CONGRATULATIONS!!!


Thank you all for entering my first giveaway! Your comments made this experience so nice that I want to repeat it again in February! So check back soon for more giveaways!

 
Total number of comments 181 
(2 comments from 183 were eliminated because they didn't qualify)
__________________

My first giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much to all of the participants, your kind comments and positive feedback about my work were greatly appreciated! I will return later today to announce the winning number! 

____________________
 

I’ve always liked the idea of giving away something made by me. Before starting on Etsy I used to offer my books to my family and friends. Now I’m thinking it’s time to offer one of my miniature vintage journals to someone out there who enjoys my work. 

Period: Starting Thursday, January 21 – Ending Wednesday, January 27
Prize: Miniature Journal made of brown vintage leather (value: $45). It
measures 5.5 x 7 cm (2.2 x 2.8 inches).
How to enter: 
- Leave a comment to this post telling me which is your favorite book from my Etsy shop.
- Leave another comment if you are a follower of my blog (and double your winning chances!)


The winner will be chosen on January 28 by the Random Number Generator.
If you don’t have a public contact address please send me your email or write it with your comment, or check back on 28th to see if you won.


Good luck!!

Your little vintage journals are wonderful! I love the ones with the anitique key. I've only just discovered your blog (thanks to Paula) and I live so far away so feel its an awful cheek that I'm wanting to take part in the giveaway.

Joanie Hoffman said...

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=38802631
That's the one I love! I love squares so this has an instant appeal to me. Your journals have so much going for them: the miniature size, the old leather, and your talent and time. Thanks for a chance to own one of your journals!

Teo, picking a favorite is sooo impossable. I must confess am drawn more to the miniture/palm sized journals. The one I bought is to die for wonderful, and the one you have listed now with the leather lace with black accent piece is a for sure pick. Each Journal is so artistic and everyone i've showed your journals to agrees, they are true works of art.

I really like your
"Stained Glass - Large Black Leather Journal with Belt". It's way cute and I love things that are stained glass! All your books are nice!
