School's Out Giveaway!!

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend~ I didn’t make a june month animation, so here’s one for all the summer months. ^^ (and if it’s not summer for you, please enjoy it anyways because I loved making the color palettes and patterns~)

Hi, everyone!

I can't believe it's summer break already, but I CAN believe how relieved I am! No more early mornings, no more homework, and definitely no more exams... Even though I still have so much planned for the summer — including a job, trips to the cottage, and many different friends' sweet sixteen parties — I think I'll still have more time to blog than during the school year! :)

So, to celebrate, I decided to post a School's Out Giveaway!

The Rules:
  1. There will be one winner. 
  2. Giveaway ends on July 20, 2012 @ 12:01 a.m.
  3. Be a follower (through GFC or RSS).
  4. Be 13 or older.
  5. Live anywhere that The Book Depository ships to (which is basically everywhere!)
  6. Fill out the Rafflecopter form.
The Prize: 

One winner will get to choose any one book of his/her choice from the list of anticipated summer releases below. And trust me, there are A LOT of amazing books coming out this summer! But if you would like another book that releases around this time instead, I could definitely substitute that in as long as it's under $20 (USD). :)

(Covers link to Goodreads.)

OR: Any other summer release book of your choice under $20 (USD).

Just enter through the Rafflecopter widget below:

And that's everything! I'm so excited to be able to have the summer off. If you're school-free like me, I can't wait to see what you're up to next with your new free time! But if you're working through the summer anyways (also like me), I'm still hoping to see a ton of you while I cheer from the sidelines ;)

Enjoy the beautiful beach weather, guys! ♥ (And to those of you on the other side of the hemisphere because I won't forget my lovable Aussies and such ever again have a brrrrrrrilliant winter!)

I’m hoping someone understands what I mean. ^u^; The picture is like a tiny calendar.
…but a part isn’t truthful- I actually can’t dive for my life, but drawing the tiny diver is so fun. ;o;

These adorable pictures are courtesy of chibird! TYSM, Jackie :)



  1. I'm so jealous of you! School here(here means Malaysia) is just getting started and exam is coming closer(urgh!) We'll have our holidays in November though :D Thanks for this awesome giveaway! :D

  2. Oh my sweet, sweet Mimi!! I forget that you're only 16... You are SO mature and AWESOMELY EPIC for your age! Seriously, I was hell on wheels at 16... And at 21... And at 28! :D I do believe you're more mature than I am! Lol

    You are amaaaazing! Very, very proud of you babe! *just thought I'd tell you* :)

  3. Summertime is so much fun when you are a teen! I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  4. Yay! I'm so glad that you can finally chill and read as much as you want! I used to love looking forward to the summer holidays, but now I have to work!
    :( I hope you enjoy your holidays! and thanks so much for the giveaway hun! :)

  5. Awwwww! You're generous heart is at it again!!! Thanks Mimi! You are so good to us.

    I'm so glad you now have the whole summer to look forward to. Oh, the possibilities. Just don't go getting yourself in trouble...well, at least not the serious kind. The less serious kind is not so bad.

    Man, you are really making me miss my summer days. Now that I have to work full time to survive, I wish I could go back in time and just have a carefree summer like that adorable illustration. *longing sigh* Well, I guess I could always look forward to retirement. Or, that hot billionaire that is going to fall madly in love with me and force me to quit my job. Wonder which will come first. LOL

    Happy Summer!

  6. Yay for being out of school Mimi! That was always the best feeling in the world:):) I wish I still had summer vacation. Stupid having to work so I can pay bills. *shakes fist at job*

  9. Yay! Happy summer vacation, Mimi! My last summer vacation just ended. It's the first week of my senior year in college now and I'm already so busy with school stuffs! I won't be having a summer vacation after I graduate and everything will be about work. Hopefully I can still squeezed my blog when that time comes. No, I think I would have to include my blog in my schedule and dedicate an exclusive time for it. LOL! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Enjoy your summer! :D

The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lesson and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
