Something Blue

3 Feb

Etsy shop, Something Blue, tout themselves as wedding and event invitations with a twist — but they’ve gone beyond invites to posters that tell a story.  I love these and what a great wedding gift these would make.  I’ve been really impressed, of late, by type-driven posters — there are a lot of great ones out there and they’re oh so simple which is nice if, you’re someone like me who gets easily bored with poster art.  And just a side note — this first poster must have been a sample version because, I don’t know about you, but I NEVER seem to sit next to anyone lustworthy on planes.  Usually quite the opposite.

Check out Something Blue’s etsy shop at the link below — really creative invites for you next big event as well.




Nella Designs

I’m diggin’ on Nella Designs.  She has fantastic papercraft but my favorites are the custom silhouette posters she does (I know – surprise, surprise – right?).

Send in your photo and text and she’ll whip up one of these little numbers. So cute. So hip.

There are a lot of other great posters, cards, and stationery on the site.










Affordable Art

I’ve written before about art that I’ve found on Etsy — all fairly reasonable in cost in my humble opinion.  Here’s another great resource if you’re looking for something to bring a bit of sparkle to your walls but can’t afford to splash the cash of original artwork:  20 x 200  http://www.20×200.com/ 

As it says on the site:  “As we see it, there are a lot of people out there who want to sell their art and a lot of people who’d like to buy it. They just have a hard time finding each other. The internet is the perfect place to bring those people together, and we’re exactly the right people to make it happen. We’re passionate about art and the internet at 20×200. We’re really excited about creating a place where almost any art lover can be an art collector.”

There are buckets of choices from typography posters, to collages, to photography.  Here are just a few that I thought were fun…
