Spring Giveaway #2: The Wood Grain Giveaway



For my 2nd Spring Giveaway, we have a theme: wood grain. The winner of the drawing will receive an A.G. Spalding & Bros. fountain pen with a stainless steel medium nib as well as the Daycraft Slab notebook (wood finish) that I won last year from Julie B (O-kami) @ Whatever.


The A.G. Spalding & Bros. fountain pen was sent to me by JetPens last summer, which I reviewed here. The pen is great, and I think the lucky winner will enjoy it quite a bit. 


Not included in the giveaway is my Ikea coffee table. I like this table, and you cannot have it. 


Shown above is Julie's writing sample. She did note that feathering and bleed-through were concerns, so I'd recommend not using the fountain pen in this notebook, unless you have a really well behaved ink or you don't simply don't mind a bit of feathering. I had fully intended to keep the notebook, but it's just too difficult to resist pairing these items together. So, on to the details:


As for the rules, this will be for U.S. visitors only (shipping costs and issues with Customs being the limitation). 

You only need to leave a comment (one per person) on this page. If you'd be willing to share this opportunity on whatever social media you use, that would be much appreciated!

The giveaway will be closed Friday, April 5th, at 11:59pm, CST. Good luck!

Spring Giveaway #1

You'll have to forgive the lack of posts over the last month; my father passed away quite unexpectedly, so it's been difficult to balance everything since late February. On a lighter note, I'd like to keep the blog alive with a few giveaways, so this is going to be the first of several, and I hope we get a nice turnout for entries.



What's in the first giveaway? Everything in the picture! We have offerings from Pilot, Uniball, Bic, Schneider, Zebra, Deleter, InkJournal, Daycraft, Dong-A, Sharpie, Field Notes, and Alvin. 21 pens, 1 notebook, 1 InkJournal, 1 adhesive pen/pencil holder, and 1 correction tape. 

As for the rules, this will be for U.S. visitors only (shipping and issues with Customs being the limitation). 

You only need to leave a comment (one per person) on this page. If you'd be willing to share this opportunity on whatever social media you use, that would be much appreciated!

The giveaway will be closed Friday, March 29th, at 11:59pm, CST.

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for participating. :)
