A Giveaway - from my Etsy shop (

Hi everyone - did you know that I have an Etsy shop? I've had it before I started blogging, and it offers more of my graphic and lettering art (though I have added a few of my watercolors). I have neglected the shop a bit but recently Brandy, at, kindly asked if I'd like to participate in an opportunity over at her blog and so please check out my little giveaway here. The giveaway ends on 7/2 at 11:59pm (CDT) (Oklahoma, USA) and is open worldwide. Brandy will mail the handlettered love tree print to the winner. Please check out all of the other fun giveaways she has going on..she is one busy, busy lady! Thanks, Brandy for such a lovely write-up and review, and THANKS to all of my bloggin' buddies, and to those who may be's great you've stopped by!

  2. Wow! Look at your beautiful calligraphy and letter art. You just keep on surprising me. Oh by the way. I read the Bella's comment about back ups. I just loaded carbonite's 15 day trial. Chances are I will purchase it after the free trial.

  3. Ah, so I see you're a master of typography as well?? Now, aren't we a pool of talents? Hehehe... Really, those designs are wonderful, Shirley! I'm so glad I found this out about you. :)) oxx

  9. Awwwwwwwww, Shirley!!!! What a great shop! You have some adorable illustrations in there, and I love the diversity. Beautiful! This tree is invigorating and refreshing. I love it! You betcha bottom dollar I'll be entering the giveaway. :)

    Oh, by the way. I have two Time Machine units, and the other one is working just perfectly after two years of running. I think the one unit burned out from overheating. I used to have the units stacked, but they get pretty darn hot, so....stacking is a big no no.

  11. I'd love to win this - if I'm not too late - can't work out the time difference!
