Handmade Pick of the Week


This week I am featuring the work of Atlanta artist, illustrator and humorist, Rebecca Salcedo. She specializes in original paintings, custom pet portraits, prints and other handmade items. She is also a writer and a musician. She's an amazingly creative and talented person!

Last month I was the winner of her facebook giveaway! Boy, was I lucky! I received one of her original ACEO paintings along with one of her handmade notebooks. I also received a magnet with her adorable Flying Ace beagle on it. I love those sweet beagle eyes!

You can enjoy her work on note cards, prints, or original fine art paintings. There is a bit of humor in many of her works, but she is so versatile as an artist that everyone is bound to find something they like.

She also creates great, quality notebooks out of recycled and re-purposed materials. They are completely hand cut and bound by hand. I gave my 15 year old niece the Twilight notebook that I won. She loves to draw, and of course she is a huge Twilight fan!

Thank you Rebecca for the great prizes! Be sure to check out Rebecca's work in her two Etsy shops. You can find her artwork at and her notebooks at

Be sure to follow her on facebook as well. She is currently finishing up her series 31 Rhinos in 31 Days. You can follow this amazing series, and learn a little something about art along the way on her blog,
