I told you that this week was going to be a good one! I have some exciting news this morning. We will be having our first ever give-away on Capitol Romance thanks to today’s rockstar local vendor, Deda Notions!

Deda Notions is an awesome local find, located right here in our Nation’s capital.  What is Deda Notions you ask? Well let me tell you

Notion: \ˈnō-shən\ – an idea, a whim, a dream, a small useful thing.

Deborah (aka Deb or just Deda) began making handmade cold process soaps in 2002. It has since taken over her life, and she now runs a flourishing Etsy shop (that also features awesome scrubs, lotions, and lip balm!) and and she also manages an AWESOME blog.

Deda’s shop features fantastic options for wedding gifts or favors. Your bridesmaids would adore handmade artisan luxury items from Deda Notions or you could even purchase these as favors for your bridal shower, gifts for your mother (or future mother in law), and the list goes on!

Now, for the exciting news – Deb has graciously offered to give away a $50 gift certificate to her Etsy shop! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post (*please leave your email, so we can notify you if you have won*) and we will draw a comment at random on Friday for the winner!

BUT WAIT, there’s more! Want to up your chances of winning ?? If you become a fan of Capitol Romance on Facebook & leave a comment on our giveaway post – your name will be entered twice!

So spread the word to any newly engaged couples in the area and get commenting :)
