The further I get away from the 2014 XOXO Festival the more I realize what it was truly about. The conference was great, the social activities were a blast, but the people I met - that is what is going to stick with me the most from my trip out to Portland.
I spent a lot of time hanging out with Sarah from Candyspotting (SHE CUTS PAPER WITH LASERS!!!) who served as a gracious host and official Portland tour guide, along with her wonderful family. She also challenged the way I think and opened my eyes to so many things. We made fast friends, and have been in touch frequently since XOXO to discuss what we took away from the festival. That is what it is all about.
Sarah knows full well that the readers of The Pen Addict are Field Notes junkies and she was kind enough to offer up her sealed 3-pack of XOXO 2014 Edition Field Notes for a giveaway. How cool is that?
Here is how you can win one of the most unique Field Notes editions I have ever laid eyes on:

Sarah didn't ask me to link to her site but I am. Check out her work at Candyspotting if you want your mind blown. I have seen her work in person and it is jaw-dropping. Thanks for doing this Sarah!
