Giveaway

Today is the day!

I talked on Monday about the fact that I am joining the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway link party.
And here we are.

I have never done a giveaway before. :}
I’m a little nervous and excited about this,
so I’m just going to jump right in.


This up-cycled journal has a 30 blank pages, interspersed
with the original book pages.
It's value is US$25.

I am giving away one of my homemade up-cycled Little Golden Book® Journals.
I love these! I love giving something a little worn loved and give it a new life.

I’m a little of a modern-vintage kind of girl so these are right up my ally.

I sell them in my easy shop, I give them as present…I use them as my personal art journals.

If you are interested in making one yourself—I’ve done a tutorial.
