gift revealed

your close
getting closer
The view-master toy with the 3-d images + your personal photos = retro badass.
I, as no surprise, gave brandon a christmas gift early and was so excited to share it with you all.

One of the employees told me some of there recent request had been for pictures with 
"will you marry me"  messages. how cool!

If you want to give (or get) a badass gift too click ME.
