Anyone who knows me knows I love Etsy. I buy handmade and vintage objects all the time from one of the best things to come into April’s world in the last 10 years.

Ashley purchased a lot of items for her wedding day from Etsy and all of them so beautiful and thoughtful. Ashley gave all of her bridesmaids beautiful clutches from Etsy shop Oatmeal Lace Design with their names stitched inside the clutches and Jon gave all of this groomsmen cuff links with the bus tokens from their home towns (made by Etsy shop Subway Cufflinks).

Happy Birthday


The next birthday card I am going to be selling (and of course using myself).

Found the Shakespeare quote today I am going to use with it.

To me, fair friend you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I ey’d
Such seems your beauty still.

Sonnet, 104

Bliss Blog


Once again I was so excited to be featured on Bliss’ blog.

Mrs. French wrote this about my work:

soooo…as i go through april rocha’s amazing etsy shop i come up with ways to decorate my bare walls. at the moment i am thinking i would love to create some type of grouping with these…decisions, decisions! this photo-lady has too much talent. which is why, yet again, i am so surprised she chose my bliss. my sponsors are truly some of the most magnificent women i know…or sort of know. so truly honored to have ms. april rocha in my little group of big talent.

she has a way of combining beautiful softness, with proud architecture and joyful ferris wheels…i can’t believe all of these masterpieces come from the same place. such a lovely shop, from such an gifted photographer…thank you dear april for sharing your talent and standing by my little blog.

Once again, thank you Mrs. French.

Great Gift Ideas in my Etsy Shop


I have recently renewed a bunch of fine art prints on my Etsy site. Great gifts for a new baby’s room, the newly remodeled kitchen or greeting cards for the friend who is hard to find a present for.

Etsy has recently made some improvements to their site, including larger image size, and I’m very impressed with what they have done.

So enjoy and seriously considering buying something from my shop.
