You may have heard of the tortured artist. I’m a tortured artist wanna-be, who hasn’t taken a design class in her life. I love to dabble in it, but in terms of graphic design I’ll leave it to the experts.
Experts like Erin at Ink Tree Press.
I was so smitten with her designs that I
begged kindly asked if she’d like to sponsor a giveaway on my blog.
My heart went pitter-patter when she said yes.
Not only that, but she provided one of her newest products for me to review: a personalized growth chart. I simply chose the name, font color, theme, and specified it was for a boy and Erin did the rest. I loved that there are an array of themes and colors from which to choose, so there is a palette to match any room!
I think I melted when I saw it in person, just a few days after I okay’ed the proof.
It was beautiful. The chart is printed on high quality canvas, with sealed edges and a dowel and ribbon for hanging.
I chose the animal theme, and even though it doesn’t match the nautical feel of the room it does match the color scheme. Besides, I think Ben will love the animals as much as I do in just a few months when he starts noticing those types of things. The zebra is my favorite:
A close up of the high quality canvas:
Baby #2 often doesn’t get personalized things. They get things handed down, like bibs that say “Abby” in pink with purple hearts. Now Baby Bee has his very own personalized growth chart, and just in time as he’s growing like a weed.
I loved it so much I had to order a print for a friend’s new baby son as well. And when that friend unknowingly sent a photo of her daughter’s room, freshly painted in a woodland theme, well– add another print onto that order, please!
That’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Here are a few other things from Ink Tree Press that will make you swoon:
