Hello World! It’s a giveaway time!

My gift to you!

My gift to you!

May I say finally? I was quite busy past few Months trying to do so many things, working on my web page, working on my first journal line, working on presentation lists, trying to submit on art calls now and then …I admit nothing, and I mean nothing would be done without enormous help of my husband. Yep, he did it again, haha! I hope you will like browsing my page and blog which is now much livelier and more active.

I am trying to write a short sweet post here, so I just want to say, that I am happy that we are already in New Year. It just brings a promise of change to me. Do you feel it too? I don’t do new year solutions but I do word of the year. Mine is FORWARD. A good, strong, old-fashioned word.

Now is your turn. I decided to giveaway one of each four journals. If you want one the rules are simple – share your 2013 word in comment section. Please do I am so curious. All 4 winners will be announced on January 28th (I will contact them privately) and my kids will have an honour to draw of lots.

Simple as that. Once again – welcome in 2013!

    Hello! My word is LEAP… as in “Leap and the net will appear”. I love this quote, this thought, this faith. I want to make this a “leap year”… for my art, and for my life! Petra, your designs are so cheerful, lively, and wonderful. You are definitely “leaping” ahead with your dreams…so inspiring!

  22. Jean January 21, 2013 at 21:30 #

    My word this year is BELIEVE. I need to believe in myself and my talents more. Last year Courage was my word and although I needed courage to pursue some of my goals I found that I first needed to believe in them and in myself. I love your journals Petra!

  23. MaryJane Mitchell January 21, 2013 at 22:03 #

  29. Eva January 22, 2013 at 12:52 #

    I had to think long and hard about it… But I think the word for 2013 will be WORK – because I have a lot of work to do – in finishing my studies, working on myself and my relationships with others. 🙂

  30. MetiBeti January 22, 2013 at 14:05 #

    Petra, I’m proud of you and your work, you rock Cosmo-girl, hihihi 😉 And you managed to do all the creative work with two kids at home!!! I think our common word for 2013 is FAMILY … do you agree? 🙂

    Hi Petra- Your new site is beautiful and the large body of work it contains even more so- it is all amazing and all so you! My word/phrase for the year is “involve to evolve”. The more I can explore and engage in the more likely I am to find what I am meant to do and the artist I am to be.

  33. Beth January 22, 2013 at 17:05 #

    Hi Petra, I am enjoying the new site. This seems to be the week to be posting about the chosen word of the year. I just posted about my word the other day on my site. I chose BELIEVE to be my word of the year for many reasons. I have to Believe that everything I am working for this year is going to come true! That is just one of the few reasons why I chose Believe to be my word. I would love to win on of your gorgeous journals!!! Have a great day 🙂

  34. ksenija January 22, 2013 at 17:07 #

    Beautiful things from beautiful Petra 😉

  35. Sinead Mansell January 22, 2013 at 20:55 #

    Absolutely lovely journals I admired them when you originally listed them in your Etsy shop. My word for 2013 has to be POSITIVITY, because no matter how many set backs I may have I will stay positive. Good luck for 2013 x

    Petra this a lovely idea! Your journals are so beautiful, I love them! My 2013 word is ‘Start’ as this year has started on a high for me both personally and professionally and I hope that if I keep starting new things it will stay this way :). Also, I think that the hardest part is starting but all we need is to give ourselves that little push :)x

    My 2013 word: DO!
    I have so many things I should, must and want to accomplish that all is left for me to do that is actually to DO something. I gotta stop distracting myself and finding excuses. I MUST DO!!!

    BTW… Great new website and I love your journal line! Good luck with everything Petra! 🙂

  48. Jessie January 25, 2013 at 18:36 #

    My 2013 word is: Begin.
    Because I always have so many ideas in my head but struggle for time. But I can’t finish them unless I BEGIN.
