A little while ago, I was lucky enough to be the winner of a giveaway on Find, Make, Do - a fun crafty blog by Betty Jo of Lino Forest. The prize was a fabo journal crafted from a Little Golden Book, made by Megan over at The Byron Life.
There are pages from the original book dotted throughout the blank pages - cute surprises!
I was really chuffed because I love journals and I love recycling and here you have both in the one package! Megan wondered what plans I had for my prize and I told her I planned to use it as an art journal for an up-coming exhibition - provided of course I got to the mailbox before my daughter because I knew if she spied it first it would never be mine ...On Friday, after a massively long day and a fairly tiring week, I came home to find a parcel waiting for me - that lifted my spirits in itself and when I opened it - well I am fairly certain I did in fact squeal! A pretty high-pitched porcine kinda noise to be more precise! For there inside, was not one but TWO Little Golden Book Journals - Megan had sent one for me and one for my daughter - just so there wouldn't be any arguments she said!
How generous is that? I am tickled pink with both the journal and the thoughtfulness - just gotta love Blogland - crafters are seriously cool people! So, a big thanks to Betty Jo for being the hostie and a massive thanks to Megan for her generous prize. Now that you have seen mine, you are no doubt dying to procure a journal for you very ownself - well, you can head over to Megans shop and do just that!
