Yesterday's winner was ikkinlala, check her out on the lovely sock knitting blog called Southern Summer of Socks!
My favorite color to use out of that package of pens is Yellow. Phew, I though no one was going to get the correct answer. Y'all really wanted it to be red or pink! Yellow is not a favorite color of mine generally, but that particular yellow is very nice.
Enjoy the pens and mini cashier ikkinlala!
For Thursday's giveaway I am offering up a new 6 x 9 Mead Sketch Diary and 10 Paper Mate Felt tip Pens.
To win this lot of goodies I want you to do a little more detective work. What (musical) artist have I listened to most (352 times) on Let me give you a hint where you can find an easy link to this answer, Digital Joy.

Yesterday's winner was Willie Baronet! Congrats Willie, I hope you enjoy the Sharpies. Thank you for the wonderful work you create and for your participation here on the BGD blog.
For Tuesday's giveaway I have put together some of my favorite black pens to give one lucky commenter. The Uni-Ball Vision Exact pen is my absolute favorite black pen to use. That's why they got top billing in the above image. I am also throwing in a Mini Moleskine Cashier.

To win these lovely items I am asking you do a little detective work, tell me what the first concert I attended in 2007 was. You'll have to look at One Really Killer Line to figure this out. (Check out the music related giveaways going on over there while you are looking!)
Everyone who gets the answer right, gets their name in a hat and tomorrow morning I will draw a winner!
