Sponsor Love + Giveaway {Pen & Paints}

Meet Lindsay of Pen & Paints blog & shop!
Hi, I am Lindsay, a busy mama of two silly little boys. I am a southern girl with a loud laugh, a sensitive heart and a little bit of sarcasm on the side. I like to draw and paint, a lot.

After taking a bit of a break from the blogging and handmade world to refocus on myself and my family I picked up a sketchbook, an ink pen and started drawing. I began sharing my work mainly through Instagram and had a wonderfully positive response. The more I drew, the more ideas I developed, and I saw the need to make a change in the name of my blog and shop of almost three years from Paint Me a Picture to Pen and Paint. I still love to create with paint and will continue to create art in that medium, but for now drawing and creating prints from my sketches is much more functional for me as a stay-at-home mama.
I continue to gather inspiration from the handmade community, like creating a print for people who love to sew, from things people "heart" like photography and coffee, and from designs that are trending like geometric shapes.
My favorite thing about having a handmade shop is being able to share my work with people I encounter in social media on a daily basis. When one of my URL friends makes a purchase from my shop it means the world to me knowing a piece of something I created is going to be enjoyed by them.
And now, for the giveaway! Win $25 shop credit to Lindsay's amazing shop...
