DIY journaling gift card giveaway!!

This giveaway is now closed.  Check back soon for another!!

Hello, readers!
I'm so excited today to offer this great giveaway to Gadanke, a totally one-of-a-kind shop that features personalizable journals to keep your stories and memories in, in a beautiful and artful way.

 Even baby books!
The shop owner, Katie, is a reader and is generously offering a $25 gift certificate to Gadanke to one lucky reader.  Here's a little more about her shop...


about Gadanke
Document who you are and what you crave and believe.  Handmade journaling products at Gadanke are filled with creative writing prompts and tidbits to make you think (and laugh!).  These baby books, prayer journals, travel books, and diaries make your writing process more meaningful and fun!  Plus they're totally eco-savvy with 100% recycled papers.

motto:  celebrate your story!

background:  
A couple of years ago, NPR's StoryCorp was in town.  It was also my grandma's 90th birthday.  The two of us decided to hop into the recording studio to capture some pieces of her story.  I had all sorts of prompts to help her with her story telling.  (I was always the listener, the one who asked question after question.)  The only problem?  My grandma couldn't remember.  Too much time had passed.  Later, my dad turned to me and said, "Katie, I need you to write down your story."  I knew he wished he had his mom's stories.  So I started writing.  I started wondering about all of the other women who have stories deep inside of them, and I started thinking about how my tendency to just listen and ask could help put those stories onto paper.  Gadanke was born with fabulous writing prompts and recycled papers.  I feel so lucky to be living my dream.



You can look inside some of Katie's journals here.  So many cool things do do with them!  You can also see what other customers have done with their Gadanke diaries on the website.  They can be soooo cute!!

To enter this $25 gift card giveaway, visit Gadanke and tell me which journal you'd love to have for celebrating your stories (You must be a follower of this blog in some form to enter).  Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.  For extra entries:

For each thing you do, be sure to leave a comment telling me about it!  Giveaway ends Sunday, April 10th at midnight and I will announce the winner Monday.

(Thanks so much, Katie!  Your wonderful journals look like so much fun and so great for passing along the stories of our unique and creative lives).

  17. I would have a hard time picking between one of the "she" journals, and the "love where we live" ones. I'm about to get my first real place without roommates, the first place that's really my own, and I'd love some help with inspiration.

  18. Wow, so hard to choose! They are all great. I'd probably choose the Travel one for my upcoming trip to Mexico, or Love where you Live... I'm moving away from Portland in 7 months, so it'd be nice to document my time here.
