It's finally here! The quarterly Bloggy Carnival. I am giving away a custom made journal similar to the one pictured above that I made recently. Whoever wins can customize their journal and keep it for themselves, or have it done for someone else. My giveaway begins today at 9am Eastern and ends Saturday August 2nd at 10pm Eastern. International entries are welcome.

So, here are the rules for entering the giveaway...you must leave a comment to this post, and tell me what your favorite item from my Etsy shop is. I am going to try and update it this week...and I want some feedback from all of you! If you don't like anything I have then tell me what you would be interested in seeing! Please be sure to leave your name and contact information. If you would like to receive 5 extra entries then do a post on your blog linking to my giveaway...be sure to let me know you have done this.
*For an additional entry head to my sister's Etsy and leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing she offers. She is also hosting 2 giveaways on her blog, so check those out as well! Good luck to all!

I will draw the winner on Sunday August 3rd at 4pm Eastern. Thanks so much for entering!

I would love a custom journal! I'm definitely a journaler. (sp?) I like your black and turquoise bracelet...the only problem is I can't keep a bracelet on (it bugs me and I play with it!). But it would be neat to have it in a necklace.
