The 18th Mommy Review

The 33rd Mommy Giveaway


Today's Mommy Review is for an X&O Elephant and an X&O Crocodile Print from CiCi Art Factory!

Liz Clay is the very talented artist behind Cici Art Factory. She has created so many cute, fun, and original paintings for children's rooms at a very reasonable price. From her Lotsa series that features the cutest little designs (from bottles to birds), to her prints that have such fun animals and children, to her customized art where you choose out of 12 different themes and get to customize the child on there to look like your own! You will be able to make your child's room a lot more bright and fun!

I am so happy to have her X & O Elephant and Crocodile Prints. They add so much personality to Calvin's little space. Their fun and bold colors really do the trick. Plus these prints are definitely high quality, printed on heavy, archival paper, you will get your years (and years) out of them. I also like how she signed each print at the very bottom right. That is why I didn't cover up the white border that is put around the prints to make them easier for framing. I think seeing her signature really adds a more personal touch that I really like. Though her art seems to be more personal, even without the signature. All of her art is beautiful, fun, and definitely worth buying for your little one's room! :)

Tara said...

Since I can't choose the elephant that was mentioned, I would have to choose either the 'Animal Fire Squad' or 'Random Frogs'...the fire squad because of the elephant, and the frog pic because it is cool looking.

I really like the Birds nest. My hair has even looked like that before but fortunately a bird never laid eggs in it.
I will say after my mom cut all 5 members of my families hair, we swept the hair into my flower garden. Later that summer we found a hummingbird nest made from our hair. I still have its stored in tupperware and its so cute all of us after colored hair so you can tell whose is whos

My favorites have to be the portraits, especially 'pirate' and 'brothers on the moon'. Not only are they great pieces of art, but they would definately encourage my little guy to dream up wonderful stories related to the portraits (and I'm sure demand that I also make up stories for him, lol). Great giveaway, thank you for the opportunity to enter! I would love to have prints for my son's room!
