Christmas Catalog: Dreaming Giggles Design

There is nothing more unique and appreciated than a personalized present for Christmas, and Dreaming Giggles Design is THE place to go for some breath-taking personalized artwork. Each piece is hand-painted by the very talented artist Patti Holcombe. Patti is a work-at-home, having left her job as a middle school art teacher after her daughter's birth.

Patti was kind enough to send me a canvas bow holder for my little princess. When I first removed it from its packaging, I have to admit that it literally took my breath away. The detail and quality is absolutely amazing, and the gloss varnish and hints of glitter made the piece almost magical. The picture does not do it justice - Patti's artwork is far more gorgeous.

As an added bonus, it's "personalized" for my little princess, and the colors match her room EXACTLY. We didn't even plan this - I had no idea what I was getting until I got to my mailbox, so maybe there was a bit of magic involved after all!

Sorry for the crappy picture - combination of bad lighting & an on-its-deathbed camera.

This is a gorgeous and thoughtful gift that any little girl will be delighted to find under the tree. Years after the ribbon is no longer needed for holding bows and clips, the personalized artwork will be treasured as a true keepsake - it is a gift that will survive the years. And here is your chance to win your very own custom canvas bow holder, personalized for the little princess in your life.

These are beautiful. Thanks for sharing such a great Etsy site. My little Amelia has lots of hair bows hanging on a mommy-made holder, but she would adore a pink and brown hair bow holder of her own of such sweetness. Patti has a lot more raw talent than I!

Wow, exciting! And what cute things! I love all of her work. I liked the one that said "Anna" the best, but I would want to personalize the colors with pink and brown instead... and have my daughter's name on it (which really I'd rather not list here). :) Thanks for the giveaway!! kimberly...

Hi Rita ~ another fabulous giveaway! I love the bow holders, and my girls would too. But, if I could order anything I wanted, I would have to get something for me! I'd go with the personalized canvas, and have it painted with purple and red and a queen's crown, and it would read "The Queen's Keys." I'd then ask her to add on three of the hooks like she has for the dog collar and leash. I am constantly losing my keys; but if I had such a cute plaque to hang them on, maybe that would help! :)

I like the Original Canvas Flowers Painting. Since she would personalize it, I would add our grand daughter's name and give it to her for Christmas.
