Design*Sponge Book Giveaway

I hope you all had a great weekend - I did. Before I get to the giveaway, one quick little bit of news: on Saturday, my husband and I attended the L.A. Printer's Fair in Carson where I purchased another press for the studio - a 10x15 Chandler & Price! It's a press I had been eyeing for a while, and now I'm the proud owner of another cast-iron monster - isn't that so exciting? Just me? Ok. More on this tomorrow.

Today I really wanted to take the opportunity and thank my family and friends who have been supportive of Cartoules Press, and who have helped me grow my business and network these last couple of years. I also want to thank my readers, Facebook likers, and Tweeps who check in with me for their dose of letterpress updates, design inspiration, and random food for thought. I can't believe we're coming up on the two-year anniversary of this blog in January (what have I been saying all this time?). I love hearing from you, so don't be shy. Drop a line every once and a while, holla.

To thank everyone for your positivity and support, I'm giving away a signed copy of Design*Sponge's new book, Design*Sponge At Home. Grace's blog was one of the first design blogs I started reading a few years back, and now that she put all of her home tours and inspirational tid-bits in a 390-page hardcover design book, I thought it fitting to share this treat with one of my fellow design junkies - that's you! I attended her book signing party in Beverly Hills last Wednesday, where she graciously signed my copy for one of you.
