Treasure Thursday – 3SistersLove (giveaway) CLOSED


Winner of the first Treasure Thursday and the Adorned You giveaway is:image image
Congratulations Milka! Hope you can wear this ring at your ball :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every year, around Christmas time, I’m searching calendars for a new year. Etsy offers so many beautiful calendars, but seems that I have fund my favourites. At least for the 2010.

Today’s treasure comes from three sisters. 3SistersLove is a really cute Etsy shop that sells stationery, calendars, gifts and more.

 Where does your shop name come from?
We are 3 loving sisters :)

How long have you been designing cards and calendars? How and why did you start?
The oldest sister is an artist and a graphic designer. The middle sister is a painter and a vet student. The youngest is… well… blonde with blue eyes, and she is there to inspire us and bring new ideas!
We’ve been always creative in our daily lives as well as at work. We started our Etsy journey in 2008, creating clay pendants at first. Then from there, using our skills in fine arts and graphics our designs slowly evolved from 3d clay objects to 2d paper goods.

 Where do you get your inspiration for the items in your shop?
We are story tellers and get inspired from other creative people that tell stories thru their designs. For example, one of our favorite architects is I.M Pei. In his architecture every viewing angle has depth and tells a story. We think about our designs even before initial sketching phase.

If you had to choose just one favorite item in your shop, what would it be and why?
Our calendar designs are what we are really proud of. We can’t choose between Version 1 and Version 2 because they are both very special to us.


It wasn’t easy to design them as it probably looks. For both versions each month has it’s own concept. Even with different concepts we had to make sure that at the end all 12 months are unified thru color and style of that particular calendar. It’s like putting together a puzzle.

    I like version 2 of the Calendar.

    I like it because it is more colorful then version 1 and i really like bright and colorful things. They just stand out more. I guess thats good for a calendar.

  25. Loving Version 2. Why? Because of the use of colours as well as the cool pictures. Love the use of animals and other meaningful things in life.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. It's Version 2 for me. Version 1 is quite festive in my opinion and while that isn't a bad thing, it looks a little plainer than Version 2 which is so vibrant and cool!

  50. It's hard to decide. I like the first one because the designs are more uniform, but the second calendar has great color which would brighten up any workspace. I think I may have to go with #1.

  52. I would most like to win the Version 1 calendar. To be honest, both versions are absolutely adorable, but I think my mom would like the animal and nature illustrations of V.1 the best!

  53. I like the polar bear calendar best. The color is so soft and tranquil, the bears are so cute, and its really beautifully designed.

  77. I like both versions and at first I was going to say 1 because it looks like the dates are easier to read, but I mean, if you're not really going to write on it now I'd have to say version 2, more bright colours make it look more like a work of art from farther away and would really pop in a kitchen!

  78. love Version 2 bc it would suit our bedroom better!

    ReplyDelete
  79. The calendars are beautiful. I like Version 2 for its vibrant colors and images, but I love Version 1 more. :) Version 1 has a calming effect for me. The white background exudes a relaxed and "clear-minded" feel, which is good for my busy and colorful days. ;)

    Thanks for having this wonderful giveaway!

  87. This is a hard one. I think I like the designs on Version 1 slightly more (being a bee nut), but the colour punches on Version 2 have got to be the winner in my mind. I would love to have that vibrancy on my desk every day!
