Art Journaling Kit Giveaway

Happy Friday after Christmas, everyone!

I hope this finds you all doing fabulous and that your holidays have been 01559d81fe6ad666f6ee9433a85e942a0666d640aawonderful. Christmas was good in our house, Noah would tell you it’s been great!, since he got, in his words, “the most awesome bike EVER!”

The only way our Christmas could have been any better would have been if the flu hadn’t blasted me, Noah, and Richie off our feet. Poor kid has barely gotten to ride his bike and you know how tough that is for a kid.

Yeah, being sick doesn’t make for a fun time but it was still a good holiday.

We won’t actually be done with our Christmas until Sunday when we’re celebrating with my youngest daughter and her husband. They spent the actual holiday in Alabama with his family. His father is dying of cancer (Mesothelioma) so being there with him for this holiday, which will obviously his last, was super important. My heart has just ached for them as he has gone downhill at breakneck speed this past week.

Yeah, my flu doesn’t seem so important when judged against that, does it?

Yep, life is all about perspective. So often we are far more blessed than we realize...until we are reminded by the misfortune of others. Sadly.


I have a couple of things for y’all today.

During the holidays there is never enough time for everything I want to do but there is always time for a GIVEAWAY! YAY!!!

Always want to be 100% honest, this is a “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” kind of giveaway.

First, the prizes! Yes, more than one prize! Woot!~

First prize is an art journaling kit (I will take a pic of the kit in a couple of days) put together by me including some of my most favorite things! It includes:

  • A handmade 5”x8” copic bound journal filled with 140# watercolor paper;
  • a small selection of my favorite pens (including a wonderful Pilot Perma Ball pen);
  • a packet of papers, pictures, clippings, and other ephemera;
  • one of my favorite glue sticks;
  • a few Sharpie Paint Pens;
  • a few small rolls of washi tape;
  • a set of 4 6” stencils of my design;
  • and who knows what else I might decide to throw in this little journaling kit!

Second prize is:

A set of four brand new Dylusions spray inks in Postal Red, Vibrant Turquoise, White linen, and Fresh Lime. (Note: pictured below are different colors than those I am giving will receive the actual colors stated.)
