A few weeks ago I received an email from Barry Friedland, the owner of Thumbtack Press, asking if I would be interested in blogging about his website. I have to be honest and admit that I usually say no to such requests, but I said yes this time. And that's because I started browsing through the various art prints available on Thumbtack Press and genuinely liked them. I've picked out a few of my favourites here. I also like the concept behind Thumbtack Press: affordable original art. There should definitely be more of that around, and I'm wholeheartedly at ease with endorsing such a cool venture.
While I'm on the subject of art, my good friend Sofia is having a clearance sale on her Etsy shop, so do visit and see if there's anything you like. Sofia once sent me one of her crochet necklaces and they're absolutely beautiful. I hope it's a successful sale Sofia!
