UDPATE:  contest has ended — winner(s) announced on 1-13-09 post

Yay! I made it through a whole year of posting on this here blog! Have some cake. (Or some icing with sprinkles at least.)  Looking back at my first post I see that last year’s resolutions totally did not happen, but I think the outline of topics I figured I would write about is still pretty accurate.

So, in celebration of one year and counting, I want to pretend that my comments are always overflowing and give a little something away through the standard comment giveaway contest. *doo-do-da-doo trumpet noises*

A mini-package of the following will be sent to whoever wins:


  • A 5×7 print of your choice of any one of my photographs that has been posted on this blog or in my Flickr. If you don’t have a preference I will choose the “stomp” photo above because I love it. (Into cute? Try aminals. Like traveling? Try ooooohhhh. Are birds your thing? Try flighty. And yes, I am the kind of annoying person who goes linking to my own past posts because I get excited about my own photos. Sometimes I annoy myself.) …AND…


  • A handmade small jotbook full of recycled graph, magazine, and book paper… OR…


  • A handmade little tie for your key chain. (The tie pattern will be different than the one used above, but it will be 70s cheesy and I will send you some pics to choose from.)

So, if you want a print and either a jotbook or a tie for your keys (and honestly, if anyone does I am honored) then leave a comment on this post. Simple. But if you REALLY want to win, then go through my archives and find interesting (or at least not overly boring) posts and come back and leave more comment(s) telling me which ones you liked. And if you REALLY REALLY want to win, then mention my blog on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and leave more comments letting me know about your post(s). [Or any combination of the above. One comment for each item gives you more chances!]

Keep leaving comments until 6pm Pacific next Tuesday (1/13) when I’ll come back and announce the randomly chosen winner from all three comments left.

The contest is open to everyone I know in real life too, except Mr. Man because I would just make him these things anyway. (Unless he had just eaten the last pickle or “accidentally” deleted an episode of So You Think You Can Dance–then he could make his own dang book.)


Entry filed under: art, craft, goals, photos, sewing.

book nerd score!

    Hey there!
    Thanks for letting me know that you were using my picture. I know I have a CC license on it and you were free to use it anyway, but the asking/telling is something I really appreciate as a budding photographer/human being with feelings.
    I like your blog. Congratulations on the first birthday!

    That book is too cute! If I had the patience I would totally make my own notebook. 🙂

    oohhh a competition. I just stumbled upon your blog from another and would love to enter. I need to take my kids to swimming right now but I will come back and look through your archives and leaves more comments. If I am the luckiest person to win I think I would like the notebook. I have always wanted to make one but never quite find the time. Cheers
