Etsy Take Five Tuesday: Fresh Prints for Spring!

March 29, 2011

It’s time for fresh prints today that I’ve pulled together from Etsy sellers… And by the way, I’m not sure how it is in your part of the world but here it’s a fantastic sunny day and I’m feeling very Spring-like! It will be 70 this weekend, which is somewhat tropical for this time of year here, so I plan to go out and enjoy the warm air and sunshine at some flea markets. As for this week though, I’m not going to see the light of day except through my office windows because I’m working non-stop. I’ll tell you more about that in my next post. But first, it’s Etsy time! Yay! Here are some delicious prints from Etsy sellers this week that I’m liking, what do you think? These are all very springy aren’t they?

One Little Bird Studio in Greece wrote to me weeks ago but I’ve been a bit behind on email since I taught a class that wrapped up last night. I’m finally catching up on emails and One Little Bird prints really stood out as lovely!

Sarah Ahearn is an artist living in Massachusetts and soon-to-be author of an creativity and art journaling how-to book, Painted Pages, that I can’t wait to buy and read because I want to support Sarah – she’s a sweetheart and we’ve known each other for what seems like forever, at least in internet years! I’ve not talked about her art in a while so I thought to include her today in my etsy round-up. Love ya Sarah and good luck with your first book, it’s going to fly off of the shelves!
