Cafepress.com #Sponsored


Cafepress.com provided me with a gift certificate for a giveaway.  All opinions and shameless evidence of nerdiness are my own.

There is no shortage of proof of the nerdiness of our Little Pink House tribe.
  • We have weird issues with numbers - as in we feel rather strongly about the superiority of some numbers over others.  No, that's not a religious or mystic thing, it's a I like numbers divisible by three, Engineer likes prime numbers, and Diva likes numbers because of their shape thing.  Maybe it's not our issues that are weird...
  • Before starting a project, Engineer must research every aspect of said project before he can even contemplate starting it (he would argue that research is starting the project.)
  • Engineer is, well, an engineer.
  • Somebody in the household is a Mensan.  
  • We all have certain patterns/routines that must be adhered to or else the wheels totally come off the wagon.
  • I have a book on napkin folding...and actually use it.
  • Instead of playing video games, eleven year old Diva writes books or knits in her down time.
So what does airing our geeky laundry have to do with cafepress.com?
I'm so glad you asked!

They have a fabulous selection of geeky themed items (including a whole section on "The Big Bang Theory") that frankly, we didn't know we couldn't live without until we saw them.
And now we want one of everything.
Thanks a lot cafepress...

Cafepress.com is an online store that sells novelty and personalized items.  You don't have to be a geek to appreciate their merchandise; they have stuff for perfectly normal people too.

You can order anything from shower curtains with fabric printed with a funny saying like this one I'm sure Engineer and Diva would love:


Or you could order 2013 calendars that start when you want them to start and then go 12 months out from there.  For instance you could order one now with a start date of June 2013 and it would go through to May 2014.  These are perfect for people who work to a different type of calendar year like a fiscal year, a school year, a liturgical year, etc. 

They even have items like personalized baby blankets, tees, and hats for the tiny tots in your life. 

Now's the time to grab those graduation and Father's Day gifts and cafepress.com is a great place to get all of your gifts in one place.

The beauty of cafepress is the products can directly reflect your personality or the personality of the recipient.  You can even produce your own design!

If you would like to give cafepress.com a whirl now's your chance!  Those good folks have offered a $25 gift certificate to cafepress.com to one of my readers.  Enter by the rafflecopter below.  The winner will have three days after being contacted before a new name is drawn.  Good luck!

  1. My husband likes primes too...and I like the number 13..not because it's bad luck, which I don't believe in, but because...well, it's a long story. If you want you can read it here:

  2. Kind of sort of--but not like you do. Hahaha! I do like your reasoning of using numbers for stockpiling though-I like things very organized in a way that makes sense-and to me picking a certain number--like 6 or 12 products because it would give you one year supply--makes sense, so if that counts! ;)

  7. I like numbers that end in 5 or 0 and if that can't happen then it's got to be even!

  8. We don't have weird number issues here, just weird color issues. I've got twin kindergartners and if their cups aren't the exact color they desire, they go nuts! It's like certain colors imbue their drink with special magical powers or something by the way they act. But no, numbers are just fine. So far...

  13. Not really, but we do have favorites! Hubby's fave is 17, my oldest daughter love 8 (the way it looks) and my youngest likes 3 (or Fwee, as she says it) because that's her age. I'm the only one without a favorite. Maybe I have "issues".

  15. I king of like everything to be in even numbers because I prefer symmetry but that's about it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not really, but I'm pretty sure my 11 year old daughter picked her favorite hockey player, Nicklas Backstrom, based solely on his number (19). It happens to be her favorite.

  19. The biggest number issue around here is having to make everything come out even for the varying numbers of people who show up for dinner. Dividing a cake into 8 pieces is easy . . . 7? Not so much!

  20. I have weird issues with all numbers. Math is out to get me, seriously. It has been since Jr. High!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't think of of! ;-P But now that I'm thinking about it, I'm sure something will pop up in the next day or so!

  22. No number issues, really, other than trying to get the hot dog/bun ratio correct.

  23. nope eclairre(AT)ymail(DOT)com

  24. We don't have any number issues, but we all usually sit in the same places at the dinner table, and if someone switches seats, it can cause an disruption in the Force.

  25. No number issues at this house !

    ReplyDelete
  26. My niece has number issues. Odds are not allowed!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thankfully I don't have any number issues, but I always tend to lean on the side of the odds (especially the number 13!)
