Thanks to Janey who pointed out that today is my blogoversary. Duh!
So obviously a contest is in order. And since I have a wedding coming up and have put off the gift making to the very end, that's where the contest comes in. No, you do not have to knit a wedding dress or send me cake to get a prize (though the cake thing can't hurt). What I want is your tales - I want to create a book (one of those photo books from Snapfish or Photobucket or wherever) with advice, stories, pictures, etc. for my cousin and his soon-to-be-wife. So send me your best advice for a pair of newlyweds, a funny story from your own wedding/commitment ceremony how you knew you had met "the one" or whatever bit you think should be included. Extra entries for emailing a non-copyrighted picture to go along with it and/or for sending friends. The contest ends a week from now, May 15th at 6:00pm EST. The winner(s) will be randomly drawn and will receive knitting goodness and a version of the photo book if they want one.
Example (real story, fake names)
My mother was recently admitted to the hospital, her cancer had spread. I am getting married in July and she will likely not make it to the wedding. Instead, my fiancee and I planned an impromptu wedding in her hospital room. The nurses decorated the room, nutrition services made dinner, the hospital got a local photographer to donate her time and skills for the night. It was beautiful. -Chris and Shawn, May 8, 2008
Thanks for playing.
