A Little Gift for you

Do you have a little room on your shelf yet? Or a little corner of your wall? Because I enjoyed a little snippet of my afternoon designing this 5x7 print and thought I would share it with you! 

A tiny gift from me to you. 

A little way of saying 'THANK YOU' for making the first year of SparrowJoy a great one. 

Just click on the picture and it will bring you to the file. You can print it from your home printer, and when you cut along the grey lines, you'll have yourself a nice little 5x7 print to lean, tape or frame. 

Have a blessed Christmas, my friends! The Lord is come. Joy to the world, indeed!

<<< This print is a gift to you! Print one for yourself, one for your neighbor, one for your sister-in-law, but please remember it is for PERSONAL USE ONLY. Thank you >>>

Tim Horton's dark roast coffee.

Am I allowed to say "yuck"? Probably not. That would probably be considered rude. Especially since I asked you what your favorite drink was. You were simply responding to my question! You don't deserve a "ew, yuck". 

Ew. Yuck.


(sorry...never liked coffee all, really...)

Congrats to Jannyne, the dark roast coffee lover!! You've won!! Contact me at jennifer[at]sparrowjoy[dot]com, let me know what color you'd prefer, and I'll send that right over. 

Thanks, everyone, for your comments. I will be sticking with my Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (thank you, Bulk Barn, for supplying it cheaply for me...), but it's fun to see what you're sipping this winter. :) Have a fanTAStic weekend!

It's time for a Giveaway!!

Recently I had the fun of emailing over my "Great is your Faithfulness" print to the winner of a  SparrowJoy giveaway on Facebook. 

Now - it's your turn! That's right! It didn't seem fair that non-facebook users couldn't join in the fun. And so now is the time for a BLOG GIVEAWAY! (don't worry - I won't exclude facebook' can try too! :) 
'So!', you might ask, 'What's the prize?' Well, in keeping with the season, if you leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite winter-y beverage (What's that? You want to know mine? Ok, I'll tell you! - salted caramel hot chocolate!!! Mmmm), then you enter a draw for the "Glory to the Newborn King" print!

The winner will receive a digital file of the print - and they even get to pick their favorite color! There's 5 options...and options are good, right? 

So folks! Let's get this giveaway started! You have until Saturday, Dec. 13, at noon to comment with your favorite hot beverage, at which point the contest will be closed. Spread the word! 

(By the way, if you happen to be local to Chatham, I will easily be convinced to print it out for you...)

Update: Contest is now closed.

What do tape, clipboards and frames have in common?

They're all great ways to display art prints

Last weekish, (the weeks all flow together in my mind, do you have that problem this season too?) I had a bit of fun printing and snapping some shots of three different ways to quickly display the seasonal prints at SparrowJoy. I say 'quickly' because the weeks all flow together and sometimes its nice to add something festive quick-like

Like swapping that dated family picture out in the frame on the living room shelf.

Or, one of my personal favorites, grabbing that roll of paper tape and whipping it up on the wall.

Funny sidenote about this particular art print - this picture was taken pre-correction! I'm going to hope that all of you know this verse by heart and so read it as your brain knows it...meaning you missed the missing "of" which should be camped out between "city" and "David". Sigh. It cannot be helped my friends. I will forever look at words as shapes and lines and spaces when I design...and no matter how many times I read it over myself, I must get five people to proof-read for me!!! 

Mistake noted (thanks D!). Correction made. Apologies extended to those who bought this print at a certain school bazaar a few weeks back. (if you contact me, I'll certainly send you the corrected file!) 

Sidenote finished and moving clipboards! Another favorite option.

And so I hope that give you a couple of ideas of how you can make fast work of using art prints for decor this season! Wintery decor in general has slowly been trickling down from attic storage to our house and I'm liking its gradual progress. I feel like we're easing into the season more that way! Because did I mention how the weeks are all flo...yeah, I think I did...

No good...

...will come of this. This grin is way too cheeky. Thought I.

I was right. I plucked bits and pieces of leaves out of my scarf, hair and neck for several minutes after this grinning little lady approached me that autumn-y afternoon.

But it certainly made her a happy little lady.

And that's good. Very good.
