giveaway :: shapeways 3D printing $100 gift card

About.com recently hosted a contest in conjunction with Shapeways that ended in early November and 48 people won the item that gained the most votes.  Were you one of the winners?  Probably not, right?  Well I have some good news: you could win a $100 Shapeways gift card!

I was asked to participate in the contest as one of the About.com Home & Garden contributing writers and I had to submit my favorite Shapeways item that became one of the items that participants could vote for.  After scouring the Shapeways website and shop for what seemed like hours (note: it’s easy to get sucked in … people create some amazing stuff!) I picked the square platter.

I admit that my reasons for finally picking this item were purely selfish: I wanted whatever I picked to be functional, aesthetically pleasing, and unique.  And this square platter met all of the requirements.  So much in fact that after I received a $100 gift card from Shapeways, I decided to order one for myself.  And guess what?  You can too!

Or some of the other pretty cool stuff on their website.  Seriously, I have already set up a whole list of “favorites“.

And what exactly did I decide to use my square platter for, you ask?  It might seem strange but I use it to hold fruit and veggies on our kitchen counter.  It’s perfect for that reason and here’s why: the white nylon plastic material actually matches perfectly with our white counters; it keeps the fruit about 1/2” off the counter so that they don’t develop soft spots and possibly stain the counter; and the fruit is no longer cramped up in a small bowl (meaning I can see what we have vs. fruit getting lost at the bottom of the bowl and uneaten).
