rifle calendar giveaway!


I love a new calendar. Crisp, clean pages...free from crinkles, coffee rings and scribbles. Flipping through leaves me thinking about what the coming months will bring: meeting my best friend's baby boy, a little school, marrying the love of my life...and then a lot of unknowns. When I spotted this Rifle Botanical Wall Calendar, I knew I needed it. A little visual grace, if you will, for a year that I feel might not look so graceful from the outside.

To celebrate the coming year, and all the excitement of 2011...I'm giving away an identical Rifle Botanical Wall Calendar to one lucky reader! Its the most beautiful calendar and the pages will make fabulous wrapping paper or scrapbooking bits after each month passes.

  20. This is sooooo cute! I actually just yesterday bought the cards you posted from Rifle and plan to use them at my wedding! Found your blog recently and am LOVING it. Just finished recreating your DIY "askin my maids" that I found on Wedding Chicks (that led me to you) and will post a link to your blog from mine when I finally post it (you know, after the bridesladies actually receive them). Took a little creative spin from your original idea, but they're perfect. Looking foward most to my own wedding on 8.18 as well as completing ALL the DIYs I'll be attempting, and collecting all the mason jars/plates/vintage vases I'll need... Cheers!

  119. The one thing I’m most excited for in 2012 is a fresh start. 01/01/12 has been a day I’ve been looking forward to each day in the year of 2011 – seriously. I feel as though the only way I am able to move on through my pain is to get out of the year which has brought me many tears and much daily grief. I’ve grown so much in 2011 and endured pain I never thought I’d live through. I’m ready to greet 2012 with open arms because I now know I am capable of so much more than I ever imagined and I’m ready to let the world watch me shine.

    ReplyDelete
