Review/Giveaway!! Pale Preoccupation

There are so many great things about Liese Chavez and her shop, Pale Preoccupation, that I'm not sure where to start! First of all, the name... just so unique! I love it. :) If you take two minutes to visit Liese's shop, you will see why I am in love. She is a great artist/illustrator, and is so friendly and helpful you feel like you are talking to an old friend instead of a shop owner.

I received a scrabble pendant necklace of her illustration: A WISH. This is the print:

A WISH -- signed Print of an Original Ink and Acrylic Painting -- PalePreoccupation

This is my scrabble pendant necklace:

A WISH -- Scrabble Tile Pendant -- FREE CHAIN -- FREE ILLUSTRATION

You can order this necklace here for $14 -- it comes with a free illustration as well as a free chain!


This is probably my favorite print... and only $16.
Secret Garden -- signed Print of an Original Ink and Acrylic Painting -- PalePreoccupation

Shipping is very reasonable ($3.00 for the above item), and the artwork is nothing short of amazing - especially for the price. I am going to order one of her prints for my daughter's next birthday. She will be turning 10 and they will make a great addition to her room. These will make great gifts for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, etc... anyone who appreciates art will fall in love with Pale Preoccupation!

I don't really see a down side to this item at all. The chain is not a cheapo chain, the art is not blurred in any way, and the pendant is sealed properly (at the sides as well not just on top). I am definitely putting this shop on my Top 10.

Liese has been kind enough to offer one of our readers a scrabble tile pendant of the image "Flown" with a silver plated chain and free illustration! You know the drill, the more responses you make the more chances you get to win!
