Portland, OR — Wedding season is here and being recently engaged, I’ve been staring blankly at the seemingly endless list of tasks I need to get done before the big day. Also, as many of you likely know, Oregon lifted it’s ban on gay marriage this week and it is now legal for same-sex couples to tie the knot in this beautiful state! Now they can legally clamp on their ball-and-chain like the rest of us! haha
Whether or not you’re pro gay-marriage, I think we can all admit weddings are both exciting and stressful. I have found that the hardest part to planning a wedding is knowing where the hell to start. We’ve [kind of] started our guest list, researched venues, and have been utilizing Pinterest for decor, favor ideas, cakes, and dresses. If you don’t know where to start either, start here! Lucky for you, I’m teaming up with three other companies in the hopes that we can assist other couples in getting started on their wedding day planning.
I’m teaming up with my friend Shannon Stoner (who is also getting married soon), as well as my peeps at Crooked Brook and The Mohawk Valley Trading Company for this special Wedding Themed Giveaway. This package would be an amazing gift for a newly engaged couple looking for ideas for wedding favors and wedding decor. If you are soon to be married or know someone who is, READ ON! 😀
This epic giveaway package includes:
Crooked Brook DTG Printed T-Shirts &
Personalized Embroidered Fleece Blanket
I don’t know about all the other couples out there, but I love cuddling under a soft fleece blanket. Crooked Brook’s fleece throws are the perfect size and thickness, plus their ability to personalize them with high quality embroidery makes them an excellent gift for either the bride and groom, or maybe a favor for each of your guests. Snuggling under the fleece blanket wearing “Bride” and “Groom” t-shirts, now that’s perfect.
-One, in any stock color, 50” x 60”, 100% polyester Personalized Wedding Fleece Blanket (winner can pick one of the two stock designs shown)…$23.00
-Two, pink or white, Gildan, G200 6.1 oz. Ultra Cotton® T-Shirts made in 100% preshrunk cotton, with the words “Bride” or “Groom” printed on the center front chest… $34.00
About Crooked Brook Fleece Blankets and Fleece Throws:
Fleece blankets (also called fleece throws) are made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or other synthetic fibers and can also be made out of recycled PET bottles or recycled fleece. They are lightweight, warm, soft, and hydrophobic; holding less than 1% of their weight in water which allows them to retain much of their insulating powers even when wet.
Fleece blankets are machine washable, dry quickly, are very breathable and will not lose their thickness when compressed; it does not matter if you crush, pull, twist or wad up the blanket it will come back to its original shape and thickness.
About Crooked Brook DTG Printing and Personalized T-Shirts:
Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct To Garment Printing (DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens that are needed for screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color.
In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.

Beeswax is one of the oldest sources of artificial light and today is still the most natural candle material. The lovely fresh scent, a long burn time and the natural origins of beeswax make it the preferred candle for many types of people from the Catholic Church to environmentalists.
About Mohawk Valley Trading Company Raw Honey:

About The Kerrminator’s Felted Soap:
Felted soap is bar soap that has been wrapped in wool roving, most often sheep wool or alpaca wool, and wet felted. Sometimes the felted bar soap is decorated with contrasting colors by wrapping wool yarn or strands of wool fiber over top of the base color, or by needle felting.
About The Kerrminator’s Custom Portraits:
Many of my illustrated portraits are drawn from photos; I do not use computer programs to manipulate images and fancy printers to create the illusion of a hand painted or drawn portrait. I offer portraiture in a wide variety of media including charcoal, colored pencil, graphite, oil pastel, soft pastel, colored charcoal, oil paint and acrylic paint as well as mixed media. The winner will provide me with the reference photo they would like me to use and I’ll recreate it in a style and medium I see fit.
