It seems that the organization bug has hit Prudent Baby, so it’s time to give away these rad notebook/stetchbook/journals, perfect for list-making/dreaming/scheming. Back in Dec, I asked Jacob from Ex Libris Anonymous to donate a journal for a giveaway and instead he sent me 10, plus he called me a “gem encrusted diamond lobster rainbow” which, if you know how much I love lobster (and rainbows), you would know that it was the best compliment ever. So let’s all go buy a new journal because Jacob knows how to talk to ladies! AND because the journals are very awesome.
But back to the GIVEAWAY. Here are the journals we have:
A here is how cool they look inside (a combination of white sketch paper and pages from the book):
Get the details on how to win one of these great journals after the jump.
Leave a comment here telling us the best compliment someone could give you by combining your three favorite things. such as “you are a steaming-hot-latte watercolor cashmere-sock” or “you are a bubble-bath France daisy” And don’t say your husband or kids, that’s a given, shmoopy.
You can come back and enter every day but you must make up a new “compliment.” We will pick a winner at random for each day the giveaway is running. They will receive the journal for the day in the order shown above. US entries only (although please join in and share your “compliment” no matter where you are.)
You are ice cream, spaghetti, chocolate cake. (Man, I love food way to much.)
