Since discovering Give Aways on the net, I've entered a few :) Every now and then I would see one that was sponsored by Carolina Pad and Paper, however they were US only. So being in Canada meant I couldn't enter. I've looked through their site many times admiring their wonderful products that would help me organize my Blog World. Trying to keep track of all the Feature & Give Aways has almost become a part-time job! I have been using a huge desk calendar, but it just doesn't look good or help the office look neat and tidy. So I was thrilled when Carolina Pad and Paper offered to send me some of their products to review, along with a give away that would be open to Canadians as well as Americans.
Carolina Pad and Paper has just come out with a new collection named "Sasquatch". Why Sasquatch? Because they are aware of the impact making paper has on the environment and the importance of recycling. But they can explain it much better than I can. This is what is printed in the cover of each product from the Sasquatch Collection:
Leave Nothing but Tracks.
Sasquatch is a legendary creature who lives harmoniously within his wooded surroundings. Living far beyond the limits of where most men dare to go, he lives off the land, taking only what he needs and leaving little behind. Sasquatch lives a truly "green" life, and we are trying to follow in his footsteps.
At Carolina Pad and Paper, we know the future depends on our commitment to reduce the impact our business has on the environment. Sustainability of our forests is our highest priority, which is why we are actively taking steps to reduce our wood usage. Pruchasing products made with renewable resources, helps preserve our forests for all the creatures, bit and small.
In finding new ways to make eco-friendly paper products, we will help Sasquatch by leaving nothing but tracks.
You have to love a company that makes beautiful products to organize your life and is concerned about their impact on the environment. The products in this collection are made with recycled materials. The package I received included a 1" binder, One Subject Notebook, Journal, Ideal Book and a Clutch, all from the Sasquatch Collection. They are beautiful! I absolutely LOVE the color scheme, it's not just for girls. Any boy would love these. Sasquatch is macho isn't he?
I also like the fact that everything is ringed. Makes writing much easier. The Journal is the perfect size to fit into my purse, so I can write down all my blogging ideas where ever I happen to be. The Ideal book is beside my computer. It is divided into 3 sections by 2 plastic tabbed dividers, perfect -> one section for each of my blogs! It also has 1 double sided pocket. The clutch is also beside the computer, holding 3 pens, a clicker pencil, white out ez correct and 2 highlighters with room for more. The binder is in the Kitchen, will keep all the recipes I print in it. Just have to get some dividers yet.
The day after I received the package with the Sasquatch items I got another package with items from the Kendal Collection: One Subject Notebook, Journal, Planner and a Pen! Again - Amazing!! The Planner is wonderful. It's a 19 month planner with a calendar at the beginning of each month and lots of room to write on each day of the week. The pen was used to write the review, before I typed it. The pen doesn't just look wonderful, it works really well, writes smoothly. These are so pretty I don't have to worry about hubby or the boys wanting them!
There is only one drawback to owning products from Carolina Pad and Paper. Now I want to buy something from each series! Oh dear. LOL They do have a long list of stores that carry their products on their website. I do need a new desk calendar and they have some really lovely ones.
