from me to you.



I got in a really lame car accident today (fender bender on the freeway); it was upsetting. This letterpress print is a happy reminder to take a deep breath and just smile*... to progress in life and always strive to be better. Onward & upward, as the old saying goes.

So here's a little giveaway of the print to bring cheer to someone:
Just leave a comment on this post before Saturday the 21st at midnight, along with a way to contact you. I'll choose the winner(s) at random and send the print your way.

It's also available for purchase here -- along with prints by Lindsay and Trent.

*and really, how can hot air balloons not make you smile?

  49. A young blogger friend of mine, (she's 11,) linked your blog a week or two ago. I knew right away I needed to immediately put you on my bloglines.

    Love the print. I use to live in an area that was a popular place for ballooners to set sail. I miss the beauty and thrill of seeing it.
