CafePress Giveaway!

CONTEST CLOSED : Winner #14 Hayley Says

Congratulations Hayley.  Good luck deciding on a keepsake box.  Check your email later today for details! 

OK, I admit it.  I’m one  of the sentimental schmucks that thinks the card that comes with the gift is more just as important as the gift itself.  I still have things like ticket stubs and boarding passes from the early Krista and Craig dating years.  I will save one earring after I lose the other if it was a gift from someone special.  I keep drawings that little kids made for me because the thought of throwing them away makes me sad. 

I have a keepsake box that a friend gave me for a bridal shower and it’s been doing double duty holding all of my sentimental stuff along with things that I’ve started to save for C.  Her hospital bracelet, the hat she wore at the hospital, a necklace she received for her Christening, her birth announcement and more.  I’ve thought of putting these things in a shoe box, but well, that’s not very cute. 

So.  A few weeks ago I got an email from the awesome folks at CafePress asking if I was interested in doing a giveaway.  “I see you like to shop (hmm… I thought it was a better kept secret) so maybe a t-shirt” the email said.  After I got over my shock of “OMG a company wants ME to do a giveaway?!?” I spent a few hours on their website.  Yeah, you read that right.  HOURS. ON THEIR WEBSITE.  Looking at the personalized gifts at CafePress for a variety of interests, topics and brands.  I hate to even try to list them all because I’ll miss something but they have t-shirts, mugs, sweatshirts, onsies, calendars, and more.  When I found the keepsake boxes, I was hooked.  It was exactly what I’d been looking for.  Then, I spent another hour looking through all the boxes I could choose from.  One even said “future shoe shopper!” 

Finally I settled on this one.  (Just in case, C doesn’t grow up with my shopping gene – which is highly unlikely.

It’s the perfect combination of pink and brown and just too cute. And it is perfect for her hospital bracelet, birth announcement, hat and itty bitty baby jewelry.  But the best news, is that you can have your very own, because CafePress is giving one away right here!
