Coast Memoirs // Artifact Uprising Giveaway

Our vacation down the Oregon and California coastline was such an incredibly beautiful trip. We mapped out our week in little increments, driving only two to three hours each day; a few hours of driving each day worked perfectly for our little ones. We packed Graeme, Job, and our faithful doggie, Cal-girl, in the back seat, stuffed the back of Elsa (our Volvo wagon) to the brim, and headed out on an exciting new adventure each day, while slowly making our way down to San Francisco. 


A few weeks ago, as I tapped the final button on my Artifact Uprising order, I breathed an audible sigh of relief. Knowing that I would hold those memorable photographs in my hands, in book form, in just a few days, made me feel like I was on top of the world. (You think I'm kidding!) I knew I would love our book. 


What I wasn't prepared for was how much everyone in my family, down to our littlest members, would love the Artifact Uprising book. I loved watching Graeme and Job as they discovered page after page with their own vacation-laced faces on them. They were full of oohs and aahs. I decided to leave a page, here and there, blank for documenting some special memories from our trip. And I'm so glad I did.


I was first introduced to Artifact Uprising via Instagram. We've long followed each other's feed and I am always so inspired by their creativity, their kindness, their genuineness. (I love their tag line: Inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible.) It's because of those exact qualities that I'm able to offer today's giveaway for an Artifact Uprising soft cover book. You guys. Enter this giveaway. You will not regret it.



To enter the giveaway for an Artifact Uprising soft-cover book, simply complete one (or as many as you'd like!) of the entries below. Thank you Artifact Uprising for what you do and for this wonderful giveaway!

  1. I can TOTALLY relate to your excitement over a photo book. I honestly think my love language is photo books, so if I won, I would be ecstatic :) I would make a book for my hubby with lots of sappy pictures and memories of us together.

    Graeme and Job look adorable - they truly are so happy to see those pictures! :)

  2. OH wow! What a beautiful book. We just got back from really a once in a lifetime trip to Italy, and a book like this would be perfect to help us cherish the memories even more.

The Lord is so good. XO.

    I have seen so many grat posts about AU on IG...I would love to put in a book me and my kiddos journey to yosemite, sequoias, the beach, disneyland, legoland, temecula, and home. We are still on the trip....crossing my fingers...this trip is special because we are accomplishing it just us three. Making lasting memories while they are still small.

  22. I keep thinking I am going to make and then order some photo books - but never do. Israel or Spain would probably be my top pics to make.

    1. Katie,

      Your books would be on the top of my list to view! And, I am so sorry that we didn't keep up with you on your trip to China. I totally thought I had signed up to get the email and then I realized later (too much later!) that I needed to do something else to get the updates. I'm so sorry that we missed that opportunity! Glad to hear that you are safely home, though.
