Tuesday Giveaway - ONEELM Style

What's shaking Blogstalkers?

It's Tuesday and sometimes on Tuesdays I host giveaways.  Today's offering is brought to you by Sarah who operates the Etsy shop ONEELM.  So without further Lauren blathering, which I know we all get sick of, I shall turn it over to Sarah.

Well Hello.  As Lauren mentioned in her incessant blathering, I am Sarah, the owner of ONEELM on Etsy.

ONEELM is a home-based, part-time, graphic design/Etsy store in the capital city of the great state of Ohio.(Can I get an “I-O” to my “O-H” please? Do people from Iowa or New Hampshire also yell out the spelling of their home state to each other? Maybe it’s an Ohio thing, I’ve always wondered.)


Anyway, Lauren announced this giveaway and I begged her to participate. Actually, I e-mailed her and then promptly left for vacation and then didn’t respond back for like fourteen days.  As a fellow Blogstalker, she totally had me when she first mentioned she loved Alice in Wonderland. I just knew we were kindred spirits from that very moment. (Kindred spirits huh?  Any chance you're also an Anne of Green Gables person Sarah?) 

Also, just like Lauren, I quit my job as a non-profit director to seek sanity and concentrate on the more important things in my life, my family and finding my own bliss. I am proud to say I married my very best friend and we have three children between us. We also have a four year old labradoodle named Otis who serves as my own personal art critic. He has discerning tastes.
Obviously.
ONEELM on Etsy opened a few months ago after the urging of my mother ever since Etsy was a thing. I strive to always find the positive side of things because life is too short to dwell on negative stuff. 

My art prints are colorful and reflect my personality. I hand draw many of my own fonts, graphics and then illustrate the rest. My previous commissioned pieces are also for sale and I take custom requests for everything from home beer brew labels to chore charts. (By the way, I have no advice in how to get your kid to do any of the chores on a chart, but at least it will look cool hanging on your wall. I do however, have a few really great home brew recipes I could share.)  



My Etsy store is my creative escape from my very structured graphic design work and accounting duties I perform for my husband’s company.  I hope you’ll stop by!

My giveaway is an 8 ½”  by 11” print featuring an excerpt from the 1872 Lewis Carroll classic: Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. And because I know Lauren loves her Blogstalkers and to sweeten the pot, I’m throwing in one of my own personal vintage copies of the book which served as inspiration. 

The text on the print reads: The time has come my little friends to talk of other things.  Of ships and sealing wax of cabbages & kings and why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.  Calloo, callay, come run away with the cabbages and kings.

As a final thought: I’m still curious as to why no one on Zazzle.com has created “WWAD?” (What would Alice Do?) bumper stickers. I checked, they are not a thing yet and you’re welcome for the idea. You have to send Lauren and me a portion of your profits.

Also, any orders in the ONEELM shop will also receive free shipping between now and May 23rd, 2013 by entering “LAURENLOVESRYAN” during checkout.

And now I'll turn it back over to Lauren.



So here's the deal.  Just comment for an entry.  The winner will be announced in next Monday's post.  And please make sure you check out Sarah's shop (which is named after her adorable daughter Emma's initials) because it is amazing and full of things I want to have.  Especially her Yes No Maybe So print.

**As always, I was not paid or perked in any way to participate in this giveaway.  I just like you guys.**

  3. I love the Roald Dahl piece. The idea of joy (or anything, really) "shin[ing] out of your face" cracks me up.

  4. Oh sweet baby Jesus this is what I have needed! To go with my mad tea party picture above my couch. Because who loves Alice almost more than Mary popping and the doctor? This woman.

    The writer/book lover in me is drooling at the vintage copy of Through the Looking Glass. Squeeee. I could also think of a thousand perfect places in my apartment for the print. My (new) live-in boyfriend doesn't get a say. Those are the rules.

  135. You should do the Zazzle alice thing...would be pretty easy. Just head on over to graphics fairy, openclipart.org or wikipedia commons and find you a public domain Alice and then use Zazzle's own text to add the message.
