Sponsored Post: AstroBrights wicked awesome paper

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
So this is my first foray into the realm of sponsored blog posts.  I'm really excited about the opportunity to share some amazing products with you from a unique perspective.
AstroBrights paper, from Neenah Paper, is blindingly bright and vibrantly colored specialty paper that comes in 23 different bold colors.  I have never before worked with paper that pops as much as these do.  I have browsed through them in the store and plotted magical ways to make use of them:
  • Add some color magic to basic everyday lists
  • Use the easel pads or poster boards to add a creative interactive element to circle casting
  • Color code people's name-tags for big participatory rituals
  • Add some brightness to BOS pages and notes with colored filler paper
  • Witchy family crafts galore (see more about this below)
Oh, and did I mention that many of their products "are FSC® certified and meet the mark of responsible forestry. Specified colors are Green Seal™ certified and contain 30% recycled post-consumer fiber."

In addition to having bright and vibrant paper, AstroBrights is holding a sweepstakes to give $30,000 of supplies to a lucky winner's favorite school.  Now many of you don't know but my Mother is a teacher and I do have a little one who is school age and I know schools can always use additional supplies.  This sweepstakes could free up $30,000 of the school budget for other things.  The "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes is an amazing opportunity.
  • What can you win?: The school of your choice wins $30,000 in supplies but the winner of the sweepstakes also wins a $500 Visa gift card (details here)
  • How do you enter?: 'Like' Astrobrights on Facebook and then head to the "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes, approve the app and fill out some basic contact information
  • How do you get extra entries?: Every week you can head back to "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes and fill out some simple survey questions for additional chances to win!

One of the ways the AstroBright community of facebook brightens up each other's day is the family-friendly "Make Something Astrobright" design challenges.  I would love to see what my amazing witchy friends can do posted on Astrobrights Facebook page.  The community shares on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other social media channels (using the hashtag #goastrobrights) and I would LOVE to see a witchy presence with Wheel of the Year or Sabbat crafts represented!

Please swing over to Astrobrights on Facebook, enter to win $30,500 worth of prizes at the "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes and show some witch craftiness in the design challenges.

    13 Gods Challenge? Uhmmm... I must improve my male drawings. Ehehehe!! But, anyway it could be a cool challenge. We could start it towards the end of September, because I need some time to reaorganize my etsy shop and finish my "secret project". :)) I'll write you soon. Hugs!
