Feature Friday: Define Design 11 Giveaway!

You know, the more time I spend browsing around Etsy, the more and more amazing shops I find. When I was looking for items for my recent Kentucky-themed feature, I found the amazing I Heart My Hometown print and I met the gracious and friendly creator behind it, Sandrine. Well, now I'm coming back to show you more of Sandrine's shop, Define Design 11.

Sandrine has done a lot with simple and elegant state outlines. You can get a custom birth announcement print with a heart over the city where your baby was born and all of his or her birth information:


Or a print to commemorate your wedding with your names, wedding date, and a heart over the place where you were married:



I love both of those so, so very much. They are everything I love in a keepsake... classic and personalized and meaningful... I can't get enough of them. I'm also a really big fan of this United States map:


Wouldn't that be so fun in a playroom or homeschool classroom? You could get a lot of mileage out of teaching your children not only the states themselves, but also about the symbols pictured on each state and what that symbol has to do with the respective states.

She has many other great prints that aren't geographical. I have to be honest, my natural tendency is to procrastinate and/or get tired halfway through a project, say I'll come back to it after a short break, and never return to finish it (or at least not for a few days). That's why I loved the no-nonsense attitude of this print:


With all of the packing I'm doing these days, I need this reminder often! Okay, I have one last thing before we get to the giveaway. I am really loving all of Sandrine's fun little Hand in Hand prints:


I had to show the Mexico one because I have a certain sister-in-law who is a Spanish Education major, so anything in Spanish always makes me think of her. Especially something as cute as this. You can also get this in Italian, Japanese, African (not sure which African language that is), French, Arabic, and Eskimo (which I'm guessing is Inuit). The little people on each one are all so precious and creatively designed!

She has a ton of other awesome prints that I just don't have the space to show you. You really should go check them all out... there's something for pretty much everyone, and her prices are great. And just for My Messy Manger readers, because y'all are so special, she is offering 10% off any purchase with the coupon code QUICKTEN. Yay!

Lastly, do you remember the awesome I Heart my Hometown print that I showed you in the Kentucky feature? Here's one of Lincoln, Nebraska, just to jog your memory:


I love, love, love this in a very serious kind of way! Isn't it great? You can choose any color, any state, and any city. From New York to Hamakuapoko to Monkey's Eyebrow to Juneau... wherever you love, she can declare that love on a gorgeous print.

And would you believe it... Sandrine wants to give one lucky winner a free print memorializing their favorite place!

How to enter:
Go to Define Design 11 and tell me one item in her shop that you love.

For extra entries:
  • Like Define Design 11 on Facebook, leave her some love on her wall, and leave me a comment saying you did so.
  • Share this giveaway on Facebook (be sure to include a link to this post) and leave me a separate comment saying you did so.
  • Tweet about this giveaway (again, be sure to include a link to this post, the twitter button at the bottom will give you a nice, short url) and leave me another comment with a link to your twitter.

So there are FOUR ways you can enter to win! Comments will close at 12 noon Central Time on Tuesday, June 14th. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on this blog immediately. The winner will have one week to get in touch with me or an alternate winner will be chosen.

Just for the record- I did receive a free I Heart my Hometown print from Sandrine, but only after I found her shop and told her that I wanted to feature her. 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.

    It was hard to choose just one thing, but I think it would have to be the Home Framed Print. I've got a soft spot for all home things!
