Let The Game Begin!

In a few minutes here on the west coast in southern California it will be May 1st!

And that means THE CONTEST begins.

All you need to do is visit and leave me a comment during the month of May.

On the last day of the month all the names of those of you who comment will be put into a basket and ONE name will be drawn.

The winner receives a hand bound Coptic stitch journal made by me!

* one entry per person each month *

    I'm not eligible to enter the contest, huh? That whole "relative" thing.

    Does it matter how many times someone leaves a comment? Meaning, if they comment 15 times, it's only counted as one, right? They don't improve their chances by leaving multiple comments, thinking that's how many times their name will be tossed in the hat, box, blender...

    Uh, Jill, if you want a journal just tell me ;-)

    You are correct. Your name can only be entered ONE time per month, no matter how often you leave a comment. And, if you comment under "Anonymous" you must include your name at the end of your comment to be included.

    What is a coptic stitch journal?

    It almost sounds religious. Well, except for the stitch part. Because that part sounds painful unless you're talking about sewing stitches.

    I think I need some coffee. Or my meds are wearing off.

    Oh wait! Is that the thing with the bird?

    MY GAWD THAT IS BEAUTIFUL! I am so very envious of arty people.


  • At 11:13 PM , Blogger ~jolene said...


    LOL! The stitching part was painful when I was learning!

    Please come back again, your sense of humor is always welcome!

    Carolyn Evans...sometimes dreams come true...thank you & good luck.

    Tammy, I was wondering where you were :) Sometimes Blogger is a bum as we all know. You are now officially in the drawing! And thanks for ALWAYS being so supportive of my art (and Jill's)!

    The dr is in...heehee...I HAD to say that...thanks for visiting (this does not count as an office visit, right?!) ;-)

    Followed the link your daughter posted on Crazy Aunt Purl. Love the journals you create, very pretty. Please enter my name in the drawing.

  • At 10:46 AM , Blogger ~jolene said...

    psychomom...I can't even type that without smiling! LOL! Oh, don't you just LOVE Crazy Aunt Purl...her book will be a kick!

    Good luck in my drawing. And please, keep coming back for a visit!

    Oh, I probably should have mentioned that I came over here from CAP too.

    She just draws the crazies to her, bless her heart.

    And she doesn't care if we aren't knitters! But I do crochet and I'm certifiable because I mainly do doilies. Do you know how many people don't know what doilies are?

    Which leads me to my question [because I did have one!]

    Apparently "waxed linen thread imported from Belfast" is superior where your usage is concerned, but why? And should I be making my doilies out of it?

    And if you didn't have it, what would you use instead?

  • At 6:15 PM , Blogger ~jolene said...

    brat -
    Hmm, I don't think I would recommend using waxed linen thread for doilies :)

    People are very inventive with their binding materials for books -- too much to get into here - but I know people have used floss even!

    That's the great thing about can be resourceful :)

  • At 8:51 PM , Blogger Rebecca E. Parsons said...

    WHOOPPIE!!! Count me in. I love to read book. I love to make books. I love to buy books. I love to feel books in my hands. I love your books. I get the point!!


  • At 11:12 PM , Blogger ~jolene said...

    rebecca e. parsons..Cre8Tiva! I do indeed get your point! And I feel your energy :)
    Welcome to The Blue Cottage. You are IN!

  • At 1:59 PM , Blogger Wendy WaterBirde said...

    Oh these are precious! Count me in : )

    Paix, Wendy

    I am so happy you found your way here! A little birdie must have told you ;-)

    Welcome Wendy.
