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. Great cards!

  2. Darling cards and an inspiring blog. Thank you for being real and giving the rest of us permission to admit that our homes are less than perfect, too.

    1. You’re welcome, Dawn. And thank you for this kind comment.
