**CLOSED**GIVEAWAY: Shannon's Custom Creations



I can't craft my way out of a box. I start out with the best intentions, but I am one of those unfortunate souls born without a craft (or a math) gene. But I adore anything handmade and have the utmost appreciation and awe of those that can make something gorgeous with their own two hands.

Enter Shannon's Custom Creations. Shannon's Custom Creations is a family-owned and operated company based in London, Ontario. Shannon is a stay-at-home mom of 3 who started out selling her wares via online classifieds. With a combination of precision machinery, good old-fashioned craftsmanship, and hand-painting, Shannon offers some awesome home decorations at unbeatable prices.



Shannon sent me these hand-painted letters for my daughter, Danielle. I had no idea what she was going to send me and when I opened the package all I could think of was "Wow, she's either a stalker or she's psychic!" She managed to match my daughter's room decor almost perfectly.



My daughter's room is done in a flower/butterfly theme and each letter has hand-painted flowers, butterflies, and cat-tails and is hung on a pink ribbon. I was impressed by the care and detail Shannon put into each individual letter. No two are exactly alike but they all compliment each other.

Not only can you choose any one of the great themes Shannon offers for your individual letters like Jungle Animals, Mighty Machines, or Princess Fairies (to name only a few), you can also further customize each design personally by picking your base color from the rainbow of choices offered as well as your favorite font from 15 different samples. Not into ribbons? Then choose the recessed pins option for a floating look. Each letter is finished with a durable clear coat to keep your creation looking beautiful for years.

Besides individual letters, Shannon also makes script names or words:


Or how about a custom sign for your house?



Best part is, one of you reading this is going to get a chance to win your favorite, free! Shannon has offered one lucky reader $50 credit to her online store. Right now, Shannon is having a grand-opening sale; everything is now 50% off her already reasonable prices. That's quite a deal.
