The print called "My Ballet Class" is my favorite because there's all different types of little ballerinas there and I like that a lot. I also think the 'Say Say' is sweet as I remember doing that hand rhyme as a child. These are all such delightful pieces of art and I'd love to see even more with a multi-cultural flair. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

I adore the Balley class. I grew up dancing, and I hope that my little girls will do the same. I enjoy all the images; however, some of the sayings are a little hard to read.

I have been waiting on this giveaway. Look at my name! It was meant to be! I also love the ballet class print. My daughter has a ballet theme in her room, and that print would be perfect. I love these prints!. I would most definitely buy one if the prices were more in my range.

Katie said...

Those are beautiful pieces of Art! I think my favorite image is the Say Say one. Though, they're all very cute pieces. I can't wait to see more. Their Etsy shop is fabulous as well. I'll be getting some items from there.

I can't wait to see more pieces of your collection.

Bekah said...

I love their art. It is so fanciful and charming. I think my personaly favorite is the pumpkin carriage. I also really like the skating turtles and the getting pretty kitty.

go to customize/fonts and colors and make your border the same color as your background (that way it wont show behind your banner)

you can also customize the hex code if you want a different background color.

skcoe said...

MY BALLET CLASS. LOVE IT! I would have loved it as a child, and know that my daughter would enjoy pointing out the different characters and like having it in her room.

Site is easy to use, blogs are always trickier than websites because you have to keep going to older posts to see all items, but all in all I liked it.

I love these prints! So cute! I think I like the alphabet (boy & girl) prints the best, but it is definitely a toss up between a few.
With selling things on blogs it is hard to be able to see a lot of the items on one page. Maybe if the images were smaller (and you can click on them to make bigger), a bigger selection can be seen on one page.

Seeryus Mama said...

Oh! How I love these adorable prints!! I have several favorites...The Patriotic ABC's, Umbrella Birdies and Favorite Things Girl - Personalized. I could keep going...such fun, colorful, beautiful artwork!

The only thing I could suggest to change is the number of posts in the first page. I'd make it 20, then there are more to look at. I went through them all though!

Sky S. - Nebraska

Karin said...

Oh, so hard to choose just one favorite! Well, because I have a little boy, I'd have to say the favorite things boy alphabet is a favorite. I love the skating birdies for seasonal, and--if I had a girl--I'd have to have the ballet class one.

Karin D., Idaho

Croft Family said...

They are all so cute a creative. I love the pumpkin Carriage and the Skating Turtle. Being that you website is a blog it takes for a while to sift through all the pictures. But the blog is cute and user friendly.

What a DARLING SITE! There was soooooooooo much to see and sooooooooooooo much that my daughter would love! My faves were Violet Blossom Birdies and Polly Put the kettle on! Now if I only had the moula!

*Katie May* said...

I love all the designs my favorite were My ballet class, pumpkin carriage and the skating turtles. My only suggestion is make more posts avaliable so that you don't have to click on 'older posts' so much. You should be able to change that in your settings.

Oh, I don't like being number1. Number 1 is never picked! I have a new grand daughter. She is almost 3 and has lived the beginning of her life in China. My daughter and her family will be bringing her home just in time for Christmas.This would be so exciting to win for Mya's room here in the USA. I really love the violet birds on their website. It is so whimsical and the colors are so perfect for a little girl. We are so anxious about this adoption and could use all the prayers out there to insure her safe travel and a peaceful transition. Thank you so much for allowing to enter and send out my plea for prayers....

I LOVE the Pumpkin Carriage. It would fit perfectly in my little daughter's room.

Heather said...

I like the Days of the Week print best, my suggestion for the site is that not all images get larger when you click on them (the days of the week one didn't and its hard to get a good look at it).

The Pumpkin Carriage is my favorite. I'm not a fan of blogs used as stores - if there's any way to have more of a storefront that would work best.

My favorite is Jack & Jill!

Meredith said...

I love the My Ballet Class picture. So interesting with all the little ballet dancers doing something different!

Kendra said...

They are all enchanting! I love all of birdies...but the blue one might go best with my daughters' room, OR the birdie growth chart.

Really imaginative work! It would be fun to see them continue the nursery rhyme series. Maybe do lullabies next?

Mary Avinger said...

My favorite is the Skating Turtles although it was hard to narrow it down. As far as suggestions go, it might be nice to know your feelings about each piece (your inspiration, how it makes you feel, etc). Thanks for being part of this giveaway.

lace said...

I love the Jack & Jill print. Very cute. My niece is always singing the jack & jill song. She'd love this.

Mark and Summer Dickinson said...

Um..ALL OF IT! But if I had to pick one it would be "pumpkin carriage"! Everything is so great, I can't wait to order!

Kimberly said...

They are all so darling!!!! I love them all.

My two favorites are "Winter Deer" and "Circus Train".

As for any improvements with the site, honestly, I don't see anything that needs improving. It all looks great to me! And that is my honest opinion.

Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!

I love 'violet blossom birdies' - and I love the color design of the site. Its very easy on the eyes - thanks for the chance!

Allison said...

I really liked My Ballet Class and Skating Turtles. All your prints are so cute.

The Lindsays said...

Oh, I am SOOOO hoping I win this one. I LOVE your art! It is hard to pick a favorite because it was all like eye-candy to me. But, I did fall completely in love with the Pumpkin Carriage (it would be perfect for my princess obsessed daughter) and the Train (for my train obsessed son)?! I also love the All-a-Twitter Blue Birdies and Sweet Birdies Growth Chart.

The only suggestion I would have for your site is to keep with your etsy site. I found that easier to navigate and see your artwork at a glance. The blog is just a little more difficult for processing orders and seeing all your fabulous items.

Alicia L, UT

Andryb said...

I love the sweet birdies growth chart. What a cute and creative way to chart your childs growth.

Andrea B. Utah said...

H, really loved the site and the nursery rhymes themes. My fave was Polly Put The Kettle ON, I sing that a lot with my boy.

A constructive criticism about the site is that you have to email them with your fave pic and they mail you back with the paypal etc. I just want to click, pay and go.

The prints are fantastic though, thanks for the contest.

cathyhall said...

HI, Loved the ballet class and the big top counting circus, pretty to look at but educational. The site looked good to me. - liked teh link to the Etsy shops for more prints.

Karen R, Maryland

I LOVE your designs. So cute. My favorite girl one would be the pumpkin carriage. My girls would LOVE that one. I think the close second would be a tie btwn your give-a-way and Bo Peep. For a boy my fav. is skating turtles. I also like the growth charts and alphabet.

Christi D Wisconsin

Oh, so cute! I love all the sets and: Get Moving, Cherry Blossom Birdies, Pumkin Carriage,Camping, etc. Your web-site is setup nice, but my computer took so long to download all of the prints. Price range was good, but a stay at home mom like me couldn't afford the luxury.

There are so many great prints that it's hard to choose just one. I think my favorite is the All-a-Twitter Blue Birdies, it's so cute! As for the site, I don't have a blog so I don't know much about keeping one up, but I'd say that this site is clear and easy to read - good work!

kristen said...

oh i absolutely love these! this would look adorable in my little girl's room!! my fav's were: cherry blossom birdies, get movin, purse party, and the ice skating one.
i loved the personalized name one as well, my only suggestion would be to use a different font in the middle (like the ones from the land of oz). the font seemed a little too stiff for the picture. keep doing what you're doing they are beautiful!!

I like the little boy blue print. All your prints are adorable though!

Julie said...

Wow! I can't believe you have so many prints... One of my favorites is definitely Patriotic ABC's but they are all so adorable, there aren't any that I don't like.

I liked the suggestion about showing many smaller pictures on one page, then you can click them to get the details. That way people can skim little pictures to see what they like best.

Julie said...

I just left a comment and forgot to leave my initial and state... Julie C. from UT... I love the ABC's especially the Patriotic and girls favorite things. My suggestion was to put little pictures that are links, so you can see more pictures at once.
