Win a Free Tee Shirt!!! Vote on your favorite Feisty Owl Studio ad for BUST Magazine

In order to give myself some incentive (i.e. a swift kick in the ass) to get my Etsy shop up to par, I bought an advertisement in one of my favorite magazines, BUST. 

My ad is a small one, about 2 by 2.75 inches and will be featured in print and online. So, keep in mind that the ad will look like it does below (small), not like the bigger version you get when you click on the image.


I’ve created 4 ads so far and I’m looking for opinions. Which one of these ads would make you most likely to check out my website?

Please vote on which one is your favorite. If you want to give me more detailed feedback about what you specifically like or don’t like, that’s great but make sure you also let me know which one is your favorite, as is.

In order to give you an incentive, I’ll randomly pick one person who votes to receive a FREE TEE SHIRT (or onesie*) of your choice!

You can leave your choice in a comment here on this blog post, send me an email or comment on facebook. You have until next Thursday, June 13th to vote and I’ll announce the tee shirt winner on June 14th.

Feisty Owl gets a friend

Feisty Owl has been a little lonely since her introduction into the world last year, so I’ve created a friend for her.

Introducing…. Feisty Penguin! aka Pete the Penguin when he’s not working.

I had a goal at the beginning of the year to introduce new products and new designs and so far I’ve been accomplishing that swimmingly. I’ve created:

greeting cards













tee shirts


I’ve come up with several new designs, including:


and kissing fish

just to name a few.

Anyway, feisty friends are the best. I’ve got some, how about you?
