giveaway on inspiration monday!


i'm celebrating! 305 bloggy posts, 102 bloggy follower friends, 42 "inspiration monday" entries, 372 etsy hearts, and 55 etsy sales! woo hoo!! that's a lot to kick up my heels about, so i made this little butterfly book as a special "door prize" for this bloggy party!

it's filled with creamy mohawk superfine writing paper, some distressed decorative papers, and for inspiration, a little rub-on message here and there.


i bound it using a 4-needle coptic method, making the covers completely independent of the pages, and held together by a flexible "chain" stitch going down the spine enabling the book to lie completely flat.
and.....i'd love to send it to you! just leave a comment, i'll let the computerized random generator choose the recipient, and i'll announce this little book's new owner on thursday!

thanks so much for your visits to my blog....i appreciate you more than you'll ever know!!

This is such a lovely book but you in fact have (at least) 102 bloggy friends - I count myself as one even if I'm not a follower because I don't use google reader. It would be a honour winning a book made by you!
Love, Kitty

tami said...

Lori, - what a beautiful book!
I'm a follower also but don't use the google thingy!!

I mentioned you on my blog today.
Your warmth and encouragement just made my week last week : )
Thank you.

This is so lovely. You always show such attention to detail. The message on one of the first pages - trust yourself - is my motto at the moment. I figure if I keep repeating it, I eventually will. :)

I love your work. And thanks for the tips on shopping for supplies in Jax. I was able to find some thread at JoAnn and a bookbinders kit at HobbyLobby. (It was pink, I couldn't resist.)

Lori: Thanks so much for your wonderful comments about my work featured on Kate's blog: shiborigirl.blogspot.com. I am having way too good a time and do wish that you could come to Philly to see what I've been up to. I love reading your ideas about bookmaking and am tempted to jump in after seeing your blog. I, a fellow messy, have to keep these hands dirty. Have a great day!
