Spreading Some Love Giveaway

Can I just tell you how excited I am about this afternoon’s post??? Really, I’m super psyched!

So do you guys remember back a few weeks ago when I attended Sarah’s Bridal Shower? Many of you mentioned how much you loved all of the details at the shower, which had been created by our friend, Christina, who really is just an amazing talent.

Back when I had my bridal shower (which seems like an eternity ago!) Christina also helped with many of the details for that, too.

There was lots of fall décor, which I absolutely LOVED (which should be no surprise, given my slight obsession for fall décor).

While Christina has been doing all of this amazing work on the side for a while now, she just recently launched her own website, christinanorrisdesigns.

I’m so glad that Christina finally decided to launch her website because like I said, her work really is incredible (not that you need much influencing, based on the pictures above, right?). Winking smile

Christina offers customized art for for every special occasion in your life, ranging from invitations, to paper bouquets and flowers, to signature tree prints. For anyone planning on getting married, Christina is definitely your girl.

That bouquet you see up there? That’s our friend Kanika, who just got married a couple of weeks ago, and the bouquet she’s holding is totally paper. I loved it.

And I can actually say that I am the proud owner of one of Christina’s Signature Tree prints, which I received as a gift at my shower.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Christina is generously offering one of her matted 8×10 Customized Signature Trees.

    I would really LOVE this picture because I’m in the process of brainstorming ideas for my new house. The colors in this would be such great inspriation! I could center a whole room around it!

  2. Casey says

    I would love to have a signature tree to give my parents! This fall they will have been married 27 years and their love for each other and their children is unlike anything I have ever seen. It would look beautiful in our living room :)

  3. Brittany says

    Ohhh, I would love this for myself but it would be an awesome gift for my parents 25th anniversary coming up in october!

  4. Emily says

    Oh – I would love this. My boyfriend and I just celebrated two years and are about to move in together – so this would be a great housewarming present to ourselves!

  5. Brigitt says

    I’d love to win this for my mom and dad. They have a beautiful log cabin and this would just fit in so nicely in my dad’s office.

  6. Shelby says

    I would love to win the print. I’m getting married in June and the print would look beautiful hanging in our new home!

  7. Caitlin P. says

    I would absolutely LOVE to win this customized tree! I have a huge empty wall spot near my bed that I have wanted to put some type of picture with myself and my boyfriend but can never find the right one. This would be PERFECT!

  8. Lesley says

    What an amazing giveaway! My best high school friend is getting married in October, and this would be a perfect gift! :)

  9. Jenny O. says

    I would love to win a signature tree because my husband and I LOVE hand made things for our home. This would be a real addition to our very modest (but hopefully growing!) collection of artwork. The paper flowers on her site are my very favorite thing I saw ( though I loved it all!) What a unique, cool creation!
    I also liked her page on facebook. Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. Mrs Freestone says

    I would LOVE the love tree! There is just something so innocent and timeless as a tree with you and your love’s initials on it!

  11. Meg L. says

    I just got married last September and think that that tree is one of the cutest things I have ever seen! I would absolutely love one!

  12. Michelle says

    I would LOVE to surprise my hub with this on our 5 year anniversary (coming up on oct. 28th)! She is so talented!!

  13. Lindsey says

    I would love a customized print so that I can start decorating our walls, given that we have lived in our new home for 1 year without anything on the walls!!

  14. says

    I’d love love LOVE to win this picture because, in a few short weeks, my beau of 3.5 years is moving 300 miles away from me and I’ll be staying in the apartment we’ve shared for over a year together. It’d be glorious to have a little reminder that even though we’re far apart, we’ll always be together in our hearts (corny… maybe. True? Yes.)

  15. Lindsey says

    And one day when I do get married (hopefully that pretty ring comes soon!), I would love the fingerprint guest trees. What a creative idea!!

  16. Stacie Ware says

    Such a beautiful print, I got married last September 24th so that would be an awesome 1 year anniversary gift!

  17. Amanda says

    Well I would love the tree print for myself, due to the fact that I am getting married in June and we just bought our first home(moved in two weeks ago). However, I think I would give it to my grandparents instead, as we are getting married on their 55th wedding anniversary.

  18. ashley says

    i would love to win this painting bc my hubby’s bday is coming up and it would be a great present for him!!

  19. Nicole Nugent says

    I love the painting because I just got engaged, and I would love to have this painting in our new home :)

  20. Jerica says

    I would love to win a painting to give to my BBF for her upcoming wedding…what a beautiful way to commemorate their love!

  21. Chelsea says

    I love the trees, they are so romantic. Great anniversary present!

    And I loooove the fingerprint guestbooks, what a nice touch : )

    Fanned her up on Facebook!

  22. Kathy says

    I happen to know people that were looking at Christina’s site a few weeks ago and talking about wanting to use her signature tree as a guest book. They also own an old farmhouse that it would look awesome in! :)

  23. Sara says

    I would love to win this giveaway so that I could give something sweet to my fiance to show my appreciation for all he does! :)

  24. Katie says

    I visited her site, and am loving the tree with the pink/gray tones! The blue/green tree is my second favorite!

  25. says

    Wow! She is a very talented artist! I just checked out her website – gorgeous stuff. I would love a signature tree because I’m a newly-wed and nothing depicts young love quite like a tree carving!

  26. Rachel says

    Such a cute idea and they turn out so beautiful! I love the idea of using as a guestbook as a wedding because you can use it as a decoration in your home afterwards instead of a traditional guest book that just gets put away somewhere.

    I went to her website and I love the fingerprint guest trees. I also like the signature tree with the gray and pinkish colors. I wonder if she could do it in purple and gray? Hmmm… :)

  27. says

    check out her page as well and honestly i love them all. i love love the signature tree and guest finger print but the flowers are awesome and not something completely traditional. my boyfriend and i are going to celebrate 4 yrs this september. although its a little girly it would be fun to give him

  28. says

    Courtney I tweeted about your giveaway! @NewYorkNiky.

    These prints (and the rest of Christina’s work) is beautiful! I would love a print because my boyfriend and I are about to move in together and I would love to have this hung in our Brooklyn apartment for our friends to see at our house warming party. The tree prints (particularly the first one that is fall colored) remind me of the great hikes my boyfriend and I like to take together :)

  29. Kelsey says

    Your friend is SO talented!! I’d love to win one of her prints–I just moved into a new apartment and the walls are bare! That print would be a great focal point above my couch :)

  30. Michelle says

    I would looooove this picture! My boyfriend and I have been living together and because we are starting out (very poor!)…we don’t have any art work to hang up, it looks pretty blah around here! It would be such a lovely piece of work to brighten up this place!

  31. Jackie says

    I have been a single mom for 16 years and have recently got engaged to the most wonderful man! We have set the date for 11/11/11 and will be married in our tiny one room church with only our imediate family present. Money is too tight for anything more but oh how I would love a signature tree or a bouqet! That would be amazing!

  32. Nicole says

    What a talented friend you have, she does amazing work! I remember the stuff from your friend’s sunflower-themed bridal shower – it gave me a ton of great ideas for my own friend’s upcoming shower.

    I would love to win one of her signature tree prints – it would be a beautiful gift to my brother and his to-be-bride for their upcoming wedding!

  33. Nicole says

    Oh, and it’s so hard to choose whether I like the fingerprint tree (genius!!), or the paper flower bouquet. Both are so unique and lovely!

  34. says

    Wow, she is really talented. I would love to win a customized tree print because my hubby and I are still in the process of decorating our house and are in need of more art. Plus, I love the idea of something that is customized. And I love fall and fall colors. And we got married last October and our signature icon on our Save the Dates was a beautiful oak tree. This fits right in!

  35. Diana says

    I would love to receive a tree print because my (new!!) husband and I just got our first apartment of our very own and this would be the perfect thing to hang in our new bedroom. so beautiful and personal!

  36. Angela says

    I am in love with Christina’s signature tree prints! My husband and will be together for 10 years in November so it would be a wonderful gift for him. Together 10 years, married 4 years, with the joy of a 3 year son and newborn daughter. I feel pretty lucky :)

  37. says

    This is amazing!! I’d love to win this because my boyfriend just moved in and we were actually really wanting to carve our name in a tree back where we first met in Charlotte but were too afraid we’d get in trouble..so this would be perfect for our new home together!

  38. Lauren says

    I would love this for my cousin’s fall wedding! I think it would be a nice touch when she is in need after our grandfather just passed away. Thank you for sharing, Courtney :)

  39. says

    What a clever little lady! I love the tree print and I love all the colors she used. I hope she does really well with her new business!

  40. says

    My goodness! Everything she does is beautiful but I think I like the signature trees and the invitations the best. Wait no I like the paper flowers. No I like it all haha! Beautiful. Thanks for telling us about this artist Courtney!

  41. says

    i would totally love to win a signature tree print because i love trees, my family’s business is landscaping, and trees are part of my wedding decor theme…and i get married in less than a month!!!

  42. says

    What a sweet sentiment! I would love to get this as an anniversary gift for Keith. We will have out 6 year wedding anniversary this year!

  43. Camille says

    Ohh I think that is BEAUTIFUL!!! I would love to win that and hang it in my bedroom- it’s seriously lacking with decorations… :)

  44. Melanie says

    my sister is getting married in october, and this would be an amazing gift to give to her and her future husband!

  45. says

    I would love one of those prints! It is gorgeous! Does she have an etsy shop? Because if I don’t win I might buy one… I just moved in with my boyfriend earlier this year and we ar currently in the wall decor phase and trying to find cute, yet personal items to hang on our walls and I looove that!

    • says

      Hi Mila-
      I am currently in the process of setting up an ETSY account, however I am taking orders through email and by phone. Good Luck and if you don’t win I would love to hear from you!

  46. Sarah R says

    This Signature Tree print is adorable! I would give it to my brother and his girlfriend who just move half way across the country.

  47. Sarah R says

    I love the idea of the finger print guest tree. I think it’s a much neater idea than a traditional guest book.

  48. Diana says

    i went to her website and I LOVE her paper flowers. I would love to use those as escort cards or place cards at my next event!

  49. Carly says

    I would love to win a Signature tree to use in the nursery for our little one (due next week!), I know it breaks the mold a little but, but I think it would be super cute!

  50. says

    Christina is SO talented!! I’m in love with this artwork piece…I would love to put it in a house that my boyfriend and I buy in the near future together :)

  51. Rachel says

    Hi :) I love her work, and I’ve had the opportunity to see it in person! I would love to have a summer themed tree for my wedding next July.

  52. Lauren says

    I would love to have this picture for my parents! I am finishing up college and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. 35 years and going strong!

  53. Keeley says

    I loved Sarah and Jeff’s wedding invite on the site — with the flower in the upper left hand corner — so pretty!

  54. Lauren says

    A paper bouqet is such a great idea! A unique twist while still being traditional, I will be suggesting this to my brother’s fiance!

    • says

      Hi Janelle-
      I could absolutley add your children’s initials to the tree. I have also done some family tree paintings as well with multiple trees, ach with their own set of initials, representing each family memeber.

  55. says

    I would love to win the picture. We have a wedding to go to in 3 weeks and they have requested no gifts but I do believe this would be a lovely wedding gift for them.

  56. janelle says

    Just visited Christina’s website and I really like the fingerprint guest tree. So much better than a guest book (which I have buried in a box in a closet somewhere!) All of her products are creative and unique. Will be passing her site along to friends.

  57. says

    Oh my gosh, this is freakin’ adorable! I would love to win one, because I am going to move away from my boyfriend in 3 weeks (3 hours away) to pursue a job. It has been really hard for both of us to think about, but I’d love to have this little reminder of us in my new apartment.

  58. Elizabeth S. says

    My fiance and I are getting married on September 17th of this year and we would absolutely LOVE to have this hanging in our bedroom! I’m a huge fan of all things *FALL* and think the colors in this are gorgeous!! :)

  59. says

    Ummm I am OBSESSED with the Signature Tree Paintings. They are BEAUTIFUL and your friend is so talented! So yes I would love to win this giveaway because this awesome piece would look even BETTER (if possible) hanging up in my room 😉 And I liked her Facebook page!

    Just went to her sight and I’m in absolute LOVE with the fingerprint trees :)

  61. Erin says

    I would love to win because my husband and I are about to close on our first house & it would look amazing hanging in our new home :)

  62. Grace says

    The signature trees are definitely my favorite. Love the idea of wedding guests signatures too. Although the paper bouquets are really impressive too!

  63. Kim says

    I would absolutely love to be able to give this signature tree print as a bridal shower gift for my future daughter-in-law!

  64. Laura H says

    I would love a picture like that! My boyfriend and I moved in together last year and don’t have many pictures or artwork up yet! This would be perfect for us :)

  65. says

    I would like to win this for my relationship. We’ve been through so much for the past 8 years (high school sweethearts :) ) and right now we’re both going through life changes and it would be a beautiful reminder that no matter what we’ll always stick it out together.

  66. Kelsie says

  68. says

    The print with the reds and browns is my favorite but I kind of wish I could re-do my whole wedding just so I could have a paper bouquet!

  69. Kelly says

    I would love to win because I love how beautiful, simple and elegant the art is and it was the first thing that caught my eye in the photo!

  70. Julie K. says

    I would love to win this and hang it in our house! It would also make a great gift to give my fiance at our wedding in September!!!

  71. Kelly says

    My favourite design of her customized art pieces is the one like yours on the top left corner….I just love the colours and detail!

  72. Katy says

    I love the bouquets the most. They are so beautiful! I wish I would have known about this site for my own wedding!

  73. Laura says

    I just love that signature tree! There’s something about the simplicity and symbolism of a tree plus those great colors – and it’s a beautiful way to show personalized art. I’m always looking for ways to add artistic talent to my everyday surroundings, and this gorgeous tree would be such a perfect way to do it. Thanks for sharing, Courtney!

  74. Natalie says

    I would LOVE to hang this up in our house as my husband and I were married in the Fall and it would be such a unique and special reminder of a wonderful day. Also, the colors of the leaves are stunning and I love the whimsy of the engraved initials in the trees.

  75. Floey says

    For me and my boyfriend (who just moved to Hawaii TODAY for 5yr program for pharm school) :(…I’m in cali.

  79. Megan says

    My boyfriend and I are trying to furnish/decorate our apartment (which is currently mostly “my” stuff) so I’d love to have something that represents us together :) Cheesy, but true.

  80. Rachelle says

    I would love an original tree print b/c it would look beautiful in my living room. I love natural earthy decorations and it would go perfect with my already there decorations. :)

  81. Rachelle says

    The piece on Christina’s page that I really like is the tree print that is on the top on the right with the greens and browns and swirly tree branches. This is beautiful and would look awesome in my house!

  82. says

    What a fun and beautiful gift! It would be pretty amazing to maybe use as a “new baby” gift by incorporating the baby’s initials as well as the parents’. I have a friend who just had a baby a few weeks ago and I think she would love this!

  83. Kait says

    I would love a signature tree because my fiance and I just picked out our first house and I think it would make a meaningful “first piece of artwork”!!! They really are such a cute and creative idea! :)

  84. says

    that print is AMAZING. win or not can they be purchased? it is seriously beautiful and I am getting married in late October and would LOVE that. please let me know if they are for purchase, but I would love to win it as well.

  89. Kristin says

    I would love to win this tree because I have been looking for artwork that my boyfriend and I could use to spruce up our house and this would be perfect. I love how unique and colorful it is!

  90. Kristen says

    i would LOVE to win this because i’m moving into a new apartment with my boyfriend and a little “love” artwork would be the perfect addition to the bare white walls!!

  91. Kristen says

    i reallly like the signature tree in the fall colors. i’m a big fan of fall so those colors just send a smile to my face!

  92. Brooke says

    We’re in the middle of moving from our first apartment (filled with hand me downs)…so I would love to decorate our new place with OUR things…things that scream “us”! One of these gorgeous tree paintings would be perfect!

  93. Audrey says

    I’d like to win one of her designs, so I could give it to yougest sibling. She is only seven and is having a hard time dealing with me about to move across the country. I want her to have something to look at and be reminded of me and that, as I try to remind her often, even when I’m far away I’m always right in her heart.

  94. Audrey says

    I really like the first one on her printed trees page that has the names Joey and Jill written in the heart. I think that my youngest sister would really like the colors and style of that one in particular, though they are all lovely.

  98. Jamie says

    I would LOVE to win because I just got married back on July 16th! Almost at the one month mark I can’t believe it! I checked out her cute site and I have to say that I like the signature trees and the fingerprint guest trees the best!
