A little while ago it dawned on me that I, in over three years, I’ve never had a giveaway on this blog! Sure, there were a few sponsored ones but nothing personal.
I just recently noticed that this blog crossed 200 members via google friend connect! What’s better time to hold it than now?! So this is just a thank you giveaway. I LOVE this ride that is blogging, & thank you for engaging with me by visiting/commenting/tweeting/everything else & just making it more awesome.
I kept wracking my brains about what to give away. I wanted something that somehow related to the topics I cover on this blog, gender neutral (so anyone can enter!) & easy to ship world wide.
Finally I found something that I think is perfect- I bought myself this super cute Retro mini eco-journal set, illustrated by the very talented Julia Rothman (You can buy it here- USA India) earlier this year & since I loved it I just ordered another for this giveaway.
It’s eco-friendly & completely adorable. There are four eco journals in the set- the first one is especially special, to me. It has old Kodak brownies, Polaroid land cameras, Polaroid 1000s, rangefinders, film canisters & film strips. I’m using mine to note down details of films I use. The other three have old rotary phones ☏, gaming consoles / controllers & boomboxes! (I’ve photographed my set, so the winner will get a brand new, unopened set!)

Update: I am so thrilled to see all these entries! In final drawing, if there are more than 180 entries, I will order another set & pick a second winner!

Now let’s get down to business!

You do not have to be a blogger to enter! Just make sure you complete the compulsory entry. There are five optional entries that you can do to increase your chances of winning. Giveaway is open internationally!

Thank you for the great response to this giveaway! The response to this giveaway has encouraged me to plan giveaways more regularly. There were 176 entries (just 4 more & I would have been giving away another). I will probably use Rafflecopter next time onwards.
