Petite Lemon {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I really had a ball putting together a baby room for the first time.  I spent hours and hours deciding on a theme, looking for the right fabric, sewing up bumpers and curtains, and looking for just the right toys and wall art.  Now that “Rocket” isn’t the baby anymore, and he’s been kicked out into his own new room, I get to do it all over again!  Who knew hunting down bedroom décor for toddlers could be just as fun as for babies!?

Petite Lemon has some of the CUTEST gifts and room décor for kids of all ages!  I am really in love with these personalized growth charts!  How cute to have your child be able to see how they grow!
And then there’s these t-shirts.  Get a load of these really fantastic colors and designs:

I fell for these personalized alphabet posters, and thought one of these would be oh so cute in my boy’s room.

We picked out the “On the Go” poster in Blue to go with a car quilt my sister-in-law made him.  The printing is EXCELLENTLY done!  The colors are so vibrant, and each of the letters has so much detail.  I glued our poster onto a piece of foam board, and as it dried on our table, my husband kept commenting how clean and professional it looked.  We both really really love it in our boy’s room.

These pictures are so fun, and just perfect for a little boy!  I’ve caught my boy staring at all the different ‘things that go’ when I’ve gone in to check on him some nights.
IMG_4829
I think this poster could also go well with all sorts of bedroom decor.  There are the right colors in it to really compliment any color scheme, and the personalized name at the bottom makes this such a great gift–even as a baby shower gift!  So many of Petite Lemon’s cute things would make adorable baby keepsakes!

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!

When I left home for college, I looked forward to moving into an apartment that allowed pets so I could get a sweet baby bird.  I finally got my wish, and I’ve had two pretty parakeets light up our living room with sweet chirping and playful antics over the last two years. Well, after an unfortunate series of holiday vacation events, I’m birdless once again, darn it.  How coincidental that I came across some sweet little bird wall decals from Dali Wall Decals when I needed them most!

I went straight to the “animals” section, and picked out some tiny white Mini Birds – Set of 10 (for only $10!) for my kitchen appliances!

IMG_1821

I LOVE how they turned out!  So easy to apply, and crisp as ever.

IMG_1823

Then I also picked out these Simple and Cute Mod Birds – Set of 12 for $15!  I think these are adorable sitting on top of picture frames, or in this case, two love birds on top of our board of mushy love notes and pictures from when we were dating 🙂

IMG_1826

Wall decals are one of my favorite ways to decorate.  I love that they are only semi-permanent to satisfy the landlords, and I love how clean and crisp they come out–a look that is hard to achieve with a paintbrush.  I also love that the whole process can be done in minutes!

Dali Decals has a great thing going.  There were quite a few things that I noticed that puts them a step above other vinyl art companies.  First of all, everything arrived in a very sturdy triangular poster mailing box.  Nothing folded, wrinkled, or bent.  I appreciate the practice decal they sent me to make sure I know what I’m doing!  My cute little practice flower went up on my vanity mirror :).  Dali Decals also sent a little squeegee card to help with flattening and adhering the decals.  Along with everything came the most detailed instructions with pictures, steps, guidance, encouragement, tips and tricks!

Here is a coupon code for our readers!  Dandy5off will get you 5% off with no minimum purchase necessary.

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!

In the home where I grew up, my parents put up a “Return with Honor” plaque on our front door.  You can just barely see it in this picture of me as a high school senior.  I wasn’t exactly a rebellious teenager, but I know I caused my parents a fair amount of grief and worry my Senior year.  Boyfriends, curfew, blah blah blah 🙂 I often remember reading that message on my way out the door, and appreciate the reminder it gave me to come back proud of my actions that day.

Because it helped me in my teenage years, I wanted that same “goodbye message” above our door for our boys (and myself!) to help us all remember to go out to do good things in the world, and come back home with honor!

I knew when I saw this “Return with Honor” vinyl quote from Vinyl Disorder, that it would be great for our home.  I can’t wait to put it up!

Vinyl Disorder carries so many fun customizable products!  So many things I haven’t even thought of, like decals for boats, mirrors, windows, band instruments, dirt bikes , skateboards, etc.  They use quality vinyl, with a 6+ year outdoor life.  Here are some of my favorite ideas, which would be great gift options!

Mailbox Lettering:

Glow in the dark stickers:

And custom apparel:

Plus, their selection of wall quotes/art is the largest I have EVER EVER seen.  You could get lost for hours looking up all the options!  Go see all of their options HERE for wall quotes.

The winner will receive any one thing their heart desires from Vinyl Disorder up to 36″!  Anything!

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!
