back40life {sponsored giveaway}

*** giveaway is now closed***

i have had the pleasure of getting to know many other women in the creative business industry through this blog, lately more closely through my sponsors.  it is amazing to see how many women are in business and using their creativity to help out their families and take pride and have joy in their work!

today’s giveaway is sponsored by back40life.

before i get to the giveaway, here’s a sweet introduction to their business, selling handcrafted signs and wall decals:

Hi – my name is Jodi…I’d love to tell you a little of our story. Brad & I have been married now for almost ten years, eight of which we’ve been self-employed. We have been blessed with two precious children – Walker is 4 and Cameron is 2.  We live out in the country on 9 acres, which we’ve always jokingly referred to as “the back 40”.

A few years ago amidst the stress & fast-pace of a successful construction business we began to realize that our business was taking over our family & that we were hardly enjoying life because we were working non-stop. We began to scale back our commitments, evaluate every decision more carefully & make changes that would allow us to live a slower, more family-oriented lifestyle. Thus began the dream of Back40Life…a slower pace that celebrated the simplicity of life and found enjoyment in the everyday.

We started our vinyl business in May of ’09, not long after our little girl was born, mostly as a creative outlet for me and to earn some extra income from home to help compensate for the slow-down in the construction industry…little did we know what God had in store. He has blessed us tremendously and allowed our business to grow, and we’re now at a place where we’re close to supporting our family entirely with Back40Life.

One of the things I love most about working with vinyl decals is that it allows me to be creative without being artistic…and to provide affordable home decor items that bring enjoyment everyday.  We’re constantly on the lookout for new projects and ideas that will keep our business fresh and new…and thanking God everyday for a business that is fun and a blessing to our family!

wow!  what a dream they are living!  i would soooo love for sean to be home with me and we could figure out this whole “owning a business” thing together… a girl can dream!

jodi is offering one of you a $25 shop credit to their store!  there are so many fun things in there, from signs to verses and monograms.  but where i start to drool is the custom photo canvas.  i want.  i need.

so do tell: how would you spend your $25 credit at back40life?  what makes you drool?


  1. 1

    I adore the family monogram! I’m currently redecorating my home & would love this as a focal piece!

  2. 3

    I love the Laundry decal, and the Family Chore boards! (is this open to international? I am in Australia.)

  3. 4

    i LOVE the monogram placed over the crib — that would be adorable in my daughter’s room!

  4. 5

    I’d love to have something sweet four NEW baby’s nursery. This is our first child and I would love to decorate his/her room with something beautiful! :)

  5. 6

    oh heavens- I just spelled “four” instead of “for.” and left out the word “our.” worst kindergarten teacher ever!

  6. 7

    now I think I love the animal monograms best – but they are all fab :) hugs le xox

  7. 8

    oooo so many to love…but i really like the double block monogram. that would look fabulous in my little boys room. and i would like the always kiss me goodnight sign too!
    great shop.
    thanks for sharing.

  8. 9

    Their story is so inspiring. I dream of a day when I could own my own Children’s Birthday Party Planning Business. I so wish for God’s Will to turn to mine. Don’t we all? Anyway, I love the animal monograms, the family name plaques, and of course the photo canvas’. They’ve got a good thing going.

  9. 10

    I like the Medium (12×18) Vertical Fabric Covered Magnet Board.

  10. 11

    I also think the Medium (12×18) Vertical Fabric Covered Magnet Board (in the floral print) would look really cute in a study (and be rather useful too).

  11. 12

    I think the animal alphabet monogram is adorable! I would love to get one for my niece!

  12. 13

    I would use it to purchase the Trust in the Lord verse. That is our family verse and I have wanted to have it put on our wall for a long time!!! Fingers crossed that I win!!

  13. 14

    I’d love the large vintage monogram for the wall above our bed. We live in an earthquake zone and this kind of decor is very safe!

  14. 15

    I think I would pick a sign, not sure which one. Or I may pick something else everything is so fun!!!

  15. 16
    Lisa Layton says:

    I love the “This child I prayed” verse. I really like all the verses!

    They remind me alot of our family. Married for almost 10 years, 2 kids, same ages, and self employed for almost all 10 years. It’s neat to see how God works in different peoples lives.

    Thanks for the give away!

  16. 17

    I LOVE this Vinyl…I’d have to spend it on this
    Monogram Initial and Name Vinyl Wall Decal

  17. 18

    I love the photo canvas! I’d love to do one for my daughters 4th birthday pic!

  18. 19

    I love the canvas too! I also like the front door numbers.

  19. 20

    For my little man’s 2nd Birthday I’m re-doing his room, putting in a big boy bed, taking out the changing table, etc. The Play, Laugh, Giggle wall decal would be perfect in his room! I am definetly drooling over that!!

    Thanks much –

  20. 21

    Been wanting to do the front door numbers for while. Also, love the monograms great stuff!

  21. 22

    I love the bird silouettes, I also love words/Bible verses but I think I would pick the blck birds first :)

  22. 23

    They have some really cool mailbox vinyl. I might have to scrape off the one I already have and go for something new.

  23. 24

    too cute. i’d order two polka dot oval monograms~! one for over each of my kids beds.

  24. 25

    I’m a huge fan of any of the wall decals that include scripture. However, like you the one thing that really makes me drool is a canvas print! I have always wanted to have one of those, they just look so cool.

  25. 26

    So hard to choose! But, I adore the Vintage Inspired Monogram- so gorgeous! -e

  26. 27
    Adrienne S says:

    Definately the custom vinyl. I would love one of those!

  27. 28

    I really like the flower magnetic board for my daughter’s room. Thanks!

  28. 29

    I would really love the 10×24 in. Family Name with Flourish Sign. This would go perfect right above the entryway to our kitchen. I LOVE IT!

  29. 30
    Tiffany LaRocca says:

    Ooooooh, I would LOVE a photo canvas……I love nothing more than pictures of my sweet children….LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

  30. 31

    I love the swirly circle family monogram. We have an entry way bench that it would be beautiful above. I have been wondering what to do with that big open white space- what a perfect solution! :) It was hard to choose though!

  31. 32

    I think I’d have to get something to push along our master bedroom make over!

  32. 33

    Would love to win so I can buy the twinkle twinkle wall decal!!!

  33. 34

    I would love a sign! Hee things are beautiful!

  34. 35

    I love the bird & furniture silhouettes!

  35. 36
    April Taylor says:

    Ooh. I would like the Laundry sign. I need something to encourage me to do keep up on the mountain of clothes.

  36. 37

    Thanks for sharing! Love her stuff! I love, love the ‘days until’ chalkboard sign! What a great idea!
    Have a great trip! Can’t wait to hear about blissdom!

  37. 38

    I love them all. I esp. like Praise HIs name with dancing. Thanks for the chance.

  38. 39
    Tina Burbank says:

    I would absolutely spend it on wall art. I am addicted to vinyl wall art. It would probably be a custom order about rain… I love rain!

  39. 40

    I would do a custom verse on a wall in my bedroom.

    The verses are so beautiful, and I love the idea of the constant reminder of God’s words in a spot in my house.

    Lovely shop!!

  40. 41

    wow – so hard to choose! i think i would probably choose one of the bible verses, as we are making a concentrated effort to memorize more scripture this year. what a convenient – and beautiful! – way to do that!

  41. 42

    I’m really drawn towards the monograms – –

  42. 43

    Drooling over…….

    I prayed for this child, and Love you for Always. Both have significant meaning between me and my little boy. I would love to put them up in his room!

  43. 44
    michelleF says:

    so many lovely things!! I really like the vintage monogram & the dance floor decals – so fun!!

  44. 45

    I love the magnet boards and also the sign that says “the fondest memories are made gathered round this table.”

  45. 46

    I’d love the fruits of the spirit! love all this stuff!

  46. 47

    Love the Swirly Family Monogram. Tho’ I might save the credit and use it for something for our baby’s room…when the LORD sees fit to send him/her. :)

  47. 48

    The custom canvas makes me drool too!!!! Although I like the cute little animal monograms.

  48. 49

    Love the large vintage monogram! So many fun things in the shop!

  49. 50

    Love the sign, “The fondest memories are made gathered around the table.” That just speaks to me.

  50. 51

    I would put The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things with all my family photos.

  51. 52

    ohhh i just love the large vintage mongram decal…i can just picture it in my house! lots of lovely things in the shop!

  52. 53

    it would have to be Trust in the Lord – Proverbs 3:5-6 without a doubt because that is my daughter’s verse for this year.

  53. 54
    Katie Snow says:

    I love it all, but my favorites are probably the initial plaques and the sign about being around the table together. Perfect!

  54. 55
    Evelyn Dalton says:

    Beautiful, inspiring story!! What a neat gift Jodi is blessed with! And then to be so generous to share!! I truly like the wall art that, if mine, would read, the dalton family, as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. I didnt see one item I didnt want!! Thanks again!!

  55. 56

    I love the “Love God. Love Others” sign. It would look awesome hanging in my kitchen. That is something we are always telling our children that we want them to love God and others. Thanks for pointing us in the direction of this shop.

  56. 57

    I would probably choose a family name sign. I love everything in the shop though.

  57. 58

    I love the large scalloped circle monogram. It would look perfect in my daughters room!

  58. 59

    I love the canvas picture. Since both my husband and I are active duty military and we live in military housing (where your not really allowed to decorate) I think this is one of those pieces that would look as beautiful now on a white rented wall as it will on a wall of the house we hope to buy. I guess great Jodi(e)’s think alike, because I did not see anything in her store that I did not love Love Love!

  59. 60

    I would pick the custom family initial plaque! Very cool!

  60. 61

    I have had my eye on the chore chart for a while.

  61. 62

    Thanks for showing us these! I really like the wood sign that says “Give thanks”. I would either get that or one of the many amazing words of wisdom for the walls. Also the …days until…sign is cool too! I’m going to bookmark this site for the next time I need this type of thing!

  62. 63

    Oh!!! I love it all…I think I would get a sign…probably Always Kiss Me Goodnight and put it in my soon to be renovated bedroom!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Lindsey!


  63. 64

    Okay I am drooling A LOT. Love the shop! I especially LOVE the
    10×24 in. Family Name with Flourish Sign. Thanks!

  64. 65

    I think the “be still and know….” wall sticker would be a perfect daily reminder for us!

  65. 66

    I love back40life- I have the Prov. 3:5-6 decal in my master bathroom and there are some many other things on their site that I’ve been eyeballing…the fruit of the spirit decal for my living area would be my first choice!

  66. 67

    I would l.o.v.e. the Prov. decal to put in my playroom above our bookshelf-just like on the blog! My mom and I follow your blog Lindsey and she 9my mom) started a blog called curtainsinmytree about funky vintage stuff we love. Look us up in good old 10 inches of snow last night . I have 4 boys 7 and under Missouri! : ) We *heart* homeschooling too.

  67. 68

    I think I would get the Psalm 65:5 wall decal. They have so many gorgeous things though! Lots of lovely gifts…


  68. 69

    I love the WALK WORTHY one. I want my children and really anyone who spends time in our home to clearly know what we’re about…what our goal is. It brings a new look to the command to teach them to our children and write them on our doorposts!

  69. 70

    I think I would spend it on a custom photo canvas. I have a 3 month old and cannot stop taking pictures of her!

  70. 71

    such pretty things! i think i would get the custom family initial plaque.

  71. 72

    I would for sure get the custom canvas, darling!

  72. 73

    Already a fan of them, I have one of their wooden signs…love them!

  73. 74

    I love the baseball design. It would be perfect in my son’s room!!

  74. 75
    Kristin Y says:

    I like the scalloped circle monogram.

  75. 76

    i would want a vinyl decal for my wall….probably a bible verse – we rent our house so any little thing to spruce it up is fun!

  76. 77
    Amber Treat says:

    What a great site! I love the family monograms and the fabric covered magnet boards. Also the wall decal that says, “EAT!” As if my teenagers need any reminders!

  77. 78

    maybe a custom canvas? Hard to decide!

  78. 79

    There are too many things to choose from! I adore the family name with flourish sign.. that’s probably what I’d get. I also love every one of the verses! ..the birth announcement canvas is to die for!!

  79. 80

    Oh, please pick me! I’ve been wanting the “6 person family chore chart” for so long and this would enable me to get it!! I love it!

  80. 81
    Michelle Skalet says:

    Love the custon photo canvas… and it just so happens that I have a beautiful baby to put on one!!:)

  81. 82

    I Love the verses, especially the `hope` vinyl wall decal, but we`re selling our house, and i wouldn`t want to leave it, so I would go with a family sign that could move with us!

  82. 83

    I love the photo canvas as well….and that cute baby in the sample is to die for!!! :)

  83. 84

    That photo canvas is todiefor! I would definitely get that. I have a 7 month old little guy and I have the perfect picture for it.

  84. 85

    I want one of each! I love letters and words and wouldn’t mind having one in every room. I especially like the idea of a pretend frame (the big one on the wall) so I can change out wall decorations but have each of them looked more finished off with the vinal frame around it. What a cute idea!

  85. 86
    Amanda Dalton says:

    LOVE the Bible verses! I have one from another company which I have enjoyed but back40life has a fantastic selection! It’s just another creative way to display the Word in our home. Not that 3×5 index cards are bad but this is certainly more eye appealing :)

  86. 87

    I’m loving the photo canvases as well. With Baby #4 due to make an appearance any day (minute) now, I would love to have a big picture of my three girls and their new baby brother. I’m inspired!

  87. 88

    It is hard to pick one favorite thing – I love it all! Thanks for the chance to win.

  88. 89

    I think I would have her make a canvas with “For I know the plans I have for you…”
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  89. 90

    Everything? but I would really like the canvas or the vinyl that says Be still and know that I am God!!! Love IT

  90. 91

    I would get the baseball (s) for the boys room with their name (s)!!!!

  91. 92

    I love the one with the verse ‘every good and perfect gift is from above!’

  92. 93
    FoxyMomma says:

    there are so many cute designs, i don’t know what to pick! i would like something for my son’s room. i like the Scalloped Circle Monogram with Name Vinyl Wall Decal or the Animal Alphabet Monogram with Name Wall Vinyl with E for Ethan.

  93. 94

    Oh my GOSH!!! What is NOT to LOVE COMPLETELY?! and what do I NOT TOTALLY NEED?! I have found a new favorite!!!!

  94. 95
    Madeleine says:

    That photo canvas and sign are simply delightful! Also, their commitment to their faith and family is so inspirational…what an amazing testament!

  95. 96

    I know it sounds crazy…but I want that monogram vinyl for my mailbox. My mailbox is a major source of disgust for me…as it is battered and beaten up….but new ones aren’t cheap and I am trying to work with what I have (it does still work, afterall). For weeks, I have been thinking I am going to unscrew it from the post, put in a new post and then spray paint the mailbox a cool color…but then what? Vinyl monogram, that’s what!



  96. 97

    Family name with flourish sign..beautiful!

  97. 98

    Well lets be honest I swoon over all of it. But I love the “the fondest memories are made gathered around the table” sign. WE spend so much time at our table together that is just perfect and so true. I also love all the family name signs.

  98. 99

    I agree with everyone else! what is there that you dont just fall in love with!? Im a sucker for wall vinyls! thanks for the chance! xxoo.

  99. 100

    I love the TWO SIDES – Stylish Mailbox Address Vinyl Decal! So cute!

  100. 101

    I really like the two sided mailbox decals. We have a really ugly mailbox, but if I got these I think we just HAVE to get a new one to put them on.

  101. 102

    Love the Animal Alphabet Monogram with Name Wall Vinyl–adorable!

  102. 103
  103. 104

    I am in love with the fabric covered magnetic board. So adorable!

  104. 105

    Love the Trust in the Lord sign. Such cute stuff!

  105. 106

    I would DIE for a photo canvas of my engagement photo! How perfectly sweet are her items?! LOVE.

  106. 107

    so hard to choose…. I love verses because they are serve as such helpful reminders throughout our day to day life… but I would have to choose the custom photo canvas. I have been on a photo craze since our son was born and we finally broke down and bought an SLR.

  107. 108

    oh my goodness, i am constantly thinking of verses that i want to plaster all over our walls. i want our home to be decorated with scripture. but i have lousy painting handwriting! i’d totally love vinyl wall decals. their col. 1:10 is one of many great ones! (is it silly to pray about winning a contest?) :)

  108. 109

    I think I would like to do something to my front door using vinyl from back40. welcome? new house numbers?

  109. 110

    I love the Give Thanks wooden sign! I am constantly taking time to pause and remember to be grateful and thankful for all of the blessings in my life and it would be great to have it hanging in writing on the wall :)

  110. 111
    girlsmama says:

    I love the mailbox monogram or maybe a custom saying for our dining room.

  111. 112

    Love love love the swirling family monogram – Tough part would be deciding which room to put it in!!!

  112. 113

    Definitely a custom photo canvas. I have been wanting one for so long!

  113. 114

    I think I would choose either the swirly circle family monogram! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

  114. 115

    I love the Alphabet letters – my son’s “M” with a monkey would be perfect for his monkey-themed bathroom!

  115. 116

    Definitely the photo canvas!! I LOVE the look of these and have been wanting one for a long time — especially since my baby girl was born last June!

  116. 117

    I love the Jerimiah 21:11 verse. It is something I tell my kids often.

  117. 118

    i love the photo canvas! so great!

  118. 119

    I love it all, especially the monograms and the scripture vinyls. It makes me wish I had a place of my own to decorate.

  119. 120

    I like the “Trust in the Lord” vinyl wall decal.

  120. 121

    I would totally get the mail box decal! LOVE IT!

  121. 122

    Oooo… I would love a Bible verse decal for the large blank wall over the computer desk!

  122. 123

    that’s a hard one. i like either the child’s initial, or Col. 1:10 or fruits of the spirit!

  123. 124

    Chore chart and chore tags for me!!! Got 4 kids and that would be such a super easy way for me to delegate!! I love it!!!

  124. 125

    I love the front door decorations. We live in an apartment, so anything to differentiate our front door from the neighbor’s is awesome in my book!

  125. 126

    Wow I love so much of it. I have a custom piece in mind… I would also love that photo canvas. Amazing.

  126. 127

    I love everything on that site! My favorite has to be the Bird Silhouettes, I found so many beautiful things I would splurge on! Love it! Erin

  127. 128

    a wall decal…in my adopted sons’ room…we are waiting for them to come home…

  128. 129
    connie tacazon says:

    I would get an inspirational quote for my entryway.

  129. 130

    I love the mailbox and front door decals!

  130. 131

    I love the animal alphabet

  131. 132

    I think I’d pick the Twinkle, Twinkle decal (to save for my someday baby)…. or one of the verses (that I could use now!)

  132. 133

    I would so love the custom For this child I prayed for my little girls room! What beautiful things they have…thank you for sharing them with us!

  133. 134

    I would spend it on a distressed family name sign! i actually just looked at their shop on Etsy before seeing the giveaway! how fun!

  134. 135

    I have just possibly become OBSESSED with this Etsy store. WOW, you ladies are so creaitive and I am just buying everything up. HA! I LOVE the oversized “Always Kiss Me Goodnight” sign with our initials on it. AMAZING and I have a perfectly empty wall to showcase it on.

  135. 136

    Ohhh, that personalized canvas makes me drool too. I would put a picture of the boys and I on it with my favorite poem:

    You are the trip I did not take
    You are the pearls I cannot buy
    You are my blue Italian lake
    You are my piece of foreign sky

    (anne campbell)

    That would be heavenly with this recent darling picture of the my two young boys and I!

  136. 137

    The custom photo canvas, hands down. I am having another baby in May and it would be beautiful.


  137. 138

    I love the Hope in the Lord — Isaiah 40 31 Vinyl Wall Decal…it is one of my oldest’s daughters favorite verses.

    Of course, everything in their etsy shop is beautiful!


  138. 139

    I was just thinking that I needed a vinyl saying on my bedroom wall! So a vinyl decal would be what I would get. Not sure what it would say yet but maybe something about love, family or something like that.

  139. 140

    I think that a vinyl saying or scripture would look great in my apartment! I have been looking for one since the school year started but haven’t found any keepers. I know I wouldn’t have that problem in her shop!

  140. 141

    So many great things! I think I’d get a monogram to go over our headboard.

  141. 142
    Mitzi Overturf says:

    The family monogram is adorable…. well, it ALL is really!! I would have to pick one to start with and grow from!!

  142. 143

    I love the “days until” vinyl and the house numbers vinyl (for the front door)!

    I love Psalm 65:5. It would be great on the wall to remember all of the time:) Thanks for the chance to win!

    sylvia mclaughlin says:

    in this home decal is perfect for our new playroom!

  145. 146

    I love the family decal. I have the perfect spot for it.

  146. 147

    There are several wall verses that would be perfect for my baby girls room! So sweet!

  147. 148

    I’ve been looking into buying a vinyal wall decal to go above our flat screen tv. My husband has banned me from hanging anything above it but the space seems so empty so I thought I could do a vinyal wall art and not have to worry about something fallling and damaging his precious tv. lol. I like the large vintage monogram or the large swirly monogram letter. Hope I win! Great giveaway!

  148. 149

    I am in love with the picture wall canvas. I am expecting my first child and would love to add the picture wall canvas when the time comes.

  149. 150

    I’m with you and am drooling over the canvases. I also love the verses! So many choices.

  150. 151

    I would like to throw my mailmen and mailwomen a bone and help them out.

    Hook me up with one of those fancy mailbox decals. Fo’ Shizzle!

  151. 152

    Since we are not in our ‘forever’ house, I would LOVE one of these. Picking just one is so hard… but, I am drawn to the monograms in particular.

  152. 153
    Rosemariee says:

    I love the TWO color double-block Train with Name Vinyl Wall Decal!

  153. 154
    Melissa Thacker says:

    I immediately was drooling over the “Trust in the Lord” wall decor. This is my life verse. And this year I have leaned heavily upon it. I envision it alongside a frame that contains two photos of myself with my husband. One from our wedding day 10 years ago and one from this Christmas. You see, this Christmas was God’s miracle–we’ve been separated for a year and that picture demonstrates just how very trustworthy our God is. I would be just thrilled to win.

  154. 155

    There are times that I see something and can’t get it off my mind and wonder if I should purchase it or not. As soon as I saw the vinyl words on the wall when this post came up my heart flipped for it! Flipped. I will have to figure out where to use it. Not if. When. :)

  198. 199

    Wow… how would I pick just one!? We just had a little boy and the wall verses and monogrammed baseball decal are calling my name. But so are the family decals, mailbox decals, and of course the customized canvas print! Yikes… such great stuff! Just found your site through blog-hopping and I’m adding it to my faves! Thanks for turning us onto back40life too, what a great story and great people!

  216. 217

    I loved the story and this website! I would spend my $25 on the Jeremiah 29:11 verse. It is one of our life verses and I would love to put it up in my dining room. I stick note cards up around the house with verses on them to remind my family of cool verses. It would really be nice to have something that actually looked good!

  217. 218

    i would love the large monogram over my bed. i have a blank wall and need something there.

    My husband and I just got married, bought our first home, and got a dog all within about 3 months. We are working on updating our home, and making it totally ours. I want the “always kiss me goodnight” saying in our master bedroom. I think it’s romantic, and a wonderful reminder of the things that make a great marriage really work :)

    I’d go with a custom canvas but it would be a tough decision!
