Could you use a fun and delightful painting to brighten up your child’s room? Or to give as a gift to a child you know? If so, you have come to the right place today.

Anne Marie Criswell is a talented Utah artist who specializes in custom canvas paintings and murals for children's rooms and nurseries. If you have a mural in mind for a wall or room in your home, you can find Anne Marie’s contact information on her website here. She will be happy to give you a quote. Go here to look at some of the unique murals she has done.

Today Anne Marie is offering a 12x12 canvas painting such as these to one lucky winner. You can enter to win the canvas painting for you (or someone you know) up to THREE times. This giveaway is open to those who are living in the United States.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry visit Criswell Creations’ website here. Look at all of her cute paintings. Then come back to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and describe the painting you would like if you win.
Example: Jane Doe: Tugboat Toot Toot Toot

For a third entry, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and describe your childhood room.
Example: Jane Doe: My little sister Traci and I shared a room. We had bright red shag carpet, the walls were pink (as were the bedspreads), and we had a wallpaper strip which displayed all of the letters of the alphabet. After the lights were out Traci would ask me to tell her the “Bobby Story”—which consisted of stories I would create each night about a boy named, you guessed it, Bobby.

The winners of the canvas painting from Criswell Creations will be announced Thursday, April 9th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to check out our new giveaway for the day. And don’t forget to enter a mom you know in our Mother’s Day Contest. For more details, go here.

Trieste Phillipps: My childhood room had a couple of different designs/themes. I had blown-up crayons at one point and crayon drapes. I loved the color blue so my walls were painted a light blue.

Micklena Frampton: Pink walls, Pink Carpet, and Pink Bedding. Me and my other two sisters had to share a room so dad built a 3 story bunkbed. AWESOME :)

Lindsey said...

Lindsey Wells: My childhood room was purple and turquoise. My mom painted it for me while I was away one weekend and it had matching bedding. It was awesome!

Kristen said...

Kristen Preston- growing up, I shared a room with my two sisters. It was a small room, but we made space by having a trundle bed that we would pop out at night for the youngest sister. When all the beds were up, there was no space to walk on the floor. The beds were so close to each other that it was like having one giant bed! We had fun in that room. Our favorite game was to make believe we had been snowed in and making do with what was in our room.

Aubrey Jones: My family moved so many times that I don't have a "childhood room." I had so many in so many houses that when we finally moved in the middle of my sophmore year I wanted to paint my room black. but my mom said no, so I settled with black wallpaper with little green and red flowers all over it on the wall behind my bed with black bedding on the bed. the rest of the walls were grean to match the wallpaper. The efect was really nice.

Jennifer Speakman: I shared a room with my twin sister in the basement. We each had white daybeds with purple bedspreads that my mom made us. We had one wall that had purple wallpaper on it the rest were white. We didn't have padding underneath our carpet because our basement flooded alot so we had to be able to roll the carpet up during a flood.

Deborah said...

Deborah Andreasen: Our dad was in the army, so we moved a lot. There were five of us kids then (there are six now) and we always shared a room with at least one other sibling, sometimes two. To make things fair we rotated periodically so that we all had a turn sharing with each other. So I never had a "childhood room," but lots of rooms and lots of memories.

Amy Howard: I thought my room was so beautiful and now that I'm an adult I realize it was quite "buzy". The walls were wallpapered. On the bottom was a blue colored print with small white flowers on the top was rainbows. There was a border in between the two and I can't remember what it was. I had boring brown shag carpet. My bedspread was blue with lace trim.
