yummy - the imperfect is perfect in my eyes - please toss an eb in your hat...

You are so amazing and creative! I don't know why you were ever concerned about displaying your art? You should know that you are an inspiration to others, and know you are such a talented person.

By the way, I love your new blue walls and the new corner.

Mrs B.

Just found your blog through DeeDee's blog! It's so wonderful!

I just posted my very first foray into art journaling on my blog. How great would it be to win such a beautiful journal?

Barb (aka Craft Junkie)

OMG, how beautiful! These will sell like hotcakes when you list them on your Etsy...they are fabulous. I would soooo love to have one of your "less than perfects"...that would be awesome.

Oh, and to give credit, Zom sent me cause she thought your journals are great, too. *smile*

Peace & Love,


I'll de-lurk for that. I am a bibliophile in the most literal sense of the word, loving not only books of fiction or history or science, but blank books. I've bound a few in my time but never regularly; maybe I'll start that again some time.

Yay for inspiration.


oh, I love-love-love this :)


Please add my name to the list for this beauticious journal!!! So sweet to offer it for a give-away. I put a link on my blog to spread the word. Thanks!



Hi, I just learned about your wonderful journal giveaway from a blog I visit regularly so I thought I should enter and give it a try. I also posted about your contest. I just love the journal. I left my page url so apparently you click on my name(I tried it already) and you are sent to my page. Lol I'm on blogger so I don't know how typepad works.


Oh, just lovely...:) Please enter me in the drawing. Thanks kindly...xx


I would be honored to make your fabulous journal mine! Yippee!


I have written in a journal for 45 of my 49 years. It's the single thing that I have done consistantly throughout my life. I have every one of them (but two that I lost along the way). It used to be the thing I said I'd take in a fire, as I could lose all else if I had to, but now they stack into about 14 uniform boxes, and that would be impossible.

Oddly, I never read back in them, but I assume there will be time for that when I'm in a rocking chair.... or not.

I collect journals, am always looking for just the right one for the place I am in. I take great care in the choice of the next one as I finish the last. I would love to be entered in your drawing. Thanks for doing it. It's a beautiful journal!


PS: I will add this to my blog as you suggest. I have three actually, all connected to my profile. I think it would be fitting on the one called Looky Here, ( http://lookyhereu.blogspot.com/)

But please do visit the other two.... Adventures in Nature and a New Yorker in Houston. They all can be accessed through this link:


Beautiful journal, Debra, as usual!! I am 1. entering and 2. letting you know I spread the word on my blog. :)

miz katie

Looks like I don't stand a chance, but I'm still gonna try. :) I'd love to win. Oh, and I twittered about it here:

Raven P.

Such gorgeous, multifaceted work you do. It is really unique and inspiring! I'm going to check out your Etsy store now. And I agree- you Could sell something with imperfections with the nature of your work being quirky, unique and handmade.


i am a huge journaler and would love a personal creation!!

Joanie Hoffman

thanks for the giveaway, i'm off to post it on my blog!
happy days,


what an incredible and unique journal! Who wouldn't LOVE to win that?!!! I will definitely put your link on my site as well, you do such wonderful art! Thanks for the great giveaway chance!


So pretty - a great way to make art out of daily recollections.

These are so attractive.... I want one anyway.. "No you dont" says journal, "you have me..."

I am so fickle

Oh, what a beautiful journal and gift you're bestowing on a lucky blogger:) I found you through the wonderful Studio Lolo.

Thank you for your generosity :)

Delurking to say: Wowza! What a prize! I woulda bought it from etsy, creased pages and all!

shannon almanzar

if you don't pick me......it's over!


Wow a last minute discovery and entry! The journals are just gorgeous. I have entered a triathlon training program beginning in the new year and this would be an extra special way to keep notes on my times and session details..... raise three small children, craft, blog, fall in love with my hubby all over again, read, draw, and run? Can I do it all? I'll give it a go.
Beautiful blog :)


Love the journals! and thanks for the chance to win one! Thanks, Wendy
