A Very Happy Birthday Giveaway! CLOSED


CONGRATULATIONS!! We have a winner!! Thank you all for your sweet wishes and thoughtful comments! I loved how so many of you want to learn calligraphy for service-oriented purposes.

I chose sort of randomly. I just scrolled to a random page of comments and picked my favorite (because it’s my birthday and I can). I love that Meghan wants to do things for others. So I chose her.

Meghan’s comment: I will use my art of writing calligraphy to personalize 2014 planners and notebooks and have a sale in my school for the benefit of the families who were affected by the flood and the earthquake here in the Philippines. My schoolmates can get personalized items with their calligraphed names on them; they also helped put smiles on the victims’ faces.


It’s my birthday! Happy day for me! This also marks my blog’s 6th birthday. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging here for that long. NUTS.


We’re not doing a whole lot around our house today (although I did get the gold iPhone I ordered 6 weeks ago. Woot Woot!!!).

I couldn’t let this day pass without doing something here to thank you for following along on all of my adventures; so I’m giving away a calligraphy kit! One lucky person will win a calligraphy kit, a workshop subscription stuffed with a few extra surprises ($150+ value). It includes:

  • pencil
  • pencil sharpener
  • nib holder
  • 2 pen nibs (Brause ef66 and Hunt 22b)
  • acrylic ink
  • cleaning wipes
  • a paper sampling (tracing, gridded and plain)
  • lettering guide and alphabet sheets
  • 1 coupon code for istilllovecalligraphy.com workshop
  • and a few extra good surprises

The giveaway closes Wednesday, November 6, and the winner will be announced November 7. To enter:

      AMY WEBBER (webberae02) deserves this set! She selflessly gives her time, money, and creativity to all of her friends helping them plan weddings, showers, and all types of celebrations!

      I would LOVE to win this! I have been asking my hubby to get this for me – for Christmas, for Valentines, For Mothers Day, For my Birthday and again for Christmas. I don’t think he gets the hint.

      If I won, I would definitely start sending snail mail more. I would make some beautiful art for my home and maybe start and etsy shop?

      Uh, greatest giveaway ever! I would make shweeeeet posters and stationary sets and give them as gifts. Also, I would probably jump up and down squeaking to my engaged friends about doing all of their invitations.
