New items up in the Etsy Shoppe!

I've put up some new items in Nest Feathers Paperie. If you're like me, in times past when I needed a card for a special occasion, I am usually scrambling at the last minute and running out to the store, standing there looking forever for just the perfect one I think my friend or loved one will adore. Well, I've come up with a solution for that. Card sets. Handmade cards with attention paid to every detail all neatly packaged and just waiting for you. No more last minute scrambles. :) Plus, if you'll let me know your favorite colors, images and even the occasions you'd like in the mix, I can make a custom reserved listing just for you. ♥ You will not be disappointed. Neither will your friends. Yeah, you'll get to be the cool friend who always sends the pretty cards. lol

Meet Rian

Have you ever been completely captivated by a piece of art you happened to see? I haven’t had that experience often in life, but I suddenly found myself like this last week when I came across the incredible works of Rian. She lives in the southern part of the Netherlands (in the province of Noord-Brabant to be more specific). Thanks to the amazing land of cyberspace, we have the privilege of meeting amazing talent like this from far flung corners of the globe. It’s really quite amazing, isn’t it? She calls her blog Freubel’s Art Page because freubel means something like fiddle in English. She took on that name because she likes to ‘fiddle’ with graphics on her computer until they result in something rather nice to look at. In time, she say 'her fiddlings’ have become more of a craft in photoshopping and creating Digital Artworks in various styles such as vintage-retro, mixed-media, stamping and old postcards. She has a wide range of style preferences, as you may well see on her site. From her well endowed ladies to the vintage images of children that I fell in love with, you’re sure to find something to inspire you. I especially love her scenery pieces. Some of them make me laugh out loud. Some of them you have to study for awhile to catch every special detail she's put into them. She has an incredible amount of free art she so generously allows others to download. She also has a store front full of yumminess that you’ll find thru the link on her blog, and on my sidebar as well. She has clip art, banners and headers for blogs, and really too much to mention. Make yourself a cup of tea, pull up a comfy chair and go browsing. :) I’m so honored she allowed me to showcase her art in the lovely blog header you see on my blog. Thank you Rian. You have an amazing eye and amazing talent, and a delightful sense of humor.
