MakeABall + a Baseball Giveaway

If you need a great gift idea for the sports fan in your life, check out Make-A-Ball.

At Make-A-Ball, you can actually design and personalize your own ball.

When I first heard about it, I was a little unsure about how it would work, but it was actually pretty cool.  A couple of years ago, Kik played tball and she got the cutest baseball head trophy.  Which her little sister soon broke.  We couldn't fix it, but I thought that this could be the perfect thing to take its place.

The first step is to choose a ball.  You can pick from baseballs, softballs, basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, footballs, or even hockey pucks.  We choose a baseball of course.

Then you choose a layout and background pictures.  They have tons of pictures on the sidebar that are designed with your sport in mind.  All you have to do is click the picture, and then line it up using the guide.  

Then you can upload and add in your own pictures or text.  A lot of the backgrounds have spaces for pictures, which makes it super easy to use.  After all was said and done, we ended up with this

It's hard to tell because I took the picture on my phone, but the colors are bright and vibrant and the quality is pretty good.

I surprised my daughter with the ball when she got home from school today.  She put her hand over her heart, and said thank you so much for making this for me.  I love it.  and then my 3 year old told me that she can't wait to play tball so she can get one too.

To Buy - You can make your own baseball for just $25 on makeaball.com.  If you have a sports lover in your life, it's really a great way to show them your love this February.  And just for you, you can get 20% off your order for a limited time with code mab.20.ref
