{ GIVEAWAY }
Finding Along Came A Spider etsy shop was a happy accident for me.  One of my oldest and dearest friends was starting her life with her long time sweetheart.  They've been together for almost 10 years and will be celebrating their first official Christmas together as a family unit.  That is pretty special.  What could I get to help them celebrate this occasion?

Well, my research quickly brought me to custom ornaments.  While researching personalized ornaments, I found the Along Came a Spider etsy shop.  It is a shop filled with whimsy and fantasy, bright colors and happy designs.  There are personalized polymer clay ornaments that are meant to impress and custom designed polymer clay cake toppers that are designed to wow.

Along with offering polymer clay fairy tale characters, milestone ornaments, pirates, mermaids, princesses, policemen, doctors and firefighters, Peg, the owner of the shop, offers personalized designs.  This is what I contacted her about. 

Peg responded to my inquiry immediately.  I sent her pictures of my dear friends and told her what I wanted.  That is, a tall red head man and a small thin brunette with medium hair.  I also asked her to put a snowboard in the picture.  Only four days later, I had a first draft picture in my inbox.

I asked Peg if she could add a dog and change the color and shape of the snowboard.  The very next day I had a 2nd draft and final product.  I was blown away.  It was perfect! 
 
In fact, I liked the ornament so much that I ordered another one for my sister and her husband.  I just couldn't help it.

Although there were many styles to choose from, I went with the exact same style, but different people.  I chose the outfits and sent pictures of the people.

Again, Peg sent over a first draft and I made changes.  I truly wonder if I am extra picky or if everyone does that.  I had her change my brother-in-law's build, making him taller and wider, as well as his hair color. She very quickly sent me the final draft, which I adore. 


As we all know, the story didn't end there.  I kept wanting to order more, haha.  These were addictive!  That is when I asked Peg if I could offer to give away a personal ornament to one of YOU.

That's right, you could potentially win a FREE ornament for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.

I am so excited about this!

I'm going to finish up my review and then let you know a bit more about how you can enter this fun holiday giveaway.



{ REVIEW }
There is a reason why this Etsy store has 5/5 stars in almost 200 reviews.  Peg creates beautiful, fun and friendly personalized ornaments and cake toppers at an affordable price.  This will be my go-to Christmas gift for newlyweds and milestone occasions. 

{ THUMBS DOWN }
There is very little information given about the etsy shop or about Peg.  I always enjoy reading about the inspiration and background of Etsy shop owners and Peg did not provide this.

Since Along Came a Spider has almost 700 sales and extremely good reviews, it is less important that Peg provide this information, but it would have been a nice touch. 

{ THUMBS UP }
- High quality, creative product.
- Affordable price for a small gift.
- Quick response and processing time.
- Friendly response.  Peg shared with me that she recently adopted a puppy that looked similar to my friends' new pup.  She was a pleasure to work with!
- Incredibly open to feedback during personalization.  I felt a bit bad asking for so many modifications.  Peg responded positively and quickly, making the ornaments just as I desired.

I am actually answering the question you asked for us to comment on:

If I had to choose one on her etsy page, I would go with the Milestone Fox and Heart ornament. BUT I would love one like the one you ordered for your friends, but of me and my boyfriend :)

Thank you for the giveaway!
