OK, Earth Day was a lucky day for me. I was the lucky, lucky winner of 2 blog giveaways! I never win that kind of stuff!!
So, to say a huge "thank you", I want to introduce you to these awesome shops and show you what a lucky gal I am.
First, This Old Hen House was featuring an AWESOME artist named Justin Vining and everyone that went to his shop, picked out their favorite item and left a comment about that item, were entered into a drawing to win one of his amazing prints. I was immediately drawn (no pun intended) to his interpretation of the famous Van Gogh painting, Starry Night, and left a comment about that on her blog. Anyway, He is so talented and I am very, very excited to receive this from his shop: My Starry Night by Justin Vining. Please check his shop out and This OId Hen House's blog and Etsy shop! They are both amazing shops!
Second, I stumbled upon this great blog yesterday in my Earth Day postings and found this very Eco-Friendly Etsian, Mandy Bags. Mandy was posting about her Earth Day activities on her blog yesterday mandybags.blogspot.com and I was really taken with the products she offers that are totally Eco-Friendly and so cute. I posted some of my musings on the day and right before bed, I got a lovely message from Mandy telling me that I would receive a special gift from her! I do not know what I will receive, but if it is anything like what she has in her shop, I will be thrilled! All of the items in her shop have a reduce, reuse, recycle element to them (as mentioned in her shop announcement). I love shops like this and will be back to her shop for some of her amazing totes! Please take a minute to visit these great shops and blogs. My lucky day taught me to always support other folks in their endeavors by reading their blogs, leaving comments and talking about their shops. This not only introduces our craft to the general public, but to other Etsians out there. So, keep blogging!
