One thing I love about Etsy is that it is an international community. Joanne of CoconutPalmDesigns is a Canadian living in Belize and uses Belizean hard or soft woods in her designs. She creates ACEOs which are small (by definition they must be 2.5" x 3.5") pieces of art. ACEOs are a great way to get original pieces of art that won't break your budget. You can also find handmade signs in her shop which she'll gladly customize for you. I happen to love the idea of ACEO's and here is my current favorite from CoconutPalmDesigns - Red Rose. Of course since I love to garden so it's not a total surprise that I love one of her florals.
If you want to see more of Joanne's creations the be sure to visit her Etsy store - coconutpalmdesigns. If you want to find out more about what she's doing and planning then be sure to visit her blog.
