Giveaway! - Personalized Graphic Plaque

Thanks to my crack-like addiction to pinterest.com, I have been inspired to get crafty. Below are a few projects I've been working on lately. These are graphic plaques... made with my own graphics and a block of wood.







Lea's footprints
Now the fun part... here's the chance for you to win one of these bad boys... with your own quote, baby's footprints, or anything else you'd like to see on a 5 x 7 wooden plaque. It will be completely customized for you. And instead of just opening up this contest for preemie parents, I'm going to include ALL parents.

How to Enter

 Step 1:
"Like" us on facebook or become a follower of our blog. If you've already done this, move on to step 2.

Step 2:
Preemie Parents - Comment with a quote, bible verse or any bit of advice that either helped you get through the NICU experience, or is currently helping you cope.

All Other Parents - Comment with your parenting "mantra," or a saying that you've heard that applies to your parenting style.

PLEASE COMMENT WITH YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS, OR A LINK TO YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT SO THAT I CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU IF YOU WIN. (If you don't want to leave your contact info, just be sure to check back on November 4th to see if you've won.)

ALSO, BE SURE TO MENTION IF YOU ARE A PREEMIE PARENT, SO I CAN DIFFERENTIATE WHEN IT COMES TIME TO CHOOSE A WINNER IN EACH CATEGORY.

Step 3:
I will randomly pick one preemie parent and one non-preemie parent winner. Once your design is finalized and your plaque is produced, I'll ship it to you. Good luck!

WINNERS ANNOUNCED NOVEMBER 4, 2011.

  2. I love this!
    Above the NICU entrance they had this Quote from Dr Seuss:
    "A person's a person no matter how small"
    It has just stuck with me through our experience and more since. Katelyn is becoming her own person and I am so grateful.
    Pick me! :)
    love You Guys!!

  4. "It is in giving that we receive". It is one of the important things that I hope my children learn from me each day. I try to display the love of giving in everyday life. It also applies to my kids. In giving them life I receive their unconditional love.

  5. "March to the beat of your own drum" would be mine.
    One thing I really hope for our son is that he is able to be himself, and be proud of it! I hope Chance marches to the beat of his own drum, and is as unique and quirky as he wants to be, and doesn't just go with the crowd. Love him!!

  7. Preemie mom here! "The days are long but the years are short." It stuck with me through everything. As hard as everything seems, it will be over so fast so you *have* to enjoy your baby. Before you know it, they'll be grown up and you'd wish you'd have just rolled with the punches and taken it day by day, watching them grow.

  8. Unconditional love..every day, all day.

    We were blessed with our little "miracle" baby 2 years ago and every day he teaches us the true meaning of unconditional love. He will soon have a little sister for us to love unconditionally in December. Life is amazing in ways we never thought possible.

    My daughter who was born at 27 weeks weighing 1 pound 1 ounce spent 114 days in the NICU. She is now a happy & healthy 13 month old miracle!

  10. If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell." (Lance Armstrong)
