For my first giveaway EVER I am teaming up with a close friend of Sluiter Nation: Mat Nyenhuis of M9design (currently based near Denver, CO). Sluiter Nation has been great friends with Mat since our high school days. Cort and Mat were inseparable! He was the best man in our wedding, and one of our best friends for life. He and I went to college together where he got his degree in Graphic Design.
Recently I asked him if he would design a button for my blog...he rocked TWO out for me (you know, so I can switch them up whenever I feel like it):
He also created some banners for my blog, but stupid blogger won't let me put them in (at least not that I have figured out anyway).
He has done graphic design pieces for beer bottles, event t-shirts, menus, and more. Check out his stuff on his site.
He also does freelance painting and Sluiter Nation has purchased MANY of his pieces over the years.
He did a piece for us shortly after Cort and I traveled to Seattle. We fell in LOVE with the city and now have a reminder of it, thanks to Mat, in our dinning room.

And we gave my brother Mike and his new bride Ashley a painting of Chicago, but it isn't here yet, sorry!
