conversation piece quote blocks {birthday bash giveaway}

We're so excited to start our birthday month off with a great giveaway! Several months ago a group of awesome ladies I work with at church got together to make these darling quote blocks for birthday gifts for the teenage girls at church. It is part of our theme for the year.

We packaged them up and have a whole year's worth of gifts ready to go!


My friend Lisa, who put the project together, had so much fun doing it she decided to make a few more, and from there her Etsy shop was born! The name of her shop, Conversation Piece, comes from Lisa's personal motto: "Surround yourself with uplifting words." And she makes it really easy to do that with all her cute blocks and awesome quotes! She also uses the cutest patterned papers. They make really sweet gifts as well. Here are a few of my favorites. . .


Conversation Piece is giving away a regular sized Conversation Block of your choice (plus free shipping!) to one lucky winner. To enter, just visit Lisa's Etsy shop and leave us a comment with your favorite quote from one of her blocks or wall hangings. You can also get an extra entry by marking her shop as a favorite on your Etsy account and leaving us a second comment. We'll pick our winner this Saturday, so be sure to leave your comment by Friday, July 8th at 11:59pm PT. Good luck!

I can't believe that I am the first comment for this wonderful give away! I love all of them but two of the conversation blocks really stood out for me-"Life is to be ENJOYED, not just endured."
and "RELAX, It doesn't get much better than this!"

That is a really tough choice, but I think my favorite is the integrity quote. My back up is the Together piece. Love them both!
