Wishing you and yours a joyful start to the New Year!
Looking forward to creating all kinds of “literary art with a vintage vibe” in 2016…. Stay tuned!
It’s almost mid-December!
The artsyletters elves say they’ll need orders by the end of the week (Dec. 18) to get them shipped in the US in time for Christmas, according to USPS posted estimates.
Readers, writers, or letter lovers on your list? Find the perfect gift or stocking stuffer to bring a smile to their literary lips. Use Coupon Code TAKE5 at checkout for 5 percent off your order.
Thanks for coming by, and wishing you and yours a warm & wonderful holiday. :0)
If you’re in Beaufort this busy holiday weekend, come on up to the Studio on Saturday afternoon between 2 pm and 4:30 pm! Browse handmade gifts for the bookish folks on your gift list and enjoy some refreshments.
An elf has told me Santa will be at the Clock on Bay Street from 11 to 2, and you’ll want to enjoy the Light Up the Night Boat Parade at 5:30. (The Parris Island Marine Corps Band concludes the festivities at 7 p.m.) What to do in the afternoon? Visit downtown’s shops and galleries, and come say hello! We are at 811 Bay Street, above Modern Jewelers. The stairs are steep, but the welcome is warm. (Note – we won’t be open during Night on the Town this year, but do come by Saturday afternoon!) See you then!
Holiday Shopping Season is in Full Swing!
Wish you had some elves to help?
While I don’t have elves to hire out, I do have five ready-to-go gift ideas if you have any readers, writers, teachers, or crafty folks on your list. (Click any image to learn more about each product.)
Here are two gift packs ($15 each) that made their way onto some sleighs last year:
First, for the Book Nerds in your life:
And the poets:
And here are three new gift packs!
First, for Teachers:
This “TEACHERS RULE” pack includes my apple and books notecards, a bookmark, large magnet, and – just for fun – a 6-inch ruler (made in the USA)! These items come in a fun black gift bag with chalkboard-white designs. I’m happy to personalize the bag with white chalkboard paint if desired. This gift set is $17.50
Next, for the Wordsmiths in your world:
This “WRITERS WRULE” pack includes my typewriter notecards, a bookmark, large magnet, and – again, just for fun – a 6-inch ruler. This gift set is $16.50.
Finally, for the artists, crafters, and creators in your sphere who have lots of ideas and inspirations to keep track of:
This (affordable!) “MAKER MAGNET GIFT PACK” features a large magnet which reads, in chalk-inspired lettering, “A maker before there was a movement” – as well as a circular chalkboard-inspired “Make – Made do” magnet and a flat laminate “I make, therefore I am” magnet. These are tucked into recycled kraft shreds and presented in a shimmery mini organza gift bag. (Just $10.75)
Thanks for taking a look, and may all your holiday shopping be wrapped up without a lot of stress! And may you find or make the perfect gifts for your special someones.
Hope your Thanksgiving brought to mind many things to be grateful for. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to create through artsyletters, and to have the support of customers, family, and friends.
If you’d like to do any holiday shopping in my Etsy shop, please click on the coupon image above and be sure to enter “Dickens” in the checkout lane! (Coupon is for 10 percent off and is good the entire weekend, through Monday, Dec. 1.)
I’ll still be adding new items in coming days, including tiny Writer Mouse/found poem ornaments.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday!
[ Wishing everyone a day of rest on Sunday… ;0) ]
Just like a sunset, summer is beginning to slip on the horizon. Are those school bells I hear in the distance?
No, waves. And gulls. At least for a few more days – or if you’re lucky, a few more weeks.
If you’d like to send along a bit of the beach with your summertime correspondence, I have a couple of new designs for you! These are new note cards, but the original pen and ink drawings were actually penned long ago. I hope they stand the test of time – and sand!
The images are black and white with a background color of something akin to light olive. These are printed on premium cardstock from environmentally sustainable forests with gloss coating on the outside.
Thanks for taking a look!
Wishing you and yours a relaxing rest of the summer….
