Enter to WIN Our Live the Life You Love Giveaway


Every year we make New Year’s resolutions, and so often find ways to break them (sigh).

But what if our resolutions were more gentle and easier to follow?

Scott Albrecht, an artist/designer currently based in Brooklyn, NY, has an easy way to stay in the right frame of mind. He created a wonderful collection of postcards: Live the Life You Love Postcard Box which features 25 witty and inspirational hand-drawn aphorisms (reproduced 4 times each), and is housed in a keepsake, letter-pressed box.

His words can inspire you simply by pinning them on a cork board, or framing them and putting them on a wall, or if your resolution this year is to inspire someone else, you can mail these 100 cards to friends and family who may need a little pick-me-up this year.

Now, on to the giveaway! We wanted to start 2013 off in an extra special way and thanks to Scott, we have a fabulous set of prizes for you! We have an 18” x 24” “Perfect In Our Imperfections” signed print from the artist, a tote bag that has “Let’s Make Stuff” printed on it, and of course, a Live the Life You Love Postcard Box to go along with it.

Just leave a comment below with your (gentle!) new year’s resolution this year, and you’ll be entered to win!

Gwen January 13th, 2013

I don’t usually make resolutions. However, having gone through some major life changes at the end of last year, I am declaring 2013 to be all about Gwen. (not in a selfish way, just a stop putting everyone else first and focus on what I need/want/dream about sort of way)

I resolve to do more of what I love this year. This will involve being more focused and pushing away what is meaningless, time consuming and distracting.

Yes, I’m walking away from my computer now…

This is indeed a lovely concept. 2013 is a year I want to spend treading even more gently on our fragile planet. That means finding even more projects that recycle the old to create new beauty.
