Sponsor Giveaway: Simply Silhouettes

OK—have you noticed the wonderful return of Silhouettes?

What is it about those simple, black side views that are so deeply moving.  A silhouette is a declaration of love.  Love for the giver and the receiver.  I remember my mother sat for one a long time ago—oh how I wish I had it today.  Purchasing a silhouette portrait is an investment in a family heirloom.  I plan on getting one done of the Peach and I plan on doing it through Simply Silhouettes.

Angela and her sweetie, the dyanamic duo behind Simply Silhouettes, create a beautiful basic portrait and turn it into something even more delicious, such as jewelry, stunning stationary, wall art and a host of other amazing things that will be the perfect present for Father’s Day as well as gifts for yourself.

Mr. Dottie, turn your head away…  you have to admit that these cuff-links would be an AMAZING Father’s Day present.

And those bottom cuffl-inks—you can change out the silhouette as your child gets older. Genius. Nay. Super Genius.

Simply Silhouette takes this Victorian art form and gives it some very charming twists—such as doing portraits in wonderful different colors like green or a very sophisticated gray.  And Angela takes it out of the frame and into things you use very day—like these adorable trays!

Get a load of this slice of awesome—putting a silhouette on a background of glorious chevrons for the most marvelous iPhone skins.

You must check out their Website and terrific blog which tracks silhouette trends! They are popping up in the most fun places.

Who says it has to be just about the kids?

Hurrah hurrah! Our friends at Simply Silhouettes are doing a great giveaway with us—offering a $50 gift certificate for any products on their wonderful online store!

Also, you can score a 15 percent discount now through June 20th if you mention Modern Kiddo when making your purchase—and you’ll receive a re bate in 24 hours. Woohoo!!!

If you are going to do this before Father’s Day, I suggest you get your order in early as these customized beauties can take roughly 3-4 weeks to create.  And they give great tips on how to take that perfect silhouette photo they need to create a kiddo masterpiece to boot!
