Saturday night giveaway.

Out of chaos comes creation, right?

My desk is a terrific mess right now. The other day a couple pieces of mess ended up sitting next to each other, kind of like that "you've got your chocolate in my peanut butter" commercial from my childhood, and I thought they might look neat on a project.

The tea packets I got in a tea swap at least a year ago, and saved in the kitchen drawer because I thought they were so pretty, the black ribbon came tied around a notepad that somebody gave me, and was also hanging out in the kitchen drawer, the ticket is from the parking lot at the Newport News Fall Festival and has been in, you guessed it, the kitchen drawer since then. (I cleaned out the kitchen drawers last week, can you tell?) And the green ribbon was part of a decoration on a packet of little cards I got from an Etsy shop a few weeks ago. Amazingly, it never had to live in the kitchen drawer but settled in directly on my desk.

One-and-a-half "How I Met Your Mother" episodes later (Todd's watching them downstairs)--voila!

It's got a little pocket in the back cover, too, for a bookmark or a packet of tea:

The book is an unlined Moleskine journal, they're super nice to write in.

So I would like to give this to somebody who would enjoy it, because I just needed to do something creative for my soul tonight. Plus, it cleared four tiny things off the chaos of my desk!

Leave a comment and tell me what your favorite kind of tea is. Or if you don't like tea, then tell me what you DO like to drink. I'll pull a name Wednesday morning.

Your journal is great! It's perfect to sit down with a cuppa. I really don't have a favorite. I haven't tried a tea I haven't liked. I wish I had as productive Saturday as you!

Sorry--my computer was having a moment so I had to delete. Your journals are awesome! TFS!

You put my sense of cleaning up to shame. I simply drop everything into a trash compactor and wonder later why I did that ...

Aww ... aren't you sweet?! :D Glad to help inspire you to shoo some of the crabbiness away! And you're right ... sometimes a mess gives us a peek at something we'd never considered before. I'd consider myself honored to be entered into your drawing! And I like all kinds of tea except rooibos!
