DreamSakes Shows BlogHer Attendees What Scanning Kids' Artwork is All About

Share Article

DreamSakes’ “Art at the Bar” station with The Mouthy Housewives at BlogHer gave Mommy-Bloggers a chance to feel like kids again by picking up markers, glue, glitter, feathers, foam stickies, and more to design their own cocktail napkins. Each napkin was scanned by DreamSakes and entered into a contest, and hundreds voted. Silly Mommy Thoughts took the prize and won a 6-charm bracelet adorned with high quality scans of her children's artwork, a brand new item coming soon to the DreamSakes Gift Shop.

DreamSakes' new charm bracelet, customized with precision-scanned children's artwork

We were thrilled to see the incredible designs all the women created

What do you get when you put 150 Mommy-Bloggers in a room with The Mouthy Housewives and the DreamSakes “Art at the Bar” station at BlogHer?

You get very creative cocktail napkins! DreamSakes was thrilled to scan artwork created on over 60 napkins – adorned with feathers, puff balls, foam stickies, and Sharpies in every color of the rainbow – post them on DreamSakes.com, and let people vote for their favorites.

“We were thrilled to see the incredible designs all the women created,” says Susan Smith, vice president of marketing for DreamSakes. “Having the opportunity to scan the artwork on their napkins was a great way to demonstrate just how DreamSakes gives parents a way to de-clutter children’s artwork, have it scanned to preserve it forever, share it with others (electronically and on paper), and have it printed on fun and useful custom keepsakes.”

So, who won? At first, Silly Mommy Thoughts took an early lead, and seemed unstoppable. Then Guavalicious gave her a real run for the prize and almost overtook her. But in the end, Silly Mommy Thoughts prevailed and won. Lindsay Maddox won a six-charm bracelet to be personalized with her kids’ artwork.

Making the prize even more special is that the bracelet is a brand new gift item for DreamSakes. When it is added to the DreamSakes Gift Shop next month, there will also be a matching necklace available. This new jewelry collection is solid zinc metal plated in white bronze. That means it’s 100% waterproof and UV resistant. It’s also lead-free and tarnish resistant. The charm bracelet is adjustable from seven to eight inches, and can be ordered with anywhere from one to six charms. The necklace includes one charm. Charms are .79 x .79 inches.
