I have always thought of noting anniversaries, dates, memorable post numbers and all of that with a give away of some sort. But somehow those dates blow past each and every time, and I realize - oh! Another year! Oh! 250, 500 (or 550) posts...weeks late. So I decided to do a give away just because. Just because is a good reason! I also like to see who is out there - while I love comments from those who are familiar, I also enjoy new comments too, and this is a nice excuse to say 'HI'! So old friends or lurkers - leave a comment!
I pulled out the sewing machine again last week and made a few gardening notebook covers. I like having a nice cover for my notebook obsession...they are great for unlined sketchbooks, lined journals or notebooks. They just look nice, keep things together, and when a notebook is full, you can pop in a new one. This one holds a standard 8.5 x 11 size notebook.
I'm not a professional seamstress, so you will have to forgive me my tiny imperfections, but as it is meant to go with you in the garden (or the cafe) as you write, draw, scribble and dream, it will pick up the earth along the way and develop a character all its own. I will also be adding a surprise to the give away box in addition to the garden notebook cover!
To enter the drawing, comment on this post. I'll do a random drawing this Wednesday, March 11, so be sure to comment by 5PM CST on the 11th!
