All my bloggy friends are so generous in their giveaways they sponsor.

a personalized hand painted shot glass. JUST FOR YOU!

…thas how I roll.

Homemade edible goods can melt in the mail. So what’s better than a personalized hand painted bLyss Designs shot glass?

I will paint whatever you’d like on the above glass. In whatever colors your little heart desires. You’re welcome! šŸ™‚

Check out my Etsy site or the bLyss Designs Facebook Page for some inspiration. I’ve got lots of pictures of beer, wine, and shot glasses there.

display your diesel race accomplishments on a shot glass. or your fave team!

I’ll take on whatever design you wish. Give me something new to paint. šŸ™‚

It can be for you, or it can be for a gift for a friend! Any 21st birthdays coming up? šŸ˜‰

And, because I like ya, maybe I throw in the latest batch of my new and improved recipe for Maggie Mix!

In the mix, there’s now a little baking soda, vanilla extract, light maple syrup (as usual), and Splenda Brown Sugar blend.

if you're a granola or cereal monster like me, you'll LOVE Maggie Mix.

Ch-ch-check it out. And enter to win your own personalized shot glass and some Mag Mix.

What a great idea, girl! I love this! I think I would probably have one designed for my sister-in-law. She collects shot glasses from all over the place and I think she’d probably love one with her name on it!

5 Sable March 2, 2011 at 5:33 pm

What a great idea!! I’d probably have you design one for my mister since his birthday is in a month and I have NO ideas! As for the design…maybe his frat, or maybe his Cobra that he loves more than me?! haha.


6 Sable March 2, 2011 at 5:34 pm

OK I’m having trouble deciding between these two designs that I’ve titled…

OPTION 1: “Flamingo-Fanatic”
Flamingos…so many of them. So many of them that they look like a pink stripe all around the middle of the glass with orange legs going down to the bottom and little necks & heads above.
OPTION 2: “Flamingo Lover”
Flams in pairs – standing so that their necks make hearts – all around the glass. With their bodies around the middle, legs reaching to the bottom and little heads/necks towards the top.


9 Jacq March 2, 2011 at 5:52 pm

OK, I subscribed, and liked the Blyss designs on FBook, (can’t believe I hadn’t already!?) But I don’t have a blog, so I’ll Tweet about the contest and make a FBook status about it. BOOM. Substitution.

PS: Thanks for fixing it so that non-bloggers can comment. You’ll be seeing mah face (or that general picture they use) around here more often!


10 Parita @ myinnershakti March 2, 2011 at 6:12 pm

My shot glass would consist of part Bulldog (I went to the Univ. of GA for undergrad) and part Yellow Jacket (and I went to GaTech for grad school). And it would be painted in red and black and gold and white. I think all of my friends who went to either UGA or Tech would HATE me for it (major in state rivalry), but I think it’s a fun idea! šŸ™‚


11 Kace March 2, 2011 at 7:58 pm

So cute! Hmm…. I’m thinking I’d like something Philly-based (sports, love sculpture, whatevs!) I’ll link back in my post tomorrow, too!

And re: your comment on my blog; I’ve been laughing about that quote all day! Stepbrothers was just on the other day…classic.


12 mmmstories March 2, 2011 at 9:21 pm

Love the idea!
I try to maintain a wondrous shot glass collection – despite many losses, drops and misplacements – so I always love a new, pretty one to add to the collection! Although, the little broski is having a 21st coming up so I need to find a present…What about a shot glass with a painted on tie or suit on one side and “Suit Up” on the other? šŸ™‚


13 Anastasia March 3, 2011 at 12:58 am

I feel like I’d be cheating if I tried to “enter”. But I just wanted to say that your glasses are the sh*t (<—no cursing, its not classy). love you!


14 Jenn @ Peas & Crayons March 3, 2011 at 1:06 am

ahhh fun! you’re so creative!

design idea/ hmm…. peas and crayons! hahaha – that’s totally what I would adore on my shot glass at least! <3


15 Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries March 3, 2011 at 11:55 am

17 alex March 3, 2011 at 12:12 pm

27 Freckled Foodie March 3, 2011 at 6:49 pm

If I were to win the shot glass, I would like it to be a design of my first race (rock n roll marathon on 3.27.11)! whoohoo, shots for all afterwards! ha!


31 littlehealthjunkie March 3, 2011 at 10:25 pm

Ooh what about an orange sunrise theme?!?! Orange is my fave color EVER! šŸ™‚


32 Molly March 3, 2011 at 10:55 pm

ooooo, you could design a “bride” shot glass for November 12, 2011 =) I will definitely need to use it that week!!

And I, like Jacq Jacq Allen, will tweet this contest!!



33 Christin@purplebirdblog March 4, 2011 at 12:28 am

I have you in my reader… does that count for subscribing?


36 happytalesblog March 4, 2011 at 1:07 am

OMG what a funnnn idea!! I actually collect shot glasses (was a crazy partier in college, not so much of a drinker anymore, but when I do.. it’s liquor!) Umm… hm. I’d have to think about what I’d want painted on it! Perhaps something Happy related? I think I’d give you a creative license to do your thang on it!


37 Cat@BudgetBlonde March 7, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Ooooh I will think of a good idea for the hubs. I tend to be found on the floor if I utilize a shot glass, lol!


38 squigglefloey March 7, 2011 at 8:24 pm

How about an “All I do is win” shotglass? haha


39 Rachel @ The Avid Appetite March 8, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Yay, love giveaways! And I love anything homemade. I could think of a million cool designs..perhaps an NY Giants one? Or one to match my blog? šŸ™‚


40 Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles March 9, 2011 at 12:43 am

I would have you design a shot glass that represents California – fresh produce, the ocean, mountains, wine – all that good stuff! šŸ™‚


41 Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun) March 10, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I would love something to do with college swimming and running. As a 2 sport athlete-you don’t find that very often. šŸ˜‰


42 Katelyn March 11, 2011 at 4:08 am

Giiirl I would get something with being legal finally, or becoming a college student! Aka a reason to celebrate:)


43 Katelyn March 11, 2011 at 4:08 am

I like it on Facebook!


44 Katelyn March 11, 2011 at 4:09 am

And babygirl I already subscribe!:)


45 Katherine: Unemployed March 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I’m entering but not giving you my ideas because I know I’ll get my hopes up. I really love shot glasses and wine glasses etc etc etc because I had to quit drinking for health reasons and love to have the paraphernalia for irony sake.

…it’s embarrassing but i think it’s so funny to carry glasses around with water and pretend to be boozing… next stop? faux-kelia


46 Stephanie March 14, 2011 at 3:18 pm

I subscribed to your blog!


47 Stephanie March 14, 2011 at 3:19 pm

I would love a turtle running on the glass! šŸ™‚


48 mickiruns March 15, 2011 at 4:46 pm

OH! I can’t believe it took me this long to enter. I’d get the Air Defense mascot for my husband. He’s done so much in the Army, in such a short amount of time – I’m so proud of him, and feel like he’d love this!!


49 what katie's baking March 15, 2011 at 8:45 pm

oohhh!!! i would like a cupcake… or something… on mine!
no… how about my name?
i don’t know i can’t decide! lol :o)

i follow you on facebook!


51 what katie's baking March 15, 2011 at 8:46 pm

i subscribed by email
because your site rocks… duh


52 kEndra March 15, 2011 at 10:29 pm

I’ve contacted you about ordering a glass before – so AS you know I’m extremely indecisive!! šŸ™‚ I think for a shot-glass though – something SUPER sassy is in the makings!! Girly, fun, and feisty! Maybe even letting YOU decide and experiment – since you are the CLEAR creative one! šŸ˜‰ lol


53 kEndra March 15, 2011 at 10:30 pm

and p.s. – i had already had you “LIKED” on facebook!! šŸ˜‰


54 tknologlvr March 15, 2011 at 10:30 pm

Liked blyss designs on FB!


55 kEndra March 15, 2011 at 10:31 pm

i don’t have a blog either – but i’ll get the word out about yours ASAP – and the best i can! šŸ™‚
