Coasters are here! And just in time for the holidays.

coasters 050

A handmade coaster with original Artwork by April Alayne available just in time for the holidays!

This coaster is handmade by April herself and by hired local crafters in her neighborhood.
Each coaster is carefully put together with love and care! And each coaster purchased helps an independent artist be employed for the season.

These ceramic coasters are 4.5 X 4.5 inches and sealed with a protective coating. The backs are hand cut soft 100% black polyester felt and provide a cushion and non scratch backing to protect your table tops.

These coasters make a wonderful gift and recommended in sets of 4! You can have a nautical theme, a beard theme, a woodland theme or simply pick your favorites for you or family and friends. They make an interesting conversation piece and a unique collection for your home.

Limited supply!

Available in my Etsy shop!

Please head on over to AlwaysApril.Etsy.com to pick up your new art prints.
If you are a fan of the art but do not wish to own prints but would like to help out simply spread the word! That would be the best of help.

Now if you are feeling extra sassy there is a little piggy donate button to the right of my website, any little bit helps.

To my artsy blog followers,

I am sorry it has been a while! Life has been so very hectic and wonderfully wild! I have been a traveling gypsy with the Villan Arts Tattoo gang selling my artwork along the way! These shows have been beyond wonderful with the new people I meet and the having my work really fit in. I feel like this lost kitten has found her home.

Vintage finds for February. In all sizes!

Hey everyone! I went shopping for you again. It has been over 2 years and running  TOH and I am still excited to be bringing you vintage finds.I have been getting more and more emails asking to find not just plus size clothing but vintage clothing in every size so I will be doing just that. Naturally I will cater more towards plus size clothing since it is such a hard task but slowly I will introduce smaller sizes as well. I couldn’t model for you this time for 2 reasons. First off  because of surgery a coupe weeks ago that left me weak so I wasn’t feeling up to the challenge and second off I bring you smaller sizes this voluptuous body cant squeeze into (even though i want to badly!) The dress form is a wonderful addition to the shop. I would love to get your feed back on what you prefer though.

But for now here is what I have found just in time for Valentines Day!
