  1. Hi there,

    I am Sarah Del Rosario. I am a mommy blogger, aspiring artist and Community Outreach Specialist at https://www.canvasfactory.com/. At the Canvas Factory we have a simple mission: We want to make online photo printing easy and affordable for everyone.

    I read about your article about Halloween Treats For Kids. It’s very interesting. I also shared it in my facebook profile and twitter account.

    I was wondering if you might be interested in hosting a giveaway for your readers? We would be happy to provide a photo canvas print (with free delivery!) for your review and another for you to giveaway to your audience. Let me know if this is something that might be a good fit for your blog.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
