The Anonymous Angel

I entered a giveaway recently on the Life Adorned blog. The giveaway was for a pack of cool Support Independent Artisans buttons. I didn’t win. Yet I did win! Confused? Well, the winner chose to share her prize & organised to have a button sent to each of the entrants & covered the associated postage costs to do this. How cool is that!?! The Anonymous Angel (who shall remain anonymous but I will reveal that she is a registered buyer on Etsy) is very humble & doesn’t believe what she did is a big deal. I think otherwise. It was such a sweet & thoughtful thing to do & so it was a big deal to me. Her kindness is very much appreciated. Also the Anonymous Angel being an Etsy buyer, is a true living testament to the very statement on those buttons!


So thanks Anonymous Angel & thanks to Life Adorned for having the giveaway in the first place. Check out the Life Adorned Blog for regular giveaways, artisan features & other fun things. Also swing by the Life Adorned Shop for an awesome variety of sweet hand crafted goodies!

I’m currently featured in this Treasury (ends early tomorrow morning) Woohoo! Thanks to ccvalenzo for including my Fern Photogram ACEO (now sold, yay!) amongst such a nice collection of ferny finds. Unfortunately I don’t know how to do those nifty screenshots so I’ve no picture of the Treasury to share. Thanks to my friend, the ever helpful, sweet-as-can-be Charmaine for trying to help me figure it out though. Sorry I’m such a bumbling idiot! Oh & exciting news! Charmaine has just opened her brand spankin' new Etsy shop called High Desert Supplies. The shop offers a range of both vintage & new supplies focussing on assemblage art. Some of the newly listed items look like fun to play with. Super swanky! Makes me want to try my hand at assemblage art!

This is wonderful.
Yes, I love individually crafted things - so much better than mass production - though obviously sometimes a little more expensive - but worth it.

I am constantly amazed by the generosity and thoughtfulness seen in the craft/art world. And it is lovely of you to highlight it too - it has brought a smile to my face on this dreary foggy morning.
Congrats on the treasury and sale to!!!

Congrats! I always think that the greatest joy is to giveaway, nothing like having to open a package with all the goodies inside :) I like giving away my junk..sort of clearing some stuff in the house.....hehehe :) BTW, hope you sells lots of your wonderful painting so you can make another trip to this region :)
