ohoo journal giveaway!



hanna-mae [or H, as she is commonly known] from the ohoo etsy shop contacted me last week to see if she could do a giveaway here on the stationery place -- and i immediately said YES! H is a student just getting ready to head back to school, and wanted to clean out her inventory before making the cross-country trek.

i love the cool designs and illustrations of her handmade journals. each book cover is drawn and screenprinted by hand, using an embroidery hoop [how cool is that?! WAY better than the yudu machine, in my opinion :) ]. then she cuts and folds 20 pages and stitched them all together to form these neat journals.



[i think the zebra is my favorite...it would be perfect for a friend in california who just got back from a trip to south africa!]

H uses handmade lino cuts for all the printing on her cards and journals -- check out more designs here in the ohoo shop.



and now for the exciting part: H will give away one journal to THREE different stationery place readers!

all you have to do is comment below telling me which one you like best. you'll get a bonus entry if you tweet about this or write about it on your blog -- just be sure to leave a link to the tweet / post in the comments section below.

you have from now until monday, august 17th at midnight to enter! contest is open to both US and international readers.

don't forget to check out the ohoo etsy shop before august 31 -- then the shop closes till october when H is back and ready for business.

  5. Oh my goodness, I'll take any of these adorable gems. But I've always been a fan of Zebra's. I chose the Zebra as my animal of choice to do a report on in 2nd grade!

  6. I love these journals!! And, since I don't tweet or update my blog..I think the contest should include your "favorite journal entry" to qualify you for the giveaway. (I like to rewrite the rules so their convenient for me).

    Fav entry: March 13, 2003 "Met Lyndsey at Tanner Building for yummy salads. Talked about how emo she is, and how she is going to help me be more emo for the upcoming Juliana Theory concert"

    haha!
