bonjour! giveaway!

My first giveaway!

monthly

weekly

bon voyage print

Hello everyone!

Thank you for all your kind comments on our ballooning adventure! I was so flattered with the response! I hope you all get to try it some day, and I advise you to dress very warmly if you go on an autumn morning. My feet were frozen when we were up in the sky!

I have something I want to tell you, and I hope you will like it!

Remember my
schedule book? Well, the 2010 books came out, and I have an extra one this year. I want to give it away to one of you, my dear friends.

I love these schedule books by Shinzi Katoh, they are filled with his playful illustrations on every page. I love the practical layout they created, perfect for someone like me, who needs a lot of space to write out really messy, ever changing lists. This year, they made the book smaller than the previous years, so it is the perfect size to fit in your bag.

I also wanted to give you something by me in my very first giveaway! On the theme of planning, I remember when I took this photo, I was anticipating how much fun we were going to have on our upcoming trip to PEI. I hope 2010 has a lot of exciting things in store for you!

Do say hello, and leave a comment here by Monday, October 26th, 12:00 am EDT. I will draw a name and announce the winner next week! The lucky winner will get a Shinzi Katoh schedule book, and a 10cm x 10cm "bon voyage" print, printed on archival paper with archival ink.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

  65. Hey Celine! I just found your blog via a comment you left with Karyn. I love it! Your pictures are amazing.....I was at quilt Sunday today and was talking with Roslyn (I hope I spelled that right). She was saying you weren't in the Japanese Dress class, I was hoping you'd both be in it after we talked about it at the workroom party.... Anyways I got inspired today to make a quilt but don't know where to start!!!

    Love the Shinzi Katoh planner, you'll have to tell me where I can get one (if I don't win the draw, haha)
