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.

* sorry the onesies only come in baby sizes, so if you were looking for an adult onesie…..ummm, yeah.


I’ve been Blogged and a Really Cute Kitten

My Chinese Plum Tree mug was featured in the Nest and Soar blog this week, yay!

You can check it, and lots of other cool stuff out here in her Top 10 Tuesday post. I’m partial to the fiber brooch, the paper art and the green scarf that are also featured.

This cute kitten at the end of the post is just the icing on the cake!

Copied from her blog, here is more about Georgianne Holland, the woman behind Nest and Soar:

“As a folk artist living in Colorado, I work primarily with wool. I am reinvigorated in my studio! I love the soft energy of birds and gliding, so that’s why I call my work Nestle And Soar. Organic elements always find a way into my art. When folks buy my art, I ask the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree in their honor. I really do love trees and birds! I appreciate your visit and I look forward to hearing from you.”

Here’s my favorite!

You can check out more of Georgianne’s super cool art at the Nestle and Soar Etsy Shop or the Nestle and Soar Website.

Magnificent Mural

I am always amazed by well done murals and street art. Here is an owl that I think is particularly magnificent:

I found this photo through a blog post on My Owl Barn.

This mural was done by Belgian street artist, ROA. You can find more of his pieces here at Street Art Belgium, like these cool turtles:
