Build-A-Sign Reivew & Giveaway!

Many of you probably already know that our girls were born premature at 29 weeks. They spent 48 days in the NICU and Lilah spent months after that on oxygen & monitors. Their start in life wasn't all rosy & birds chirping. But they are fighters & true miracles because of it.

Last year we participated in our first ever March of Dimes: March for Babies walk & raised over $200 towards the fight for preemies. This year we've set our goal at $500 and will be marching in May again in honor of Lilah & Lexie. Last year we had some homemade signs & t-shirts to celebrate the cause but this year we have this:

A great company,, recently contacted me in regards to reviewing their product & offered to sponsor a giveaway on Life as we know it with Two Twinkies & a Tater Tot in return. As I sat exploring their site and the great things they offer from banners to magnetic signs to bumper stickers I tried to decide two things: 1) the perfect item to give away for my great readers and 2) a product to review that I could use & appreciate.

With the upcoming March of Dimes walk I knew right away a banner would be a perfect addition to our walk and something we could use year after year after year as we continue to participate! Designing it was incredibly simple thanks to the wide variety of colors, fonts, and clip art available on The step-by-step process is easy to follow & leaves you with a feeling of great accomplishment when you get a glimpse at what you've just created.

The banner more than met my expectations when it arrived however. It is huge & durable! Measuring 3 ft by 6 ft and made of thick vinyl it is something that will stand the test of time! I honestly cannot wait to march this year while proudly holding our sign and imagine the day when the girls will be big enough to hold it themselves in the walk!

This must leave you wondering about the great giveaway! Not only did I receive that amazing banner but 30 of these beauties! I designed the bumper stickers the same way I designed the banner but in this case was trying to make something perfect for my readers. What better than something that displays the love we have for our little hobby?!

{You know you want one!}

29 of these {I ♥ blogging} bumper stickers are up for grabs (yes, I'm keeping one for myself!) I'm pretty sure you'll just have to simply leave a comment seeing as I'm new to the whole giveaway thing and the turnout for each one of I've done thus far has not been more than 29. However, if for some reason I do get more than 29 entries I will use the generator to pick the lucky winners.

The giveaway will be open until Saturday, February 26th at 8pm, and is open to readers in the US & Canada. Please leave your email address in the comment so I am able to reach you once the drawing is closed!

I seriously do ♥ blogging. Do you?

CSN Stores Giveaway!

As I mentioned before the New Year, my goal for 2011 is to grow my blog.

Before the holidays I was able to feature my first (and second!) review & giveaway for my loyal readers and really enjoyed doing so. Not only did I love getting something free (& creative) for myself but being able to offer you, my readers, something for joining me here day by day was a great feeling as well!

I've been quite busy since the holidays and returning back the daily grind of being a working mom and really haven't had any time to work on growing my blog. Lucky for me (& you), this past week I was contacted by not one, but two, fabulous businesses with such opportunities!
