Well, hello there! Welcome to Bows & Sparrows. My name is Erin and I'm a writer, a coffee addict, an ellipses abuser, a list maker, a hater of cardio workouts, a believer that my dog is the best dog ever, a hair twirler, a graphic designer...and more.
Part of the thrill I get from blogging is being able to share all the talented designers, fabulous boutiques, covetable products, stunning homes and style-savvy fashionistas that I discover - whether they be from the city where I reside (Sacramento, CA) or from halfway around the globe.
I'm glad you stopped in and...I hope you'll take off your coat, pull up a chair and stay for awhile. Oh, and if you're feeling inspired, leave me a comment or shoot me an email introducing yourself - I'd love to meet the virtual you!
Without the lovely images featured on Bows & Sparrows, this blog just wouldn't be the same. I do my best to credit each image or photo I use, and will gladly remove one if requested to do so - just let me know.
Remember chain letters? You know, those annoying letters you used to get in the mail (in days before the internet) that you then had to forward on to several of your friends or risk bad luck in the future. Well, I had completely forgotten about them until my friend Allison Kreft Abad (of Hambly Screen Prints) sent me one title "The Art Exchange."
At first I was a little suspect, but as I read the letter I became inspired and excited. Here's an excerpt: "You have been chosen to be part of an awesome art exchange! (HOORAY!)." To participate please make one work of art/craft and send it to the person whose name is listed in the #1 position below. It can be a little drawing, a print, a comic or a zine, a photo, a felted creation, a beaded thing... Whatever fits your niche and can be dropped in the mail within a week." The letter promised, that should the people I forwarded it onto do the same, I would receive 36 works of art in the near future.
Well, I'm dropping mine in the mail tomorrow...and, with any luck, I'll be receiving some new art in a few weeks! When I do, I'll be sure to share them with you.
