Applecheeks is clebrating for 25 days of 25,000 Applecheeks fans on their Facebook page and I am sponsoring their 20th day…
Today on the Applecheeks blog you can enter to win two beautiful fine art prints of mine, With Child and ABC valued at $60. Both are limited edition fine art prints. They are numbered, signed and titled and will arrive with certificates of authenticity. This contest closes at midnight tonight.
And from today, March 20 to March 27 I am offering 25% off all purchases in my Etsy Shop. Simply use the code APPLECHEEKS during checkout.
I’ve been using Applecheeks cloth diapers on my daughter since she was very tiny weighing in at about 7lbs. She was too tiny to use them at first as she arrived early and only weighed 5lbs 5oz. She weighs over 17lbs and is fitting into their size 2 diapers now. I couldn’t imagine using disposables. I have about 24 diapers in total. Here Willow is at about 8 lbs in both photos with her Applecheeks.
Anyhow, go and support this fantastic Canadian Cloth Diapering Company, win some great Jessica Doyle art or purchase some to hang on the wall in your home, office or baby nursery.
UPDATE – Contest is closed. Winner of the calendar is Megan Warren! Thanks to everyone for the support this year.
This year I will be offering two coupons that can be used in my art shop and two giveaways for Black Friday.
I am 27 sales away from reaching 2000 sales and that in itself is pretty darn cool. Once 2000 sales are reached all customers will be entered into a draw for a $50.00 gift card to the shop.
Spend $100 or more and get 40% off with this code “BLACK40″, otherwise use this code, “BLACK25″ and get 25% off your purchase before shipping charges. This is a great way to get that original art you or a loved one has been eyeing.

So the deck located on the side of my house is about to fall off. It is by no means secure. The backyard deck, thankfully can happily live through another summer before needing to be replaced, although it is in need of repair too.
I got to thinking about how I can earn the money I need to replace this side deck and staircase that my tenants use to enter and exit the house and thought about running a sale on matted prints. I tend to run two sales per year; once during Springtime and later in early Fall, and then again sometimes I don’t.
This is how I make my living, and at the moment, although my art sales are steady, I do not have any room to maneuver after having recently paid my property taxes in full. And what do people do when they need more money… well they put in overtime to earn the money that they need and for me, that means running a sale.
The matted art prints measure 8×10 inches and will fit directly into a standard sized frame which can be purchased at your local department store. Each archival print is matted and backed with acid free materials.
These matted prints make wonderful wedding, birthday or shower gifts. And they do look striking hanging in your bathroom, on your kids bedroom wall or on a living room shelf or mantle.
This Studio Special will run from Tuesday, June 1 to Tuesday, June 8, 2010 in my Etsy Art Shop. The matted prints are regularly priced at $25 each and are on special for $18. Thank you!
And do leave a comment on this blog post and I’ll enter you in a draw for two of the matted prints. I’ll draw the winner on June 9, 2010.
Update – comments are now closed. I will announce the winner of the four pack of Valentine’s on Tuesday! xoxo
Over the last week I have been working on a couple of new designs for Valentine’s Cards. And they are completed and listed in the shop now. The first is called Hearts on Strings and the latter is entitled The Flamboyant Heart.
Each set contains six matching greeting cards and six envelopes. Each card measures 4.25 by 5.5 inches (10,5cm by 14cm). They are blank inside so that you can write your own special greeting.
Leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win a set of four greeting cards. The set contains two Flamboyant Heart’s and two Hearts on Strings cards. This set of four greeting cards were my test prints until I got the colours corrected. Rest assured they are still cute as ever! I’ll draw the winner on Monday night.
And if you really want to make a big statement with the one you love, don’t forget that I create Tickled Pink Hearts in miniature greeting card sets of eight as posted earlier. These little sets although tiny take me longer to produce than their larger cousins.
Each set of Valentine’s themed cards are listed in the Valentines 2010 Section of my shop along with some other items I feel would make beautiful gifts for Valentine’s Day to the ones you love. Order early as my supplies of each item is limited and then there is that shipping part to! I want them to arrive on time for gift giving.
