Sarah Jane Studios Giveaway

Giveaway: $50 dollars in Shop Credit to Sarah Jane Studios,
AND a special offer for all CJane readers. For the next week only, CJane readers get a FREE CARD of choice when they mention CJane in their order. 

It is very fitting that we start this party with Sarah Jane Studios. She is the designer behind that beautiful CJane Soiree invitation that I just can't stop staring at. Her ability to make words and ideas into something visual is, well, amazing.

Sarah Jane is an artist and mother of 3 small children. She loves to create designs that remind us of childhood. Her shop was created in an effort to create art that she wasn't seeing in the stores. Her work reflects the vintage storybook feel, but with fresh color and modern design. You can buy her children's wall art and paper goods directly through her etsy shop. Sarah jane also has a career in illustrating children's books, and has illustrated the book FULL OF LIFE and is currently illustrating the children's picture book CHRISTMAS GOODNIGHT which will release in Fall 2011. You can also follow her on her blog where she documents her life as a wife and mother of 3.
I personally can't wait for her new Retro Line.

CJane will also receive $50 dollars in Shop Credit to Sarah Jane Studios.

  98. The artwork is beautiful! I loved them all! The one that brings immediate memories of childhood is the "Little Artist" as I have been drawing, etc. since a small child. The other print image is the one on "Surprise Kisses", "I Love You My Dear" and "I Am Yours" as I have a photo from my childhood in the 1940's of me visiting what must have been a children's zoo and I am playing with a little deer. I remember a first train ride and going all the way to Colorado (I lived in Minnesota at the time)and being motion sick - well you can see that has brought memories! :<)

  99. "little artist, pink" is pretty much a true rendition of me as a little girl. I was always laying on the floor, propped up on my elbows, feet swinging behing me and a fresh box of crayola crayons at my side. believe it or not, I even had a squeaky little giraffe from my toddlerhood - I think they still make it, she's called "Sophie the Giraffe" and she was from France.
