dear pinterest, thank you for inspiring me with this simple yet classic look and making me believe that you can never have too many baskets.
peace to your heart.
in case you are new around here, there's one thing you should know ... i love art and i love to share artists who i have fallen in love with and have in my home. susan, from when i was 20 , is one such artist. when i received two of her figurative drawings i knew i would have to share her etsy shop and let you in on my little secret.
susan's giclee prints are of her original works which date back to when she was a student in her 20's (hence the name of her shop). i love the vintage feel of her art and how as a student she was able to capture movement, life, and soul within each of her subjects. i've always been a fan of charcoal and ink drawings that trace the human form and her work truly captures the essence of people stripped down to their barest form.
today, susan is here to give one lucky reader the chance to win an 8x10 print of your choice! entering is simple. just visit susan's etsy shop here ... browse around ... and leave a comment below of the drawing you would love to have and why. that's it!
this giveaway is open to both my US and international friends and will end on 1/28/2015. a winner will be randomly selected and contacted via email (please leave in your comment) on Friday, 1/30. only one entry will be accepted per person.
good luck and thank you susan for being so generous and sharing your art with us in this handmade giveaway!
ps//to learn more about susan and her creative process, you can visit her on pinterest, her website and at the flower art place.

When Chandra and I first started talking about her hosting a giveaway on her blog for some of my jewelry, I was immediately ecstatic. I have worked with her before and so I knew the giveaway was going to be a huge hit. And it was! The outreach that my business experienced thru the giveaway surpassed my expectations by a ton! I gained a much wider following on social platforms like twitter, Instagram, and Facebook - media i I find integral to marketing my work. Chandra is easy to communicate with and very organized, so the giveaway went incredibly smoothly. I had alot of fun working to promote the giveaway, because I was so proud to be featured on a pretty blog like A Stylish Little Lady. Annie, Tarnished & True
I've worked with Chandra from A Stylish Little Lady several times now and its always been a pleasure. Not only is Chandra a really wonderful person, but she's also really professional, very efficient, methodical and she gets things done. I've worked with other bloggers before, but I've never had as good results as when I've work with Chandra. I've seen significant increases of followers on different social media sites and I've seen increased traffic in my online shop on Etsy. Chandra even helped me set up my very first banner ad. Back then, I had no idea how to do it, but she quickly helped me put something together from the pictures in my online shop. I look forward to continuing to work with her. Thank you Chandra!

hello and welcome back.
it's day 7 of the new year and seeing how i'm a tad bit late ... happy new year friends! i hope everyone is off to a good start and doing well. i decided to take a much needed break from this space as the holidays can get a little hectic and to be quite honest, i just wanted to chill out with the sweet boy for awhile (since he had been traveling for work a bit) ... have play dates with the dog ... watch mindless tv ... read ... go to movies ... dinners out ... brunch with friends ... family ... sleep ... and more sleep. oh and my favorite ... eat chips. and let's just say, i hope to continue on with these things in the new year. no goals here or resolutions. just to work hard ... play hard ... enjoy the simple things ... and unplug from time to time from this madness known as the internet (but not completely).
i will be around these parts with posts ... still trying to work out a schedule that will fit into everything else i have going on. and i will still add to my boards on pinterest and send out the occasional tweet. there will be more handmade giveaways coming your way ... things that have inspired me ... creative diy's and whatever else makes it's way into this space.
so happy new year friends and thanks a bunch for sticking around!
let's do this!
peace to your heart.
