  1. uncle willie-benediction by magic jelly

    oh, how i love these letters from good bloom. one would look so good on my daughter’s wall above her crib.

    and the bunny gocco print from argylewhale? i always say ‘nom nom nom’ to my baby when i’m feeding her.

    man, i could go on forever, but i’ll stop at the first three and spend the rest of my baby’s nap browsing every single store and feeling inspired. thanks for the inspiration along with the giveaway!

  2. ohh, how exciting! Here are some of my favorites: (I am particularly in love with all of junkyard Sam’s stuff! So fairytale-esque)

    Danita’s little ladies are so charming: – love funny girl! crafts+notebooks+musical theater- could one ask for more? 😉

    and lastly – – the 3D quality of all of Kirsty’s work is so awesome

    oh I could go on and on ^^

  3. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! What a great lineup! My favorites would have to be the whale print from Argyle Whale and Sarah Blank’s giclee print!

    fingers crossed that I win

  4. Admittedly, I have a soft spot for baby animals. Wonting’s prints get to me. I’ve had a soft spot for her fawn since its early days when it was a full print. Now it’s joined by the fox with the berries. So cute!

    Gracia and Louise make the most enchanting collages from ornaments and dress catalogues – looking at their zines and postcards always gives me the urge to pick up and leaf through my taschen books!

    Even one of my favorites on etsy turns up! Julia Pott’s Deer Loves You shrinkie ( is fun and curious. I hear she does tattoos now, too…

    I’m very happy to see all these designers and illustrators grouped together!

    There is a picture of the pika package on the shop page (the 1st pic) that shows a print in pinks and yellows. A couple riding on a deer through the forest. I couldn’t find it in any of the participants’ shops! Maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough, but who’s the artist? It’s really beautiful.

  5. This is fab-u-lous. Well I have 6 personal stand-outs that catch my design eye today (in no particular order)… 1. Matte Stephens ,2. Swallowfield ,3. Felicitate88 , 4. Good Bloom ,5. Magic Jelly ,and 6. Anna Ruby King
    Thank you for creating amaziing art

  6. You have many of my most favourite artist in this Pikapack, how could I chose just one item?

    Anna Ruby King rules, I love her little birds (especially her Gocco prints) and Julia Pott, I hearted nearly every item in her shop this afternoon, no joke, you can have a look!

  7. I LOVE the birds in lines from anna ruby king, also i love the flossy particles shop (everything in it!)

    some other fave shops are four crows, Danielle Hornyak’s recipe cards, and the mau studio

  8. OK, I noted too many (I visited them ALL!), so no links here.

    I liked the graphic impact of the “red flower print” at goodbloom, and the pinks and greens of “happy thoughts.”

    The “guinea pig pile gocco print” at Argyle Whale made me smile.

    Again with the graphic theme, I liked the “peacock flower screen print” at Wonting.

    Junkyard Sam’s “Handful of Quaggles” was great,

    Love the brilliantly titled sold out ‘zine “…if we stand very still, no one will notice” from Gracia + Louise,

    And, finally, the aptly named “Happy Sun Gocco Print” from Matte Stephens is the next thing on my wish list as I furnish our new (to us) split-level.

  9. What an amazing line-up!

    I just love Vinyl Wall Art…I’ve been searching for some good ones & they’ve definitely got some of the best I’ve seen. That owl! Love it!

  10. So many lovely pieces to browse! Cor, this was a tricky one, but I absolutely love Tsk Tsk’s ‘Mother’s Nest’ print – the mix of simplicity and complexity is just wonderful, and the colours used are warming on a somewaht chilly day here!

  11. it is so difficult to pick out just one of the Gypsy and Twink works to be my favourite.. I already have 7 that I want to have sitting in the various corners of my house, and although I live in Croatia which means that my postage costs will be astronomical, I might order some because I know they would make me very happy
    ok lets make this my favourite for today

  12. So much gorgeousness! Thank you for introducing me to these wonderful people. I adore Marissa Falco’s Amelia Earhart Gocco Prints (love her blog too). Another fave is Flossy P’s Happy Happy Gardens Card pack (and good to see something Australian).

  13. mizu designs. anything wood blocked, the process intrigues me and the outcome is magnificent. nice work!

    I can’t choose just one… those patterns…

  14. It is so hard to choose since all of them are really nice. But if I have to narrow it down, following are my choices:
    1. Magic Jelly
    2. Vinyl Wall arts
    3. Round Robin Press

  15. I find everything at Magic Jelly Emporium, the chandelier etching at vinyl Wall art, what katie does is hot! hot! hot!! Julie Pott is doing things that make me smile and giggle. Whatever Garcia Louis is doing, it is fantastic!

    Good luck!

  16. I love all the stores listed in the post. A couple of my favourites include “Metallic Locket With Metal, Stone, Glass And Plastic Beads by Danita” – this is absolutely gorgeous!!; and “The very reluctant farewell locket” by Sarah Blank. I simply love their work!
    And oh my, Amy, you are from KL! Boy, do I miss shopping during the day and mamak-ing at night in KL! Hehe.
