I love quotes, don’t you? I find quick bites of positivity or quirk a bit uplifting — even the tongue in cheek quotes are fun because they often say what many of us lack the courage to. This is one I particular like this week because it’s so true, right!? I thought I’d share some quotes that I’ve been collecting over the past few weeks though I have tons more pinned here although some of those are definitely cheeky and not so G rated so viewer beware! These below are tame and good thoughts so enjoy them today as you go about your business…

Psst: My last post sharing quotes-as-artwork was in May of 2011 and you can catch that here if you missed it for more great art.

Hello everyone! After pulling together my 14 favorite things from Etsy, I thought I’d do a little round-up of over 30 prints for you from some of my favorite Etsy sellers since many are looking for affordable gifts right now. Prints from artists and photographers are a very sweet thing to send, especially for friends who live far away because prints are flat and light so they’re easy to mail. I love receiving art as a gift, whether it ends up in a frame or on the inspiration wall behind my desk, I always make a place for it. The best part is, whenever I see it I think of the special person who gave it to me and that’s always so nice. Here are some current favorites from Etsy that you may like – enjoy!
1 & 2: Maria Elina.
9. All prints from Little Brown Pen.
10 & 11. United Thread.
16. All prints from Lily Moon.
17 & 18: The Wheatfield.
19. Eye Poetry Photography and 20. Bett Norris.
21 & 22: Dear Pumpernickel.
23 & 24: Mister Hope.
25 & 26: Jennifer Davis.
Did you spot anything that you may like to send? Anything for yourself? I just love that David Bowie print (No.20)!

I always feel a surge of energy whenever I visit the website of Danish designer Rie Elise Larsen. Her work fills me with ideas and I always feel more creative whenever I visit her site for a browse. It’s fun to see what she’s up to and her current collection is just gorgeous. I love the zing of fresh green, neon pink, hot orange and the other crisp brights. I also like seeing pastels with graphic black and white. Perfection!
I found a video (below) of this talented lady showing how to make a fun ‘Julekugler’.
I love watching people make things, don’t you? I’m a huge fan of her work and a customer, I have some lamps, cloth cords and ornaments from her that I purchased at local shop Sommerfugl owned by my good friend Daniela. Isn’t Rie Elise Larsen such an inspiring creator? I think so!
