::closed!:: Blogiversary Giveaway: Retro Hawaii Map from Everything is Jake!

Ready for round two of the blogiversary giveaways? All week long, I'm sending a little Hawaii your way (you know, since I can't bring my awesome readers to Hawaii!) 

I know you've seen me blog about my super talented buddy, Rachel, who took our homecoming pictures last year and did our photo shoot for us in December. Well, Rachel's hubby, Nick, is equally as talented! Nick is an amazing artist-- using paints, graphic design and even has spent the past year making over an old VW van! 

And now he's opened an Etsy shop featuring some of his beautiful work! He's just getting started so there are only a few things in there now, but this shop is going to be a great success!

Check out his Etsy shop here and his blog here! 



Today, one lucky winner will literally have Hawaii sent to her door. Up for grabs is this suh-weet retro Hawaii map in burnt orange and pale blue. The map measures 27x19 and is printed on heavy matte coated stock. I have one of my own and it is beautiful! 


To enter, you must be a follower of AisletoAloha using the Google Friend Connect feature (Click the "follow" button on the right side bar.) Leave a comment on this post telling me how your hubby, significant other, brother, dad, gets creative. Does he work on cars? Love to draw? Throw together interesting outfits? I love seeing creative guys, don't you? 

Chris loves cooking up yummy meals in the kitchen. :)

**Additional entries**

2. If you tweet about the giveaway, leave a second entry. Make sure to mention me (@aisletoaloha) so I can keep track of the tweets! 

3. If you are a fan of Everything is Jake on Facebook, leave a third entry.

So, you have the potential to enter three times. 

**Please make sure I can find your email somewhere (on your blog, etc) or your entry is invalid! ****Open to all readers, US and international-- I love you all!**

The giveaway will be open until 10pm (Hawaii time) next Sunday, April 3rd. I'll choose the winner using random.org and announce it on Monday, April 4th. Good luck!

  9. How cool is Everything Is Jake?! Thanks for pointing out this creative guy to us!

    My Dad puts tons of time into designing intricate heating and air conditioning controls and set ups for work using a Computer Aided Design system. The blue prints he can draw up for you in just a few minutes will blow your mind! Of course, for fun on the side he spends time customizing his Harley. :)

  24. My husband is creative in lots of ways! He's a handyman, and does the most beautiful work! He also is a great cook, and even has been known to paint a little!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Since my husband isn't that creative, I will tell you about my Grandpa. He is 95 years old and is an awesome gardener. He just recently moved in with my family and has turned part of their yard into a vegetable garden. He can be found working at his potting table most days out in the warm FL sunshine.

  26. I am also a "fan" of Everything is Jake on Facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I *NEED* this map!!!! I have a feeling I'll be making purchases from him in the very near future.


    Well, I'm single, so the only men in my life are my dad and brother, and my brother loves to write music!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My hubby gets creative by playing video games that require strategy or "world building" as I call it. Basically, if he has to do any work to make the game playable, then I think he's being creative "enough".
    To be honest, he doesn't use his hands for much other than video gaming, but he does give me a lot of ideas to make things. He'll come up with something I could crochet or paint, and from there, I take the idea and make it a reality.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My hubby is an engineer so he is creative in creating/building things :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Another beautiful give-away! My fiance, David, usually gets creative by writing. I still have a few poems he wrote in my little box of "our" stuff.

  32. I'm a follower! My dad likes to work in the yard... whether it's planting something for mom, or moving rocks around (yes, he has a rock garden thing lol), he just loves to be outside working around the yard!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My husband isn't quite the creative type. But, he is a whiz in the kitchen.

    p.s. What a great giveaway! This would go great in our house because I can point on the map to show all of our visitors where they are "in Hawaii". :)

  34. I'm a follower and my husband is a photographer and just getting ready to open an etsy store as well!

  36. My hubby creates gorgeous custom built-in furniture. When I give people "first time" tours of our home, I am the bragging wife, "David built this... David made this..."

    ReplyDelete
  37. My hubby works on an old motorcycle, 1965 honda. He also does a lot of woodwork and builds things, like the shed in our back yard.

    ReplyDelete
  38. my hubs had a double concentration in college for both photography and visual arts. there's not a photo or piece of artwork in our home that one of us hasn't created. i love decorating with our own art!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am a follower of your blog and I love this map!! My hubby gets creative by "nerding it up" and writing web code all day long. He created a website for us before we got married and we post videos and such for our family to see what we are up to. =)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok, now for my real entry :) Bill relaxes in a few different ways... brewing Beer (which is actually an itneresting and creative process), cooking for me and with me, and always thinking of little ways to bless me (I constantly get cards for no reason) :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I follow your blog!

    And my man loves to work in the yard!!

    Ooh, and I know just who I would give that map to!

  45. My hubster has been getting creative lately by learning to play a secret instrument. I think I am the only person who knows what it is, so I can't divulge, but he has fond family memories around this instrument and I can tell how much he wants to pour out his soul through it. He loves to steal away to the porch and decompress from a long day at work while playing it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. My husband used to draw pretty often, but he doesn't draw much these days. Instead, he actually helps me decorate the house, mainly our daughter's room. He'd probably hate me for telling anybody that!

  51. My husband is an engineer by trade... he has been getting very creative lately as we are building a house the he has designed for us. He is also working on designing a cabin in rustic Alaska, where we live. It is pretty amazing to watch his hard work become reality!

    This map of Hawaii (our favorite place) would look wonderful on the soon to be orange accent wall in our new house! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. My husband is very talented, and likes to figure out how to make things. Right now he is building himself a wooden and fiberglass johnboat. He really wanted a boat so he decided to build himself one! He was also trying to build a camp heater!

  55. Oy, seriously. I said it before but WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY IDEAS?!!! Your brain must be filled with wonderfulness all over the place!

    Creative guys are hard to resist. My guy races motocross, which doesn't seem much too creative to me. He gets creative by not crashing. :) He has a smooth way of hinting at how he thinks we should spend our time together. I'm trying to get him to paint some art for our place but I think I'm failing. ;)

  58. My hubby is very into architecture and design. He has so many ideas for our future final home (he's Army - who knows when that will be?), but he built a vegetable garden for me, designed and built a patio in our backyard, all sorts of home improvement projects!

    My little brother get creative with his art/drawing -- he's always coming up with the cutest little bug-villages and army men! Huge scenes that take several minutes to look at everything!

    My hubby isn't super creative, except when I ask him to take a picture of me when we're somewhere special...then he's all about getting great composition and goes all artsy on me. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I tweeted about it! @blessedbride08

  61. Oh boy...creative would be the last word I would use to describe my fiance. I would say he is resourceful, finding uses for things, thinking outside the box.

    Happy Blog Anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  62. My boyfriend is very creative when it comes with surprising me. He planned an entire trip without me knowing and it was wonderful. Surprised me with a hot air balloon ride another time. He's great at treating me!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Does brewing beer count? I think it's definitely getting my hubby's creative juices flowing! It's equal parts art & science - and we get to drink the results! Cheers!

  64. I like Everything is Jake on Facebook, as Kate Baldwin.

    I love this map. It would look fabulous in our Hawaiian-themed nursery. ;)

  65. My hubby gets creative just thinking up awesome business ideas! I swear the man has "invented" at least 50 business (that he never actually pursued) but he has an amazing business mind!

  69. my love is a very linear thinker and doesn't express his creativity in any typical ways--however, he is totally creative when it comes to planning a day of fun events; he often plays it by ear leaving tons of room for creative liberty and lots o fun!

    my 11 year old lil bro on the other hand expresses his creativity through inventions--he has come up with so many cool games, collectable cards, etc. it's so cool to see his mind at work!
