I ran out a while back, and it's not that I was slow in getting new ones. I wanted a redesign, and so they had to wait until I could think out what I wanted on my card. It's definitely more organized then my original card (I think so anyways...), and a little more "professional" looking. My other card just seems all over the place compared to this one.
My old one also had a couple web addresses, and an e-mail address - which looking back on, I think was just too much. My main web page, www.artbyangie.ca, directs to all those places, so why not just put just that one?
I decided to still include my e-mail address (after much thought), with the idea, that if ever my website is down, or forever reason stops 'existing', then there's still a way to contact me. And I know, I know...I don't use my 'common' / slang name for my 'name'. I just like using my birth name, Angela, instead of my slang name, Angie for things like this. (artbyangela.ca just didn't have the same ring as artbyangie though hehe).
The card is also going to have rounded corners, I think. I love rounded corners. It will be going to the printers tomorrow, so I'll sleep about rounded corners, and see in the morning :)

These are perfect for all your Christmas gifts! The backs are blank to fill with warm Christmas thoughts and love, and they come with lovely ribbon - so they're ready to be attached to your Christmas packages.
These Christmas Tags are printed on lovely card stock and have beautiful rounded corners. They are sold in packs of 12 - 4 of each design. But larger quantities / custom orders of these tags can be requested :)
Merry (early) Christmas!
Ps. Don't forget to enter my contest! (until October 30th)

I'm not sure yet what I'm going to call it, the idea of the painting is still relatively new. I'll be thinking of something good. It should be in my artbyangie etsy store soon; I think I may be making Christmas stationery out of it, and listing the painting. Unless of course, you know you want it, then definitely send me a message :)

I found Etsy seller starrtutus in the Etsy chatrooms. She sells the most adorable tutu's. And not only that, but her photography skills to showcase her products are amazing. Every little girl needs a tutu! I only wish that it was completely socially acceptable to walk around in tutu's all the time as an adult; cause then I would - who wouldn't? The tutu shown is called Sugar Plum

If you look closely, you can see the cute mushroom that she has included with it. Makes me think that little fairies come out at night a 'party' in this little hangout.

I had collaborated with fellow Etsy seller, FaniSong, on some pendents, and she had sent me some samples of her beautiful work! Since, I can't in all honesty keep them all to myself (Just some hehe) - I must share some of these many pendents; I thought it would be a good idea to create a contest and give some away :)
And now, drumroll......please excuse my bad photography, I'm not used to taking pictures of pendents....
The lovely pendent up for grabs, created by FaniSong, is fused with an image of my Poppies painting, and hands on a 17" cord with ribbon. It also comes shipped in a little round tin box for safe keeping :)
A close up of the prize....
Now, for the instructions!!!

I'm just at school counting down minutes to go home and post these!

Pink Lemonade is a distinct summer taste, there's no question about that. KEcookies offers wonderfully scrumptious looking pink lemonade cookies. They're like sunshine in a cookie! Perfect for a dull, winter day!
KEcookies also has orange pumpkin cookies, that are perfect for the fall season! And are a lovely vibrant orange colour.
Despite all this, I don't want anyone to think I'm anti-winter. I love the leaves changing in the fall, and I love playing in the snow in the winter (I'm becoming more and more of an avid snowboarder :) ... but I do like summer a lot... until next year summer!

This bag is the perfect size for all my textbooks and lunch for school. I always have the hardest time finding a bag that is large enough for it all, but stylish at the same time. So usually, I just opt for my schoolbag - which honestly, is far from cute.
The bonus, is that this bag is reversible, so I can change it as easily as flipping it inside out as my moods change!
I hope that everyone's holidays are filled with wonderful Thanksgiving goodies and family love!

Citron Scarf - so bright and cheery for a dull winter day.
Wild Irises Scarf - I love greens, and this scarf incorporates them beautifully without making them too overwhelming.Soft Turquoise Scarflette - is perfect for anyone who isn't fond of longer scarfs. And those pearls look precious in their sea of blue yearn.

For those who flourish like a beautiful crimson tree in the world both inside and out.
New painting will be posted in a few :)
Now I can drive by myself, and I get another 5 years to get my final licence, G. Let's hope I don't wait for the end again...

I just posted this painting in my ArtbyAngie Etsy store yesterday late in the evening. I love bubble baths, and I especially love them when it's been a not-so-happy-go-lucky sort of day. Bubbles have the ability to wash away all the bad things, and leave a happy shiny feeling inside. They also leave you feeling fabulous!
On the brief topic of bubble baths, I just wanted to share bath bombs that I purchased yesterday from a Canadian soaper: GreenfieldSoaps. I got some great fragrances: cucumber-melon, cranberry, green tea and mango twist. I can't wait to get them, and since the seller is in Ontario too...it should be sometime this week :D

It's my textbooks that I need my bookplates for. I bring them to class, they get left here - used there - passed around....and then in the end, no one knows whose book is whose, and someone possibly walks out with ones (very expensive) textbook. So, I thought some lovely bookplates would be better then just scrawling my name on them. It also makes boring books seem a tad cuter, which is always a plus!
I've always been a huge fan of tutlepapers work. These bookplates are so lovely, and the paper chosen is gorgeous (I love kraft paper pieces!). They are very classy and elegant bookplates.
Theblackapple is a wonderful artist who I've admired since coming to Etsy, but I never knew what to get from her - I didn't know where I would put one of her prints, and I didn't want to give her postcards away hehe. But, I've just ordered some of her bookplates for my textbooks, so soon I will own one of her pieces! (15 to be exact!). They'll look perfect in my textbooks and spruce them up!
I love this bookplate! I came across it in my search, and who doesn't like cute humor? If I found a book with this bookplate in it, it would make me chuckle and make my day. Please, if someone near where I live is reading this...buy this bookplate and loose your book, so that I can find it and see. Please.
There are so many more lovely bookplates on Etsy - so many to choose from! Go out there, find ones that suit you, and give your books some love!

My inspiration for the tree. Firstly, it was suggested that I create a wishing tree with some pink in it. After thinking about it, I realized that little pink specks are so much like fairy dust!
