Double Exposure! The American Dream!

As I started to think about what I wanted to do as a tribute to our country on September 11th I tried to visualize the feeling on that day.  Of shock and of fear.  I then started to think about how our country recovered and became stronger and more united.  This reminded me of the AMERICAN DREAM and having the freedom to control your destiny.  I then decided that I wanted to find a way to support all of my fellow AMERICANS that live their dreams through their work.  I tell my class everyday that I am living my DREAM of being a teacher with them.  So this week I am going to support small businesses or anyone with an American DREAM!   Read How below...I am so excited!

Now I don't know about y'all but I love anything handmade and I always support local businesses in my community!  This weekend, I spent some time over on ETSY and also visited some small businesses through a local festival.  I was amazed at all of the talented people out there so I decided to try a different type of Give Away. I wanted to give something away that would support our citizens even if it is in the tiniest of ways. 

So I am giving away Advertising on The Schroeder Page!
Starting today September 11th~September 16th I will choose one RANDOM Winner!   

If you have an ETSY shop or a small business and you have been wanting to grow your business- I am giving away 3 months of advertising on my blog and website!  With this Give Away you will receive a small ad 150X150 on  The Schroeder Page.  A $15 Dollar value! Check out the information below!

You will also be added to my rolling scroll bar on my website at!

It is my hope for those of you with an American Dream Business to take this opportunity to become a follower of The Schroeder Page and support my new DREAM.  
Please like my Facebook Page and Follow my YouTube Channel.  
After that please post a comment below and leave your business name and web address.  Be sure to pass the word on to your friends! 
Think of it as a bit of free advertising for just joining up! 
I am so excited about spending my Sunday Night checking out my Fellow American's Dreams!
God Bless Our Country and YOU!

  5. I LUV this contest!! I LUV your focus on the American dream!!! Brilliant!!! As a 'self-published' author, I feel like I'm truly living the American dream. Traveling to schools where I get invited and sharing my projects.

    It's tough being all the departments: creative, sales & marketing but I LUV when teachers 'find' me and get thrilled about my work. Now to figure out how to get my work to more teachers.
