positively dani on society 6 + a giveaway!


A little while ago, I started a Society 6 shop, Positively Dani, to showcase some of my illustrations and see some of my creations go from digital to tangible. I also wanted to find a way to bring a bit more positivity to all kinds of products—everything from t-shirts to phone covers to pillows—that don't usually create a positively present mindset. Personally, I've found that the more I'm reminded to stay positive—via positive artwork, inspirational quotes, or motivating attire—the more I'm able to stay in the moment and focus on the good things happening in my life. So I thought, why not try creating some of my own positive, inspiring designs to share with others? 

I've always been a big fan of Society 6 (where you can get amazing designs on so many cool products!) so it seemed like such a great place to start sharing my own work. It was such a great choice because seeing my designs printed in real life was an amazing feeling and the quality of Society 6 products is top notch. It's one thing to see your designs coming to life on a computer screen, but it's even more thrilling to see them printed on actual products. When I received my first Yay for Today iPhone cover in the mail, it completely made my day. In my hand I held something I'd designed! It was so exciting! I wanted to share that exciting feeling with you by offering not one but three giveaways for Positively Dani products. All you need to do for a chance to win is spread the word about the shop! (See details below.)

I hope you'll enjoy checking out the products offered on Positively Dani via Society 6. It's been such a great experience creating them and I'm so excited to be able to share them with you!  



To promote the launch of the Positively Dani shop on Society 6, I'm offering three awesome giveaways (see photos above): Option 1: Yay for Today! Pillow, Option 2: Accept or Change Mini Print, and Option 3: Smile in the Rain Tote Bag. Be sure to note your favorite when you enter to win!
