Family Keepsake Giveaway ($50 Value) CLOSED

Mother of 3 Cindy Gillingham shares her passion for arts and crafts, home decorating and preserving family memories every day through her small business,  Sweetprints Ceramic Keepsakes.  Popular with her local, Sacramento area clients, clay impressions of kids’ feet, thumbs or handprints are transformed into artistic pieces that her clients prominently display in their homes as treasured family keepsakes.









Yet Cindy also customizes ceramic pieces, which are also popular with her clients who don’t live locally. Whether it’s a special family birthday plate or birth announcement, Cindy works closely with each of her clients to make sure their piece has the details unique to their family alone.



Sweetprints Ceramic Keepsakes is offering one lucky winner a one-of-a-kind 9inch square plate that will be specially crafted and designed per your specification.  Allow 3-4 weeks from order to delivery.  If the winner lives in the Sacramento area, Cindy will offer a clay impression piece in lieu of the ceramic plate if preferred.  Check out more selections and ideas.


This prize has a $50 value
