CONCERNING GIVEAWAY'S PRIZE!I was sent two beautiful journals to review, the Quilt Journal Crystal Steps sold for $16.95 (first pictured to the left) and the Sari Quilt Journal sold for $19.95 (second pictured to the left). Both measure 6" x 9" and have 160 pages in them total. 96 are blank, while the remaining 64 pages are graphs. The 96 pages of thick white paper works well for journaling, sketching, notetaking, painting, and documenting (among other things). The 64 pages of graph paper can be written on as a journal, used to draft quilt blocks, or further other design work. Each book also has a "secret compartment" slot located at the back of the book!
I love these books! They each have their own uniqueness to them. The quilted covers are handmade from recycled fabric... how cool is that?! There is stitching on each cover, separating the fabric pieces to make a collage. What's even more fascinating is your purchase of these items aides in fair trade and contributes to employment for the villagers in India who make these! They truly do inspire me to start writing! How does this concern your prize you say? Well read on! The winner of this giveaway will be sent the same journal I received, a random Sari Quilt Journal (as pictured above to the right)!
