Giveaway by Words To Sweat By (this giveaway is now closed)

Do you go to the gym? If so then you need one of the towels from Words to Sweat By™. OK these are great motivation for home too but can you imagine the conversations at the gym with the towels. Aren't they great?

Words to Sweat By™ (didn't they pick out a great name too?) sent me the towel pictured below and putting my heart into it is exactly what I need to do since I have been sick the last week and have gotten out of my routine.

I just think these towels are wonderful and it is well worth the $8.00 you pay for one just for the conversation that will come with it. Not to mention this would be the perfect gift for a bride-to-be trying to shed those last few pounds, your work-out partner or your weight loss buddy.


Let's learn about Words to Sweat By™:


When did you open your Etsy shop? I opened this Etsy shop in October 2009.



How did you decide to start making motivational products? I had previously been on Etsy selling products for children but stop making those products due to CPSIA. I was thinking through alternative ideas for products to create and wanted to do something fun and lighthearted. I decided to apply motivational mantras to everyday items
for fitness enthusiasts because it combined a whole host of things I enjoy: creative writing, fitness, and supporting people in their health goals.



Do you take custom orders? No custom orders at this time.


What makes you smile? The smell of fresh cut grass and the sound of children giggling. If the two happen together, even better.



Buy It - Like I said this would make the perfect gift for a weight loss buddy, work-out partner or that bride-to-be trying to shed those last few pounds.


Win It - Words to Sweat By™ wants to do something really fun for the giveaway. They are giving 2 towels to one of my readers. They are giving the "Strength. Compassion. Peace." & the " No Excuses" towels. They are hoping that the winner will keep one and give the other one away to a work-out partner. This giveaway is open to my readers in the US and Canada only.
