Celebrating 1 year with an Etsy 50 EUR gift card giveaway

Exactly 1 year ago, Natalie Zart was born and that is something I would love to celebrate with you! 

I can't bake a yummy cake to share with you and so instead, I would like to treat one of you to a €50 Etsy gift card

I am crazy into pretty, handmade, unique and design products, so I figured giving out an Etsy voucher is a perfect way to celebrate this birthday together. 

The lucky winner will be able to use the voucher for anything he/she wishes to, but if you are feeling a little uninspired, here are a few adorable products from my favorite Etsy sellers. All of them are priced under €50, so in other words, free for the lucky one of you ;)

How can you participate? 

Simply leave a comment below telling me what you would genuinely like to see more of on my blog. 

So far, I've been sharing inspirational photos with you, my own illustrations, photos from my travels and art from other illustrators that I admire. 
Are there any features that you are missing? Any post types you would like to see more often? I will really appreciate any feedback; at the end of the day, I would like you to enjoy visiting this space. 

Make sure that I can get in touch with you in case you are the lucky winner. That is, if you are leaving a comment any other way than using a Google account, then please note down your e-mail address. 

Anybody can take part & entries are open till 10.10.2014 (10am GMT+1 time). 
I will choose the winner and announce it in this post on 11.10.2014.
The Etsy gift card will be e-mailed to the winner.

  1. I love seeing everything you do and share on this blog. You starting your post is an inspiration in itself. I think it is amazing what you manage to do in your free time. How motivated and inspired you are to share with us a piece of your world. I am so happy to hear that this blog is a year old. I wish many many prosperous years for it and any other beginnings you wish to endeavor...

    What would I wish to see here more....hmmm.... I think it would be amazing to get a glimpse of places and moment where you get inspired, coffee shops, streets, gardens etc. and thought that come and give ideas. I think if you share such experiences with others, they might inspire people in their own unexpected way. I think it is beautiful to share the thought that touched your life with others whose day, or week, or life might change through them.

    Truly yours,

    Sasha <3

    1. Thank you for your lovely, genuine and thoughtful comment Sasha!
      I very much appreciate your feedback and your ideas. It will be my pleasure to share more about the sources for my inspiration (and happiness) and help others focus on the small joys of our everyday lives that, when noticed, can make all the difference.
      Have a wonderful day Sasha x

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog and I really like your illustrations. Watercolor and pencil/crayon based drawings like you do them are one of my favorite type of art/fanart. I follow lots of people who post stuff like this on tumblr and DeviantArt (If you have one of these, I'll be happy to follow you). I especially like your Drawing of the month for March, which is my birth month.

    I too would like to know how a piece of art came to be, what your thought process was, if it was planned or just a spur of the moment-type project. What is your favorite thing to draw? Portraits, landscapes, wildlife, still life, something else? Do you ever draw fanart of some sort? ;)

    And wow, your dad's art is awesome!

    I wish you luck and happiness in life and success in your future endeavors!

    2. Hi Andrea,

      I am so touched by your comment, thank you so much! It is very kind of you to mention my dad's art; I am continuously inspired and humbled by it.

      I must admit I have tried both Tumblr and DeviantArt platforms in the past and somehow, I ended up preferring Blogger, Facebook and Instagram. There is however some absolutely stunning art to see on DeviantArt, that is for sure.

      I will definitely focus on my process, beginning with idea formation and favorite subjects to draw in the future posts, thanks for mentioning these!

      Take care Andrea and all the best to you!

    1. Hi, At first, i want to apologise, because my english is not so good and i hope, you will understand.
      I´m 20 years old and you and your blog is the best inspiration for me. When I come back from work and school, the first blog, that i open is yours.
      I would like to see more of your drawings, because they are so beautiful. Maybe I would like to see more photos of your house/flat. Where do you draw inspiration? What´s your favourite blog?

      You are so nice, i wish you all the best in your future with your blog and your life. <3

    2. Hi Petra,

      Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comment & no worries regarding English at all :)

      It will be my pleasure to share more of where I live, where I draw my inspiration from and what my favorite blogs are (you can see some of them here: :).
