The Smarty Swagfest continues for yet another week this holiday season! This week, we are featuring a fabulous giveaway by our Smarty friends at Paper Twist in Specialty Shops at the Park in SouthPark.
Friends and long-time business partners Sasha Harbrecht and Laura Smith unwrapped Paper Twist in August 2008. Sharing a love of fine papers and pretty things, Sasha and Laura researched and sourced all of their favorite gift wrap, stationery, fine pens and office accessories to create their new retail venture. With an eye to detail and organization, they craved a collection of office accessories and tools that were stylish, presented materials in a seamless fashion and were fun. They also wanted a vast selection of fine ribbons, quality gift wrap and a place that would always be ready for a staff member or customer to wrap a gift (and the wrapping bar was born). Sasha and Laura believe giving a beautiful present doesn’t have to be complicated. They will be teaching others how to wrap beautiful gifts and for those that would rather leave it to the experts – they are happy to oblige. Sasha and Laura have a great sense of humor and hope to bring a fresh perspective to retail – they believe that if gifting was a competition – you’d win with Paper Twist.
Paper Twist is giving one lucky Smarty the perfect mommy package, valued at $195. You’ll be organized, dressed in a sassy tee and ready to send out a darling thank-you note from you and your precious child. Click here to enter – contest ends at 11pm on Wednesday, 12/17. Package includes:
-One Truly Mom Planner – choose from micro satin or majilite. Truly Mom planners are fabulous! Started by three friends/sisters with an incredibly beautiful story (click here and read About Us on their site – you’ll be hooked!), they set out to design the perfect planner for moms. This stylish trifold planner includes a month-to-month section, a phone #/address book, and four useful pads including a “note from mom” pad, a post-it pad, lists pad and day organizer. Super Smarty!
-One box of Thanking out of the box Stationery for you, also by Truly Mom. This stationery set takes a truly unique approach to expressing thanks. These cards give each note that special touch that your friends will appreciate. It’s almost as if the thank-you is a gift itself.

ok, seriously.. this is like the 2nd or 3rd time i have found myself needing to defend this awesome site from some random no name who wants to bash it. I don’t understand adults in this day and age who 1. say nasty things to people who are working hard to do good things for others, and 2. are too coward to do it face to face. leave these amazing ladies alone to do their jobs, and if you don’t like the site, don’t visit it.. but don’t be rude… especially during holiday season… UGHHH.. some people!!!
Yay for the comment above! I ditto that statement 100%. Thank you CSP for doing everything that you do and keep up the great work! I’m so excited about the mommy planner and to check out this store. It looks really cute! Pick me, pick me!
I love Paper Twist! I especially love the wrapping bar – so clever! So good to see you on CSP:-)
I checked out the site of the moms who created the mommy planner, and they have some of their microsatin planners on sale in the “sale” section. Just a head’s up because it’s a great deal!
There are so many colors in the planner. You should check them out in person – very cool! Thanks for having such a fab giveaway. Very exciting! Can’t wait to visit this store.
I love CSP, and correct me if I am wrong but isn’t the blog to help moms… whether that is advice on sleeping through the night or things that make our live easier like the ‘mommy planner’. I personally love the stuff that you recommend, I am a work at home mom for a firm in DC and when you advertised the ASANA ‘lounge wear’ I thought that couldn’t be more perfect for me…comfortable, but when I need to leave the house to pick up my son from daycare I won’t be embarrased!!! I may not be interested in all that you recommend, but it is nice to know what is out there. THAT IS WHAT MAKE CSP SO WONDERFUL, YOU POST PARENTING TIPS AND ADVICE, BUT ALSO LET US KNOW WHAT IS OUT THERE TO SIMPLIFY OUR LIVES!
How are the winners selected? Is it a random drawing?
I can’t believe you felt the need to ask this question. Of course it’s random! We take the total # of entries and randomly pick a number b/w 1 and x. That’s the lucky Smarty!
did anyone ever win this?
