What’s in the Bag?! (A Hint, it’s Swag.)

So you and I met at BlogHer and I gave you one of my goodie bags.  I bet we were like best friends.   I can’t wait to see you at BlogHer12.

Anyway, the bag you’re holding… I nearly lost my marbles over this one, but as a result there are some VERY cool sposnsors who wanted to share goodies with you and help draw attention to little Miss Getty Owl  and SMA 1.  Ready to learn more?

I’ll start with the bags.  They are courtesy of the great folks at Drinkwel who have also included a sample of their genius product: A multivitamin for healthy people who like to pop open a bottle of wine after a good sweat at the gym.  Also, Mike who runs things is just a hilarious dude.  Also, there is something super fun about walking around a massive party cigarette girl style going: “Hang Over Pills?”  Those bags went like wildfire, and I love seeing that folks are already taking advantage of their Getty Downloads.

Next up? Newly launched (and thoroughly addictive) FAB.com who were kind enough to sponsor my big conference swag which isn’t the awesome floaty pens I wanted it to be, but hey, these acrylic magnets are still pretty effing cool, huh?

(The wood fetishist in me I can’t control myself from pointing out the difference between photos I took on real wood, and photos I took on hotel-furniture wood.  Blech.)

ANYWAY:  If you have one of these, I BEG you, PLEASE put it to use somewhere.  It was a serious headache to create.  But on the awesome side, you can either click that little QR code on your magnet to join FAB, or CLICK HERE for instant access + $10 credit JUST for being a reader/lurker/bumper-into-at-BlogHer of The818.

Oh, and that amazeballs design comes courtesy of Lindsay who made those vectors for me in a super tight pinch.  (Like, hammered it out in a day when my other swag plans fell throat – and I refused to use last year’s card.  Special thanks to Traci and Grama Ann Marie for helping me get those bags jammed full of getty goodies.)

So what else did folks get in their Getty Bags?  (Get it?  Like Goodie Bags…but Getty Bags…I’m so tired.)

The generous ladies at Mabel’s Labels helped make the bags possible, and gave out their kick-ass cord tags, and custom band aids, which I hear came in handy on quite a few occasions.

Doni from California Footwear rode her white steed to the rescue to round up the sponsors needed to bring the Getty Bag project to fruition.  But that wasn’t enough for her.  She wanted to do more.   Three lucky bag-getters will find golden tickets for a free pair of sandals (I wore mine THE.WHOLE.WEEKEND) and if you didn’t win, you can buy a pair of your own, and Doni will donate 20% of sales to The Getty Owl Foundation, just because she is rad.  And her insanely comfortable shoes aren’t too shabby either.

And of course, along with your SMA info sheet and Getty Owl Foundation Bracelets, you guys will find a download code for the title single of Sweet Water Child Lullabies for Getty…

Want to get involved?   Buy the album, and spread the word…check out www.lullabiesforgetty.com to find out more.

…And then there were the Four iPads generously sponsored for give away by bo.lt.


Giving away iPads is super fun.  So is giving out beautiful felt coasters.  Did you get one?

And lastly…I just wanted you to see this shot of Getty and Kate.

Because they’re beautiful.

Missed BlogHer but want one of these goodie bags?  I’ve got about 10 left that I’ll send to the first ten readers to mobilize and respond…if you guys want.   I’ll also send you a grip of Getty Bracelets to wear as your own fashion statement, or share with five friends.  And okay fine…full copies of the album instead of just a single.  TEN OF THEM. 

Share www.lullabiesforgetty.com on facebook or twitter (then leave a comment here with the link to your share so I can confirm) to be eligible.   Boom.   Insta-giveaway.  #BlogHerAtHome #OhWaitImNotOnTwitterRightNow.
