January Journal Giveaway!

Well the holidays are just a memory now but I hope you all had a wonderful New Years and enjoyed being with family and friends. 

As promised I'm starting off the New Year with my first giveaway!  I've chosen one of my journals which are very popular so i know who ever  wins will be very happy. :) 

Here are the pics of the actual giveaway journal.


                    It holds a 9"x6" coil notebook which are very easy to find and so the journal cover
                                                       can be refilled again and again.



The cover is made starting with a bottom layer of cotton batik fabric then a few silk flowers are scattered that have been pressed flat.  A layer of organza is fused over top and finally free motioned stitched with a variety of variegated threads. The interior is a very stiff stabiliser and then the edges are all zigzagged.


                                               This is a close up of the free motion quilting.

                             So how do I win this giveaway you ask?  Very easy!  Just post a comment to this post      or any other posts this month (one chance per comment) and after a random draw at the end of the month                                   I will mail out your prize, no matter where you live. :)

                                           I'm excited to share my work with someone new and I'm excited to have              some new followers to my blog. Feel free to share this post through facebook or twitter with your friends and good luck! :D

Well, then! I love your journals, so I will just comment every day to make sure I win this beauty!

I was at the Centre yesterday for How-2-Tuesday and saw the display of your work there. Beautiful!

I'm with Janet, in fact bought your journals in the past as gifts but never for myself. Love them. Can't wait to see your new work.

If I won a journal would I have to write in it? :)
It is beautiful! (No surprise there, I love your work!)

Happy New Year!

Pick me, pick me! Love the fresh daisy design on this journal. It could inspire all kinds of ideas to write down inside.
