the pleated poppy {giveaway}

The Pleated Poppy is one of my favorite online shops, and I hadn't even bought anything from there (boo, hiss!). The reason I liked it was a shallow one--I love owner Linsey's blog and shop header!
Isn't it gorgeous? Simple and elegant with a lovely color scheme.

So when I was contacted about doing a review, I of course nearly jumped out of my seat. Not only is her graphic design enviable, but her hand-sewn objects are too. I was able to review one of her cute and practical Covered Notebooks.
there's that wonderful design again, in her business cards
I've certainly been burned before when buying handmade products online--the sewing is messy, the color is off--however the notebook cover was better than what I imagined. The sewing is great, the colors are vibrant, and it's pleasing to hold in my hands.
I like that when this notebook is filled, which will hopefully be soon, as I'm trying to do some nightly journaling, that you can just slip another composition book inside. I also hope to take this with me to the BlogHer conference to jot down notes and stuff business cards into. It's nice that there's a pen holder inside the cover.
The Pleated Poppy is really great at pretty-ing up ordinary things like checkbook covers and tea towels, and Lindsey is constantly adding more things to the shop.

The Pleated Poppy is very kindly offering 1 lucky K&K reader
A $25 Gift Certificate!
