One of the best thing about being a blogger is being introduced to products and brand I might not otherwise have known about. I’m not a world traveler. I’m not one to hang out at the mall and keep up with the latest trends and I only search the internet when I have something specific in mind. Needless to say I do not have many opportunities to learn about new products and brands. As a blogger people reach out to me – which I love.
I’m sure many readers have heard of the website Etsy before. Etsy is a site that allows crafters to sell their crafts. Think of it as a giant craft fair but online.
You can find some of the world’s most beautiful things on Etsy. I visit Etsy often just to look around. I admire the crafter’s talents. I wish I had even a fraction of their talent.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a lovely women who has an Etsy store called My Happy Heart Art. Even before visiting the site I was in love with her business name. The shop owner’s name is Debbie.
My Happy Heart Art offers consumers the most beautiful 3D artwork I have ever seen. Each one is made BY HAND by Debbie herself. The artwork literally “pops” or “flies” off the artwork.
Here are a few examples of the art found at My Happy Heart Art.
As you can see, My Happy Heart Art has elements that literally pop off the background like the flowers in the above picture and the butterflies in the sunshine picture.
Butterflies seem to be a favorite at My Happy Heart Art. Butterflies are a favorite of mine too. I have always loved butterflies. I’ve even toyed with the idea of getting a butterfly tattoo, like a tiny Monarch Butterfly on the back of my neck.
A dear friend of mine also refers to me as “My Precious Butterfly” (long story). In addition, I am big fan of Elton John and one of my favorite songs from him is “Someone Saved My Life Tonight.” Some of the lyrics in the song are…
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away bye bye
For some reason that has always resonated with me. I think it has to do with a low sense of confidence and self-esteem. As we all know, butterflies don’t start out as beautiful beings. They eventually metamorphosized into the creatures people love. I also interrupt the part about “butterflies are free to fly” as “you can do and be anything you want to be” and not to let anyone or anything hold you back.
The song is about someone contemplating suicide – I won’t go there! I don’t “hear” the song in that way. I just love the music and SOME of the lines, mostly about the butterflies.
But I digress…
I was asked if I wanted to review a piece of artwork from My Happy Heart Art, to which I replied with an astounding “YES!”
I looked over all of the examples and opted for a heart, because I am a loving person. I wanted a heart like this (referred to as an “Ombre Heart” because it changes color from light to dark).
I didn’t want it personalized (like the one pictured). Instead I used a quote from the Elton John song I mentioned above in this post.
I was truly amazed by how well the artwork turned out. It’s stunning! You can tell that a lot of love was put into making it. It’s perfect! It’s so much more beautiful in person than it is in a photograph.
The artwork is hanging up in our hallway and is the first thing you see when you walk into our home. The photograph does not do the artwork justice. The red is much more vibrant and the white background is brighter and whiter. Do to the fact our hallway is narrow I couldn’t get a photo further away. There is also no sunlight in the hallway (only a ceiling light) which explains why the color is off.
The butterflies literally fly off the page. It’s amazing!
I asked Debbie how I can clean the dust off it it. She recommended canned air. For now I just blow on the butterflies wings to get off any dust or dander. So far that is working for me. I clean a few times per week so it shouldn’t be an issue.
I LOVE that Debbie was able to personalize the artwork with a quote that means something to me. That makes this even more special.
Debbie can personalize her artwork for you too with a favorite quote or a person’s name.
Everything is handmade to order. These items are not mass produced. She has many deigns and colors to offer.
I don’t know if they all come as a standard size. If so, it’s a significant sized piece (it’s not little – it’s large).
These pieces of art would make wonderful gifts for a newborn, newly married couple, a child or a special someone in your life.
