sponsor intro + giveaway!

lifelovepaper giveaway
Happy Monday, today's giveaway is sponsored by LifelovePaper Photography. Tina Aszmus is the photographer behind the lens of LifelovePaper and her creative eye is just magical. She has offered the above canvas flat of a polaroid for today's giveaway. The canvas can sit on a shelf or it can be hung. The texture of the canvas is really cool. She will also be putting some up in her shop as books using these canvases as covers. Tina was kind enough to answer a few questions, hope you enjoy getting to know this artist better! Please leave a comment and a winner will be posted tomorrow. If you love what you see please tell her I sent ya! ;)

What is your favorite part about being a photographer?
The creative release and instant gratification.


Who was your celebrity crush as a child?
Corry Haim post Lost Boys. Then it was all down hill from there.


I love your creative eye for simple beauty in your photos, how do you decide on what to photograph?
I definitly lean more towards still life. I like playing around with compositions and light. I love growing and arranging flowers. It's the first thing I look at when thumbing through decor magazines. Admittedly I work a typical, non-creative office job and as creative as I am or love to be, I have to surround myself with pretty things when I'm outside of work. As soon as I leave the office, I take out my camera and snap a few shots, then it sort of balloons from there. I take a photo of something around me everyday.


What are three things you could not live without?
coffee, polaroid film and undereye concealer.

  15. I think that is one of the main reasons why I love Tina and her work!! She is like me and has to work an office job...but, have to find our creativity outside of our "caged jobs" lol
    Please, dahling, put my name in the hat for that drawing!
