Feature Friday: Art By Erin Leigh Giveaway!

You are really going to love this week's feature. I'm pleased to introduce you today to Erin of Art by Erin Leigh. Erin makes beautiful mixed media collages that feature scripture and other inspirational quotes, and she's also had them made into high quality prints so that we can all afford to have some of her beautiful art hanging in our homes! (Erin also has a totally awesome middle name, if I do say so myself.)

The first piece I saw that drew me to her shop was the absolutely gorgeous The Love of Christ print:

I really can't decide which one I love more, that one or the equally gorgeous Exceedingly Abundant print:

Fortunately, Erin has anticipated that people would love these two together and sells them as a pair here. I love, love, love both of them! I also really love this Rejoice in the Lord Always design, which you can buy as a print or original art on canvas:

For Such a Time as This is a beautiful mixed media collage on canvas. I mean, what's not to love about this... the birds, the flowers, the scalloped top and bottom, and the patchwork sky are all so gorgeous:

Like I said, she also has several beautiful prints that feature inspirational quotes. I love this one that has a line from Somewhere Over the Rainbow:

I love the patterns in the rainbow and the simplicity of it! And I also love this print with elegant, artistic flowers and a fun quote by E.E. Cummings:

You can also find Erin at her blog, which is an inspiring mix of personal adventures, business news, and spiritual thoughts, and her Facebook page. Now for the best part... Erin has graciously offered to give away a print of your choice to one lucky winner! Yay!

How to enter:
Go to Art by Erin Leigh and tell me one item in her shop that you love.

For extra entries:
  • Share about this giveaway on Facebook (be sure to include a link to this post) and leave me a separate comment saying you did so.

  • Subscribe to My Messy Manger via RSS feed (button at bottom of sidebar) and leave me another comment saying you did so.
So there are FOUR ways you can enter to win! Comments will close at 12 noon Central Time on Monday, April 18th. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on this blog immediately.

Just for the record- Erin has offered to send me a print as a thank you for featuring her, but that was only after I fell in love with her art and told her I wanted to feature her. And I don't get any commission from any of her sales. As always, I just really love her stuff and I love to share stuff I love.


  1. I love the Inspirational Art "Courage" with the white tulips! So pretty!

  2. I love the house one..."surely goodness and love will follow me"

  3. I like it all! I love all the scripture ones for my home but the transportation print for kids would look so good in the boys room!

  4. Stacie Leigh-

    First, I love your blog. I love watching you experience life in Moldova, and really enjoy reading about your recipes and gluten-free living. I had to give up gluten a few months ago (it gives me migraines- yuck!) and am always searching for recipes and ideas.
    I also LOVE the painting- Because it has a song. What a fantastic artist and find!
    Hope you are doing well!

  5. What unique and beautiful art! It was almost too hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the "let love and faithfulness never leave you."

  6. I love the "rejoice" print you've included!

  7. Already subscribed via RSS. Not sure if that counts or not...

    I love that you post cool stuff every week! Now I don't have to go searching for it myself. :)

  8. Those are amazing prints!!! I love them all, but I think my favourite is the "Exceedingly, Abundantly" Scripture one.

  9. i like her "trust in the Lord with all your heart" artwork

  10. Oh my. I am in love.
    I love the "Abide in Me" scripture art. :) :)

  11. I shared about the give away on facebook and twitter! I like the Rejoice in the Lord Always print!

  12. Love your blog. I found you a couple of years ago through sew mama sew. I have so enjoyed reading about your life in Moldova and have prayed for your family. Sorry I am just now coming out of lurkdome.
    Love these pictures.They are wonderful. I have no clue which one I would pick. Any of them would make me smile =)

  16. I guess that my favorite would be; Psalm 37: 3-4. Trusting with all yor mind and soul is tough at times.

    Thanks Stacey,
