Hi there, happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend, and your week is off to a good start. Sean’s birthday was yesterday, so my in-laws flew in to spend the weekend with us. We stayed relatively close to home, enjoying some fresh air at Greensgrow, a little shopping in center city, and a lot of yummy meals out. Unfortunately, the weekend ended with a bit of a medical scare that put baby and I in the hospital, with the birthday guy by our side. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned on here that I have type 1 diabetes and have since I was 8 years old, but I do, and it was causing some problems for me. We’re all fine now, baby is good, and I’m mostly recovered too. I’m just hoping to spend the rest of the week celebrating my wonderful husband, he couldn’t possibly be any more deserving of some special treatment.

Anywho, on that note, colors! I love that top left citrus image, and thought that with citrus season coming to an end, I bet hurry up and find a way to use it. I think the brighter citrusy tones work really well with the deeper, moody marsala hue…and who am I to argue with Pantone?

Have a nice week, and don’t forget to enter to with TWO gorgeous handmade pillows from Bonnie Kaye Studio. The giveaway ends this coming Saturday! If you can’t wait until then to shop the BKS product line, you can use the code CLEANLINEGIVEAWAY for 20% off of your purchase!

Handmade Pillow Giveaway with Bonnie Kaye Studio!

Handmade Pillow Giveaway with Bonnie Kaye Studio, Bonnie Kaye Studio, Custom Screenprinted Textiles, Philadelphia Screenprinting
This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winner, Tera. If you aren’t the lucky lady, don’t despair! You can use the code CLEANLINEGIVEAWAY for 20% anything in Bonnie’s shop from now until May 2nd. Kind of perfect for Mother’s  Day, don’t you think?

Philadelphia is by no means a small town, but things in the art/design community can sometimes feel remarkably cozy. I had JUST been admiring Bonnie’s gorgeous screen printed wrapping paper when she reached out to me about this collaboration. My answer, obviously, was a swift and decisive Y-E-S. Bonnie Kaye Studio makes beautiful things, period. She creates simple designs from nature and turns her images into a variety of innovative repeat patterns. She then screenprints and sews all of her products by hand, so each piece is truly unique. Learn more about Bonnie and the details of the giveaway after the jump!

wax seal giveaway: 3 winners!

wax seal giveaway: 3 winners! from www.blog.cleanlinestudio.com
Gah! I’m SO excited! Today I’m doing a repeat of one of afl’s most popular giveaways EVER! The occasion? Lingke, the owner of backtozero recently moved her shop away from etsy, and is now selling products on her very own website! The new site looks great, and I’m personally really inspired by how successful this business has become, practically overnight.

For those of you who weren’t around when we did the last giveaway, backtozero creates a huge variety of wax seal stamps to be used for just about anything you can dream up. Their wax seals make such a lovely addition to product packaging, valentines and wedding invitations. They’re even been featured in Southern Weddings and on the Real Simple website! One of my favorite back to zero offerings has to be the custom wax seal. If you’ve met me in person lately and I handed you a business card…yes, this is where I purchased my custom seal! Click through to enter!

Friday custom camera strap giveaway with fotostrap!

fotostrap1
TGIF, my people! We’re wrapping up a week of color with one last killer giveaway. Today’s contest comes to us from an awesome little company called fotostrap. They create absolutely beautiful camera straps from high quality materials, right here in the USA. They are available in a vast range of colors and you can even add a monogram, logo, or expression to the leather shoulder strap. One last thing worth mentioning about fotostrap is they give 10% of their proceeds to charity, specifically a charity called fotolanthropy. They are a non-profit that gives portrait sessions and short films to inspiring people who are overcoming adversity. Beautiful and charitable all rolled into one, that’s definitely my kind of company! I’m already jealous of whoever is lucky enough to win this one! You’ll find the giveaway widget after the jump, and have a nice weekend!

Thursday $100 gift card giveaway with moo!

Visit www.blog.cleanlinestudio.com and enter the $100 gift card giveaway with moo!

Happy Thursday, my dears! If you are a designer, blogger, photographer, entrepreneur, or business person of any kind, I’ve got the giveaway for you! Today our friends at moo are joining in a week of color by giving away $100 gift certificate to their store! I still remember when I first heard of moo. Around 2008, My musician roommate at the time used them to print some stickers and mini cards for her budding act. As a designer and small business owner, I see (and appreciate) kind of a lot of business cards, so it’s no small feat that they have stuck with me for nearly 8 years. Moo makes way more products today than they did back then. I’m especially into their luxe collection for business cards, available in several sizes. These are super sturdy and have a “fill color,” which gives the effect of edge painting without the big fat price tag.

So, for today’s giveaway, sky is the limit when it comes to color. Moo will print whatever colors you can dream up as stickers, flyers, postcards and so much more. With new years just around the corner, new business cards are near the top of my to-do list. I hope this giveaway gives you the motivation you might need if you;re in a similar boat! You’ll find the widget to enter this giveaway after the jump!

Anyway, they’re simple, durable and come in a wide range of colors and very tasteful, chic patterns. The bags hold up to 50lbs and best of all, they fit into a small pouch so you can keep one in your purse and always have it with you.
