••••••••••••••••••••••••••



It's Friday and I'm fired up!!
Remember the box I posted about earlier this week?
The box from my favorite "inspirational products" company? (Compendium)

Today is the day to reveal what was inside...
But before I do that I have to share the story behind it all.

I also shared the link on my Facebook Fan page, as well as on twitter.
The next thing I know, I receive an email from Meredith at Compendium!!
She thanked me for spreading the word about their company and asked if she could send me some "goodies".
As you can imagine I was beyond thrilled!

Compendium is a company I found years ago.
I especially love their inspirational books by Kobi Yamada.
The books are usually designed with short and sweet inspirational messages - usually one on every page for easy reading and a quick dose of "empowerment".
They are the type of books you can leave around the house to add to your decor too.

So again, to be approached by a company who's mission I firmly believe in - "live inspired"
and who's products I absolutely adore...
I was ecstatic.

After pouring over the inspirational wrapping on the package when it arrived...
I finally opened it:

everything was thoughtfully packaged
& a handwritten envelope addressed to me was sitting right on top.

the note from Meredith was really sweet and I LOVED the business card she included

the box was LOADED with lots of fun, beautiful, Compendium products...
products7129

adorable little notebooks with inspirational quotes ON them...
products7127

and inspirational quotes INSIDE of them too...

the BEAUTIFUL inspirational "Believe" book...(watch the video)

How pretty is the packaging on this box of thank you cards?
products7134

The box opens like a book and has a magnetic enclosure
encouraging continued use even after the cards have been used.

These gorgeous "Give Thanks" thank you cards come in THREE different designs.
I mention this because....
In the original email from Meredith, not only did she want to send ME some goodies...
Compendium would also like to send something to my readers.
You heard me!
They want to send out something to my READERS!!
They would like to send out sets of their new "Give Thanks" thank you cards.
And because there are THREE different designs for these "Give Thanks" thank you cards...
Compendium would like to send out a set to THREE of you!!
THREE lucky winners!!
And these are PERFECT timing for the upcoming Thanksgiving season...don't you think?!

KEEPING IT REAL
And GO HERE if you missed the free Halloween printables I posted yesterday.
(Because I was a dork and posted it using the date I actually created the post, (a couple of days ago), instead of yesterday's date...it was shifted underneath my other posts). oops!
I reposted it this morning but of course it's underneath this post now! *wink*

Oh...and let me just say...
When I got the email from Meredith I was SO excited.
When I got the package of goodies I was ecstatic!
I immediately stopped what I was doing to photograph everything.
The timing wasn't so great because I happened to be feeding Ella lunch at the time.
This meant that when I was done photographing, I found myself faced with an unexpected project:
"Lunch Disaster Clean Up"...

ps. I have recently been sent a gift from compendium, and live in Canada - so am fully aware I will not be in the contest - and would much rather others receive something special anyways! My post is mostly just to say thanks for being great, and that I love Compendium too!

I love the lunch mail for kids. This would be so fun to tuck inside my granddaughers' lunch boxes. A note from grandma would surely brighten their day, don't you think?

Allison,  October 22, 2010 at 2:48 PM  

Do I have to just pick one?? I love the lunch mail for kids and the Thank You for Being. Fantastic!

Just this... Alice October 22, 2010 at 3:10 PM  

I would love to read Believe. I have a wood cutout that reads Believe with God all things are possible. This was a gift during a very depressing time. I love it even more now. Thanks for the chance to enter for a give away.

OMG Jess - I would have been estatic too if I received a package of Compendium! I too have been a fan for years and am in love with their inspirational products!! Everything they do is lovely and always well received.

My favorite products are the inspirational books and one of my favorites is SHE. I received it as a b-day gift last year and would love to share with a dear girlfriend. I'm crossing my fingers crossed I'm one of the lucky winners. =)

Have a wonderful weekend!

I am a HUGE fan of Compendium! I love their inspirational sayings, their daily quotes, and I must say that my current favorite is the magnet that can be changed almost daily with a new saying/quote.

I am also a fan on Facebook.

It goes without saying that I am a HUGE fan of Jessica's at Pen N' Paperflowers. So, of course I am a fan on Facebook too.

Renee October 24, 2010 at 8:05 PM  

This is absolutely beautiful, Jess! I can only imagine the possibilities and the inspiration that it brings! Enjoy all of your goodies!!

- Jessica

Angela October 29, 2010 at 12:44 PM  

Just checking your winners and am sad it wasn't me but so happy for your 3 winners! Hoping I might guess your first Compendium book.

jess @ pen n' paperflowers October 31, 2010 at 7:19 AM  

BIG NEWS everyone!!
I will be selecting ANOTHER winner for this Compendium giveaway because Shannon Andrews - one of the current winners - had this to say:

"I have recently been sent a gift from Compendium, and would much rather others receive something special anyways! My post is mostly just to say thanks for being great, and that I love Compendium too!"

I completely overlooked that portion of her original comment and was wondering why I hadn't heard back from her - and have no way of contacting her. So...Shannon...if you are out there...reading this...thanks SO much for the comment and for being so gracious to give another reader a chance to sample the Compendium products!!

My readers are THE BEST!
The new winner will be announced soon!!!
