Upcoming Birthday Giveaway!

Has everyone seen my birthday button on the side bar? Tawni made it for me :D

The giveaway will start Monday and end Sunday Nov 14th! I have a few authors that have sent me some books to giveaway along with swag and other goodies. Some include: Personal Demon by Kelly Armstrong, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Minder, and Firelight.

 In order to be able to send these books to their winners. I need help with shipping. So I thought I would make a proposition. For every dollar you donate you will receive +2 extra entries!!

I have a lot more books and things that could be given away also but I just need help with the shipping. 

So what do you say? Would you like to help me?

Happy Halloween!

Etsy Review: ModernArtStamps

Shop Bio
“We are not just a "seller of stamps". We are professional graphic designers and you can be sure that all the stamps you purchase from us are UNIQUE. You will find here fresh, modern and creative designs all the time and because we do not copy but CREATE from our heart, you can expect a stamp (or stamps?) that you will totally love, always.

We design, draw and love our work. See by yourself.

Need something special or customized?

What people are saying about us:

What people do with our stamps:”

I found this amazing shop the other day while browsing around Etsy. They have the most gorgeous stamps that I have ever seen. They are extremely great quality and are easy to clean. Here is a few item examples as well as their description. Also included is the stamp I received:
[The image I received was the flower at the end.]
You can receive business card stamps.
The stamps can be mounted on glass where you can see where you are stamping it, self inked or on a wooden stamp. In my case I chose the wood stamp. 

I will say that I believe by purchasing a stamp from this Etsy shop that it will save you time and money, by not having to write or purchase paper labels. Also by using a stamp you will not have to worry about your address label coming off or your handwriting be illegible for the post carrier. Another thing is these stamps can be unique and they are great conversation starters at the post office :D.

I was very pleased with the stamp I received. Not only did I receive it in excellent condition, but I love using it over and over and showing to anyone who will listen. In order to clean the stamp all you have to do is wipe it off. I was amazed at how easy the clean up was. These stamps could put and end to all our mailing problems and make life a little bit easier.

If you would like to, and I extremely encourage you, check out this Etsy shop then click here!!
