:: sponsor welcome ::

October 10, 2009

Please welcome my newest sponsor… Playing Grown Up.

Playing Grown Up is a funky little shop run by a fun-loving, crafty gal named Brooke. You know how much I love chalkboards and was excited when I had another fellow chalkboard lover want to help and support Cakies. Brooke makes a ton of funky chalkboards perfect for your kitchen, nursery, office or any other place you may want to put a chalkboard (I think this one would look especially cute over a little kiddos bed). Trust me, if Ben would allow it, I would have one in every room! They are just too much fun to draw on.

Also, just for Cakies readers Brooke is kind enough to giveaway one of her chalkboards (there are a lot of to choose from) or you could even request a custom one. How awesome is that? All you need to do is leave a comment with the following information (Unfortunately, due to the size and weight of this item, playing grown up does not currently ship internationally, but there will be a giveaway next week that will!):
1. Tell me which chalkboard you would love from her shop or your custom design idea.
2. Tell me the name of her equally fun-loving other half.
The giveaway will end at 8am PST on Wednesday, October 14th and the winner will be announced on this post on Thursday. Good luck!!! Thanks so much Playing Grown Up!!!
The winner is… imanifolkes!!!
Thank you everyone for participating!!! I promise to have another grand sponsor giveaway this weekend. Imanifolkes, email me with your address and I will pass it along to playing grown up!

    Brooke and Grant look like a sweet couple! I love the Garden Party chalkboard!

  • Sara says:

    Such a great giveaway. Grant is her husband's name and I would love the Rockstar Boy chalkboard…so cute! πŸ™‚

  • sabje says:

    there all so cute. i think i love the garden party one the most.
    his name is Grant

  • I really like the garden party one too, but I think a cool custom one would be bright colored button motif maybe with a few spool of thread too! He hubby's name is Grant! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • hey rubs,
    just wanted to try one of these giveaways! i like the little prince one. . wish there was a princess one, though, for the new babies info! her special man is grant. thanks!

    Welcome Playing Grown Up!!!

    I like the garden party chalkboard the best, and her hubby's name is Grant :O) And I really did find that on one of her blog posts, not by reading the comments left by others!

    Love, Susan

  • Whitney Lane says:

    Such fun chalkboards!!! I love the “What's for Dinner” chalkboard – adorable! Great color choices, too. πŸ™‚

  • Alena Jo says:

    I love it! Their blog and etsy shop are both so fun!

    Her husband's name is Grant… just like mine!

    If I were to get a chalkboard from her etsy shop it would be so hard to choose. I think I might lean towards the “customizable letters chalkboard” or the “homework chalkboard”. What fun stuff!

    I'm loving the What's for Dinner chalkboard, too cute. Of course, a custom UA Roll Tide board would be great as well!!

    Oh my gosh! I love chalkboards so much that at the PCC flea market I was lucky enough to find a huge metal frame that was then turned into a huge kitchen board. Unfortunately I have not been so lucky to find one for my room but that would change if I could win the QUOTABLE chalkboard. It is so freaking fantastic, better yet COOL! I absolutely love it and her other adorably cute fun loving half is none other than…. GRANT.
    Fingers crossed!!!
