Giveaway: Grace Hester Designs Poster!

**Update 10/17/10: congrats Jenny Rebecca who is the winner of this contest. Post announcing winner is here.  Thanks for your interest!***

Hurrah! Hurrah! We have a humdinger of a grand giveaway for you, my friends!

A gorgeous post from Grace Hester Designs!  Our gal, Grace is kind enough to give away a customized “Print for a Little Reader” poster (11 X 14).  The giveaway winner can go with the titles shown or provide their own list for a personalized print for their own little boo.  Oh, how great is that–to do a personalized one! List out those books that you’ve read HUNDREDS of times until the edges are frayed and the binding hopelessly broken in.  Such a great childhood keepsake, if you ask me. And Grace will even let you pick out the colors so they’ll match your nursery to boot. Way to be a rockstar, Grace!

Grace was inspired by her sweet daughters’ current and all-time favourite reads and designed this poster that lists the titles in different typefaces. What a great way to encourage an appreciation for typography to our children.   All materials used are archival-safe. Print is made on archival-quality photographic paper with a lustre finish that really allows the vibrancy of the colors to show. The choice of materials also makes this a keepsake that can be passed down through the years.

Isn’t that poster just the dandiest?  Oh, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of all the goodness that is Grace Hester. The artsy lady’s fabulous work has been feature all over the Web on Ohdeedoh, CoolMomPicks, and oodles of other places in the know.  Here is a wee sample of her other goodies she has available in her Etsy store. Prepare to be awestruck, folks.

I know right? Adorable.  Really, you should go check out Grace’s Etsy shop right now. I’ll wait…

OK, now how to get this wonderful one of a kind poster, you can:

  1. Leave a comment (natch) and tell us about your favorite children’s book!
  2. “Like” Grace Hester on Facebook (she’s so likeable anyway, so that shouldn’t be a problem!)
  3. If you already follow us on twitter, tweet about this giveaway—don’t forget to include @modernkiddo in the tweet please!
  4. “Like” this postie

If you do all five you’ll be entered five times. Woot!

Good luck!
