$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.

Here’s How to Enter:

1.  Leave a comment here telling us…since I always take a ton of pictures on family vacations…”What’s been your favorite family vacation, either with your own family or from when you were a kid?”

2.  For extra entries Follow Modern Bird Studios on Twitter and Like them on Facebook.  Leave 2 separate comments for these.

3.  For additional extra entries, Follow Picky Palate on Twitter, Facebook and subscribe to my RSS Feed.  Leave separate comments for each of these if you’d like!

    My favorite family vacation happened when I was 14 – my parents secretly packed up all of our things and spirited us away to Disneyland at Christmastime! We took a road trip down the Washington/Oregon/California coast and it was SO much fun to be at Disneyland at Christmas! Thanks for the chance to win!

    My very fav vacation would have to be when my daughter and I went out to California. It was for her senior trip and it was a wonderful time. We made some very wonderful memories. We met a few celebs and lived the high life for a week! Can’t wait to do Vegas with her in a couple of months.

    My favorite family vacation was when I traveled around Europe for 3 weeks when I was 10. It was a huge adventure for my family of 7, and we truly bonded during that time. It’s one thing I’ll never forget 🙂
