Wrapped Canvas Groupon! Woohoo!

16 Oct

I know, I know… This is a short one. Really.  I know I say that in almost every post and email and then I get typing and the time just *poof*.  Huh?  What time is it?  How long was I… Oh! Hello!

Anyway.  I bought my first “groupon” a couple of months ago and redeemed it on Friday and kicked myself for not having bought more than just the two that I did.  It was for a 16 x 20″ wrapped thick canvas print from CanvasOnDemand.com for $45 and that includes shipping!  (the retail value was somewhere around $120)

I was thrilled to see that they are offering it again on Groupon! They are perfect for gifts for the upcoming holidays or if you want to customize your walls with your own fantastic art.

Here’s one of the photos that I am having done… It’s a nice shot of color that just makes me want to do stuff (so I also have it as my background on my desktop)…

Anyway, head on over… The Groupon opportunity ends on Sunday night.  Definitely one that should not be missed.

Here’s the link again:  Groupon.com

Sweet Gherkins! I am a Ninja of my Craft!

20 Aug

This has to be one of the coolest features- not just because it is about my art, but because well, as some of you may be aware of, I was a bit of an alternative sort of Ninja back in a different life time.  But more on that another time….I’m in a bit of a rush as the witching hour is upon us and nobody has had a complete meltdown just yet but I think I must go spread some merriment and delegate.

Check it out!  Fantastic blog!

Last Minute Gift Idea

16 Dec

There is still time to order from my Etsy.com shop for the holidays(within the US)!

I love giving my jewelry as gifts to almost everyone on my shopping list. Sometimes though, we all have gift emergencies. I have great treasures in my Etsy shop for women of all ages and a few pieces that are suitable for men, but some folks fall outside of that demographic or I just don’t know them well enough to hazard a guess on their tastes or personal style.

For example, I adore our UPS man, but all I really know about him is that he wears a brown uniform, goes above and beyond what I expect a parcel delivery person to do, he’s got a nice smile and fabulous eyes, and he brings treats aka stuff I ordered and forgot I ordered. Yay! Everything is a surprise!

(Holy cannoli, I just realized that I picture our UPS man as the UPS guy in Legally Blond. Funny. I don’t think I really know what our UPS guy actually looks like. Weird. I’m not bending and snapping though, not with these old joints! I’d get stuck and not even be able to sign for my packages. How embarrassing!)

Anyway, for those “I need a gift for someone and have had cash on hand since around the time they introduced debit card transactions at every checkout under the sun” predicaments may I suggest:

Amazon.com printable gift cards! That’s right! You don’t even need a legal name, full name, or email address. Just punch in your info and a message and any amount. Pick a graphic for your card (there are over 50 at last check…lots of them remind me of Target’s gift cards). Checkout and in a few minutes Amazon will email you a link which lets you print the foldable card (made me all nostalgic for Print Shop on the Apple IIc, though an inkjet printer and the modern graphics make these much prettier).

So while I suggest jewelry, jewelry, jewelry, and related adornments, I do know that sometimes you need a one-size-fits-all-tastes-and-budgets-last-minute-solution.

Without further delay, here’s the linkey-do so you can check out the options for yourself.

Mama DOES have eyes in the back of her head!

Marion Crane Earrings from Clevergirl.Etsy.com

Boo! Eye see you!

I love Halloween. But I love Halloween from behind the scenes.  I like the planning and creating and the troubleshooting.  For me, it is like a treasure hunt to warm me up for the upcoming holidays. I have to find just the right thing, I can plan all year for it, and I have to have a backup plan.

Les Yeux

Les Yeux

I do not like getting dressed up and people in masks and people who are barely recognizable freak me out. Seriously. I have trouble understanding spoken language unless I can see the person’s mouth and I have made an ass out of myself (there would be a costume!) more than once by enthusiastically approaching folks I think I know and then I realize oops- not them.  It is my hope, that these oopses become clear to me before I hug the person, kiss them on the cheek, or sassily pinch their behind (happened to me, ClubMed age 10. I thought the skinny blond was my mom. It wasn’t. It was a shocked dude. My mother thought it was hilarious. I didn’t tell her about the part where the person was a Mick Jagger-ly skinny dude.).

But I do enjoy indulging in some of the lower key camp of the holiday.

I have a pair of the eyeball hairpins for my own use (the ones offered are unworn) and it really reitterates the eyes in the back of my head thing with the kiddo (and appeals, I think, to his very visual learning style.

The earrings were inspired by the shower scene in Psycho, and the necklace is just a gorgeous, matte eye.

All of them are set in handmade, from scratch, sterling silver settings and are heirloom quality.

Which, of course, is as important as design and style when eyeing a signature piece.

If you order before 10/28 6am EST I’ll send orders that include treasures from my “Great Pumpkin” category in my Etsy shop via USPS Priority Mail (within the US) and I’ll refund your shipping charges once they ship. I am offering a $4.00 credit for international friends, though international orders will not arrive in time for the Great Pumpkin)…. Just mention “blog” in the notes to seller area and I’ll take care of the rest.  If you are in the US and need one of these shipped overnight via FedEx or UPS give me a holler and I’ll send you a quote.

Anyway, Happy Trick or Treating!  Now go shopping!
