sneak peaks: new journals and a giveaway

Working on two new journals right now: an I Love You journal and a color-schemed Mixed Paper journal :) These will be available in the shop later this week. 
GIVEAWAY: I'm currently planning different color schemes for new journals. Any color schemes you'd like to see or suggest? :) Leave a comment on this post for a color scheme idea and a name for your color scheme! For example: pinks and yellows and vintage book pages could be named "Strawberry Lemonade". If I choose that one, I will create and send you one of those new journals. The journal will be 4"x6" and 15-20 pages. It will be ready to ship 7-10 days after comments close. Please keep names of color schemes appropriate and uplifting :)

One comment per person. If color schemes are suggested multiple times, I will use random.org to pick a winner of that color scheme. International entries welcome. Please leave your email address in the comment. Comments will close on Friday, January 11 and I will announce a winner that evening :)

**Please note: I will be looking at suggestions and names and possibly using them for future journals for sale in my shop, even if it is not the color scheme I choose as a winner for this giveaway. I will put credit in the listing for the name of the color scheme, since I didn't come up with it :)

  4. I would LOVE to see a red, white, and blue motif and I would call it "An American Girl". As a military wife, I know so many gals who could benefit from having a cute little journal to send to their husbands on deployment, or chronicle homecomings, promotions, etc! I can't wait to see what your new one is! I LOVE the "I Love You" papers! Can't wait to see that in the shop!
