Giveaway by Celebrate Fun - (this giveaway is now closed)

I am sooooo very excited to share this next shop Celebrate Fun with you. I found this shop because of their Pay It Forward plates. I had found some plate similar to this many years ago and bought a whole stack of them because I loved them so much. I was so excited when I saw that this shop had the plates I love. It is the saying on this plate that I love so much:

This plate shall have no owner
for it's journey never ends...
it travels in the circle of
our family and our friends
It carries love from home to home
For everyone to share...
The food that's placed upon it
Is filled with love and care
So please enjoy whats on this
plate
Then fill it up again
And pass along the love it holds
To family and your friends


Let's find out more about Celebrate Fun:

When did you open your Etsy shop? I opened my Etsy shop in February of this year and it has kept me increasingly busy!

Can you tell me about the PIF item/items in your shop? I love the idea of doing something nice for others to repay the good that has been done for you, and I started my business with Pay It Forward plates. The idea is that you give this plate filled with goodies to a friend. They keep the plate, fill it up with their own goodies, and pass it on to another friend! The circle keeps going, the plate keeps traveling, and friends keep Paying It Forward! It’s one little way to make the world a nicer place. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "In the order of nature we cannot render benefits to those from whom we receive them, or only seldom. But the benefit we receive must be rendered again, line for line, deed for deed, cent for cent, to somebody."


What size plates do you offer in your shop? I offer dinner size plates and salad size plates and platters; the exact size varies, depending on the availability. I recently added desert size plates as well, which are perfect to give as a gift with a cupcake or slice of cake! These are great gifts for friends, neighbors, or to take to the office for co-workers to celebrate fun days!


What are some custom things you can do with your plates? I do lots and lots of custom plates and mugs! I have done many personalized “Happy Birthday” plates, wedding plates, and anniversary plates. Kids have sent me pieces of paper with ideas for plates they have designed that I have made for them to give to their parents for birthdays, mother’s day, etc. I have also done gift plates with poems or sayings, and images that they have requested. I receive many orders for recovery anniversary coffee mugs for people celebrating years of sobriety. This is a great personalized option to celebrate that achievement! I can pretty much do whatever is requested, so let me know what you'd like! If you can dream it, I can paint it!

Buy It - Celebrate Fun is offering MY READERS ONLY a special during the 2 weeks of the giveaway. They will offer any item 50 % off when you purchase another item in their shop only if you mention to them that you came from this blog.
They also wanted me to let you know that with every Pay It Forward plate that is sold they are donating a portion of the sale to the Michael J Fox Foundations for Parkinson's Research.

I love the Cupcake Happy Birthday plate! My family actually has 'special' items that the Birthday Boy or Girl gets to use for family celebrations, but we don't have a plate, so this would be the PERFECT addition to our party supplies! :D
