Giveaway from Fresh Picked Whimsy

When I saw Lori McDonough's art for the first time, it made me happy.
I love her blog.  She is so down to earth, creative, friendly, and real.
I went over to her etsy shop and ordered this print right away for my art room:
(it's one of my favorite quotes ever, and her illustrations are tooooo cute! )


I got it framed, but I'm thinking the frame needs to be painted a bright crazy color.  Lime green maybe?


Lori even illustrates all of her envelopes that go out for her etsy orders.
I am giving her major props for that!


Lucky for you, Lori agreed to do a give-away here!
Any 8 x 10 print that is in her shop...  There are a lot of choices, so run over there and check it out.


To win, all you have to do is leave me comment.
I will pick a winner this Friday.  :)
Thanks Lori, for sharing your creativity.  You are an inspiration!

Well these are just wonderful. The one you picked is perfect for you! I liked many of them especially "Here comes the Sun". I saw some others that would be perfect graduation gifts!

Alexis said...

Lime green for sure! Would love one of her prints. :)

Kali said...

I love the "Jesus loves me this I know..." one...perfect since that's the bedtime song at our house.

Krista said...

"Welcome to the Circus" would definetly be fitting for our house! I sometimes think, especially in the evenings when all 4 kiddos are going strong, that there must be a hidden camera somewhere. Like Candid Camera or something as the sounds and traffic in and out of our kitchen make it seem like a circus! But of course a blessed circus :)

I love Lori's work! My son just read the "Trust God and Know you are exactly where you are meant to be" this morning and his timing was impeccable. Esp for a 5 year old :)

Michelle Momper said...

Lori's work is like getting a temporary IV drip full of sunshine. Without the needle. And the bill at the end of the month. Bonus? She has brought my eye to your blog! Double dose of happy for the day!

The black looks good...it makes all the colors pop. But lime green is another good option.

Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!

Oh my gosh. Cute stuff. I agree with you. Painting the frame a crazy, bold color will make it pop even more. I love it.
