What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Ardently Crafted



While researching this week’s Etsomnia post, I came across the phenomenally-designed gift tags by Etsy seller ArdentlyCrafted and instantly knew they needed their own post.

Maker Kathleen creates beautiful, whimsical, jointed works of art for you to use as gift tags, present embellishments, or ornaments, and I want them all!

They remind me a little of the paper dolls by FiveAndNineteenBlackbirds, but while those were dark and mysterious, these pieces are disarmingly quirky and funny. ArdentlyCrafted also makes incredibly charming paper dolls which are really worth checking out.

The lovely Kathleen has also offered a coupon code for My One Beautiful Thing readers! The code is BEAUTIFUL10OFF and is good for 10% off everything in her shop through the end of February 2017. Thanks, Kathleen!
