SS Print Shop ~ Stop & Smell The Peonies + Giveaway!

Hello Wednesday! How is your week so far? Mine has been hectic as I struggle between my demanding day job (project implementation fun), a design project for my friends from University who live in a prestigous neighbourhood (did I pick the wrong job?), and map out another round of house hunting in Waterloo this weekend.  On top of all that, I am feeling not so "fit" lately (thanks jeans for the honest truth).  To rectify the situation, I am now doing bootcamp Monday and Wednesday, light weight training + cyling on Tuesday and Thursday, and more working out with Chris on the weekend.  Can't you tell I am desperate to kick this asian aging butt?  

So, obviously lots are happening and I sadly only have 24 hours a day.  Just as I thought my life is getting too crazy, the talented Ms. Stephanie Sterjovski has teamed up with Anna of Annewithlove Photography for an absolutely gorgeous and inspiring collaboration: Stop & Smell The Peonies.

Just like Krystin in this promo clip, we often get pulled into many different directions in life and just as we thought we are about to snap, there is always something or someone that reminds us of what is important in life.

This limited edition of #stopandsmellthepeonies is truly versatile and provides the peony-obsessed (a.k.a me & perhaps you ...) an instant satisfaction.  Decadently framed in gold, artful displayed as inspiration, or gallery style elegance, these are just a few ways to showcase this beautiful stunner.

Congrats ladies for a super successful collaboration! I look forward to many inspiring and breathtaking work to come from you both.

Stephanie told me the prints are going fast and if you also want to take a moment of your over-scheduled days to appreciate and admire the beauty of nature (and the amazing talents of course), you better pick up a copy here fast!

To celebrate DesignMaze's birthday month + to share my love of peonies with you all, I am offering one of you this special limited edition #stopandsmellthepeonies print! That's right, this soon to be sold out print is yours to win!  All you need to do is to tell me how you would decorate your place with this beautiful print.  This giveaway is open to Canadian residents until 11:59 pm Thursday August 1st.    

Happy Hump Day!


  1. Happy birthday Tim and Design Maze! I know how much you love peonies and you pick just the right prize to give away. The print is so feminine and glam! I'd add it to my home office gallery wall which collects arts from our travel. It'd also be perfect for my dressing room.

  2. Ooh Happy birthday month Tim! Hope you get spoiled....this print would be the perfect pop of pink for my office!

  3. Tim! Thank you so much for the beautiful feature! So happy you love the print & fabulous giveaway!

    Lots of love

  4. Happy Birthday Month Tim :) I must remember to celebrate for a whole month when March comes around ;)
    I'd love the print for my bathroom, or my bedroom - somewhere I'd see it every morning, and remind me to enjoy the day instead of simply rushing around to get everything done.

  5. ooo.. Happy Birthday month Design Maze. LOVE this print and the quote from Stephanie... It would be the perfect pop of colour and femininity it would bring to my living room because then I could admire the peonies everyday as well as the special quote it tells us.

  6. Happy Birthday Month! This print is gorgeous! I would brighten up my living area with this calming, peaceful print, and it would look gorgeous on a cream wall.
