Win a gorgeous piece of kids art!

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve run a competition, so I thought it was about time.  I was contacted by Carla Daly, an internationally known children’s artist. On her site you will find beautifully illustrated height charts, door signs, personalised nursery art and kid’s wall art at affordable prices, I didn’t see anything over £25.  I challenge you to find something that you don’t like.

I found it very difficult to choose an item to review as there were so many that I liked.  In the end, I went for a children’s wall map.  The artwork is truly gorgeous, capturing the essence of childhood and would be perfect for any child’s room.  The characters are uniquely adorable.  Plus, it came with all the fixings so we were able to hang it within 5 minutes of receiving it.  In fact my daughter snuck up and hung it herself!  However, she did hang it upside down!

Carla is offering one of my lucky readers a chance to win one of her pieces.  Simply enter below using Rafflecopter.  You can either use just ‘one’ or all the options for more chances to win.  This is the first time I’ve used Rafflecopter so please do let me know how you get on.

Personalised Birth Block Prints

I really wish I would’ve got one of these when Madame was little, but I guess better late than never.

The lovely Kirsty from Blockart sent me a few samples (personalised birth print, lower case alphabet and a festive reindeer) and I was truly impressed with the product and quality. She not only does personalised birth blocks but also nursery art including Ellie the Elephant, Helen’s Camel and Rory the Lion. Each piece of artwork is mounted on a precision cut block which is then finished to the highest quality.

‘Based just outside Edinburgh, BlockArt is a one woman band dedicated to bringing new affordable but unique nursery wall art to the UK. Currently we are able to provide a product 100% made in the UK, of which we are very proud.’

For obvious reasons these aren’t the exact block prints that I received but this should give you an idea of what they look like. I think they’re gorgeous and a great gift idea (£16.99), even if you’re child’s starting school in January.
