While I was at BlogHer, one of the parties I attended was the Social Luxe Lounge, sponsored by Avery. This was such a great party for so many reasons, but one that particularly stood out were the personal touches throughout the evening and even before the event.
One such thing was that prior to the weekend the attendees received a code for Zazzle.com to create our own custom Binder! It could be anything really. From recipes to taxes to schoolwork, you name it. I decided that since Oscar has just started coloring and being interested in crafts, I would make him a keepsake binder. That way when we want to save something, it can be protected in the binder and we can look back at it whenever we want!
I was really excited about my idea and wanted to play around a bit with photoshop, so I took a picture of him coloring and turned it into a little cartoon sketch for the cover. I added the title to the spine and chose a coordinating color for the back. I love the way it turned out! Honestly, I wasn’t sure what the quality would be like, but it is excellent quality. I love our binder and I can’t wait to fill it with all of Oscar’s artwork.
But there is more!
I arrived at the party and didn’t see my binder among the other fabulous creations. Moments later, the Avery rep approached me to let me know that he knew the one I had made and that it was sadly in a box on it’s way to California (instead of with him in NYC). He said they would ship it to me and I was fine with that. One less thing to pack!
THEN he gave me two cards with codes to make another FREE binder! Because that was really above and beyond and I already have one, I have decided pay it forward! I was so thrilled with the people from Avery both before and after the party that I hope you will check out this cool program on Zazzle.
I will be choosing two (2) winners using Random.org to win a free custom binder with free shipping! ($25 value each)
