I'm Taking the Plunge!!!

Well, I've been thinking and pondering and fretting (probably not a good thing - the latter, that is) about growing my little business (my husband calls it my hobby). First I started this blog but didn't really let people know about it (my first mistake). Then I opened an Etsy shop and made my first sale a couple of weeks ago (so excited!!!) But I feel like I should be doing more. I need to be contributing to our household more and I feel like I am talented enough to use my creative juice to help out, more than just with my normal 9-5 job.


So I've decided to take the plunge and do my first giveaway here! Since I really like photography, the LUCKY winner will receive a black & white 12x36 panoramic flower 3some poster print, that I've created in Photoshop. It is printed on special poster paper (a $35 value).

I wanted to use Mr. Linky but couldn't get my computer to cooperate so I'll just do it the old-fashioned way. Please browse my etsy shop (http://www.dragonflydesigns77.etsy.com/) and come back here and make a comment about your favorite item. I'll then use the random number generator to pick the lucky winner!

Just leave a comment on this post to enter.

This is a comment from my MIL. She doesn't have an account and can't sign up for one at work so I'm putting in her comment:

"I love all your work of course, but I think I like the Angelic Angel and the 3some black and white of the flowers most. I really like the train too! Hope you have some Christmas cards and things out soon!"
