GIVEAWAY: Bookjigs and journals sponsored by the Franklin Mill

Home-Image_Bookjigs-in-a-Row

 

A couple of weeks ago, Russ from The Franklin Mill contacted me about a potential giveaway to be hosted at Dear Author. We actually get these kinds of inquiries regularly but they aren’t well suited to our readership. But when I went to the Franklin Mill website, I fell in love. Not just with the adorable book jigs featured above, but all the little journals, notebooks, pencils, and even sticky books.

The attention to detail is wonderful. Take a look at the spine of the box that holds the notecards. It’s like a mini book.

I ordered a few items just for myself. Currently I am fighting my daughter over ownership of them. Then Franklin Mill surprised me with a few other things.

Everything I received from the sticky notes to the journals were all well constructed. One of the items I was sent was a luscious felt notebook.  It’s hard to get a sense in the picture, but the felt is very thick and has a wonderful texture. I’ll be ordering a few in some different colors when I’m done using the gray.

All in all, I was highly impressed with the quick shipment (for the products I ordered) and the quality. So I’m happy to present this giveaway to you. Five winners will be chosen and you’ll get one bookjig of your choice and one other item from the Franklin Mill website excluding the magnets and the pencils.

    My favourite non-tech stationery item is a big batch of stickers I got working in China years ago. It’s a totally random assortment of stickers, big and small, sparkly and fuzzy, some with nonsensical “English” sayings that crack me up whenever I stick them on an envelope and picture the receiver’s face when they find it.

    My favorite non-tech stationary item is a little nerdy – I track my daily workouts in a hardbound day calender. :-) I really love my 2013 one better than my 2014: my 2013 calender was leather bound, a beautiful blue and had silver edged pages. Sadly they stopped making that calender so my current one is cute (red) but not as cute as 2013. Maybe Franklin Mill will have the 2015 calendar of my dreams!

    I love my wolf journal which I received as a Christmas gift last year. It’s handmade with real leather and it’s oh so pretty! Which, of course, means I’m afraid to write in it! lol I also love a good pen; I have some fountain pens that I pull out for special occasions, as well as some good quality, but simple, pens for every day. They must write smoothly though! :)

    I love all kinds of stationery and related items – especially pretty journals. But, I cannot live without steno pads. I love the size and the lines and even the pale green color. I keep them by my computer for quick notes of things I need to remember, websites to visit, specific dates/times needed for this or that and even temporary passwords and the like. I never tear out the pages, just keep going until they are all filled. Then I go through to find anything I might really need to keep and put that in its proper place before tossing. Often I just keep them for several months in case the information is needed.

    I love cool post-it notes–with sayings, pictures, designs, etc.–but they have to actually stick too, which some of the cheaper ones don’t. I also love Blackwing pencils…they write so nicely, and bold tip (1.6 or so) pens. I can’t stand fine tip ones, they make me too self-conscious about my penmanship ;)

    The pen that sticks to my refrigerator to write grocery lists. The back is completely flat with a magnet along it so the entire pen sticks to the fridge. Always handy and it never falls off. I got it through a goodies bag at my college’s alumni association and I’ve never been able to find anything similar. I dread the day the ink runs out.

    I love moleskins. My high school teacher actually taught us how to make them a few years back, and I’ve been loving mine. They’re really convenient, and easy to carry around on the off chance I’ll actually have a cool idea for something, be it a story, a recipe, or a even an essay for school.

    I love variety packs of colored pens, pencils &/or markers, and those picture-cubes of sticky notes. Also, uni-ball &/or pilot pens.

    Thanks for this giveaway! It’s a fantastic idea!

    Even though I have three different electronic calendars that sync to Google calendar, I love my paper calendar. There’s something about writing an appointment or deadline on the page that makes it stick in my mind and become real. And I like shopping for a new one each year and finding just the right style.

    I have an astronaut pen that is my very favourite pen ever, and yes it really does write underwater. Even better it’s nice and smooth no matter how awkward my position is. I would cry if I lost it (and would definitely become a wizard to get it back).

    Journals! And pretty pens! When I was little I thought I having a computer journal like Dougie Houser would be the best thing ever, but as an adult I realize there’s no real way to keep it private when it’s digital. So gorgeous journals and multicolor pens are “a few of my favorite things” :)

    I love ballpoint pens, especially the ones that are fine point. They’re very common in Asia, but they don’t seem to make them as thin here in the States.

    On library books that still have the white strip of paper where due dates used to be recorded, I like to use a special stamp: it has a picture of a nightcapped owl reading on the moon and to the right is “On Lune Until ___/__/20__”. There’s a light French pun on “lune” and “loan”. I love it. I wish libraries still stamped dates on the book. It’s interesting to see the history of the book’s circulation.

    My grandfather always used a fountain pen. I loved the appearance of the ink on his cards and letters — the blue ink, the shape and weight of the letters — so unlike a ballpoint pen. I can never use a fountain pen because of my smearing left hand, but I do so love seeing things written with a fountain pen.
