Giveaway: Hallmark Back-to-School Confidence Pack

Update:  The winner was #5, Meri of The Streiffs.  Congrats!

After Blogher 11 a representative from Hallmark contacted me and asked me to review some items from their new Back to School Checklist.  I got a kit a few days later.

First off were three greeting cards from the Hallmark Kids Collection.  The ones I got were age appropriate for middle, high school, and even college aged kids.  They're sweet and funny all at once.  I'll hold onto them for a while, until my kids are old enough to appreciate them.

The second item was a pack of Lunchbox Notes.  I love sending little notes in my kids' lunches.  I have used pre-printed messages before, but the Hallmark ones have a feature that I especially like-- some of them are customizable.  They allow you to check a box on a list, write a note or draw a picture.  I am super excited for these.

The third item was a Recordable Storybook.  I had fully intended to give this book to my mother-in-law so that she could record it for my kids (after two months of daily grandparent contact I knew they'd be having withdrawals).  But, when I opened the box and saw that it was a copy of Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney I knew I was keeping it.  I gave the same book to Craig as a Christmas gift, the day before we were married, so it has a special place in my heart.  I plan on having Craig record himself reading it and then using it when he goes on business trips.

The book has very clear, easy to follow instructions for recording and the ability to re-record if you aren't happy with your first (or second, or third) attempt.

And, because Hallmark is super awesome and generous, they've given me a Back-to-School Confidence Pack to giveaway to you!  To enter please do the following:

1. Follow my blog and leave a comment telling me that you did so (or that you already do).
2. For a second entry share my giveaway on Facebook or Twitter and leave a comment telling me that you did so.

The winner chosen at random and will be announced on September 2, 2011.  Best of luck.

*The only "compensation" I received for this review was the products themselves.

I already follow you and I agree that those lunch box notes are adorable! In a few years Iris will be ready for little notes of love with her lunch.

Hey! I put notes in my kids' lunch boxes for the 1st day of school. I skipped Lincoln this year since he's in middle school :) Aaron said that's not cool. Love that you'll have Craig record the reading of the book. So sweet!

I follow your blog - of course! I posted your cool giveaway on facebook, and I think it is so sweet that you gave that book to Craig before you got married. How cool to record a voice on a book. I didn't know about those. Will have to check into that for sure.
