Our NEW Sunshine Collection & A GIVE AWAY!

We are so excited about two of our new signs that will be part of our Sunshine Series.
All of the signs in this collection will be 2×2 signs with their custom frames.
 They are as happy & cheerful as they look, and I know you’ll love them as much as we do.
I sure wish I’d had these in my oldest son’s nursery way back when I sang him to sleep with this song!
You may remember us introducing this sign in our shop last spring.
It has been a favorite to many, so we’re keeping it and just adding the others to it to make a collection.
We think any of these would look amazing in any room of your home.
In fact, we think they’d look so amazing…we’ve decided to give one of the colorful ones away.
Just to clarify…
You’re entering to win either the YELLOW “You are my Sunshine” sign or the GRAY “You make me Happy” sign.
{This give away is for USA readers only because shipping rates are ridiculous.}
Here’s what you need to do to enter to win….
Leave me a comment telling me which one you’d pick if you won and where you’d put it in your home.
Want a double chance to win?
Spread the word about the give away and leave another comment telling me where you shared.
Pinterest.  Instagram. Facebook. Your blog.
You pick!
~I’ll announce the winner in the next couple of days~
Here’s one more look at the entire series…

I would put it in her room which is pink, yellow and green. When she was a baby – I intended to put the words to the song as sort of a painted boarder around her room, but never got it done as I had 3 kids ages 0,1,2 at the time.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win your beautiful work!
