giveaway . custom watercolour portrait

8 Apr

the second i found uh oh my deer on etsy (via some random instagram creeping), i knew two things: 1) i needed some of kate’s art in my life, and 2) i needed to share it with you! luckily enough, kate was on board with both of these ideas :)

as you may have seen this weekend, i love our custom family portrait so much i couldn’t wait the extra two days to share it with you all and had to share it on saturday. and now it’s your turn to enter to win one of your own of the people you love.

three ways to enter (each comment counts as one entry):
1. leave a comment below with who you’d include in your portrait and why they’re awesome.
2. ‘favourite’ the uh oh my deer shop on etsy, and comment to let me know.
3. and lastly, because i likely would never have stumbled upon kate’s work without instagram, follow me on instagram, and leave one last comment (share your username if you’d like!) for one more entry.

contest closes friday, april 12th.

good luck, and thanks to kate from uh oh my deer for this awesome giveaway! (take a minute to check out the other amazing goodies in her shop — we are proud owners of some of the art prints and the colouring book, and the paper dolls are next on my list!)

……

congratulations sarah!

    of course I did all of the above for my chance win one of these bad boys – anything custom or Canadian and I’m in like Flynn.

  82. Maria April 8 2013 at 10:11 pm #

    I would love this portrait of my son and his educator. My son is “different” with a delay and the difference she has made in his life is incredible. Since we met her he has changed so much for the better and she, too, says he has changed her life! I think a portrait of the two would be so cute and a wonderful souvenir to have. It’s not everyday one finds an outsider who understands our often misunderstood son and we appreciate her so much, and of course adore our son :)

    I favorited her page too (senspi) and added you to Instagram last week (senspira)

  101. Kate April 9 2013 at 4:09 am #

    I am betwixt and between as to whether I would get our first portrait of the four of us before baby girl was born or if I would wait a couple of months to get the real four of us. Does that make sense? Whichever we did, it would be for some original, very cool art for baby girl’s nursery.

    Either way, it’s a great idea and such a new take on the traditional portrait.

We don’t have kids so our cats are our fur babies :) My husband and my kitties are awesome because they put up with me if I happen to get up in the morning and put on my cranky pants, they love me unconditionally, they make the best waffles (my husband, not the kitties), and they keep me warm in bed at night. Thanks for having this great contest!

  265. Julie April 12 2013 at 6:33 pm #

    I would like one with my husband.
    I’d probably get a second with my kids.
