{Giveaway Love} Winner


We have a winner for our most recent {Giveaway Love} featuring the wonderful etsy shop Wendi Winn!! The lucky winner will receive these great button ponytail holders. And I have been told the winner cannot be me, so...

The Random Number Generator chose comment number 26 this morning, and that is the lucky Lara Suvada, who said
"the clothes clips are very cute! I'd never thought of using them to close chip bags!!" Isn't that smart?! (Lara, I am getting ready to email you and tell you the good news, now! And I will have Winn email you as well!). Congrats again.

Congratulations to Lara, and thanks to everyone for playing.

more cards!

Hi Friends! I have been working hard the past few days to stock up lemon drop studio's etsy shop with more single greeting cards. To see just the greeting cards, you may click here.

In between silhouettes and custom orders, I managed to get a small handful done, photographed and listed in the shop. It's a tricky time of year to photograph products here in the Pacific NW, as it's kinda cloudy and gloomy most days, if not cloudy, gloomy AND rainy!


Stop by lemon drop studio's esty shop to check out what's new, including another new color (peacock blue!) in the Mustache Note Card Flat line! Exciting, I know!


And while you are browsing, check out the CLEARANCE section of lemon drop studio, this is a great place to find wonderful products and teeny, tiny prices! These are great to have on hand for quick gifts, stocking stuffers and more!

{Gotta Love It} Holiday Decor

Every once in awhile, and hopefully soon on a regular basis as things calm down, lemon drop studio wants to share the work of other great artists and Etsians with all of our blog readers and fans.

This morning I was in the mood to look at holiday decor and found these beauties that I just had to share with all of you. Take a look around their shops - you will be happy that you did!

From top left, and going around clockwise, you can find links to the Etsy shops and the items. Enjoy!
