So the most recent Minted.com challenge partnered with Pottery Barn Kids and Teen to create art to sell in their stores. They hit over 7,000 submissions and are only selecting 50 winners so the odds are not in most artist's favor.
Yet I can't resist the challenge. Not only the slim odds, but also because I really wanted to focus on what I would want for my own kids, and something I'd be proud to sell whether through PB or on my own. I strived to communicate to both my kids how much they mean to me and how excited I am to be their guide on this journey that is Life.
As far as the sentiments, I did not want to use anything familiar or that may have copyright issues so I dusted off my writing skills as well. It took many passes, but I'm happy with the results.
Please vote if you are eligible (and want to)! I'll keep you posted on the results.
