Finalized Filling Station T-shirt Design

Just got the go-ahead for this T-shirt design. And the cool place that its for is worth taking a look at. They don't know I'm sending you to their website, but it's a very very worthy cause and it benefits the youth of the small town that I'm from. My little brother and sister call that place home, as well as 90% of the kids middle school thru high school. It's called The Filling Station, and you can find them here. Again, that's right here.

Go check them out and learn more about them, and if you feel moved to donate to them, all the better! Mark and Pen are good friends of mine. They baptized me in the Lake when I was 16, and have been a part of my family for even longer than that. They have a heart for the youth of the small community of Clark Fork, and any money donated to them goes towards finishing the youth center.

I am participating in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. Check her out!

May I have the envelope...PLEASE?

Soooooo. This is it.

The big moment.

The winner of my first blog is about the be announced.

But first a word from our sponsors. But it may take awhile, because our sponsors are currently also sponsoring the Winter Olympics, so hold onto your love{r}ly socks, or fabulously painted toes, and sit tight while they get here from Vancouver. Remember, border security is ridiculously tight these days.



KIDDING! Ok, there were 8 legit entries into my giveaway. 8! That's about 8 more than I figured, so I'm really excited! I hopped on over to random.org and used their integer generator. Inputted all the numbers, well...you know how that works, and the number that popped up was.......



So, 24 hours to claim your prize, email me at jessicaherbig@gmail.com, and we'll get to work!

Thanks guys for playing! This has been a lot of fun, when we get Jana's design figured out, I'll post it, and we'll get on with this fun business of giving stuff away!

More Portfolio Stuff!

Here's another Shower Invite, done in the same style as the baby shower invite, and coincidentally, hosted by the same person! We kept her very busy that year! It's a half fold, like the baby shower invite, mailable by standard post.

Design Freebies Anyone?!

Alright...whew, I'm nervous. This is my first giveaway. Normally when I've never done something before, I google it and figure out how. In this case...I'm winging it!

But, to get the ball rolling, I need to share a picture of my son, Reagan. Feel sorry for the little guy, because last night, after the Superbowl, he decided to celebrate by faceplanting off his highchair into the table, and ended up with a goose egg the size of a golfball, right in the middle of his forehead. So we were up until 10 pm with him making sure he didn't have a concussion!

Back to the giveaway! Now I'm not so nervous.
So. This. Is. What. I'm. Thinking.

This giveaway will be of one custom design, NO WEBSITE DESIGN OR CODING on this one. Let's limit this to:
  • Banners
  • Sidebar Buttons
  • Notecards, Recipe Cards, and the like
  • Business Cards
  • 1 Advertisement for Print
I think that should do it.

Now. How to enter.  You MUST be a follower and leave a comment, and in that comment tell me what you want designed for you, and give me an idea for my next giveaway. Simple, easy-peasy.

Giveaway will end on Thursday at midnight (the midnight between Thursday and Friday, not Wednesday and Thursday). I will announce the winner on Friday, of course during Reagan's naptime.  The winner will be chosen with a random number generator, and you will then have 24 hours to contact me to discuss what you want made ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!

Simple enough? So get going!

I've modified this post to participate in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday, so more people have the chance to view my blog and giveaways!

Time To Put My Money Where My Mouth Is!

Ok, time to commence with the giveaways! YAAY! I'm so excited. Thanks to Jana at Twig, probably with more props than I'm giving here, I now have 13 followers, and counting! Faster than I ever thought possible! That means, I HAVE TO GET MY BUTT IN GEAR! Time to design my heart out for one lucky winner! 

BUT....BUT....BUT.... It is Sunday. And it is Superbowl Sunday. AND...I love the Superbowl, even though I don't watch most football games. So I will figure out my rules, and methods of madness, and post tomorrow during Reagan's nap, as to what, and when, and where!

In the meantime, be thinking about what you would LOVE to have designed for you, as that will be part of the post you must post when entering. (I know that much!)  And be prepared to give me some grace. This IS my first giveaway, after all!

A picture to meditate on! From my hometown!

Baby Shower Invite

When Reagan decided to grace us with his PRESENCE, my friends decided to grace me with PRESENTS, so we had a baby shower! Even though I designed the cards, they were all fill in the blank so there was some surprise! 

I am slowly adding to my portfolio as I find the files on my computer. Look back often for more examples of my work!
