December Giveaway: Get your Techie on!

This month's giveaway comes from Easy Shop Names.com, one of the shops of our very own AmazingArt. Amazing Arts is run by Bob, who technically lives in California, but was born and raised Louisiana, and still carries it in his heart! :)

This month Bob is offering a fabulous package deal to help you get your business or websites in order for the coming year!!

What You'll Win:

The Giveaway will be for my EasyShopNames.com full Artisan Domain Name & Support Package, including 1 year of:

  • Domain Name Registration
  • Tech Support via online Help Desk or Toll Free telephone
  • 1 business day turn-around or less for all updates (forwarding changes, etc.) - most changes made in one our or less
  • Unlimited Sub-Domains

  • Blogger Domain Setup (blog.domain.com)
  • Branded Google Apps Standard under selected domain, with:

    • Up to 50 users (less 1 for me to administer the account)
    • Google Mail/Gmail
    • Google Calendar
    • Google Docs
    • Google chat username@domain.com, including AIM support
    • Google Sites – Template drive website creation with UNLIMITED number of sites
    • much, much

  • 1 business day turn-around or less for all updates (forwarding changes, etc.) - most changes made in one our or less

If the winner already has a domain name, then I’ll substitute the Artisan Support Package, which is all the same services and features, but just transfers an existing domain to our servers rather than registering a new domain name.

  1. Some nice photos, but I chose this one for the color:

    BTW, I could not get to Amazing Art by either of the links in the article. they both go to a general Artfire page.

    I went to ALL the shops and chose from Art by Mags:
    (I am a regular viewer of her MSNBC show)

    From Bluebirdart (nice colors):

    From Bobs & Bits (I like the colors, although my kids are WAY too big for this):

    Any doubt that I am heavily influenced by color?

  2. Fixed it! Thank you Wendy! I misspelled my own brother's shop name. shhhhh don't tell.. :)

  3. http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=897712

    This is my fav in Bob's shop....beautiful necklace!!

    http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28267401 and these stools are just too cute in Bobs and Bits!

    you can contact me at www.threadsofgray.etsy.com

  4. This is my favorite photo: sunset palm, http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=319195

    My favorite by Art by Mags is the fleur de lis clock: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34942356

  5. I think I should get an extra entry for that!

  6. This is one of my favorite pictures from Bob's shop. Makes me wish I was there!


    This is my favorite fleur de lis clock from art by mags.


    This is my favorite drawing from bluebird art.


    Although bobs and bits is closed, I looked at the sold items and am in love with this rocking horse! I want one for my daughter.


    You can contact me at ltzalewski@yahoo.com or www.funskimunki.etsy.com

  7. I'd love to win, but I just won last month, so it wouldn't be fair. I'd really like some help with my blog appearance (some items in the third column get cutoff and I have trouble getting the text to wrap around the photos the way I want). I could definitely use help with my domain name site, too. ESN is offering a great deal here.

  8. Since Bobs and Bits is closed for the holidays, I looked in his sold items. I liked the stools with lead- and phthalate- free paints. We keep a stool in the kitchen for reaching high shelves, but this would be more stable. (The other stool tipped over when I stepped too close to a corner, and I landed, breaking my tailbone!) http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=17463372

  9. I love this photo:

    My favorite item in the other shops has to be the time out stool. It's not available right now, but I could see us purchasing one in the future and getting a lot of use out of it. (My kids are 7, 5, 3, 3, 1, and 1 so we do a lot of time outs at this stage!)
