This drawing is available with custom cut mat & free shipping this weekend. I've joined the Weekend Deals - Free Shipping World Wide sale on Etsy. Orders placed before midnight Sunday in both of my Etsy shops, ArtSnark (art & jewlery) and Steamdreams (assemblage supplies) ship at no extra charge. Some of my items already had free shipping. If a shipping charge is listed, I will refund the full shipping cost via paypal.

I'll be adding more pieces to both shops throughout the weekend.

Lots of Etsy sellers are participating in this sale. Once you click through to Etsy, search "weekend deals" or "Free Shipping". You can also choose a category 1st & then enter either of these into search box.

By the way, Melange has 2 more challenges up right now - The Mix it Up prompt is Serenity - click on prompt & go to comments for artists' links or to add your own interpretation. Also there is a new Fabric Challenge post for Melange team members. Are you a mixed media artist on Etsy? If so, you are welcome to apply for Melange team membership. Click here for details.

Bit of a rush this morning. Hope you all have a creative weekend. If you're in the blogland neighborhood tomorrow, stop by for a new Studio Tour Saturday. Love to have you come along!
