Etsy Extravaganza GIVEAWAY {Day 8}

Etsy Extravaganza 10-Day GIVEAWAY {Day 8}
$20 Gift Certificate
to Gadanke!

Meet Katie: Howdy! I'm Katie. I’m an American splitting life between a 480 square foot apartment in Berlin, Germany and – get this – a house made of old tires in the Rocky Mountains. I believe an incredible thing happens when we pause to celebrate our stories. It gives us meaning. The ordinary starts to feel downright awesome. That’s why I help people capture memories and express themselves by writing their stories in my line of eco-friendly writing prompt journals. This award-winning business, Gadanke, is my dream come true.
Her Story: A couple of years ago, NPR's StoryCorp was in town. It was also my grandma's 90th birthday. The two of us decided to hop into the recording studio to capture some pieces of her story. I had all sorts of prompts to help her with her story telling. (I was always the listener, the one who asked question after question.) The only problem? My grandma couldn't remember. Too much time had passed. Later, my dad turned to me and said, "Katie, I need you to write down your story." I knew he wished he had his mom's stories. So I started writing. I started wondering about all of the other women who have stories deep inside of them. Gadanke was born with fabulous writing prompts and recycled papers.

What's Inside Her Shop: Celebrate your story! Document who you are and what you crave and believe. Handmade journaling products at Gadanke are filled with creative writing prompts and tidbits to make you think (and laugh!). These baby books, prayer journals, travel books, and diaries make your writing process more meaningful and fun! Plus they're totally eco-savvy with 100% recycled papers.

Prize Details: A $20 gift certificate to purchase Katie's products through her on-line shop.
