Ecosystem Journal Giveaway

Today I'm hosting a giveaway that I think many of you will be interested in, Ecosystem journals. Most of you know that I'm a big fan of journals as I've shared before here and here. I use my journals to keep all my craft ideas in one place. I've found if I don't write an idea down, it's lost forever. So now, I have one for home and one that travels in my purse. One never knows where they'll find inspiration.

For this giveaway, three lucky readers will win one ecosystem journal. They will have their choice of a flexi-cover notebook in any size, artist or author, in lagoon, kiwi, watermelon, or grape! To see these options, visit the official site.

Here's a few unique features of ecosystem journals that you might find interesting:

* made of 100% post consumer recycled paper

*each journal has a unique tracking number in case your journal is ever lost (top right picture)

*inside pocket to store other items (bottom left picture)

  8. Like others have said, I'd use it for some sketching. Perhaps to try and get out some new ideas I have in my head, or ideas for new ACEO projects, instead of breaking out the ATCs and marking them all up with sketches I don't like. Cleaner cards will look better with I use more transparent media. :3

  11. Love journals(exclamation point, did I mention my "one" key is broken...?)

    I currently use composition notebooks and fill them with everything. Calendar pages, ideas, journal entries, doodles, drawings, craft projects, recipes, lists...I think you get the idea. After just a few weeks of toting my loveley notebook around with me, the poor cover starts to come loose. One of these babies would work out just perfect for me.

    Take care : D

  59. I would use my journal to write in! I keep a diary, and someday when someone finds my ancient diary like Anne Frank (totally will happen, by the way, just not in such terrible circumstances. Hopefully.) then they will be razzle-dazzled by my totally amazing and gut-wrenchingly beautiful notebook in which I recorded all of my partially worthwhile thoughts. :D

  60. I would carry around my journal everywhere I go, and jot down inspirations and ideas right as they come :)

  61. I would use my journal for exactly the same thing you do. I realized a few months ago how many ideas I was losing because I didn't write them down. I have a journal that I take with me everywhere I go because I also noticed that when I went out and saw things in the world is usually when I found most of my inspiration. In something my children did, in nature and gestures of other people. Love the pockets, too! I have stuff in my current journal that falls out all the time. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway. ♥

  62. Science education & outreach is important to me, and it seems like my best ideas for workshops, field trips, etc. happen when I'm doing something besides brainstorming! And hey, ecology is my specialty!

  63. I carry around and keep different journals for different purposes. This one I'd use to either record amazingly funny or poignant things the youth I work with say or to record brainstorms for article/writing ideas.
