art + a giveaway!

UPDATE: The Giveaway has closed!  I got approximately TWO entries and therefore instead of generating a winner – I’m going to send each winner one print!

Several months ago I shared our amazing customized “road trip” print from January Jones Prints.  At that time, I also mentioned that I had bought two more prints from the same etsy seller.  Today (finally) I’m going to share them with you!

Aren’t they amazing?!  They live in our bathroom and I find them totally inspiring.   The quote is a Henry David Thoreau quote that reminds me, every single day, to “live the life I’ve imagined”.

The California map is the first print in January Jones Prints’ ‘the CA Project’ – a collection of typographic maps of the United States.  The California map’s job in life is to make me think of California, which makes me happy.

The (awesome) frames are from Marshalls, I picked them up for the amazing price of $7.99 each when we were in La Qunita.  Pretty sweet deal, hey?  One day, they are going to form part of an epic gallery wall with a whole bunch of diverse white frames, a la YHL.  But for now, they make me smile when I am brushing my teeth.

And now for the GIVEAWAY! My very first giveaway ever! Do you need some inspiration? Do you dream of California? Can you imagine these prints gracing the walls of your home?  If yes, I’ve got a second set of prints (long story) and I want to give them away to one lucky blog reader!  So, if you are interested in winning a set of amazing prints from January Jones Prints, leave a comment on this post by the end of the day, Thursday, June 2, telling me what you would do with these prints!  If you want an extra entry into the draw (and who doesn’t?!) follow me on Google Friend Connect (or subscribe and leave me a second comment telling me you’ve done so).  It’s a sad, empty little friend connect over there –>  (my only friend is myself.  How sad.) So, it could use some filling up!  I’ll randomly pick a winner on Friday, June 3.  It’s very very exciting!

  1. The Thoreau quote would definitely go right next to my bed, so it’ll be the first thing I see each morning to inspire me for the day ahead, and the last thing I see at night to put my mind at ease that I’m doing the right thing by pursuing my dreams.

    With the California map, I’d put it right next to one of my windows (not sure which) to remind me of sunny days in sunny places on those days when Vancouver’s rain starts to get me down.

  2. I’d hang them on the walls of *my* bathroom in Vancouver and they would make Jordan and I smile while we brushed our teeth. ;-)
