We love creating a family of offbeat sponsors. Some of you may remember the gorgeous ketubah (pictured above) when it was featured in a wedding on Offbeat Bride a few years ago. Readers went nuts over the artwork in the comments, and it turns out it was created by the bride's mother, Wendy Blevins. Since then, Wendy has branched out and is now offering her artistic talents to everyone via her business Little Fly Studios.
Let's all look at some custom artwork examples (including a portrait of Ariel!), and support a creative family member of an Offbeat Empire reader while getting a special discount.
Artist Adam Wallacavage's show at the Philadelphia Art Alliance features his 16th-Century Baroque and gothic-inspired monster lamps, and Homies: you're gonna wanna see it. What do you think of these monstrously gorgeous chandeliers, Homies?
I have several piles of branches that have fallen out of the trees in my back yard and I was looking for a way to use up some of them before my landlords come and clean them up. what do I need to do to them to make them safe for indoors? To make sure there are no bugs or fungi or anything else growing on/in them. And what would be the best way to seal them, or make them last a long time?
Longtime Homie Vacantmuse sent her artsy shelf moment our way. I love her idea of making space for an ever-changing art display. Could this be the first Monday Moment "great idea of the day" combo!? I think so.
Our friend welded us this brass knuckle family crest! Our family name is at the bottom. What should we do with it?! Our best idea so far is to put it in our berry garden and let the raspberries grow around and through it.
