Happy 1 Year Anniversary of the Blog + a Giveaway! (closed)

LetteringGiveawayHoly Moley. Hard to believe it’s been an entire year since I began this blog and even harder to believe I just used the phrase “holy moley.” What started as a way to share side projects and random thoughts has turned into so much more throughout the course of a year. While it seems I wrote my first post only yesterday, a blog certainly demonstrates just how quickly we change as individuals both personally and professionally. Topics deviate, style shifts, it’s been a journal, a portfolio, and a social network. It evolves everyday and I can’t wait to see where it goes for years to come. You have all been so incredibly supportive whether you may be active participants in the blogging community or my silent yet regular readers. I’m so thankful for each and every one of you and the opportunities and relationships this blog has made possible.
So as a small token of my gratitude, I’m giving away a hand painted lettering design to one of my amazing readers with the message of their choice. To enter, simply comment below with how you would like your note to read and I will create a one-of-a-kind piece just for you. Please keep messages 10 words or less (the chalkboard is only 17″x14″) and will I will make sure the work is properly preserved and ready for shipping! The drawing will close Friday, August 8th at 11:59 pm and the winner will be announced at the bottom of this post. Open to all international readers!
You’re all incredible and inspire me in all I do. I wish I could create something for each of you personally but I’m not to sure my hands and eyes would cooperate much past 50 or so. Thank you for being supportive and patient with me. It’s been a wild ride but I can’t wait to see what’s around the next turn…

(Congratulations Kelsey Herideen on being our lucky winner this round!)

    Congrats on your blog birthday!! :)

    I’d love to win and my favourite saying is: I’ll see it when I believe it.

    I’m from Germany though, would shipping be too expensive in that case?

    Ooh I have to think! Oh God I can’t! Of course I can’t lol! How about “dream on dreamer” or “f*** it, let’s go to new york” I suppose if I win, I’ll let you decide on one of them. Then again, maybe I’ll conjure up something even better lol! Oh and congrats on the 1 year!

    happy blog birthday!
    I adore your typography and would be absolutely thrilled to win! (if it’s open internationally, that is).

    I think I would have to go with the quote from the movie UP “Adventure is out there”. I need to remind myself to go seek adventures, because I quite happily spend whole days reading books and blogs >_>

    Congrats on the one-year blog birthday! So exciting! :)

    And such a cool giveaway! I think I would have to go with “darling, let’s go be adventurers,” which is a quote that resonates for both my husband and myself.

    I would love to hang this in my dorm room! I like the quotes “wherever you are be all there.”
    Or “Every song ends but that’s no reason not to enjoy the music.”
    Or “somebody told me that this is the place where everything’s better and everything’s safe.”
    You choose :)

    This is so sweet! I’d love it to say “where you go, I go and where you stay, i’ll stay”. Such a sweet idea and happy blog birthday!
