Illustrator Amy Blackwell

I was thinking this morning that I should occassionally spotlight sellers over at Folksy for readers based in the UK and Europe. Today I’d like to share with you one that I really like, Illustrator Amy Blackwell, whom I featured this morning over at Real Simple.

So sweet!

Pancake Meow

I was reading my tweets after lunch today and one of my contacts, myblueberrynight from Geralyn Design, sent me a link to online shop Pancake Meow. I love Twitter, I can receive updates and links from you, friends of decor8, all day long. Very exciting.

Anyway Pancake Meow is filled with kawaii finds and the prints by shop owner Leslie Dallion are especially cute. I love her Decole and Cram Cream imports from Japan too. Leslie, who is a miniature dessert artist, also sews, draws, makes music with her band called The Lolligags, and designs digital prints. She’s one hot little number.

Amy Kligman Art

I wrote about artist and designer Amy Kligman today over at Real Simple, don’t miss it, it’s worth checking out for sure. You can learn all about Amy here.

Sadly BlueFlip Art, where Amy sold prints at one time, closed up shop and I’m not sure where you can order prints of her work currently. Amy if you are reading, please let us know and if you don’t sell them online consider opening a shop. Please, your work is tops.

Happy Friday everyone! I’ll be back in a moment with a travel post from Iceland and an interview with a top photographer… stay tuned.

PDF Fun with Wren & Chickadee

Affordable and fun! I love the idea of printing out a PDF file to create your own gift tags, labels, cards, and more. Smart crafty girl Ez from Wren & Chickadee just launched this PDF idea in her shop and I think it could be the start of a potential trend on Etsy. It’s a really clever idea especially in this economy. What do you think?

The balloon animals are my favorite PDF and only $6, a great affordable option for stationery lovers. Way to go Ez!
