etsy excitement.

After the overwhelming response from my post on state necklaces, I thought I'd "send a conversation" to the etsy artists to know how much my readers loved them. A few hours later, I get a reply from Rachael--the incredible designer behind sudlow.

She said my new blog header helped to inspire her to create this beauty of a piece 
{which I promptly had to purchase}...
{Long Distance Love Customizable Necklace by sudlow}

After perusing her profile, I discovered Rachael is a Rhode Island School of Design graduate, which just so happens to be where I take my design classes. {Granted, I'm just taking night classes...she is a full-blown graduate! Big difference!} Yay for the web making connections :)

Rachael was kind enough to offer {long distance loving} readers 
free shipping in the month of February. Yes you read that right!
All you need to do mention you're a reader of {long distance loving}.


Look at a few of her other pieces...
{Custom Shape Cufflinks by sudlow}
{Shot Through the Heart Lariat by sudlow}
...the original, in any state you wish...
{Custom State Necklace by sudlow}
Make sure to stop by Rachael's corner of etsy soon to claim your free shipping! She's super speedy in her response times and incredibly helpful too. I was so happy to hear back from all of the other artists I contacted! Etsy truly is a friendly {and inspiring} corner of the internet--which I'm sure many of you already knew.

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! 
I'll catch up with all of you soon :)
xoxo {av}

  11. AV, you are so fantastic! Now I definitely have to pick up one of the New York necklaces -- although I'm loving the one she designed for Long Distance Loving. To be honest, there's a huge chance I'll just get both. :)
