If Your Dreams don’t Scare You…{Giveaway!}

Are you a Quotes addict? It’s okay, raise your hand (my hand it proudly in the air right now!). Us Quotes-addicts tend to share our favorite quotes on a regular basis because we find them so inspiring! If you fall into this category, then you are going to LOVE what I have for you today!

Taking a look at Karla Storey's hand lettered quotes...

If you follow my Instagram account, you know that I LOVE quotes!  I have so many quotes that I find inspiring and could easily lose hours on Pinterest just searching quotes.

Of all my Pinterest boards, I revisit my two quote boards the most (my Self-Love Quotes board and my Inspiring Quotes board).  I love how an encouraging or motivating sentence can lift your spirits, reground you, or alter your course in the matter of seconds!

Lately, I’ve been wanting to get my favorite quotes out of my Pinterest board and where I can see them.  I’ve started a quote journal, which I’ll share soon (probably on my Instagram, more so than my blog, so be sure to follow me there!), but I also want to get them on my wall in my office area.

A few weeks ago, I discovered the work of Karla Storey.  She’s an amazing artist that specializes in artistic hand lettering.  Her work encompasses exactly what I love…motivating quotes!  

Check out a few examples from her SHOP

Karla and I have been emailing over the past few weeks and she’s a total sweetheart.  I love when you find out the person behind the product is awesome!  It just makes me love their products even more!

After browsing through her shop, I knew I had to have this one…

This is one of my favorite quotes!  It’s so true…if you want to challenge yourself and make amazing things happen, you have to push yourself and that should be scary (I have a whole post planned on this topic for next month that I’m really excited to share…that’s how much this topic means to me!)

I have lots of exciting, yet completely scary things going on in my life right now, so this is the perfect reminder for me to stay the course and make.it.happen!  The fact that it’s in gold just takes this over the top for me!!

And now, dear friends, this is where you come in!  Karla has very sweetly offered to GIVE AWAY one of her prints to ONE lucky reader!!  And..YOU get to pick the print!  You’ll be able to browse her shop and select your favorite and Karla will make it for you and send directly to you ready to be framed.  Please note that the contest is open to US Residents only!

    This is so exciting! Karla does amazing work! How fascinating that she turns quotes into art to touch peoples hearts even more! I adore quotes, in fact I’ve started a journal for them too !!! And have a quotes section in my membership page for members to read and add their own quotes too, thats how much I love quotes because they’ve always inspired me and motivated me during times I needed it most. Words are SO powerful. And I absolutely love the quote you fell in love with too. It’s true, if your dreams aren’t scaring you then there’s an issue, because the scarier it is then the more it will challenge and grow you as a person!

      That’s so cool that you have a quotes journal too!! I also dabble in doing hand lettering (nothing to compare to Karla though, lol) as a means of letting loose some of my creative energies, so I like to try to do them in pretty fonts and lettering in my journal, but I have a backlog of quotes I want to add, lol. Just need more time!! I completely agree with how powerful words are…after reading through some of my favorite quotes, I can go from feeling rather uninspired, to feeling like I can climb mountains and conquer the world in the snap of my fingers! :)

    I love prints like this! Basically I love all wall art, but gold and quotes are my favorite. Any of these would look wonderful in our house.

      I completely agree…an inspiring quote in gold is pretty much perfection to me, lol. I should’ve noted in the post that the pictures don’t really do them justice!! :)

      I love hand lettering too! I’ve watched some videos & gotten a book or two from Amazon, so I *dabble* in it, but nothing like Karla! Her work is an inspiration!

    My hand is also raised for great quotes! I think that’s the real reason Pinterest drew me in in the first place.
    One of my favorites of all time continues to be “Old ways won’t open new doors.” I forget who said it of course. lol
    Entering the contest now!
