august giveaway! - win a fancy deer notebook!

With back to school just around the corner, it seemed fitting to have another notebook giveaway... awwww yahhhh! And even if you aren't in school and haven't been in years... why not make the neighborhood kids jealous by toting this fancy deer notebook around. Imagine all the things you could write... shopping lists, short stories, gangsta rap lyrics, wiccan spells, tic-tac-toe, dear john letter.... really the list is endless, people.

Enter to win by posting a comment telling me what your favorite subject in school was/is... perhaps it was math? english? cheerleading? smoking behind the fence? I'll make a random draw from the fabulous trophy cup on Monday, August 24th. Please remember to include some contact info (etsy shop, blog, website, or e.mail address) and please only one entry per person.

Good luck and be sure to check back next Monday to see if you won!

My favorite class in high school was my newspaper class. I was editor of the monthly campus paper and I must have really liked it because now I'm a reporter for a major newspaper!

Fantastic notebook - very eye-catching. Beautiful blog, as well.

such an adorable notebook!

My favorite subject was actually math with a close second of ceramics. I especially liked Algebra. I always felt like math was an entire class dedicated to figuring out puzzles. I loved it!

anna said...

Another GREAT giveaway. This is super cute!

My fave subject was definitely math - though I ended up in art/english fields. Strange.

I enjoyed studying a bit of boys too :)

I had an interior design class in high school. That was so fun!

I was also in an honors program art class that you could only take at the invitation of the art instructor. We could sculpt, paint, make pottery or jewelry. We had access to so many different types of techniques and mediums. It was AWESOME!

I love your shop and your blog!

Physics! We got to blow things up, play with fire, and even watched our teacher break a cinder block on a student's chest with a sledgehammer while they lied on a bed of nails. So cool!
All of my neighbors will be jealous of this notebook, no doubt about that.

Does Recess count as a course in school? We learned how to share and play together at recess!
Ok - guess not.
Then I guess I would have to pick reading.

I was such a nerd in high school. I loved anything math or science related....probably because I was good at it. Considering I was also a perfectionist, I really didn't like anything I didn't excel at.

I think one of my top favorites was Oceanography class. We got to take an awesome trip to the Fl Keys every year and went to a cool "Sea camp". I considered marine biology/oceanography as a major in college but ended up with a degree in Sociology! hehe!

the Lost Earring said...

One of my favorite classes in college was called Symbol, Ritual, Myth. We spent the entire quarter learning about eastern religion and visiting temples of all sorts. My favorite "field trip" was to a Tibetan Monastery in the Seattle area. The high ceiling was painted like clouds with mandalas and there were brightly colored pillows all over the floor, huge statues three times my height, I was in awe!

You can convo me via my Etsy shop The Lost Earring :)

Dyche Designs said...

My favorite class, hhmmm, could it be break time? No seriously if I had to pick one it would be biology. I'm not a smoker but I used to sit at the back of the class striking matches to see if I could get away with it. :0)

Alright, alright, it was English.

Jen said...

Well, I was homeschooled, so I was allowed to pick all my own classes and curriculums. But I've always loved art. I can't think of the last point in my life when I wasn't taking an art class, and it has recently begun to pay off...

Creative Writing and Literature.

I wanted to peel the words off the page, place them in my pocket, and feel comforted knowing they were jumbling about in there all day.

my favorite subject was always science. I LOVED biology and physiology - it just made so much sense! and it was interesting, to boot. unlike math, which neither made sense NOR was interesting. :)

ChallenCharms said...

It was definitely history. We hid under the desks one day, locked the door and turned off the classroom lights to make the teacher think she had the wrong classroom. The windows were tinted, so she couldn't see above desk level. Ah memories.

Lynsi said...

Throughout grade school I took Art every chance I had. I was the first person in my middle school to be able to have two art classes in my schedule. I just took the same art class twice - and I loved it! I remember not wanting to leave my work on Fridays and although it would be the dreaded Monday I would at least have Art class to look forward to. Then in high school the AP class I took for college credit was Art! I have been creating art since I can remember and it has always been a part of my life.

babalisme said...

LOL-smoking behind the fence!! I wish THAT had been my best subject at school.

I think art and craft were my best and favorite subject back then, including "art" on every other class aka doodling on your notebooks and not listening to the teachers. I made seriously great looking art during class, teachers' babbling is always a great source of inspiration :)

However, the notebook is soooo pretty I'd really want to own one, but then again, I might not be able to jot down my pen/pencil on it, I'm too scared I will ruin its beauty.

IckyDogCreations said...

I was always a sucker for anything science! (I'm an RN, what can I say!). But also enjoyed art!

Love the notebook.

I loved world history - it was the way the class was taught. The teacher was dynamic, weaving stories in all the time, and chose interesting themes to cover - things he knew about / was passionate about... and the result was a very interested me.

Thanks
