500,000 Visit Mini Giveaway-now closed

This giveaway has ended.

Even though I already have a giveaway going (enter here or here to win a copy of Sandy Steen Bartholomew's 'Tangled Fashionista' & a tin of 12 Derwent Coloursoft pencils, if you haven't already), I had to do something to celebrate passing 500,000 views on this blog.

To top it off I won a Dayplanner from Paperblanks (see their great article about why you should keep a dayplanner), and I felt I just had share some of my good luck.

So, I'm having a mini-giveaway! Now closed
What? I'm giving away a set of 6 Micron Pigma  pens.
When?  The giveaway starts now-04:00 PM PDT and ended at Midnight PDT on Sunday. Winner will be announced on Monday.
