Giveaway :: Aislinn Creations

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

{please visit Aislinn Creations here}

In high school, the theme of my senior yearbook was “Making Our Mark.” While not the theme I was voted for (but it’s still important to vote!), I nevertheless found myself thinking back on this idea throughout the years. The thought that each of us create an indelible print on the world is simultaneously daunting and liberating. It hold us accountable and it pushes for the best in us. We, each of us, leave marks on the lives of others in our interactions and sometimes those marks travel with the people we love. They move to foreign lands, they traverse the internet. If you think about it, our lives are one big journey, spanning time zones at any given moment.

Perhaps this is why I find my home base to be such an investment, such a retreat. As such, it deserves to be honored as such. Aislinn Creations provides rustic and chic home decor with an element of pure simplicity. Amanda McCoy takes burlap and transforms it into earthy and warm home decor that lends an eco-conscious sensibility without sacrificing beauty. This Coordinates pillow would make a great reminder of a favorite vacation destination or maybe the location of where you left your heart could be immortalized on this Heart in the City pillow. No matter your choice, let Aislinn Creations make their mark, for you.

Aislinn Creations is giving away two 13 x 19 personalized burlap pillow covers with inserts to two lucky winners (one cover and insert each)! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Tuesday, August 14th. Comments now closed…good luck!
Where (other than the town you currently live in) have you left your heart?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, August 20th, to see if you’ve won!

    I’ve left my heart in Rome. It’s there somewhere where the gladiators converge and the high fashion shops tangle with the most beautiful women pushing the most elegant prams (I couldn’t peek at the babies inside 🙂 Rome is where history and elegance seep from every cobblestone and I’d go back in a heartbeat. The food is, of course, the icing on the Roman cake!

    Emma says:

    Lund, Sweden. It’s an old town with cobblestone streets, leaning walls, bicycles and ivy. It has become synonymous with happy youth and I know that part of my aging heart will always reside there, no matter how hard I try to convince it to give Lund up and focus on where I currently live!

    Portland, Oregon. I used to travel and train photographers on in-hospital newborn photography. In the hospital in Portland we entered the room to photograph a newborn and the grandmother was sitting in a chair beside the bed. As we started taking photographs the baby began to cry, and the grandmother reached out her finger. The baby gripped on tight and the grandmother began to sing folk songs to soothe her grand-daughter. She sang of her beauty and wove a story of her new family. It was the dearest thing I have ever been a witness to, and while it wasn’t a tale of heartbreak I sometimes find my mind wandering back to that room and remembering the feeling and love, and dreaming of the day that my husband and I will have a moment like that.
