Initial Designs ***ENDED***

There is just something about art that draws me in. I love going to art museums and just walking around in awe. I love all the colors artists use and put together. I love displaying artwork in my home. Art on canvas is so beautiful in my opinion. Sadly, I'm not an artist, but I'm glad that there are talented people out there who can make up for my lack of artistic abilities! Melissa at Initial Designs is sending me my very own custom work of art in exchange for this feature. I'm too excited! I think she has so many cute designs that she has created for her clients. These pieces can be viewed on her blog.


I think the detail on these are amazing!



What rooms in your home are you in need of decorating with unique artwork?

Kids rooms?
Family room?



Even holiday decor is available at Initial Designs! You all know how much I love the holidays! :)

There is a look that I have been wanting for a wall in my home for a while now and I was ecstatic to find that Initial Designs could create it for me! I envisioned having our last name initial surrounded by our first names hanging on my living room wall. How fun that Melissa is going to put that image on a circular canvas for me!
And one lucky winner is going to receive a custom piece from Initial Designs. Now aren't you too excited? The winner of this giveaway will receive a 12x16 inch painting on canvas featuring the design of their choice. A painting like this would typically run between $35-$40 in the Initial Designs shop, so this is an awesome giveaway!
Well, it's Friday again and that means that this giveaway will be open until Saturday, Nov. 21st at 11:30pm EST. Remember how many chances to win you had last Fri/Sat? :)
