Little Fly Studios wants to make MOAR offbeat works of custom art, just for you

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.


What can I do with these branches?

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?


Make your own city map wall art

One of the blessings/curses of moving to a new and bigger place is having an abundance of blank wall space. If you're like me, you want to fill it with color, color, and more color. Unfortunately, art is expensive. Fortunately, DIY is cheap and easy. I fell in love with graphic city map concept a while ago. So I attempted to make my own for around $37.
