Giving away the coolest stuff in the world

August 31, 2011

When my nephew was a little boy, his mother — a creative soul– would send the cutest birthday party invitations. I mean, really cute. Memorably so. Almost as cute as this one. (You can have this one if you want–personalized for your child.)I’ve seen some cute E-vites, but nothing compares to getting something like this in the mail: artsy, clean, contemporary, substantial. And ecologically made. Nice for non-profits and corporations, too.

Thank you notes are a dime a dozen. But pretty, unique thank-you notes are a pleasure to receive. And to write upon. Who wouldn’t want to say thanks with this?

I’m a sucker for love. A total sucker. I love to feel it and send it out. Like on this adorable, heavy-stock card. I’m celebrating love this week, so I had to include it.

Personal stationery makes a statement. This one screams contemporary. But others make different statements. Yes, I know we do not like to write any more. We prefer email, because our fingers tire from holding a pen. But honestly, there’s nothing as special as a handwritten note. Which is why this card-stock personalized stationery is perfect. Fingers won’t get tired in this small, but big enough, enough writing space

Yes, all of these products are available at, a really rockin’ site. But follow my blog and comment here (or yesterday or any + every day until Saturday) and you’re entered into a contest for a $50 gift voucher at Trust me. You want this gift.


You must 1) follow my blog if you don’t already; 2) comment here on the blog, below, to enter (not on FB or Twitter) and 3) you must have a valid email address with your comment (or email it to me privately if you prefer).

You may enter as many times as you want this week by commenting on

blog posts through this Saturday: four more chances to enter! Once a day, please!

This is my very first contest, so please help make it a success!

I must have at least 15 different entries for this giveaway. If not,

I’ll roll them into a future giveaway, which means you’ll already qualify. cards are on high-quality eco-card stock and have modern

colorful designs for every occasion. They plant a tree for every order. I was pretty impressed.

Thanks for entering!
