Summer Giveaway: Mati Rose McDonough print*


I have been decorating my house these days, slowly but surely, finding great prints on Etsy and 20×200 to adorn the walls in unique and affordable ways. My favorite print though is the one above. (I have three of Mati’s prints!)

As you can probably guess from the banner on this journal, I have a thing for stripes and pyschedelic colors. Mati is masterful at both and I love her quirky, childlike, and sophisticated style.

Today, one lucky winner will receive a print from Mati’s Suspect Shoppe. Leave a comment and win!
And if you are in San Francisco this Friday night, we will be celebrating Mati’s work at the Curiosity Shoppe in the Mission.

Giveaway Guidelines:
– You have until 9AM PST on Friday, July 10th to enter this giveaway.
– Just make a comment ON THIS POST to enter.
– This is a random drawing
– One entry per person, please. (Just push “post” ONCE and wait a few seconds. The comment should appear)

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.
