Custom Frame Giveaway!

Wahooooo, another giveaway!

This week, I teamed up with Angie Austin, a super talented artist on Etsy that designs cute personalized picture frames in her shop, AngieAustinArt.

I have ordered 6 frames from her and just happened to find her when I was googling "personalized picture frames."  I wanted to make some baby shower host gifts for my besties and my mom, and stumbled upon her shop.  Her frames are AWESOME, super high quality wooden frames and you can either choose some of the frames she has listed in her shop (or on her blog) or design one of your own.  She writes on the frames, whatever you want to say and you can pick from two different sizes.  She even puts a personalized message on the back, one of my favorite things, so the person you are giving the frame to knows it was made just for them.

The back of the one above:

Some information about her frames (from her shop):
All of my frames are custom made. They include a glass insert, backing, and stand. Choose a vertical or horizontal layout. Each frame is primed, sanded, coated with 3-5 coats of base paint, decorated and embellished, and then varnished with a minimum of two coats of high gloss, durable varnish. The entire frame is painted (front, back, and sides...with embellishment on the sides). These are keepsake frames that will be treasured for years to come.
All of my frames are carefully wrapped in paper and then bubble wrap. If you would like me to ship the frame directly to the recipient, add the shipping address in "Notes to Seller" and I can add a ribbon & note as well. I ship my frames USPS Priority, arriving within 2-3 days.
You can request a 5x7 frame for $5.00 more. My 5x7 frames do not have a stand and must be hung. I can add a ribbon for hanging for an additional $2.00.
The BEST part about her shop is that you can custom make a frame to say anything you want and you can choose the design and colors too.  I actually just emailed her with what I wanted, attached some design pictures I found on the internet and she made all of my frames custom for me.  She was really easy to work with, the frames were made pretty quickly and then shipped to me packaged up really nicely and in great condition.  You have to see these frames in person, they are super glossy and professional looking, but say exactly what you want them to say with a lovely message on the back from you to the recipient.  You can even pick the font you want her to use, she is really talented!

Her shop is unique because you can make any frame you want, in any style you want and it will say whatever you want.  She loves hearing the stories behind the frame she is crafting for you and enjoys interacting with her customers.  She also has a super sweet little family and the reason I buy products on Etsy is because I like helping out other mamas who make a living by doing what they love.  (Mamas helping mamas, again, my fav!)

So, on to the giveaway!  Here is what you need to do to win one of her frames!
Follow this blog - just click on "Join this site" over there on the left side <---.  (You don't need a Google account to follow, you can sign up with any email address or sign in through Twitter or Yahoo.)

Visit AngieAustinArt and browse her frames (you can also go to her blog, more frames options there).  Look for a font/style you may want but remember if you don't see something there that you'd like, that's ok she can make you something custom.
Comment below with a brief story about a frame you would like for someone (can even be for you) and what you would want it to look like and say.  (This doesn't have to be your final choice, you and Angie can discuss specifics later if you win!)
Then, we will choose a random winner with the True Random Number Generator based on the comment number you are (2nd person to comment is #2, 4th person to comment is #4, etc.).   

Once again, if your comment doesn't post, email me at and I will post it for you.  Please spread the word on Instagram and on your own blog, this is an awesome way to get small, family businesses recognized.  A winner will be chosen on Friday, good luck!

Below are some of the frames I've ordered from Angie, I have absolutely LOVED every single one and know you will love the frame you get too!  And, if you don't win this giveaway, make sure you head on over to her shop and put in your orders for Mother's Day and Father's Day, her frames make GREAT gifts (these even brought tears to my besties' eyes)!

Stay tuned for even MORE giveaways!  Because of your support, people are wanting to give, give and give!

  5. Love these frames! What a great idea for a Father's Day gift... I would custom order a frame that says "I love my daddy" in Washington Redskins colors, maybe the logo on it? So many ideas! I am obsessed with Etsy!

  6. Comment for Megan D:

    I would love a frame with my daughter's name on it, Harper Madison, with colors to match her nursery - grey, dark purple and mustard yellow.

  7. Comment for Jhoselyn M:

    We just recently went to take family pictures with our little one and I would love one of these custom frames for one of the pictures. I would definitely choose a pink frame and the ones with the bows are just so incredibly cute! Would love something that says Aliya & Mommy!

  8. How fun!
    I love the colors in the Aunt JuJu frame! I would definitely love to have one of these frames for our new house. Our little girl is 6 months and I would love to have a picture of the three of us from her newborn photo session. Where our family story started. (:

    Thank you for the chance. I love seeing pictures of your sweet Lemon!! <3

    1. Bradey! Girl I've been trying to contact you but you don't have an email isted on here! I wrote you on your last comment on the tanks giveaway - YOU WON! Email me!!!!

  9. I'd love a Daddy and me frame! Our DD is almost 3 mos old, her nursery is orange and grey. Her daddy flies C130s so if we could incorporate that it would be very special!

    1. Ooooo Bethany that would be awesome with planes on it! You'd have to post a pic for me!!!

  10. We love the cousins frame for my brother in law and his wife as they are expecting twins!! (which was double the surprise for everyone!). We can't wait for Logan to have some cousins to play with :)

  11. I think I'd get one with helicopters or the army logo for my kids. Their daddy is deployed right now, and I think that would help them with missing him until he gets home. Thanks for the chance! Your little Lemon is so adorable!

  12. What beautiful frames and such a thoughtful gift idea! I'd love a Daddy and Me frame to give to my husband for his birthday (from our son, of course :) ). I'd put a picture of the first time my husband held our son and incorporate our nursery colors: grey/white chevron and turquoise.

  13. I would love to have one of these adorabel frames for the 3 of us. We are going to get pictures taken soon since Dominic is turning 2 in May. Wow how time flys!

  14. Comment for Heather L:
    I would love a frame with my last name with a pretty cursive font and with a pretty pattern maybe chevron. I take so many pictures and love to display them everywhere at my house

  15. I would love a personalized frame to give to my husband! We were married Jan. 19th and he had to leave town for business on 1/23...he won't be home until May or June :-( I know something personal like this would make him feel so loved. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. I thought I messed this- yay! I totally want one of the Daddy frames for Father's Day!!! It's difficult to decide, but I like the I Love Daddy or Daddy and Me, which I would personalize with Lucy's name! Thanks for the giveaway. I'm happy for you :)
