My First Feature Friday!

So if you've been paying attention this week I started something called "Feature Friday." Read the previous post to get the jist. Today I am happy to announce my first winner out of 7 entries! Meet Charlotte of BizzieLizzie Creations. Charlotte and I have been Fritters (Twitter Friends) for a bit now and I am so happy to introduce you to the amazing artisan that she is. She has over 35 years of experience as a seamstress and man, does it show! Her bags are stunning! Great fabric and color choices and great styles. She even makes the most adorable check book wallets! My favorite ones are shown above. Just click on the pictures and the link will take you directly to her shop. And have a look around - she has so much more to offer. I had to limit myself to four or else I would be here all day! Drop her a line, tell her you heard about her from me and that will REALLY please her. Oh, and if you want to keep up with the lovely Charlotte here is where you can find her:

Why didn't I think of this before??

Ok so I noticed this trend with other artisans and cross-promoting with other artisans and doing features on their blogs so I thought I'd give it a shot. I love promoting my fellow artist's and it certainly is a win-win situation! So here it goes. Fridays will be Feature Fridays on my blog. I am starting this week so if you want to enter just Fan my Facebook page: facebook/com/ecdesigns and add a link to your etsy or artfire shop, blog, fan page, whatever. I will pick one person randomly to feature on Friday. I will tweet about it, FB about it and blog about it! LOTS of chances to be viewed by lots of new people. I have 993 followers on Twitter right now and 263 fans on Facebook as I post this - so lots of opportunity there! All I ask is that you pay it forward! We could all use a little help in getting our name/product/shops out there - so let's help each other out! Just remember to get your entries to me by Friday October 30th at Noon EST. Good luck everybody! Click here ---> to enter!

Wild Things!

I don't need to remind all you Maurice Sendak fans that Where the Wild Things Are is opening this weekend - Friday October 16th to be exact. But did you all know about this Urban Outfitters WTWTA Shop?? I can't wait to take Sophie to see the movie! It is one of her favorite stories, as well as mine. I am so glad I can share a little piece of my childhood with her. These are a few of my favorite things from the shop:

Everything you see here can be purchased from the Where the Wild Things Are Shop.
