Impromptu Friday GIVEAWAY!

We have had a ton of stuff going on lately and we though we’d take a minute to fill you in.

We added a few new signs to our offerings.  They’re in our etsy store and they make killer wedding/bridal shower gifts.

We have also been working on updating our facebook presence and have recently added a fan page for Back40Life.  Become a fan (see box on left side bar) so we can stay in touch.

We just finished a show at the Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC and it went great.  We started gathering email addresses to keep in touch with folks we meet at the shows.  We have met some of the coolest folks at shows, whether they be customers, vendors, or organizers.

We have a charity auction in Greenville this Saturday night where a few of our items will be auctioned to benefit a family in the area whose daughter has a heart defect requiring very expensive surgeries.  Its not, but we love helping out where we can.

We’re starting an email newsletter to let everyone know of special events we have coming up.  We’d love for you to sign up – we promise to only send you information about Back40Life and we won’t bug you to death either.  I hate it when I sign up for something only to get “periodic” updates about every other day.  You can sign up now on the left side bar.

[gickr.com]_5e98d54b-9dd7-6b64-610d-afffba7b8bc6We’ve been advertising on thenester.com and have received quite good results from our ad placement there.  So, we decided to try Classic Bride to show off some of our wedding items.

So, we’ve been trying do a better job at staying in touch with everyone and hopefully all the changes we’ve made recently will make it easier to do so.  Thanks for bearing with us and thanks for the business you’ve sent to us.  We’ll talk to you later.

    My favorite item in your shop is the “For this child I prayed” vinyl. I’d buy it for my friend, who is moving into a new house next weekend. Cool story: her husband had a vasectomy after their 4th child but she was never at peace about it. She prayed Hannah’s prayer that somehow the Lord would add to their family. 2 years after the procedure, she got pregnant and she KNEW it was a boy… whom she named Samuel.

    I like the ‘Trust in the Lord’ decal. Although I really like all of the kid’s name decals, too. It would be a tough decision. :)
