giveaway {paint me a picture}

The giveaway is now closed.


I'm so excited for this GIVEAWAY
from Lindsay's handmade shop, Paint Me a Picture!
Let's get to know Lindsay...

Tell us about yourself.
Hi, I am Lindsay. I like to paint; I mean I really like to paint. 
When I am not chasing around my two year old, 
making my nine month old giggle, or spending time with Mr.Wonderful 
you will find me in my studio a.k.a. my kitchen creating my art.

When did you start blogging & open your Etsy shop?
In college I took an art history class that really inspired me to paint. 
I played around with painting for friends, and in 2008 I decided 
to start selling my work locally and started Paint Me a Picture - the blog
simply to provide an online place to showcase my art.
In May of 2009 after my first son was born I opened my shop on Etsy. 
After opening my shop I began to connect with other bloggers 
and handmade shop owners and established amazing relationships. 
 I closed my personal blog 
[a 3 year work in progress with about 3 followers]
and merged it with Paint Me a Picture - the blog
realizing I could share my paintings and glimpses of my life together. 
If it weren't for finding a place in this blogging/handmade community 
I know my blog and shop would not be growing as they are today. 

Where do you get your inspiration for painting from?
I am constantly inspired by fabrics, popular color combinations, 
and what's trending, taking ideas and making them my own on canvas.

What's your favorite city?
My favorite city is Savannah, Georgia. 
It's where I went to college and fell in love with art!

And now, for the moment you've been waiting for,
Lindsay is giving away a $25 shop credit!
Aren't Lindsay's paintings fantastic?
[can you guess which one is my favorite?!]
