Swirly Twirly Designs Giveaway: Create Your Family’s Own Motto!
posted by: Amber Johnson
Every time I walk into a craft store like Hobby Lobby, I spend time browsing through the signs and pictures, looking for a motto that fits my family. Share. Forgive. Laugh. Be Grateful. Love. Though these generic signs have wonderful messages for any family, I have never found one that perfectly fits mine.
It would appear not everyone is equally passionate about growing giant pumpkins.
That’s why I was ecstatic to connect with Heather, a married mom of 3 (with one on the way) who lives in Breckenridge. She started Swirly Twirly Designs a few years ago when she searched for items for her daughter’s nursery but couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for.
So, she decided to learn how create her own signs and artwork and what started off as just gifting to friends and family soon became a business. Since 2012, she has made thousands of items for customers, almost all of them personalized–from drinkware to family signs. Each item is handmade and all of them are unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.
I selected my sign’s design and had a lively discussion with my family about our creed and what passions represented who we are. I could not be more thrilled with how it turned out.
Related: A couple of years ago for my 10-year anniversary, I took profile pictures of each family member, and framed the four silhouettes. I gave the artwork to my husband in a grand gesture but we never got around to hanging them. Imagine how thrilled I was to realize that they fit perfectly with our new family motto from Swirly Twirly Designs.
But Heather creates so much more than just family signs. Be sure to go to her website, Facebook page or Pinterest to find everything from growth charts to rustic scrabble art with family names to time-out stools to family stockings holders–all of them personalized.
Mile High Mamas is giving away a $50 gift certificate to use toward any item in her shop. Contest deadline is Nov. 30, 2014. You may enter as many as five times.
