giveaway: justjenn designs.



Oh, I love a good giveaway! I met Jenn from JustJenn Designs at Grace's BizLadies Meet-Up in LA a few weeks ago, and she had the foresight to bring along a few of her uber-cute stationery samples. I was instantly swept into a paper goods frenzy and quickly apologized for each spot of drool that now lay on her immaculate portfolio.



I think she accepted my apology, because she contacted me last week and offered a FANTASTIC giveaway to one lucky Design for Mankind winner! Here's what we've got:

(1) pack of Curse-Ive Flat Cards [these are my FAVORITE!]: $8 retail value.
(1) pack of Cupcake Crumbs Cards: $8 retail value. [Jill: You'd LOVE these!]
(1) pack of PERSONALIZED Modern Gift Set: $12 retail value.

So. In the spirit of Roadmaps (Jenn's still working to get her business off the ground!), here's how you can win this super-fun set:

Simply comment below with the name/contact info of at least ONE SHOP [either online or LA-based] where you think Jenn's paper goods would fit in well. That's it! We'll handle the rest... ;)

Thanks so much to Jenn, and to you readers for giving her some totally valuable advice! I'll announce the winner, which will be chosen at random, in 48 HOURS.

I think she should hook up with the modern letter project, not a store but a group of people that write letters to a given address on a monthly basis.

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
