I have to thank Poppytalk blog for finding the fun jewelry and wall decor from Nea. I absolutely adore her sweet embroidered pieces to decorate your walls…framed in vintage embroidery hoops. Sweet! She sells her goods in her Etsy shop…check them out!

Rebecca Peragine is the owner of Print Pattern Paper. It’s an online shop selling just that…art, printed bags, and notecard sets. Really cute stuff! She donates a portion of her profits from selected prints {like the milagro print above} to PEACE, a non-profit organization benefiting communities in the Punta de Mita region of Mexico. Rebecca is actively involved in a women’s co-op called Manos Unidos {based in Mexico as well}. She uses her artistic talent and business skills to provide disadvantaged women with a trade. Very cool in my book.

She is also donating a cute set of notecards {see below} to a lucky reader. I just love these giveaways! Here’s how to enter {you know the drill}: Visit Print Pattern Paper, check out all of her goods, and leave a comment to this post letting me know which one you like the best {ok, if you can’t decide just one…you can tell me more}. I will randomly choose a winner on Thursday, December 18th at noon. So, leave your comments before Friday the 18th at 11am {Chicago time}. Only one entry per household please. Good luck!

I love everything about the sweet artwork by Valentina Design. Great swirls, fun colors and quite possibly the cutest birds ever! She has prints as well as originals in her shop {my very fave is the green one above}…oh, and she has cards too!

I’m thrilled to offer her cute 2009 owl calendar {above} to a random reader. How adorable is that?!! Here’s the deal {it’s the same rules as the previous contest}: Visit Valentina Design, check out all of her sweet artwork, and leave a comment to this post letting me know which one is your favorite. I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, December 5th at noon. So, leave your comments before Friday the 5th at 11am {Chicago time}. Only one entry per household please. Good luck!

I love Michele Maule’s artwork. My very favorites are the typewriters {I have a bit of a thing with old typewriters}. I love her colors, the mixed media pieces and her self portrait series. Love love! She has a really cool site too…with a little Sigur Ros playing as you flip through her portfolio {perfect music to art pairing, if you ask me}. You can buy her work on her Etsy shop. You can’t beat being able to buy a piece of original art starting at $50. Take down one of those posters on your wall, and put up something unique.

nonpareil’s first giveaway!!

I’m really excited to feature 3cd Kid Stuff! They are a Chicago based design firm with a new etsy shop filled with fun prints for kid’s rooms. I love the sketchy quality of their animals…filled with character. Adorable!!

They have generously donated a signed Alphabet Letters print for me to give away to one lucky reader {see below…but the frame is NOT included…it’s just the print} . Here’s how you win: Visit 3cd Kid Stuff, check out all of their sweet prints, and leave a comment here letting me know which is your favorite. Mine is that adorable yellow bird {above}. I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, November 14th at noon. So, leave your comments before Friday the 14th at 11am {Chicago time}. Good luck!
