Speaking of works of art... Modern Bird Studios giveaway

Modern Bird Studios asked me to submit a photo and they'd in turn create an amazing piece of art mixed out of digital and hand painting on oak composite, just for me.

imagine

I instantly thought of this photo I'd taken of Ivy & Gray holding hands at the apple orchard this fall. I love how it is shown from behind, and looks like they are storybook characters about to sneak off into the woods for a great adventure.

Modern Bird Studios

I AM IN LOVE.

What a fabulous gift this would be- especially as a group gift, and Modern Bird Studios is offering a 15% discount with the code: BABYWEARING (valid until 11/22/2010.) Order by December 1st for Christmas delivery.

Take a closer look at the texture of the paint and wood. Amazing.

WIN! Even more awesome, I'm giving away a $200 gift certificate to Modern Bird Studios, open to readers in US and Canada. Just leave any comment here for your entry. I'd love to know which photo you'd maybe choose to use if you win? (But really, any old comment will do) AND

[I never do this, but since this is a big prize, I want to offer multiple entries, so]


I will choose one comment at random after 11:59pm CST next Monday 11/15.

Fine print:
  • No previous winners of Modern Bird Studios are eligible to enter.
  • Speaking of which... get more chances to win at My Bottle's Up and Scary Mommy right now.

  • Modern Bird Studios provided the fabulous piece given to me, as well as the $200 gift certificate.


And in case you missed it, I am showing off Noah's fabulous works of art here. (Last night we were googling our favorite artists- found out Van Gogh also had epilepsy! And Noah really likes Frida Kahlo's use of birds and monkeys in her art. Huh!)

I also have another giveaway this week: Peace & Love- Tiny Prints giveaway.

comments closed- will announce winner 11/17.

  49. that is so cool! I'd submit a photo of my mom with her 4 grandchildren and give it to her for Christmas.

    btw, I never got around to commenting on your post looking for good recipes to cook for your grandparents, but last week I made the pumpkin gnocchi recipe from Girl's Gone Child's recent post, and it was DELICIOUS. Cheap, plentiful, and delish. And not as hard to make as you might expect - my 3 year old helped a little.
