I THINK this is exciting...my FIRST GIVE-AWAY!!!

EDIT!! FIRST before I tell you about the Give Away...I want to THANK Cassity from the ultra FAB site Remodelaholics.com for featuring our budget KITCHEN renovation.  She is SO sweet and her site is a WEALTH of information so check it out here if you like REMODELAHOLICS

Yup! You heard me right.  Whimages is having it's first give away EVER.  The other day I started thinking about opening an Etsy store.  I thought, "Self, you can open an Etsy store.  You've got all those pretty photo files filling up your hard drive, why don't you let some other people enjoy them too!"  and I thought that I might be onto something!  So we (Matt and I) started the process.  There are no prints IN the store yet, but I do have a rudimentary "storefront" if you want to check it out...it's http://www.whimages.etsy.com/

In the spirit of SPRING and renewal and all good things happening, it's GIVE AWAY TIME!  Here's how it's going to work folks:  You are going to get 3 chances to win.  The first is you have to become a follower or BE a follower and make a comment here about that.  THEN, you also can have another chance of winning by telling me which one of these prints (I'm going to show you in a moment) that you WOULD choose if you were to WIN!  You are going to tell me by leaving ANOTHER comment with the print name.  These are some of the VERY same photos that are going to be in the Whimages Etsy store.  I'm sneakily trying to figure out what type of prints people like.  Pretty sneaky, huh? Third chance to win, post a link on your blog linking back to this post telling about the contest.  THEN leave me another comment saying you did that and a link to your blog.  WIN WIN situation eveyone, right? Okay, so you KNOW you are going to win a print but WAIT there's MORE! (Did I sound like an infomercial there for a second? Good. I thought so.) 
The print will be professionally printed on matte paper and will either be a 6x6 framed in a black FLOATING frame (that's the kind where the wall color shows through AS the mat...I LOVE those.  OR it will be a 8x10 in a black frame, it depends on the photo and you are just going to have to trust my judement here everyone.  Some photos totally lend themselves to squares...it just depends.  I have 2 black floating 6 x 6 photos framed in my black and white photo collage in my family room.  Either one will be fabulous!  All of these prints will be available in color or black and white even if I don't show it that way, so if you choose one that's not shown in BW but you WANT BW,  or you want COLOR, tell me in the comment.  THERE WILL BE MANY MORE in the store but it took me forever to load these onto this page and it got all wonky because of the sizes and my template and stuff...so really check the store early next week.  AND if you mention this post and order by April 25, you'll get 15% off! ;-)


Let's break this down and get rid of the confusion.  If you want to win, this is what you do:
1.  BECOME a Follower over there ----- to the right or you can be one already.
2.  Post a COMMENT ON THIS POST about being a follower (thank you in advance!)
AND for another chance to win
3. Check out some of this photo goodness (I'm not patting myself on the back, some are taken by my father!)
4. LEAVE a COMMENT ON THIS POST telling me which photo you would choose.
5. POST on your blog a link to this post and then leave a comment with a link to your blog telling me you did!
THAT'S it!  EASY PEASY~!
THEN I'm going to use that ultra cool random number generator to pick the winner!  My kids really want me to put all your names in a hat, but that's not going to happen.  I've been dying to use that random number generator like all the cool bloggers.  Now is my chance. ;-)
YOU have till Sunday, March 28 at midnight to enter.  That's a whole lotta time, so tell your friends!
Okay, here we go, they'll be smaller but you can click on them to see it bigger and of course you won't have a copyright on yours...I hope you like them!















If you made it this far, I'm so proud of your endurance! Check back next week, I'm going to be featuring a SUPER SWEET CUTE COTTAGE that my dear friend Tina is moving into this weekend. Tina has a FABULOUS decorating eye so you are sure to want to tune in to see what she does!

What talent you have! I am now following your blog and if I absolutely have to chose a photo, I think that I would chose the chippy chair with the flowers in black and white...I think. Any of them would be wonderful. Great giveaway!

Kimberly said...

I love them all but I can't decide between the Bridge, the Bird on a wire (probably because there is some symbolism in that one) and the peonies on the chair (color). They are all great!

Wow, those pictures are just beautiful! They look like something from a Martha Stewart magazine, especially the white chair with the colorful flowers. Good luck with your Etsy shop! I look forward to seeing how that goes for you. I'm hoping to start one at some point too!

Hi! I just became a follower. I love giveaways! I found you through Remodelaholic, which I found through The Frugal Designer, which I found through Knock Off Wood. Too much time on the computer today :O)

karibarnes said...

These are all amazing. I absolutely love the first photo of the flowers on the chair, I love the reflection in the vase. I also really like both of the sunflowers and the bridge.

Sweet Little Smoothie said...

Hey there! I'm a follower :) My two favorites are the pitcher of ranunculus on the chair and the tight close up of the tulips (I'm such a sucker for flowers especially because spring has finally sprung!!!) Thanks for the chance to win one of your amazing photographs!!

Lori said...

Robyn~ Wow! So happy that you are building an Etsy site! Love Love Love ETSY! You will do fantastic! I am getting ready to check out your Etsy store next! I also just "followed" your blog via twitter but as you know I have been checking out your wonderful blog for awhile now! :) Now..for photos...how can one choose? They are all so wonderful! But if I had to choose I think I like the color close up of the tulips near the end...and love all the flower shots..color and black and white..flowers ROCK! I think the cool bridge shot and the rustic shots are cool as well! They will all sell...there is something for everyone there! Go ROBYN! :)

I think I would pick the picture with the oranges and melon, but I'd have to ask my hubs because he loves prints!
