750! a giveaway...

Guess what? This is my 750th post on this blog! It snuck up on me but I am prepared. I have been making journals (see below) and journaling like crazy so I have lots of pages to bind up into a fun special "giveaway journal". Just leave your comment on this post and I will draw a name sometime next week.

Now for the good stuff.. pictures!!
The following is a journal I made for my soul sister Lora. Lora lives back east, is the mother of 2 beautiful boys and is currently battling MDS (marrow cancer). It hasn't been an easy road for her and proves to be a difficult road ahead so I thought I'd make her a little something as a pick me up. I hope to get it off to her in the mail tomorrow with a lot of love and good wishes..


This second stripy journal is headed to my Etsy shop in a few days. I love playing with all the different papers and pictures.






There are lots of flaps and pockets to play with and plenty of room for journaling or artwork. Hope you have enjoyed these peeks.. Don't forget to leave a comment. Good luck :) xo

    I was checking out my favorite blogs when I came across yours (Thanks, Kelly!!). Your journals are gorgeous!! I am taking an on-line class from Mary Ann Moss to learn how to make my own journal and I hope mine turns out as beautiful as yours!!
