Once again, a delightfully original concept. Andria, you seem to find inspiration everywhere.
Poison.
I have always enjoyed collecting ACEOs as that is a way to have wonderful original art available to send or share. This mixed media is rich in concept and skill. I found many more when I visited the shop.
Colored pencil work from allkindsofart is an excellent example of this demanding medium. Colored pencil work is vibrant and capable of such varied style in the hands of an exceptional artist such as this one. The technique is also very time consuming. Great works in the shop. And.. I have to admit the Wednesday return address labels struck my fancy.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I am now thinking Christmas gift ideas and I saw many in this selection.

Thanks again Andria for taking the time to find these picks for all of us.

Thank you all for your comments!

Colleen makes a really good point about clicking on these shops to have a closer look. I tend to look at the entire shop before featuring an artist, because I want to see a body of work that gives credence to the particular creation being featured in one of my articles. Thus, in nearly all cases you will find lots more intriguing work if you have the time to browse the inventory of an artist who catches your eye here.
