♥ Mar Mar Tree Sloth Giveaway!!! ♥



Another exciting giveaway here for all of you lovelies! When I discovered Mark Poulin's wonderful and magical etsy shop, Mar Mar, I was so thrilled to share this with you, so here it is--and a giveaway to boot! :) 

"When I was a boy I had a recurring dream that I could fly. Having an etsy shop makes me feel like that again."
~Mark Poulin of Mar Mar

Mar Mar reminds me of childhood and adulthood magically combined as one. The shop is filled with adorable yet beautifully modern jewelry featuring fun little characters of all sorts. The items are delicate and fun--a beautiful combination, again, of that playful child inside of us often with a mature sophisticated flare. You will find a beautiful array of glass bead jewelry, as well as metal work with detailed sterling silver characters, and for the more playful there are unique and colourful screen-printed glass pieces. There is something here for everyone and is certainly a lovely shop to snoop around in and fall in love with. 
So fall in love with Mar Mar! And, now, before I get to the giveaway details, a little interview with Mark Poulin of Mar Mar…


*********************************************

Tell us a bit about your work.
I love to take a drawing from my sketchbook and transform it into an object: A simple charm necklace, fun glass cartoon earrings, colorful enamels, wall prints, or greeting cards. I'm all over the board..I love simple and modern one day, cute and colorful the next. Whatever the final product, I use my experience as a metalsmith and enamelist along with my passion for design and color to create a piece that I hope you will treasure forever.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration in the art world. I love looking at paintings and drawings and have a really wide taste in what grabs my interest. I love watching the art unfold from the hands of painters like Yoshitomo Nara http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshitomo_Nara but I am also inspired by painters like Richard Diebenkorn. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Diebenkorn. That's a pretty wide range!
What is your favorite item you have ever made?
 I'm so not a favorite person. It's always changing! Possibly from my short attention span. Right now I love this little tree sloth that I have in my etsy store. http://www.etsy.com/listing/78585734/tree-sloth
If you had all the money in the world, what handmade item would you buy?
I love rings. When you wear one it likes eye candy all day.  Deciding which one to buy would make me crazy but today I would but this one: http://www.clay-pot.com/TODD-REED-Double-Row-Uncut-Diamond-Band.html
Random fact?
 I lived in a tent on the beach in Alaska one summer and had a job pulling fish guts out of salmon. So gross and so many weird dreams.
Best piece of advice for life in general?
Find a partner that makes you laugh! And make them laugh back.

  42. Oh Please, please!!!
    It has to be the sloth by far!

    I actually squealed with delight when I came across this giveaway (TRULY, My Man laughed and laughed). I know it might be a little odd, but sloths are my favourite animal. One of the reasons we travelled to Costa Rica many years ago, was to see as many of these gorgeous creatures as we could. The babies especially are magical, heart warming, perfect little beings.

    Mark's work is wonderfully whimsical. Thanks for pointing us in his direction.
