Hallmark Giveaway

My friend, Allison, scored me an invitation to Hallmark's Moments and Milestone's tour. Isn't it great when someone lets you ride their coattails? Yeah, she's kind like that!

Hallmark treated us to breakfast at the Mansion at Judge's Hill and gave us a little insight to their amazing world of creating.

I chuckled to myself when we walked in and this is what was waiting for us on our tables...
Ummm, have you ever seen a Hallmark commercial and/or movie that didn't require a box of tissues? Let's just say, the nice people at Hallmark are well aware of this fact!

Before the event, they asked us to send in thoughts on motherhood. They created this sweet little video to show us how they work their magic and turn simple sayings into Hallmark goodness.

Would it be totally wrong for me to claim I'm a Hallmark contributor now? I mean, they used my quote...I've got leverage, right? So kidding...please don't sue me Hallmark!

They shared a few writing exercises with us and even let us try our hands at it. Can you say intimidating?

So here's how it went down...
"Look at these pictures and write something funny. Noooow, go!"

Five minutes later, I'm still staring at a blank index card! Not really, but trying to think of something on the spot was really, really hard. I felt a little out of my realm to say the least, but it sure did make me appreciate the Hallmark team members' creativity even more.

Okay, enough about me and my experience, now for the good stuff!

Hallmark has generously offered to let me hook one of you up with a few of their hottest commodities!

Take a peek at the goods...
Mom & Me is a recordable book. You ask the questions then record your child's sweet little voice as they answer. What a great keepsake!


Christopher is an interactive story buddy. This soft and snuggly teddy bear actually reads the book with your child! Click here to see him in action. So cute.
