500 + a giveway

After nearly 3 1/2 years, I've hit my 500th blog post!

In celebration of that and my little shop opening, I'd like to giveaway a copy of my first memory book : 20 Questions : A Birthday Interview Album for Kids.
If you missed yesterday's post, this is how you use it :
 
Every year, on or around your child's birthday, you ask the same 20 questions listed within the pages of the album and fill in their answers. Questions like : What is your favorite color? What is your favorite song? Slip in an 8" x 8" photo of the child, perhaps from their birthday, on the opposite page. Easy, right? Repeat next year and for the next 8 years. 10 years in all.

Think of how fun it will be to look through this memory album in your child's teenage and young adult years! See how much they changed from year to year. When it's full, keep it for yourself, or give it to the interviewee.

This album was designed to be a fun way to record and remember simple memories from the childhood of your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, godchildren, or any little one in your life. It is gender-neutral with little bits of bright color that will complement the photos from their birthday celebrations now, and for years to come.

Comments are now closed. To be entered into this giveaway, please leave a comment below. If you are reading from a feed reader, please click over here. Tell me who you would share this album with. One of your (present or future) children? Grandchildren? A niece or nephew? A foster child or Godchild? I'm looking forward to reading your responses.

Just like in the shop, the winner will get to choose whatever range of 10 years they want. The standard album begins with the 3rd birthday through the 12th birthday, but you can start at any age!

Comments will be closed on Monday, November 14th at 8pm EST and I will post who the winner is on Tuesday morning. Feel free to share this giveaway with friends and family members that might enjoy capturing fun memories from the childhood of a little one that is close to them.

Happy Veterans Day! Have a wonderful weekend!

  23. I love this idea. What a great way to make a snapshot of a child's mind to compare each year as she grows. I would share this with my just-turned-4 years old daughter. Then start another in a few years with her baby sister.
