Winners of the Five-Year Journals

Congratulations!  Zack picked your names!  You can contact me or I will be giving you a shout this week.

And don't be worried that you'll be a little behind.  You can either choose to catch up or wait for next year, as the year is written in by YOU.  So you can start at any time!

If you didn't win, I'd still highly recommend getting one.  You can buy one, or purchase a pretty notebook and designate each page as a day with space for five years.  I'm currently using the "Q&A" book because it's fun to answer the question (and quick!)  but I also ordered a traditional journal from Levenger to record my actual day.

The next giveaway will be coming as son as I can slide out of bed and work with some very cool things by PJ Tool Jewelry & Craft, folks who have been over generous in their stamping and tool giveaways.

Rainy day today with plummeting temperatures, some my head and joints are whimpering "ow ow ow".  The cats already curled up in my lap, so I'm taking today to read Pat Conroy's latest book, "The Death of Santini" (thanks, Jen!).

Lori Anderson creates jewelry and bead kits as well as collaborative mixed media art with her son, Zack. Visit her shops by clicking on the right side bar of this blog (please and thank you!). She is also the creator of the Bead Soup Blog Party® and author of the book "Bead Soup" via Kalmbach Publishing.


  1. Congratulations to the winners!

  2. Congrats, winners! Y'all have been blessed with a pretty sweet gift! Lori, those journals are quite beautiful and a generous gift! I'll be checking out the source (thanks for posting that!) to see about getting one for myself, and maybe for some special birthday presents! Lori always finds the nearest stuff!
    Feel better, my dear friend. This weather isn't very kind to me, either. Jazzy & I will be catching up on my shows on the DVR that I missed while in Florida with my Mom & Aunt Barbara. Loves & Hugs to you, Zack, & Rick <3

  3. Congratulations Journal Winners. May you have a very Happy New Year...

  4. Congrats to all the winners! Thank you to Lori for being so generous!! Hugs to you Lori! Be Blessed!!!

  5. I'm going to pout for just a moment because I did not win. Then, I will say congratulations to those who did get their names pulled out of the hat. *smile*

    Congratulations winners! Lori, that Q&A journal sounds like such fun, I may have to get one for myself. I did start a zentangle journal but that does not count, I'm thinking.

  7. Congrats to all the winners. I do hope everyone will keep us updated on how their journaling projects are going. Hope you feel better Lori. Bundle up and stay warm, or IN if at all possible. With this polar vortex whirling over the country, temps are predicted for -65 below in some areas.

  8. Congratulations to all the lucky journal winners!

    The weather is reeking havoc on my body as well; I'm glad you're taking it easy and trying to relax the best you can :)

  9. These journals look great. Congrats to the winners, hope everyone can start off with a warm and cozy entry! Be well ~~T

  10. Those journals are awesome, congratulations to the winners. Take care Lori and snuggle witht he kitties.
