Recently I read this: “Here's an idea: Let's buy Christmas presents from small local businesses and self-employed people. For example, from your neighbor who sells online, a local craftsperson who makes jewelry, the stunning local florist shop, the local bakers that bake homemade cakes, buns and chocolates. The guys that run a cafe or a salon, let's make sure our money goes to individual people, and not huge corporations. This way more local people will have a better Christmas. Support REAL PEOPLE.”
PITTER PATTER ART
Once again, I can't remember when I met Laura, but it was through my friend Maris I think. Actually like many friends I've never met Laura in real life, but just followed her story and journey from afar via her blog. I was drawn to her art immediately and have grown to love every single things she creates. If you get a chance to go and check out her blog I highly recommend. Not only will you find 146 other things you wish you could buy for yourself and Christmas gifts (which I highly recommend you doing), but you will see her amazing story and how she lives her life. I don't know this woman personally, but she inspires me to give more. Not of my money, although I'm sure she does plenty of that, but of my time and my life . She is a GIVER and is always doing something to bless someone else and that's something I could grow about 110% in my life.
Laura from Pitter Patter Art has agreed to give a beautiful piece to one of my lucky readers. I can't say enough how much I love her work and I know you will too! Here's what she's giving away to one of you guys! This would make a fabulous Christmas gift for someone on on your list!
Love Love Love this! The colors, the saying..the whole shabang! Would love to have a piece of her work : )
I have to thank you Jamie for introducing me to Laura of Pitter Patter Art, via this blog! I honestly can’t remember how long it has been since I started following her blog, but I know it was because you mentioned her here or on twitter that I found her! So, again, I give you a HUGE THANK YOU!! I have laughed, cried and prayed for her and her family through a lot!! And feel like I know and love them as much as I do yours! I have. Not met her or you personally, but…feel like I know you well because of your hearts being shown and shared via your blogs!!
I heart you and your family!
I follow Laura, too. Love her art, love M & S, and find we have a lot in common. Glad to be introduced to your blog.
I have longed for one of her pieces for awhile now! This one would be a wonderful theme to take with us as we return to Chile after our year of furlough ministry in the States … Praying God will use us to continually invest HIS love in the lives of the Chilean people!
I love this idea! I hope it is ok for me to throw out another idea! We started a non profit this year to help adoptive families raise money for their adoption costs. The website is http://www.youradoptshop.org. Several families are already selling on the site and there are a lot of great things listed. It is free for adoptive families to use and 100% of the money goes directly to the adoptive family. We also have a Facebook page so we would love it if you would check it out and like us. Please spread the word too! The items at Your Adopt Shop would make really great gifts. There are even several items that were handmade in Africa!
So happy Laura led me to your site! It is such a pleasure reading your story!
Love Love Pitter Patter Art!!! She is AMAZING!! Thanks for your Inspiration!!!
Would love to have a piece of hers. I also love reading about her life.
While I adore the art, I must say that I just plain ol’ Love Laura Kelley and her sweet family! I’ve laughed so hard, I’ve *almost wet my pants and I’ve shed many a tear with Laura, as she’s shared her walk with the Lord and life with her family. I would be SO Blessed to win and it would hang on my Happy Wall, which is a wall of items to look at when I’m sad or really ill from treatments.
Thanks, for doing this Giveaway! Hugs ~ Jo
Love Pitter Patter Art 🙂
I love Laura’s work! I alway’s seem to be number 11 in her sign ups to purchase and just have just never been lucky enough to win one of hear give aways! I am dying to have a piece of her work for my home! It is just AMAZING!!!!!!
Is this how we register to win? I love, love, love this piece.
I have wanted a piece of Laura’s for SO long – not for me, but for a friend. I have a sweet friend who is the MOST awesome pastor ever – and she is the one who introduced me to Pitter Patter Art. I started following Laura’s blog when her dear, sweet mom passed away, and I was taken with her honesty in her grief. I rejoiced when she and Josh finally welcome Amon home, and prayed when he went through surgery. My friend has struggles of her own, as she serves in a church that is not where she would have chosen, but her home is anywhere she goes, and this print would be perfect for her. PLUS, she just LOVES Mumford & Sons, so if I don’t win this, can I please, please, please order one????? 🙂
Me too! I love Laura, her blog and her art. She is so very inspiring. Thanks for doing this giveaway!!!!
Would love to have this piece. Totally love Laura’s giving heart and amazing talents! She truly inspires me to be a better person.
I look forward to your blog and the fun times you have with your precious family. You are so talented, patient and loving. Your children are truly blessed to have you as their mother and mentor. I love the way you do art as an every day event. God bless you!
Love this momma and love her art but most of all love her honesty as she walks through some heavy stuff in life. Love you Laura!!!!
I love following Laura’s blog and her artwork is to die for! I would love nothing more than to be blessed with a piece to hang in my home!
