Hello Sponsors: Custom Portrait Giveaway by Birds of Ashmae

It’s turning out to be a good morning. Taxes are done and just had a beautiful run over golden gate bridge and now Ashley of Birds of Ashmae is offering a fabulous giveaway to one lucky Say Yes to Hoboken reader: A custom and original painted portrait based on a photograph (up to four people). Pictured is one she did for us from our photo shoot from Modern Kids Photography. Didn’t it turn out amazing? She paints them with walnut ink and watercolor. I’m so happy with it. It really is so lovely in person, such a beautiful piece of art to own.
And one of you gets one too!! How sweet is that. It almost feels like Friday, doesn’t it? If you don’t end up winning (bummer) but are still interested in a custom portrait, email her at email her at ashley.mae.christensen [at] gmail.com. She also sells beautiful and super inexpensive (starting at $7!) prints. My favorites are this bird and two giraffes having a literary conversation (what a great title). I really love her style.

Giveaway opened until this Sunday night 10pm PST.
