Tina Steinberg Fingerprint Jewelry [Giveaway]

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” ~ Flavia Weedn

I have always loved that quote, and even more so now that I am a mother. My children have awakened a new understanding in me, and have left their precious footprints and fingerprints all over my heart.  And without a doubt, they have forever changed me.

Which is why I am so in love with Tina Steinberg jewelry, where you can take imprints of your loved one’s fingerprint, and put them into the most special silver pendants.

One of the first jewelry artists to handcraft silver jewelry customized with fingerprint impressions, her “Love Touch Collection” has received attention and accolades worldwide.

She is able to do the entire process by mail ~ you simply order a design and send sends an easy kit for you to do the impressions. And then you can wear those sweet little prints close to your heart all day long.

For the month of August 2012, Tina is offering Tiny Oranges readers a nice perk*!

For Love Touch product totals of $95 or more, Tina will personally visit you to do your fingerprint impressions if you reside within Orange County.  If you’d like to do the process by mail, you can receive $25 off your product total of $95 or more with coupon code “TINYORANGES” when ordering online through 8/31/2012.

Hooray!  I also have a Tiny Giveaway of a $50 gift card to use toward any product on her site (shipping charges additional.) Here’s how to enter…

Artimus Art: Custom Books of Your Child’s Art!

see more by

Have you ever wondered what to do with your child’s art?  Personally, I feel guilty throwing it out, so lots of time they end up in a drawer or box with the thought “someday I will do something with these…” But that day never comes! If you have found yourself in the same boat, I am thrilled to tell you about Artimus Art, a company that takes the hassle out of preserving children’s artwork.

You send them your child’s artwork and they send you back a beautiful, professionally crafted fine art coffee table book to showcase your little one’s creations.The oversized books measure 11″ x 11″ and even include customizable covers a dedication page with photo upload. And, Artimus Art is giving away one of their 30 page Red Wagon books this week, so make SURE to enter below mamas!

Wouldn’t this make a darling gift for a grandparent? And seeing that we are approaching the end of school, wouldn’t it be a great idea to do an art book for each school year?  Or how about having children in a class each contribute a piece for a special teacher’s gift?

When I first heard about this company I wondered how they would get my child’s art into a printed hard cover, case bound book, so let me tell you how it works

1. First you count the number of art pieces you have, then choose a package on their website that fits the amount of artwork you have. You can order down as you can always add pages to a book package.

The Red Wagon package is a 30 page book, the Trolley, a 50 page book, or a Dump Truck, an 80 page book.  The art collection box shipping is included in all packages.

2. Once purchased, your art collection box will be shipped the next business day and includes a return label to send in your artwork. The collection box will include an order form to add pages, extra oversized artwork, and to order extra book copies. All you have to do is take the stack of artwork and put it in the oversized bag and mail it in along with your order form. Easy peasy!

3. When it arrives, each piece is scanned, digitally enhanced, gently restored, digitized and posted to a web gallery. By the way, you will also get email updates along the way to let you they received it. They can even scan pieces with glitter, macaroni or other materials!

4. Once a customer’s artwork is posted, they are notified by email. They can then log on to their account to customize their book. You can customize the cover, color, font, do a dedication page with a photo, even title the artwork if you would like.

5. When your customizing is complete, your book will be printed and bound, and they will return your artwork along with your art collection book.

Each book package includes one book, but if extra copies are desired, you can order duplicate copies at a reduced price.  For $20.00, you can even do a unique dedication page for grandparents, aunts, friends, anyone!

In addition to preserving your child’s artwork in the hardcover book, Artimus Art now also offers a CD with high resolution files of all your child’s art images. You can turn these files in a JPEG for use in countless projects such as iron-ons, invitations, cards, etc.  You can add on a disc to any package for only $35.

And let me just reiterate about the quality, these are not your run of the mill photo books, these are fine art quality books.  Quality is the number one priority for Artimus Art, so each piece is beautifully scanned with high attention to the color enhancement so the finished project is jaw dropping. All you have to do is Google “Artimus Art” and you can read all the rave reviews for yourself.

If you have a specific favorite piece of art, you can also order a canvas print to hang on your wall.  Such a darling gift idea or fun for a sibling’s room or new baby nursery. Oh la la I just LOVE the possibilities of Artimus Art!

And ONE very lucky reader today has the opportunity to win one Red Wagon Book ($165 value!) To enter, complete as many of the Rafflecopter entry options as you would like below. The more you do, the more chances to win. GOOD LUCK!

Cheap Collage

I recently discovered the company Cheap Collage online and thought it was a cute idea so I wanted to share it with you. If you are interested in making your own collage, enter code “tiny50” for  50% OFF any order through 2/14/12 – yippee!

First you choose your shape or design your own, upload your personal photos, and then your photos are used in the shape of the design to make a personal and unique piece of artwork.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought this heart collage would make a VERY cute gift for a grandparent or child (but please note Valentine’s order deadline is 2/3 to ensure you get it on time!)

You can also choose to incorporate one picture or many pictures inside of one word, like your child’s name or FAMILY.  How cute would that be?  Or, something like “LUKE TURNS 3” with pictures throughout the year for a birthday party idea?

You could make one of your vacation, use honeymoon or wedding pictures, make one as a gift for a alumni that is nuts over their alma mater, anything!

They also have great race car or airplane design for those of you with little boys who love all things that go! Or a butterfly for your little girls.

But this one happens to be my favorite…and just in time for the month that we celebrate it…

Ahhhhh…and once again, to show us their love, Cheap Collage is offering a coupon code to Tiny Oranges readers to make it even cheaper.

Enter promo code “tiny50” for 50% OFF today through 2/14/12.
