Unleash the Creative Muse Contest!!!!!!!

Hey, y'all! I'm peeping into Blogland today to kick off a cool, artistic, writerly contest I know you'll enjoy!

My Divalicious friend Steph Jordan will judge AND create the BEAUTIFUL AWESOME WRITING JOURNAL for the winner. (And as usual, I might have a few prizes around to give out to some other lucky winners.)


1.) Put your artist's beret on and come up with your best design idea for the cover of a writer's journal. State your theme, colors, and any other blingy ideas that come to mind in a comment.

2.) If your blog ID isn't connected to your signature, please leave an email address or link so I can get in touch with you if you're a winner!

3.) Steph will choose a winner, create the journal using your winning idea, and mail you your one-of-a-kind prize.

4.) ONE entry per person. We're limiting this particular contest to US residents only. (Sorry...postal costs and all that.)

5.) Contest runs through next Wednesday, July 6th (midnight Central time). We'd sure be obliged if you shared the contest with your friends and buddies. :)

Now, don't be shy! There's NO artistic creation Steph can't whip up! If you need some inspiration, cruise her Etsy shop for bright splashes of color HERE or her uplifting blog:  Living in Color.

Wheeeeeeee...hugs to all, and I'll be back on a regular basis VERY soon. Got lots to tell ya, lots going on, lots accomplished, travel stories, etc. etc. etc. to share. It's A-MAZING what you can do if you "unplug" for a few months. XXO

Cool idea!

I love the fleur de lis symbol. I can picture it in the center with a nighttime sky background - stars and moons, and maybe swirls like the aurora borealis.

My favorite colors are violet and periwinkle.

This sounds like fun! I love a soft leather look with a pen and a window so we can stare outside as we create:)

Ladies, wonderful ideas! Good luck with your entries. :)

"Once upon a time" seems a lovely theme for a writer's journal. I bet Steph can imagine an amazing array of symbols representing the time we spend recording our creative thoughts.

What a fun contest! ~m

I need one. I've temporarily abandoned my blog ( ) because of technical glitches, but I'll straighten that out when this leg of the journey is done (SF, CA). Title? "52 ACROSS". Concept? Middle aged guy rides solo on a bicycle from coast to coast. Graphics? Anything bicycle, long road, organic, fluid, wind swept, flowing. The trip has evolved to continue to Seattle, winter over in the Cascades, across to Minn in Spring, down to BTR, LA, over to St Augustine and back up to Yorktown, VA (starting point). 12,000 miles, 12 months riding.

If this is worthy of a journal, send it to me via:
Dr. Claude Arnett, MD
1400 Markham Way
Sacramento, CA. 95816
