I had the opportunity to become familiar with Novica's site and their products. One of their most inspiring - and fun - and addictive features is the curation section. Curation allows you to put together products and images as part of a gallery to showcase items you enjoy. It reminds me a lot of Pinterest, actually, and it allows you to search out the site and "curate" items you want part of your collection.
For this special occasion, I made a curation gallery entitled, "A Writer's Supply Closet." Here's a screen shot of what I put together -
The items you can find on this site are incredible! I can spend hours - and several hundred dollars - on this site alone. They have lamps, notebooks, kites, and even really pretty silver pendant necklaces I couldn't resist perusing. If you do purchase through the site, I must say that I highly recommend it because not only are the products amazing, the shipping prices are incredible too.
I also love that you can purchase a loan for the artists that Novica features. It's a way of contributing to a better lifestyle for artists around the world and making yourself feel warm and fuzzy inside. Isn't that a great feeling?
So, take time today to take a look at this site - and create your own curation page! I'd love to see what you put together.
I'm also excited to announce that I am giving away a $50 certificate to Novica for an item of your choice!
