Howdy peeps!

I've got a SUPER fun giveaway for my readers. I am so excited about this one because you are going to LOVE it!

Have you heard of Paper Coterie? If not, prepare to be amazed....

Paper Coterie offers photo books, calendars, cards, journals, and much more. Their newest release...WALL ART....and I am IN.LOVE.

What is Wall Art, you ask? Here is what Paper Coterie says about it:

Brighten the rooms in your home with vibrant, personalized wall art! First, choose your favorite creative design. Next, you can choose which product to order in that design. You can choose a decorative fabric poster made from a specially patented adhesive that can stick and re-stick to any surface. If your looking for a more dimensional look, choose a high quality stretched canvas print that comes out of the box ready to hang. Either way, you'll love what the personalized artwork brings to your walls.

Check out these adorable samples:

Aren't those precious?! How cute would one of those be in your child's room, playroom, or classroom? I love that you can personalize each one, making it a unique piece of artwork just for your child or you. Or, how about putting a teacher's name on the "Know Your ABCs" one and giving it as a nice gift for Christmas? My head is spinning with all kinds of ideas for these!

The fact that you can peel them off the wall and reuse them, without damaging your wall paint, is amazing. Or, you can order one that is already stretched onto a canvas and is perfect for hanging on the wall!

I decided to make a canvas poster for my youngest son's bedroom. I chose the one called "Star Label." It was SO easy to create...I just input his name and date, picked what color I wanted, and bam....DONE. :) Here's what it looked like:

PERFECT colors to match his room, and shipping was super fast. I couldn't wait to get it up on his wall, but I wanted a frame around it. However, there is no custom frame shop around here, so I took a piece of trim, got my dad to cut some 45° angles in it, and then we glued/stapled it together. My husband and I then painted it white to match our son's room. Once the paint was dry and the frame was all finished, we hung it on my son's wall and then added the poster to the middle of it. We then added a couple of floating shelves to the right of it, and voila! A unique, one-of-a-kind art wall for my son. :) I LOVE how it turned out:

What do you think? Can't wait to get your hands on one of those custom prints? Well, good news...
