Giveaway...on such a winter's day

Friday, February 12, 2010

My good friend Jesse hates February. I don't fault her for this. It's dark, wet, and cold. The end of winter for the most part, if you're a Memphian. (If you're secretly a vampire, though, you don't mind it so much.)

So, to cheer you up, should you need it, I'm offering a giveaway today!

12 personalized cards/envelopes, in one of the designs below:





(my etsy shop link here)

All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favorite season is and which card is your favorite design.

You have until midnight on Monday, Feb 15, and I'll announce the winner on Tuesdee, Feb. 16.

Happy February Doldrums/Vday, m'friends!

  4. ooh, i love them all! (your designs that is) but if i had to pick, i think 1 or 4. if only my name weren't so stinking short and choppy. hmph.

    and favorite season?
    in Massachusetts: Summer!
    in Texas: Spring

    Am i allowed to enter your giveaway? you can throw me out if I'm not.

  5. Hi Leslie! I'm one of Martha's friends via Elise. I love your blog and am emerging from the woodwork here.

    My favorite season is SUMMER because I get to direct camp and also I'm a teacher so it is my off season.

    My favorite design is #1.

  6. Hi! Beautiful designs, all of them! But, having to pick just one, I'd say #1 is my favorite.

    And, my favorite season? In my younger years, it was autumn or winter. Although I still love the fall colors and the snow, nowadays, my favorite season is spring. I love the newness, the renewal, the opportunity to start anew, planting a garden, finding the surprises that the spring brings.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Fall is my favorite! There's nothing like the debut of pumpkin spice lattes each year.

    And you know I love all your designs, but I'd say my current favorite is #2.

    I second Erin, throw me out as well if you need to :)

  8. Either fall or late summer when my zinnias look the best!

    I love design number 1!


  9. Looks like I am alone here, but I love winter. And #1 is neat-o.

  10. Autumn is my favorite season, and #3 is my favorite design.

    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  11. I'm a summer lover, and #2 is my favorite design!

    Thanks for the giveaway! Time for me to check out your esty store. :)

  12. SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER. I am definitely not a vampire and love hot weather (especially being able to play golf & swim).
    I love all of your designs but I love #1 the most!

  13. fall. hands down favorite.

    your designs...not so easy to choose. 1 or 2? 1 or 2? imma say 2.

  14. I'd say either 1 or 3 are my favorite design! I can't choose! I think it would come down to what my name would look like in the font type. As for my favorite season....definitely FALL! Love all of the smells and colors that come with the season!

  15. Ooooh, love them all (seasons AND stationery)!
    I guess #1 and as for season... hmmm. Summer because of all the DELICIOUS pie-makin' fruit in season! Mmmm, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and more!

  16. what a great idea!!! my fave is numero 4. simple and sweet, with a touch of color... just like SPRING, which is my favorite season!!! haha.

  17. I definitely like summer best, it's so warm and fun with no school and all.
    And design number one is amazing, I love that color.

  18. Hey, Leslie! I stumbled across your blog and so glad I did! Your work is beautiful! I'm going to add a link to your site on my blog so my customers can hook up with you too.

    So, my favorite design is #1, and my favorite season is fall. We got married in the fall, our twins were born in the fall, thanksgiving at my gparents' farm is my favorite holiday and there's always football can there be a better season?! Hug Gerald and Suzy for Michael and I. Hope all is great w you guys!

  19. Hey Leslie!

    I'll participate just for FUN! Feel free to throw me out of the contest, since I just won some for Presley!

    I have to say that I do love February because it's birthday month for us around here, so that's fun! But, my all time favorite season is FALL for sure!!!! I love the temperature, the food, the clothes, and yes, the Starbucks drinks!

    I love design #4 the best!

  20. I like #1.

    My favorite season is the one that I'm in! I love all the seasons, especially the change from one to the next. I love living in a place where the four seasons are each beautiful in their own way.

  21. me like #2.

    and you know my favorite season sissy, i'll give you a hint. punkins.

  22. i like numbers one and four. my favorite season is thanksgiving (i know, its really a holiday), but i love november about to change to december. makes sense?

  23. Summer, duh.

    I like the first one...

  24. Leslie, this is such a fun site--so glad your sister recommended it. I choose #1 from your lovely designs. As for seasons, as some have suggested, I try to live in the moment without looking back or too far ahead. If I must choose a season, it is spring--a time of refreshment and revitalization.

    Happy Valentine's Day to you and your readers!

  25. My favorite season is summer and I like #1

    My favorite is number 2! I love spring and I can't wait until it gets here!

  27. I like summer best because there's no school ;)
    Number one is the best stationery.

  28. oooo greed, I want it! February is my birthday month so I can't really hate it. And actually I love being a February baby because I can re-ask for neglected Christmas wishes - while I still remember what I wanted. My seasonal order goes like this: Fall, Summer, Winter, Spring. Unconventional, yes. Spring feels too bare and kind of lewd. After so many months of being cozy, I have to shed clothing all at once. Summer, I'm warmed up to the idea of less clothing and it's all lazy and dreamy. Fall is awesome, just because. And winter has Christmas and my birthday.

    I like design #2. Cute little serif font that feels a little William Morris-y. But I like all your stuff really. Wink! ;)

    P.S. My word verification is "simpkers." Neat.

  29. Now that I see that I can enlarge the photos of the stationary, my pick is still #2 but now it reminds me more of Hogwarts. Very excellent.

  30. Came over here from 365 Letters...
    I'm lucky enough to live where we have all 4 seasons and I love that. But Fall is my first pick.

    And # 3 would be my pick here. Looks more like cursive handwriting...
    Glad I came over.


  31. My favorite season is winter, snow and all, and I like the third stationery design very much.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  32. I love # 3....I think it will make me feel FANCY!

    And I love Winter...because you can get away with being lazy and because of all the delicious soups that you can fill your tummy with!

  33. I think number three is very subtle and classic. Great designs. It's the middle of Summer here, Australian Summers are often characterised by thunderstorms, heat waves (111F!) and temperamental rain. I am really missing coats, scarves, hats, thick socks and hot drinks! Winter is for me. Wanna swap? :)

  34. I love #3 and Spring is my favorite season, I love seeing everything come back to life.

  35. They're all very beautiful...I love #1 best:)!

  36. #2 since this is one that i don't have!

    Spring for me! See Julie's above - nature coming back to life!

  37. I love all of them, but since I have to choose, I pick 3. My favorite season is definitely Spring!!!

  38. I love #1!

    My favorite season is Fall. I love the cool weather and the beautiful colors.

  39. Love your designs! My favorite would be #1 and my favorite season is fall- the colors, the smell, the sound. I think also of fresh stationery with new school supplies, even though I haven't been in school for years.

    I also love February, my birth month, and today in MN it is bright, sunshiny and 29 degrees with a fresh soft blanket of snow covering everything!

    Thanks for the contest!

    Thanks for the opportunity! My favorite design is #2 and my favorite season is autumn (especially in the eastern US, when the maples are turning red).

  41. fall... hands down! love the briskness in the air and bundling up after a HOT summer! also, i am tied between the first and second design! they are all so cute!

  42. Spring! I like spring clothes the best, the colors, the flowers, spring activities: pools, parks, walks, famers markets, and my birthday is in spring!

    And I like the #3!!

  43. My favorite season is autumn and I think I like #1 the best.

  44. My favorite season is fall and my favorite stationary is #4.

    I found your blog through Jen Howell and realized I went to high school with your husband. Small world

  45. My favourite is 4, and I like the winter :)

  46. Love #3! Classic, but just slightly diferent. The rounded edges are my favorite part.

  47. You know how I love a good giveaway! My favorite is the first. My favorite season is Spring - everyone seems excited and happier and in Memphis you have those 4 days to ride with your windows down before it's 104 degrees.

  48. My favorite season in autumn, which is not very colorful here in Arizona, so I enjoy it in other states when I'm traveling (i.e., Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Illinois). Stationery set #3 is my favorite ~ very classy.

  49. I found your delightful blog through friends of friends...of friends, I think. :) I love winter {for the good reading weather you described in the previous post} and the #4 design.
