$250 Modern Bird Studios Giveaway!

Contest is now over.  Congrats to entry #342 Heather.  I’ve sent you an email!

Yippee, it’s Friday!  Since I love Fridays so much I thought it would be fun to share with you this fabulous giveaway that Modern Bird Studios is offering one Picky Palate Reader.

One reader will win $250 to go shopping at the Modern Bird Studios Website. You have got to check out the beautiful work they do with your photographs!  Talk about an awesome Christmas gift 🙂

Modern Bird Studios creates personalized, modern art from your photographs. Each work is a one-of-a-kind, original studio piece created with a combination of digital, hand, and painting processes on an Oak composite, or, for the extreme modern enthusiasts, on acrylic mounted to Oak.   They capture that moment from your life—a wedding portrait, a baby picture, a travel photo, a pet snapshot or whatever the event—and transform it into a totally hip urban-style art piece that enriches your home.

my painting of the boys, “a day at the beach” how cute!

You have got to see how cool these paintings are that they create out of an image you send them!  It makes the most beautiful picture on your wall.  I just received the painting of my boys that I picked out (pictured above) and I LOVE it!   If you place an order between now and a week after the giveaway ends, you get 15% off by typing PICKYPALATE in the discount code box.

    My fave family vacation is when we used to rent a cabin in Lake Tahoe. We would caravan there right after Christmas, and there would be so much snow. I still remember spending the days skiing, and coming home to cabin and enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate by the fire. I really miss those days.

    How cool!!

    We took a family trip this summer that was so much fun. It was nothing major but some fun family time not too far from home. We went to the North Shore here in MN with no real plans and just did what looked fun.

    My favorite family vacay was when I was a little girl and my mom, step dad and I spent a week on the beach with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. I remember having so much fun with the family, and since I was a kid, I didn’t have a care in the world. I miss those days…

    My favorite family vacations have been our trips to visit family in Bermuda every year. When I was little, I rarely ever appreciated where my family lived, but once I began working full-time, I couldn’t get enough! Family, beach, sun – what’s not to love?!

    Traveling to visit my mom’s side of the family in Colchester, illinois, population approx. 1000. The entire family (other than me and my mom) lives there so it was always great to see and be a part of a tight group of loved ones. I miss it!

    Jen says:

    My favorite family vacation was one year when I was younger and my family went to Florida for Easter. My brother, cousin and I really wanted to go to Disney World so we kept telling the adults we were going on a certain day, like it had already been decided. They Did end up taking us and it was funny when they came to the conclusion that no adult wanted to be there that day.
