ANDEEdesigns - The Perfect Personalized Present


02/08 Buy Handmade, Make Someone Happy
Special Feature


Today I would like you to meet the TOP WINNER of the Favorite Undiscovered Studios contest for the month of February. This studio is filled with perfect personalized gifts for anyone who has someone or something close to their heart. Why perfect? Because a picture speaks a thousand words, and a photo of a loved someone or something sends those words straight to the heart!

How many people have received frames upon frames of pictures as gifts? Well, yes, now we have those fancy digital frames with moving images, but still. It's all the same thing. Wouldn't you love to be able to surprise someone, or even yourself, with something different? Enter andeedesigns' studio.

Let's see. Valentine's Day is around the corner and my DH has the same old picture in his wallet. It's really looking ragged from all the years of being transferred from wallet to wallet :) Well, look at that, andeedesigns has a section with gifts for Men and that personalized keychain would SO solve the ragged photo problem. Or maybe the business card holder. Both great choices! (Sealed and scratch free too!)

How about a gift for your sweetheart? If you think a picture of yourself would be too much at this stage in your relationship, how about a drawing you made for her, like a heart. Or her favorite rock star. Or a picture of your new AWESOME car. Or her favorite pet... Have an idea? Contact the artisan :)

Oh, and Mother's day! What better gift for a mother than a custom photo pendant or bracelet of her kids? Now she won't ever have to whip out those photos from her purse again. She won't even need to show them to anyone because people will ask about the jewelry: "Are those your kids? They are beautiful!" and the conversation about kids can start just like that :) Oh wait! There's also a purse hanger, how cool is THAT?!

Ok, I'll stop LOL. I think the idea is pretty clear. If it can be made into an image, it can be made into a Perfect Personalized Present by andeedesigns :)

I encourage you to contact the artisan above if you see an item you love, even if just to let them know how much you enjoy their work. Share your favorites in the comments section, and twitter, plurk, blog, etc. if you find something you like!

Make sure you also check their bio for a cute story on how the name ANDEE came to be. OH! And before I forget, they have a sale going on right now where you can get a necklace half-price if you buy something else at regular price. Like you could get a purse key finder and a necklace for $35, or a cell phone charm and a necklace for $25. Pretty cool!

andeedesigns's studio sections are:

Necklaces
Bracelets
Men's
Accessories

andeedesigns's Lowest priced item is $10. The highest priced item is $35.

Here is a favorite example of their work, from their gallery (image links to the Necklaces category):

What is YOUR favorite item from this shop? Will you gain the bragging rights of being their first sale? :)

Comments section is open for gushing and bragging :) Please proceed! :)

February Winners - Amazing Undiscovered Studios

Oh boy! What a month! It must be the month of LOVE ;)

Not only did we get an all time record in voter participation, but there are also three shops who've had their first sale during the poll! And that is only for the February shops. There were TEN undiscovered shops getting their first sale this past week! You can see the whole list of alumni, as well as shops that are still undiscovered in this thread.

Usually I try to run the promoting and poll as a surprise Random Act of Kindness, but this month was a little different. For past polls, a few people have mentioned they didn't vote because there were too many choices and it would have taken too long to check them all out, so this month I tried to decrease the number of choices in the poll and have a separate page for the whole list of undiscovered studios. That way those lacking time could still vote, and those who wanted to discover more beauty could still check all 24 recently submitted studios.

I COULD have gone the surprise way and used random.org to randomly pick 10 shops out of the 24, but I thought it would be more fair if there was some sort of advantage for the shops who are actively tending to their studio and want to be seen. Now the best way I could think of doing that was to pick a time most people are likely to check their email and send a message out. The first ones to post in the forum or PM me would then be added to the poll. Still random, but with a healthy dose of luck added in :)

The studios answering after the poll filled up were to be entered in a random drawing for regular features during the week the poll would run. I was hoping that would have made it less sad for those who answered later in the day. In fact, since only 15 out of the 24 studios responded, all 5 studios who didn't get into the poll got featured during the 02/01-02/07 week and one of them even had their first sale!

I felt uncomfortable sending out so many emails, so not sure what I'll be doing next month, but nonetheless it was fun to see such an amazing response to the poll call. It only took one hour and 31 minutes for the poll to fill up!! And from the poll results, it looks like some studios have even mobilized their friends and fans to support them! Which is great since that is the first step to promoting :)

This month we also brought back the widget used last December and five artisans have installed it on their sites, supporting this month's undiscovered studios. Thank you!

We also had a #FollowFriday feature for people who have shown their support by being the first ones to tweet the poll. Thank you @hillcountrycoll @cre8urname @TheHobbyRoom @valmade @tadasanatribal @sotocapmania @natashasuter @danilavdesigns @SSSpix @momwithahook!! There were more tweets later, these are just the first ones. You are all wonderful!

There are many more kind souls who have supported this month's undiscovered studios, be it by being their first customer, by bumping the poll threads, by letting their IRL friends know about the poll, or many other beautiful ways to show their love. To all, a big heartfelt THANK YOU! You have made a lot of artisans happy!

Since this month I used a new poll engine, I couldn't build the cute timelapse video of the poll, but you can see how it would look in last month's post. It's VERY cool to see your votes breathe life into the poll! It looks alive, doesn't it? It looks very musical too, almost like an MP3 player display :)

Onto the poll results... we had an astonishing 84 voters this month, 27 voters more than the previous record. While we didn't break the record for first sales during a poll, we still got 3 new discovered studios. How wonderful! A poll where everyone can entertain new visitors, where everyone is a WINNER!

So here is the list of WINNERS for February:

The TOP FIVE WINNERS will be featured on my blog starting Monday February 8th, and the TOP WINNER ~ andeedesigns ~ will get a special promotion and a surprise gift :)

Since the features are reserved for studios with 0 sales the morning of, mini-features about other poll participants who are still undiscovered may also be posted this week ~ to replace the DS (discovered studios). (One extra studio was discovered before their feature).

The poll is over, but that doesn't mean you can't mention your favorites. That is what the comments are for :)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

But before I go my merry way, here is a preview from andeedesigns's studio:

Isn't this a wonderful gift idea for someone who has everything (including a bunch of lovely grandchildren)?
