Moleskine giveaway.

You have all heard about my love for Moleskines and apparently the word spread!
...some weeks ago I was contacted by the web department of cronicle books and they asked me if I would like to host a Moleskine giveaway on my blog!

Of course I said yes!
Last week I got a package, all the way from San Francisco, filled with lovley moleskines. Can you belive it?
So now you got the chance to lay your hands on either a "desk calendar 2010" or an amazing "colour a month daily planner in 12 notebooks". I´ve got two of each so there will be 4 winners.
I will spice it up by also adding one of my newly arrived cuttingboards/potholders (to keep hot pans on) in each package, the winners can choose the pattern they prefer from the 9 different ones I got.
------------
So, all you have to do to get a shot at winning is to leave a comment on this post, I would love it if you told me what you like to read about here, what would make you come back/makes you come back?
If you also link to this post on your own blog you will get another shot at winning.
So, a total of 2 chances to win! The lottery is open for anyone from any part of the world!

I will draw 4 winners next sunday (the 6:th) at midnight. First 2 gets the desk calendar+potholder, last 2 gets the daily planners+potholder. The winners will be choosed randomly by a random number service and announced here on next monday, the 7:th of december.

Spread the word, and good luck:)
--------
Now, go and check out chroniclebooks.com, (webshop is only open within the U.S)
It´s also possible to follow Cronichal Books on twitter

HELLO TIGER! said...

Åh, fina saker må jag säga! En sådan där skärbräda skulle en ju inte gråta av att få ^.^

Jag älskar att se vad du gör, de mönster du skapar och diy-projekt. Jag vill alltid ha massor av bilder!

deleilan said...

Moleskines are such a wonderful indulgence — I'd love to win!
One of the things I enjoy about your blog is that you show us little moments of your day. Call me a voyeur, but that's very interesting to me! I also like the tutorials you posted recently.
(I've just mentioned your giveaway on my blog!)

Sara said...

I live in the US but would love to enter your giveaway.

Thank you for the chance :)

I'm adding your blog to my google reader... loving it!

mamma said...

Åh Cissi, jag vill oxå ha.
De ser så fina ut och skärbrädorna är ju fina, de har jag ju sett å även beställt.
Önska mig lycka till :-)

anni said...

i would love to win, you can never have too many notebooks :) x
p.s. have spread the word on my blog

Fruenswerk said...

I love Moleskin...cool...and Just keep on drawing those great patterns...then I´ll be by your side ;)))))
And of course I´ll link to your blog also...:)))))

amelish said...

The planner set is a great idea :)

I just started reading your blog last week (hooked!), it took me a few minutes to figure out that the "potholders" are a base for flowerpots to sit on, not an object that morphs into fabric for holding pans. Oops.

Anyway, they look great!

Annie said...

Woah! I'd love to win a moleskine!

HB said...

I'm new here - but picked up a link from twitter and like what I'm seeing. Particularly excited about drawing stuff you post. Will pass the word on .... of course. My more regularly updated drawing stuff: http://twitter.com/drawdrawdraw . Expect multiple links :-)

Mel said...

I just can't get over the quality of beautiful images you post! The drawings are just incredible and provide lots of inspiration for my own work :)

Ebba Erikzon said...

Hej! Jag skulle gärna äga en av dina fina skärbrädor/underlägg i monokromt svartvitt, och en Moleskine skulle va fint, jag använder jämt skissböcker. jag gillar din blog för du lyckas blanda det personliga med fin design och foton med mycket självdistans och humor.

melanie said...

nice artwork, good photos and sweet twins (i have some too).

●• Thereza said...

YESSSS!! how wonderful, of course, count me in!

Linda said...

Cecilia! I love how you took the passion you felt for Moleskine products & put it into action with your blog. It's a sweet site! I adore Moleskines, too! I've made 44 culinary or gastronomic journals from the plain brown notebooks, some with the quadrille, others with just the creamy ivory blank pages! Moleskine has provided me with an outlet for my inner chef! Tack så mycket! From a Swedish-American girl (ancestors emigrated from Skåne around 1900!) Linda (Twitter name: aurorakangaspuu! :D

marie said...

Maria Sahlberg said...

Hej Cecilia!
Long time no see! Vi gick ihop ett tag på gamla kf om du minns. Iaf ska jag snart (början av nästa år) lansera mig som tecknare/illustratör med egen hemsida. Till den vill jag länka andra kreativa människors sidor, bloggar mm. Är du intresserad av att va med? Meddela på min fb-sida. Som du förstår behöver man en kalender om man ska driva företag;)
Maria Sahlberg

EJ said...

All the blogs I like seem to be by people in Goteborg, a place I visited just once, long ago.
I like your photos and your words, too.
Also moleskins and Moomins.
Ev

Alexandra Hedberg said...

ja, jag vinner ju aldrig ... men vi kan ju försöka ändå! Och självklart länkar jag till dig (ikväll) ... hade gjotr det utan att få en "extra lott"!

Jag gillar bäst att läsa om
- hur du går till väga med mönster etc
- hur du kämpar på med karriären (spira) och tänker där.
- bilder av den kreativa processen/din design

nathalie et cetera said...

I come to your blog because of your work. I really like your patterns and how you work with them. And I really liked your posts about your messy home :) i always enjoy honesty in blogs.

Ange said...

Now I just found your blog through an Australian blog through Art Every Day Month. I see we share a love of moleskines. Now - I am going to spend my evening by the fire discovering you. I am an artist in France specialising in inspirational words on wood. One day French, one day English... Take care and you'll be hearing from me. Ange

Alexandra Hedberg said...

nu har jag länkat!

Anna said...

Jag tycker om framförallt att se dina fina mönster och hur dom växer fram. Skulle gärna vinna ett av dina underlägg! Undrar även var du säljer dom annars? Har du någon webshop?

Karin Strömberg said...

Sluta blogga och maila dina mönster till mig;-)
Vill gärna vinna oxå
Kram kram

Vicki Holdwick said...

I found you through Alexandra Hedberg and I am liking what I see.

You have a lovely blog.

Thanks for the chance to be a winner.

I am having a giveaway on my blog, too. C'mon over.

marie-louise said...

kristina said...

jag tycker så mycket om att se dina mönster växa fram, och att du tar dig tid att berätta hur du arbetar. tycker också om dina foton!

Brit said...

Wooow the 'color a month' daily planner is so pretty! I love moleskines as well!! What a great giveaway! I hope I win!! :) Or else I just might have to buy it myself!

Anairam said...

Oh my goodness, I would LOVE to win a moleskine, but I would love even MORE to win one of your beautiful patterned potholders! What I like most about your blog is seeing how your patterns develop - they have inspired some of my doodling! - and also to get some insight into family life in Sweden ...

rino said...

jag besöker din blogg bara för att se dina vackra mönster.
Så därför är det bonusvinsten som lockar mig mest:-)

hur går det med lottningen Cissie, jag skulle bli så glad för en liten vinst så här i juletider!
kram Katarina

uhlala said...

inspiration inspiration!
creative and positive people make my life better :))

Elodie said...

I love reading on people's everyday life and that's what you do! And you do it so well!

I really like Moleskine as well. Today it rained like crazy here and my planner was soaking wet when I came back from uni... It makes me sad :( I got the school year one because the last I had was not paperback and I didn't like it, so I got the hard one. Now I have to 1) live with it 2) buy a new one in January 3) Cry. I think I'll cry, and probably get a new planner! All my notes, lists and stuff can't be read anymore...

johanna said...

Jag gillar mixen av vardag och och dina fina arbeten. Finns alltid något skönt för ögat att titta på.

Nina Lindgren said...

Himla fina priser måste jag säga!
Jag har följt dig i ett år och ett par månader nu och jag kommer uppenbarligen tillbaka gång på gång. Det är intressant att se hur andra arbetar! Och så älskar jag mönster och du har verkligen utvecklats fantastiskt mycket. Lycka till i framtiden!

Lotten said...

Åhh vilka fina vinster! Självklart vill jag vara med ;-)

ida said...

Jag har precis hittat hit så jag kan inte uttala mig om vad jag vill ha mer om ännu, men jag vill passa på att säga att jag ÄLSKAR dina mönster - så vackra! Skärbrädorna är fantastiskt fina. Och själv älskar jag Colour A Month-kalendern och hoppas jag vinner!

katzenjammy said...

The color-a-month Molys are beautiful, and a good size - I found last year's page-a-day book a little intimidating!

Vee said...

I absolutely love viewing your drawings and artwork! Your potholder/cutting boards look amazing!

Thanks for the moleskine opportunity!

chrrristine said...

hi, this is actually my first visit, I found you via Sandra Juto.
I love your drawings, and the fact that you write about how you work, it makes your blog a great resource for inspriration, and I'm sure I'll come back to read much more of it in the future. I love the moleskines, but I'd much rather win one of your cutting boards, they are so beautiful!
all the best from brooklyn,
Christine

annapernilla said...

Erin C. said...

I check your blog to see your latest artwork that you have posted. I like your emphasis on design and craft. Tutorials are always good. Thank you for sponsoring this giveaway.

Leenie said...

Oh, heck. There are 63 comments before me. So my chances of winning are pretty much zero. I just learned about Moneskines. I bought a small sketch book and it is so lovely I may never write on its pristine pages. Pick me!

pixie said...

What a lovely giveaway! I'm here visiting from artsyville and what stands out so far are you beautiful designs and colors.
Congratulations!

jenn said...

oh, how i love moleskins....

la ninja said...

why, of course, one can never say no to a moleskine. I was already planning on getting my new diary for 2010, but I may just cross my fingers and wait a few days just in case the monthly planner happened to have my name written on it. just in case :)

I came here via aimee and I'm glad I did. those cutting boards!!!!! fab doesn't even start describing them.

Ellen Joy Castel said...

Hi, I'm from the Philippines and I stumbled upon your blog as part of my hunt for Moleskine planners :) I really really want one for my BIG YEAR next year(my eldest is turning 1 and I'll have twins by feb)

I've browsed almost all of your recent posts and what I liked most was the fact that your site is a photo blog. You don't just tell us about your experiences, you let us see what's happening... and on top of that, I love the pictures of your drawings and your kids. Are they twins too? :)

Will be posting this on my blog for another shot..

Ellen Joy Castel said...

I'm back :) Here's my blog entry 'bout your giveaway: http://ejcayaba.blogspot.com/2009/12/get-moleskine-from-sweden.html Wish I'll win.

Kasia said...

I’d love to win both Moleskine and your cutting board – your patterns are fascinating :)

POP LIFE said...

what a nice giveaway ad what beautiful boards! would be so nice to be one of the winners!
anyway: participating and give our own feedback is a good thing also :-)

ciao from italy and best compliments

karro said...

...nu har jag försökt komma på nåt kul,smart,kort och vettigt att skriva i snart en vecka (för jag vill så sjukt gärna vinna one of your cuttingboards/pothholders!!),men jag ÄR så fantastiskt kass på att formulera mig just kul,smart,kort och vettigt,men here i go i alla fall: din blogg hör till en av mina absoluta favoriter och ger mig så sjukt mycket inspiration i typ allt du gör och varje gång du postat ett nytt inlägg känns det alltid lite som julafton!tack för en grym sida!

Hello,
I found you on Artyville and I am visiting for the first time. I haven't read very much on your blog, but I did notice the mushrooms, which I love. I would love to be included in the Moleskin giveaway, so please add my name to the hat.

Thank you

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot to come back and comment - I hope I'm not too late!
I love my Moleskins, and so would love to be lucky enough to win! However to win one of your beautiful pot-holders would be really special :)))

You have a beautiful blog - your art is amazing!
But I also keep returning to see the glimpses of you and your family life. We are similar in age and both have a young family, and it's inspiring to see how you fit your work around this :)

(Will still link you even though I've left it a bit late!!)

dahlhaus said...

I like to read about you and your family- I can relate as an artist-mom myself. It's great to see someone else coping with the business of family life while making art too!
Great give-a-way! thanks Heather

Maria said...

Jag drömmer om att börja föra dagbok i en sådan där moleskin. En dagbok med bild och text. SÅ jag vill gärna hinna få en chans i din utlottning trots att jag upptäcker den såhär i sista minuten.

patti said...

please please pleasseee! so cute :) the pot holders.

Jocelyn said...

This just barely makes the deadline, I think :) I hope, assuming I calculated the time zones right! Well, I'd like to enter to win, and I just discovered and really like your blog :) Oh! And I posted your giveaway on my blog: http://writersxblock.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/giveaways/.

Åhhh, så mycket snyggt!!!!
Jag snubblade in här när jag sökte annat på nätet och är jätteglad för det... Synd bara att jag inte hann vara med om tävlingen om de de fina böckerna.
