Thinnerware Giveaway

Our feature today is Thinnerware. With Sarah's permission, owner of Thinnerware, I will give you the story in her own words.

"It was the Summer of 2007 and I, in an effort to lose a few pounds, was counting calories. Like most diets this involved measuring, measuring, and more measuring. And then there was the washing of all the measuring cups before they could be used the next day. After premeasuring yet another bowl of cereal one morning I asked myself,"Why can't dishes be marked like measuring cups? But without looking like measuring cups?"

I immediately started designing dishes that would do just that.

In 2009, with the help of family and friends, I started my own online store, Thinnerware.com. All the dishes are hand-painted in my little studio in Lehi, UT."

I'm tickled because I knew Sarah in some of the beginning stages of her company. I got to see her sit at the park with her children and design some of these dishes all while her husband was away serving our country. She has great character and is amazingly creative. Thinnerware is a huge reflection of her creativity and I'm so excited for her.

Thinnerware is on the brink of national success. Her dishes are also being featured in the November 2009 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.

And now for the fun part!
Today we will be giving away 2 place settings of your chosing. This includes two plates, two cups, and two bowls($56 value). You may also pick your own custom colors.
To enter:

1 Entry for commenting on what style/color you would choose. www.thinnerware.com
1 Entry for following my blog
1 Entry for adding our button to your blog
1 Entry for posting about us on your blog
1 Entry for joining our facebook group "So Sweet Giveaways"

My Blog and I

For those of you who have been with me through the beginning, wow we've seen a lot of changes over the last year.  Many of you don't know this but, this site started as "Students of a Feather, Flock Together"  It was meant to be a giveaway site for college students in Utah County, Utah.   I then expeanded the site to be "Utah County Flocks" anyone in Utah County was eligible for giveaways.  An opportunity was presented to me by a friend and I expanded my blog to cover the nation.  I called it So Sweet Giveaways.  Due to demands on my time as a mother and wife, I was not able to keep up with all the giveaways.  Today I present to you "My So Sweet Life".  This is my personal blog.  I hope to still do giveaways at some point.  But for now I am a mom and I do not have time to search out these things.  I hope you enjoy my thoughts and experiences along the way.  Thanks for reading

Thanksgiving Point Giveaway!!!***CLosed***

You voted and exclaimed "Thanksgiving Point Gift Certificate Please!" So here it is. Your entries will be good toward a $30 Gift Certificate at Thanksgiving Point.

What could one do with such a priceless treasure? Well, I have some suggestions.

1. Search for the 13 Gnomes at the Dinosaur Museum. My husband and I have had a Thanksgiving Point membership for 2 years now. I've been to the museum countless times. Yet it was only two weeks ago that we finally found all 13 Gnomes. I'll give you a hint...

SOME OF THEM ARE PAINTED!!!! Cheaters! For the last two years I thought they were all free standing. I posted a picture of the only painted one I actually found. My husband found the rest. Though I did managed to find one other free standing gnome on my own. The workers at the Museum said this one was the hardest to find, and I found it..thats right:).

2. ****next season, they closed Sept.30th :(******Eat at the Trellis Cafe(located at the Gardens) for Lunch. I would have to say that this little cafe is one of the best kept secrets of Utah County. Since they are only open for Lunch (11-3 M-S), most people don't get a chance to go. My sister and I have the opportunity to eat here this August and were very impressed. Though there menu is limited the food is superb. My favorite is their sweet potato fries. Besides the food, the views from the balcony are spectaculor. Guys this would be a Great way to impress your Lady.

( Please note this is a picture of Garden's Waterfall not the view from Trellis Cafe)

3. Go to the FREE GARDEN and then shop at the Emporium(they have fudge too :)). I didn't know this for the longest time but if you're at Water Tower Plaza and you follow the brick path past the Emporium and before the Art Insitute you make a right, you walk right into a beautiful garden. It has canopied archways, beautiful bridges, gazebos, waterfalls, and more! There is no charge to walk there.

Alright guys and gals here's how to enter:

  1. 1 entry-comment how you would use your certificate http://www.thanksgivingpoint.com/ .

  2. 1 entry-follow my blog

  3. 1 entry-join us on facebook (Utah County Flocks Together Group)

5. 1 entry-add button to blog

6. 1 entry per day- our link in your facebook status
