My First Giveaway!


Everyone loves free stuff, especially when the economy is in the crapper and we are all dealing with shrinking budgets. The first things we have to do without are obvious novelty items, but we also have to get creative with gift giving and celebrating on the cheap. While I pride myself on being able to make fabulous parties and presents out of almost nothing, a little help doesn't hurt. That's why I am so excited to get to host my first giveaway, just in time for Father's Day!

UPrinting.com just contacted me with the chance to offer one of their 18″x24″ poster prints for giveaway to one lucky reader, and so here we are! While I haven’t used UPrinting.com’s services for myself yet, a quick scan of their site showed me I likely will be soon. Their greetings cards are so tempting! I’ll be able to order my own 18″x24″ print soon, and I’m so excited! I'll be using mine for a long overdo hanging of our wedding photo! If you visit the UPrinting.com site, you’ll see that they do more than just poster printing and canvas printing: everything from business cards, door hangers, letterhead, and more. Just a note of warning: if you are a paper junkie like me, you may start drooling.

If you’d like to win this 18″x24″ poster print from UPrinting.com, all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me how you’d use a 18″x24″ print. A portrait of you and your dad? Your children and your hubby? Maybe a shot taken at favorite vacation spot or sports venue? For an extra entry, blog about this giveaway (and leave an extra comment with your blog link!), linking back to this post and www.uprinting.com (you must have both links to be valid). Don't forget to leave me your email address so that I can contact you in case you win!

This giveaway will end at midnight (EST) Friday, June 5. The winner will be drawn at random, will be posted here at go ahead and snicker, and will be notified by email.

PLEASE NOTE: per UPrinting’s rules, the 18″x24″ print is only open to residents in the U.S. and Canada!

Good luck to everyone!
p.s. Check out many more giveaways, including the 1st Birthday Carnival over at The Giveaway! Watch out though, stalking the site can be addicting!

I have a picture of my daughter with her raingear - so adorable! - she has rain boots, a rain coat and an umbrella. It was taken at a portrait place so the quality is good enough to enlarge.

Thanks for having a giveaway! Congrats on a great one for your first!

I hope this will be the first of many giveaways! I'm watching for a Keurig, okay?

I would get a print of my daycare kiddos. That would be fun getting 15 wild and crazy kids to sit still for a picture. The ages are from 1 1/2 to 10, mostly 3 and 4 years old.

Rebecca said...

Hello! I would love to win!
I was looking through my photos I have saved on my PC. I ran across an awesome photo of my husband and me kissing on our honeymoon. The funny part is I don’t even remember taking this photo. I thought it would be nice to hand up in the bedroom.

I might be a lil late to enter?? But...I would use the print for a beautiful photo of me and my cat, "Crizzy." She's been with me for 17 years. I would cherish the print forever!
Thank you!
