Button Cards..Selling Now in my Etsy Site

My husband Gary started posting the button cards that are for sale on my Etsy site last night and 3 of them are already sold. Thanks so much Christine Kenney! The pieces she bought are the last three before the final button card which is the one button card I kept for myself. I am including them so everyone can see them. I am hoping these will sell and if so I plan to make more to sell hopefully before the holidays.

Again my Etsy site is https://www.etsy.com/shop/lindasolovic. The cards are $15.00 each.

Hope you all like them. It is so much fun to make little pieces of art.

What was in those packages?

A while back on Facebook and instagram I posted the following picture.


All this little packages were gifts for my friend Joyce for her 60th birthday. I made her 60 tiny pieces of artwork. Each package contained 10 images. I did a series of 10 images for each of her ten years on this planet. And each of the series were a different media and theme.

I have loads of fun making these...I put no pressure on myself and I just did what I wanted to do. Joyce is a textile artist and makes art quilts so I knew the theme of making and sewing would be part of the images I made.

So here is the first set. I have loads of buttons in my studio and I remembered I had saved some vintage button cards. I did a series of flower images on the button cards using what else... embroidery and buttons. She loved them. And I had so much fun making them that I decided to make to sell in my Etsy just in time for holiday shopping. https://www.etsy.com/shop/lindasolovic  The button cards will sell for $15 and should be up for sale tomorrow in the shop. Here are the flower button cards I did for Joyce. Tomorrow I will post the Etsy button cards that are going to be for sale

Oh and by the way there are only eight cards. I changed two of them at the last minute and forgot to take a pic of them.

Would you like to see a Linda design on an iPhone case?

I was at the store the other day looking for a case for my new iPhone. Lot’s of cases out there to buy, but I just couldn’t find one that spoke to me. 

When I returned home, case-less, I talked to my husband, Gary, about my dilemma. Gary said he thought my art would be perfect for iPhone cases. I must admit, I agree. Gary then spent the next hour in his studio mocking up iPhone case designs using my artwork. They are so cute! I thought I would share with you the results.

I’m Back, Again!

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I last posted a blog. I’m sorry for the delay, and I promise to be much better about blogging.

I thought in my first return blog, I would talk about a new product I’ve designed, that is out in the market place. I designed some art poles for gardens. These art poles were done for a really great client, Studio M, a division of Magnet Works. You can check out my poles and other poles at the Magnet Works website, http://www.magnetworks.com/p-3748-wonderful-world-pole-grdn-s3-asst.aspx?EID=1219&EN=Category#.VDWQ00vqVFw 

Earlier this summer I was excited when I received my samples. There are 3 poles sizes, 3', 4' and 5' tall. They are super cute. I had my very talented daughter, Anna Karpinski, document me opening up the box and installing the art poles. Check out the images below and thanks for visiting my blog.
