Fabulous Journal Giveaway

I'm excited to announce my first ever giveaway. I'm celebrating my first 100 followers. Woo-hoo! You guys are the greatest. You have given me so much encouragement, made me laugh when I was having a bad day, and inspired me with your stories. This giveaway is my way of saying thank you.

Every writer needs a journal. Sure, a blog is a swell thing, but there's nothing like taking pen to paper and scribbling down your ideas. You can take it with you wherever you go and write when the inspiration hits you. The Great Muse knows that inspiration comes to us at the strangest of times and you've got to be prepared. Even if you can't read all of your handwriting later!

I'm going to give away three journals. The three lucky winners will be chosen by All you have to do is leave a comment below. This giveaway is open to all of my followers no matter where you live.

The first winner chosen will get to pick which journal they want first. Then the second will choose between the remaining two journals. The third winner will receive the remaining one. Have no fear! All three journal are gorgeous. I have them sitting right here in front of me. I would take a picture of them, but my son sat on my camera and broke it the other day.

Journal #1 - This hardcover journal is from designwallas. They have an awesome selection. The one I'm giving away is from the Suede Damask collection. It's the black and white one with 224 cream colored pages.

Journal #2 - This journal has a brass spiral spine and hardcover. It's from the Pine Ridge Art Inc., but I can't find the artist on their site. The artist, Charles H. White is wonderfully talented. The painting featured on the cover is called Cobblestone Courtyard. Beautiful and inspiring.

Journal #3 - This is a hardcover journal and writing pad on a small clipboard set. I can't find it anywhere online to show you a picture. The pattern is a lovely soft blue, gray and white. On the back cover, there's some floral artwork and the quote: "The journey begins with one step."

It would be a good idea to include in your comment your first and second choices in case you're a winner. Oh! Also your email address. I'll need to contact you if you win. Yes, you can tell this is my first giveaway.

The giveaway will go through today through the 13th. I will announce the winners on October 14th.

100 followers. Wow. Thank you. Thank you all so very much.

  5. Congrats! And I love your website too! If I win, I'll let you choose. =)

  6. I happen to be the 100th follower so I deserve a special prize. ;) Jokes apart, I stay in India and don't want you to have to ship it in case my name comes up. So I pass on the offer rather unwillingly, given the descriptions..."Sigh". Always nice to meet a fellow writer, I may not turn up always but will surely drop in often. ;)

  7. Congratulations!
    And I am not entering to win as I have a stack of journals - you pick me, pass it on to someone who could really use one.

  8. Congrats, Christine! Woo hoo! Party! I've really enjoyed getting to know you and am glad we bumped into each other. I love journals. Any of the three is very appealing.

    Okay, my choices, if I win are journal 1 and then 2.

  12. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers! Woot! One can never have enough journals- never. If I win- ummm journal one then journal three I think.

  13. That's too bad about your camera! We broke our camera at the beach. Very sad.

    I'd like any of the journals!
