I am SUPER excited about this post. I’ve done several giveaways here on my blog, but this is the first I’ve paired up with a local artist to give away a custom piece of art work! Keep reading to find out how you could win a hand-drawn custom portrait of you and your plus one.
A few weeks ago, my friend Morgan introduced her friend Kelly Hewitt and I via email, and thought we might like to collaborate for a blog post. When Kelly told me a bit more about her, her business, and offered a fun and completely different type of giveaway I was pumped! Kelly is a skilled artist in Tampa, Florida with a very unique style. She has recently launched and online store and Etsy shop for her creative business, Melodious Monster, and I thought many of my readers would enjoy learning about her.
Kelly’s artistic style, in my opinion, is edgy, simple yet abstract, unique, and witty with a bit of dry sense of humor tied in. Her sketches are unlike anything I’ve seen and I just love it! She was kind enough to send me a few pieces of my own and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
These prints will be perfect in my kitchen and in my craft room. I love the “Bake it till you make it” one!
These cards are perfection. I can’t wait to send them to two lucky friends!
And these will be fabulous in my office (Maybe. My husband has already threatened to steal the chocolate one twice.).
How cute is that birch tag? Kelly can make those to order, and they’re great for ornaments, gift tags, dressing up a package, or just something fun to add to your art collection.
And if you know someone getting married, this is a fun and completely original gift!
I love to paint and draw myself, so I am all about supporting other local artists and crafters. It’s pretty rare to find someone who is so imaginative and creative on paper these days!
So, want to win a one-of-a-kind piece of art work? Since it’s Valentine’s week and everyone is feeling extra lovey, we’ve decided to give away a custom, hand-drawn couples portrait. If you win, you can see yourself, character-style, next to your husband, wife, best friend, child, parent, pet … whoever you choose! (If you want a family portrait, Kelly will be more than happy to add additional people for a slight charge.)
Seriously … how cute would this family portrait be hanging in your hallway?
