the DESIGN shop by Rae Ann Kelly | a giveaway, hooray!

The giveaway is closed! The winner is Florence, who said, "It's a tough choice, but I think I'd go with "go play outside" and "be brave". Congratulations, Florence! 

Last week I read a post on one of my favorite blogs by Rae Ann Kelly about the new prints she has for sale in her etsy shop. I clicked around for a while, imagining where I might put a few of them in our home. I love simple designs, especially black and white, so Rae's prints are right up my alley. Then I saw her instagram post a little while later and found out that Rae was interested in doing a few giveaways and was looking for people to host them, so I sent her an email asap! I got to pick out two prints from her shop and so will one of you! As you can see, I chose the hooray flags and the rise and shine posters. I had the spot for the hooray flags picked out before they arrived - it replaced a silhouette of Ezra that I asked Matt to make a few years ago, but it had some water damage and couldn't be repaired, so I was happy to have something else to put in the frame. Now the rise and shine print is another story... I couldn't decide if I should be selfish and put it in my own room or if I should add it to the collection of wall art in Ezra's room. Well, Finn saw the print and couldn't stop smiling and pointing to the sweet little sleeping heart so I decided to hang it where he could easily see it, right next to their bed. Finn only sleeps in there part time for now, but eventually they'll always share the room so it felt like the right spot. Visit my instagram account if you'd like to see how it looks! I forgot to snap a picture earlier to include in this post. Anyway, now it's one of the last things he sees before we turn off the lights each night and it's the cutest :)

So what do you think?! If these prints put a smile on your face and you'd like to call a couple your own, head over to the DESIGN shop and then come back here to leave a comment telling me which two prints you like the most. Rae has generously offered two prints (one 5x7 and one 8x10) to one winner which I'll randomly select at the end of the day on Thursday and announce on Friday. There's a fun bonus that Rae sends along with every order, too - cute little popsicle stick puppets that Ezra and Finn had fun decorating pretty much the minute after I opened the package or else I would have taken a picture. Ezra even gave me his popsicle stick puppet for Mother's Day and I love it :) Anyway, I wish you all good luck! Can't wait to see what everyone's favorite prints are.

  1. Tough decision! Go play outside and lets be adventurers

  2. I love "Be Brave" (fear of the dark is a current point of discussion in our household) and "happy little campers." beautiful designs and thanks for the giveaway!

  3. "Happy little campers" and "let's be adventurers" are my favorites! Although they are all adorable.

  4. I like the hooray flags, too -- and #shenanigans is pretty darn funny. : )

  5. It's a tough choice, but I think I'd go with "go play outside" and "be brave".
    (PS this is Florence. I'm not sure if I logged in correctly.)

  6. I like be brave and shake it off. Great reminders especially for kids who may have been through rough situations to be encouraged that they can make it through.

  7. She has some really cute designs. I would choose the shake it off print along with the pink #shenanigans. Fun!
