Fieryeyed Studio (25% off Blog Banners in May!)

I must share a gem that you’ll love, especially with so many seeking that special someone to create a box ad or banner for your blog without charging a fortune and who is willing to take on small jobs. Let me tell you about Fieryeyed Studio.

A decor8 reader, sponsor, blog pal, and talented designer, Jenifer Altman launched her design studio less than a year ago alongside her collection of jewelry and paper. Jenifer designs branding/logos for indie businesses and banners for the modern blogger, “My design aesthetic plays strongly into the graphics I create, however, my primary goal is to create something that not only my client?s customers will connect to, but something that reflects the heart and soul of the woman behind the indie business.”

As a small business owner herself, Jenifer instantly connects with her customers and knows what it takes to help them get off the ground. Jenifer keeps her prices affordable too, “I want woman to have the opportunity to have their business successfully and smartly branded while being able to still afford all the start-up costs of running a small business.” You can contact Jenifer via her website or email her at custom AT fieryeyed DOT com

SPECIAL FOR MAY: Take 25% off blog banners for new customers. Please mention decor8 when you write to Jenifer. Thanks!

Psst: She’s a blogger, too. Click here.

Artsy Walls: Kayte from Love Forever

Kayte from the Love Forever blog wants to share her budding collection of paint-by-numbers in her living room. Is this fun, or what?

“It’s a work in progress, but the goal is to have the paint-by-numbers all built up on the far side of the wall so it looks like a big explosion. I thought it would be a cool way to hang art so the art is valued more for the collective installation over the single piece. I love repetitions of things!” – Kayte

Artsy Walls: Laura from Orange Beautiful

More art on walls to share today, this time it’s the space of fellow blogger, Laura from the Orange Beautiful blog. Thank you for taking the time to email me Laura, and to go the extra mile by posting about it on your own blog to inspire your readers. It’s great to see everyone sharing ideas and enjoying the unique, personal space that they call home.

“Here is my favorite art wall, that contains (among other things) a screenprint purchased in Tokyo, silhouettes of me and my husband, a picture from a photo booth taken in France (reminds me of Amelie!) and an original painting my sister-in-law gave us. All the frames are from either Ikea or Target” – Laura.
