Giveaway!!! $20 gift card for UUPP, "Unique Uplifting Positive Prints"

UPDATE: And we have a winner! Congratulations to Nicole! Her comment (number 108) was randomly drawn to win.

When Carrie Hartman contacted me about hosting a $20 giveaway for her etsy shop, one click on the UUPP shop page and I happily agreed, especially as I’ve been stalking etsy for months for art prints to decorate a blank wall above my couch, so I have art on my mind. When asked, my three-year old suggested I paint the wall rainbow, then add unicorn stickers. While I do appreciate the suggestion, and even paused at length to consider, I think something along the lines of these uplifting art prints may be a better fit, while still capturing the happy rainbow and unicorn mentality, yes? Check out the entire collection HERE at UUPP, “Unique Uplifting Positive Prints.” Visit the UUPP blog HERE and the facebook page HERE.

I’m loving the collection of Julia Child quotes:

about the shop
UUPP, is a delightful store full of high-quality, original home décor art prints. As the name implies, the designs are uplifting; created from the heart of a mom of 3, a wife and a designer, who decided to channel her creativity into positive messages and quotes while struggling to deal with some of life’s bumpy roads. UUPP, (Unique Uplifting Positive Prints), is full of work about some of life’s simple joys; from family and friends, to faith and love, her passion for cooking and baking ( she is a serious Julia Child fan) and her endless devotion to Mr. Darcy (she is also a crazy Jane Austen fan). Carrie has been thrilled to be able to help spread some love and happiness through her work.

    I like the Take Time to Do Things that Make Your Heart Smile….so often we get caught up with "all the stuff" in life.

  2. Anna-Maria says

    I love the one "Belive you can and you will". That is what I want to teach my children and I have to keep telling myself that too.

  3. LadyWild says

    I love the "I Love you more than coffee" sign. My husband switched my caffeinated coffee to decaf when we were newly married. It was almost the end of the marriage :-). After we made up, this was exactly what I said to him. He has never tried switching my coffee again. The devil comes out of me.

  4. TheresaE says

    wow there are alot i liked. the Mrs. darcy quote, all you need is love, and the "home is where your story begins" are my favs.

  5. Angel says

    I like the "Fat gives things Flavor", "Whip it good" and the Happy Forks print"…What I can't choose….hahaha

  12. Christina says

    I love a LOT of the prints, but I have to say the Mr. Darcy quote "I never wish to be parted from you from this day on" (LOVE Mr. Darcy) would be wonderful in our bedroom.

    "there could never be a more beautiful YOU"….what a great thing to inspire confidence in my daughter. I love that print. Great talent..but she is from Minnesota so she HAS to be a cool cat. I liked her on FB.

  40. AlexandraRS says

    I think "Do Small Things With Great Love" rings most true to me. But they are all such darling prints!

  41. DECOR8Rgirl says

    I really need the "You Are Okay Just As You Are" Art Giclee Print. I'm having a hard time right now, and that would help me be ok with me, and remind me to just get on with things!

  42. Whitney says

    Be Fearless, the BEST Julia Childs quote. I always think of that when it comes time to flip an omelette :)

  43. Kendra says

    Do I have to choose just one? D: I lovelovelove the Sweet Birdcage print, the Have Your Cupcake and Eat it Too print, the Mr. Darcy quote print (my favorite Austen novel), and basically every single one there is to love. Her typography is adorable!

  44. TheYellowRose says

    Oooo, choosing one would be hard. I love anything to do with cupcakes, but the "I love you more than coffee/sushi" ones are great too!

  45. Sugar Butter Baby says

    I like the "believe you can and you will" print, reminds me of something my mom would say (in a good way)

  46. megs_is_a_bitch says

    It's hard to pick just one favorite but I think it's the have your cupcake and eat it too.

  47. kim says

    So many great prints, I would have to go for "love you more than coffee" although my family might not always believe it.
