Holiday Shopping/DecalGirl Artists Pt. 3

This is our traditional (8-th) Friday post in  the series of weekly giveaways sponsored by DecalGirl.com. The winner of prize is Marty with the following comment “So far I am pleased with my kindle fire. My first kindle…”  Our congratulation to him (her).  You need only to leave a comment what you think about Kindle Fire on our site to be in the game. In the next Friday we will announce and send a personal message on email with redemption code in case you win. It is good chance to get a new case to your new Kindle Fire. Do not lose it.


Getting ready to hit the stores for Black Friday?  Have you made your list and checked it at least a dozen times?  Do you have extra coffee and energy drinks in the pantry so you can stay wide awake during the midnight sales?  Or would you rather avoid the whole thing altogether?

Well, it’s important to patronize your local stores, especially the small businesses, but there are some things it is better to shop for online, and for some you simply have no choice.  Sure, you can stand in line for hours at Target or Best Buy, or Walmart to get the new Kindles for yourself and all your friends and family, but do you really want to do that?  Really??

If you are reading this, there’s a good chance that you will be joining millions who will be spending, in all likelihood, over $1 billion online on Cyber Monday.  So get a good night’s sleep on Thursday night…perfect after eating all of that turkey…and laugh at everybody who is waiting to be trampled by the rush at the midnight sale.  Rest your fingers, get a manicure, and then hit the keyboard for some serious online shopping.

Once you have stocked up on new devices of all kinds (but especially those new Kindles!) you may want to look for some stocking stuffers.  DecalGirl would be happy to help you with that!  Just click on over and shop to your heart’s content!  The best thing about internet shopping is that you can do it on your schedule; websites are always open.  And of course we have prepared for the season with a bunch of great new designs that will put you in the holiday spirit.  Here are just a few of them.  Click on any of the images to take a closer look.

Heidi Dobrott’s rendering of the “jolly old elf” himself is very modern and traditional at the same time.  Heidi hails from Southern California where she lives with her husband and dog.  She is a graduate of UCLA with a degree in design and graphic arts.  She has produced designs that can be seen on everything from paper goods to dinnerware to textiles (and of course, skins!).  “Santa” is only one of several new designs by Heidi offered at DecalGirl for the holiday season.

Kate McRostie, whom we introduced you to a couple of weeks back, likes to work with traditional subjects in a traditional manner.  So if you are a traditional sort of person, you might enjoy Kate’s work such as “Christmas Wonderland” shown here.

We haven’t introduced you to Iveta Abolina yet.  Iveta started drawing as a child by tracing over pictures from books and magazines.  This background has given her a great attention to detail that you can see in all of her work.  Her work has been described as “imaginative, colorful arrangements of abstract floral shapes with intricate detail and vivid colors.”  You can see her attention to detail in her work “Crème de la Crème.”

Our last holiday image is from Digital Blasphemy, aka Ryan Bliss.  Ryan discovered his talent for art when he received his first computer in 1995.  He likes to create desktop wallpapers, and he designs his work to both draw the eye from across the room and stand up to close inspection.  The work shown here is called “Magi.”

Notable Kindle Special Offers

There are a few Kindle Special Offers out there that I thought were a really good deal, especially for Kindle book and accessory purchases.  Writing this makes me really wish I was a Kindle Special Offers owner!  Definitely on my list for the holiday season because I’m up for an upgrade.

Buy $20 worth of Kindle Skins and Save $15

This offer ends July 29, so not much time left.  Kindle Special Offers owners can purchase $20 worth of Kindle skins created by Amazon and save $15.  All of the skins are around $19.99, so basically you buy one, get another for $5.  There are some skins with some cool looking designs on them.  Dress your Kindle up a bit!

Use Visa and Get $10 Amazon Credit

Use a visa card on select Kindle books, and you get $10 in Amazon credit.  This offer ends on August 21.  There are a good number of bestsellers and big name authors such as Sara Gruen, Mary Higgins Clark, Michael Connelly, and Suzanne Collins in the selection.

Save $10 when you spend $20 on Kindle Accessories

If you purchase $20 worth of Amazon’s Kindle accessories, you can get $10 back.  This offer expires August 19.  Looking for a cover or light for your Kindle?  Here’s your chance to save.  Amazon has a cool looking Kindle cover that also includes a light.  It comes in many different colors, and doesn’t suck up the Kindle battery too much.

All of these promotions are restricted to one code per Kindle Special Offers account.  I also noticed that not all KSO owners get the same codes.

In addition to the Kindle related deals, you’ll find offers on camping, beauty products, video games and smartphones.  So, there’s a good variety to choose from.
