Giveaway : Pinhole Press

 Ella Age 9

Liam Age 2

Luke Age 6

Kids + scribbling kind of go hand in hand.  Hopefully the scribbling goes onto paper and not your walls.  One time, Ella drew all over the wallpapered walls at the Ritz Carlton with crayons (and no they were not the washable kind).  It was a site to see (and in case you are wondering, we got most of it off….with toothpaste! thank you very much Google).  Do you have any funny stories like this?

Usually, if you give kids a place to draw (and you watch them closely) than the wall isn’t even appealing.  I’m totally in love with these personalized Scribble Pads from Pinhole Press, for scribbling, drawing and painting.  And my kids think they are pretty great too.  They love seeing their picture on the cover and they love the size of the notepad (more room for imagination to materialize, yes?!).

So what do you think?  Aren’t these a fun idea? When I saw these  giant pads with a customizable cover I knew they would be perfect for us.  I love them so much that they are likely going to become a gift giving staple for us.

Now here is something really fun:

Pinhole Press has so kindly offered one of our readers a $50 gift card to use towards 2 Scribble Pads or the product of your choice.

To enter simply head over to Pinhole Press  + then leave me a comment letting me know your favorite Mothers Day Gift.

Giveaway will end Tuesday, April 24th and a winner will be chosen at random.  Contest open to US, Canada + UK only.

GOOD LUCK!

P.S. My favorite ideas for Mother’s Day are the Photo Diary/Journals.  I love the idea of making a personalized family recipe book.  How special would that be? And, I also adore, the Photo Magnets for something fun.

    First, I’m loving the pictures of your kids! Especially little Liam’s. You’ve got a great eye for photo opportunities.

    Second. Arden (fortunately!) never got into coloring on walls. Ryker, however.. our stairwell, kitchen, and family room currently have masterpieces that I’ve not been able to get off. I’m going to try toothpaste!

    Would love these for the kids. I also tweeted this.

    Um.. sorry. My favorite Mother’s Day gift.. I got a pair of earrings from Tiffany’s that are my very favorite and a constant companion. But last years’ gift was very close.. he called one of my best friends to get her schedule and set up time for us to get mani/pedi’s. In my Mother’s Day card I received a note with the appointment times and a gift card to cover both of our treatments, and a Starbucks gift card so we could chat it up after our appointment. My guy knows how much this stay at home mom loves time with her friends, but doesn’t get enough of it!

    well, I don’t have babies (yet) but I do have a mom and I’m definitely thinking one of those journals would be a perfect gift for her! Also – I’m kind of a kid at heart – and my inner child is totally dying for those awesome scribble pads! Your kids are the cutest. xo

    My favorite mothers day gift to give is a card! There is nothing more special and beautiful that I can give my mother and my grandmother than a heartfelt card that captures the words I am unable to convey so easily. There is nothing else they need… And it means more to them than anything.

    Every Mother’s Day weekend my husband and my kids plant our garden for me as a Mother’s Day gift. I help plan and pick out the veggies, and when they’re sowing the seeds in the garden I work on my flower planters for the deck.
