Please note: This giveaway was originally posted on C. Beth Blog. I found out that, due to BlogHer Ads regulations, I needed to move it to my Giveaway blog. Please be assured, if you already entered at C. Beth Blog, I have printed your entry and it still counts! Please don't enter again. Thanks!
I'm lucky I don't have carpal tunnel syndrome, with all the time I spend on the computer. But even I still like the feel of a smooth pen in my fingers, and the softness of beautiful paper. When I write poetry, I like to write it longhand so I can scratch out words, phrases, or lines without deleting them for all time.
Thankfully, even though so many of us journal on computer in the form of blogs, traditional paper journals are still available, and Brush Dance carries some beautiful choices. They also have calendars, greeting cards, magnets, posters, stationery, and more. Brush Dance is an advertiser on this blog (see right sidebar), and they offer a 20% discount to C. Beth Blog readers! Just use the code "CBETH".
This is one of my favorite items. It's a 120-page journal. It says, "The earth laughs in flowers." Aren't the artwork and sentiment lovely?
I also particularly like the Bible Inspirations Flex Journal, Shadow and Light Magnet Close Journal (beautiful quote on this one), and the Whirls and Swirls Stationery Folio.
There are also some fantastic clearance deals on the site right now! The Shadow and Light Boxed Notes are beautiful--and only $5.18! There are some gorgeous, artistic holiday cards for half price, and you can get 2010 dated items for half price too (and still use them for over 90% of the year!) More clearance items are here.
Brush Dance is giving a $25 gift card to one lucky reader of C. Beth Blog! Here are the details:

3. Winner will be chosen randomly on Monday, January 18. I will close comments before choosing the winner. I will announce the winner here.
