UUPP gift card giveaway!

















Today I'm very excited to feature a great artist, illustrator, mom of 3, and fellow blogger trying to spread smiles and love to people :)
She is Carrie of the Etsy store "UUPP"
Her prints are not only cute and fun but also inspirational and UPlifting!
They have definitely inspired and helped me, especially after the earthquake and tsunami hit my home country. 
I can't imagine anyone not smiling when looking at her prints!
Just like me, she is a big foodie as you can see from her prints.
You can also tell how much she loves her home, and how much she "loves to love"!
Some of my favorites are:






Uplifting hearts through art...I need do more of this! To inspire and make people happy through my music, as well as my blog!

Here are her responses to some questions I had for her:









What inspired you to start making these prints?
I started making prints in response to some really difficult times I have had over the past few years.  We all go through these times at some point. I really looked for things to help lift my spirit. I find hope, peace and love, through my family, friends and faith life.  I started channeling my creativity into designing art prints of my favorite quotes, inspirational sayings, anything that was uplifting. I decided to open a store and name it UUPP (unique uplifting positive prints). That name seemed to capture everything.   I have been overwhelmed with the response from people  who have found something uplifting about my work.  It feels really good to know that I am able to use my gifts for others in this small way!

What are your goals? (with your prints, as well as in life!?)
I am currently writing several children’s books. I have illustrated 15 books already. Writing is my new venture.  It has been really exciting to pursue this.
As far as my Etsy store, I have more ideas than I could possibly create in a lifetime.  I love that though.  I am going to continue to make work from the heart.


What else do you enjoy doing? (other hobbies, talents, loves :)  )
I absolutely love to garden, both flowers and vegetables.  I also love to cook as you can probably tell by my Julia Child section in my store!
When I am able to convince my teenage daughters to garden with me or cook with me, it makes it even sweeter. I also have a 2 year old and he loves to do both.
