joyful joyful giveaway

how cute is this banner?!
courtney, my sweet baby sister-in-law (ok, she’s not a baby – she’s just the youngest),
just opened an etsy shop to compliment her already fabulous event planning blog and website.

she’s been making some really great signs for her clients & their events,
like at their candy bars.

this evolved into some great, clean lined products for your home.

and lucky you!
courtney is offering you a chance to win one of her banners!
all you have to do is go check out her shop, and tell me what your favorite item is,
and tell me if you could have any word or phrase hanging in your home, what would it be?
but while you’re at it, you seriously need to look at her blog for some inspiration.
the events she plans are unbelievably amazing, creative and, well, joyful!

and, she has the 2nd cutest 2 year old boy in the world, so don’t you just want to support her?!

    What an adorable Etsy shop! My favorite is the 'Tidings of Joy' banner…it makes me think of the Peanuts' (Linus, I think) interpretation of the Christmas story.
    If I had any choice of a word or phrase to hang in my house year-round, it would have to be the word 'joy', because there is joy in each of life's moments, if you can only find it.

    Thank you for sharing her with us today. I love the "thankful" banner in her shop. If I could have any word, it would be "blessed". Be blessed today and be joyfilled!

  3. 3

    my favorite item is the monogram tags. love those!! :)

    I would probably choose the word, GRACE.

  5. 5

    I love her Etsy Shop! I love the Tidings of Joy banner best. If I could choose a saying for my home it would be Dance in the Rain!

    Cupcake Carrie says:

  7. 7

    I love all Courtney's banners and items. Especially the Merry Christmas banner. It's so clean looking and not too much.
    If I could choose a word it would be Thankful!

  8. 8

    I love everything! Really! I think I like the heart gift tags and the peace banner the best. It really is hard to choose though. If I could pick any word, it'd be rejoice or peace.

  9. 9

    I love the rejoice banner. I would probably choose t he word "love"!

  10. 10

    they are all too cute! my favorite is the merry christmas banner.

    Katie Petro says:

    I love the blue gift tags with the red hearts…just may have to order some of those! :) I would chose the name Audrey or Norah…and hang in my sweet little girls' bedroom…wonder if she will do that? That would be pretty neat! Possibilities are endless…good luck to her…I am passing on her link and yours as well to all my friends!!!

    I love the green and gold "JOY" banner, but as to what I'd put on mine…well, probably something like "be Joyful always"

    The Rejoice banner is a beautiful reminder of what the Christmas season should be about.

  15. 15

    Love the Thankful banner with the Amy Butler paper. I would like, Simple is Good

  16. 16

    My favourite word would be thankful. I have six beautiful children, a wonderful husband and an awesome God. What else do you need when you have that!!! Love her etsy shop!!!!

    Kristin @ The Treasured Petal says:

    The Tidings of Joy banner is my fav! I want my home to be filled to the brim with the joy of Christ's birth this season (and always!) Courtney is a sweetheart and her shop is adorable!

  18. 18

    I love her shop! I've added it to my favorite Etsies. :) My favorite banner is the Peace Christmas Banner in White with Glitter Grey Velvet. What a great idea. Her blog is breathtaking. If I could have a one-word banner, I would want it to say "HOME"…my husband and I just bought and moved into our very first (non-apartment) place! :)

    Thanks for bragging and sharing her genius!

    Bryan and Ashlan says:

    I LOVE the "Merry Christmas" banner. The green polka dots would look perfect with my Christmas decor!

    I would also love to have a banner with the word "blessed" on it that I could display all year long. :)

    It's hard to decide but I think I like the 'Tidings of Joy' banner the best! Thanks for the great giveaway. Your sister is very talented :)


  21. 21

    I LOVE the Peace Christmas Banner in White with Glitter Grey Velvet. Beautiful. If I could have any phrase, it would be the fruit of the spirit – each word on one circle of the banner!

  22. 22
    Chance and Beth says:

    Oh I really love it all. So cute and modern. I would get my daughter's name "bailey" for her room.

  23. 23

    I love the "Thankful" Banner in her shop. I would like the work Rejoice on my wall somewhere.

  24. 24

    The peace christmas banner, with the glitter…….LOVES IT!!

  25. 25
    The Popes says:

    I love the REJOICE banner! That could be left up all year!

    I think I would put one up that said, "Be Still" since I am constantly having to remind myself that in order to hear God, I must SLOW DOWN.

  26. 26

    My favorite banner is the Rejoice Christmas Banner. I also love her gift tags. I just added her blog to my favorites!

    SoBella Creations says:

    Adorable shop!

  28. 28

    I love the red and aqua "joy banner". If I could choose a word to have in my home at all times, it would HAVE to be LOVE. Because love makes every other charachter trait possible even Jesus said "The greatest of these is LOVE…"

  29. 29

    I love it all, but I especially love the Christmas Gift Tags Red and Blue Retro Snowflake Print Holiday tags cards…so cute!

    If I could choose a phrase to have in my home it would be JOY – it's on our Christmas cards this year, along with a verse about joy.

  30. 30

    Hmmmm….after a lot of deep thinking, I'd have to say one of her "joy" banners is my favorite. If I had a banner in my house, I'd choose "laugh" because I think I need to be reminded to laugh. So sad, but true.

  31. 31

    What a wonderful shop…so creative…beautiful.

    I especially like the 'tidings of joy' banner.

    Enjoyed visiting the blog, too.


  32. 32

    great shop! i love the little mini tags, so perfect! if i had a word hanging in my house it would be "FUN" : )

  33. 33

    I really like the sign you have posted. "joy" with the turquoise. I also like the personalized gift tags with the snowflake print.

    Signs, Signs…. Right now I have "Wish" up I used German glass glitter on it(LOVE the stuff) In the future I would probably like "LOVE" or "FAMILY" Maybe those are classic choices but, good none the less. Thanks for sharing.

  34. 34

    I like her holiday gift tags.
    I would choose: "merry christmas" plain and simple, I THINK.

  35. 35

    She really is talented! I love the "thankful" banner on Amy Butler paper, but I would like the word "peace" in the same paper instead. I need some reminders to seek peace in my life.

    Enter Lovely says:

    First of all I love Courtney's site. I am an event planner as well and new to blogging and fell in love when I saw her etsy site!
    My favorite banner on her site is "Thankful" because for me often thankfulness is the beginning of joy and merriment. "Thankful" is also the word I would have in my home because it is a great defense against the urge to complain that we all have and a reminder of the many blessings we have been given.
    Thanks for all your great posts and giveaways!

  37. 37

    I love her shop…and I love her! Courtney lives across the street from me and I get glimpses of her amazing creativity often, which totally inspires me.
    These banners are amazing. A couple of them hanging in your house and decorating is over. They are so simple and sweet.
    I would love a banner that said, "give thanks" I am very grateful, but I feel like a gentle reminder everyday would give me a different perspective daily!
    By the way your posies are adorable. We are always drooling over Courtney's adornments.

    Linda @ Craftaholics Anonymous says:

    Love all of her Christmas gift tags. So fun!

  39. 39

    The banners are great! They are all so creative…if I chose a word it would be FAITH…I've been thinking about faith a lot lately and how much we have depended on ours these past 2 years.

  40. 40

    i love the monogram mini gift tags. i have thought of making these the past fews years and always seem to run out of time! if i had to choose a word, at this moment in time it would be "breathe" i frequently need to remember to do that (with three kids 3 and under!!)
    thanks for sharing such wonderful things on your blog. i find such inspiration here!!

  41. 41

    I love the "Peace" banner! Something I could enjoy all year long :)

  42. 42

    I looove Joy Christmas Banner Turquoise and Gold Garland Sign! No lie, 'joy' has been my new favorite word- it was going to be my babe's middle name (but she got my grandma's name instead)

  43. 43

    Thank you for sharing her Etsy shop with us! Her items are not only adorable but greatly priced! I love the "Joy Christmas Banner Turquoise and Gold Garland Sign." Although I would use "Believe" for a gental inspirational reminder for myself to never give up in life.

    The Martinez Family says:

    I know Courtney, we used to do theatre together, so I don't think that it would be fair for me to actually enter, but I just wanted to say that her business, blog, shop, etc…has totally inspired me. And I think she is fantastic. I have been so blessed by her story and the life that she lives and I think her products are fantastic :-)

  47. 47

    my favorite banner is the merry christmas garland with blue and red prints.

    its difficult to think of a phrase that i would want around my house all year round….but i think i would want it to be something like…"have faith" or maybe just "faith"..i dont know, good question!

  48. 48

    I love the Merry Christmas banner, she has really nice things in her shop..

    If I had to choose one word in my home to hang year round it would be Thankful..since every day is a gift that I am thankful for..

    Great giveaway!!Happy Holidays!

  49. 49

    I love the red & aqua Joy, those colors together are amazing! And if I had a word or phrase hanging in our home I would choose "Comfort & Joy" because I think that is what a home should be about.

    I love the thankful banner. I never seem to have enough Thanksgiving decorations. And thankful should be year-round, anyway.
    For the one word that I would hang in my home, it would be love.

    barefootandpoignant says:

    I like the "Joy" banner that is green with white polka dots.If I had to creat a banner with only one word, I think it would be "Redeemed". Thank you for the great giveaway.

  58. 58

    I love the banners! My word would definitely be Peace.

  59. 59

    Love her shop! I would love the PEACE, polka dot JOY, or Thankful…oh yeah you did say one. Oops. LOVE IT!
