www.whimsygraphicdesigns.etsy.com


Whimsy Graphic Designs was a little adventure Rebecca (the designer) decided to explore after a long, boring, snowed in weekend.  She put the skills she learned while earning her Accessory Design degree (you can find her handbags at prettygirlhandbags.etsy.com) to great use by creating one of a kind/customizable graphics for Etsy (and non-Etsy) members!  Whimsy Designs creates unique, fun graphics at an affordable price.  Each design is created with the buyers shop or design need in mind, and Rebecca works until her clients absolutely love it. 


Besides creating just graphics for your Etsy shop, Rebecca also creates graphics for your websites, other online selling ventures, trade shows, craft fairs, and much more!  Have your graphic design needs met in this little graphic shop on Etsy. 


Giveaway Item: custom banner/avatar set for your blog or etsy shop (I know from first hand experience how awesome Rebecca is, she designed my banner, avatar, business cards and it was a pleasure)










5. Jennuine Candles

www.jennuinecandles.etsy.com

By day, Jenn is an Occupational Therapist. She works with the older adult population in an assisted living/memory care environment. Although she has many opportunities to help people maintain a higher quality of life, she sometimes needs an escape from her  stressful career. She has always had an interest in homemade hobbies and has  tried several over the past years, but it wasn't until she found candle making that she found the perfect hobby. 

Initially, Jenn started out with the idea of making candles for her home and as gifts for family and friends - after all, who doesn't like candles, especially candles that have a scent that lasts from first light to the last light? Once she and her husband took their candles to work their coworkers loved the candles and started ordering them. She had finally found "her hobby"; one that she could enjoy, one that she could find pleasure in, one that she could use to escape, yet one that she could share with others... and that is how jennuinecandles was born.

Giveaway Item (1 winner)

9 ounce Palm Wax candle in your choice of scent and color

Giveaway item (1 winner): a pair of tiny sparkly flower earrings.  With about a centimetre of dangle, these are lightweight enough to forget about, but long enough to be eyecatching.
