100 follower giveaway! Wahoo! Well a little while ago, before 100 followers point, I mentioned I wanted to do a giveaway with a handbound creative writing prompt journal and hinted at a reason. Well first I thought I'd tie up that loose end and say what the reason was (well actually still is) - I have signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and AEDM (Art Every Day Month) in November.
My theory for taking on both of these daily challenges in one month is that after I've pulled my hair out trying to make my daily word count on the novel I can turn to art to soothe me (that's what I'm telling myself anyhow, don't ruin my disillusion lol). On top of this I want to blog everyday, which will be more posts in one month than I have done in the whole of my life lol but I want to keep a personal 'achievement diary' so it'll just be a picture of my creation and a daily word count. Still I'll probably stumble at some point so if anyone else is doing either of these challenges please shout out so I can follow you/buddy-up.
However, with everything going on in my life at the moment (thanks to everyone who gave kind words re: my grandma in the last post) I simply don't have the time I need to make up, organise & print out all the pages to make the writing journal - let alone create the video on the creative writing exercise I said would go with it - so that'll have to wait till sometime after November. So what is in this giveaway instead is my new zine, Creative Juice:
Also included in the giveaway is some vintage ephemera. Regular readers will know I am addicted to ephemera, and one of my favourite treasures to find is collectable card books (originally given away with cigarettes or tea):
I find the books and if incomplete I find and fill with the remaining cards and recently I had enough to fill a duplicate book, so I thought I'd offer it in the giveaway, here are a few shots:
It is on Adventurers and Explores and is fully complete. I don't know how much it is worth - could be 10p, could be £100. I don't do this for profit, I do it because I believe ANYTHING historical has the importance to be valued or saved (and obviously also because I'm a HUGE geek - and bloody proud of it too!)
Finally I'm also including the loose collectable cards above - there's some tropical birds, lots of royality ones and even the Beatles! These are fantastic to use in your crafts, especially collage - check out my flickr or the last section of my found projects video if you want some ideas on how you can use them.
So to enter the giveaway you must first be a follower and then just leave me a comment letting me know you wish to be entered. I'll draw the winner on the first day of my challenges, November 1st. Many thanks and lots of love, Jennibellie xx
