Aaryn West Gift Wrap Giveaway!

aaryn-west-gift-wrap-giveaway-1

It is with great excitement that we announce our joining forces with Spoonflower in order to offer a growing selection of designs available for sale as fabric, gift wrap, and wallpaper. If you’re not already familiar with Spoonflower, you should check out their craft-inducing menu of products which are all produced and shipped from Durham, North Carolina. We have been huge fans of their high quality wrapping paper since last year – this is definitely NOT the crap you buy at the local pharmacy that rips like crazy when you try to drag scissors across a large area. No way. This is some beautifully printed, heavy duty paper. It’s so forgiving that should you find the need to reposition a piece of tape in the middle of wrapping a gift, it doesn’t even remove the ink from the print or tear the paper! In other words, it’s good stuff.

In an effort to get the word out about these great new products we are giving away three rolls of gift wrap to lucky winners, chosen at random, across three different platforms – one winner on the blog, one on Instagram, and one on Facebook. This means you have a total of three opportunities to enter the giveaway, enhancing your chances to up your gift giving game with some awesome Aaryn West wrapping paper. The drawing ends Friday, November 28th at 9pm PST. And entering couldn’t be easier – keep reading below for instructions on how get in on the action.

Personalize It

I love the internet for its global participation, the chance to laugh, discuss and share things with people all over the world.  I also know the little gasp of recognition when seeing something representative of your own home town or identity.  I fondly remember the little personalized name labels that were sewn onto school clothing and personalized greeting cards. Personalized bedroom door signs have been around for some time, too.  More recently, large letters have adorned the walls and dressers of styled rooms.  Coca-Cola Australia recently launched personalized bottles and cans via Facebook, using its researched 150 most popular names.  Aaryn and I missed out!  I’d be outraged if I actually drank the product.

A current interior design trend I’m loving is typography; fabric printed with names, geographical and personal. British Route Sign Designs uses British bus routes as its inspiration for fabrics (but the company is based in Oregon!).  The fabric can be sold individually or already wonderfully applied to furniture and pillows. You can also have your own fabric personalized at Spoonflower. The site gives a welcome ‘how to’ guide on how to get your fabric produced from concept to preview to completion.  And here is one blogger’s guide to how she created fabric with her baby daughter’s name using Spoonflower.
