I Bleed Maize N' Blue

DISCLAIMER: This post contains giveaways, so you might wanna keep on reading.
This year, the University of Michigan, my alma mater, had a roughabominable football season. But, everyone has their days, years, whatever. And, thus, I remain a Wolverine fan.
So when Asgard Press sent me one of their eco-friendly vintage U of M calendars, I gleamed with joy.
Asgard Press has been creating these vintage-looking calendars, books and stationery for almost a decade. But just recently, the company has gone green by using 100% recycled paper and soy-based inks in their products. They still looks sweet, only their earth friendly too.
And since 'tis the season to be jolly, I am going to give away one 2009University of Michigan Calendar and one 2009 Michigan State University Calendar (see photos above). Perhaps you're a fan, or know of somebody else who would have this on their holiday wish list.
There's a two step process to enter yourself into this one.
1) You gotta comment on this post (you don't gotta use your real name, but at least leave us a little love) (Twogirlsgogreen.blogspot.com) 2) You gotta shoot me an e-mail (GawkyGreen@gmail.com) telling me which calendar drawing you want to be entered into. Do you bleed Maize n' blue, or are you a true Sparty?
I'll be pulling names out of a hat on December 9.
If you see a cool product that Asgard Press has and want to order it ASAP for the holidays, you can get a 10% discount by using our promo code "TWOGIRLSGOGREEN" or by clicking this, which will automatically fill in the appropriate fields when you go to make your purchase. And don't worry, if you are not a U of M fan, but adore another team, they have plenty to choose from...yes, even for you Buckeyes.
Here's a little more info on the vintage football calendars themselves...well first, what I like about this particular company is that the product existed and still exists regardless of the fact that it's green. But it's a quadruple-added bonus that it also happens to be green. The product itself has so much going for it...like the fact that each month's photo is a reproduction of an actual game-day program cover from the 1900-1960s. Since these are officially licensed products, part of the money goes back to the school. AND each page is perforated so that you can rip out the page and do something with it other than put it in your garbage when it turns 2010. I am thinking about making coasters out of mine afterward.
So enter the contest. You know you want one.
