“I wish you would post more often” Me too!
“I really don’t know!” Me either!

I wasn’t sure what to do for the giveaway, but I wanted it to be special! So I asked my friend Emily for some blogger advice, and she thought it would be cool if I did something owl related! (If you haven’t noticed I am obsessed with all things owl!) So I found an ADORABLE owl journal, it had a soft (fake)leather cover with an owl etched on it. I was totally jealous, but they only had one…. On the way home I took off all the stickers…Got home, and there was writing all in the first two pages -_-
Sooo my Mom went shopping, looking for another one like the one I had bought, but instead found an even cuter one!! Now I’m even more jealous guyss!! XD OK so here’s what you can win!
This Love Owl Canvas Journal is beyond cute! And it has these adorable flowers on the pages!
The winner will get the Journal, a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card + A custom crochet hat! I have several different styles that I can make so you will get to choose one and pick the colors!
Click HERE to enter the giveaway! And that’s it! =D
