a guest post and giveaway from katie...

Katie from Green Bean Studio (one of my wonderful sponsors!) offered to write a guest post, and she's even got a fantastic giveaway! So without further ado, here's Katie!

I like blogging, I really do. But there's only so much you can achieve with it because its screen-based, not printed on carefully chosen paper and bound into something beautiful you can hold in your hand. You guessed it, I'm a bibliophile at heart, and so its hardly surprising that in April this year I decided to start publishing a monthly zine that extends all the best things about my blog onto paper.

gb2

The Green Bean has been a roaring success both in terms of my own enjoyment and popularity, to the extent that I'm offering subscriptions at a nice discount from the full price (plus if you subscribe by the end of June you can claim an extra 20% everything else in my etsy shop for a whole year!).

In celebration of sponsoring Wild Olive, I'd love to give away some of my zines to you, Mollie's readers. I've got 3 bundles of issues 1 and 2 to send to loving new homes; if you'd like to win them please leave a comment with some means of contacting you and Mollie/I will draw the winners on Sunday, June 20.

--
Thanks, Katie! And good luck, readers!

UPDATE: Winners have been chosen, and will be announced soon!
