Giveaway :: The Nimbus Factory

Thursday, February 16, 2012


{ please visit the nimbus factory here }

As a little girl I used to dream about becoming a greeting card editor. It’s true. I used to even create homemade numbers from glue and bits of paper and write little poems and hand them out to family. (Before you ooh and ahh over the cuteness, you should know that they were hideous. Penned from love, but hideous nonetheless.) As I grew older, I began to realize that my strength lie not in the creation, but in the admiration. My years of blind passion also culminated in a finely tuned palate. Frankly put, I heart paper goods, but I am extremely picky.

The Nimbus Factory is one of those brands that you don’t really have to introduce. I mean, their name alone puts them a step above, as far as I’m concerned. It’s the product, however, that will make your heart flutter just enough to force a smile. I really wish I would have had the foresight to buy the “Narwhal Cupid” card for Valentine’s Day this year. (Tell me it’s not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.) Perhaps I’ll have to add to my stock of must-have paper goods with the “Everyday Occasions” card collection. And maybe a “Flying Elephants” journal, just for fun. It’s Valentine’s Day, people. Let your heart overflow.

The Nimbus Factory is giving away one set of “Thank You” cards to one lucky winner. To enter to win, please answer the following question by Thursday, February 23rd.  Comments now closed…Good luck!
What are you most thankful for at this VERY minute?
Please begin checking the winners box on Monday, February 27, 2012 to see if you’ve won. Good luck!

    Right this moment, I’m thankful to be alive, to be healthy and not in any pain. I’m thankful that I’m able to share in the joy of raising my three-year old (birthday today!) and that any other grief and sadness can be wiped away with his unabashed love for me. That is something to be incredibly grateful for.

    Since the moment I woke up this morning and every moment of this day I am thankful that it’s the day of my Grandma’s birthday.  She passed away back in 1993. I love her so much that I still love this day when it comes around every year. I love feeling the love from my grandma.  She is so special to me and I feel her with me always. Today the sky is a bit grey but for me it’s a beautiful and lovely day!

    Kristen Hughes says:

    Right this very second I am thankful for…Oatmeal! Superficial? Yes. I’m ok with that. There’s many things I appreciate in my life, but Oatmeal is pretty important to me. I eat it almost every morning. There’s something about having a steamy hot bowl in my lap while drinking my coffee and putzing around on the internet first thing in the morning that just makes me feel comfy, secure, home. I can dress it up healthy with flax and fruit, or I can make it sinful with chocolate chips and spices. It fills me up and gives me energy for the gym or work. It’s a constant in my life, I look forward to it every day. My husband thinks I’m nuts for having it every morning. I don’t have a security blanket, I have a warm bowl of yumminess. Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to devour a bowl right now.

    I’m thankful for the sun. February in Chicago I believe is the toughest month of the year to make it through. However, the sun is shining and the sky is blue, which makes such a massive difference while waiting for spring to come. It may still be winter, but the outlook is sunny!
