You may recall, a while back, my getting some great weekend mail, including some fabulous notecards from We Heart Paper. It probably goes without saying at this point that I love letterpress. I love the deeply indented lines and crisp, decisiveness, yet refinement and delicacy of letterpress designs. There is something simply luxurious about a beautifully done letterpress design...which is why I love the work of We Heart Paper. It is the best kind of letterpress - accessible but oh so well done. Swoon.
When Janie, proprietress extraordinaire, extended the incredible generosity to do a giveaway I jumped on the chance...then got busy, such is life. But I'm so glad I did!
While Janie has been busy in her own life as well and soon making a big move (hooray for life-altering changes and new discoveries!), there have been changes here as well. Like what? Well, mainly readership. Through some odd twist of fate and happenstance a post I thought twice, no three times, about writing went, I guess you could say, viral.
I was taken entirely by surprise. In a single day I surpassed months worth of readership. Since then I've waited for the bottom to fall out...but it hasn't. You stayed. You came and you stayed! I'm so thrilled!
Funny enough the surge in readership also came when I rededicated myself to the purpose of this site - to pursue my passions, to create and celebrate a positive outlook on life, to share a slice of my life, and to grow, constantly, consistently in creativity. Hopefully all of that comes while inspiring you, encouraging you to embrace an attitude of "yay", and offering something additive to your life. I truly believe the world is a jaw-dropingly amazing place, but sometimes it takes an active pursuit to embrace fully.
So, yep, I got busy...but now I can offer Janie's beautiful cards, in the oh-so-appropriate "Hello" design to welcome you, readers old and new. Welcome, welcome! Thank you so much for sharing this time and space with me - you can't know how much it means to me that you are willing to share part of your day, part of your daily life with me.
If you would like to enter the giveaway for a pack of We Heart Paper's beautiful "Hello" notecards (the perfect size, I might add), then go ahead and give me some feedback below - features you like (or dislike, that's ok too, just try to be a little nice to me please), things you want to see more of, or just say hello!
While I would love it if you would give a follow on Twitter or Facebook it won't earn you any extra credit or chances...
But, for +1 chance go ahead and give We Heart Paper a twitter follow.
Commenting closes one week from today, on May 12th at midnight. From there I'll use a random number generator to draw a winner and announce it here!
Good luck! Thank you again, and welcome! Hello!
