Happy 2nd Blogoversary!

I can't believe it's that time of year again. I will be giving away two lovely, laminated bookmarks, one for each year I've been blogging. We'll have a special prize draw to celebrate! How about we make it that you give me your favorite quote and the book/author it came from? The best two will win a bookmark each! Here are the two delicious bookmarks available. I chose two divergent styles to cover both the whimsical people and the detail oriented folks. (Click to Enlarge and see detail.)

Title: "Magic Carpet Ride"

Title: "Beetlejuice"

In your entry, please tell me which one you would prefer. I'll try to make that happen. (Jenn crosses fingers that the two best quotes don't want the same bookmark...) All entries must be received before midnight January 11. I'll choose the winners and announce them here on January 12. Good luck! Just click on "Comments" at the end of this post and leave your comment to enter into my draw. What you'll need to tell me is:
  1. Your name.
  2. Your quote.
  3. The book and/or author it came from.
  4. Your email address so I can contact you if you win.
  5. Which bookmark you'd prefer.
  6. Please also make sure you're following my blog and/or my Etsy Shop!
I look forward to all your quotes. I love quotes and actually collect them! My favorite is:
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea."      (Robert A. Heinlein from Time Enough For Love)
I'll be back soon with some new art. It's being a great year, so far! Hehehe. Yea for 2012!

    "When you sense a faint potentiality for happiness after such dark times you must grab onto the ankles of that happiness and not let go until it drags you face-first out of the dirt--this is not selfishness, but obligation. You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight" -Liz Gilbert from 'Eat Pray Love'
    I LOVE the Beetlejuice bookmark. Thanks for the drawing! Have a fantastic weekend!

    "The physical domain of the country had its counterpart in me.
    The trails I made led outward into the hills and swamps, but they led inward also.
    And from the study of things underfoot . . . came a kind of exploration, myself and the land.
    In time the two became one in my mind." – John Haines

    Happy New Year and
    Happy PPF!!

  7. Hi Jen,

    Love your blog and I think your work is beautiful! I followed you here from the Blogaholic site and I'm happy I did.

    My quote is not from a book, but it's one of my favs "...This is your life, don't play hard to get..." Freddy Mercury, "Play the Game." I collect quotes, as well, because I find them inspiring and encouraging.

    You can reach me on Blogaholic and I would be happy to win either of your bookmarks. Thanks, Jen and all the best to you!

  8. Hi Jenn,

    One of my favourite quotatons is from Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas ...

    "To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobblestreets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea."

    I'd be pleased to receive either bookmark!

  12. Thanks so much for sharing the love and including Inspire Me Monday on your sidebar! Both of your bookmarks are awesome - I love the symmetry of Beetlejuice and the colors and possibilities of Magic Carpet Ride - so, if you pick me, I shall leave the choice in your hands!

    Here is my quote - which, I discovered today through Inspire Me Monday. It's from The Secret Garden by Francess Hodgson Burnett:

    Two things cannot be in one place. Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow.

    I'm following your fabulous blog!

  15. Hello, Jenn!
    I'm Cheree.
    Well, I thought I was already a follower but, I guess now I am your very newest follower! Also following your etsy shop.
    I love the Beetlejuice bookmark, though the other is almost as great.
    Oh gosh, I love quotes! I used to keep a book of them but then I was writing down so much it was interrupting my reading! LOL Here's a short one that pops into my head, tho: "The occasion for the struggle is the occasion for the victory." Fr. Jean d'Elbee "I Believe In Love"
    Thanks for the give-away!
