EtsyRAIN Handmade Holiday Show + Black Friday/Cyber Monday!

Happy early Thanksgiving, everyone! I’m super excited for Thursday, spending time with family and basically being a glutton. Also, excited for Friday and Saturday as I’ll be at McCaw Hall in Seattle Center at this year’s EtsyRAIN Handmade Holiday Show! This will be their biggest show ever, with over 100 awesome etsy sellers. If you live nearby, do consider coming by and supporting your local artists! Each day the first 100 visiters will receive a free swag bag full of some serious goodies, and there will be beer/wine. Come on. You know you want to! ūüôā

Here are some of the amazingly pretty things you’ll find¬†(click to go to the treasury). There will be booths with candy, jewelry, bath¬†products, clothing, bags, accessories, toys, candles, pet goodies, paper goods, and of course – lots of art!¬†I plan on doing most of my holiday shopping locally, and this is the place to go to stock up! is also having some sales going on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to thank all yous-guys for allowing me to support my art habit day-in and day-out. This is one of my favorite times of year, taking the time to pick out special little gifts for all of my favorite people.

Friday: 20% off everything! Just use coupon code: “YAY2012” – use it yourself, or share with friends! This is a great way to save on original artwork, batches of cards to keep or give, T-shirts or totes!

Monday: Free worldwide shipping! Use code: “SHIP2012” – this is a great deal for everyone, but a special thank you for all my international friends – I know shipping costs can get hefty (flying around the world will do that) – so Monday, no matter which time zone you’re in – get your goodies shipped free!

Alright, goodnight/goodmorning, everyone!




thank you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  ^.^

This year has been amazing, and I have you guys to thank for everything. With every piece of feedback, every comment, visit¬†or purchase, I’m reminded of how lucky I am to be able to make¬†this [humble] living as an artist.¬†I get so much inspiration and help from my large – given and chosen – family of artists and creators. I am so absolutely lucky to know you. You all know who you are!

To my friends in the United States, have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! And to my friends out of the country (all sexy and exotic, you lot), have a fantastic Thursday and treat yourselves well. None of you get trampled this weekend, or get too stressed. Drink tea, coffee, hot chocolate, whiskey, whatever your comfort of choice, and give each other back rubs.

I’m keeping busy right now packing up little presents to tuck in any orders off of etsy that come in this weekend, from ‘Black Friday’ to this newfangled ‘Cyber Monday.’ I’m finding all sorts of wonderful things that I want so badly for myself on the etsy, but trying really hard just to get little goodies for other people. We’ll see how that goes!

I have so many favorite things, but here is a quick snapshots of some of my favorites, which would make super-fantastic gifts (hint, hint)! Enjoy, and happy weekend!!
