Yesterday was our sixth wedding anniversary. So in memory of our 7/7/07 wedding, we’re hosting a giveaway that combines the traditional gifts from your 1st anniversary (paper) and 6th (sugar) because, well, 1 + 6 = 7 and you know we try to squeeze in a seven whenever we can. First up is Rifle Paper Company. We hung some of their city art in our old hallway, so we were pumped when they offered up a $500 gift card for one of you. You can grab anything from their art prints, stationery, and wrapping paper to their iPhone cases, recipe boxes, or anything else that suits your fancy. We especially love the personalized heart print in the lower right.
And for your sugar rush, we’ve asked one of our favorite sweetmakers, Snickety-Snacks, to hook someone up with $200 worth of customized treats. You may remember the tasty dragon cookies we bought from them for Clara’s birthday. They can work from any inspiration point, color scheme, or party theme. Oh, and if you live near them (they’re based in Northern VA) you can even order cakes or other goodies.
This $700 prize (oh look, another seven!) can be shipped worldwide too. So just enter using the Rafflecopter widget right here (it might take a second to load, but it should pop up right below this paragraph).
Oh pleassseeee Rifle Paper Co. me!!! I’m in LOVE with their products!
Happy (belated) Anniversary, you two! :)

I’m excited about the give away, just maybe I’ll be the winner … lol.
Pick me! I’m in the process of decorating my nursery and would love to have the rifle gift card and sweet treats (for the baby of course!).
I guess giving away wool in the summer is a bit silly. ;) Happy seventh anniversary!

I hope you had a wonderful anniversary! And not going to lie, really hoping I win this giveaway, the prints looks great and the sweets look delicious!
BEST GIVEAWAY EVER. Seriously. My two favorite things – snacks and paper. You guys rock.
our anniversary is coming up (9!) so let’s give it a shot!
OH my gosh. I actually gasped at my desk when I saw this- I am in love with everything Anna does at Rifle Paper Co…. I am crossing my fingers and toes for this one!!!!!
But more importantly- CONGRATS on another year together!
The first time I started following your blog was your wedding post, so I always love seeing another anniversary post. You two are such a power couple and excellent role models for couple who totally keep it real.
Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar! Art! Sugar! Happy day….
I just wanted to thank you all for doing giveaways that don’t require you to ‘like’ or ‘tweet’ or ‘pin’ a million pages just to enter. Thanks for keeping it simple! Plus your blog rocks, there are so many projects i’ve tackled because you make it accessible.
I agree 100% to your comment! Some hoops are pretty silly to enter a contest……This blog, YHL had me at hello:)
Amber Miller says
Happy Anniversary! :)
Congratulations on your 7 year anniversary! I absolutely adore Rifle Paper Company so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

Just a quick question – are you still announcing giveaway winners on the site or are you just contacting winners through email? I feel like I missed the last giveaway winner!
Thanks for organizing such a great giveaway!
We email them and do our best to post a PS on a Thursday or Friday post as well, but we always announce the winner in the original post. So whether we add the ps or not, it’s always right there in the rafflecopter box for ya if you scroll back a page or two :)
Happy Anniversary! <3
I was at the store yesterday, saw HGTV magazine on the shelf, and had to buy it! Love the article on your house and felt extra special since I'd already read your behind-the-scenes post!
“I will win this one, I will win this one”.
I’m positively thinking!!
Thanks for letting us participate!
Pat S says
Congratulations! Hope you had a wonderful day.
Kat Raborn says
Such a fun prize!!!
Great prize! I’d wish everyone good luck, but I’d be lying ;)

Happy anniversary, thank you for hosting this giveaway, and thank you for having the easiest giveaway entry system of all blogs! Just click the button! P.S. love the new blue front door; ours is a dark peacock-y blue. Blue doors for the win!
Wahoo! We need to start a blue door club.
Woop Woop, I’m a member of the club too! Let’s make bumper stickers!!
I live in a cookie-cutter clone house neighborhood and I love being able to say “third on the left, the one with the blue door!”
Happy Anniversary! Yesterday was our 29th anniversary.
Oh man, paper goods are my crack. My kryptonite. Basically, my cracktonite.
Also: Happy Anniversary :)

Love Rifle Paper Co! I was going to try to win their 2013 Cities calendar on ebay but it went for over $80 which is nuts! If you ever plan to get rid of your city art you can send it my way! ;) haha
Briel K. says
Also, happy anniversary! :)

Thank you SO much for just having one entry for your giveaways. I am not a fan having to go here and there and “Like” things or “Follow” things in order to enter.
I enjoy your blog and look forward to the continuing updates of your new wonderful house!
Agreed! I don’t even bother with those crazy giveaways.
And happy anniversary :)
Yes please! Happy Anniversay you two!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! My 8th was on the 2nd :) Flew by.
happy happy anniversary you two!!! i love your new front door too ;) that’s my fave color ;)
Michelle Z says
Is it weird feeling to have a giveaway post and not have 10k comments to deal with? Do you miss the random answers to your questions people would come up with? Or just thrilled to cut down on that insane amount of emails in your inbox?
It’s awesome! It definitely gives us more time to plan projects, get materials, or have fun with Clara instead of manually approving thousands of comments, so it feels like a better use of our time :)
Sadie Cassidy says
Looks like the 3 of you had a GREAT Anniversary yesterday! It’s so nice to see you all enjoying everything from the house, your company, summer & especially Clara! My fiance & I are getting married in September, thanks for your wedding post EVERYTHING is coming along. I literally have used it as a model from the beginning! It’s a great resource. We are having cookies in lieu of cake, so the Snickety-Snack gift card would be PERFECT! Icing Cookies are my favorite & Geoff’s are Oreos, so we’ll have both at the wedding, as well as our grandmother’s specialties!!
P.S. I met you 2 in Houston, when you signed my baseball… unfortunately several weeks later my entire collection was stolen when my apartment got broken into. Another reason I could never send you the picture we took b/c my camera was taken with the picture on it. Any chance I can mail you another ball to sign for the new collection? To date, I’ve only replaced 1 ball but it’s a work in progress = )
Oh no! That stinks! I’ll email you our PO Box address and if you send us a ball we’d be happy to sign it and send it back for you! Thanks for coming out to see us in Houston!
Happy Anniversary!!! OMG – I can’t believe it’s been 6 years! I joined the blog party late and only started reading in 2010, so I am just behind the times. Congrats!
omg, i ADORE rifle paper co. seriously cannot get enough.
happy, happy anniversary, petersiks!
And just so I only leave one comment today: I love your blue door! I was totally on the black door bandwagon after reading Katie Bower’s post the other day but now I’m like, “Paint the doors ALL THE COLORS!” I frequently drive past a house with a bright fuchsia door. It’s by a stop sign so I get to gaze at it a bit, and it’s just the cheeriest house ever.

I love Rifle paper! Thanks!!!!
I read your blog everyday and love to follow your projects. I love that you do give aways that seem like real give aways instead of an advertisement scheme. How refreshing! Thanks!
Mrs. LIAYF says
Happy Anniversary!! We hav just hit 14 years in May – that’s double 7, so we must be twice lucky!
You guys always have the best ideas for give-aways!
Amanda Welty says
