Whimsical Expressions by Lisa Review & Giveaway!

Anyone who has their own home or apartment knows that it takes time and money, not to mention effort to really make your place your home. We purchased our home three years ago, April 15. Since then, we have been continually pouring money, time and effort into our home to truly "make it ours". From paint to furniture, to mirrors and decor, every little touch gets us one step closer to having it just the way we want it.

While looking for some picture frames, I happened to find Whimsical Expressions by Lisa on Etsy. If you've been reading my blog from the beginning, I happened to mention that I LOVE supporting crafters and have a weakness for personalized products. Finding something that's truly "you" is often hard, but Lisa makes it easy. From note cards to magnetic clips to hold notes and artwork to truly fantastic picture frames, and candle holders, you're sure to find something "you" at Whimsical Expressions.

I received my LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE picture frame, and instantly fell in love. Seriously, the picture does it no justice, it's so pretty in real life! The colors are earthy and warm and truly fit my decor perfectly. I've honestly spent weeks rotating several pictures in it, because I haven't been able to decide which one I want in it the most. The close up of the kids makes it fun and functional, the picture of Brian and I from a friends engagement party three years ago makes it romantic and reminiscent. It sits right on top of my television, and has quickly become a favorite of my friends and family that visit.

WANT IT? Check out Whimisical Expressions by Lisa on Etsy, and browse her stylish, fun and practical products and gifts. Don't worry if you see something you like but it doesn't fit your decor, Lisa will work with you to meet your style and need!

Thanks to Whimsical Expressions by Lisa, one lucky 4BabyAndMom reader will have the chance to WIN their very own LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE picture frame!

I love that frame. If I won I would put it in the boys' bedroom with our forever family picture in it so they would have a reminder that they will always be ours. I also like those candle holders. They would make a nice wedding gift for our friends.
