The Small Stakes

If we had our own house and I had a room where I could put all my music/concert memorabilia, I'd totally want this poster to put in there. Not because I love The Walkmen or anything, I just love the artwork! It's by a company called The Small Stakes and their artwork for concert promotion is so original, I love it! I'm thinking an entertainment room is in order with a pool table, mini fridge, big old flat screen tv and one of those cool U-shaped couches. I also like this She & Him poster.

Ok, I was looking around and found another cool one. Death Cab Hurricane Katrina benefit concert poster.

First Giveaway: Peek!

I'm so excited... it's my first giveaway! Not anything big, just a few really cute buttons.

On Saturday we made our way out to Roseville to visit a few stores that we don't have close to us. One of the said stores we randomly happened to go into was Peek... Aren't You Curious, a children's store (because I can't pass a new kids store and not go in!). I hadn't ever been in one and didn't even realize that I'd already heard of this store on a Design Mom blog post until I saw the Battleship shirt that I'd had my eye on online.

Anyway, we ended up getting Christopher 2 shirts and I grabbed a few buttons on the way out. And Christopher had a blast playing in the store! They had these little bikes that he rode around on and then he got to pick out a bouncy ball and lollipop. That is awesome marketing, to have fun stuff for the kids to play with while mom shops (they also had granola bars and little toy animals the kids could have). Plus the 2 girls working were super nice and played with Christopher while we were in there.

So if you'd like to win 4 Peek buttons, simply leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner this Friday 6/5. Good luck!

According to random.org the winner is... Calligraphy Girl, congratulations!
