Yep, today officially starts Banned Books Week.
I'm pre-posting this blog post right before skipping town for a work event, so I'll be keeping it short and announcing my giveaway on this post and then sometime mid-week (after I'm home again) I'll show my own BBW project which will be hanging in my local public library during Banned Books Week.
Anyone who completes a challenge fabric project for Banned Books Week and posts their picture of it in the BBW Flickr group at this link will be eligible to win in either Tanesha or my giveaways. We'll each be drawing from the same pool of entrants so yes, indeed, it is possible to win twice!
I will be giving away (drum roll please...)
Two gift certificates at $15 each for Powells.com.
(That's two winners, each getting $15 a piece.)
The gift certificates will be emailed to you and you can use them at the Powell's website.
What's Powell's? Only one of the world's best bookstores!
The brick n' mortar is in Portland, Oregon. I had the opportunity to visit there years ago while in Portland for work. It's a pretty amazing place.
The website, although not quite as great as being able to walk through shelves of books smelling like...well...books (best smell in the world!), is pretty dang cool too.
And it just seemed fitting to encourage people to buy more books to celebrate Banned Books Week.
So post your photos to Flickr, and if you talk about your project on your blog, leave the link to your blog post in the description of the photo in Flickr. (Be sure to label your photos for 2014 since we're using the same group as last year.)
The drawing will close on Sunday, September 28.
Can't wait to see what you've come up with!
