Artsy Couture {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

The wedding is in two weeks!!  I’m so excited for my little brother!  Though I haven’t met my future sister-in-law yet, I’m sure that we’ll soon be the best of friends :).  I’ve been trying to come up with the perfect wedding gift for them–something personal, something that looks expensive, and something that is clearly not re-gifted!  All the lightbulbs went on when I saw all the breathtaking displays of photography and artwork created by Artsy Couture!

I’m sure that along with me, you have fallen in love with the wrapped canvas look for displaying pictures in your home.  I have never been a fan of chunky mis-matched (and breakable) frames with the glass in front.  They just seem too bulky and heavy, and I can never find enough of a frame I like to make everything in the house match.  For years now, I’ve tried to do away with frames and mod-podge photographs onto foamboard to try and get the wrapped canvas look, but I’m afraid its still a little too homemade.  Sometimes homemade doesn’t cut it, and the only way to go is the real thing, and these wrapped canvases and gallery blocks from Artsy Couture are to die for!

I ordered a trio of gallery blocks using my brother’s engagement pictures, and they are the PERFECT wedding gift!  I can’t wait to see them on the walls of their future home.

You almost have to see these in person to really appreciate the quality of these gallery blocks.  They have a high quality wood structure behind and practically seamless joined corners. IMG_2746 copy

If you are a professional photographer, or have a budding photography business, you need to get hooked up with Artsy Couture.  The products you could offer your clients would be breathtaking, and the ordering process is so simple.  Ordering my photo gallery blocks was a breeze–pretty much upload, select, paste, resize, and I was done.  I looked into the process of creating a photo cube, and the layout was not as difficult as you might make it out to be.  The ordering process can be a little intimidating without Photoshop experience, but there are great directions and guidance along the way.

One stunning way to display your pictures is in this floating gallery block style–a series of smaller gallery blocks floating over a larger gallery block background.  So professional, right?

Besides these gallery blocks, I also love these photo cubes!  What a fun way to display pictures!  I think these would look adorable in a nursery, and still classy enough to have stacked in a living room entertainment center.

Artsy Couture carries so many more fashionable options for displaying your art, including pro prints, sweet colorful frames, gallery stands, and don’t forget these picture perfect photo books!

You all remember how we did a total overhaul on our kitchen a couple of years ago?  I think I mentioned it once or twice.  We took it from this:

To this:

  

With the help of our contractor.  😉

 

But you know what is missing?  A ceiling that looks like this:

That is the work of Decorative Ceiling Tiles and I sooooo need some ceiling tiles like that in my kitchen!

The tiles they offer are so unique:

A while ago the people at Decorative Ceiling Tiles sent me a single copper medallion tile to demonstrate how great their tiles are.  It’s fantastically beautiful and I know that it will make a mighty fine craft project.  I just haven’t decided yet how to utilize it into a craft.  Ideas?  Suggestions?  You tell me what to do and I’ll attempt to do it!  🙂

 

I was given a single ceiling tile from Decorative Ceiling Tiles, but all opinions are strictly my own.

Oh what’s in a name!  I already know I might sound a little crazy when I tell you that I constantly stew over what to name my future children.  Half the time when I can’t sleep, I play around with middle names in my head till I fall asleep.  I think a name is so important, and the first gift you can give your child!  I want it to be something I will love saying a million times, and something THEY will love hearing a million times.  Once its official, I am a sucker for any opportunity to display that name anywhere and everywhere, and Craft Cuts is one of the classiest places to do just that!

What is so incredible about this store is their ability to cut out wood lettering in practically any font your heart desires.  From cutesy curly girly fonts, to strong statement letters, you can design just the look you want for your room or bedroom.

Classy block letters for the family room!

I LOVE these letters on ribbons!  Adorable for a bedroom above a crib, or also quaint for living room décor above a couch.

And a personal favorite, wood wall letter tiles!!

What a treasure trove of supplies for artsy people looking to personalize their home!  Anyone with a creative bone in their body will have a ball perusing this shop, but if you don’t consider yourself very artsy-fartsy, Craft Cuts can certainly do all this leg work for you!  You can purchase any name already hand-painted, pre-stained, and tied with ribbon if you desire!  They really allow you to be completely creative with their blank letters, but they also can take care of you if anything in the crafty department makes you nervous, and you’d rather have it professionally done for you.

We had the huge honor of picking out some letters for our home.  I decided I wanted to make a sign of our last name to have on display in our home for as long as we live.  Though Craft Cuts can definitely design your name on a board for you (as seen here with their lettering on a base), we wanted to put it together ourselves, so I just ordered the letters individually and unpainted.  As soon as my letters arrived, I was DYING to put them together!

Here is the hubby marking things just right before we drilled them into the board to keep them steady. 

I turned on a little Dancing with the Stars and painted them up with basic tempera paint and a polyurethane gloss.  Easy peasy.

I am SO SATISFIED and thrilled about the way it turned out!  Classic, professional, and something that will always be on display.

Now I just need some holiday company over to see our majestic addition to our home décor!

Craft Cuts has quite an extensive selection of so many more products besides wood lettering.  Check out their craft kits, home decor, vinyl wall lettering, and stencils!

Get ready to get your crafty face on because one winner will receive a $30 giftcard to Craft Cuts!

I have a dear friend who I so admire as someone who follows her dreams!  She does what she loves, follows her heart, and is always the first to rsvp to the silly parties we throw.  She has come to my rescue more than a dozen times, and I might be one of her biggest fans of her new Etsy shop that just opened last week!!

Emily makes all her pillows herself, from her adorable little Boston apartment.  The images are screen printed with fabric safe ink, have zippers along the bottom seam, and they are cute, cute, cute!

If you love her pillows too, you have to act fast because Emily is doing a giveaway for these first three pillows, and it ends TONIGHT!  Run over to her website HERE and enter her giveaway!!

I like to think of myself as an artist, though certainly an amateur.  I at least can genuinely appreciate quality artwork and recognize the time and talent that goes into certain pieces.  I get excited about art museums and art exhibits, and I think art in general has a special way of communicating and reaching out and expressing messages and words.  In particular, I am fascinated by this beautiful collection of artwork at Society 6, which is created by thousands of artists from around the world!  Artists can partner with Society 6 and are able to sell their artwork as quality art prints, iPhone cases, t-shirts, stretched canvases, and laptop skins!

Basically artists post their artwork, and Society 6 produces and ships their products.  And what a collection!!

I spend literally over an hour browsing through all the artwork, trying to decide what laptop skin to choose for Patty II!  Here were some of my favorites:

Ultimately, I went with a seamstress favorite:

Go check out the incredible art work at Society 6 and pick out something beautiful, symbolic, or expressive for your own home!

Inspire Your Walls

When we first moved to Boston, I knew some vinyl wall art was the first thing our apartment needed to make it our own.  I love that vinyl wall décor is such a great option for renters like us, who don’t have the liberties to permanently alter the walls and stairwells, but want to badly to change things up a bit, or personalize the space that is now our lovely home!

Inspire Your Walls is a lovely shop of charming art decals!  I have the privilege of personally knowing Hollie, the owner and designer, and I know that anything she does, she does it well and efficiently!  I’m currently sewing her an ottoman cover she designed, while she is helping me add some cute details to our home! Namely these little duck decals:

As soon as I saw this Three Little Ducks decal, I knew it would be perfect!  If you’ve been to Boston, you know that in Boston Commons, there are these bronze duck statues depicting the mallard ducks in Make Way for Ducklings who decided to raise their family in the Boston Public Garden.  (Here are my boys and their cousins last week on the ducks!)  How thrilled I was so see a vinyl set of ducks for our walls!  Perfectly Boston, and perfect for our kids’ rooms!  Thank you Inspire Your Walls!

Here are some more stickers I think are just darling!  A mess-free pet fish!  Haha, this is the kind of pet I can agree with.

A growth chart that stays in its place and looks so much more professional that pencil markings!

And chalkboard blocks!  Genius!  A place for notes and memos any where you’d like!

And here’s a personal favorite of mine.  Sometimes I really get worked up and anxious over silly things, so I’ve been having to tell myself to calm down, take a breather, and chill!  I’m going to display this up in my sewing room, so that when I start to freak out about tricky seamstress jobs, rush orders, or picky clients, I have a visual reminder to just keep on keeping on and everything will be just fine!

Have you fallen in love with Inspire Your Walls yet?  A lucky winner is going to receive: any item of their choice up to $50!

I love to throw parties.  Now I’m not much of a dinner party kind of thrower.  Those get too complicated for me.  Too much planning and too much food.  I like to throw snack kind of parties.  Oh and dessert parties aren’t bad either!  😉  My group of friend and I here in the Lou like to get together about once a month for a girl’s night.  Typically every girl’s night involves some type of food.  Usually it’s dessert food, because we are ladies and that’s what ladies like to splurge on.  Am I right?  But…  A dessert that we have never had at our girl’s night is this yumminess:

 I have a feeling that is going to have to change very soon!

I mean seriously…

My mouth is watering just looking at these images!

Yep I definitely am going to tell the girls we need to have a fondue party!

Shellie Eldredge is an Independent Consultant for Velata and she’s the go to girl for all things fondue.  How could anyone go wrong with one of these dandy looking fondue warmers:

They are colorful, functional, and there’s a style to fit any decor.  Great for yourself or gift giving… You gotta contact Shellie to order and while you are at it you can even book to host a party!  I’m telling you this looks like a really fun way to fondue.

And…

Hello Belgian Chocolate!

My Banjo loves his baby sister.  So much so that he refers to her as his baby.  Whenever we are out in public he likes to tell random strangers that he has a baby.  Then he proudly points to her and says, “Her name is baby Ruby”.  It’s ever so cute.  So….  Want to see a picture of some really cute siblings (who really love each other) chilling out on a really cute blanket?

Here they are:

Okay.  So this blanket isn’t just cute.  It’s gorgeous.

It’s compliments of Minky Couture and by far the best blanket we own.  It hangs out with us in the family room and really adds to the decorum.  Plus, it’s sooooo soft and comfy.  Yep it was an instant favorite around here and we might have just fought over it a few times already…  😉

 One very lucky, lucky winner is going to receive this Jaclyn Infant Blanket:

 From Minky Couture, of course!

Decorating Ruby’s room has been a dream.  There’s just something about all thing decor for baby girls.  Don’t get me wrong.  It was fun decorating the nursery for Banjo, but decorating for a baby girl is just so sweet and cutesy!  Maybe it’s because I’m a girl and deep down I like girly things.  Even though I’m not that much of a pink gal.  Too much exposure to the color in childhood gave it a bad wrap in my mind.  I’ll admit that I’m slowly warming to the idea of dressing Ruby in pinks.  Although for her room I didn’t want anything pink.  So maybe I’m not quite to that point of being fully accepting of the color pink.  😉  I knew right away that the color combination of gray and yellow would be perfect for her room, because I love the color yellow.  In terms of decor we also wanted a room that didn’t scream baby, so it could in fact grow with her.  Who wants to decorate over and over throughout childhood???  So I chose a bird theme that I thought would be perfect for a nursery, but also in a little girl’s room.  The challenge was the one wall that we selected to leave white behind her crib.  How ever was I going to tie the room color in on that wall without being overbearing?  Enter the cutest wall vinyl that I ever did spy:

That cuteness is from Chickadee Vinyl and I was able to order it in the colors of my choosing.

It looks so adorable in my little bird’s room:

Thank you Chickadee Vinyl!

At Chickadee Vinyl you will find so many different kinds of wall vinyl from elegant:

Chickadee Vinyl also has wall decor perfect for any living space in your home.
