Anniversary Week Giveaway #1: Michaelangela

Welcome to the Kingston Castle Anniversary Week!! I'm ridiculously excited about this week. Not only is our anniversary on Saturday, but so is Dan's birthday. And I love birthdays. A lot. I haven't quite figured out what to get him yet, but we're planning on a BBQ at his parents' house with family, friends, food, and anniversary cake. Sweet!

Anyway, on to the giveaway. When I got married 360 days ago, I just had to have an awesome bride hoodie. I didn't want to go too overboard with it, and wanted something I could wear after the wedding. I found Michaelangela on Etsy and worked with her to create my awesome monogram hoodie, as seen here:

She was an absolutely joy to work with. She didn't currently have a design like my hoodie, but was more than willing to show me samples of fonts and colors and ideas and we nailed down exactly what I was thinking in my head.

I'm absolutely honored that she is willing to sponsor a giveaway on my blog! One lucky winner will receive a $30 gift card to use in her shop. Since I was a bride, she's expanded her inventory and now does custom embroidered monogramming on everything from shirts and totes bags, to robes and slippers, to cosmetic cases, to sweet wedding essentials like hankies, dress tags, and bouquet ribbons. Here are a few pics of her stuff:

Even if you're not a bride to be, there's something in her shop for everyone. This would be a great gift idea for someone, as well.

So here's the deal for how to win (one comment with multiple entries per person is fine):

  • Go to Michaelangela's shop and come back and leave a comment telling me what you would use your gift card for. (1 entry)
  • Become a new follower here or on Twitter (button up at the top right), or let me know that you already follow me (2 entries each)
  • Blog about this giveaway and leave a link in the comments (3 entries)

I'll draw a random winner about this time next Monday morning, October 18th. Good luck!!

I think I would get some slippers or a tote bag. I already follow you here and on twitter. Congrats on your anniversary.

What a great giveaway. Her stuff is hard to choose what I would use the gift certificate on. Hopefully, I'll soon be in need of things like a bridal bouquet ribbon and a wedding hankie. I also desperately need a bathrobe, so I might use it on one of those.

I'm a follower here and I will be posting about this tomorrow...I'll drop by and leave the link.

I would get the monogrammed hankie for my wedding. That would be such a nice keepsake too!

I now follow you on here. :)

I would give the gift certificate to Megan to use for her wedding. I read your blog regularly and love reading everyone's comments but I don't always comment. Love you Brooke- mom
