Kitty Notecard Giveaway!

Contest is now closed, thanks everyone for entering!


Today's Etsy feature and giveaway comes to us from Deborah Julian on Etsy! Deborah's shop features lovley cards and prints made from her original artwork, most of which features adorable kitties! Let's get to know Deborah and her shop - and read on to learn how you can win a set of assorted notecards:

1. How long has your Etsy shop been open and what inspired you to start selling on Etsy?

My Etsy shop opened in February. As a photographer I am always looking for places to sell my art work. I am also a cat lover who has been making cards from photos of my cats for family and friends for many years. I heard about Etsy about two years ago and finally decided it was time to open a shop. I started my Etsy shop with my cat images in mind but have started to add more of my fine art prints. I think my two bodies of work go well together.



2. How do you fit time to create into your day?

I work a day job so I have to be really organized with my time. I work on my images every day even if only for a short period of time. I'm delighted when I have an entire day to devote to working on my images. Of course my cats insist that I take frequent breaks to play with them. When I first opened my Etsy shop I was spending a lot of time promoting my shop in the Forums and on other websites. I finally realized that it is important to spend as much time creating the work as I do promoting it.

3. Do you have any fun hobbies outside of your shop?

I love to travel and visit new places. I live in New York and enjoy going to art museums and the theater whenever I can.

Deborah can also be found on myshopify, and Facebook.




Ok, ready to win a set of Assorted Cat Notecards? These would be so great for notes to friends or as a gift for a cat lover in your life, right? Ok, there are 7 possible entries, only the first one is mandatory, and please leave a separate comment for each entry. Also make sure I have a way to contact you in you win (etsy shop name, ravelry name, twitter name, or e-mail written out YOU at There dot com all work) Entries:

1. Hop on over to Deborah's shop, then come back here and leave a comment letting me know your favorite item.

2. "Like" Deborah Julian's shop on Facebook.

3. Add Deborah's shop to your Etsy favorites (heart her)

4. Follow this blog.

5. Follow Vegancraftastic on Twitter.

6. "Like" Vegancraftastic on Facebook.

7. Blog, tweet, or post on Facebook about this giveaway.

I love cats and love EVERYTHING in your Etsy Shop! (The Bookmarks are a very cool idea too) but I must say that my favorite would be the
"Cat Note Cards -Set of 5 Cards-Isn't it Dinner Time" because the Tuxedo cat pictured looks EXACTLY like our Tuxedo Cat. I mean EXACTLY!
