Here we are! The last day of #CapRoShop giveaways is upon us and I really think I saved one of the best, for last. The “Oh Sh*t” design was one that I threw at Carrie (my amazing designer) and she took it to the MOST amazing places. We will have a few other “Oh Sh*t” designs coming out in the coming months, but for now enjoy this fun, bright & snarky “Oh Sh*t” style!
We’re giving it away on a tote bag, however you can also get this on a mug! As a tote, I think this would be a fun gift for just about anyone, but the original idea was to give it to your bridesmaids and stock it with wedding day “must-haves” as a gift for standing by you on your wedding day. Stock them full of hairspray, shout pens, lipstick, bobby pins, and more – and as the product write-up declares, “a gift that will keep your most important wedding day members from actually uttering, “Oh Sh*t”.”
Day three of giveaways is here! We’re giving away an 11×14 print of our Two Brides design. Hang this beautiful design in your room or put it on your mantle! You could frame this for your guestbook or give it as a gift to engaged friends! We can’t wait to hear what you plan to do with this gorgeousness!
Another day, another giveaway on the blog – this time it’s our Two Grooms design on an 11oz mug! Our bride & groom, brides & grooms designs mix our love of weddings with the DC flag (and consequently our branding) to create a beautiful, modern but fun, design.
Day 1 of giveaways from our brand new online store begins today! We’re giving away our #CapRoLove design pillow (18’x18′) which is gorgeous on its on, but would also make a rad alternative guestbook idea! Have your guests sign the back of the pillow with fabric markers, and keep it in your home after your DC wedding to remember your big day.
All giveaways this week will end on Sunday, November 6th. You can enter by using the rafflecopter widgets on each blog post and there are extra chances to win by tweeting about the giveaways AND signing up for our newsblasts!
Second, there are SO MANY people that made this possible, that I need to thank them here. First, Carrie Radford, for creating these beautiful designs, without much direction or input from me. Second, my IT-savior, Steve, for helping me get the new website up and running & answering all my frantic emails about code & payments (and the list goes on). Third, Kara, for helping me actually get my butt in gear with the site & products, helping me put a marketing plan in place, and helping me to actually cross the finish line to launch. Fourth, my brother for making this AWESOME promo video for the launch. Fifth, Lauren Louise Photography for taking the amazing pictures featured in the video and on the site. Sixth, Alesha for agreeing to model the products alongside Kara (and Sadie). And last (but not least) my husband for the continuous support & encouragement to get this thing actually off the ground.
So now that the thanks are done, I’d like to spend a quick second sharing an amazing, local charity with you: The Homeless Chilren’s Playtime Project ~ an amazing service founded in Washington, DC, built on the idea that every child deserves the right to succeed. Their mission is to nurture healthy child development and reduct the effects of trauma among children living in temporary housing programs in Washington, DC. They seek to create a city that provides every opportunity for children in homeless families so that they can succeed by ensuring playing and learning, support services, and the advocation of affordable housing & safe shelter. 0% of all proceeds from items purchased with our #CapRoLove design, will be donated to this wonderful program. It’s a small way for me to use my brand & new online store, to give back to the people of the city I live in, and spread the love to those that need it.
All week on the blog we will be celebrating the launch with giveaways of some of our new products! So be sure to come back each day this week for a chance to win something new. And if you just can’t wait to find out if you’ve won, or you’ve already started thinking about holiday gift giving, or you really just want to spread the love with a #CapRoLove tank, well then:
