Pen, Meet Paper + a GIVEAWAY!!!

I am so excited to share an adorable Etsy shop with you today- Pen, Meet Paper. 

My friend Megan, from M for Love is friends with Kristen, the founder of Pen, Meet Paper. When Megan contacted me about Kristen's shop and asked if I would like to co-host a giveaway with her, I checked out her products and LOVED everything I saw! I knew you guys would love them too!

Kristen Vasgaard started hand-lettering favorite quotes and song lyrics in the winter of 2012 as a creative outlet from her day job of art directing book covers. When friends and family started asking how they could buy the prints, Pen, Meet Paper was born. Kristen has expanded to include prints of states with nostalgic hand-lettered lyrics and sayings. So far she has completed 30 states, and plans to complete all 50 in the near future.

Here are just a few of the state prints. You can check out the others here!

She has 57 total prints to choose from!
Here are two others I love:
