giveaway - personalized stationery

During the late nights that Roopal Shah spent creating unique invitations and announcements for her sister’s shower, her brother’s wedding, her son’s birth, and so on… she also discovered her genuine passion for the process of getting creative with paper and ink! Cut to 4 years later, and Roopal is still busy cranking out creative custom designs – through her very own design studio: 1st Comes Love.

At 1st Comes Love – as Roopal explains – “We focus on creating designs for wedding invitations, birth announcements, and just about any piece of stationery you could need!”

Speaking of “things we need” – I could really use some spending money for holiday gifts like cute personalized notecard sets… how ’bout you?!

Well, we’re in luck, because 1st Comes Love is generously offering up $50 Shopping Sprees for TWO lucky HWTM readers! Winners can spend the $ however they like – personalized holiday cards, personalized stationery, towards a custom wedding invitation design, etc.

(Details for how to enter after the jump…)
