Etsy Take Five Tuesday

How are you doing? It’s time for Etsy Take Five Tuesdays and today I have some fabric, art prints, wallets, wooden letters and fashion illustrations to share with you for a little color and fun. One shop is even extending a special discount to her customers… Curious to see who it is? Let’s get started and you’ll find out!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Stylish Viv from Ish & Chi is not only a great blogger but also a talented decorator and artist based in Sydney, Australia. Her work is so pretty and girly — many of them originals!

Peggy Wolf is from Germany but who now lives in London. She studied fashion design and then discovered her talent lies not in designing clothes but in drawing them, along with beautiful women wearing her designs. I really like her aesthetic – her color choices are gorgeous!

Designer William Dohman from St. Paul, Minnesota has a passion for photography, prints and creating recycled wood signs.

Ever since watching Dear Sukie show Martha Stewart how her craft wallets are made I’ve been thinking about featuring Kristy Boucher’s work on decor8. She makes everything from moo card holders to holders for passports along with wallets in many sizes. Get 10% off your order when you tell me her that you found her on decor8 — Just write in the “Notes to Seller” box at checkout and she’ll refund 10% of your purchase to your Paypal account.

Fabric! Weeee! Can you ever get enough? Not me! Booster Seat is another great surface pattern designer on Etsy with fun fabrics made by Anda Corrie in Brooklyn.

    I love those recycled wood signs.
    That is just the motivation I need to get my craft area functional (i.e finally finish unpacking the rest of the boxes in the garage and then have a BIG yard sale!).
    THEN I can set up my craft space, complete with one of those signs on the wall.
