MORE Giveaway Madness!

     I have a new friend. His name is Jacob. I stumbled across his website when I Googled "cool journals" or "vintage journals," or something along those lines. And what I found were some very cool and very vintage journals. Jacob takes old books and makes them in to journals/blank books and the results are epic. Each one is hand made and has approx. 75 blank pages with pages from the original book interspersed throughout. This only ups the coolness factor.






    
     I searched the entire catalog at www.bookjournals.com because I didn't want to settle on one I liked, but  wanted to find the perfect journal. I found one he converted from a retro Sunday School book that had the year "1968" in pretty big numbers on the cover (the year I was born). The PERFECT journal!
     I emailed Jacob about how pleased I was with my purchase and he was kind enough to send me more to give away to my faithful readers and followers. Love to journal or wanting to start? What  better book to use? Need a gift? These would make great and unique presents for someone (a teacher would love the Arts and Skills of English title). Got an artistic kid? Perfect for the young artist to draw and create and design in.

  
     So I'm sharing the love. To get one of these little treasures, just comment on this post by saying which is your favorite from first to last. For example...
1. Dictionary (first favorite)
2. English
3. A Fly Went By
     Winners will be selected randomly and the first place commenter will get the journal of their choosing. Leave your comments by this Friday at noon and you will be entered for a chance to be one of three winners! And if you can't wait, hop on over to www.bookjournals.com and shop for the one that fits your personality perfectly. So many cool covers to look at. Hard to choose just one (so I bought two!).

I think my favorite would be a Nancy Drew mysteries because I read those as a kid. But, I also like the Dr. Seuss, "Are you my Mother?" Who can resist Dr. Seuss??? And I can see myself writing little quotes from my daughter in that journal. On the other hand, I have learned to live practically as a missionary and know that it is better to give than to receive so I would choose the "Spain" one to give away to friends.
