I'm a bit late with this post, but I hope you'll all forgive me. My mum has had a bad tummy bug this week and I've spent a lot of time helping her. So consequently everything at home has "slid" a bit!
Yesterday was "World Book Day" - though I think the definition of "World" is a bit flexible, since, as far as I'm aware, it was only celebrated in the U.K! Still, it's a bit of fun.
As I am a Book Binder and have a shop on Etsy to sell my work. Also, as I love to give presents and my books are always well-received as gifts, I thought I would have a little Giveaway.
I am also celebrating the birth, on Tuesday, of this young lady:
Therefore, my giveaway book just has to be Pink!
Book Prize One
This is a small, felt-covered sketchbook or mini album. It has stiffened covers, covered with soft pink felt and lined with lovely mauve mulberry paper.
The sections are stitched with silver thread, which shows on the spine. There are 12 pages (24 sides) of good quality, thick drawing paper.
The paper is stiff enough to hold scrap pages, or photos, though the book wouldn't take too many thick embellishments before going out of shape.
It would be great as a pocket sketch book, notebook for planning a special occasion (a baby shower perhaps?), even a small guest book for a special party - I'm sure you could think of your own use for it!
It measures approx 5" x 4.5".
To make it extra nice, I will attach a ribbon fastening, in your choice of colour.
To Enter this Giveaway:
Leave a comment, telling me your colour choice for the ribbon tie and whether you'd like it to wrap right round the cover lengthways (like this book), widthways (like this book) or just be attached at the front edges, with or without a brad or button (like this book)!
Book Prize Two
I thought it might be nice to offer another little book also. A while ago, I bought two hand-made books from Helen Coldwell, of Bad Books.
I have a dear little mini-note book here, with a leather-look cover, lined with Liberty print fabric.
The pages are of stiff, creamy-peach coloured paper and it has a stitched binding, which shows along the spine.
It's a sweet little book, only 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches in size, with 40 pages (80 sides).
It would fit in almost any pocket or handbag, to hold your special notes or little sketches - how about that "Ideas" notebook that was being discussed in Blogland the other day?

Leave a comment to tell me what you'd do with this teeny weeny book!
If you leave a comment for each book, then you're in with a chance to win both! I will select two comments at random, one from the "Pink Book" comments and one from the "Mini Book" comments.
The giveaway closes on Friday evening next week (March 12th).

Also, while we're on the subject of Giveaways, why not pop over to my niece's blog? Keri-Anne is having a giveaway, in collaboration with That Unreliable Girl. The prize is a print of one of Keri-Anne's lovely photographs.
Two giveaways for the price of one - Bargain!
