Blogging in 2010…

One of my New Year’s goals is to blog more.  I want to share more about the crafting my mother is doing, and to share the projects I’m working on too.

I want to link up to fabulous artists and crafters at etsy.com and elsewhere.  I want a dialogue to happen around here – links to DIY projects, scrapbooking, crocheting, knitting, painting… whatever we feel like doing THIS week.

One of my MOST favorite things about having a shop at etsy.com is the sense of community.  There are so many wonderful people doing “their thing” at etsy – selling, buying, crafting… I’d love to talk about that more here on the ole’ blog.

What are YOUR goals for 2010?  Do you blog?  If so, post your link in the comments!

Finally… the winners!

Ok, so I had a brain freeze (like two weeks long), and forgot to post winners to the recent giveaways!  OOPS!

So… the winner of the pot holder and towel is KIM.

And the winner of the free photo card design is KORI.

You both have email

Stay tuned for more fun craft chat soon!

Another Giveaway…

As I mentioned earlier today in another post, this week is Fall Giveaway Carnival time over at Heavenly Homemakers.

How about ANOTHER giveaway??

This giveaway is for a A CUSTOM PHOTOCARD OR ANNOUNCEMENT:

BWDamaskwithRedweb

How does a FREE photocard design sound?   Besides blogging about crafts (and digital scrapbooking), I also run a digital scrapbook/graphic design business. I offer a variety of products, like birth announcements, save the date cards, graduation announcements, wall art, and more.

You can see sample cards up close over at my etsy shop.

Etsy
Buy Handmade
delightdesign

And, this first giveaway is for a CUSTOM design. The cards can be 4×6, 5×7, or 4×8 size (or any size you request, actually!)

Need your Christmas cards done this year?  No problem! Need a birth announcement?  No problem.  Need a party invitation?  NO problem!  I’ll create what YOU want and need!

This is for the digital design – so you’ll need a way to print them once I email you the design in JPG format, but there are so many options nowadays for printing – Walmart, Walgreens, Snapfish.com, Winkflash.com… and it’s so affordable to print your own!

So, click over to my shop for a minute, check out the designs, and then just leave a comment about your favorite photocard sample , and you’ll be entered to win!

I’ll pick ONE random winner through at the end of this week!  Please remember to leave your email address.  If you win, I’ll need to have a way to contact you!

A SALE…

So, yesterday was my birthday.. 37 years young!  I was actually out of town for half the day, as I had flown to California for a wedding shower on Saturday.  It was a very interesting way to spend my birthday… half in California, half on an airplane, half at home. (Yes, I know that’s too many halves, but I’m a graphic designer, not a mathmetician).

Anyway… I’m CELEBRATING my birthday all month long with a great big sale in my DelightDesign shop.

Because it’s my 37th birthday, I’m offering my CUSTOM photo card design services for 37% OFF.

Normally $15… Now $9.45!

Oct37offsale2b

The sale lasts for the entire month, but I recommend getting your order in soon!

And… if you are interested in taking advantage of the Birthday Sale, but aren’t QUITE ready to have your photo card made – THAT’S OK! Just make your purchase now, and then let me know when you are ready to have the card designed.

Any questions, just let me know!!
