Hand-Bound Book Giveaway!!

I still do a lot of crafting- although right now most of my belongings are in storage so it's hard to do much- but I don't often post photos because I'm not so great at taking photos that look halfway decent. Someday I'll learn more about photography, and maybe even get a good camera, but right now it's not at the top of my list, and it seems pointless to post a photo of  an item if the photo doesn't do it justice.

In any case I am joining the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival and giving away a custom-made blank book like this one only without the wear & tear. It won't look exactly like this but I can give the winner a pretty wide choice of book cloth and decorative paper so it will be customized to your taste (within the limits of my paper collection, of course).  

All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know you'd like to enter. Make sure you don't post anonymously, or I won't have any way to get in touch with you and your entry will be invalidated. I'll pick an entry randomly this weekend and let you know on Monday who the winner is. Good luck!

Updated to add, the contest will end Sunday at noon (pacific time).
