Love Notes Keepsake Giveaway

Another Giveaway! Yes, I've decided to celebrate the release of The Secret Admirer Romance Collection for a whole month instead of just a day because I have another prize pack to give away.

For this giveaway, I asked my daughter, Vancouver creative artist Crystal Anne Draper, to design something unique to contain the Love Notes that my heroine, Janet, hides among the items in hero Adam's Emporium in my novella, Love in Store.

Since I already had a public Pinterest board for Love in Store, I created a secret one for the Love Notes Keepsake and invited Crystal to be a member. On our secret board, I pinned the lilac graphic that I had used to create the Love in Store postcard and bookmark, which I also pinned on the board. Plus, all my promotional graphics and memes. Finally, I pinned images that I'd found on other pinterest boards to give her ideas of what I had in mind for the Love Notes Keepsake.

I left the crafting and materials to Crystal and then waited to see what she came up with. I was quite delighted to learn she was crafting it with leather and using vellum for the lilac image pages. The Love Notes Keepsake is on its way from Vancouver, but Crystal sent photos of what she made.

When you untie the ribbon and open it, you find the Love in Store Love Notes inside:

  1. How clever and how CUTE! You always have the best ideas.

    Congratulations on the new book. I love those novella collections.

    And your daughter is lovely. :)

    1. Thanks, DeAnna. I'm actually enjoying the creative aspect of book marketing. And I love novella collections, too!

      Awh, thanks for your kind words about Crystal. She's an awesome person. :)

  2. Yay! Anita Mae! This is fantastic. So glad the release has finally come around. This is a lovely collection (and yours is the loveliest story of the bunch).

    1. Thanks, Lisa. I appreciate you for saying that.

  3. I don't think I would be able to give that away. It's just beautiful. What a great little gift set and so full of meaning!

    1. Deb, I'll probably feel the same when I receive it in the mail and hold it in my hands, but I've wanted to work with Crystal on a giveaway for awhile, and the Love Note theme was the perfect vehicle for it.

  4. Congratulations on your new release, and oh my, I love Crystal's creation! Just beautiful!

    She's quite lovely, too!

    1. Thanks, Susie, on both counts. :)

    2. And speaking of counting...I think that should be thank you on all 3 counts. :)
