It’s back to school time for pretty much everyone. Even if you aren’t in school at the moment, you know you get that feeling that you are supposed to get yourself organized along with the rest of the school going folks. You see the racks of notebooks and accessories in the stores. You feel the excitement of new things in the air. It reminds me of the movie You’ve Got Mail when Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) writes Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan).
Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you bouquets of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.
I thought I couldn’t be the only person with these thoughts. If you are anything like me, you look at the notebooks and pens and organization systems and get momentarily sad that you can’t find a decent reason to buy it. The pretty colors are almost irresistible. But sadly, you decide to walk past them.
Because I know how this feels, love our followers so much and love nothing more than a gift, I decided to fix this situation by putting together our version of a back-to-school giveaway. It is a few things that might be a little step up from the items you would find in normal back-to-school lists. Let’s say, it’s a bit more chic. First, we have a beautiful journal from Sugar Paper in kraft with gold foil polka dots. I love keeping a journal around for spur of the moment thoughts that escape my mind if I don’t write them down. Having a gorgeous one like this is just icing on the cake. Next, a set of gold foiled note cards with an apple motif (also from Sugar Paper). We feel that a handwritten note is the best ever. Also, all those brides out there know that writing notes comes with the planning process. Up next is a beautiful business card holder in gold and pink ombre. This comes from Etsy store Matine. Lastly, we have a set of 12 pink pencils from Iomoi to use with your fancy new journal.
So, here’s the game plan. To enter, you will need to do a few things. One, be a fan of our Facebook page if you aren’t already. Two, like the posted giveaway photo. Three, share the giveaway photo with your friends. Be sure to set your sharing settings to public. And finally, comment on the original photo and tell us what you like best about the giveaway. Entries for the giveaway will be counted one week from now, August 27, 2013. We will announce the winner on our Facebook page.
Good luck! My only regret is that I can’t enter myself!
Until next time… XOXO, Julie
