I don't know about you all, but I am one of those people who likes to decorate! I love to decorate for parties and such, but I especially like to decorate my room! Decorating is one of those opportunities you have to take an empty space and make it your own by adding bits of you throughout. I especially love to decorate with inspiring and encouraging word art that I have either made myself or gotten from a talented and creative artist.
Etsy is one of those places where you can find the most unique creations and is the perfect place to look when searching for something to add to your room or home decor. As a new Etsy owner myself I love the thought of a community where like minded creatives can come together and do what they love and I especially love the idea of supporting other small business owners.
A few months back I discovered ByAnnaLinnea on Instagram. Turns out that the owner of this darling Etsy Shop is actually from where I live, was homeschooled, and has two siblings who graduated highschool with me (more information than you needed), but aside from those fun facts, she creates the most original works of art, from water color paintings and lettering, lettered wood pieces, knit scarves, hats, and headbands. She actually opened up By Anna Linnea in honor of her late grandmother who used to crochet gifts for people.
A few weeks ago she contacted me on Instagram and asked if I would like to pick out a piece from her shop to share on my blog and socials. Of course I said yes, because I love all of her pieces but I also wanted to share her creations with you all. I had a fun time styling the "It Is Well" wood piece and deciding where I wanted to put it in my room at college. This piece is simple, so it matches with everything and I love the dark stain of the wood, plus the hand lettering is spot on! On top of that, this is also one of my favorite old hymns, so the words "it is well with my soul" are such an inspiration to see everyday!
Make sure to go check out By Anna Linnea on Etsy and Instagram. If you find any pieces that you can't live without (because lets be honest, all of them are perfect) than you can use the discount code:
