a RAK (aka, Caroline's win it before you can buy it prize)...


... ok all you blog stalking kittens, here is something fab that we want to share with you. as crazy as the show will be this coming week, we want to offer 1 of our new chipboard alphas in a lunch tin - to one lucky blog stalker! this is one of our new chipboard alphabet chippies in a fab tin.

i have heard lots of people debate whether packaging can be the thing that takes a product over the top and we believe the answer is yes BUT since the Maya Road sisters are practical engineers, we love the tin look and we love that you can do something fab with the tin later - storage, gift, lunches, etc.


and we hope you like it too but more importantly, thank you for your support of us in the last 3 years. to jump from a table top at CHA CHICAGO in 2004 to a small booth in 2005 to a double booth in 2006 - we couldn't have done it without you!


so here is how you can win. this RAK entry is good until CHA summer is over (NEXT SUNDAY) - to enter - post here so we at least know who you are (we can't give something to an anon person b/c we can't get a hold of you). anyone is eligible but 1 entry only please.


i will pick someone 1.5 weeks from now and you will be one of the first in the whole world to get a set of MR chipboard alphas! thanks again for making us a BLESSED company. it means a lot.

WOW WOw WOW - what awesome alphas and what an even more awesome tin! I can just see it now - altering the tin, using the alphas to make a gorgeous prayer box for my 1 year old daughter! What a great idea! - Love the blog too!

LOVE the chipboard scrolls! Love all your stuff actually - but every time I think the whole scrapping world is looking too much the same, you guys twist it just a little bit and it just gets better and better! Can't wait to see the new stuff in person.

Those chipboard alphas are to die for..a really practical item to buy as the tin itself is screaming to be altered!!! :)

Love your chipboard! And yes, I do buy products of any kind, scrapbook related or not, with the thoughts of altering the packaging down the road. And your tins are at the top of my list. I would love a RAK from you!!! LOL!

I found MR offerings by accident and fell in LOVE with them! Thanks for such inspirational products! My hometown store doesn't carry MR, but I am trying my best to get them interested. I found tons of MR while vacationing in Florida and scooped up bunches. Creating keepsakes and art is always easier when MR products are on my crafting area! Thanks!!

Congratulations on all of your successes at the show, as I know you will have been successful by the time you read this! Your products are amazing and I am sure they will literally fly off your shelves! You both have worked hard to get to where you're at! Business ladies, moms, wives!!
Thanks for offering up such a yummy and generous rak!

Congratulations, I am seeing MR more and more these days. As for packaging, I do love looking at pretty packaging but it's the product I am looking at, doesn't matter if it's pretty or in a plain old brown carton.
