Free Holiday Gift, Art Giving Ideas ~ Borsheim Art News

Dear Art Lover,

     Hello and happy December!  I know you are busy this month, so here is a quick summary of what is in this letter:

  • The Art of Giving ~ tips by Singulart
  • FREE gift for subscribers
  • Holiday ornaments, but order SOON.
  • Choice works of art
  • Guest Artist gems


The Art of Giving

     If you are considering giving art of any kind, or even any gift other than food or consumables (candles, fire-starters, practical stuff, etc.), this article may be of use to you to help you decide WHAT you would like to give.

     My favorite quotes from this article, The Art of Giving from Singulart:  
"Your main goal here is to spark an emotion: may it be joy, serenity, confusion or surprise."

     "Gifting is about sharing. If you are happy about your purchase, you will share your emotions along with the gift and the recipient will feel it too. So keep it fun and inspiring for yourself too!"

FREE GIFT for subscribers!

     I currently have four designs of digital download GIFT TAGS.  If you visit my Etsy shop, please e-mail me or respond to this newsletter with the link copied from the browser of the ONE image that you would like to use for your holiday gifting, and I will send you the files as shown in the listing.

NEW stuff - Let us go Vintage!  

     Vintage Italian Digital Papers:  seems an oxymoron, no?  I photographed these antique designs hand-printed in Venezia, Italia and turned them into digital papers for scrap-booking, collage, and other craft uses.  I hope you enjoy (and more coming, little by little).

Vintage hand-printed Italian papers now available in digital files for crafters and scrapbooking

Venice Shoe ornaments: 

     I am so enamored of this illustration inspired by the Serenissima Island City.

1)  Plastic ovals ornaments with Venice Shoe design, printed on both sides and includes the year (hurry, because US shipping seems to be problematic this year):

Zazzle created plastic oval Christmas ornaments inspired by Venice, Italy

2)  If you prefer wood ornaments (printed only on one side, but has a magnet on the back side), go here:
[Note:  I ordered two, and they arrived inside ONE gift bag.  Plan accordingly.]
