Make This House A Home Giveaway!

Welcome to the Make This House A Home Giveaway Event! I think it is very important to make a house a home. Being that I am a military wife, I have many "homes". Doing my best to make the house as comfortable and familiar as possible is all I can do!

This event is hosted by Tales From the Nursery and Mama's Baby Cupcakes and runs from July 20 to August 3. Each participating blog will be giving away a home related item with a minimum value of $25. The Grand Prize is sponsored by Gallery Direct! TWO winner's get to choose any item from Gallery Direct up to $200! {US only}


Here at The Life Of A Coast Guard Wife, I have a treat for you! I will be giving away 3D photo crystal from 3D Laser Gifts! When I got my 3D photo crystal, I was in awe! This has to be one of the neatest things I have ever seen! To see my little boys forever etch into a crystal was just memorizing! I could not take my eyes off of it for a few days!

From 3D Laser Gifts:

How do you make the 3D laser images?                                                                                                            Photo crystals are made using a special laser that focuses its concentrated beams of light to a precise point below the surface of the crystal. Each bright point in the image is plotted in the final crystal piece. The laser then focuses a high-powered beam on each three-dimensional coordinate. Once the beam reaches the focal point, the powerful laser pulse makes a tiny void or inclusion inside the crystal. Then the laser moves to the next coordinate and makes another etched point. Finally, enough points are created to reproduce the design deep within the crystal. As laser beams are non-invasive, no marks or blemishes are left on the surface of the crystal. When viewed from any angle the intricate design is viewed much like a three dimensional sculpture.

The crystals come in different shapes like flat, tower, diamond and more! I personally went with the diamond shape. I also love that the crystals can come with a light base. Trust me, the light base makes all the difference! The crystal goes from being "wow, that's neat" to jaw dropping amazement!

It was so super easy to order my crystal. All I had to do was pick what all I wanted and find a picture, and that was it! They do all the hard work! I also got to put a little text into my crystal! It says "My little munchkins"!

The crystal I received really does make this house a home. Having my babies in 3D, lit up and smiling at me, makes this house that much more enjoyable. My boys have been gone all summer visiting their dad, but seeing that crystal sitting there reminded me that it's only 42 days and that they will be home soon!

Now it's your turn! One of my readers is going to win the same 3D crystal I received! That is a $188 value! Good luck to all!
