I have been blessed that since starting this blog, companies will sometimes contact me offering me a product or service to try. If I like the product and I feel like it fits within the confines of things that I blog about, I will share my thoughts here. Oftentimes I will have the opportunity to bless one (or several) of you with a giveaway too. I love doing giveaways because it is a way for me to give back to YOU – the kind readers that come back here and have created such a sweet community. So, I am going to try to start doing my review/giveaway posts on Thursdays. These posts will be called Giveaway Thursday.
If reading a review/entering a giveaway is not your thing, then just ignore these posts. I won’t mind. (Of course, this won’t stop me from occasionally talking about other stuff that I love on other days, but you can count on Thursdays being giveaway days. Sound good?)
On to today’s giveaway…
Elias’s first birthday party is one month from today! When I blogged about planning Elias’s party, sweet Danielle (aka “The Design Girl”) contacted me and offered to design Elias’s invitations. And wow, did she do a great job. Check it out.
This design is a custom design because I bought the dragon graphic online (the theme is going to be built around that character and the blue, orange and green colors).
What I love about Danielle is that she is so easy to work with and so darn talented. With me working in marketing, I can be a bit particular about how things look, but she totally just goes with the flow.
In addition to being a fabulous blog designer, she has expanded her services to stationery and print design. For the inaugural Giveaway Thursday she is graciously offering a $25 credit on any print design. (Her stationery line is $25- for more pricing info click here) I love the children’s line!
The folks at PrintPlace offered to print the invitations for me, and I am so excited to see how they turned out. They should be arriving today – they got them done and shipped to me in less than a week, which is crazy fast. So, if you need a small print run and/or something done fast, check them out! You can also follow them on Twitter.
Several of you recommended going with an independent designer and an online printer, and I am so glad I did. It relieved a lot of stress for me.
I am hoping to get everything addressed and mailed by Saturday. Then I can turn my attention to the other details. I know it is going to be here before I know it!
Leave a comment about what type of stationery you would have Danielle design for you and I will select a winner Friday morning!
