Autographed Bookplates & a little giveaway!

The night before the Vida Vegan Con, I realized that many of my favorite vegan cookbook authors would be there... and it would be fun to have them sign all my cookbooks. But I already knew I'd be coming home with a bulging suitcase full of treats, so I didn't want to lug all my books along. Instead, I whipped up some little bookplates! I did a little drawing of our dog Snoopy, wearing a chef's hat and holding a whisk (my favorite cooking utensil!)... scanned it in to the computer, and printed them out on sticky paper. Perfect!

In the end I got autographs from Byanna Clark Grogan, Terry Hope Romero, Dynise Balcavage, Julie Hasson, Joanna Vaught, & Colleen Patrick Goudreau. Somehow I still managed to miss some amazing authors, but I'm not complaining! It was so fun to come home and stick them in their respective cookbooks!

Anyhow, I had some bookplates leftover, so I thought I'd do a little giveaway. I'll send a set of 10 Snoopy-style cookbookplates to the lucky winner. You can put "From the Kitchen of {Your Name Here}", and lend your books out with faith that they will return to you, or you can save them for book signings and such, and get them autographed like I did!

This giveaway is open to people in all parts of the world! Just leave a comment! I will pull out a winner next Wednesday, Sept 14th (it's my aunt's birthday and my grandpa's birthday... so that seems like as good a day as any!).

  2. I was lucky enough to win one of your amazing recipe pamphlets, so I know I have no business entering this giveaway. . . but I just love your artwork that much! :D These are such a great idea, and look sooo cute. And now you have all those fabulous autographs on them, too! (PS Are you on FB or twitter so I can link to this?)

  5. You've really inspired me with your creativity! I'm curious how you did the bookplates. Do you send your design to a company? I'd love to try this myself for gifts! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. What a great idea to just bring along bookplates instead of packing up your book collection! And the drawing is super cute!
