birthday giveaway featuring this is me journal.

by @according2kelly on June 19, 2008

i’m sure it’s old news by now, but just in case your a newbie, here’s the situation… it’s almost my birthday & you’re invited to the party. my mom & dad have always taught me that it is better to give than to receive, so with that in mind, i’m throwing a month-long celebration, here on the blog. each week i will be hosting a giveaway featuring some of my favorite things. over the last two weeks, we’ve had some incredible giveaways, & i can guarantee this one will be just as fabulous.
if you’ve read my blog for any time at all, you’ll already know how much i love, no adore, this week’s giveaway. i’ve already raved & raved about the this is me journal – a kid’s first keepsake journal. but, i’ll gladly tell you all about it again! carrie (the visionary, creator, & entrepreneur extraordinaire of the this is me journal) spent forever searching high & low for the perfect “first journal.” she really wanted something similar to what she had as a kid… something for her “little ones” to record their thoughts & drawings. having no success in locating said journal, she created one & then decided to self-publish (wow!). resulting in the this is me journal… the perfect combination of “drawing, writing, creativity & simple scrap booking to capture the years memories through your child’s eyes”. check out her shop HERE, be sure to check out all the wonderful details & features of the journal, read up on carrie’s journaling tips & hints, & be sure to check out my favorite… the kids’ self-portrait gallery.

so have i piqued your interest? have you realized that you want, no NEED your own copy (either for your own little ones, or for that perfect “where did you get this?” present)? well, this might just be your lucky week. why you ask? because this week, THREE lucky winners will receive their very own copy of the this is me journal & a set of acid-free colored pencils. yep! you read that right… this week you have THREE opportunities to win. good luck!

so here are the rules of the game:
* you have until midnight PST on monday, june 23rd to enter.
* simply make a comment on this post to enter.
* anyone can enter (so tell your friends), although anonymous comments will be ignored unless accompanied by an email address.
* please, just one entry per person.
* the winners will be randomly picked & announced tuesday.
