============================================
The New Year has just started (I still can't believe it's already 2009) and I'm already thinking about Valentine. 
I'm one of the moms that will help with the Valentine's party in Jamie's classroom this year, I'm very excited!! See, Valentine is a much bigger thing over here than it is in Europe. When I was a kid we never used to celebrate Valentine in school. It just isn't that big in Belgium.
But anyway, talking about Valentine,...

Leigh from Little Darlin' Designs (the winner of my Sima necklace giveaway) send me 4 little individual paintings, together they spell LOVE. They all came wrapped separately and it was fun to open them (but then again, I just love opening presents!).
All 4 paintings are painted in a different design, they are really great! I just love the colors, the size, it really is beautiful!













I have them standing up, but there's the option to hang them on a wall if you want.

As soon as Lisa (my oldest) came home from school she saw them and asked if she could have them in her room. This weekend we're going to hang them up in her room, she is so excited!

Some more info about Little Darlin' Designs:
Leigh, when and why did you start your business?
I started my business this last fall. I love to paint and just started on canvas last year and love it. I started painting and sketching as an outlet for stress since I'm a stay at home mom of 3 under 4. I needed something for me. It makes me feel like I've gotten something accomplished!

What's your favorite painting/design?
Wow, that's a hard one for me......I think each time I do one they get better and then become my favorite. So it constantly changes. Right now I love just doing Names/Initials. I love painting kids names.

What are your plans for the future?
I plan to expand to painting on wood and really focus on painting things that are important for families and their homes. Such as family/childrens names, verses, and meaningful phrases. I think it's important to keep things in your house to remind you what's important in life or what inspires you!

You need to have a look at the website to get an idea of what Leigh does. She makes letters, doorhangers, birth announcements,... You name it, she can make it!!

  

Leigh has generously offered to give one of my lucky readers an 8 x 10 1.5 inch canvas with a basic design and a name up to 6 letters!!!
For a chance to win, please head on over to Little Darlin' designs, have a look around and let me know what your favorite design is.
For a 2nd entry, become a follower of A latte in the morning and let me know in a separate comment.

Deadline for this giveaway is 01/27/09. The winner will be emailed and announced on 01/28/09.
