New Sophistiqa Wall Art & a giveaway!

I am SO excited and honored to have teamed up with Sophistiqa from Etsy for a great gift away specifically for Home by Ally readers! Y'all. I have been SO, SO impressed with this husband and wife team! I stumbled upon their shop little while ago...Joanna and I have put our heads together for a custom sign that spoke to me and my outlook on life. I immediately thought of this Mother Theresa quote. I've read this quote on bad days and good, for comfort when I needed it most and what better way to remember it than to have it hanging in our home!

First and foremost, go take a look at their shop HERE! Something that really speaks volumes to me is the dedication and time this husband and wife take in their craft. They were so patient with me as I sent multiple ideas over their way and have been so helpful with choices and putting our heads together to find a sign that fit my home and heart best. A few personal things, Joanna & Jared have 7 children! Go mama (and daddy!)! Their love for their large family greatly shows through their work, personalities and collaborating on this sign. 

Jared & Joanna share a passion for Sophistiqa, where they love creating personalized home decor for their customers. The name Sophistiqa is derived from the word "sophisticated" and their love for travel and culture! They also own their own photography business based out of Springfield, MO and also have a second studio in San Antonio, TX! It is called J. Design Studios, which they have owned & ran since 2007! Talk about having some talent, right? Check out their photography website if you're local to those areas but also please know that they are available for destination wedding photography by clicking HERE! So impressed with these two.

I asked what their favorite sign in their shop right now was & a quick response from them was the GIANT American Flag sign they have in their production room. Hanging at 48 inches by 72 inches, which hangs vertically in a very cool, vintage finish! They have told me they hope to create signs which will put smiles on their customers faces & continue to create signs that competitors can't replicate. This, is most definitely what makes them stand out to me. So, today, I am honored and SO excited to be hosting a giveaway of a sign JUST like mine for HBA readers! 


I'm so impressed with the quality of this sign. I choose my own quote in a burnt umber frame color with charcoal lettering and a white background. They are about 2ft wide by 4ft tall, so perfect size for a LARGE impact in your home! And the great thing is, they are of course available for custom orders so if you have a certain size, quote or style you want, they would love to hear about it!


I choose to hang this sign in our sunroom. I had Mr. HBA hold it up for me a few different places but with this quote and how much it speaks to my heart, I wanted to see it everyday. Everyday, I wake up and let my dogs in the backyard which is right through the sunroom. I stand and sip a glass of orange juice or milk...and just take in the morning. What a beautiful thing to see each morning, right?

  2. So many gorgeous signs! I'm torn between the American Flag that's speaking to my patriotic side and the This is the Beginning of A New Day sign that touches my sentimental heart. My high school economics teacher had us quote that at the beginning of every class to inspire us to do good each day. I would hang either one of these beauties in my living room so I could see it all the time!
