UUPP Prints Giveaway


I would love to introduce you to Carrie, owner of "UUPP prints" with this intro I stole from another giveaway she recently did over at See It! Love It! Win It! :)

"I am first and foremost a mother of three, and a happy wife. My "side" job is that of freelance illustrator, designer, professor and author. Typically I freelance for national and international companies. I love being an illustrator, not every knowing what my next assignment will be. Some of my clients have been: Target, HGTV, New York Magazine, The Baltimore Sun, American Greetings and more. From illustrating children's books, greeting cards, comic books, animated commercials, character development, stationary, editorial work and more, there is great variety in what I do.

I started UUPP (Unique Uplifting Positive Prints) for a very special reason however. We all go through times of peace and times of difficulty. At some point we each have to face challenging periods in our lives. Over the last few years during some really difficult times I relied on my faith, uplifting messages and positive people to see me through. I still am relying on those things. Being grateful on a daily basis is vital for me. Sometimes too when we are tending to the needs of others, we forget about our needs. For awhile I forgot about feeding my creative self.

This is why I created the work in UUPP. I am absolutely loving creating the pieces in UUPP. It is full of inspiring messages of hope, love, laughter, faith, gratitude and peace. All the categories and the new work to come are the great loves in my life. From cooking (I love love Julia Child) to the escape my garden gives me, to watching great movies and reading great books (I admit I am a Jane Austin addict), to the importance of family, to always being a good friend to others and remaining strong in my faith no matter what. I love using textures from vintage papers and fabric, combining that with hand drawn typography and illustrations. Every time I sit down to create a new piece, I am in absolute bliss. I hope you enjoy."
