Keep Calm and Link Up #26 {and a GIVEAWAY by Gadanke!}

Hey, hey, it’s Thursday!!!  Time to (Keep Calm &) link up and party with the four of us!
Before we begin the party, let’s start things off with something for FREE, shall we?  How about a giveaway?!

I’m thrilled to share with you today a totally awesome company,  Gadanke  invites everyone, young and young at heart, to celebrate your story!

Take a look at the beautiful handmade journal my friend Meredith from

Wait Til Your Father Gets Home won a while back..


Katie, the master-mind behind Gadanke, is a story-catcher. She believes story is power. It enriches our lives, challenges us to dream bigger, and strengthens future generations (I love that).
Her handmade journals are filled with enticing writing prompts to help you draw out your stories and keep a successful journal. What makes you jump out of bed in the morning? What makes you feel alive? The award-winning prompts at Gadanke help you explore and document who you are and what you believe.
