Dreaming of England with CafePress and a Giveaway!

Last month, I introduced you all to CafePress, a great company for ordering themed or personalized items for gifts, business---or yourself!  CafePress offers lots of flip flops and cool shirts for summer---and sweatshirts for summer nights.  

Recently, I treated myself to a few CafePress gifts, and even bought a couple for one lucky reader out there!
Won't this Jane Austen-themed field bag be awesome on my England trip in September?  I just read today that Jennie has bumped us up to a private coach from Bath to Winchester, and again from Winchester to London.  Lots of quiet, peaceful writing time!  I am really impressed by the quality and size of the bag.  It definitely exceeded my expectations!  It's the perfect size for my laptop and roomy enough to hold a couple of books, a notebook, my camera, and any other day-travelling essentials, as well.  

The quote on the bag says, "It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do." ~ Jane Austen.  That is an awesome perspective!

I also picked up a couple of magnets with the same quote on them.  You guessed it---one for me and one for (one of) you! Again, I was impressed by the quality of the printing and the size of the magnet.  These would make excellent advertising tools for a business or blog.
In addition, I picked out two of these adorable Pride and Prejudice greeting cards.  They're blank inside so you can use yours for any occasion.  I haven't decided what I'm going to do with mine, but I'm thinking I might save it to send to my England hotel-mate after our trip.  

I'm looking forward to utilizing CafePress's personalized service to make some unique business cards and stationery with my blog logo on them.  Maybe I'll even get a couple of custom shirts with my logo on them, or a coffee mug--for tea, of course!

Now for the giveaway!  One winner will be chosen via Rafflecopter on Friday, May 17th.  This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE.  Thank you to all my wonderful readers all over the world!  (widget may take a few seconds to load...)
