Interview with Boygirlparty and Giveaway!

Hi! Kam here with a little interview with Susie of Boygirlparty PLUS a giveaway that will have you super excited to make your next list! A couple of months back, I took a mini poll on Twitter to help me select between two cute notepads for a giveaway, and today I'm giving away the one with the most votes!

About Boygirlparty
I'm a painter who creates products featuring my original artwork and imagery, inspired by music, nature and joy. I named my company Boygirlparty so the word would imply the youthful, excited & energetic feeling of my work (hopefully!) I started crafting under the name Boygirlparty back in 2001, while I was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design studying illustration.

Hummingbird To Do List

Where do you get your inspiration for your notepads?
All my stationery is based off stationery I've made for my own use originally! I used to compulsively create to-do lists for myself, or stationery to write letters on. The imagery is derived from paintings I've done, or doodles I've made in my own sketchbook.

Blue Owl To-Do List

Do you make lists?
I'm obsessed with to-do lists. Nothing feels more satisfying than crossing a task off and knowing it's been accomplished :) Lists help me keep track of everything I need to remember so I don't feel like I'm always mentally burdened with having to remember it all... also, sometimes the very act of writing a list helps me remember the things I have to do with more clarity. I also make "Don't forget to pack" lists, shopping lists, people to call/write lists, etc.

Do you do other daily journaling?
Yes, I keep a journal (My own design!), a sketchbook (top secret), a blog, and a twitter account

 For ONE WEEK only,
