NOTE: This post is not sponsored. Well. Except by me.
It feels like it’s been a thousand years since I gave away something. Or, you know, a month. I love giving away somethings.
Cue Rachel from Rachel’s Table.
No, no. I’m not giving away Rache. Nice try. She’s mine.
I saw her on Monday (we have totally taken our friendship to the next level), and you
can should must check out the rest of our adventure on her fabulous blog.
She gave me a fantastic Christmas present (see? Next. Level). “The kind of gift,” I told her, “that makes every day better!”
Those are custom ‘stache glasses tile coasters! Yes! Handmade just for Go Jules Go! For when I put down my vodka / champagne / beer! Well, ha ha, I’m sure I can find another use for them!
Rachel explained that she worked with Julie Maida, a talented artist out of Fredericksburg, VA, to make these coasters. Julie owns
the best first name ever maidasomeart, and specializes in wedding gifts and nursery art. She describes her work as “affordable, (mostly) utilitarian art.”
Julie’s been featured in Stitch magazine and locals can find her at Ponshop Studio in Fredericksburg. She also blogs at juliemaida.com.
Just a few of Julie’s treasures:
I took one look (okay, lots of looks) at my new coasters and thought, “Wouldn’t it be amazeballs to give away something like this on my blog?” I contacted Julie and here we are!
Custom artwork from Julie Maida (value: up to $40 US incl. S/H). That’s right! Work with Julie to design something that’s allll you, baby. Coasters, wine charms, jewelry, wall art, bowls, sculpture, trivets, etc. Once you decide what you want, Julie will work her magic and then ship your prize to you!
How to Win
Tell me, in the comments section below (or email me), a favorite “drunk person” story – you don’t have to be the drunkard. If you are, it’s okay, because you have a chance to class it up with some custom art.

Thanks, Julie and Rache!!!! (I’m sorry. That fourth exclamation point was uncalled for.)
