Linny Fish Creations Custom Portrait Giveaway


As many of you already know, my friend, Lindsey, is an amazing artist. Like, truly awesome. She made my day life and painted these fantastic pictures that are hanging in Brody's nursery. Remember how I saw these in an expensive baby store but didn't want to pay the $400 price tag? So, I hired sweet Lindsey to paint them for me, instead!

She also MADE (as in sawed it out of wood and painted it) this super cool surfboard that hangs in Knox's room:

Did I mention that she also paints custom pet portraits? She has painted both of our dogs, and lots of other peoples' pets too! Here are some examples of what she can do:

Amazing, right?? I keep hoping her painting talent will rub off on me, but my paintings still look like something you'd dig out of an elementary school art room's trash can. I've also gotten her to paint pet portraits for family members as gifts, and she did some fantastic architectural portraits of our wedding venues in Charleston as "thank you" wedding gifts for our parents. Oh, did I not mention that she does custom house paintings, too?
As if she wasn't talented enough, right? It seriously blows my mind. Thankfully, Lindsey is now sharing her craftiness and super talent with the rest of the world via her new Etsy shop, Linny Fish Creations. She sells custom house paintings, pet portraits and window pane jewelry stations. She also takes custom orders- just message her for more details, if you're interested in something that isn't available in her shop now.

One of you is about to hit the jackpot and will be taking home a stunning, custom 5x5 pet portrait!! I'm super excited for whomever wins this giveaway! And even if you don't win, Lindsey is offering all of you guys 20% of your order through the end of February with the code "SOUTHERNBELLEBABY" at check out (make sure you use all caps!).
