Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to Rachael, who said:
"Did you ever color a white sheet of paper with all different colors, then color the whole thing black? You can then use a toothpick to draw designs and the pretty colors show through the black. I LOVED doing this when I was little."

October November Giveaway

Thanks to all of you who came to visit me at the Trinity High School Choir Craft Fair! I had a great time (despite being ill and staying up rather late the night before) and met some really fun people. Once again, the letter prints were a big hit. With my updated catalog (twice as many letters!) everyone was able to find something for a unique Christmas, Wedding or Baby gift, or just something for their home. Of course, we sold plenty of the other items, so check them out in my store too.

The giveaway for this month is for a free Crayon Fold Up!
The crayon fold up is much like the crayon roll, but holds 12 crayons and features an extra flap for added crayon security.

You too can be the proud owner of a Crayon Fold Up much like this one, just complete any of the steps listed below and leave a comment for EACH completed step. Be sure to include a way to contact you in at least one of your comments. There are SIX ways for you to enter the giveaway! (by the way, the crayons are not included, it's still really warm here and I don't want them to melt!)

1. Tell me a coloring story from when you were a kid. Or your favorite crayon color.
2. Favorite my store or an item in it

PhotoVision Promotion

For those of you who don't know me, I am a part time photographer. I love taking pictures! (go down to the bold print to cut to the chase) Looking for the giveaway? Scroll down to the previous post.

Last year I signed up for a sort of continuing education program called PhotoVision. What is PhotoVision? Here is how they describe themselves:

PhotoVision consists of 6 2-hour video DVDs a year, 1 mailed every other month, featuring leading photographers bringing you the latest and greatest things happening in the photographic industry. You'll see photographic styles and techniques, digital workflow, lighting and posing, Photoshop tips and tricks, hear innovative marketing and sales strategies, output alternatives, new hardware and software reviews and much, much more.

The information is helpful for beginning photographers and old pros, as the breadth of information on the DVDs is so large. I LOVE mine. When else am I going to be able to shadow a top photographer at a shoot and see how they work, will my daughter takes her nap in the next room? The cheapest continuing education photography class at my local college is $139.  And that covers only one topic and is taught by, let's face it, not one of the country's best photographers.

Why am I telling you all about this? Because they are running a promotion right now where you can sign up for the program for $110 OFF normal price for a final price of $39.  I know my readers love a good deal.  When you sign up through my link , I get entered into a contest for a free iPad, so no, I'm not just sharing out of the goodness of my heart!
