Birds in the Trees: Leen the Graphics Queen review/giveaway

First I want to point out there is a new Nifty Nappy giveaway: Coupon Mommy 2...now 3! 
------------------------------------------------------------

I want to give you a little piece of SPRING!
So first I need to introduce you to Leen...the Graphics Queen


I asked Leen a few questions, here is our little interview! 


Who is the mastermind behind your products? Well, I guess you could say that I am the mastermind (I like the sound of that!) since I am the graphic designer.  I often see something in nature or anywhere else for that matter and think "I can make a design out of that!"

How long have you been selling your product?  I've been making decals and signs for over 13 years!  I can't believe it's been that long.  When you love your job like I do time flies right by!

How has your product evolved from the fist time you made it?  When I first started making decals in 1996 vehicle graphics were very popular.  No one would have thought to put designs on their walls.
Has it changed in design or anything?  The popular designs change one or two times a year.  Monograms and nature scenes are extremely popular now.

What do you love most about your product?  I think that your home should reflect your personality and wall decals make it easy and inexpensive to do just that.

What makes your product stand out from the rest?  *brag about it, it is ok!  :)  I would have to say my years and years of experience make my product stand out from the rest.  It takes a long time, hard work and design experience to create beautiful wall decals.  If you haven't been in the business very long you really can't accurately answer customers questions, know the correct application techniques, etc. 



Fun huh?  Leen is awesome to work with.  I was super excited when I saw Leen's graphics in her Etsy shop.  I LoVe vinyl signs and such.  I have always wanted to get a nice big "something or other" to put on my walls.  The little tree that we picked is perfect for spring.  

Cute huh?  I love it!  Leen helped me pick some good spring colors.  
These are the colors you will get...
I was super excited to get my review one, but as I thought about it I decided to ask if they are easily moveable.  See, we might be moving... I didn't want to get an adorably cute tree just put up on the wall and then move!
Leen was great about replying to me.  (great customer service!) She told me, "They are removable but not reusable. So once you take them down, that's it!" 
So needless to say I will not be putting the tree up.  But eventually it will go in my little girls' room.  
Leen was super awesome though and she had included 2 extra little birdies in with the items.  


I thought they were adorable and decided to throw them up on my computer armoire so we can have a little spring peeking at us!  




It comes all rolled up in a nice tube, so that it doesn't get ruined!   Plus shipping was very prompt!  :)  








Leen sends along very clear instructions on how to put these up.  










See not hard at all!  



I have a mommy bird and a cute little baby birdie! :) 


They are loving watching all the snow melt around here!  :)  


I had an amazing experience with Leen... you can to!
