigned my blog. This is the third or fourth time I've done it and I am sorry to say I didn't get screen shots of the first two designs but what do you think of the new look?

Before March 17, 2011

After March 17, 2011

If you like the new design, do you think it would be better if the sidebar background was a shade of gray rather than the same black as the main posts background?

Also, since you are here, check out the giveaways I'm sponsoring over in the right hand column for your chance to win one of my Custom Name Signs or some Digital File Packs.

Cheers :-)

Let The Sunshine In

I love stained glass in all it's forms but when I saw this Poppy Field Panel by Artophile, one of my Etsy Expats teammates, I completely fell in love. This panel has over 160 pieces of glass which have been painted and fired to add detail and depth to the design. It is framed in unfinished oak and hung with heavy duty chain. The detail in this piece is incredible!

These are a few more of Artophile's beautiful stained glass pieces. Click on the individual pictures to be taken to the listings on Etsy.

Happy 1 Year Etsy Anniversary to Artophile!
