~ GIVE-AWAY and a New Site! ~

{photo above: one of my Note Card's available on Society 6}


Hello friends! I'm having a give-away! I haven't had one in awhile and I can't think of a better way to say THANK YOU for always being so wonderful to me!

I've also opened a little shop on Society 6 that I want to share with you! Its a fabulous website where you can purchase my photographs in many different forms: Note cards, art prints, framed prints, iphone covers etc. It's such a beautiful site and they have so many talented photographers and artists there! I am by no means a "photographer" in the formal sense. But photographing my miniatures is a real passion of mine and styling them for photographs is half the fun too! It's like playing :) So after receiving many emails with people asking if they can buy my photos in some form, I researched and found this wonderful site! So as part of my give-away and to have people come visit and see my new site, I'm making this a 2 item give-away!

What am I giving away? 1. A copy of my new book " Cottage Style in Miniature" in hardcover with a dust jacket. 2. A photo print from my new shop "Miniature Love", and you get to pick the photo of your choice!

The rules are simple as always, just leave a comment for 1 chance and blog about the give-away or add it to your side bar for 2 chances!

Just make sure to come back and tell me you did so your second comment counts as a second chance! And if you want to enter and don't have a blog, please leave your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you win!

*******

Above and below are a few peeks at my new site :) I hope you love the shop!

I will add new photos often and also take requests via my email here to add any photo of your choice that you'd like to add into the shop that might not be currently there!


Here's a mini picnic basket photo turned into note cards and stationary :)




Some framed prints....{I put them together on a wallpaper background to show how you can group them on a kitchen wall if you'd like}.


Cell phone covers etc!





Another picture of one of my prints.... {they can be ordered with pretty white frames, or black frames and 2 different styles also!}


and last but not least , a picture of my book you will win! :)


Thank you so much for stopping in and also for your friendship always!!

Here's the link to my new shop: http://society6.com/MiniatureLove {I'll be adding a permanent link on my side bar some time today}...Stop in when you get a minute and let me know what you think! Thank you!

The give-away ends on May 12th and I'll announce the winner here the following day! Mothers Day :)

Now it's back to mini making for me! It's been a busy few months of getting the ideas that were dancing in my head finally to fruition, but I have loved every moment and been so grateful to all of you along the way! My Book, My Etsy shop and this little photography site have all been little dreams of mine and I'm so happy with them! I hope you are too!

Hugs and love,

Greetings! I've posted twice, but don't see either post. I've been using the library computer, so that may be the reason the system doesn't "recognize" me. I received my copy of your outstanding book. It is my little den off the dining room and will be shared with one and all who happen to come to dine with me. I, of course, took notes as I read, so that I could apply your many helpful suggestions into my own life and miniatures. I'll write more later as this is not the venue. Warmest hugs and do add me to your growing list of Give-Away hopefuls. Good lucky everyone!!! xx
