and another quickie giveaway...

Hello! I am now looking for a good home for one of my handmade address files.

This file is in almost-perfect condition. It is made of ecologically harvested solid maple wood, and finished with a nice non-toxic satin finish. The only thing 'wrong' with this file is that it has a few minor rough patches on the file. I actually don't mind them, but others may not so much and so it is not for sale.

Each of my address files is of my own original design, and are designed to be both timeless and very functional. They are filled up with 200 address cards, each of them cut and punched personally by me! (I can now cut these cards with my eyes closed) Many of the cards are patterned with my own designs and printed on recycled paper, some are solid-coloured cards, and some cards are cut from re-cycled cardstock such as vintage library book cards. Each file is numbered, personalised to the recipient, and made with a whole ton of time, care and love!

If you would like to have one this special address file to call your own (or give to a friend) please leave a comment and I will attempt to randomly pick a winner tomorrow evening (Wednesday, September 21st, pacific time) This contest is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Good Luck!

***This contest has now ended - comments are closed. Thank you to everyone who entered!***
