I’m having my first blog contest!!  (Yippee for you)

I stumbled on a few weeks ago.  It is a relatively new venue to buy and sell royalty free digital images. 

The more views the photos get, the higher in the queue they are, resulting in a higher chance to actually sell them.

How to enter the contest:

Go to Snapvillage and enter JMillen in the search window.  All of my photos will be displayed.

Click on the photo in my collection that you like best to view it.  Post a comment including the item number (found just above the top right hand corner of the photo) in a comment back to me here.

For example, this photo’s item number 43-00436492

The winner:

will be randomly drawn from all entries on Monday, July 21, 2008 at 6pm EST.  The more unique comments you log, the more chances you have to win.

The prize: 

Two cards of the winner’s choice from my Etsy shop.


If you are a photographer, perhaps you’d like to post some of your photos to SnapVillage!  Its free!

    I really like the photo of the TC State Hospital — interesting, haunting, evocative…. The number is 43-00449094. I didn’t know anything about SnapVillage — thanks for introducing me to it.

    And I take it you’re in Traverse City? I’m in Jackson…

    FIrst of all, Heather, I LOVE your blog!

    I am in TC, and I LOVE the State Hospital! They almost tore it down about 10 years ago. They had a big rummage sale and sold everything on the inside.. some of it was really creepy. They are slowly renovating, now there’s restaurants, shops, condos.. just the coolest place in town!

    THanks for posting!

    Your photos are beautiful! My favorite is the white hydrangea:

    I enjoyed looking at your photos. The one that struck me was 43-00428698 of the crayons. I’m a teacher and a mother to a toddler they just seemed to go right along with my life.

  • 14. Marla  |  July 21, 2008 at 10:53 am

    Love the swirls photo – number 43-00436495 Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    I once took a digitlal photograpy class and my end project had to have a theme. I chose fences as mine. I drove around our town looking for unique fences and ended with an incredible collection. One was from a cemetary, one almost got me arrested because the owner of the house was frightned by this lady takin pictures of her abode from across the street. Your picture (43-00449095) of the fence fits in perfectly with some of my pictures…..very unique!!
    Great site and thanks for sponsoring the contest!

    The flip flops picture is my personal favorite (43-00449107.)
    It was a tough choice, though. The photos stirred so many memories, smells and emotions. The palm leaf and hospital gate were lovely as well.
