If you have a postal address in Canada or the United States and would like a chance to win this bag, maybe as a gift for someone else, please be sure to get your name into the draw by leaving a comment on this post. You have until 9:00 PM EST July 15. I’ll be announcing the winner Thursday morning, July 16. I’m now thinking about what I can offer for July’s giveaway.  🙂

June is a busy month for this family. Last Friday marked a year since my father-in-law’s passing from this life … a whole year already. Somehow, life goes on. My sister’s (mumble mumble) birthday was last week. Tomorrow is my dad’s 91st birthday! The day after that is my grandson’s 11th birthday and his graduation from elementary school is at the end of the month. My sister-in-law’s birthday falls on Father’s Day this year, which may hold sadness for her this time. For my husband too, and really for all of us missing someone dear and important to us.  As I said – somehow, life goes on.

Last weekend my husband and I were guests at a small, lovely, outdoor wedding at a location overlooking the bay. Two of our four daughters were able to be there, one was the maid-of-honour – close friends with the bride for twenty-six years. Vows were said while waves rippled over the beach. It was a gorgeous sunny day set in the middle of cooler rainy ones.

Since I’m in a bit of a writing slump lately, my focus pulled this way and that, I’d like to ask you: What is the time of year that seems to work best for your writing? Is there something about one season that inspires you more than others? 

Thanks for writing, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

 

My 6th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win!

Late, but here it is … my giveaway for June!

This time I have something for you that’s handy – something in which you can carry your books and writing supplies.  And it’s attractive, too.

Of course, you can use it for carrying other things as well, but in keeping with my main focus I’m thinking about reading and writing.

Here are the dimensions of this bag – height, width, depth:

I like bags like this; it’s made of a type of nylon fabric and has a white interior. From this one I’m sure you can even be inspired to write something fun and thoughtful if you take a good look at the butterflies and daisies decorating it.

With two handles, it’s sturdy and easy to carry. Sorry I didn’t get a better image of the handles, but you can see they are securely stitched on.

My 3rd Giveaway of 2016! Your chance to win!

Are you ready for another giveaway?

While out shopping with one of my daughters recently I had you in mind. I wanted to find something for my next giveaway. When I discovered these fun bookmarks I knew this is the one for March.

I really like this type of bookmark as it is magnetic and clips over the page in your book. It’s very hard to lose it then, and you can easily find your place because this bookmark can’t slip down between your pages. Of course, that means you have to be reading a paper book. 🙂

Take a look. Aren’t they cute? I think they’re great for book lovers, and so easy to use.  There are three on the card with instructions on the back of the card.

If you want to enter the draw for a chance to win these three magnetic bookmarks, leave a comment telling me what you usually use to mark your place in a book.

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on  Wednesday, March 9. This gives you lots of time to pass the word on to others, too. 

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the next morning for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. These could be yours!

Remember, you have until March 9 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!

PS:  I am prepared to mail these to anywhere.

My first GIVEAWAY of 2016! Your chance to win!

Hello, everyone!  Happy New Year (again)!

I decided to start this year off with a small giveaway

I like pocket planners. I know so many people now use their phones but I prefer to use a paper planner, so I’d been trying to find one for 2016. It seems around here they were in very short supply this year but I finally found this pretty pink one.  (Yes, I like pink.) It’s not actually quite as brilliant pink as shown below.

2016 plannerThis little planner is 3 1/2″ x  6 3/4″ and barely 1/4″ thick. 

The reason I am giving this one away is because a dear friend gave me one for Christmas and I don’t need both. If YOU can use it and would like to enter a draw to try to win it, I will be pleased to mail it to whomever’s name is drawn.

Here are a few shots of the inside pages.

This 2016 planner has the 2017 calendar on the back page, a measuring guide in inches in the front and in the back it’s in centimeters. Each month takes up two facing pages so you see the whole month at a glance. There’s room on the first page for your personal information, also several pages for phone numbers (or email addresses) you want to keep handy, a few pages for your notes in the back, and a section for travel/expense records for each month. Oh, and it is in both English and French.

If you want to try to win this handy 2016 monthly pink pocket planner, just leave a comment telling me why you prefer a paper planner to using an electronic one.

2016 planner.2

I want to give people enough time to enter, but since this is for a planner and it’s already nearly a week into the first month, this contest time will be short. I will use Random.org name picker to draw out one name on Wednesday next week.

The draw will be January 13th at 10:00 PM AST. (That’s 9:00 EST)

Pass the word around and be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win!
