*** 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!
