Giveaway: Lisie's Pieces

I am so excited about this giveaway! It's such a beautiful piece, and all of us in our family are excited about it! I have so much to say I'm sitting here literally having trouble putting it all into words!

Lisie's Pieces is run by a wonderful woman, Lisa Contessa, who makes these gorgeous art prints, custom, specifically for your family. She started out as a graphic designer - designing CD covers and signs and things like that, she did it for 8 years, but wasn't allowed enough creative freedom. So she started designing for friends and family, anything they could think of, she designed it. After her son was born, she started trying to market herself as a freelance designer, but things were not picking up. She needed to specialize.

Lisa's idea was a mother bird looking over her baby birds in a tree - and Mi Nidito was born!

It is a gorgeous frameable print, personalized with your family name - your "roots," how amazing is that?? Then with you and your children - differentiated by your choice of colors so you can tell which is which. Cutest of all, your and your spouse/partner's initials in a heart carved into the trunk of the tree along with your anniversary date...and below that, each child's initial in a heart as well.

No two trees are alike, and Lisa puts so much love and honor into each tree she makes, it's truly a priceless addition to your home.

See how gorgeous the tree looks surrounded by our family pictures? I am so in love with it!

These prints come in a few varieties - for weddings, parents and children, and grandparents, children and grandchildren. The cost is anywhere from $25 to $40, and if your family isn't complete? That's okay! She can easily add a bird to your tree later on for a small additional charge!

She has birds with halos and wings to add on to honor family members that are no longer with us. She has a thumbprint tree, for larger families, or for great grandmothers with many many grandchildren.  She also does Mi Nidito as a pendant, so you can wear your beautiful tree everywhere you go. You can be sure that just by chatting with Lisa, you will have a priceless family heirloom that will honor each member of your family in a special way.

The quality is better than anything I've ever seen. It's done on heavy, high quality glossy paper. The lines are very sharp and clear and I absolutely love the "carvings" on the tree trunk! Truly amazing, the amount of loving detail that goes into these pieces.
