covetable chronicle: botanical garland by rifle paper co.

October 26, 2012  /  covetable chronicle, giveaway

I’m rather excited to share another giveaway from Chronicle Books! Today we have a set of Botanical Garlands designed by Rifle Paper Co. I love this concept, as it’s reusable and you don’t have to stick to just standard greetings. I for one, would make a banner that read “Oh Happy Day” with this fun little kit. Rifle has partnered with Chronicle for several brilliant collaborations, I am quite fond of the entire Botanicals series and have gotten much use out of the labels & stickers.

gratitude campaign {thanksgiving edition}

November 24, 2010  /  giveaway, gratitude campaign, thanksgiving




I’ll just come out and say it, I’ve really fallen behind on my monthly ‘Gratitude Campaign’ posts. I’ve been feeling guilty and decided that the impending Thanksgiving in the US would be the perfect opportunity to make up for my negligence.

My first offering is a simple thanks for reading this little blog. Being self-employed and often working from home, I really take comfort and delight in the connections I make via blogging and tweeting. I have a healthy group of people that I count as friends made through these avenues. So… thank you for taking the time to read and connect with me on some level, it really means more than I can express.

Now, getting to the goody giveaway part of the post!

The mister and I have a tradition of writing down what we’re thankful for each and every Thanksgiving, it’s something that I really enjoy reflecting on and thought it would be the perfect question to pose for entry.

To enter to win:

|| Please leave a comment answering the following:
What are you currently thankful for in your life?

|| Anonymous comments will be disqualified.

|| Giveaway is open through Friday, December 3, 2010 at 11:59 PST.
Winner will be chosen by random.org and announced Monday, December 6th.

|| One comment per person, unless… Hey, want an extra chance to win?
Blog, tweet and/or facebook about our giveaway and post an additional comment(s) with the link.

One lucky winner will receive the thank you card set from Hammerpress, one winner will receive the set from Snow & Graham, one winner will receive the set from Ghost Academy and one winner will receive the assorted ‘grab bag’ from our archives. Best of luck!

creative crush: daily calligrapher

April 29, 2010  /  creative crush, etsy, giveaway




There’s something about the art of calligraphy that’s captured my attention from a young age. My grandmother dabbled in it and I remember the joy of watching her address envelopes followed with her signature Fleurde-Lis wax seal. Currently, I’ve begun a pen pal correspondence with the lovely and talented Grace Edmands. Her work is exquisite and every time I see her handwriting in my mailbox, I can’t help but grin.

The magic of Twitter recently lead me to Daily Calligraphy. Lila shares a range of quotes that she’s written in different styles. The quotes are a great mix of hilarious, inspiring, plain silly and of course a few classics thrown in for good measure. She’s recently started selling her work in the Daily Calligraphy Etsy shop at very reasonable prices. I had to order two myself, including one of my favorite Martin Luther King quotes above.
_______________________________________________

In giveaway news, I’ve been a rather bad blogger and am announcing the Paper Bullet winner a bit later than anticipated.

Congratulations to Piddix, who quite favored the “Kiss Me Over and Over” watercolor. Many thanks to Lisa for sponsoring the giveaway.
