Farmgirl Paints

Greetings from the midwest! Kevin and I are having an absolute blast on our road trip, and I look forward to blogging all about it when we get back home in a few days. In the meantime- check out the cool cuff I got from my friend Becky yesterday:

She mailed it to me at my aunt and uncle’s house in Minnesota, and I am love, love, LOVIN’ it!

Becky only opens her Etsy shop every now and then, so it’s always fun to see her newest batch of bracelets pop up over there.


She’s having one last sale (that starts today) before she closes for the summer, so if you’re interested in checking it out, just visitĀ Farmgirl Paints on Etsy.


Becky’s running the coupon code Layla15 for 15% off all purchases from June 1st-30th, so if you see something you’d like to purchase, make sure to mention that discount code at check out.

She’s also giving away one of her cuffs here on our blog this weekend, so if you’d like to enter your name for a chance to win, just leave me a comment below between now and Sunday night (June 2) at 9pm, CST. I’ll randomly select a winner after that, and include the winner’s name at the end of my blog post on Wednesday the 5th.

Good luck and happy weekend!

  8. says

    I’ve been wanting to order a cuff from her, but haven’t figured out what I want it to say yet. Would love to win one!

  9. Jessica W.S. says

    It would be super hard to choose just one – I absolutely love leather bracelets!

  10. says

    I actually own two of Becky’s bracelets now. That aqua one above that says Perfect Peace was the latest one I “designed” since you can pick your own cuff and phrase. I can personally vouch for the amazing quality of Becky’s work and she is an absolute sweetheart to work with-she has an amazing turnaround time.
    If I were to win, my next one would say “In His Time” because its one of my favorite verses and I sang it over and over while waiting for the birth of our first daughter, whom we had some complications with.

  11. Joy Hays says

  27. says

    Becky’s work is beautiful and her blog is even more endearing. How I can relate about looking for new friends and feeling a bit lonely. My prayer a few years ago was to please find me new friends and it was answered. And also, last year, when I felt ‘abandoned’, I decided to make the effort and go out of my way to invite people on little antiquing trips and to events. It’s hard work, but it’s working for me. <3

  28. Stephanie says

    Well to say she’s my fave would be an understatement. I would be thrilled to win one!!!

  32. says

    A Midwest road trip sounds super! I’m an Indiana girl myself. :) Love, love, love Becky’s cuffs! I’ve been dreaming of one that says “extend grace” for some time now, but have yet to pull the trigger. A lesson I could use on my wrist as a daily reminder. :)

    Have a great trip! :)

  33. Sarah says

    I read Becky’s blog, so I’m excited to see a give away here! Glad you are having fun on your trip-thanks for sharing. Cheers!
