What 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.
I 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!
You'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.

As 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.
