EtsyInsprired #77 ~ United Thread

>> Saturday, February 27, 2010

This week's EtsyInspired shop is United Thread. This is a very cool store. They only sell original art, no prints. Each piece is signed and dated. They have drawings and watercolor paintings. All the art is sold on heavy weight archival watercolor paper. They have a wide selection of nature inspired art. Everything from animals (like owls and whale) to plants (like oxtails and ferns) to "floating farms." The colors are very subtle and earthy. The pieces so an interesting sense of whimsy to them. All drawings are shipped in a protective sleeve and have a sturdy back or envelope for support.

This week, United Thread is offering up a print valued at up to $25 of the winner's choice. Just pick any item in the United Thread shop to be inspired by. Make any creation that you would like and link it to the THIS POST using Mr Linky and you will be entered in a random drawing to win. Please link your creation by Friday March 5th by noon Pacific time. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC77.

This week's sponsor is Sakura of America. How lucky are we?!? They make an amazing line of pens. They have traditional gel pens, Glaze pens (which leave a nice sheen on the items), and Souffle pens (which have a matte finish and bump up slightly.) They also make the Quickie Glue pen which lets you do things like write and then coat it in glitter. It writes very finely. There are TONS of other products like stickers, erasers, adhesives and many others made from Sakura. Check them out!
Prize pack includes: [*Gelly Roll Stardust Pens, 6 (]
[*Quickie Glue (]
[*Gelly Roll Metallic pens, 3 (]
[*Sticklers, including 3 Glaze 3-D pens (

EtsyInspired #75 ~ Spin Designs

>> Friday, February 12, 2010

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Spin Designs. They offer two really amazing products in their shop. Now I normally focus on shops with ONE kind of product but since this shop does both so well, I decided it was ok. First off, they have beautiful jewelry. Some of it is super sculptured looking and graphic and some of it is just plain fun (like the owl.) The designs are unique and lovely. The second thing they offer is AMAZING mobiles! They are made out of quality mat-board and are just exquisite! I've never seen anything like them! I love the fact that they are large too! It's taking the whole decor thing to a whole different level and I really like that. Again, they offer everything from elegant to darling and fun.
To play along with our challenge, all you have to do is go to theSpin Designs shop and pick any item to be inspired by. Make your creation and post a link to it on the EtsyInspired #75 post on theEtsyInspired blog by next Friday, Feb 19 by noon Pacific time. Everyone will be entered into a random drawing to win. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC75. And PLEASE remember to give credit to the shop that you found your inspiration from.

What do you win? This week's sponsor is Doodle Dragon Studios aka Dustin Pike. Dustin is known for his super cute digi stamps. He works for lots of different stamp companies. This week's prize is a $10 store credit to Doodle Dragon Studios.
