It must be the name…

You saw my sweet business cards, right?

the definition of "awesomesauce"

The sponsor of my bloggy business cards is Courtney from GCS Design and I still have a stupid smile on my face about it, because she is amazing!

In her words…

Hi! i’m Courtney – the creative mind behind Sullivan & Sawyer Co. and GCS Design. I studied marketing & graphic design in college and have turned my passion into my career. I quit my day job in November of 2010 to make this my full-time venture. GCS Design is about 4 years old and I can help with just about anything design or print wise you would require. From website design to business cards to custom party decor & printables.

And did you see my post about Eddie’s birthday?

Did you notice how cute the decorations were?  Let me refresh your memory…

food signs

personalized table confetti

customized crate paper streamers

custom flag banners

this one will be reused in his new Big Boy room

People?  I did not do this. Courtney did this too.  She has ANOTHER shop… Sullivan & Sawyer Co.

More of her words…

Sullivan & Sawyer Co. was born almost 2 years ago and this is my outlet for all things kid-friendly and made from fabric. It started with my making quality soother clips and toy ties, and I have since left those behind and moved on to a better range of products including the famous ArtClutch. Its perfect for any occasion and great to give a party favors (wholesale rates apply for order of 10+). The ArtClutch comes fully stocked with everything your child will need to get creative!

I don’t know if it’s her name (I am partial to Cortney’s…or Courtney’s in this case), but she is probably one of my favorite crafty people on the whole interwebs.

She even sent this to Eddie for his birthday:


full of distractions…er…fun!

It is AWESOME!  It carries a small pad of paper, stickers, and crayons.  We even stick his church candy in there too.  It’s great for keeping him busy in church, restaurants, really anywhere that he needs to keep his voice down.

Guess what…she is sharing the fun with you!

Courtney is offering all of you 10% off anything with the code SluiterNation.

The Legal Stuff:  Courtney is providing the spoils of this giveaway.  She is sponsoring my business cards and sent me an ArtClutch for Eddie, but I bought all the party decorations with my own money.  Regardless, she couldn’t pay me for a good review…only do quality work.  Which she does.  By the barrel load.
