Be Inspired. {Show Off Arts Giveaway}

UPDATE:  Congratulations Rachel Abbott!  You have been selected as the winner of this giveaway.

Our homes reflect who we are. When people walk thru my door, I want them to see 3 things:

  1. We love Jesus
  2. We love others
  3. We need to sweep more often.

Ha! I might need to work on my number 3.

I absolutely love color. I want  my home to be a happy place that is warm and inviting. Right now, it smells a little like my son’s feet, but I think you get the point.

I am very excited to present Show Off Arts (a long time advertiser) two new lines, the first is called Stripes. I love the message behind the name:

The new “Stripes” series which is built around Isaiah 53:5, “By His stripes, we are healed.”  Each image in the group features a key Scripture verse set against rows of colorful “stripes” to remind us of the great love shown in Jesus’ sacrifice.

There are four different designs in this series, each with a key verse of Scripture. We have the “Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5); “Be Strong and Courageous (Joshua 1:9); “Love Is” (1 Corinthians 13); and “Whatever” (Philippians 4:5.)

This series also features a Show Offs Art first – a canvas designed primarily for a boy’s room. I had so many momma’s say “I love what you do, but I have a boy.” And frankly I struggled a bit because our colors and style do not often lend themselves to what you would typically see in a boy’s room. But as I began to pray about the “Stripes” series, I started thinking that maybe this was the place for a piece for boys. And so became “Be Strong” which features Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Super fun and inspiring, huh?

I also love the new bright, colorful Corrie Ten Boom canvas and especially her words. I read her writing when I was a young girl and she’s always been a hero of mine.

I just love the quote from Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch Christian who helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust, featured on this design.  It reminds me that the “why” is that God has a purpose that is bigger than me and bigger than what I can understand.  God’s view is based on the eternal, not the temporary.  He is working all the time.  Nothing is happening in our lives that He has not already purposed for us.  Our responsibility is to trust Him and the plan (the best plan possible) we know He has for our lives.

Quote reads “Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.”

The canvases come in these great sizes: Fun Size 7″x11″x0.75″ – Standard size is 14″ x 22″ x 1.5″ – Large is 26″ x 40″ x 1.5″

Show Off Arts sent me the fun size in this canvas. It adds a happy pop of color in my kitchen:

Today, I’m excited to giveaway a $50 gift certificate to one lucky reader. Take a look around and leave a comment with what would make your home look happy.

This giveaway ends on Thursday.

    I love Show Off Arts’ dog tags! I’ve bought them for my mom and me. I’d like to add the Tree one to my necklace collection.

    Angela E. says

    It’s so hard to pick just one, they are all great! I’ve really been wanting to decorate with more Scripture around our home and would love to win this!! Thanks!

    Kris says

    The “Love Is” stripes canvas is my favorite (although I like many of them a lot!). It would look awesome in my newly painted bathroom!! A wonderful and necessary daily reminder for our family!

    melissa says

    How awesome! As I am consistently trying to preemptively strike on the 6th grade “push-back” I’m sure will come too soon with my son (he’s in kindergarten), I love the “Strong” canvas. In the same vein, I would love “Whatever” for my daughters’ room (they are 3 yrs and 20mos). Then there is the Heart and Globe….Awesome stuff, how big God is. Awesome, awesome…..

    Rhonda says

    I would love to have the Whatever canvas. That verse has always been special to me. My twin sister was losing her battle with ovarian cancer and wrote this verse in letters to her two young daughters. This is how she wanted them to live…and they are.

  6. 19

    Rachel says

    I like the daisy plaque. It seems to sum up my relationship with God perfectly. “For I know the plans I have for you…” That’s why I trust in God.

  7. 22

    Mel says

    It’s a toss up for me between the Love Is Canvas and the Green Cross Canvas. They have some super cute stuff!

  8. 25


    Ah, I love the COLOR mixed with scripture! We are intentional about posting scripture in our home. I would love the Joshua 1:9 for my baby boy’s room!

  9. 28


    I love them all too! WIth 3 dogs, 3 cats, 5 kids including two sets of twins and one husband – what would really make my home look happy is: a maid! 😀

    Danielle Puffer says

    We have their hope faith love plaques in my daughters room- it is such a simple and joyful reminder of where to place our minds and hearts :) I agree the colors are awesome!

    I just checked out their websites and would LOVE some of their candles to burn at our couples and faith groups we host here at the house through the fall and winter months (here in New England)! Those candles could be really welcoming to our many group members that come to be in fellowship and here from the Lord!

  11. 31

    Leanne says

    I love the whatever canvas and the fruit of the spirit canvas. Such glorious colours and a wonderful message to display in our home.

  12. 36

    Mandy S says

    I have several of their items already. A canvas and two plaques that hang in a pretty little grouping in the kitchen. I love the Houses canvas. It would be perfect above our front door as a reminder to serve the Lord as we’re going our the door. It’s in the deals section so I guess that must mean it’s about to be gone. I’d better hurry…

  13. 39

    Carol Darden says

    I love the ‘Whatever is…’ AND, of course, I’d have to get the Strong and Courageous for my grandsons….

  14. 47

    Erin says

    Wow! I love the Stripes series. I would love to put “Be strong and courageus” in the bedrooms of my boys…but I really like the “Whatever is” for my kitchen or living room. The colors are bright and I remind my children of that scripture often!

  15. 48

    Kellie says

    Wow! These are so simple, but beautiful. I’d have to go for the “Be Strong and Courageous”. I have three boys. Perfect for their room. Although the Corrie Ten Boom would be so nice for me :) I’ll have to keep these in mind for Christmas!!

  16. 52


    i love the stripes series! i also love the “children are a gift from the lord” cavases. i could put the blue in my boys’ room and the pink in my girls’ room!!

  17. 55

    Colleen Schinzing says

    Joshua 1:9 is my son’s favorite verse…I’m planning on hanging it in his new room once it’s completed!

  18. 60

    MaryAnn says

    I love the stripes series! I could just see them in the basement playroom. They would really brighten up an otherwise dark area as well as inspire the kids that visit our home for playdates with our kids.

  19. 61

    Amanda B. says

    I love Show Offs’ pieces. I especially like the Tree canvas and too many others to name for my girls.

  20. 63

    Brooke Looney says

    I would love the “stripes” piece for my son’s room! I’ve been looking for Scripture art work for a boys room & this is perfect!

  21. 65


    What awesome art!! I was thinking of what would look good in my home, but when I saw the Corrie ten Boom, I knew that would be perfect for my daughter’s dorm room. Corrie is one of her all time favorite Christian women and how inspiring to have her canvas for her to look at everyday!

  22. 66

    Tracey H. says

    I love each of them, but the whatever canvas is my favorite!! Thanks for the chance to get some scripture on my walls:0)

  23. 67

    Danielle G. says

    All the canvases are lovely. My husband and I recently moved into a new house, and I’m trying to add some color and uplifting pictures to our walls. These would be perfect! Also, there are some fabulous prints that would be perfect for a baby’s room, and I have a few people in my life that are expecting.

  24. 69

    Amy P says

    So many wonderful things it is difficult to choose. I love the colors of the tree canvas. Thanks for telling us about Show Off Arts.

  25. 70

    Jabber Jaws says

    I love their art!!! Two years ago I wanted the God is geat, God is good piece and didn’t buy it. I’ve regretted it ever since. I would love to have something from them in our new home.

  26. 74

    Kaite Brubaker says

    I love the Stripes Fruits of the Spirit. I would love to incorporate this piece to the kids playroom.

  27. 77

    Erin says

    I would love the ‘Be Strong’ print to hang in my son’s room… he is two years old and transitioning to a “big boy” room, as I am pregnant with our second child (another boy) who will arrive in December. This would be the perfect complement to his room and a great reminder to him!

  28. 80

    Christina says

    I love the stripes & the verse from Joshua has been popping up a lot lately. I have been very fearful & overwhelmed lately & this is a great new scripture that I am working on memorizing to help me. Thank you

  29. 82

    zCathy says

    On your recommendation, I purchased the “You are wonderfully made” canvas last year for my daughter. She loves it! The “strong” canvas would be great for my boys!
    Thanks for all the thoughtful recommendations you make! God uses you to bless so many families!

  30. 88

    Brooke says

    I love these. I have purchased several for my home as always brighten a room … in many ways. My new favorites are the stripes collections. Very cool!

  31. 90

    Heather E. says

    My favorite is still the Tree Canvas. I’m so glad it is the picture on my calender for the month of October! I would buy that one first and then something else amazing! Thank you!

  32. 94


    Inspired. Yes! I have a board dedicated to Show Off Art on Pinterest for just that reason! Do you not love their work!? Of their newest collection, I would love the Fruit of the Spirit Canvas. Honestly, though, who can choose? These canvases would look great in pairs.

  33. 97

    Dee says

    I love the Corrie! One of my dear friends turned me on to her book.. it has changed both of our lives. I would love to bless her with this as she has blessed me!

  34. 99

    Lisa says

    I would get the “For this child I have prayed” canvas. How true is that of our first daughter, after having 2 pregnancies end too soon with babies going to Heaven. Our daughter is named Hannah, because, just has Hannah prayed for a child, we so prayed for her!

  35. 102


    Wow- I love their stuff! It would be hard to choose, but maybe all 4 from the stripe series? We pray the fruit of the Spirit over our children every day, so of course that one, but I love the verse from Joshua as well… and if we have two then we might just need them all!

  36. 103

    Julie says

    They are all just lovely! I think the stripes with the Joshua verse and the tree with the same verse are my favorites.

  37. 105

    d says

    I love the cross (its hanging in our family room:-). I like so many things but I really like the Corrie ten Boom floral canvas-I think I may get it for Christmas (to me, from me;-)

  38. 108

    Amanda says

    Love the new one, Josh 1:9, we have adapted that as our family verse. Would love to hang that in our playroom! So cute, all of them really!

  39. 109


    Oooh, I’m a stripes girl! If I don’t win the giveaway, these cute little things give me ideas for my hallway and playroom. I love having Scripture at eye level in my home.

  40. 111


    Oh I love them all- so fun, and meaningful.
    Probably right now I’d say the Corrie Ten Boom would be my selection- tomorrow maybe Fruits of the Spirit.

  41. 112

    Kristy Lynn says

    Their artwork is so beautiful and inspiring!! One of my favorites is the tree canvas that has Joshua 1:9!

  42. 113

    Suzanne says

    I would LOVE the Stripes for my 7year old son’s room. Just redid his room and it would be the finishing touch!

  43. 117

    Erin Kell says

    I love the Stripes collection. We are painting our boys room and looking for something to hang on the wall.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. 122

    Darcie says

    I love the stripes print! My 3 boys share a room and I’d love for them to have this Scripture reminder!

  45. 124

    Kimberly says

    I SO love the Corrie Ten Boom one! I have also read a lot of her inspiring words, and many have stayed with me. The colors are fabulous! I’m in love. :)

  46. 129

    Jasmin says

    I’ve gotta say, I think the Tree Canvas is my favorite piece. It’s got that pretty nature touch, on top of a message we all need to hear every day. My God is greater, and through trusting in Him, there is no need for fear. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  47. 131

    Kylie says

    I really like all of the “Stripes” paintings and also the birds with “Out of his hand we receive one blessing after another.” Such a good reminder!!

  48. 132

    Christine says

    Beautiful!! I love the daisy canvas, tree canvas the flower canvas… Want to decorate with scripture more. Would love to win and then I’ll ask my families advice on which to choose. :)

  49. 133

    Peggie says

    I have never gone to the website to see all these Gems! I love them all and would be so hard to chose should I win. I am drawn to the Be Strong Plaque but so many others caught my eye. What great work ! Thank you.

  50. 135

    Wendi says

    Love the new Show Off Arts prints. Getting ready to redo my daughter’s room and have had a few of the other SOA prints on our wish list. The Corrie Ten Boom print may be a new wish list item when I show it to her.

  51. 138

    Kacey Foley says

    I want one of these so bad. They are all beautiful. I would definitely start by getting the striped canvas “Be Strong” for my little nephew. He is 4 years old and does not have a daddy. He’s starting to ask a lot of questions regarding his dad and I want to instill in him in every way possible that the Lord is his father and is with him wherever he goes. Love that kid so much and I want him to love the Lord with all his heart.

  52. 141

    Kara says

    I would love the Corrie Ten Boom one for my daughter – she is named after her! Thanks for a beautiful and inspiring giveaway opportunity!

  53. 143

    Amy P. says

    What cute stuff they have! I love the whatever canvas, but I’m sure I could spend the gift certificate a hundred different ways! Thanks for the giveaway!

  54. 146

    Judy says

    The canvas with the quote “For this child I have prayed” is one that means a lot because we’ve prayed for our 2nd baby and I’m pregnant and due in JUNE!!! A huge answer to prayer and one that’s encouraging 😉 Love the stripes and the flowers…very cool colors!

  55. 147

    Lorrie S says

    I absolutely adore the Tree Canvas. I love the verse and it’s exactly what I need right now. I’m having surgery on my foot tomorrow and I can’t put any weight on it for four weeks. It’s my driving foot, so no driving either. I would love to be able to look at that canvas every day while I’m recovering…….
