I woke up this morning to a sale on Etsy!
I sold this one-of-a-kind hand-painted basket. I was especially pleased because the person who bought it was giving it to a lady who just passed the bar. From the gift message to be enclosed, I learned that purchaser is her boss at the law firm. Isn’t that she a wonderful boss? I’m happy to have a small part in wishing the ‘official’ lawyer well. I smiled the whole time I was packing it for shipment. :0)
I’ve had great fun working on these “Thumbelina” note cards. They come in a set of 5 cards with corresponding envelopes. This is the front of one. The inside, of course, is blank for your message.
Here is the back of the card.
Here is the envelope.
Each card is different, and the colors of the note cards will be different for each set.
These can be used for special occasions, holidays, or ‘just because.’
They make me smile when I look at them.
These will be listed on LindaLewis on ArtFire
and CreativeArtwks on Etsy
These will also be available as stationery and thank you notes. Pics to follow.
One of a kind, hand-painted “Valentine Candy” basket.
“Valentine Candy” is a one-of-a-kind hand painted wooden basket by Linda Lewis. The oval basket is 11″ long x 9.5″ wide x 7 ” tall. (The basket is about 13.5″ tall with the handle extended straight up.) The dimensions of the inner basket at the base are approximately 8″ x 6″.
The “squares” created by the weaving are painted either a rich red or with a clear glitter paint. Then 3-dimensional glitter paint is used to draw either red or silver hearts in the squares. Sayings from the traditional heart candy treats are printed on the larger squares all around the basket. Glitter hearts decorate the handle of the basket as well.
Give this to the one you love as is, or fill it with goodies. Either way, she’ll remember your love long after Valentine’s Day is over!
$29.99 plus free shipping to the contiguous United States.
Please order right away to be sure it will be delivered before Valentine’s Day.
Do you have a child, grandchild, niece or nephew that drags his or her feet when asked to write a thank you note for a gift received?
I just added these to my Etsy and ArtFire shops –
A good friend of mine suggested that I offer the option of themes, such as cat lovers, to my thank you note cards in order to encourage kids to write thank yous for the gifts received. I think this would be a FUN way to encourage kids to write a personal note when they can choose from 5 designs with their name on them. Bright, colorful, cartoony – many of them with a 3-dimensional touch, like glitter glue collars, string whiskers, etc. Tell me what theme you would like, plus a name, and I’ll do my best to make both your relative AND the gift giver smile! $14.99 for the set of 5 with free shipping in the contiguous United States.
For flower lovers, I offer this group of 5 hand-painted, personalized thank you note cards. These are mostly ‘flowers-that-exist-only-in-my-own-mind,’ and I have great fun painting different styles and colors. These are watercolor or acrylic with pastel backgrounds. Personalization at no extra charge. It’s FUN for children or adults to send a special thank you with their name on it – even if they have to write a short note to go with it. The child smiles, choosing which floral design to use. The recipient smiles, feeling special and appreciated. Win/win! $14.99 for the set of 5 cards and envelopes and FREE SHIPPING to the contiguous United States.
