Giveaway with Crown Bindery!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!!

Over the summer I went to the Renegade Craft Fair in Austin.  Had tons of fun strolling around, spending too much money, and admiring the talent of others.  I met a few gals who I thought had some pretty genius creations.  One of them was Carla from Crown Bindery.  She sells these amazing laminated binders in all sorts of fun, fun colors.  After finally deciding which delicious binder I wanted, and going home and getting FABULOUS use out of it, I contacted her about doing a giveaway on my blog.  She was so generous... she sent me not only a 9x11 binder, in the most scrumptious fall colors and patterns, but a pocket folder and fun bookmark and pencil as well!  **For one of you lucky readers!  Yeah!

Here's just a few pics I snagged off her etsy site so you can see how fun organization can be when you buy one of these babies for yourself!






It really will make you want to be more orderly.  Promise. Especially with all there is to choose from: three ring binders, notebooks, journals, notecard binders, bagtags, and bookmarks created using beautiful papers, heavy duty laminate pouches and book rings. Crown Bindery also has accessories for your notebooks... cardstock pockets, dividers and printables.

And that's not her only shop.  Check out The Crown Paperie , where she sells papered clothespins, clothesline kits (clothespins plus hanging wire, hookeyes), clamp hangers, children's hangers and clipboards which provide colorful options for organizing paperwork in the handmade home office.


There's also The Paper Crown as well: paper chain DIY kits, paper packaging pockets and paper stacks created from the cutting room floor of the back workroom at CrownBindery.etsy.com.


Love that she uses every scrap of paper she can.  So very green and resourceful. Says Carla, "Paper scraps from Crown Bindery (my primary Etsy venue) head in two directions...  Smaller pieces end up at Crown Paperie as paper chains and paper pockets.  Larger paper pieces mix with decoupage medium and end up at The Papered Crown."

Oh, and if that weren't enough... Carla also has a blog!  It's called Homemade Office  and she highlights all sorts of fun stuff there.  You all should follow!  Ok, lest I sound like I've developped a girl crush...


To be eligible for this giveaway, you can:

1.) become a new follower of My Many Colored Days
2.) visit one of Carla's shops and leave a comment telling me what your favorite product is...
3.) blog about this giveaway

AND/OR

4.) *heart* Carla's fun shop(s)! (That's a given, right? I mean... how could you not?)

{Leave a comment for each thing you do, for a possibility of 4 entries per person.}

The winner will receive the previously mentioned 9x11 binder, pocket folder, bookmark and pencil. :)

**This giveaway will close Tuesday, Nov. 23 at midnight EST.  Winner will be announced Wednesday, Nov. 24.  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.**
