Weekly Featured Artist & Giveaway, RED LINC ART

10:06 AM

(4) Comments

I am Tracey Rediker, artist and shop owner of Red Linc Art. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, and have studied seriously since I was 8 years old. I love to create art in all sorts of media. Generally, my paintings, drawings and photography are realistic and figurative with a pop art quality. I like to take the everyday and put a new spin on it. Inspiration, for me, can be found everywhere. My children’s faces, a conversation with a friend, or a view I have seen a thousand times before but only appreciated that day.

In my shop you will find original works in Oil, Acrylic, Pencil and Photography. I offer framing, at an additional cost, and prints of most of the pieces available on the site.




Tracey has been kind enough to offer an 8x10 print of anything in her Etsy shop for us to GIVE AWAY. Here are the rules for the giveaway:

Tell us your name and how to contact you (include an email addy or etsy shop name) in the comments below and tell Tracey which item in her shop is your favorite and WHY it's your top choice.

For each of the following you earn an extra entry into the drawing. For each that you do, be sure to come back here and tell us in the comments:

elementary student planner

5:31 AM

(1) Comments

I finally finished designing the student planner for my soon-to-be 2nd grade son, Luke. It is a culmination of our experiences with school last year. It takes into account the needs of an ADHD student by providing things like a daily picture reminder to take home jacket, lunch box, etc every day. However, it is great for any early elementary student.

The cover is all my own personal photography of places we've been and things we've seen. I offer another, more girlie, version of this cover in a different color palette as well. I will personalize your student planner with your child's name on the cover.

Inside, each week is covered in one 2-page spread. There are spaces for homework assignments and reminders; list of what to bring home; visual reminder of items such as jacket and lunchbox to bring home daily; daily parent-teacher communications; daily behavior report; weekly spelling words; and favorites for the week.

The 80-page planner runs from August 24 to June 18 with December 21 to January 1st omitted for Holiday Break. If these dates don't work for you, contact me and we'll discuss a custom planner.

I thought other moms might like to have this so I have posted a download of the entire 80+ page planner for just $4 in my Etsy shop. Check out the listing here.

If you wanted to purchase the "girl"
version now, just purchase the one I have listed and put a note to seller that you want the girl cover.

Even if you are not interested in purchasing it for
your child, take a look and post your feedback. I can certainly make improvements at any point.

Wristlets have arrived

10:05 AM

(0) Comments

We made a cute little wristlet/clutch a couple weeks ago for a day-long trip to the zoo. I didn't want to have to keep up with a purse or carry a backpack in the nearly 100 degree temps in S.C. So we made a wristlet. I love the wristlet so much, I carry it all the time now. I have ditched my purse unless I need to carry something massive.

I've been using it every day, both to test it out, and because I love it. It works out great. Today I listed the wristlet in our Etsy shop
here.

We can make just one more in these fabrics as I have just enough of the upcycled pillow sham I used on the exterior to create only ONE. Of course, we can make this wristlet from other coordinating fabrics that would be just as beautiful too. Just contact us if you'd like to see some fabrics.

Reusable Coffee Cuffs/Sleeves/Cozies are Eco-Friendly and Show Your Personality

(1) Comments

Smart sleeves! Keep your coffee or tea warm and your fingers protected with a reusable coffee sleeve. If you frequent the coffee shops, you could eliminate as much as 4.5 pounds of waste per year.

Our "Reese" cuffs fit standard cups from your favorite coffee shop. They will fit iced beverage cups too, keeping your hands dry and not too cold and reducing condensation drip.

We have a variety of coffee sleeves to choose from in botanical patterns and whimsical fabrics. Take a look at our Etsy shop at http://studiopolkadot.etsy.com.

All our coffee cuffs/sleeves/cozies are available for immediate delivery. Custom orders can be shipped within 48 hours.

So show a little personality with your coffee and save some trees in the process. Take a resuable coffee sleeve and tell the barista to "hold the cuff."
