Leather Journal Giveaway


I know Valentine's Day is over, but in the spirit of universal love and sharing :) I'm doing my first blog giveaway. I'm giving away one of my moon journals (pictured above and below). This one has a medieval replica binding (see this post for more information about the binding), and a quote from Walt Whitman about the everyday miracles all around us.
The quote is on the first page. The rest of the pages are blank, ready for you to fill them.








All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment with this post before the end of the day on Tuesday, Feb. 24th. I'll put all the names in a hat (or hat-like object), and one person's name will be picked. Then I'll announce the winner on my blog. Good luck!
UPDATE: I put all the names from the comments into a hat-like-object, and had my husband draw one out. And the winner is: Kitty!
Congratulations, Kitty!! And thanks to all of you who entered!

I've been lurking your blog for a while, following the RSS feed, and your work is just great.

Sure, it did take an appeal to my greed to get me to comment, but hey, I'm only human. :)

I've been following your blog for a while now, and especially liked your medieval series. What a nice surprise to see you giving one away!

I'd love to see one of your bindings in flesh and hold it in my hands. - It would find a nice place in my collection of handbound books.

I hope I'll be lucky in the hat!
