Blog Giveaway from Etsy Featured Seller: Meet Silja of 5erg.etsy.com

Meet Silja of 5erg.etsy.com, a very talented artist indeed!

How did you get interested in what you create?
Someone left me in a room with paper and a pencil. What was wrong with them? I am struggling with my drawing habit ever since :)

What is the last book you read?
I have one in the half way. It is a historical novel about a man who escaped a train to prison camp in the World War 2.
It is "Metsõun" by Arnold Õun.

If we looked in your refrigerator right now, what would we see?
Margarine, 3 eggs, jar of cranberries and salmon. It looks like not much in our house is here to pile up in the fridge. Hm.

What is your favorite quote?
I can't say it here! Maybe I can. No I can't. Well, it is from a comedy called Orgazmo and it involves unicorns.
I also love Cartman and Dwight Schrute quotes.


As part of her feature, Silja has GRACIOUSLY agreed to give away a set of 2 oil color art cards!

Here is how YOU can win this set of cards, a value of $24.00!!!

1. Visit 5erg.etsy.com, Silja's etsy shop online!

2. Choose two of your favorite items in her shop.

3. Post your favorites here from 11/24-12/8 by 11:59 e.s.t pm

Ahoy Matey,

The Creamy Glass Pearls with Pink Quartz memory wire bracelet is a mermaid's dream, very pretty and pearly and would match swimmingly with her aqua tail and scales, and long flowing red hair! Aye, aye, it's a treasure!...Love the "mermaid's eye" cards also, that's what they seem to me!

My two favorites would have to be the City bird original pencil aceo and the jellyfish 3 original aceo. All her pieces have tremendous character!
