Giveaway & Aloha From a Sponsor: Dodeline Design

Today's sponsor feature is a very special one. Sarah, of Dodeline Design, was one of my very first friends in the Etsy community (we ''met'' on the Etsy forums!) and she was one of my first customers too! 



She runs a stationary shop with adorable cards, invitations and save-the-dates. Today, I am honored and excited to help launch a brand-new product of hers-- beautiful handmade notebooks! 
These notebooks are handmade of basswood, canvas and recycled soft white paper. You can buy them as a set of three or as singles. Sarah is introducing three equally stunning lines, each with beautiful designs-- Cirque, Voyage, and Destination.

But wait! There's more! The really cool part is that they are individually numbered and stamped on the inside.  Each notebook comes with a login to handmadenotebooks.com , where you can go in and post pictures of your drawing/writing in the notebook, places you've taken it, testimonial/feedback on the product, OR if you just want to introduce yourself and plug your business/blog/whatever.  Everyone who posts on the handmade notebooks blog gets a "lifetime" discount of 10% on future notebook purchases, plus they get to promote themselves too! Awesome, huh?







Aren't they darling?? Wanna win one? Sarah is generously offering a mini (3x4) notebook to an Aisle to Aloha reader! 

To enter, you must be a follower of AisletoAloha using the Google Friend Connect feature (Click the "follow" button on the right side bar.) Leave a comment on this post telling us about the last handwritten note or letter you wrote. A letter to your grandma? A card for the Birthday Club? A note to your penpal?


**Additional entries**

2. If you tweet about the giveaway, leave a second entry. (Make sure you mention @aisletoaloha and @dodelinedesign in your tweet!)

3. If you follow Sarah's blog, leave a third entry. 

**Please make sure I can find your email somewhere (on your blog, etc) or your entry is invalid! **

So, you have the potential to enter three times. 

The giveaway will be open until 10pm (Hawaii time) next Thursday, February 10th. I'll choose the winner using random.org and announce it on Friday, February 11th.
