lovely print

i have a confession to make: i very rarely buy anything handmade.

*GASP*

but i think i have pretty good reasons: 1) i can usually make what i want, and 2) i’m really cheap

but a couple months ago i saw this print featured on meg’s blog, and i couldn’t stop thinking about it!

i could never make this and it was really affordable!

i was shocked at the high quality of the print – my whole family and i stared with our noses nearly touching the paper, looking at the visible brush strokes!

i still haven’t framed it yet, but was so excited to hang it that i used some poster putty to put it in our living room, on the way into the playroom, so i see it all the time.

but then i realized how much even more perfect it is here in the entryway!

but now i have another problem: i want more.  i actually think i need more!  the colors are perfect and the words are amazing and encouraging!

here are a couple others i’d love to have:

crazy pretty, right?

different artist, but i love these as well:

fun fun!

    I wanted to share little tidbit with you this morning in an effort to spread the word for this great cause. Our little town is putting on their 35th annual St. Jude auction this weekend and I wanted to give you the website if you are interested in seeing what we do for the children of st. jude every year. It’s http://www.mindenstjude.com You can shop and buy chances on raffles. Hope you don’t mind me plugging it on your comments. It’s a wonderful cause!

    I’m usually not much of a commenter but I have to chime in and say ….. yes …. etsy prints are DANGEROUS. I have spent much time browsing through all the amazing colors, designs, and sayings. You can find ANYTHING on there. I’ve got that “be kind to others” print too.

  18. 18

    I love that “The Glass is Half Full!” I’m cheap like that too, but that would be so fun to buy!

  19. 19

    I bought my first ever item from your shop yesterday! Your little sale was just the incentive I needed to stop drooling and actually break out the credit card. Plus it’s my BFF’s birthday in a couple weeks, so I thought a zippered pouch would be the perfect gift! But I might keep it for myself. Decisions decisions. (I bought the grey dot and mustard ruffle one, which are my two fave colors of the season. Hmm, now I’m forgetting who I bought it for!) I love the prints you featured above… I may have to do a little more shopping today.

  20. 20

    That print is gorgeous. I dream of doing a whole wall of inspirational word prints. I have three so far …now I just need to find the wall!

  21. 21

    Oh my goodness.. these are so beautiful!!

  22. 22

    Oh so bright and beautiful! I like it as you enter the playroom and i also love the “glass half full”-simple cute different. Nice finds!

    She does amazing work!!

  26. 26

    I’m thinking the Live in Awe might be perfect for me as I’m currently reading One Thousand Gifts. Thanks for sharing!

  27. 27

    It’s beautiful! I just ordered one! Every time I leave my 3 year old at preschool, I tell her I love her and be kind to others. We should ALL be kind to others. LOVE LOVE it. Thanks for sharing Lindsey!

  29. 29

    Love it!!! So beautiful! I think I might have to get that reading is cool one! Super cute!

    I love Katie Daisy’ prints. I bought a print and framed it for a wedding shower gift. [I wanted to keep it for myself.]

    I love your blog and your shop, Lindsey.

  31. 31

    These are two of my favorite Etsy shops! I have Katie’s “You Are My Sunshine” print, and I’ve had my eye on the “Sweet & Sour” on Studio Mela for. EVER. I love the one you picked too!

  32. 32

    Gorgeous print!! I must admit that I rarely buy handmade also because I am pretty crafty myself and we are on a tight budget, but I love to support other artists when I can.

  33. 33

    look at All.That.Color.

    I might just be buying the Joy one.

  34. 34

    Great print! It looks awesome on your wall.

    Happy Weekend!

    I love your blog! Your pictures have given me so much inspiration to add color to my house {was all white} plus you show that a home can be beautiful and family friendly! I recently started a blog about my family and decorating and would love for you to check it out! Thanks for all the eye candy!

    her work makes me want to drop everything….gather an easel and paint brushes and go crazy! not that i could do any of that but it makes me want to try!
    it’s so pretty.
    and happy.
    i love all her work.
    and studio mela too.
    her colors are lovely together.

    good for you for going for it! :)

    my daughter is having a baby and i think some of her art would be such cute nursery art!!! thanks so much for sharing the link and it looks great on your wall!!!

  43. 43

    Off to peruse this shop—I had known about them from a long ago feature on kindovermatter.com but I’m really feeling the need to own one of these prints.

    They would be a perfect reminder of the attitude I want my children to have each day.
    (and I just read on your Twitter bio that you homeschool? HOW did I not know this?? HOW? :D)

    Thank you for reminding me of these pretties,
    S.S.

    Dear Lindsey,
    I looked for you all over Blissdom, but only saw the evidence of you in all the poppys I saw on everyone. I was hoping to meet you, see if you would like to be on Madre Minutes sometime sharing your story and of course get a poppy. Such a clever idea.
    I love your blog and shop and thanks for telling us about Katie my daughter would love these for her classroom and or nursery someday.
    Kindest regards,
    b†
