Hatch Prints: My Favorite Hand-Lettering and a GIVEAWAY

I met Katrina in Dallas almost a year ago.  I loved getting to know one of the ladies I followed for so long.  She's an ND grad, and I always feel I have a connection to the Irish since my sister went there. I know, I know, it's a bit silly.  Oh well.  

Katrina is a talented artist and recently opened up her own shop at Etsy called Hatch Prints.  She hand-letters beautiful quotes, and sometimes I think she picked them just for me.

I ordered a few prints a couple of weeks ago and have just recently found places for them in my home.

"Offer it up" is one I knew needed to be in a prime location, so it's near my kitchen, where I spend a ton of my waking hours.  It's where I'm constantly asked for another cup of milk, where that very cup is often spilled, and where I have to always remind myself to be more patient!

This quote of Edith Stein really hits home.  As one who is constantly striving to be more productive (sometimes at the expense of more important things), it's a beautiful reminder of my true vocation...being a mother.  That's all my children need...for me to be their mom.
And this one..
I just love it.  So simple, yet so beautiful!  It's in my dining room.

I've always been a quote person...writing them down in various places, especially while in high school, to serve as reminders or encouragement.  I love cards with beautiful quotes.  I have bought countless books solely made up of them.  So, when Katrina opened her shop, I was so excited!

Now, I have her beautiful hand-lettered prints throughout my home...as a reminder of what's important and of a beautiful friend who lives just a few states away!

She's generously offering one of you two prints of your choosing!  All you have to do is enter the giveaway here or on Instagram (or both!).  If you'd rather just purchase a print now, use THEFISKFILES15 for 15% off your purchase!
