GIVEAWAY- Aimee's Adventures in Home Decor #1: RETRO MODERN PROJECTS - CLOSED -


Beautiful, modern affordable, and handmade: Retro Modern Projects. I first discovered this awesome shop on Etsy, one of my favorite sites. I was impressed immediately with Stacy, the shop owners unique talent and philosophy. Stacy creates Linocut block prints by hand carving and hand pulling the print. She strives to reuse and recycle everyday items into art. I love that some of the prints have coffee grounds in them. How cool is that! Retro Modern Projects art is very versatile. I could find a piece of work for every room in my house.

Stacy sent me 2 pictures from the same series "Spring Buds." Like all of her work that I viewed, they were both artist signed, numbered, and dated. I hung them in my living room and absolutely LOVE them! Stacy also sent an adorable orange owl that I am working on framing and debating whether to put in my kitchen/dining area or my little boys room. I'll keep you posted! :)

Retro Modern Projects belief is "that modern art should be affordable and attainable," her shop holds true to that. When I told one of my friends Retro Modern projects prices, she was shocked it was SO AFFORDABLE! Stacy was so wonderful to work with on this project. I received my prints quickly and packaged so nicely. If you want excellent art work in a jiffy, Stacy from Retro Modern Projects is your gal! :)

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
