Beautiful days and giveaways!

LOL... I live on Long Island, NY, and today is an absolutely gorgeous intro to September. Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year, I really adore it. As soon as October starts, I have a goal to do at least one outside thing a day to commemorate. We'll see how that goes, lol!


I made a new ACEO that I'm quite pleased with. Here it is!



It's a vellum psalm adhered to a pre-cut ACEO painted with blue distress ink. Then I affixed a cardboard stamped lighthouse and blue glitter-paper waves. I really like this one... I kept thinking of what else I could put on it, but I think it's great just the way it is.



And, to celebrate the opening up of the fall season, I'm having a giveaway! This one is really cool. The winner will receive their name designed in graffiti on durable cardstock... perfect for framing! The graffiti will be done in the color(s) of the winner's choosing. It will look hot! Scroll down two posts to see an example! So, if you'd like to win, here's all you have to do... Giveaway ends September 10!



(1.) Vist my Etsy Shop and post here telling me what your favorite item is and why.



That's it! Real easy, right? Well, I hope to get a lot of responses, and YOU could win! Thanks so much!!!

I think that ACEO is beautiful. I love lighthouses as well. Saw you on the etsy blog roll, and had to check it out. I look forward to seeing what's up and coming!

for my daughter's room it would be the Stained Glass fairy because I love the colors, and I agree, she definitely has spirit! But the one that stands out to me the most is the State of NY POOR with the WIC check... I work in Maine for a social services agency administering fuel assistance, and I can tell you I can definitely relate to the current economic situation our clients face...and there seems to be no end in sight as more and more are falling deeper into the abyss.

I think your lighthouse ACEO is fine just the way it is. My favourite item in your shop would be the "Love Beneath the Tide" though (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29862338) it's in my favourite colour, blue, and it just exudes a mysterious vibe. And it's in the seas- I like the ocean a lot =)

I like Love Beneath the Tide, because of the soft, dream-like feel...

I love the baby foot print one, it is too precious. As a mother of four, knowing my 7 month old is my last baby I try to hold onto every little detail: the feel of her hand, the smell of her skin, the way her little toes curl up when she is sleepin, the light that shines from her eyes when she smiles. I think until you have that first baby (possibly thrid lol) and watch them grow up and turn into their own person with their own ambitions and ideas you dont know how important it is to hold onto all of those tiny little details of life. This card does a wonderful job of capturing just how precious they really are. (And I love baby feet! lol)
Great job, super excited to get my Limbs card from you and see more to come!
