Rachel Austin


Paintings by Rachel Austin, on Etsy! Great art from a lovely seller starting at only $25. You have to visit her website, she has a beautiful portfolio, you’ll enjoy browsing it. Rachel?s paintings invoke a sense of untouched beauty, simple yet bold, but never over the top. I love the shapes and colors that she uses, and in addition to her oil paintings, she uses various other mediums, such as watercolor and mixed media. Her oil paintings are my favorites though, just look at these, stunning!

HeatherJeany


I only recently discovered the screenprinted stationery of HeatherJeany while visiting Craftland in Providence. Great color palette of vibrant, juicy hues and bold retro graphics. At $4 a pop, these cards are great for framing, too.

Young and Withit


Young and Withit is a husband and wife team from Austin and they create these fun cards that are mostly hand screen printed using a print gocco. Gotta love a family business, especially one that seems to love Gnomes. Mad props to indie couples!

Mayberry Sparrow


I really love these original hand carved block prints from Etsy seller Mayberry Sparrow. The Swedish horse notecards are my favorite (in blue, although other colors are available), I’d love to see this print on a tea towel, wouldn’t you? Mayberry Sparrow also does custom work, as she says, “I’m always happy to carve another stamp!”.

In addition to stationery, I even spotted some pretty handmade blankets. Mayberry Sparrow has a dash of whimsy to their work that I really like, it’s colorful and just makes me smile. In the end, isn’t that why we are so drawn to design of all kinds, because it just makes us feel good?
