2nd place

Our 2nd place Earth Day entry... Anna Haasen under the microscope with Ecojot!
And this is what Anna had to say... "I love the colourful designs and thicker (recycled!) paper of your Ecojot notebooks. They are perfect for toting around the laboratory where I’m currently training to be a medical laboratory technician in clinical genetics. The post-grad program is very hectic and my Ecojots help keep me on track in an attractive and eco-friendly way. The pocket ecoWorkbooks always reside in my lab coat and are perfect for jotting down details on the run (and for grocery lists)!" 
Thanks Anna, with love from all at Ecojot.

On the Designer Jots blog, we hosted an Earth Day Giveway/contest. Entries had to be in some way connected with Ecojot.. a doodle, a sketch, your most personal thoughts... whatever creative way you use Ecojot. Well the entries were fabulous, and i'm posting the winner today, plus 2nd, 3rd + 4th contestants in the next few days.
Winner is Ania from Albuquerque, New Mexico. She went for a hike, collected an assortment of leaves, grasses and herbs and pressed them in between pages of Ecojot. Next she created a beautiful Ecojot logo made from her pressed plants. Fantastic effort and beautiful result. We all love it!

An apple a day

As we all know "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away", as the old adage goes. Micheline, who uses Ecojot Notebooks and Sketchbooks everyday has this to say... "It's a sketchbook of painted apples. I started it because one of my teachers always said that the best way to learn how to paint was to paint an apple a day.  The dots beside my name indicate the date I painted it (March 8, 2008).
