:: end of summer & a giveaway! ::

august give-away!!

Time for another Elegant Musings giveaway! After wracking my brain as to what to do for a giveaway, especially after the wildly popular vintage paper packets drawing, I decided to have a drawing for a small set of handmade tags! I make these to use with my vintage jewelry sold in the shoppe, and thought that they’d make great gift tags (or whatever!) as well.

If you’d like to be entered for a chance to win a set of six handmade gift tags, featuring vintage papers and ribbon embellishments, please leave a comment in this post with your name (or screen name if you prefer). I’ll do a drawing of one name August 27th, and will post the winner’s name here. They will have 48 hours to email me and let me know their contact information and I’ll drop the package in the mail! So, comment away and good luck!

prepping for the new schoolyear...

Tomorrow is when my summer officially ends. The school year promises to start off right though, with my printmaking class being the first!! I’m so excited because its with my favorite teacher and is a class that I’ve been dying to take for over a year. This is the first semester I haven’t run out a week before and loaded up on gobs of back to school supplies, mostly because I don’t feel the need to (after four semesters at college, it just isn’t that big of a deal!). But I do need a notebook to keep random notes in; usually a plain, spiral-bound notebook suffices. This year though, I bought a classic composition book (for $0.25!) and am decoupaging all kinds of vintage paper, words and images on the cover to make it more “me”.

*sigh* The end of summer is always so bittersweet... Anyone else heading back to the hallways of learning soon??

cheers & creativity,

Oh, enter me, enter me!

Yes, the end of summer is bitter-sweet, but then I do get so excited about fall. That said, no, I don't have classes to start! I hope the upcoming semester goes well for you (and I'll be getting back to you soon, I promise)!

Yes, we are also gearing up for school, although we still have 13 days. My daughters are also making collages for their notebooks...I really like that they don't want to be like everyone else!

These will be great for the holidays!

School for me starts relatively soon as well, and it is quite far away.
