Where in the world is Moxie & Oliver?

Maybe it is the book of brain teasers that keeps being passed around, or maybe it is being halfway around the world (well, not really, but it sounds better that way) but I'm inspired to play a little "Where in the World?"

So take a look at the photo above. This is where I am right now, and can determine your coupon! I think some of you already know where I am, so here is what you get:

1. Location (city) is worth 10% off
2. Name of the landmark is worth 15% off
3. Body of water that it is in is worth 20% off

All coupons good in my Etsy store through July 13 towards in stock merchandise only (don't worry, everything in my Etsy store is in stock, and I have someone shipping for me while I am gone! Yay!). Enter your answers all as one word (no spaces) into the coupon code at check-out. Not valid towards previous purchases.

Have fun - and good luck!

Unified Aesthetic

Something I've struggled with in the past is a kind of "disjointed" look to my Etsy store. It happens again, and again, and again partly because of the way I create/list things in my shop. Well, maybe I'm doing this no more, or maybe I'm just not doing it right now, but today I looked, and I love the way that my shop appears, at least the first page. For the first time in years, I've had the opportunity to make a large body of work, and post it at the same time.

And for the first time in years, I'm not putting any made to order or custom work in my Etsy shop. I'll clutter up with that, but the Etsy shop stays clean, at least for the next few weeks. If I haven't said it yet, I like the way it looks.

I created a body of about 70 new pieces to post this month - I've been working hard and sleeping little since our last trip to the UK. I found the fashion and colors inspiring, and where my work still has (proudly) a lot of my style in it, I think that the trip gave me the drive to be a little brighter, bolder and more adventurous than I have been in the past.

So here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order. I'll add them to the Etsy shop and to the website in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out. But for now, I hope you'll just enjoy the colors as I do!
