What a rough weekend.
Like rougher than making out with a 20 grit sandpaper block. Let me tell ya…that ain’t fun.
First – moving is stressful. Second – no running water and a very dirty house is a bad combo. Third – a 10 month old with 103.5 degree temperature will land you in the ER at 2 in the morning to discover that bronchitis and double ear infections are no fun. We were just glad to not hear that P word. or the N word depending on how you look at it. That is pnemonia for the folks out there that have no idea what I am talking about.
Let’s just say that we have officially crossed the line into those crazy worried parents that literally would peel off their own skin if it would help their little ones feel better. It was a first for us…but one that we are glad is over and done with.
Speaking of firsts – today’s giveaway item is a great way to document the firsts in your life….and the lives of the little ones or loved ones around you. That’s right….Gadanke is a handcrafted journal shop created by a sweet girl named Katie.
Katie takes the journaling concept one step farther by creating prompts in some of her creations. They can help you in spurring along your creative process – perfect for those afflicted by writers block! Just check out the items that comes with the “SHE” personal journal (it’s a shmorgasboard of items perfect for those people that love scrapbooking and writing!):
Oh and those first ones – the vintage fabric covered ones? Those are my favorites….so beautiful!
They would be the best thing to add to a gift stash…for those just-in-case moments where you have a birthday but no gift…yeah…I have lots of those. And these would be just darling stuffers for easter baskets for those grown-up girls in your life.
Okay – so here is how you can win:
PRIZE : Gadanke Journal of your choice
NUMBER OF WINNERS : One (1)
TO ENTER : Leave a comment with the phrase “WRITE THAT DOWN” (name that movie!) and just for licorice sticks, tell me which one you would choose from the Gadanke site or your favorite journaling memory. I have one that I just vented about my mother for close to fifteen pages. I believe several of those pages were just me repeating “I WILL NEVER YELL AT MY KIDS” over and over again. Obviously I didn’t know what parenting was all about 🙂
PRIZE SHIPS : Anywhere to ANYONE! Wahoo!
NITTY GRITTY : This giveaway ends on Friday, February 25th at 8am EDT. Only one contest entry per email address. The winners will be chosen using Random.org and announced on Monday, February 28th.
Good luck and happy writing down those ‘firsts’ ya’ll! (check out the winner of last week’s giveaway at the bottom of this post!)
