Curly Girl Designs: I wouldn't call it idol-worship, exactly. Just adoration.
ight off the bat: I am asking for you to comment. Yes, that thing you do on blogs when you have something to say, to add to the conversation. Nothing like getting to the point.
Whether you're a regular commenter or a reader than browses and never/rarely comments, if EVER you were going to comment, please do so today! You can do it. Click below on the "comment" link, it's really, really straightforward. I will be eternally grateful. Well, I'll be grateful for awhile, anyway.
Now back to regularly scheduled programming...
I first discovered Curly Girl Designs at a wonderful paper shop in San Luis Obispo, while visiting dear friend Corinne a couple of years ago. I dropped more than a little cash at Paper Sky, and it sent me into a little tizzy of dreaming and scheming about opening a little paper shop of my own.
One of the reasons (a big reason) for that tizzy was Curly Girl Designs. I thought, if I love this stuff, and I've never seen it before, I bet all my girlfriends would love it too, and really, just about anyone would love it, and I should be the one to bring it to Walla Walla!
Since then, Curly Girl has been doing just great at getting her word out, and you can find her stuff in all kinds of little shops and boutiques all over the place. I look for her cards and little notebooks (and now there are ornaments and mugs and all kinds of fun things!). I follow her on Facebook, and just this weekend she put out a call for blog posts, with a giveway for the blogger who gets the most comments. Well, I know I don't have a ton of followers/commenters, but I'm stepping out to see who I can get to comment and see how it stacks up...
Here's what Curly Girl said:
GIVE-AWAY!! OK Bloggers.... show me how it's done!! If you blog, do a little post about Curly Girl Design. Leave a note on our wall with your link. The posting with the most (unique) comments by Thursday Aug 5th wins a BRAND SPANKING NEW CGD Magnet board from @demdaco! Bonus: If your followers leave us a note on our wall saying where they saw us it counts as a comment too!! NOW, show me what I have been missing! xoxo
See, Curly Girl is thinking about starting a blog, and she wants to get a sense of how the whole thing works. Lets show her how! You can comment here, and then on Facebook you can comment on Curly Girl's wall as well. Yes, you can, I know you can!
Won't you help a blogger out? I would love one of her magnet boards. And the bonus is, even if I don't win, you could still win. Yes, indeed. If you have a favorite item of Curly Girl's, leave that in your comment too and I will do my very first giveway (how very bloggy of me!) by choosing randomly from the comments.
Take a look at her tremendous talent below. I think this first card is probably my very favorite, of all time.
Yes, this lady has talent. She inspires me every time I look at her work, and I'm thrilled for her continued success.
Thanks so much for your help with this, and remember, there's something (potentially) in it for you too!
