Blissen Saturday Giveaway

Redwood Forest Datebook by BlissenWhat better way to welcome in the new year than with a new date book? Well look no further because I found this terrific store--Blissen--that sells notecards, journals, and the cutest teeny-weeny mini journals that make me want to weep for cuteness.

Blissen is the seven year-old offspring of Jill Bliss, an artist and illustrator, that specializes in "useful artisan goods made from recycled or sustainable fabrics and papers" but though I've already mentioned their paper goods--the first thing I noticed in the store--there's oh so much more to love.

Notebook Cozy by BlissenI carry my moleskine notebook and rollerball pen everywhere and this little notebook cozy is perfect for keeping things where I need them (this is my absolute favorite item). My loose change rattling around in the bottom of my purse? Well it would look very nice in one of these cute elephant coin purses. And necklaces? I've seen lots of jewelry but I've never seen necklaces like these--I am in love with those colors!

Spring Flowers Necklace by BlissenYou'll get lost in everything Blissen has to offer. Lost in a good way.

For this week's giveaway Blissen has given a Redwood Forest 2008 date book identical to the one pictured above, winning is easy--just follow the directions below and keep your fingers crossed.

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday go to the giveaway entry form on this page and enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

I'm sorry but this giveaway is only open to those with a United States' mailing address. Good luck!

I Am LegendAs a sidenote--Andrew and I went to see I am Legend on Wednesday night and it is now, officially, my Scariest Movie Ever. Loved it, loved Will Smith, but it scared me like nothing else. There was this one time when I actually pulled my feet up off the floor, with my knees up to my chest, and wrapped my arms around my legs in panic. I watched quite a bit of it through my scarf in an "I just can't stand to watch" way.

Was it just me? Did anyone else think it was as intense as I did? It's clean--no language, skin or gore--but it's not for kids. Oh no. Maybe I just don't get out much and don't see enough scary movies but this one nearly did me in, perhaps because I didn't realize what it was all about, the previews did a good job of hiding the real story.

Loved it.

Ohhhhh hubby really wants to see that movie but I don't "do" scary. Thank you for the warning. I think I'll have him go it alone! That giveaway looks too tempting, too!

EEEK. I hear you on clean, non-gory scary. Ever seen "The Changeling" with George C. Scott?? OMGOSH.

I have seen it eleventyhundred times and it still freaks me out.

:S

P.S.
What is the thing with girls and their intense love of all things "Mini"? I could spend all day ooohing and ahhhing in the trial size aisle. (Those little cans of soda???? OHMYFREAK!) I think it has something to do with our maternal instincts.

jubilee said...

I knew from the first that this was a movie for the husband to see with the guys. All the amazing dark photography is a dead giveaway for me.
BTW when you say "scary" do you mean suspenseful scary or this-could-really-happen kind of scary? Suspenseful scary I can do as long as husband is there to pick me up off of the floor!

SabineM said...

Oh wow, I had no desire to see it. But NOW that you said this..mmm I might sneak and go see it! THOUGH, I am dying to see Kite Runner!

Cecily R said...

I love that notebook cozy!! That is the best idea!

Jon loved that movie. I didn't go (that's the kind of flick that he sees with his brothers), but now I'll be more willing to see it with him when it comes out on DVD. :)

Robin said...

Note to self: Avoid I Am Legend at all costs.

Off to go enter the giveaway now :-).

Annie said...

OOps! I wish I would have know how scary it was before I let my sister take my 10-year old daughter. She was up at 2:00 a.m. cuz she couldn't sleep. Bad mom!

Mrs Mecomber said...

The movie is set in New York City, correct?

It's not scary! We have people like that crawling all over the place, all day long!

I want to enter the giveaway. The movie the legend looked like it was scary. I don't think that I will see it.

Mrs. W said...

Zombie stuff always scares me. I'll leave that one for the fellas!

This is crazy, I saw you at Costco this morning and didn't say anything because I didn't want you to think I was a stalker. Happy New Year!

Scribbit said...

Lisa--REALLY? Oh you should have said Hi, it would have been fun!

I've had people recognize me a couple times when I've been out and about and it's fun to meet in real life. :)

I hope I was on my best behavior too--btw, I usually vow never to go to Costco on a Saturday and was trying to pry my kids away from the samples. Then Lily ate a hot sausage and started crying and on and on and on . . . :)

Lisa Milton said...

I didn't think it was the scariest movie I've seen (I like 28 Days Later better) but it certainly was creepy and unnerving.

(I hear the book is different, but even better.)

Amber said...

Megan and I went to see I Am Legend tonight and we both LOVED it. Freaked us out, but we LOVED it. Can't wait to see it again with Tony.

Bonnie said...

I saw that movie with the family, and felt the same way. I was hoping that there would be a little more of that light-hearted Will Smith I love but appreciated the dark theme of the movie...I just can't say I will be excited when they actually come up with a cure for cancer due to this movie.

Sassy Lucy said...

Papa Bear says he will wait to rent this movie as it is a remake....but I know he wants to see it and I have heard nothing but good about it.

Laura said...

That movie terrified me. I was NOT prepared for it (well hidden indeed) and I almost could not handle it! I will never argue it was not a good movie or well done but I will never be able to sit through it again. Several seens I almost had to leave! Not bad, not gory just really really scary to me. Not sure why. It took me hours to come down from watching it too! My husband loved it, and I was terrified.

My Ice Cream Diary said...

I love that you have been reviewing all the movies I want to see. I keep asking my hubby to take me to I Am Legend but he refused to watch scary movies. I'm too chicken to watch a scary movie alone in a dark theater so I will have to wait till I can rent it. I can't wait.

Jacki said...

I can't wait to see that movie, either. The past coupleof years he has really put out some good movies. Thanks for the giveaway!

Nap Warden said...

I gotta go see this movie...Thanks for the review!

I am looking forward to seeing this remake -- I am partial to the Omega Man, with Charlton Heston. But I really like Will Smith and I am sure this is very good. My 17 yr. old has seen it twice!!
