Giveaway: Christina Williams Designs

happy monday! i hope you're up for some serious giveawaying. my favorite paperateers (like mouseketeers, but with pretty paper hats) are joining forces and giving their goodies away via m.writes every monday. i couldn't be more pleased with how this Summer Spree Spectacular is chugging along. keep the comments coming, if you're anything like me, sheer delight comes in the form of paperie!

Giveaway No. 02




christina williams' designs draw me in. she is a busy california mama & creative card queen. i especially love these textured dandelion cards which are created on her gocco. they are simple and sweet. to me, they are the essence of what the summer season is all about. she named these cards The Hudson Collection after her son. she says, when i watched my husband teach my son to blow the seeds off a dandelion... my son taught me to appreciate the simple, beautiful things around me.

make a wish and comment on this post to enter to win. THREE winners will be sent a box set of 4 dandelion cards (size A2 with envelopes). good luck. thank you, christina!

leave a comment on this post to enter to win.
the winner will be announced on friday, july 18th.

EliseBlaha said...

oh man -

those are lovely. my wish is to move back to (and live happy ever after in) california.

Ali said...

Sheesh, I love those. And our surname is Hudson. Got to be a good omen hasn't it?

Summer said...

Oh, those are really neat!

When I walk home from classes I go through this adorable little neighborhood, and there are always dandelions growing out of the cracks of the walls that hold the yards up (we live in a very hilly area, ha ha). I feel kinda weird stealing them from the people who live there, but the way I see it, I'm just helping to repopulate them anyway.

Lauren said...

I love dandelions. My niece calls them "wish blossoms." Isn't that cute? By the way, love the "i am loving" poem.

Jane said...

dandelions are so delicate and remind me of my favorite saying, "turn soft and lovely any time you have the chance." I think about the flower and the saying often.

Kris said...

Yay, I love paper and all of the possibilities that come with it! (As for the whole, I know your relative comment earlier, your sister Amy is my sister-in-law Meredith's good friend)...It's like forgetting the name of a movie and you can't put it to rest until you remember or figure it out. So I can rest now :)

Thank you for sharing so many amazing finds with us. I am a mother on maternity leave in Canada and I have no idea how I happened upon your blog...but am I ever glad that I did. The ideas that you provide and the words that you write are beautiful and inspiring. I look forward to following your journey once your son is born. I can only imagine how beautiful your thoughts and words will be once you look into the eyes of your little boy.

Thank you for sharing with us.
