giveaway: monogrammed magnets

*this giveaway is now closed*

So, the promised-post is here and comes with a special surprise... the zesty baker's first ever giveaway!

For their anniversary, I made my sister and her husband monogrammed magnets. I also decorated cookies for them, but Ford and I ate them before we had a chance to take them over... oops. Yet another reason why I should not do anything food-related. I need to make things that I can't devour. Sometimes I can't resist spending a little time with my Kitchen Aid though... :)

You can't quite tell from the pictures, but they have a glass-like feel to them (it is not decoupage... there is a glass-like layer on top).  I kind of got a picture of this by taking a picture of an unfinished magnet...

I thought they turned out pretty cute. Then again, I'm a sucker for anything with my initials on it.

To win a set of 4 monogrammed magnets, please do the following:
  1. Post a comment to the bottom of this blog letting me know what your favorite post on the blog has been so far. Also, be sure to include your monogram (First, Last, Middle)... or the monogram you would want on the magnets, the font style you like, and the color paper you would like used.
  2. Share this giveaway post on your facebook, blog, or twitter. 
  3. Make sure you include your email in your comment so that I am able to contact you if you win!
A winner will be chosen on Monday, April 25 at 5:00pm and will be posted here on the blog.

  11. Honestly I LOVE all of your post and get great ideas from all of them! My favorite must be the post from the past projects, I especially love the corkboards and how you're bringing caboodles back and pretty much anything that you do with scripture on it! I can't wait until I either a) get engaged/married or b) get a house of my own (whichever comes first) so I can do all of these fun things to spruce up the place a bit! You are so stinkin cute and crafty!

  12. Isaiah 40:8 is my favorite post so far. I love 3 things: 1)you talked about your nana who would have been 100 years old and all the things she taught you and your sister to do 2)you were painting your mom a picture..which is the sweetest thing ever 3) I love that verse and it was such a beautiful touch to add to the painting.
