One of my lesser known obsessions is stationary. I know, it seems weird, but just love getting little thank you cards or cute pieces of writing paper with my name on it. Maybe it’s because I love my married name. Maybe it’s because I love to write notes of any kind. Maybe it’s because I enjoy the little things in life like rough edges on pretty colored paper. I don’t know why. Don’t judge me.
The only thing about my obsession is that it can be very expensive. It’s one of those luxuries that you love but dread paying for. Now, for one Christmas, a dear sweet friend of mine, someone I call my second Mother-In-Law(she’s the cutest woman and loves DH and I like we are her own kids), purchased some stationary for me from American Stationary. It was the first Christmas that I was Mrs. Paul Bunyan, so I was so excited to see my married name on well crafted paper and beautiful envelopes.I immediately asked her to tell me where she ordered them from. After using up all of my stationary and staring at their site for over an hour, I was so impressed that I ended up using them for the announcement of our sweet baby boy’s arrival, and do plan on using them for any upcoming *ahem* announcements we may make in the future.
Now, because of my love for American Stationary, and because I showed them how much of a geek I am for their products, they are allowing me to give one lucky reader 50 dollars to spend on their site! How cool is that?!
Now, to get started on your gifts for the Holidays, you can order stationary for a newlywed couple you know, or maybe order a memo set for a new college student. Hey, you can just hoard the gift card and get YOURSELF something nice. It’s your prerogative, baby!
There are 3 ways to enter:
1. Go to American Stationary and tell me which item tickles your fancy the most. Is it the ink stampers? The organic items? The embroidered guest towels? I’m dying to know.
2. Go back through my Christmas In July mini-series and let me know one tip that you plan on taking advantage of the rest of the year. The English teacher in me wants to see if you learned at least one thing while reading. Post it as a whole other comment separate from the comment about your favorite American Stationary item(it will be easier for me to track your entries this way).
3. Now, because I haven’t done a giveaway in a while, and because I love you all, and because American Stationary rocks, I’m going to let you all enter once DAILY! So, come back to the blog everyday and re-enter(a link to the giveaway will be at the top right). Just type “another entry” or “day (whatever) entry” and you get another chance to win.
Please make sure to leave your (junk) e-mail WITH EACH ENTRY! If you are on blogger, you don’t have to worry about it. I can get your e-mail through your screen name. Please don’t forget this. I would hate to have to pick another winner because you didn’t leave your e-mail.
The contest will end next Thursday, July 16th, at 11:59pm EST.
