thank you to all who entered! your comments were all so sweet and encouraging. it was so much fun to "meet" all of you and to visit your blogs and get to know a little more about each of you. i loved reading each and every comment.
to recap, everyone got an entry just for commenting and additional entries for blogging about the giveaway, following and/or voting for trace merritt elementary in the kohl's cares contest (4 entries maximum). i gave each entry a number. then i went to random.org and entered the numbers 1-68 into the number generator thingie and pressed enter three different times to get three winners. (the total number of entries is more than the total number of comments because some comments had more than one entry, i.e. "i'm following" and "i'm voting" in one comment, etc.) i decided to add an extra winner as a "thank you" for so many comments! ;)
so, without further ado, i present to you the winners of my 100th post giveaway! (drumroll...)
first place goes to Sal-Gal! she is the winner of the custom made journal!! yay! (you get to decide on the color scheme for the cover and the inside pages!)
Sal-Gal said...Hi, I saw a link on Bonnie's blog - so here I am! I am very impressed with your lovely journals, and would love to own one! I've never done anything like that myself as I'm quite new to making cards.I will make mention in my blog about you and of course I'd love to become a follower - what a lovely idea to get more followers too! lol my blog is: http://wwwsalgal53.blogspot.com/I will also vote for your school - so that's all three sorted!!

and as a thank you to everyone, i'd like to offer a special 20% discount to my blog readers for my etsy shop--good anytime! just mention the promo code in the comment section during checkout: BLOG20
i've added some mini stitched journals to the shop. the covers are made with enclosure cards from paper source. they have little pockets in the back cover that are perfect for stashing goodies for journaling (paper scraps, stickers, photos!) in fact, all my journals come with little goodies hidden in the pockets and flaps!
the insides are a mix of lovely vintage paper from my favorite sources (old atlases, yearbooks, ledgers, music sheets, children's books) and new paper (recycled cavalini & co calendars, scrapbook paper, catalog pages... YUM!
and happy labor day! i hope you are all enjoying a day off today. one last "vacation" before summer officially ends. sigh. but that just means that autumn is on it's way. i always forget how much i love the changing seasons. i'm always so stubborn when it comes to saying goodbye to summer. but i do love fall and halloween! i'll have another giveaway in october to celebrate my 3rd anniversary of blogging (or, blogiversary, as some say!) i'd also like to start organizing swaps and doing tutorials, etc. i'd love to know what else you'd like to see on the blog in the future? just leave your ideas in the comments! :) i'm always happy to hear your thoughts.
