Well friends…we made it to Friday. I can’t believe it either.
As a reward, we’ve got some seriously cool eye candy for you.
If you haven’t visited Etsy before you should put down your coffee, open a new tab and immediately go check out www.etsy.com. Don’t blame me if you find yourself lost for a few hours in this community of hand and heart crafted goodies. Etsy is like a giant virtual swimming pool of creative, quirky genius.
So after you’re caught up, come back and read this post. For the rest of us, lets continue…
On a recent swim through Etsy I found Patricia at PeanutOak Prints. Now, I’m a sucker for a cool poster, but when I saw this little goodie I squealed.
WAFFLES! You all know how I feel about Waffles.
So after browsing through Patricia’s gallery I knew we had to have a love fest in honor of her posters. Thankfully she’s as sweet as can be and was even willing to share a bit more about herself and her work!
Without further ado, please welcome Patricia all the way from Lisbon!
What inspires you as a graphic designer?
As a graphic designer or a communication designer as I like to think of myself, I’m inspired by everyday life, from the big things to the little things, from nature to road signs and it goes on and on … I think all things around us can be a source of inspiration and they don´t have to be visual, because Music is also very important to me.
How long have you been an Etsy seller? What made you take the leap to opening up your “virtual” storefront?
I’m an Etsy seller since 2008 with my Peanutoak profile, as an urban jewelry and bag designer. The PeanutoakPrint (the Posters Etsy shop) opened this February, as a result of an artistic need to reach other ways of expressing myself. And Etsy is such a great place to reach the world, and to think that your work can go so many places it´s an amazing feeling.
Do you offer custom color/sizing options?
Yes, it’s something I put in all of my listing descriptions, because I think it’s important to give the buyer some space to find a Poster that can be custom made to his/her personal taste.
How would you describe your home decor?
I’ve just moved to my new flat with my boyfriend and we are still in a decorating process, so it’s an ongoing project but I would say it’s a modern vintage with a glimpse of a romantic feel to it.
What’s your favorite breakfast food?
I love breakfast! It’s my favorite meal in the day, following the old saying that my grandmother used to say to me “Always have a Queen’s breakfast and a Poor girl’s dinner”. So, I try to make it as fun and diversified as I can with things such as: croissants, bread, french toast, tea, orange juice, milk, cereals, scones with butter and jam, ham and a variety of cheese! Not all together, but alternating to make it different everyday! It’s a real nice moment, and we seat and take our time in the morning just eating it, it’s kind of a tradition or a good habit I would say.
A HUGE thanks to Patricia for participating in our little interrogation.
And if you want more… (Me too!)
You can view additional work from PeanutOak Print, order any of the prints shown here or just to avoid that first email for a few extra minutes visit her Etsy shop at:
At $19 a piece, or two for $30 you could afford to make a whole wall of her reto style posters! How cool would that be? Hello collage love!
Are there any fellow poster lovers out there? I feel like posters can bring a bit of childhood spunk to an otherwise serious space. And lets face it, at the end of the week we could all use a little extra spunk.
