Seriously, how long will it take me to remember that mirrors make words go backwards?
There you go.
Look at me! I'm a Super Advocate! Considering that I came across this shirt when I was neck deep in insurance battling, it seemed all too perfect for me. Then I thought about IEP stuff, research projects, scheduling battles, rude receptionists, etc etc. I am a super advocate . . . and I bet that a lot of you readers are, too :)
So I ordered myself that shirt, thought about you guys, and decided to get in touch with the shop owner, Colleen Tomko. I told her that I knew a group of people (that's you guys) who I thought would love her designs, and asked whether she would be interested in doing a giveaway, and then she jumped on board. Little did I know that she would send me not 1, but 2 great prizes!
First things first, just so you know: I'm not getting anything out of this. I paid full price for my shirt, I didn't get any kickbacks, and I don't know Colleen. I just thought that a lot of you would dig her designs, and also, giveaways are really fun.
Now that that's clear, check out the store: Her store, The Parent Side, is pretty darn cool. The designs are clever, humorous, colorful, and catchy. I bet you'll see something that makes you smile.
Here are the giveaways!:
A mug featuring the A Super Advocate design. First off, who doesn't need a mug? Second, while you drink your coffee/tea/water/whatever, you will recognize your awesome advocating self and smile.
A beautiful large framed print of her "Celebrate Diversity" design. (Specs here). I asked for a mug, Colleen sent this too---how generous is that :) Let me say, this is really nice---it's a great design, vibrant and colorful, and beautifully framed. You could hang it at home, or in your office, or it would make an amazing gift to a school or therapy center (and you would be their new favorite client, I think.)
Here they both are together:
