Monogrammed Tablet + Intel Tablet Giveaway!

This post and giveaway are brought to you by Intel.

I have often wished that I could have a personal assistant to help me on my game during hectic weeks, someone that could help me keep track of appointments, practices, games and such, as well as allowing me a bit of “me” time in the midst of it all. When I received a new Samsung Galaxy Tab3 on my doorstep a few weeks ago, I honestly never imagined this little device would turn out to be that assistant, all wrapped up in one compact, accessible package.

I can start my day by checking out my appointments and to-do list on my calendar, followed by a quick run through my favorite social sites. Because this device is lightning-quick, there is no tedious waiting for the information I need. It’s all right there with the swish of a finger! When I want to prepare a meal, I can use my tablet to display my favorite recipes, and because the Galaxy Tab3 has a feature that can sense when you are actually looking at the screen, it won’t go to sleep when I’m right in the middle of reading the next ingredient in the dish. And, when I’m ready to collapse in a heap in bed at the end of another productive day, I can catch up on the day’s latest news and events before checking out my calendar to see what the next day has in store. I honestly don’t know how I ever did without this device.

It is so rare that I find a tool so useful and so completely indispensable to my day that I reserve it just for myself, but this is one of those. Our running joke around the house has been that the new Galaxy Tab is “Mama’s Tablet,” so I decided to do a little DIY project to go along with that and add some pizzazz to my new toy. With the help of my die cutting machine, I cut my monogram from some adhesive vinyl…

Use adhesive vinyl to add a pretty monogram to the back of a tablet computer.

…and I affixed it to the back of the tablet. I love the pop of color and personality this little touch added! And I doubt with my monogram emblazoned on the back that there will ever be any doubt to whom it belongs to. 🙂

So now, the back of the tablet is all decked out…

Use adhesive vinyl to add a pretty monogram to the back of a tablet computer.


…while the bright, pretty screen is ready for action! I love it.

    Who doesn’t love a new toy? :). I’m sure there are lots of ways this tablet can help keep me a bit more organized. Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. Kasey Rawlings April 3, 2014 at 7:49 am #

    It would be nice to have something more accessible than our home computer!

  3. Melissa Draper April 3, 2014 at 7:53 am #

    I would love this to keep my two littlest kids entertained while the three older ones play six soccer games a week for the next two months! (And maybe keep me entertained a little, too… that’s a LOT of soccer to actually watch and pay attention to…)

  4. Lin M. April 3, 2014 at 8:06 am #

    I would love one! My grandson has managed to completely fill up my current tablet with his games.

  5. kristi April 3, 2014 at 8:15 am #

    I would LOVE to win this tablet! I’m actually trying to raise money for my dad with a serious health condition, so I would probably “regift” this in the form of an auction to help with his medical expenses. 🙂

  6. Amber E. April 3, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    OMGoodness I’d love one of these! I SO need a personal assistant and this would be much better than trying to use my phone for everything. I think it would work very well for recipes too! Your monogram looks schnazzy. 😀 Thanks so much for the chance to win! 🙂

  7. Beth G. April 3, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    How awesome! I would love a tablet to use while I am baking and making dinner. A bonus is all the social networking that I could do as well! Thanks for the giveaway!


  8. Mollie April 3, 2014 at 8:38 am #

    I love the idea of “Mama’s Tablet”! In fact, I would give the tablet to my mother. With four children and six grandsons underfoot on any given day, my mother could use some “me time”. If she had her own tablet she could catch up on emails for work/play, surf the web, or pin ideas to her heart’s content!

  9. Brandi M. April 3, 2014 at 8:43 am #

    This is just what I need to schedule my appointments, organize all of my PTA activities and events. All the while looking super cute with the monogram on the back 🙂

  10. Alisha April 3, 2014 at 9:00 am #

    Fabulous prize today! I would love one of these because my computer is six years old and the color of the keys are starting to come off because of so much use. I am so ready to update my technology! 🙂

  11. Rosie Lopez April 3, 2014 at 9:03 am #

    This would be so helpful!!!!!! With an assistant I would be able to keep on track during my weeks plans.i would also use it to top display my recipes when I bake. This tablet would make my days much easier.

  12. wendy westberry April 3, 2014 at 9:14 am #

    I really need this personal assistant! My desktop and laptop computers are needing to be upgraded and this would be perfect! I could use it to keep up with my appointments as well as using it on the go to surf and work on silhouette cameo projects! Thank you so much for a chance to win this great personal assistant! Fingers crossed!:)

  13. Linda Thompson April 3, 2014 at 9:16 am #

    I would use this for travel and shows. Could really use this!

  14. Melissa Brown April 3, 2014 at 9:29 am #

    I would love to win this so my granddaughter can use it this summer when she’s staying with me. That way she can use it to get ahead in her studying and be more than ready for 2nd grade.

  15. Catherine April 3, 2014 at 9:29 am #

    My husband needs to get rid of our laptop (the thing is basically virus city & super slow), but he needs to get a new piece of tech so that he can keep up with the office when he is at home. Just this morning, I was trying to convince him that a tablet is the way to go. I love that it would be easy for him to work anywhere in our home … and he could easily take it with him.

    Thanks for the chance!

  16. Sandy April 3, 2014 at 9:45 am #

    I would love to Win The Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet! I would Love to Use This in My Kitchen For Recipe Organizing! I’m sure I would use it for a Lot More Too!

  17. holly young April 3, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    I would love to win this tablet. I am on the communications team at my church. Everyone else on the team has laptops and tablets except me. I do all my work on my desktop or using my smart phone on the fly if I need to. It would be so nice to have something functional to take to the meetings so I can discuss our website (which we are overhauling) online documents. It would be great to be able to take notes on something other than a scrap of paper which I tend to lose!


  18. Barbara April 3, 2014 at 9:47 am #

    Thank you for thinking of us! Now we can “play” too!

  19. TerryKes April 3, 2014 at 9:49 am #

    We have a computer in our living room that seems to activate a magnet to both my husband and I – at the same time. I need something portable that I can use for tutorials where I craft and sew, something I check my favorite social sites – Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and emails, something that I’ve never been able to do but would love to – have an on-line subscription to a couple of my favorite mags. THEN, I’d love to make a sweet cover for it! 🙂

  20. Linda Hofacker April 3, 2014 at 9:51 am #

    What couldn’t I do with this tablet ~ I need something to keep track of everything in my day so my scattered mind doesn’t forget! What a great opportunity to keep me looking like I remembered everything! 🙂

  21. Sharon April 3, 2014 at 10:16 am #

    This tablet would be great for a working care giver for both of my parents. I handle the checking and writing bills, making appointments and tracking medications. I could actually take it with me and put the appointments directly into the tablet. It is very hard to remind them to put on the fridge so when I come by I will have a copy. This would truly be awesome. Thank you so much for the information. Your website has given me a lot of ideas. I think this tablet would help me implement them.

  22. Kristina April 3, 2014 at 10:19 am #

    I’m a new mom. Trying to stay updated while I’m always on the go is hard with my husband’s laptop that I steal regularly. We’ve gotten rid of cable TV, I’d use my tablet to keep up on the TV shows I’m missing, cook up fabulously wonderful healthy recipes, and learn to potty train… 😀

  23. Jenna April 3, 2014 at 10:26 am #

    I would love to have a new tablet. I would use it for anything and everything creative!

  24. Debbie Boswell April 3, 2014 at 10:39 am #

    Been wanting and needing a tablet for a while. Would love to win!!

  25. Brenda April 3, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    I’d love to have it to use for my daily schedules…but mostly for research & games for my 2 granddaughters. We could sit together to look at ideas of things to make together or just have fun playing games. Of course I could always use it to view Pinterest and your Blog as well as others. Thanks for the opportunity!

  26. Angie April 3, 2014 at 11:30 am #

    I love that it does not shut down while using a recipe. That drives me nuts…It would be nice to not have to share the pad for once. Also that baby would work with my wireless printer..now I have to get out the laptop to print something I find on the pad. I’m loving the monogram..another reason to get one of those machines….someday.

  27. Jess April 3, 2014 at 11:39 am #

    This beautiful tablet will help me keep track of my Etsy store and more.

  28. Nancy April 3, 2014 at 11:58 am #

    I have never had a tablet! I would love to use it for so many things!

  29. MaryB April 3, 2014 at 12:08 pm #

    I would love to win this for my hubby. He has nothing to use at home and has been wanting a tablet for ages. Great giveaway-thanks for the chance to win.

  30. Glenda K Beckham April 3, 2014 at 12:12 pm #

    I would love to win this! Why? Because it’s small and compact and I could take it from room to room, even in the car. There are plenty of hot spots out there. I would use it to check my email, surf the web and keep my to-do list organized. But I would use it mainly to read all my sewing blogs and keep all my tutorials organized. Thank you so much for the chance to win! I have entered many many giveaway’s and never win anything. : ( Maybe this time! : ). Thank you again for the chance to win! Glenda

  31. Melissa S April 3, 2014 at 12:15 pm #

    This would be wonderful in assisting me towards completing my BSN while giving more time to craft!

  32. TINA April 3, 2014 at 12:25 pm #

    What a cool and much needed tool for sure. I am a busy mom of four and this would be a sweet treat to keep me and ALL my appointments coordinated. I mean my present system of 5 calendars posted through out the house still doesn’t keep everything in check.

    I would love to win this tablet.

    thanks for the chance to win

  33. Crystal April 3, 2014 at 12:31 pm #

    I tried to make a monogram for my laptop, but the vinyl I had didn’t adhere to my cover. Did you use Silhouette’s vinyl or an off-brand? What font did you use because I love it!!

  34. tanya April 3, 2014 at 1:39 pm #

    I would love to own this! I could see looking at my knitting charts on here, pinning, and my making my crafty life so much more efficient!

  35. Kelly Galambus April 3, 2014 at 2:20 pm #

    I would love this tablet! It would be so useful for planning my day – much better than handwritten notes that get lost!

  36. Amy DeCesare April 3, 2014 at 3:10 pm #

    I have to agree that it would be fun to have a personal assistant – especially one as cute as this one, that I could take along with me almost anywhere. Promise me I’d be a bit more organized, please!

  37. Vianet A. April 3, 2014 at 3:55 pm #

    Awesome giveaway!! What I won’t do with this tablet!! I would stop using my smartphone that’s for sure.

  38. Kathy E. April 3, 2014 at 4:47 pm #

    I would looove to win this tablet. I would use it for my job as I’m a long-term substitute teacher til the end of this school year. It would help me so much keep my lesson plans, student data and notes, and research websites all in one place. Then I wouldn’t have to lug around my tote bag filled with files and planbooks as I go back and forth to two schools.

  39. Shirley Lupton April 3, 2014 at 6:05 pm #

    Oh what a gift this would be to win this. I need to get organized for my crafts, receipes, etc. Did you hook it up to a Silhouette machine? I know my chance of winning is next to nil. The only way to enter is through this e-mail. I love your blog.

  40. theresa krier April 3, 2014 at 7:25 pm #

    i know tablets are all the rage, all of my grandkids have one & they want me to get one to keep in touch easier & quicker.but i have to be honest i have researched but cannot decide which brand would be the best for me, i guess if i win this one ,i won’t have to. thank you so much for the chance to win happy spring to everyone!

  41. Patty Lee Vasil April 3, 2014 at 8:10 pm #

    What a wonderful give away. I love Pinterest, Recipes, Genealogy – how nice just to sit in a comfy chair and plan how to spend my day. Being retired we have doctors appts, family visits with sons and grandchildren, friends to meet for lunch and dinner, – what a way to plan.

  42. Colleen April 3, 2014 at 8:51 pm #

    Oh let me count the ways I would use this beauty……to many to name but reading my favorite blogs and Pinterest would be at the top. To do lists, Project Lists, Fabric accountability, pics and the list goes on.

  43. Kelly Domingue April 4, 2014 at 5:43 am #

    Would love to win this. I have a Kindle Fire now but it has been taken over by
    my son.

  44. Jennifer Zvosechz April 4, 2014 at 6:01 am #

    I would love to win this prize! I’m pregnant with my first child, and work a full time job, a part time job, and own a home-based business. I would use the tablet to keep it all together. Between work, preparing for baby, and some home improvement projects we had already planned for this spring, it would be nice to have a convenient way to keep track of everything. Thanks for the opportunity to win an awesome prize…I love following you on fb and reading your blog!!

  45. Angie April 4, 2014 at 8:16 am #

    With four busy kids this could be a lifesaver. I think we would all use it

  46. Beth Ward April 4, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    The personalization looks fantastic!!I love the monogram and I want that on my iPad. What source for fonts did you use? And what were they printed from. I got my tablet for Christmas and I’m surprised at how much I use it. My laptop is bulky and heavy and I just pop my iPad in my purse and go. I like that I can use it anywhere I can use my cell.

  47. Donna Huisinga April 4, 2014 at 12:14 pm #

    Sound like the perfect tool to use for work and play. Can just see myself on my comfy couch with this on my lap. Oh yeah!

  48. Maria Wicks April 4, 2014 at 2:20 pm #

    Ooooh I would love to win this!!! It would be so great to have it in my craft room for when I need to look something so that I dont have to keep running back and forth to the computer in our family room.

  49. Sabiha April 4, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    I would be amazing to win this tablet, I would use it for pretty much anything! not only craft making but easy access to everything !

  50. Julie Cutshaw April 4, 2014 at 7:29 pm #

    I would like to win the Intel tablet because it looks so small & easy to carry. And I’d love using the features of the camera to send in emails and the ability to surf the web on the go. Awesome giveaway thanks!

  51. L Callor April 5, 2014 at 9:11 am #

    I teach piano and would love to use this with my students. I have been researching all the different ways this tablet could be used. Not only with the administrative part and keeping me organized but with using helpful applications to reinforce concepts with my students. It would be so wonderfully.

  52. Kendra April 6, 2014 at 1:33 am #

    Cute Monogram!!
    I need a tablet! I am probably the last person on earth without one lol 🙂
    I would use it every night in the kitchen so I don’t have to read recipes off my phone 🙂


  53. D Stepp April 6, 2014 at 1:34 am #

    Simply put…I need all the help I can get. 🙂

  54. Jessica Pierre'auguste April 6, 2014 at 11:03 am #

    Wow! What a great giveaway and post about the tablet. I would love to have a tablet of my own to use for recipes in the kitchen as well as sewing tutorials in my studio. Also, I imagine I would take it to work so I could work on my blog in my downtime.

  55. Heike April 7, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

    I would love this tablet! It would be so great as a counselor when working with my little kiddos!

  56. Krista April 8, 2014 at 12:26 pm #

    I would love to win this! Our laptop has basically become a desktop model because the battery is shot and it would be nice to be able to use for recipes in the kitchen!

  57. lori April 8, 2014 at 12:34 pm #

    I would love to have it to use for work!!

  58. Amanda R April 8, 2014 at 12:39 pm #

    We don’t have any type of tablet and would love to have one for the family. Of course my girls would use it for games and fun things, maybe a little school research. I would use it for Pinterest as well. And finishing my school, research, emails – all that good stuff. 😉

  59. Kellie Hill Socia April 8, 2014 at 12:40 pm #

    I would love to have this tablet – but, if I win, I will give it to my son. He’ll be moving to attend a University in the Fall to finish up his bachelor’s degree. Oh, and I love the monogram for it too!

  60. Sarah G April 8, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

    I would love to have this tablet for our family. My daughter has a speech problem, and I’d love to try using a tablet and apps to supplement her speech therapy.

  61. Jessica April 8, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

    I would love to have a tablet! It would help me become better organized, personally and professionally. I would be able to use it in the kitchen to try new recipes which would make my husband happy. It would be an awesome addition to my life.

  62. kw April 8, 2014 at 1:50 pm #

    My laptop has given out and I can’t justify a new one. This would save me trips to the library and the roomies ire as if borrow tech less.

  63. NOREEN MAGUIRE TERLECKI April 8, 2014 at 2:43 pm #

    i would love one…i would use it for everything i could….it would be awesome to win one….please and thank you..

    Pinterest projects and activities for the summer

  65. Whitney P. April 8, 2014 at 8:01 pm #

    It would be great to scan my textbooks as images and upload them to this tablet instead of carrying 5 books around all day!

  66. Chacoy April 8, 2014 at 10:20 pm #

    I am a single mom who is currently working full time, going to school full time and a lot of my classes require some type of electronic device in class as well as for homework and this would be perfect for it-not heavy, portable and easily accessible for both business and pleasure without going to the library!

  67. Celeste April 9, 2014 at 9:37 am #

    I would love to have something to help me organize my day. Between running two businesses and all my training for upcoming races I have lots of things to keep track of.

  68. Sandy N April 10, 2014 at 8:53 am #

    I would give it to my hubby for his birthday. He needs one badly! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  69. Michelle Willms April 10, 2014 at 9:01 pm #

    I am a book reviewer and blogger; I desperately need a tool such as this to help me with scheduling, tracking emails, books, giveaways, and all other aspects of blogging and reviewing. It can get fairly complicated and I can get frustrated. My present laptop is constantly freezing and locking up on me. What a nice change it would be to have an Intel Tablet to simplify my life. michelle_willms at yahoo dot com.
