Giveaway: Jess LC

This giveaway is no longer accepting entries. Thank you to everyone who participated!

We’ve yet to get started on that console makeover (blue or yellow? blue? no, yellow?), although with any luck, we’ll solidify the color choice this weekend. We’ve been embracing our cherry wood for now (as we have for years!), but the real star on that entry wall is our most recent art purchase, Just Keep Going, by Jess LC.

A jewelry and accessories designer by trade, Jess is constantly expanding and evolving, and most recently, she created the Wells collection in collaboration with Ampersand Design Studio. With Jess’ mission to help people design a life with intention, the Wells collection interprets those intentions through inspiring, frame friendly 16″x20″ art prints. (Learn more about the collection’s story right here.) Alongside Just Keep Going is Be Brave, Be Present and Dream Bigger, from left to right:

But let’s talk about what’s in it for you. We’ve teamed up with Jess to treat one lucky reader to their own grey and gold Just Keep Going print, our personal favorite with an encouraging message. We’re so lucky to call Jess a friend, and as she’s reminded us (both personally and through her written words), when you get knocked down, get back up. Dust yourself off, and just keep going.

The details:

  • Up for grabs: One lucky winner will receive a 16″x20″ Just Keep Going print from the Jess LC Wells collection.
  • To enter: Simply comment on this post and let us know, what’s your motto? You know, your daily mantra – those words you (strive to) live by? Maybe you firmly believe that when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. Or maybe, you simply believe in the power of clean skivvies (like mom always said).
  • For additional entries: Share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter, then come back and leave a comment letting us know. (One additional comment for each method – up to 2 extra entries!)
  • Giveaway ends: Tuesday, May 8th, 6pm EST
  • Shipping restrictions: Anywhere in the world

The lucky dog winner will be selected using and announced on Wednesday, May 9th. Good luck and happy entering!

    JUST found your site & love to read these comments!

    My mantra has to be “I may not understand know, but things work out just the way they are supposed to be.”

    One of my other favorites (for times that require the above) is “Welcome to the hallway.” The hallway is the void between the door that closes & the window that opens; it can be dark!ReplyCancel

    Something that I always live by is this:
    Pray about everything, big and small. I have been amazed through my life how true this is. God cares about even the smallest things in our lives. Thanks for this great giveaway!ReplyCancel

    I’ve been struggling with a lot of professional and emotional paralysis this year and I just discovered my mantra this weekend – one I believe God is giving me Himself: “Come Awake.”ReplyCancel

    Everything will be okay in the end. If it isn’t okay, it isn’t the end. :)ReplyCancel

  • Clare - May 7, 2012 - 11:06 AM

    My current mantra is “You have responsibilities!”. Love these prints!ReplyCancel

    “The horses don’t care that it is Christmas”

    Seems weird, but it was a daily saying in my house growing up. It was my Dad’s way of reminding me that there are people (or animals!) depending on you every day and it is your job to fulfill your commitments to them. I say it to myself often because in the midst of stress, troubles, or celebrations, it reminds me of the bigger picture.ReplyCancel

    ‘Be Content’ – I try to remind myself of this everyday. I have a wonderful life and I need to not forget it!ReplyCancel

  • Kalli - May 7, 2012 - 2:11 PM

    Ha, that pretty much IS my motto lately, since I’ve been suffering a lot of disappointments this year – basically, just keep putting one foot in front of the other. That’s all I can be sure of right now, that time will pass, things eventually have to improve, right?ReplyCancel

  • Sarah W. - May 7, 2012 - 3:30 PM

    My motto would be is “All you need is love”ReplyCancel

  • allison - May 7, 2012 - 3:58 PM

    every morning before i get out of bed i say “today is awesome.” i started saying that when i was dealing with some major anxiety, and i’ve kept it up ever since.

    my other mantra is “make it happen”ReplyCancel

  • Emily Klaczynsky - May 7, 2012 - 4:16 PM

    My personal reminder is that “It’s not suppossed to be easy.” Sometimes when things get tough, I want to just quit until I remind myself that it’s not all suppossed to be easy. Being challenged and uncomfortable is a great growing experience!ReplyCancel

  • Diana - May 7, 2012 - 4:56 PM

    Love the print! I don’t really have a “saying” per se. However, when growing up our family saying was “Do unto others, as you would have them do to you.” Which really makes you think before you act or say something.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel - May 7, 2012 - 6:09 PM

    What an awesome poster! Something I like to keep in my mind is “treat people the way you want to be treated” I remember my mom telling me this as a kid and I think our world would be a much better place if people were just kind to each other.ReplyCancel

  • Jaclyn - May 7, 2012 - 9:19 PM

    Lately my mottos have been:
    “Be Jaclyn.”
    “If you’re not failing every once and a while, you’re not trying anything new.”ReplyCancel

    “be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” –plato

    love the print!ReplyCancel

  • Becca - May 8, 2012 - 10:09 AM

    I tend to worry a lot, so I don’t really have a motto so much as an image. When I get really freaked out about something I think “ocean waves” – the sound it brings up is soothing and I try to breathe in time with the waves breaking.ReplyCancel

  • Nicole J - May 8, 2012 - 12:12 PM

    I pinned the artist right after reading this post, so am so glad to see it as a giveaway!!

    My life’s mantra is – and has been, for quite some time – “Be compassionate, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle.” It reminds me that people aren’t jerks just to be jerks, but that everyone’s life/personality/struggles are formed by their own battles.ReplyCancel

  • Tabitha - May 8, 2012 - 12:16 PM

    My motto – love what you do, do what you love. I think it’s super important to absolutely LOVE what you do, not only for a living, but in life as a whole. <3ReplyCancel

    “Fortune favors the brave” – an oldie, but a goodie.ReplyCancel
