This post has been brewing since August. I met some of the representatives from Paper Culture at BlogHer this summer. I genuinely adored their cards, invites & artwork. Especially this owl print.

Owl Family

Generously, at the end of our conversation in the expo hall, Paper Culture gave me a $50 gift card to use on whatever I’d like.

I really wanted to get Christmas cards done. Cute photo ones. Like these two.

The Essence of Christmas

Hand Drawn Holidays

Except we didn’t have a good photo of us. And back in the summer/fall I’d thought it’d be super fun to announce our pregnancy on them. Except the gift card expired Nov 15th when we didn’t really know what was going on. I decided it was too early for an announcement like that. And their beautiful bamboo wall art kept drawing me in.

Here’s when I really had a hard time deciding. Did I go with something for future babies nursery unsure of our theme? Is it weird to have two little owls on the art & three babies? Did I want to go owl crazy {y’all know that answer was yes}. Then I remembered that I still haven’t ordered our wedding photography album. Of my dream to have one of our favorite wedding photos made into art & the Capture the Memories design spoke to me.

I gave y’all a brief preview in last week’s project 365 post. To say I love it wouldn’t be enough. I went with the small size which will be perfect to be hung in our den where we can see it every day.

Love love love it!

I loved the customer service. They previewed the art, made the photo pop just a bit more & changed the font color. They also wanted to verify that the four year old date was correct {yep, just lazy & sentimental}. Oh & they plant a tree for every purchase~ how cool is that?

I wasn’t paid anything to do this post. I haven’t talked to Paper Culture since BlogHer & they don’t know I’m writing this nor do they probably remember me. But I’m grateful for their gift card & so happy with my product that I just had to share it with y’all.
