GIVEAWAY - Keep Calm & Blog On

i'm decorating my new desk & crafting area, so i turned to etsy for some inspiration. my mantra here lately has been "keep calm & carry on." i know you've all seen the prints. they are too cute & too wonderful...not only is the message inspirational, but the color choices...oh, the color choices!

anyways, while browsing on etsy last weekend, i came across the keep calm shop. they print the traditional "keep calm & carry on" posters, but they also have a wide variety of fun & whimsical "keep calm" inspired posters as well. i made a list of what i liked & what i wanted to purchase, but i didn't see anything about blogging so i asked.

ask and ye shall receive!

the fabulous people at the keep calm shop created this:

OK, let's inspirational mantra...""Don't ask what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who come alive."

Also, my fav poster over at that KEEP CALM darling site is the KEEP CALM AND DRINK COFFEE! Too precious! Especially in the turquoise!

So cute! I'm definitely trying to catch up on this blogging thing. I'm still just trying to figure out how to add things on my

My mantra: Always be the best YOU that you can be!

I went to the etsy shop, and I wish that they had Keep calm and Dream would so go with my blog post for today....but how about keep calm and travel on!

Love this poster! I would have to say my inspirational mantra is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson--"do not go where the path may lead. go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." The idea that we are encouraged to make our own way and not always follow the footsteps of others ahead.

And I think as a photographer, the "Keep calm and Snap on" one would be perfect!

My personal mantra is... hmm... probably "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." (Bill Cosby) I don't know if that's a mantra, but it's definitely mine :)

I think my fav from her shop has to be the "Keep Calm and SHOP On." Duh! Although the one with the PUMPS is cute too.... so many choices!

OH MY! I love this! Was this poster made for us or what???

I don't have a personal "mantra", but I do have a few quotes I try to live by. Here's a fav:

Everyone is given a place. You should be what that place needs. [Wendell Berry]

If I could pick one poster from the shop, it'd probably be "Keep Calm and Drink Tea" and I'd hang it in my kitchen :) But then again, I also love the drink beer poster. My husband could find a nice spot for it!
