Red-y for the Weekend Giveaway

Red goodies

The fourth of color-themed sample giveaways in honor of the third anniversary of The Well-Appointed Desk and we are still going strong! This grouping includes a Handbook square sketchbook, a mini Moleskine notebook, and an assortment of pens. Some items may have been used for writing tests and review but are practically new with one or two pages marked in the back for testing purposes. More items may be added later.

To enter, just leave a comment and tell me about your weekend plans. Traveling? Catching up on letter-writing? Hanging with your family?

FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Friday, June 21, 2013. All entries must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Friday. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone β€” pinky swear. Shipping via USPS first class is covered. Additional shipping options or insurance will have to be paid by the winner. We are generous but we’re not made of money.

(Shoutout to JetPens and all the other nice folks who’ve given me samples to review over the years)

  1. This weekend I am going to be in dress rehearsal for my community college’s performance of Les Miserables!!! So I’m going to be one busy woman!! then afterwards relaxing after a long day!

  2. I’ve been away from home this whole week. My plans for the weekend are to travel home, unpack and get back to my regular routine!

  3. This weekend we’re probably heading out to local farms to get fresh veggies and greens. That’s if it doesn’t get too hot — if that happens, we’re hiding away in the air conditioning and catching up on sleep πŸ˜€

  4. I’m house sitting for an elderly woman that’s friends with my grandmother, except she’ll be at the house too. I guess she just gets lonely sometimes and needs some company. But apparently she’s a baller, shot caller ’cause we’re going to see “The Bling Ring” and thrift shopping around town – score!

  5. My weekend plans include an ongoing project of remodeling the basement. It’s a big task…little by little…it’s start to look good!

  6. I will be getting my crap together this weekend, and doing a major grocery shop. By major, I mean Major. Its an eight hour event, four stores, and many many trips up the stairs.

  7. Doing a 20-mile bike ride through my city at 11pm on Saturday. It’s a fun event that has become a tradition with friends.

  8. I’m travelling to visit family a few hours away. I actually have a long weekend and my partner is out Friday so I’ll have the day to myself – think I’ll take a walk and sit in the park πŸ™‚

  9. Slightly red-related: it is the 2000th anniversary of the founding of the nearby city of St Albans, and today is the memorial of this first English martyr (see: red, as blood) to the Christian faith. Cue a weekend-long festival of much celebration, processions, and general merriment. My family and I will all be there.

  10. Cleaning my kitchen (fun! ha), going to my partner’s show at some bar, possibly hanging out with some friends, and going to see Monsters University.

  11. This weekend I hope to catch up on sleep, see a movie, and do some work grading papers for an online university class I teach.

  12. Hanging with family for our community yard sale. Should be nice and balmy here in July Florida. May even hang a sign that says pens for sale. Just not sure if we’re going to pay off the house with our proceeds from the sale or just dump all in new pens.

  13. I hope to go to the farmer’s market and something called “junkstock”. That is between the rain, humidity and high temps.

  14. I’ll be spending Saturday on a 12-hour wander, the third this year from the Wanderers Union. And Sundays are my letter-writing days–a cold beer and lots of paper out on the deck!

  15. This weekend, I hope to take a walk to my favorite hand-pulled noodles and dumplings joint with my sweetheart. Thanks so much for the giveaways and congrats on three years of great blogging.

  16. Visiting Mom and Dad, and cleaning out my filing cabinet…hurray for the former…ick for the latter. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy 3rd.

  17. I’ll be polishing my almost-done essay for Saturday, and taking off to join a competition with my mother in Sunday! πŸ˜€ Not quite optimistic to win (both the competition and this giveaway) but do wish me good luck. πŸ˜›

  18. I will be celebrating my mom’s b-day. We are going to see “Wicked” and maybe some car shopping. Busy busy weekend for me.

  19. I am going to take my four-year-old to his t-ball game and then probably the new Monsters Inc movie. Will be interesting to see if he can sit through an entire movie.

  20. wow.. this is so fun.. I love the red themed giveaway…
    this weekend here in Singapore we are encouraged to stay indoors due to this terrible smog which has hit us.. so it will be reading and crafting for me.. emmmm.. no outdoors plan.. πŸ™
    but.. if i win this.. it will surely bring some smiles.. πŸ˜€

  21. Now that reminded me that I do indeed need to catch up on some letter writing! But also I ought to get outside, so perhaps a picnic in the forest or by the sea and maybe after that I’ll do some scrapbooking-type-thing.

  22. I will be swimming the first open water swim race of the summer on Saturday. It takes place on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii. It is also my weekend to work!

  23. This weekend I’ll be going to a picnic for my grandfather’s birthday, baking a cake for my nephew’s birthday, and buying a fountain pen for my niece’s graduation present. Somewhere in there, I’ll be thinking of red pens…

  24. I’ll be spending part of the weekend at a graduation party for an in-law I barely know…other than that, I hope to be spending time on my porch with beverages and friends.

  25. This weekend I am going to a quilt festival and a fiber festival. I plan on getting inspired by all the fabrics, colors, yarns and llamas I am going to see!

  26. This weekend, I’m getting out to run errands; I work from home, so I usually have a huge list that I’ve put off all week long while I’m working. So, I’ll get dressed and get busy!

  27. Craft day with my daughter! We are working on Christmas Shadow Boxes. We get together one Saturday each month to do artsy-crafty stuff and it is always so much fun!

  29. I’m planning to finish a Lovecraft anthology,and other than that to draw and sketch something for my art group and plus do some journal writing. Oh and maybe going back to the family home.

  30. Continuing the great Summer Declutter of 2013! My aim is 10 items a day, and I’m up to 162 so far… new pens and paper wouldn’t count as clutter, would they? πŸ™‚

  31. Hello! My weekend consists of dinner on Friday night with my husband, a funeral for his uncle on Saturday morning πŸ™ , church with my 89 year old (!) Grammy on Saturday afternoon, a baby shower on Sunday afternoon, and a whole lot of procrastination related to my class! It’s going to be a busy one!

  32. A cold, wet weekend is coming up where I live so I’ll be snuggling under a blankie watching movies, writing a letter to my 10yo nephew and maybe a bit of zen-doodling πŸ™‚

  33. If the weather is good, I’ll do some running. If not, I’ll sit around admiring my new Blackwing Pearls.

  34. Well, it is our custom to see the blockbuster movie the next weekend. So Man of Steel here we come. Whooosh!

  35. I hope to get some R&R this weekend. I’ve been pretty tired lately. Some pen&paper time would be lovely too. πŸ™‚

  36. My weekend are basically just practicing how to sketch, draw, and paint. Nothing much with family nor traveling or letter-writing but I would like to practice my artistic skill.

  37. I’m going up to Boulder City near Boulder Dam for lunch with a friend. The rest of the weekend will be spent catching up on letters I owe to my pen friends.
