Custom Postcards {Giveaway}

Today I bring you a chance at a giveaway for 100 5×7 postcards from PrintRunner!

I’m planning to create custom postcards for the invites to my daughters baptism. Certainly Print Runner’s online postcard printing would be great for a graduation party,  birthday or even as thank you notes! Not to mention, their online postcard printing not only grants you the option of choosing from multiple postcard sizes, but also gets your orders delivered directly to your clients through our mailing services. Just provide them with your mailing list and  they’ll drop the postcards right at your customers’ doorsteps.

As an added bonus for this giveaway,  I will provide the winner with free custom design services (although Print Runner makes the design of your product very easy)!

To participate in this giveaway, do one or all of the following, and comment FOR EACH one you do!  The more times you comment below the more chances to win 🙂
1. Comment below with how you will use the Print Runner print online services.

Project 2012- LOVE story package giveaway!

Much of my life is a juggling act, and so new year’s resolutions  just aren’t something I do.  Not that I don’t have goals, ideas, or one massive and ever-growing list of things I want “to-do,” just seems as I’ll be on track to cross off about 20 things off the list, and then BAM-something like a baby decides to show her beautiful face.  Or as the case was in 2011, it was time for the long-procrastnated-and-very-much-needed-shoulder-surgery.  Turns out a complete overhaul on your dominant shoulder sets you back a few months.  The mad rush of projects that got done the week before surgery was pretty much amazing, but then floundering through 4 months of therapy and recognizing what would never be again changed my outlook on a few things.

Looking ahead I have a few ideals that I’m kicking into action this month, with hopes to get as much done before April as possible.  I have decided that 2012 is going to be my year of “Intentional Living.”  What does that mean?  For me, it means I’m going to be much more deliberate in choosing projects that fit into our life so I can balance the life of a working mother.  It means I need to decide what my employment options really are. Blogging is my sanity, not my job.  I inspire to create and share and if I make a few dollars (literally $3) it adds a smile to my face, because truly this blog is my inspiration to Foster a Creative Life, without creative projects to “play” with, I feel drab and boring.  Even the husband appreciates my inspiration to switch things up and try some pretty creative projects.  I’m just fortunate that I have the vision and he has many handy skills to help make my ideas a reality!  My REAL job is one big question…the time, the politics, the workload never seem to lighten the stress load on a working mother.  Adding another child in April won’t make life easier, and it’s not feasible for our household to operate on one income (yet).  Currently I’m exploring what options and opportunities are available- and I’ll just leave it at that for now.

Which brings me to MY Business.  In 2011, I started Little-d-Tales LLC {Photography and Design} and have fallen in love with the work I do….and I totally didn’t mean for that to come across as conceited and arrogant, so forgive me if that’s how you read it.  I’ve decided to launch a few major projects as part of my Intentional Living aspirations for 2012.  The first is a LOVE Story package.  The vision of my business is to help capture the moments that create the stories of your life.  That means the entire story from shoot to publication, all custom design around your comforts, desires and stories.  Just yesterday I announced that I am GIVING away a Love Story Package to a deserving couple/family ($600 value).  To see all the details and application, click on the button below.

LoveStory button

If you would please share with others I would greatly appreciate it.   I truly want to offer something meaningful to a family/couple who would like their story documented.  While I’m located in Wisconsin (yes one of 7 creative bloggers in the Midwest) I would be willing to negotiate travel for the right applicant!

Stay tuned…lots of intentional living projects to Foster a Creative life in the works 🙂

UPrinting Canvas Giveaway!

Please Note: This giveaway is now closed

I am SUPER excited to have an awesome giveaway for one lucky reader!  UPrinting is offering a 16 x 20 rolled canvas giveaway to one of my readers. I am super excited about this for many reasons…

1.  Canvas prints are all the rage. They add some fun style and texture to your wall decor.  It’s a great option for a family favorite photograph to keep a vacation, portrait or inspirational photograph at the forefront of your home.

2. I have Framing tutorial up my sleeve.  Ever notice the price difference in rolled canvases versus framed canvases… it’s huge.  So what a great way to get a high quality art piece and I’ll show you how to frame it 🙂

3.  Who doesn’t love free stuff that doubles as art?!

Here’s the details:

And we are off {Giveaway}

I decided it’s time to kick things up a notch. With all the creative inspiration over the past few months I’ve expanded my design work to hard materials including such things as fabric, wood, and DUCT TAPE?! I have been a blogger since 2006 in my own little world over at Enjoying Life (you might know me as the sunshinequeen), and in 2011 I kicked off my Photography business with the launching of Little-d-Tales LLC which today became a new parent to my newest bundle of love and creative inspiration.  For months the crafty, decorating and thrifty side of me has been hoovering around, soaking up ideas and slowly seeping into my other strands of life.  Losing my focus of my personal blog, and distracting from the photography side of things I felt these juices needed a home…which brings me to “Fostering a Creative Life.”

Hopefully you’ll join me in this new venture as I feature a wide variety of decorating ideas, tips and tutorials, host parties, and occasionally thank my readers by offering gifts.  Starting today I’d like to kick off this blog with my first giveaway: The Ultimate Beach Bag!

This is the product of one of my brainchild (aka- I haven’t seen one before, I just thought it up).  Made with window screen and duct tape, this beach bag is durable and trendy all in one. The bottom is reinforced and the see through sides allow you to leave the sand at the beach. You’d be amazed how much you can fit in here!

How do you win this? Do any/or all of the items list below and come back to comment for each one you do.  Each comment earns you an entry.

1.  Post a comment Below
2. “Like” Little-d-Tales on Facebook-( by clicking on the follow me in the right sidebar) and come back and comment
