What I Won

A little while ago I won a blog giveaway that Manuela at A Cultivated Nest had.  I won a hand made journal from Gadanke.  The journals that Gadanke carries are unique and explorative.  My journal came wrapped in tissue paper tied with artsy bakery twine and was a pleasure to unwrap.  I'm not really a journal-ly kind of person, but I'm looking forward to exploring my thoughts and feelings with this one.

hmm.  too bad there isn't an edit feature to focus out of focus photos.  I think it was windy.  Plus I can't really see the picture clearly in the view thingy so I can't tell what I'm doing anyways.  Especially outside.  That page says "then she created 3 bigger goals for the month" with 1, 2, 3 down below to list the goals.
You can see that the prompts are actually in the third person ("she" and "her" -- do men journal?), which kind of puts a different spin on the whole process.  There are also little envelopes, tags, and decorative papers inserted, and the whole thing is held by rings so you can add to it, insert other papers  and things, and further customize it.  A thoroughly charming little journal.  Thank you Manuela, and Katie at Gadanka!

It looks wonderful! I'm not a journal kind of person either but I thought the prompts made it interesting!

Diana, thank you for stopping by my place. Your bottle tree sounds very unique and you can never go wrong throwing in a little Elvis to the mix! Thank you very much (imagine Elvis' voice saying that).

I think that would be "Thank ya, thank ya very much".
