letterpress giveaway!

Well, I didn't post this earlier this month like I wanted to, but better late than never, right?

One lucky winner will receive this "Live What You Love" print from our favorite letterpress artist, Hijiri. Our house is filled with letterpress goodies from her, and she is even making something for the baby's room!

This "Live What You Love" print is 8x10 inches, letterpressed by hand using vintage wood type blocks on 100lb, 100% cotton Lettra Pearl White paper with soy-based hand mixed light yellow-green ink, which means it is environmentally friendly. The print is hand numbered on the back. And, word on the street is that green-yellow (or "grellow") is the hot new color for interior design.

To win this print, all you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section of this blog post telling me how you live what you love. One winner will be chosen on Friday, September 3, 2010.

DISCLAIMER: The frame is not included. (I borrowed it from the baby's nursery just so I could photograph the print in a frame.) If you like the white frame and want to purchase one of your own, you can grab one here.


  1. "Live What You Love"
    What I love to live for is my family especially my daughter and life itself. My daughter is definitely my miracle child as I had ESRD when I found out I was pregnant. Had to go through dialysis and have open heart surgery while I was pregnant 4 years ago. She definitely made it through it with me of what I went thru. Too top it all off I was transplanted 2 1/2 years ago and blessed at life a second chance for my daughter to have the life she deserved. This is what I "Live What You Love"!!!!


  2. I stopped working for corporate America this year, after the birth of my second child. My husband and I worked on a budget to allow for me to stay at home with our babies. I happily gave up shopping sprees to live what I love!

  3. Reading is something I love to do, so I make it a point to read one book per week.

  4. I have learned over the years to take time for myself, and that is what I do each and every day, even if it is for only a 10 minutes. :-)

  5. I gave up a job making great money in the banking world to live what I love...myself! By doing that, I get to spend time with my amazing family and also met the man of my dreams! I never knew that love can make anybody so happy and it makes me smile from when I wake up to when I go to bed, I think I might be smiling in my sleep!

  6. After the birth of my son, I knew that nothing besides him mattered, and I began living for him.

  7. Oo! I wanna play!

    I live what I love everyday. I've known my whole life that music was what I wanted to do with my life. Even after I stepped away from it for a while because I thought it wasn't going to be possible, I pushed the fear aside and went back to school to finish my bachelor's degree when I was 24. I get to do what I love every day now. Not only that, I will get to do it for the rest of my life and share it with other people. I love to I write. I love the outdoors, so I go outdoors. I love my family, so I spend time with them. I love yoga, and I do it everyday. I love beautiful food and cooking, so I cook and make beautiful food. I love to support local farmers and eat healthy, so I use reusable shopping bags and I buy almost all of my produce from local farmers. I love to sleep, so I sleep!! I could go on, you get my drift :)
