Show and Share and a Giveaway!

I’ve called in sick three days this week (the most since maternity leave), been through 4 whole boxes of tissue, and downed an entire package of Nyquil. However, I’m to the point where I don’t think I’m going to die anymore. That’s a bonus.

I easily could have skipped SaS Day this week (‘cause I know you would understand), but I have the mother of all giveaways for you. I just couldn’t let it go.

Casey Childs contacted me recently and asked if my readers would be interested in a commissioned piece of original artwork. Hello! I don’t have a commissioned piece of anything! You send him the picture, and he sketches it for you. By hand. No machinery here, folks.


“Spud” (below) is my absolute favorite. I love how he captured so many of the details from the original photograph—including the smirk/not quite a smile that he’s giving.


You readers love your dogs! Given my relationship with the Nemesis, I don’t know that I would have him sketched, but you just can’t beat the quality of this piece. I like it better than the photograph!


There’s obviously no denying that Casey is a talented artist, and I am so happy that he’s giving an original piece of art (an $875 value!!) to you.

Right now, Casey is running a special promotion on his site. It ends Monday, so you don’t want to wait. You can purchase an original 11×14 piece of framed art for only $249 ($275 internationally). In addition, Just a Girl readers will receive another 5% off! Shut the front door. Seriously. Shut it. Enter code “JUSTAGIRL” for your extra discount.

Alright…how do you win?

Well, hello. Ahem. Allow myself to My name is Chris! And I’m a blogger! I got into blogging after spending months reading all the inspiration that is found in blogland. I thought to myself, “Self, I can do this. I might have something to offer too!” And so it began...
