Custom Artwork Giveaway {CLOSED}

by Courtney on April 11, 2013

So apparently, my obsession with Stewart’s these days is running deeper than their ice cream. Suddenly, I’m now craving their iced coffee…in a BAD way.

IMG_1877

For those of you who have had an iced coffee from Stewart’s, then you already know that it is not like your ordinary iced coffee you’d get from, say, DD’s or Starbucks. Stewart’s has their iced coffee “drink” prepackaged behind the counter and it comes out of a carton (I ask them all the time if they think they’ll ever sell it…no go so far).

I’m assuming the iced coffee drink must already be sweetened a bit, because all I need to order with mine is some fat-free milk and I’m good to go. It’s not a craving I always get for iced coffee, since it’s so different, by my gosh, I just HAD to have one yesterday morning. And actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if I wind up with another one today. This is one major craving. Winking smile

I feel like pregnancy is playing tricks on me again this week…first the major iced coffee craving (Stewart’s only, mind you), and now I’ve been grossed out after eating BOTH of my overnight oats jars this week.

I had the second one for breakfast yesterday and as soon as I finished it, the thought of them totally made me want to vom. It’s so random. And now peanut butter is, once again, on the iffy list. Crazy, I’ll tell ya.

After breakfast yesterday, all I wanted was salty. I had been craving chips and guac all day long, and while I didn’t have that for lunch, lunch was still pretty satisfying.

IMG_1878

I had my leftover salad from Tuesday, along with another piece of spaghetti squash lasagna. A few hours later, I snacked on a Chobani bite + some green grapes.

IMG_1880

Funny enough…we buy grapes almost every week for Jay’s lunch and I hardly ever eat them. They were definitely a nice change.

Dinner wasn’t anything crazy, and I didn’t snap any photos…but I will say that I did get my fill of chips and guac, along with some sautéed chicken and leftover garlic shells. It was random, and thrown together fairly quick, but it hit the spot.

Custom Artwork Giveaway!

I am so excited to share one of the first pieces of artwork that I know is going to be hung in Baby Tooth’s nursery. Check it out!

IMG_0072

This beautiful painting comes courtesy of blog reader (and blogger!) Erin, who generously offered to create a custom piece of artwork for Baby Tooth’s nursery. At first, I was thinking that I’d love to have something with our little guy’s name on it, but since Jay and I still can’t commit to a name, that idea was nixed.

So I looked around a bit in search of some phrases or sayings that I thought would fit…I came across this one and immediately knew it was what I wanted. Erin worked with me on all of the details, including colors, layout, etc., and before I knew it, I had this beautiful canvas waiting at my doorstep.

IMG_0073

I’m so excited to get it hung once the nursery is a bit farther along!

Erin is extremely talented, and showed me a bunch of different pieces of artwork that she’s created, which makes me extra excited to tell you all that she’s offered to give away a custom piece to one lucky STSL reader!! (US residents only)

To Enter: Leave a comment on this post telling me what kind of artwork you’d love to have a custom piece made of. Something for you? A gift? A phrase? A portrait?

I’ll choose a random winner tomorrow, Friday April 12th. Good Luck! Smile

My husband and I are just getting to a point in life where we can actually start to decorate our home the way we want, and not have a ton of hand me down, thrown together pieces. We were just discussing this morning how we’d love to start decorating in (tastefully done) geek things we love. If I won, I’d have to go with our family slogan (taken from the show Firefly) “We aim to misbehave”.

I have always wanted a custom painting of our chocolate lab, Ike. He’s got such an expressive face. I love how he moves his eyebrows and how his eyes melt my heart. I love studying his face–all the little hairs, brown and now some gray.

My boyfriend and I are hunting for a new apartment right now, and I’m hoping to have a loft/2nd smaller bedroom to turn into an office-like area. I LOVE quotes, so I think I would do that. One that sticks out to me is “I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness”. And then maybe add some graphics around it? Need some decorations to fill up the walls!

Actually, today I have a sweet potato and some leftover vegetarian chili from last night to top it with. I would never have thought to bring a sweet potato for lunch and now I’m so excited I can hardly wait for lunch time!

A custom piece of artwork would be so cool! Not to be a total emotional goober but one of the secret “inside joke” sayings me and my husband have is “pass the popcorn”. On our third date (please don’t judge me! lol) me and my husband were at the movies and I was seriously feeling the love so much that I let “I love you” accidentally slip out of my mouth after I asked him to pass the popcorn. I was completely horrified and seriously considered bolting from the movie theater without looking back but he said that he felt the same way :). We just got married in August so a piece of artwork that said “pass the popcorn” with our anniversary on it would be a great present for my hubby.
