6th Blogoversary Bookmark Giveaway

While in Chicago for my goddaughter’s baptism – let’s stop for a second and admire little Charlotte. Isn’t she a doll baby?


Back to the point… I met up with Julie from JulzReads for some drinks, crafting, and bookish conversation. The crafting was based on something from Pinterest that Julie tweeted. We picked up some paint samples, stamped on them, and made them into bookmarks. These bookmarks were the ones I alluded to in my 6th Blogoversary post last week. In all, I felt that 15 were fit for a celebratory giveaway. Here they are:


The contest will be open until 5pm EST on Friday, January 25th. I will then use random.org to select the 15 winners. Good luck and thanks again for your support of Literate Housewife over the year

For some reason my Google form isn’t loading. It worked last night, but it’s possible I imagined it because I was so darn tired. Leave a comment below to be entered in the giveaway.

                          I think that baby is destined to be in front of the camera…look at her posing! She is gorgeous! And I love this clever little idea for bookmarks. Seems logical when you see it, but these kinds of ideas don’t live in my brain. I’d love to be entered into your giveaway.
