Thank you for YOU… a giveaway with Ordinary Artists

This is day 2 in the 3-day Thank You for YOU giveaway series.

Allow me to introduce you to Sarah, creative genius behind Ordinary Artists.

Sarah is cool beans. In addition to the crafts you’ll see here and on her Etsy site, Sarah’s a slam poetry artist. Dude, I am here to tell you I will never be that cool so I’m especially grateful to know people who are.

When I asked Sarah to tell us a little bit more about the how and the why of Ordinary Artists, she wrote, “When I was a little girl, my dad taught me how to make art. Now we make art together! We call ourselves ‘Ordinary Artists’ because we create beautiful art for every life. We love to use ordinary materials (buttons, fabric, ribbon, driftwood, doorknobs) to make little pieces of art that people can enjoy in their everyday lives. Personally, I love creating. I don’t think I could make it through life without the joy of making beautiful things. We started Ordinary Artists a year ago, and hope to continue making art and having fun for a long time.”

Today, we’re giving away not just one but both of these sets of Sarah’s Cute Little Button Cards. 

Set of 5 Reindeer Cards

Set of 5 Snowflake Cards

Ten cards to get you started on winter gift-giving!

Check out Ordinary Artists’ stocking stuffers section, too. And *ahem, Santa* if I find these flower bobby pins in dark blue and speckled earthy grey in my stocking on Christmas morning, I will be a very happy girl.


This giveaway is now closed.
Congratulations to our winner, Terri!

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.
  1. Woohoo! Enter me!

  2. These cards are awesome!

  3. Love them! Thank you for introducing us to these wonderful people!

    1. It’s my pleasure. Aren’t they great??

  4. Love these cards! I have a little of what some people call a “button problem.” I just think of it as a love for little wooded and/or plastic 2 to 4 holed items. (I also like donuts which only have 1 hole, but that’s ok). I can’t wait to check out this awesome site!

    1. I’m glad you’re not discriminatory to donuts just because they have fewer holes than buttons. I’m open-minded like you.

  5. Love the cards! I want them!!

  6. Cool cards! I like the idea of re-using the little bits and pieces to create new things!

    1. Me, too, Sheri! I just love Sarah’s concept here.

  7. It’s neato to see how many people read this blog.

    1. Totally agree. I get to see the behind-the-scenes stats, but this was such a fun, unexpected bonus of doing giveaways! Love having folks come out to say hello.

  8. Awesome cards! I love sending cards!

  9. I do so wish I could be that creative but alas it just wasn’t the way God made me. 🙂 Thankfully he made other people to sell their stuff on etsy! Those are so very cute!

  10. I love homemade cards. Thanks for the fun giveaways!

  11. Super cute! The bobby pins are so fun too!

  12. What adorable, unique cards! Happy holidays to you!

    1. Right back at ya, Audrey! Have a wonderful season full of joy.

  13. Super cute! I’d love to win them!

  14. Cute, cute , cute cards!

    I love finding creative little touches to add to Christmas gifts and these would be perfect!

  15. So cute! I love the cards.

  16. So simple and cute, but I didn’t think to make them, arg! From Spain…

  17. These are such cute cards! Being a crafter myself, I often see such things in craft shows and say to myself that I am capable of making this. But do I ever? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Therefore, winning them would be great. Thanks for the giveaways, Beth. You rock!

    1. TOTALLY agree, Julie! I gave up the “I can make that” in favor of the more realistic “I’m never going to make that” years ago. It’s remarkably freeing. 🙂

  18. Very cute, perfect for teacher gifts!

  19. Very cute cards! Thanks for these awesome giveaways!

  20. Very fun. Just found your blog. As a rule, I’m not a fan for mommy blogs. But yours, yes 🙂

    1. Aw – this was such a nice compliment. Thank you, Catherine.

  21. These are so cute, they’d be hard to part with as a gift. 🙂

  22. Gorgeous cards!! So unique 🙂

  23. These cards are so cute! I also loved her gold chalkboard and the groupings of one color vintage books. Cute ideas! Love reading your blog.

  24. I love your blog and look forward it everyday. The cards are gorgeous too 🙂
