Make and Takes for Kids Book Giveaway

Earlier in the year, I photographed 50 of Marie LeBaron’s clever crafts for her brand-new book Make and Takes for Kids: 50 Crafts Throughout the Year. I just got my copies and it’s really cute, with simple crafts you can do with your kids with items found around the house.
If you aren’t familiar with Marie’s blog, check out Make and Takes, your one-stop site for adorable and simple kids crafts. For more crafting, check out the book’s publisher, Wiley Craft’s blog here.

Kicking off Marie’s blog tour, I’m giving away a copy of Make and Takes for Kids: 50 Crafts Throughout the Year. To enter, simply leave a comment here with your favorite craft supply.

You may enter once daily and each Facebook post, blog post, or tweet that links back to this giveaway will also give you another chance to win!

Deadline: Sunday at midnight.

Donna Hay Seasons

I just received my copy today and I have to admit… I’d forgot I’d ordered it. It was so long ago and since it came from England, it took way too long to get here.

But I’m glad it did because everything Donna Hay does makes me so incredibly happy. A few online magazines popping up have bits of copying –but nothing compares to the original.

Food Heroes Book Giveaway!

Did you know I know Girl Hunter? True story. We actually went to the same culinary school and when she finally moved to the Bay Area, we became good friends through our mutual friend, Worthie.

We call Georgia the “real” Jamie Oliver of food because she actually farms/fishes/hunts-to-table for her food adventures. She recently released her first book, Food Heroes that “tells the story of sixteen culinary artisans across the world, who are fighting to preserve their food traditions.” It’s SUCH a great book and it’s all I hear about on twitter and blogland and she’s nice enough to offer a giveaway to you!

Leave a comment of your favorite culinary adventure (even if that means only opening a box of canned soup) for a chance to win Georgia’s book. Deadline is Sunday night at midnight. Winner to be announced Monday.

Georgia links: Website, Blog, Twitter, Book.

the night before worthie’s wedding, we were punching confetti and getting blisters.
