i'd love to play! the rosy gardens makes me very happy - very wallpaper-y.

(p.s. i love reading your entries. most of the time they are exactly what i need to hear, like you're my personal motivational speaker or something. but i don't feel like i can gush thanks every day. so thank you. every day.)

jo said...

hello marta!

oh, rosy gardens, rosy gardens, please!!! i would love to win :)

meg said...

wait, so is *every* page complete with a fill-in-the-blank form reminiscent of my favourite marta posts? because it looks like they are... (trying not to go crazy with my excitement)

either way, they are beautiful. megxx

Abbey said...

Love your blog...I always look forward to your new posts! Last month, I did the whole blog every day thing, and I used your Dear Diary as one of my entries. It was one of my favorites to write!

Hope you are having a Happy 2008 so far...

As for my fave mini-diary, I LOVE the rosy gardens...but I just bought two of those, so I choose the fancy schmancy stripes. : )

I try and read your blog every evening before I goto bed. I enjoy your entries and the style in which you write which clears my head and inspires me for the next day.

I'm afraid the giveaway is going to close before I decide between fancy schmancy stripes and rosy gardens. If I have to pick, I guess the edge goes to the stripes, but it's close. Thank you for all your charm and whimsy.

Elisabeth said...

Hi Marta!
I found your site a couple months ago by accident. It's amazing. You're so special, and you really affected my life sharing your joy and your thoughts.

My husband thinks your mini diaries are beautiful too!

I love the Fancy Schmancy Stripes design. Since I was 13 (I'm 26 now), I've been keeping a "moments" journal to write down everything I want to remember. It's wonderful what I may have forgotten in my life if it wasn't recorded. I'd love to have your fill-in-the-blank pages for a visual of "loves" and reflections.

Thank you for touching so many people!

Best,
Elisabeth Abrams

Summer said...

Oh goodness marta, you know hosting a giveaway will just drag all us wallflowers out onto the dance floor. I've been reading your blog for... well, for a WHILE now, and you're a real inspiration to me. Yeah, yeah, that sounds cheesy, but I'm a young and impressionable youth (haha), and I really appreciate the emphasis you put on remember the details, not just in the stuff you make but just in life in general. It's just nice to know not everyone is taking all these pretty things in the world around us for granted.

I love your fancy schmancy stripes journals.

donnae said...

I love ( and would love!)the rosy garden!

Kristi said...
