I'm sad to announce that I will be closing this blog down at the end of the year. My last giveaway will run the week of December 20th. Thanks to all the readers and sponsors that have been so supportive!
This week's giveaway comes to us from Jenna over at
(Note, Jenna's shop is on vacation mode at this time, but will be back up after the holidays. Hope she enjoys the family time and I wish her and her family a Merry Christmas!)
Jenna has a great etsy shop with adorable home decor. Here is Jenna to tell you a little more about herself and her shop...
"I am a mom of 2. I am a flight instructor. I started my vinyl business to keep be busy. We started this 3 years ago and I have been loving it! I love it when people order something that I had previously created but also love to create things for people when they have their own visions. I love to work with wood and all it's imperfections. I also have a new love for working with glass and frames. Custom orders are what keep me going, the possibilities are endless!"
This week's giveaway comes to us from Vicki over at
Vicki has a great etsy shop with custom holiday cards, birth announcements, and invitations. She is also a successful photographer who also teaches courses in photography! Here is a little more about Vicki and her businesses....
Vicki has been a professional photographer since 2003. Before becoming a pro, she and her husband owned their own graphic design company. She has created a name for herself within the industry as the photographer that helps the newcomers.
She has been designing items for her clients for several years now, however, only recently decided to offer her work to the masses. She opened her Etsy shop in November of this year and is constantly adding new designs.
Business Basics started in August of 2007 as the Foundations Program to help anyone learn the basics of photography. It quickly became a popular program with hundreds of students across the globe. Many of the students wanted more information about starting and marketing a photography business, which was not offered in the original Foundations program. Therefore, Business Basics, or BBP, was formed. BBP is available to anyone, not just someone wishing to become a professional photographer. Many of the students are people that simply wish to take better photos of their loved ones. -

This week's giveaway comes to us from Carrie over at
Carrie has a great little shop with original, uplifting art prints! Here Carrie to tell you a little more about her and her shop...
"I am first and foremost a mother of three, and a happy wife. My "side" job is that of freelance illustrator, designer, professor and author. Typically I freelance for national and international companies. I love being an illustrator, not every knowing what my next assignment will be. Some of my clients have been: Target, HGTV, New York Magazine, The Baltimore Sun, American Greetings and more. From illustrating children's books, greeting cards, comic books, animated commercials, character development, stationary, editorial work and more, there is great variety in what I do.
I started UUPP (Unique Uplifting Positive Prints) for a very special reason however. We all go through times of peace and times of difficulty. At some point we each have to face challenging periods in our lives. Over the last few years during some really difficult times I relied on my faith, uplifting messages and positive people to see me through. I still am relying on those things. Being grateful on a daily basis is vital for me. Sometimes too when we are tending to the needs of others, we forget about our needs. For awhile I forgot about feeding my creative self.
This is why I created the work in UUPP. I am absolutely loving creating the pieces in UUPP. It is full of inspiring messages of hope, love, laughter, faith, gratitude and peace. All the categories and the new work to come are the great loves in my life. From cooking (I love love Julia Child) to the escape my garden gives me, to watching great movies and reading great books (I admit I am a Jane Austin addict), to the importance of family, to always being a good friend to others and remaining strong in my faith no matter what. I love using textures from vintage papers and fabric, combining that with hand drawn typography and illustrations. Every time I sit down to create a new piece, I am in absolute bliss. I hope you enjoy."
Carrie has so generously offered to give an 8 x 10 of the winner's choice to the winner of this giveaway! She's also offering 25% off of all orders placed through Dec 31, 2010 using coupon code DEC2010!
Entering to win is easy! Head over to Carrie's shop and have a look around. Come back and tell me what your favorite print is. Fill out the google form and hit submit!
Who doesn't love a giveaway!? I think I might actually like being behind the giveaway even more than being the big winner! Since doing frequent giveaways on my personal blog isn't too realistic, I decided to give this a try!
