have a handmade holiday: win a print and a tea towel by leah duncan!

November 22nd, 2010 · 48 Comments

This contest is now CLOSED!!! CONGRATS TO Elise C. of Foxboro, MA. who won this one of a kind print and tea towel by  Leah Duncan!

Originally from South Carolina, Leah Duncan now lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and family of cats and foster puppies.  Leah received her bachelors in commercial printing, and has since developed a multitude of skills in illustration, design, and textiles.  Inspired by the small moments in her life life, nature, folk art, children’s illustrations, and currently southwestern culture, her style is both delicate and unexpectedly quirky.  All of her prints are original ink drawings that are scanned, digitally colored, and then silkscreened or giclee printed.

Lucky for you, Leah Duncan has donated one of her beautiful prints as well as a tea towel for today’s giveaway!  This 5×7 print is made with pigment inks that guarantee years of quality and bright colors.  The tea towels are made from organic fair trade absorbent cotton and measure to about 18″ x 30″ to allow for shrinkage in the wash.  The towels are perfect for drying hands or dishes…or even as a handsome wall hanging!  With the next few months being filled with house guests and hours in the kitchen, what a perfect opportunity to amp up your decor and impress your company with Leah’s quaint works of art.

Here’s how it works!
