"Inspirational Home" Giveaway

Share

I have met so many talented women through The Gift Closet & I think that is one of my favorite things about blogging. I am always amazed at how talented people are, and that is why I love introducing them to you. One of my favs is Jeanne Winters.

This is one of my fav ideas of hers. She posted on her blog how to do this & I have had it bookmarked for a long time. Some day.....

Jeanne Winters' blog, Inspiring Ideas, is a place where she shares some of her wonderful ideas. You can see posts showing how to make Summer Souvenirs, Holiday Ideas, and see some of her wonderful products.
Two summers ago Jeanne was approached to design an inspirational gift line for Hallmark. Last fall they launched Simply Inspiring by Jeanne Winters. Jeanne says it was a wonderful opportunity and a tremendous learning experience. She had already had a working relationship with DaySpring, a subsidiary of Hallmark, and continues to design products for them. DaySpring and Jeanne share a vision to offer fresh, stylish Christian home decor and gifts. DaySpring.com just started selling framed prints of her retro paintings. They carry a number of other items she designed and have more in the works! They're a terrific Christian company and truly a leader in inspirational products!


Jeanne sent me her book, "Inspirational Home" recently to check out for myself ~giddy~ and one to give away on The Gift Closet! I have garnered some awesome ideas from her book & can't wait for you to check it out. You can purchase it, as well as some of her other awesome creations, in her etsy shop. Click here to check it out.

Jeanne's inspiration:
"I actually started with an online gift store in 2001. I had all these ideas for incorporating my faith visually - into my home, entertaining, etc. I felt a tug to encourage women to see that they can express their faith in so many unique ways to be a blessing to their family and others. To think outside the box. I wanted to do a book, but then thought some of the ideas could be products - so I decided to start with an online presence. I offered products and ideas since women either want to buy something or make something - and I wanted to reach out to both. And that's really been the passion in all my endeavors to date, like my blog and my Etsy store and the products I design - to inspire people to share their faith creatively."

An Easter Egg creations of hers...
