Pocket Print Day

It's Pocket Print Day in Artsyville! These colorful new pieces of Artsyville love are 4" square, super durable, super colorful, super thick (close to chipboard weight), and super affordable -- just $4 each

Each Pocket Print is gift ready, prettily packaged with a colorful backing. There are a handful of Artsyville favorites in the collection, including One Marvelous Mama for Mother's Day and Teach What You Love for end-of-year teacher gifts. There are also a bunch of fresh new designs, and more are on the way! 

Today (April 24), for every four Pocket Prints you order, you'll get one of your choice for free. (If you buy eight, you'll get two free Pocket Prints, and so on.) No code needed, but please tell me which extra Pocket Print(s) you would like in the notes to Artsyville at checkout. 

You can see all of the new Pocket Prints here!

Since I'm posting this a bit late in the day, if you're coming to the shop through the blog, I'll be happy to extend the Pocket Print bonus for you through Wednesday, April 25th. 😀 

Wishing you a colorful week,

Free Shipping + New Mini Tiles + Cutie Pies!

💕 Happy Friday from Artsyville! 💕

Here's the short version: new stuff! Hello Spring Mini Tiles, Coffee Love Mini Tiles, the sweetest miniature two-toned Cutie Pie greeting cards, and free shipping this weekend (details below)!

Here's the motormouth version: New goods are hatching all over Artsyville right now... Mother Nature dumped another surprise foot of snow on us on the first day of spring (!) so I had to draw my own garden! Here is the Hello Spring collection of Mini Tiles. I couldn't be happier with these tiny little blooms. 🌷

Tiny! Caffeinated! Prints! This Coffee Love collection was months in the making, but it was worth the dozens (probably hundreds) of cups it took for me to finish this set. 

also new... Cutie Pies! I was playing around with some fun two-toned paper and they just kind of happened. Cutie Pies are teeny, tiny bite sized cards (one inch square) that will keep your greetings short and sweet. They are just big enough to say hi, I love you, you're awesome, go for it, or whatever that one important message might be. Each pack comes with 30 Cutie Pies in assorted colors.

 I am also putting a handful of Cutie Pies in each new RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Pack. Your responses to the RAK Packs blew me away & I love the stories that people are telling me. Thank you for sharing.

Finally...  I'm offering free shipping in the Artsyville shop within the US all weekend long! Select "Apply Shop Coupon Codes" from your cart and enter FREESHIPPING to take the shipping charges off the order before you check out. Valid through this Monday, April 2.

That's it from the Art Pit!

Wishing you a colorful & creative Easter/Passover/weekend,

RAK Packs, Rainbows, Tiny Compliments & a Kindness Sale!

Hello, creative friends...just stopping by to share some some happy new goodies in the shop and a quickie sale!

A few weeks ago I started sketching out little compliments to give to friends, and boom! they quickly grew into a new tile collection. Sometimes my favorite pieces come from hopping on the creative magic carpet and seeing where it goes...

The same thing happened from a tiny doodle that suddenly turned into a set of colorful rainbows. 🌈

The newest addition that I'm most excited about: Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Packs! These were inspired by two friends who are always leaving happy things in public for others to find. 

Each RAK Pack is stuffed with a bright jumble of over 50 pieces of Artsyville love (Permission Tickets, Happy Heart Mini Tiles, Rainbow Mini Tiles, You Are Awesome Mini Tiles, and other colorful pieces) that you can use to put a boost into someone else's day. I've been scattering these colorful bits in public places around North Jersey and New York City in between Nor'easters. I enjoy doing this because it allows me to be kind and a bit subversive at the same time. 😀

And now, a quickie sale! 

Use the coupon code KINDNESS on the Etsy checkout page to take 20% off the new tiles, RAK Packs and everything else in the shop. One day only, March 12! (If you happen to be browsing this the night of March 11, you might find that I've activated the coupon code a bit early... wink wink!) 

One last thing -- the new coffee, creativity and springtime mini tiles are nearly at the finish line! They will be in the shop later this month, provided I don't go chasing other creative larks in the meantime. Thank you to all who have sent me fantastic suggestions for new mini tile collection themes! I am obsessed with making these itty bitty pieces of art, & have so many sketches in progress that I need a Mini Tile Manager to keep me from starting any more until I finish the ones I'm working on.

That's it from the Art Pit for now...

Wishing you a colorful and creative day,
