Pillow letters and other personalized things

I love personalized items - which is likely why I'm obsessed with my Thirty-One business :) But I also have kids with not so common names, so books that can be personalized are great too (visit Champion Me Books giveaway to see more :)

I'm getting the hang of making these letters and am sending two off to two lucky winners. Both to celebrate a fellow blogger's daughter's first birthday and another to a winner of ANOTHER birthday bash :)

Alena is off to California for surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I was able to meet up with Alena and her family briefly before they headed out and Alena in her own way thanked me for her pillow. Visit Alena's page to keep updated on her journey.

In the mean time, enjoy the giveaways and keep finding ways to save on products YOU need!
