Our First Anniversary & First Giveaway! {Closed}

'Origrami Giveaway' by Endlessly Enraptured #endlesslyenraptured #prints #instagram #origrami #giveaway

We have been together for nearly 6 years and while we love surprising one another, we are horrible at it. We always end up giving each other gifts early because we just can’t stand the anticipation. This year was different though. We thought it would be fun to stick with the traditional first anniversary gift: paper. Nothing too big (we are saving to move AND for our trip to London in September) but no less thoughtful.

I have to say, my sweetheart knows me well. He surprised me with a collection of books illustrated (and in some cases, written) by Jon Klassen, a favorite illustrator of mine. You see, I graduated from PNCA as an illustration major and it has always been a dream of mine to illustrate a children’s book (I have quite the collection of them). When I opened the beautifully wrapped gift box to discover the books, my jaw dropped. I was so touched. We laid in bed and read them aloud, giggling and fawning over each and every drawing. Have you read them? Now all I need to do is have Mr. Klassen sign them…

Cory and I are HUGE Instagram fans. We have talked about getting some of our favorites printed in the past, but never got around to it. Then I found Origrami. Created by Sydney based husband and wife team, Jeff and Betsy, they wanted to combine their two passions: craft and Instagram and thus Origrami was born. The front of the prints resemble polaroids (another favorite thing of ours) and on the back includes a map of where the photo was taken if geotagged! Making tangible prints of our first year as husband and wife? Perfect. Cory was completely surprised and we were both blown away by how beautifully they turned out. I’m so happy to announce that Origrami has kindly offered to give TWO readers each a set of their own!

    Ooo, We move to London just in time for the last day of fashion week!!! When will you be there?! Also, this is the most creative and my favorite version of printing instagram photos that I’ve seen yet. Like you two, we still haven’t gotten around to printing our instagram photos and we would love to win these!!!

    We would definitely print this photo, Ryan serenading to me on a canoe in front of Mt Hood right before he proposed!!

    I’ve also shared the photo on Instagram and Facebook and will be posting on my tumblr (le-daisies.tumblr.com)

    It’s my boyfriend of 3 years birthday and I was planning to get some Origrami photos printed but if I win this giveaway I’ll be able to spoil him!

    I’d definitely print this photo of him and I when we went out for my birthday!

  • Madison Kitchen / 5 June 2013 11:20

    Am so grateful to have stumbled upon this beautiful page of yours! Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring. Thank you for hosting such a fantastic prize!
    This is my photo I want to get origrami’d!! This is my motivation to crawl out of bed on these cold winter Melbourne mornings. The knowledge that summer is only 6 months away and these beautiful nights at my local beach are not just a far off distant memory, but more a promise of things to come My bliss.

    http://instagram.com/p/MQOBFmokxr/

    • endlesslyenraptured / 5 June 2013 6:42

      I’m grateful that you found us Madison! Gosh, laying by the beach by lantern light sounds so peaceful…

  • Vickie / 5 June 2013 1:07

    such beautiful gifts – I love well illustrated childrens books 🙂

    • endlesslyenraptured / 5 June 2013 6:17

      I used to go to school just a few block away from Powell’s City of Books. I spent hours there and build up quite the collection of my own at home.

  • Eleonora / 5 June 2013 1:46

    Those illustrated childrens books are so precious. I love to collect them too, you know. I love buying a book for my nieces (they are 6 and 3 years old), but sometimes I end up keeping what I’ve bought for them because I’ve fallen in love with a book. Am I a bad aunt? XD

    Talking about the giveaway: first of all, thanks! I know Origrami and dreamed of having a few pictures printed!
    Here’s what I love seeing printed: http://statigr.am/viewer.php#/detail/360769615896774957_32099609
    My little border collie, Cora!

    • endlesslyenraptured / 5 June 2013 6:19

      Hahaha! I think if I had nieces or nephews I would probably do the same thing! Oh, I just love that instagram of Cora. She looks like such a sweetheart.

  • Eleonora / 5 June 2013 1:47

    I’m now a fan of Origrami on Facebook and already a fan of Endlessly Enraptured on Facebook 🙂

  • Kristen / 5 June 2013 2:11

    Happy Anniversary! I found your blog from the Origrami Facebook page and love it! In fact, we are fellow Portlanders.

    I’ve been following Origrami on Facebook, and I absolutely love their prints. In fact, they are the reason that I established an Instagram account to be honest. I wanted to capture my year in photos and display these both at home and my blog.

    I’ve now followed you on Facebook, Twitter (and Origram), retweeted your tweet for the contest, and shared your post on Facebook.

    If I were to print one Instagram image, it would be this image:
    http://instagram.com/p/XLfAvTlGlS/

    • endlesslyenraptured / 5 June 2013 6:24

      Thank you so much Kristen! I love the idea of having that instagram printed. It seriously looks like an abstract piece of art!

  • Kristen / 5 June 2013 2:15

    I also found you on Pinterest and followed some of your boards! I see you are also gluten-free? There is no better place to live than Portland for GF peeps like us 🙂

    • endlesslyenraptured / 5 June 2013 6:25

      Ah, that’s awesome!! We are seriously lucky to be gluten free and living in Portland. I couldn’t imagine living somewhere that it just wasn’t accepted.

  • Harpreet / 5 June 2013 3:28

    have a great anniversary guys – an origrami giveaway fits in perfectly (and meaningfully so!) with the paper theme. here’s an instagram i’d love to see printed –

    http://instagram.com/p/Z53GqjEjDH/

    its a night shot of the beautifully chaotic railway station at new delhi, the city i’ve been living in for three years now. shall make for a nice print memoir i think!

  • BoycalledBen / 5 June 2013 7:31

    Already doing so, done, done and done.

    Congratulations guys! It’s great to see two people so happy together.

    I couldn’t decide between http://instagram.com/p/UOqIRkIWCv/ and this http://instagram.com/p/aEKeuWoWCZ/ but decided to go for the latter, as the story behind it means so much more than the first.

    • endlesslyenraptured / 6 June 2013 12:13

      Aw, thank you so much Ben! Both of those instagrams are hauntingly beautiful! And lucky for you, if you win you get a whole set so you can just print them both!

    and i hope it’s not cheating but this one is another similar concept http://instagram.com/p/YoMK5iuZ_A/ that would be a blessing for many years to come to have in the form of orgrami goodness as well.
    p.s. many happy returns on your special 1st anniversary. we just celebrated ours too. what blisses & kisses!

    Oh, I love this for so many reasons! What a brilliant idea, so creative and the prints are just about the cutest thing ever. I love that it’s a husband + wife duo too. 🙂 That just tops it off for me.

    I’d probably get this photo (http://instagram.com/p/Z3DZFejMFq/) printed because it pretty much sums up my time living here in California. This is me, happy. Perfectly content + blissfully in love with nature.
