Birthday Give Away!

Finally, I've finished my Christmas crafting and baking. Now I can turn my thoughts to the New Year and my.... SIXTY-FIFTH birthday! January 4th.  And I'm celebrating this year with a few gift aways. I have several items in mind and will be listing them in the next few days.

Today, I'm starting by giving away one of my hand-made spiral journals.

This sweet journal is approximately 4.5 x 5 inches, the chipboard front and back are covered with paste papers I made last October in Oregon. (See old post.)

Heavy weight art paper inside will support light washes, pencils, and most drawing tools.

 All you have to do to enter is
leave a comment and join my site.
I'll be choosing randomly on my birthday
(Jan 4th) and will mail packages that day. (Of course I'll include some random goodies too!)

  2. Thank you Janie... I love what you have written on your blog:
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our Wings,
    We continue to FLY.
    On a Broomstick,
    We are Flexible like that.

    Thank for that!
