Crazy Bliss Give Away Aug 15-29

AND THE WINNER IS!


TILT
CONGRATULATIONS!!




Crazy Bliss is a wonderful card shop!! All the cards, invitations, tags, prints & posters are original. They have all been designed by Jennifer Reid who is from Ottawa Ontario, Canada! The give away prize that Jennifer's supplying, is a set of 5 cards!! But first - lets find out more about Jennifer her shop.




How did you decide on your shop name? My shop's name is Crazy Bliss which came from how I originally described my illustration style. When did you start crafting/drawing?
I've been crafting most of my life and eventually developed the crazy bliss illustration style in 2004. My mom recognized a creative drive in me when I was a toddler and provided me with what ever supplies we could find for projects. I was lucky enough to have a very well stocked art room in high school and was able to sample most media readily available. When I need a break from painting, I usually dabble in some form of mixed media.






Are there other crafts you would like to try?
I would really like to try the metal clays. I'd also like to improve my woodworking skills. What or who inspires you? I get inspiration from a lot of different sources - lines in books, tv commercials or snippets of conversation provide comical images in my head. I'll also flip through magazines of all kinds to get inspiration for multi-media projects. When I run out of ideas from those sources, I'll just talk to my nutty mother who's also my assistant and she'll keep me more than inspired than I asked for!! Do you have a day job? I actually took a part time job at a restaurant and work there 1 or 2 days a week there to get out of my studio and be with physical people. It was getting lonely working at home and the restaurant is also a great source of inspiration and a lot of fun. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why? I need to update my shop with my new products but I'd say that my favorite item currently is the cat on vacation series of cards. The series stars a little cat named benjamin who's fed up with the mundane and decides to travel the world. I have a lot of fun painting that series.



NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!!
Jennifer is supplying one lucky winner with 5 cards from her "Girls with Tea" series. These lovely cards are embossed on both front and back and each features the print of an original crazy bliss watercolor painting. The cards measure 4 1/4" x 6 1/2", have been printed with vibrant vivera inks and come with a matching white envelopes
.

CONTEST IS CLOSED!!

Thank-you for entering!!

  69. What a wonderful giveaway. I loved looking through the Crazy Bliss shop! Everything was really cute, but I have to say I was especially fond of the Cat in the Sink card. It reminded me of my own cat who is always in the bathtub. Okay...it isn't the sink, but it is close. :) Just precious!
