Write On! Win A Ketto Designs Journal #Giveaway

 I’m never at a loss for words.  This is pretty ironic coming from someone who would barely say “boo” to her own Kindergarten teacher.  Seems I’ve always got plenty of words, or rather ideas,  rolling around in my head these days.  I read so many blogs and articles online where the writer is lamenting the fact that they don’t know what to write about next.  I haven’t hit that writer’s block yet.  In fact, I started coming up with so many ideas of what to write about, I decided if I didn’t write them down, I’d end up losing track of my ideas.  So write them down I did.

You may think that, since I spend so much of my time online, I’d be the type of person to keep all my ideas locked away somewhere in the depths of my laptop.  Not true.  I still love pen and paper, especially when it comes to keeping lists.  So I always keep a journal and pen handy for those moments when those great ideas suddenly come to me.

My journals aren’t necessarily always beautiful.  Sometimes I use one of those lined “Hilroy” notebooks that we used to use in school.  But I must confess.  I much prefer to use beautiful journals.  I LOVE beautiful journals.  Not sure why but, using a beautiful journal inspires me to write.

On a recent shopping excursion to purchase a gift for my sister, I happened upon some absolutely gorgeous journals designed by a Canadian company – Ketto Designs out of Quebec City, Quebec.  The designs on these journals are a feast for the eyes.  Gorgeous colour combinations and beautiful, eye-catching designs full of whimsical characters, adorn Ketto Designs’ journals.  Simply choosing my favourite journal proved to be a monumental task for me, as I stood there staring at the journals for 20 minutes.

In the end, I chose two Ketto Designs journals to take home with me…one for me AND one for YOU!  That’s right, House Mates, you get a chance to win your very own Ketto Designs journal. The one I chose for you is titled “Butterfly Girl”, and is featured in my picture ^ above.

I have fallen head over heels in love with “everything” Ketto Designs – not just the journals.  Check out their website to see all their other featured merchandise such as handbags, lunch boxes, coin purses, calendars…and the list goes on!

It won’t get you an entry into the giveaway (thanks to Facebook rules) but, I’d LOVE it if you LIKED Canadian Blog House on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/canadianbloghouse

    I use them to sort my thoughts, and often time it’s a stress therapy of it’s own.

    • June 22, 2013

      Sandy

      Excellent reason to use a journal, Ava. You’re right, sometimes it helps to get things down on paper instead of letting thoughts roll around in your head. Can definitely be a stress reliever. Thanks for entering!
